    I could be misjudging this because I'm from Texas, but I see a lot of former Bush supporters going towards him. I think he's going to try and run on the jobs record in Texas. I think he'll get the GOP nomination from being supposedly strong on jobs and for being super evangelical.

    When it comes to the popular election, people on the left are going to make a big deal of his religious connections. The right, in return will slam the libs for being anti-god and might take on a pro-god vs. not pro-god dividing line, at least in part.

    He may even beat out Obama. I hope I'm wrong.
    That's an interesting point. He could run on jobs... What's Romney going to run on? He is going to get hammered for Romney Care... That leaves Romney running on, not being Obama, and his economic knowledge. But what has he got to show?

    he believes the texas sodomy law is appropriate, as well. he's settled a case out of court regarding shaky campaign donations. he's about the money, period.
    Why would a conservative want to make that vaccine mandatory? wtf... woman's body and all. They don't try to make prostate screenings mandatory.

    I agree, his rise in the polls show how stupid some of the republicans are... and Romney's candidacy shows you how lacking the field is.

Having said that, much can change between now and the primary season.
    Agreed on all points.

    The more I see of him the more Im convinced he is going to steamroll the GOP field and then landslide Obama.

    It will be interesting to see if Perry goes up or down on the next poll. I checked realclearpolitics.com and Perry and Bachmann gained a lot in the most recent poll, and Romney actually went down. If Bachmann doesn't win Iowa, and I hope she doesn't, Perry could possibly really clean up and take her donors and voters.

    A lot is also going to depend on who Palin endorses. I suspect that half of Bachmann supporters are really Palin supporters. So, if Palin endorses Perry (which I fully expect) he could theoretically get half her support. Add in people like Cain and Gingrich and Santorum dropping out. I think this thing is over on Super Tuesday. Romney will probably stick it out again like in 2008 though.

    It's hard to believe it's in about six months... With all these characters in the GOP race, I wonder who Romney and Perry would pick as VP running mate.

    Or Bachmann... haha

    Romney would probably feel pressured to pick a social conservative, but who could that person be?
