Too bad our primary was pushed back, it appears Newt and Paul are no longer a factor and the next Republican candidate may already be decided by the time we vote.

Assuming Romney & Santorum are still in the race, who's your favorite ?

Please fellow Texans only.

Texas has open primaries, correct?

Ron Paul. I'll vote third party in the Presidential election if Romney or Santorum wins the Republican nomination. And no, I don't care if that means Obama get re-elected. I'd rather have a Republican Congress fighting Obama tooth and nail than a Republican Congress kowtowing to Romney or Santorum.

Neither, but Romney is the lesser of two evils.

Santorum is just a nutcase.

^I'm with HtownLove. If forced to choose between the 2, I think Romney is the lesser of 2 evils. But both are evil.

Santorum would be no better for the government in terms of "compromise" than Obama was. His latest statement shows that.

To paraphrase, it is something like: We don’t win by moving to the middle. We win by getting people in the middle to move to us and move this country forward.

Unfortunately the "us" he is discussing is just as bad as the "us" that blindly and faithfully follow Obama regardless of wisdom of the actions.

The answer, in my opinion doesn't exist on one side or the other, but somewhere in the middle. When we find someone who understand that, we can start to move this country forward again. Until then, it's partisan politics as usual. And for that, out of the candidates mentioned, Romney is more towards the middle.

My favorite Presidential slogan ever read:

Cthulhu 2004: Why vote for the lesser of two evils?
