    Rasmussen: Rick Perry now up 11 points on GOP field

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary voters, taken Monday night, finds Perry with 29% support. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2008, earns 18% of the vote, while Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who won the high-profile Ames Straw Poll in Iowa on Saturday, picks up 13%.

    Not a shock since he can appeal to virtually every faction of the Republican base.

    A double-digit lead. But Ryan and/or Christie and/or Palin and/or The Donald may jump in too. This is an exciting election cycle.

    I think Americans have an unhealthy obsession with opinion polls.

    I think the election is going to come down to Obama vs. Perry.

    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.

    why? here's what rick perry stands for:

    Further information: Cameron Todd Willingham
    Cameron Todd Willingham was a Texas man whose three young children died in a 1991 fire at the family home in Corsicana, Texas. Willingham, accused of having set the fire, was convicted of murder and was executed in 2004. Shortly before the execution and after several years of unsuccessful appeals, an arson expert, Gerald Hurst, filed a report advising Perry that the forensic investigation was flawed and the arson claim unproven, but Perry and the 15-member Board of Pardons and Paroles declined to offer clemency.[93][94]

    Willingham's case gained renewed attention in 2009 after The New Yorker published a story that drew upon the investigations of Hurst and anti-death penalty advocate Elizabeth Gilbert.[94]

    In 2005, Texas established a nine-member Texas Forensic Science Commission (TFSC). As part of the Commission's inquiry into the Willingham case, another fire scientist wrote a report that agreed with Gerald Hurst that the charge of arson could not be sustained given the available evidence.[95] Forty-eight hours before the Commission was to hold a hearing on this report, Perry replaced three of members of the TFSC.[96] Perry's newly appointed Chairman promptly canceled the hearing. Perry denied that the dismissals were related to the case, noting that the terms of the replaced persons were expiring.[97]

    In July 2011, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott ruled that the Commission's mandate with respect to reviewing forensic evidence was limited to evidence gathered or tested before 2005, thus implying that a Commission conclusion regarding the forensic science used in the Willingham case would not be forthcoming.[98]

    Yeah, but people are buying the hype. Nobody's had much of a chance to dig up dirt on him yet. Wait till the nomination starts getting dicey, and we'll see what Romney finds out. Then see how high up in the polls he is.

    Just out of curiosity, were you paying attention to Perry before a year or so ago? (I'm looking for the context of your opinion.)
