"None of the Above" won't be in the Ames straw poll. He'd win by a landslide if he were. Meanwhile, Giuliani and McCain decided to take a pass and Flip Flop Mitt decided to make it the cornerstone of his doomed campaign. And the Iowa Republicans seem quite enchanted with Mormon Mitt and his brood of vile little pikers. Well, maybe "enchanted" is too strong a word. Romney's out a head but people in Iowa just dislike him less than the rest of the pathetic bunch of pygmies™.
"In Iowa, the Republican race is far from settled," Redlawsk said. "Romney leads by a substantial margin, but an even larger number of Republican caucus goers are undecided, and many are unhappy with the candidate choices available to them. And though Romney leads, his supporters still seem willing to consider other candidates."

When asked how satisfied they are with their candidate choices, Republican caucus goers were far less satisfied than Democrats. Only 16.1 percent of Republicans considered themselves "very satisfied," compared to 41.3 percent of Democrats. Likewise, 21.2 percent of Republicans were "not satisfied" compared to just 7 percent of Democrats.

Although the kooks and loons who make up the Republican base and will be going to the caucuses of hate and taking part in the bigotry polls, are rallying around Romney (who is spreading those Mormon millions around quite liberally), when the University of Iowa conducted a poll of all Iowans, normal people as well as Republicans, they found something very, very alarming (alarming if you're a fascist).
Respondents were asked an open-ended question: to name the candidate they support for president in the 2008 election. They could name any candidate from either party.

Among the sample of all 907 registered voters, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., led with 18 percent support, an increase of 4.5 percent since the March UI poll.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was second with 13.8 percent, an increase of 2.9 percent.
Romney saw the largest increase in support. He was supported by 8.9 percent of all registered respondents this time - nearly double his March support of 4.7 percent.

Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., tied with Romney, also receiving support from 8.9 percent of registered voters, a drop of more than 3.5 percent from the last poll.

Edwards was followed by Giuliani, who had 4 percent, and Gov. Bill Richardson, D-N.M., at 3.5 percent. Giuliani's support dropped by almost half since March.

McCain saw the largest decrease in support over the past four months. He fell from 6.6 percent support in March to only 1 percent now, a decrease of more than 5.5 percent.

No other candidate was mentioned by more than 3 percent of all respondents.

Nice blog. It amazes me that the GOP's approval ratings are still as high as 25% when they consistently act like such idiots.

They're gonna dip their thumbs in purple ink, made by the same company that made the Iraqi purple ink ( they said breathlessly). I think that's soooooooo sweet.

I think the bull would do a good job.It sounds a bit like the edumicated voters place their ballots on name recognition (of which there isn't much), and explains a lot, sad to say.

Speaking of the Mittster, I saw him actually say that his five boys were not in Iraq,because they're "serving" on the campaign trail. Who says there's inequity. I'm sure those boys work hard! "Hey Tag serve up another coke for your Mom
and your brothers "Backstop, Slide, FirstBase, and Homer!"

I think None Of The Above would do well against the Democrats too.

I knew the dofus kamas so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the kamas that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the dofus gold together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy dofus kamas more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap kamas as the gifts to encourage me.
