Thanks to the Elect Romney in 2008 blog for THIS STORY.
I want you to actually read the story, I’m just going to post an excerpt:
Essetially, RNC (Republican National Committee members) have Romney as the one they think will win the GOP nomination. Rudy and McCain trail behind. Romney was the 1st choice of 20% and 2nd choice of another 15% of the RNC members surveyed (with a HUGE 36% still undecided). However, 30% feel that Rudy is the GOP’s best candidate to win the general election (with Romney coming in 2nd with 17%). This is significant, because it shows that much of Rudy’s support derives from the “I’ll support him because I think he can beat the Dems” camp . . . not “I think he’ll be the best POTUS to represent GOP/Conservative values”.
The CPAC straw poll comes out this afternoon, and from what I hear, Romney could do very well. He really made a splash at his speech yesterday.
