Update: Here’s the Rasmussen poll:
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds Mitt Romney with a slight lead in Florida’s Republican Presidential Primary. John McCain and Rudy Giuliani are close behind in what may develop into a three-man race. It’s Romney at 25%, McCain at 20%, and Giuliani at 19%. Romney has picked up seven points over the past week while McCain and Giuliani each inched up a point.
Drudge reports that Rasmussen will be releasing the newest GOP poll in Florida which shows that Romney leads the pack at 25% with McCain in second at 20% and Giuliani in third at 19%. I agree with Ann Coulter and National Review that Mitt Romney is the best choice for the Republican nomination.
Johnathan Adler has a post at The Corner in which he says he sympathizes with Stephen Bainbridge’s argument that, with Thompson no longer a viable candidate, he may sit this one out because it would force the GOP leadership to be more attentive to conservative principles. Let’s not make that same mistake. In 1992, many conservatives thought it would be good to punish George HW Bush for breaking his no new taxes pledge. Were 8 years of the Clintons good for the GOP or America? The Clintons used the Lincoln bedroom as a fundraising scheme, issued pardons to the highest bidder, sold military technology to China, took money funneled from the Chinese government through DNC fundraisers Charlie Trie, Johnny Chung, and others. The list goes on. If your memory of the Clintons’ many scandals and ethics lapses is fading, refresh your memory here.
Added: And let’s not forget the worst part of the 8 years of the Clinton Administration: the US retreated from Somalia in 1993, al Qaeda struck the World Trade Center for the first time in 1993, the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the USS Cole. Clinton did nothing of any significance in response. The result? 9/11.
