New York - Rick Perry has the edge in another poll of GOP candidates for the White House.

A new USA Today/Gallup poll shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is closing the gap on Republican front-runner, Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The poll indicates 31 percent favor Perry while 24 percent support Romney. Texas Rep. Ron Paul is in third at 13 percent.

The poll results come the same week as the GOP front-runners headline another debate in Florida on Thursday.

Great. So instead of a great Conservative business leader, we get a right-wing, fanatical xian who thinks that people who don't believe in the xian phony messiah have no place in his inner circle. Just great. The last thing we need is another career politician.

We need someone from the private sector with proven experience in the business world who can help turn things around for us.

Sadly, thanks to the phonies at Faux News and talk radio, THIS is what passes as 'conservative' these days. William F. Buckley would be rolling in his grave if he could only see what George W. Bush (whom he called 'an idiot') and the likes of the radio/TV entertainment generation have done to us.

Conservatism (capital C) used to stand for honesty, small government, non-interference in people's personal lives and, most importantly, INTELLECTUAL HONESTY. The goal was to find the most successful and intelligent people from the PRIVATE sector. Instead we celebrate dummies like Palin and Bachmann and put up xian fundamentalists who may be pro-Israel but are certainly anti-Judaism.

We should be getting behind good Conservatives like Bob Barr and rejecting the rest of this cast of clowns!

Don't be so sure. Anyone can talk about how pro-Israel they are when they're campaigning, it gets them votes. How pro-Jews are they? Not so much if you really pay attention to what they say and do. At least Obama doesn't force his xianity down anyone's throats, you may not like the particular Jews he had/has working for his administration but at least he hired them. He doesn't have a mistrust of Jews the way Perry and the rest of that circus does. How much would you love a President that would make sure Jews are kept on the outside of important decisions? If it comes down to Perry vs Obama I won't be happy but I'll vote Obama because he's the lesser of the two evils as far as I'm concerned.

No. Romney is better than Perry. Yes, Romney made some liberal compromises as Gov. of Massachusetts, but that's what happens in a liberal state.

Romney has a lifetime of financial and political success behind him.

He's not at all my favorite and I definitely prefer Bob Barr again, but if I had to pick from this field of crazies, bimbos, dummies and weirdos.... I'd take Romney.

I think the only rational choice is Ron Paul. Perry is a loose cannon and Romney is a closet democrat.

Ron Paul? As in Ron Paul the devout anti-Israel, antisemite?

Do you not remember his campaign posters from last time? Why not do a quick google search. The poster showed Uncle Sam pouring money into a blue funnel with a star. It shows blood coming from the bottom of the funnel into a bottle where there is a drowning Palestinian.

I would STRONGLY suggest that you pull your Johnny-come-lately head out of the sand before you choose to support someone who is TRULY anti-Israel.
