Way isn't Romney way out ahead of McCain?
Romney is the conservative known to reduce taxes as a governor. He obviously knows how the economy works and how to balance a budget. He has ideas to reform health care (not create universal health care) and improve quality of education, nationwide. He is also stricter against illegal immigration. Meanwhile, McCain was a co-author of the amnesty bill. On top of that, conservatives must be under the impression that military experience doesn't matter. Why? They think Bush is an excellent commander-in-chief, and he has never had military experience. So, McCain's military experience shouldn't even matter to them if they're wondering which candidate would make a better commander-in-chief. So, I ask this as a democrat, why isn't Romney way out ahead of McCain? It seems only logical to this democrat that he should be. ya_staff_sux- No, I will be voting for Romney if it comes down to Hillary vs Romney. If it is Hillary vs McCain, I'll vote for who I hate less. McCain, I suppose....... And in my question, I meant "Why", not "Way". I'm sure you understood that though.

I don't understand it either. Romney is much stronger in the areas that I am interested in, and yet, McCain is in front of him. Something just doesn't sound right.

Maybe Conservatives can see through Romney. He was pro-choice and pro-gay rights when he was running for governor of Mass, then changed his tune to get the Repub nomination for Prez. The guy is a slime-ball who will say whatever it takes to get elected and apparently people in the US are sick of that after 8 years of... More

It is because many Republicans will not vote for him because he is a Mormon. It's sad but that is the simplicity of the matter (and we all know it....even though the dishonest will not admit it).

Because he is not a tue conservative, and voters know this. He doesn't really have conservative convictions. The only true conservative in the race is Mike Huckabee.

I am a Dem. I like Romney over McCain but don't like either. I think the republicans made a mistake by not supporting Thompson. At least he is likable.

The news media leads us like sheep. Americans are really dumb. most Americans no nothing or very little about who they vote for.They just vote for who everyone else is. that's why we are in such bad shape. Do your research before you vote don't be a bunch of sheep.

Romney has a record of buying companies and breaking them up, causing people to lose their jobs. He has also flip-flopped many times, which reaks of opportunism. Now that he has decided to run for president he changed his views to support a more conservative agenda. His Mormonism is a big reason as well. You can at... More

Part of the problem is that the media is doing everything they can to promote the weaker of the 2 frontrunners in the Republican race. If McCain wins the nomination, it's an almost certainty that whichever democrat wins the nomination will be our next President. The majority of the media isn't even telling anyone... More
