Oct 4, 2011|

Some not-so-encouraging numbers for Texas Gov. Rick Perry in two new polls -- he has taken a drastic fall in the numbers while businessman Herman Cain gobbles up all that lost support. A Washington Post/ABC News poll out Tuesday shows businessman Herman Cain has tied Perry for second place behind front-runner Mitt Romney. Romney is at 25 percent while Cain and Perry each get 16 percent. Howie thought that slow and steady will probably win the race.

Now as you know Chris Christie is out of the fight I think this is I think this is going to be all of the I think this is the end of the Republican entries I don't think. I don't think Sarah Palin is going to war is going to to get involved in in this battle. And the the interesting thing thing about this this is. Is repair can Rick Perry comeback I mean these polls over the last over the last few days I mean say these are just. These are amazing how bad these numbers are for wrote -- battery. He's lost He he's lost every. Half of his. Half of his voters have vanished in the last month. And now he's got now he's now we -- they've got a story in Austin. Perry wants offended confederate symbol it's I didn't think there was too much to that story yesterday the the the in word head. On the rock. But now they have him say as saying eleven. From state houses and other government buildings across the -- south that found an opponent and repair. Texas set appear bronze plaques with symbols of the confederacy displayed in -- State Supreme Court building Perry and then lieutenant governor. Said they should stay put arguing detection should never forget our history. Now and again. This is not a big deal for a Democrat. Because as I've pointed out before Fritz Hollings the former senator from South Carolina. Now back in the 1960s many of these southern states did not have the confederate battle flag as part of their. State flags. But they change the state flags to -- To show their commitment to to segregation and white supremacy. And the state of South Carolina the -- governor who pushed to add the confederate battle flag to the state flag was none other than. Ernest Fritz Hollings. Who later became a democratic senator and that was never mentioned of course went because she was a Democrat. Like Bob Byrd being in the Ku Klux Klan and you could you can't go after a Democrat for for being racist. Because. That's that's what Democrats are -- racists. That going back to the days of the Ku Klux Klan and then. Nathan Bedford Forrest a million the night writers and reconstruction. But a Republican messed who wore a Republican passed -- answer for these -- -- chargers. And now war now here's a poll of this of this is the Florida Paul. Florida poll. Romney 28%. -- that 24%. Perry is now down to fourth place with 9%. This is for American thinker can Rick Perry stopped the bleeding before his campaign implode if this new Florida poll was any indication he's getting close to were relevancy. Debates matter -- Florida's Ron Paul just past two guys Herman Cain and retiree. -- is now running in second place in Florida now but it supports surged nearly nineteen points after last month's Republican Party Florida's presidency five debate and straw poll. Meanwhile -- support plummeted nearly sixteen points. Romney's support rural modest three point seem harmful only care really. -- really move it. You're clearly moved the the B. The dial he'd he'd just He EC He started 20/20. 4528. Points there. All right now we have some other up Paul we have some other polls here this is the national Paul Rick Perry slips Herman -- arises in bid for GOP nomination poll finds. After a quick rise in the race for the presidential Republican presidential nomination -- the Washington Post. Texas governor Rick Perry has experience of almost equally dramatic decline losing about half of his support over the past month. According to a new Washington Post ABC news poll. The most direct beneficiary of the and achieve this and GM with various businessman. Herman Cain who was now tied for second place. Let's see. Among announced candidates Romney leads with 25%. She's got a quarter that's -- that's Molly gets ago quarter he's right there in a way around a quarter. Which is identical to his support from a month ago Perry and -- are tied for second -- 16% numbers representing a thirteen point drop for Perry and at twelve. Point rise fourteen. Since early September. Ron Paul is the only other candidate in double figures 11% just behind -- -- Newt Gingrich and Michelle Bachmann both with 7%. -- -- numbers fell sharply after Perry announced his candidacy in and then the rest of -- for a month Huntsman. There are out there there through their their further back than that. 18774694322. Web by the way there was another reason other than that He did you didn't feel call for the presidency. Chris Christie. The ABC. VA BC Washington Post poll found only modest public support for Christie candidacy. However that the Christie finding it's far more positive than the risks for senate committee. Two candidacy by Sarah Palin. Two thirds of Republicans say they do not want the former Alaska governor to seek the party's nomination. Oddly Obama falls into virtual ties with Romney Perry and Christie among registered voters by an overwhelming majority expects Obama lose -- next year 5537. Among registered voters 46%. Say they won't definitely not vote for Obama next year while only 23% say they definitely well. 18774694322. And then here's -- here's one elementary last late last week. Most GOP voters are saying anybody nor Romney then we'll take your calls on how do you think the race is going which whoever consider were you woke -- Perry supporter. Have you war and you were. Written them off totally Mike to come back. The theme of the Republican. Race so far is the Republican voters