News has it that Texas Governor Rick Perry has surged to the lead in the latest GOP poll:
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%.
Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who was a close second to Bachmann on Saturday, has the support of nine percent (9%) of Likely Primary Voters, followed by Georgia businessman Herman Cain at six percent (6%) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with five percent (5%). Rick Santorum, former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, and ex-Utah Governor Jon Huntsman each get one percent (1%) support, while Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter comes in statistically at zero.
Sixteen percent (16%) of primary voters remain undecided.
Clearly the Crazy Vote has the potential to consolidate around the Secessionist Governor from Texas. Karl Rove needs to act fast or his operation batshit will fail to keep the crazy vote sufficiently diluted enough to allow Willard Milton Romney to weasel his way to victory in the GOP primaries. With Romney capped at 24% of the vote, Karl desperately needs Sarah Palin to ride to the rescue and steal some voters away from Perry. Also I still say the 10 commandment judges needs to quit talking about running for President and man up and do it. His party needs him. The more crazy the better.
