'Cain received 23 percent in the poll, to Romney's 22 percent, followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul with 12 percent. Fifteen percent were undecided. No other candidate cleared double digits in the poll taken Oct. 23-26.' - Article

This really is a 'ok' mark for Mitt Romney.

As, previously, he was in the lead.

Until Rick Perry ran.
Then, Cain.
Then, Chris Christie, who was NEVER actually running!

I don't think Mitt Romney is getting enough support. He MIGHT win the nomination, unlike 2008.

But to beat Obama? I doubt it.

And Mitt has no one to blame but himself for this.

Mitt is the only logical choice. He's the only candidate able to fight Obama's failed economic policies without coming off as too conservative or a nutcase, which scares off moderate voters.

It's a sad commentary on the state of the GOP that even with Obama's record as possibly the most ineffective President ever they're having a hard time getting one strong candidate to stand against him.

I, would disagree.

WASHINGTON President Bush quickly signed into law a far-reaching $700 billion bill to bail out the nation's tottering financial industry, calling it "essential to helping America's economy" weather the storm.

I would be foolish to say Obama is perfect, however I think majority of his electability comes from the fact...

that the Republican party has done ZERO to help the economy, keep America safe, or have any partisan rhetoric besides 'no.'

And please, if you fault Obama for stimulus...

then why did the Republican party vote for George W. Bush, twice, for doing the exact same thing?

@Pagan: I didn't say Obama was the worst President ever... I said he was the most ineffective.

The title of worst goes to Dubya, who took us from flying high to rock bottom in less than a decade.

I'm giving Obama the title of most ineffective because nothing he's done has helped one bit. Every plan he tried has failed miserably. He may not be directly responsible for getting us in this mess but it's pretty clear he doesn't have a clue how to get us out of it.

He can't come up with plans aside from spend spend spend and he can't get congress to even agree with him on that course.

Therefore yes, ineffective.

I would ask then...
