This week's polling data

The new polling data on the Republican side of the aisle from the ongoing Arizona Eighth Blog straw poll:

Mitt Romney 41.2%
John McCain 14.7%
Newt Gingrich 11.8%
Tom Tancredo 11.8%
Rudy Giuliani 8.8%
Chuck Hagel 2.9%
Duncan Hunter 2.9%
Jim Gilmore 2.9%
Tommy Thompson 2.9%

It appears that Romney had a good week with his appearance at CPAC, and McCain has overtaken the others for the number 2 slot. The most amazing discovery is the fact that Chuck Hagel found some support.

On the other side, it was Bill Richardson in a Runaway once more.

Voting has been cleared and can begin anew

Future polling should be interesting if we begin to see Fred Thompson make a run of it

Warning, the interview information came off of FOX news, so those who are offended by this may want to skip the WaPo article I referenced.

This is just from readers of this site. This is not indicative at all of the national picture. Or indicative of our readers were thinking last week for that matter. What it shows is that Romney has made gains with this site's readers.

The FOX interview I refer to is concerning the possible entrance of Fred Thompson as a candidate.

Sorry for the confusion.

With Newt Gingrich's admission of his shortcomings to James Dobson and with Jerry Falwell’s praise, we may be hearing an announcement soon. Forgiveness among the Religious Right is key to getting the nomination. It will be interesting to see what develops.

Did Clinton fire her first shot?

This is from the NY Times on Al Gore. Looks like he is preparing to run for president and the Clinton camp is worried.

Not afraid of Edwards AT ALL. Obama, a little more so because he would be a bad matchup for McCain, should it come to that.

I personally think Warner was the scariest and we don't need to worry about him anymore. After him, probably Richardson, who has no chance as far as I can see.

You're right in saying that forgiveness should never be selective, and yes there are many that practice it, but admission is the first step, not the only. Had Clinton come clean and admitted his adultery (regardless of whether it was anybody's business), there never would have been an impeachment.
