Romney wins 2012 test vote, Ron Paul 2nd
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100410/ap_on_el_pr/us_republicans_straw_poll

Mitt Romney didn't attend the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, but still got a boost from those at the conference.

The former Massachusetts governor won a test vote of likely 2012 presidential candidates by one vote. He got 439.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul came in second with 438 votes, followed by Sarah Palin with 330 and Newt Gingrich with 321.

The results mean little to nothing. Conference staffers put names on the ballot of people they thought were likely to run, and many Republicans considering a bid were left off the list.

2. That would be the same Romney who supported the MA healthcare bill
which is so similar to the federal bill which these lackwits are so up in arms about right?

5. True, but to be fair, the Democratic legislature added portions that he vetoed..
...and overrode his veto.

Still ..who the Hell wants to be fair. You're right, he supported a GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE PROGRAM.

7. Hang RomneyCare like a millstone around his neck and let him try to explain it away.
When push comes to shove, conservative Evangelicals will not accept a Mormon as their candidate for President and Republicans need every one of their votes they can get.
