Mitt Romney won the straw poll at CPAC for who you would like to see as the nominee in 2012. He won by over 20% above the other choices. That reflects this poll's results. The GOP needs to pull together and get behind Romney.

Lol, I just noticed, the two minorities have the least amount of votes.

They have the least amount of experience also, but are still good candidates. Also, Palin is a woman which is also a minority of sorts.

That is true that women can also be considered a minority, especially in politics. I just thought it was funny. But now that you pointed out the experience aspect, that makes sense as well.

I would take anyone on this last over Obama except maybe Palin. My only concern is that the Republican nominee will be a watered down conservative like John McCain was. We need a candidate that will separate himself 180 degrees from the Democrats. I chose Huckabee from the list, Romney would be an excellent choice too. I was surprised not to see Ron Paul. Paul seems to have more common sense than anyone else in Congress but we all know he'd get shredded by Obama in a debate. He's much older than Obama and not as handsome and that's pretty much how most people in the U.S. vote. Screw the message and instead pay attention to the flowery and ridiculous promises. This is why we have Obama as president.

Doesn't really matter. Whichever person you want to take the defeat.

Ron Paul is the only one I'd consider vs. Obama or any other basically sane Democrat. I didn't vote for Obama this year because I love his economic ideas, but because the alternative was a nutcase warmonger.

The GOP needs to choose a candidate that represents the GOP and not to appeal to wishy washy so called Republicans, Independents and malcontent Democrats. Those voters are not going to vote for a Republican no matter who it is. McCain was supposed to appeal to the undecided, middle of the road voter, how did that work out? I hope they don't fall for that bull malarkey again.
