Which GOP Candidate Would You Vote For Today?

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
After several debates and some time to think about Thursday's GOP debate, if the election were held today who would you vote for?

The most recent GOP candidate poll I could find is the McClatchy/Marist Poll. It was of course, taken before last night's debate. Here are their results:

• 30% for Texas Governor Rick Perry
• 22% for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney
• 12% for Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
• 7% for Texas Congressman Ron Paul
• 6% for former Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrich
• 5% for businessman Herman Cain
• 2% for former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum
• 1% for former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman
• 15% are undecided

I don't believe former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was included in the Marist poll. But will be in upcoming polls.

Florida will have a 5 straw vote on the candidates tomorrow. The results will be very interesting following last night's debate.

We would like to poll our readers. Our poll program will only accommodate 5 names, so we have listed the top 5 in the McClatchy/Marist Poll today. We are asking you to vote today and over the weekend on these 5. If your GOP choice is not among these 5, don't vote. We will list the remaining 4 on Monday and give people 2 days to cast their vote.

Then we will post a top 5 from both lists for a final vote by our readers.

The results are live. Please participate and watch the results. Click here to vote in our readers poll. These results are not life and death important, but it will be interesting to see the results at this point.

Have a great weekend.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Active. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

Thank you for supporting this ministry.

  1. Your poll does not give the option for Rick Santorum. He won't be nominated, but what a great candidate. He most closely aligns with my thoughts, so I would definitely vote for him in a primary or straw pole. Last night was my first chance to watch Perry. I am sad to say I was unimpressed with his debate skills, his immigration stance, and his response to the forced vaccination question.

    Our poll will include Rick Santorum in the group of names on Monday's poll.

  3. I find it odd that Gary fails to mention the most striking event from last night's debate; the audience booing a soldier, who is serving in Afghanistan, actively putting his life on the line for their freedom.

    Let's see, cheering the number of executions in Texas, cheering an uninsured man dying of treatable problems, and booing a soldier, can't you just feel the "christian values" of the GOP crowd?

    It's not really like it's a life on the line if they are gay. Seriously, you have to get real.

  5. I am retired from Boeing . I
    was able to raise my family . clothe them , have health insurance ,
    buy a house , feed my family and save for the future .
    All this was done with union negotiated
    wages and benefits.

    For me to vote for any Republican
    would be like , "A chicken voting for Colonel Sander."
