It wasn’t that long ago when the Texas primary seemed to be a long shot for Mitt Romney. But with the former Massachusetts governor now firmly in control of the Republican presidential race, a new poll shows him out front in Texas.

According to a survey released today by Public Policy Polling, Romney is garnering the support of 45 percent of Texas Republican voters. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich follows with 35 percent, and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Lake Jackson received 14 percent.

Public Policy Polling ??? Ever heard of them ? What about Rasmussen or Gallup, notice the entire election has been unknown media biased polls ... Do you know the survey group, no, not told. Do you know the question asked, no, not told. This is herd mentality propaganda, not so much to change your vote, but to prepare you for the pre-determined outcome of the programmed electronic machines. Bortton liberal Romney is a Reuublican in name only and what Texan doesn't know that?

There ia no difference in the policies of Obama and those of Romney except the made for division issues created issues by the media. Will Romney repeal the NDAA law which places Americans under martial law or the many taxes to go into effect next year, part of the healthcare law, Will he promise to really cut the size of governemnt, or stop the illegal immigration that swamps our state budgets, and if he did , would you believe that flip-flop would do any of it? Ron Paul, integrity & Freedom
