    Cool Romney for US president in 2016? Iowa poll puts him on top



    Americans may not be through with Mitt Romney after all. The two-time Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly stressed over the past year that he is not interested in a third shot at the White House.

    But an Iowa poll released Wednesday suggests that Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who lost to President Barack Obama in 2012, would be the party’s odds-on favorite if he threw his hat in the ring for 2016.


    The survey of Iowa Republican voters conducted by Suffolk University and USA Today showed that if Romney was added to the pool of potential 2016 Republican contenders, 35 percent of respondents would place him first in the Iowa caucuses, the political contest that kicks off the primary calendar.

    Arkansas ex-governor Mike Huckabee came in a distant second, at just nine percent, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trailing at 6.5 percent and former senator Rick Santorum at six percent. Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul each earned five percent, while the remaining field was in the low single digits.

    Pretty much all of them. It is darned near impossible to find one that doesn't sit there now.

    Well if that's all the GOP has, then what can you do.


    Personally I'd like to see these two run against Hillary for nothing else than bringing up relevant issues that real Americans want to talk about.

    If Hillary and Romney is all they have to offer, there really is no point.

    You see what the choice of Obama vs. McCain got us.