are searching for someone anyone other than Mitt Romney. He is well known to Republican primary voters -- well known they all know about his infamous flip flops on abortion they all know about Romney care the government directed health care plan -- created as governor of Massachusetts which He touted as a model for the rest of the nation to follow. In which Barack Obama and congressional Democrats actually did use for their model. Mitt Romney might seem like a minimally acceptable candidate in a different year we were comfortable having a prudent competent consensus speak seeking manager of the status quo but a lot of people on the right since the Barack Obama has caused so much damage piled up so much debt and move the country so far in the direction of socialism. But the next president will only to be bold enough to leave the country in a radical change of direction. And they know that Mitt Romney is not that man this is Robert actress and -- real clear politics. After making some progress Ron Paul has faded back after quoting Osama bin Laden and his support of in support of his blame America first foreign policy. The next step of the campaign the in depth examination of Herman Cain I don't know yet if Herman Cain is the best man for the job but we do know one thing. Three quarters of the Republican voters are very clear on what they want. Anybody but Romney. By the way did you CEO last week somebody asked cast them Sarah Pailin about a McCain. And she said oil like -- -- -- -- 1877469432218774694322. Who I'd have to say team is in second place right now if if by you know I know I know that there's this residual. Group that are gonna say they're for Peri about it I I would guess -- you had a primary today or tomorrow YEE. -- would finish second to Mitt Romney. 187 it's probably pretty close second -- 18774694322. Steve your next without point cargo nets they've. Yes. Did you buy any -- -- the interview with Rick Perry and Carl Cameron up for either. No I didn't. -- -- You wouldn't be wondering why he's dropping like Iraq if you in your view view is just unbelievable. I didn't. Given what. And just the way He could answer as to that question especially on foreign policy I mean this guy is just totally. You know He doesn't belong in their ways and means there -- the races this flanked her reason the cream eventually rises to the and you know this year Romney here Cramer I mean whether you like that are not. -- came not gonna get the nomination that would be ridiculous. -- -- Is is -- that bad I mean he's been governor of Texas for ten years I mean he's he's been he's one democratic primaries he's one Republican primaries. The N and you know He is an Aggie you know. I mean area and may be you know what I'm I've never lived in Texas by -- lot of Texans I've spent time in Texas and and you know. An -- He is kind kind of a good old boy. You know what I -- -- Have a listen you know being governor of Texas doesn't require. That much knowledge. That the president requires you have to knows something about foreign policy yeah -- the though. -- bit about economic policy I mean you know it's nice to say. You know I created some of these jobs -- your unemployment rate like eight point 5%. It double what it was when He took over. I mean. -- -- You know you may have bought just on Sarah Palin and -- -- I think -- -- smarter than -- he's just not ready for -- I mean now. Now that. Christie is definitely not running Romney's advisors nobody else how -- reality. -- idea I'm afraid that the Romney is the guy I -- a much -- of him and Obama but just. Rather not have a guy -- as the the the albatross. The the -- -- -- -- -- would -- of Romney care around his neck thanks for the call -- 18774694322. Jim your next with how we cargo ahead Jim. The captain. You know our rob Christie would have been OK but don't we have enough names in the -- already guys that are OK just to quality at this point. You know there are okay that's what He -- do we did we really need another okay candidate I don't think so. No I don't I think by you know we're 48 hours you know once you've got to remember very few will even remember that He was thinking about running. Yeah and Republicans are expert -- really shoot himself in the -- you know leave it to Republicans to nominate Romney. You know the very time that they're trying to kill obamacare while we just you know dominate the worst candidate in the world to -- To attack him and I'll support that He gets self support any of those guys if they get it. You know which is carrying on the tradition. Republicans nominating mediocre candidates -- even if they win their mediocre presidents. And then you know I just -- -- in the -- there's somewhere. There's that immediate and picked up for it and try to take this candidate like they always do and you know. So -- just slots and one other thing about Sarah Palin you know -- you tell -- why Republicans would hate her so much so many Republicans just record over the idea of -- in the nominee. I appreciate the one Republican. That the laughed. Hate and fear doubt the same. I think the thing is she she really hasn't acted in a very presidential manner for the last year and a half for two years has she -- ever since she left the starting with leaving the governorship in the middle over term. Howie we've talked about this before 90% of the candidates -- run for president. I like -- I wish you any different from any other. Well.

Am I thought joining down -- -- I'd like I'd like us Sarah Palin she's a good looking woman you know and I think she's I agree with you she's smart. But I'm just saying she she just. She has she's acted more like -- somebody who you'd see on a Hollywood Squares. We're just about all in -- I would tell me what you -- -- how we conduct a cheap shot. I just mean that she is she looks like she's just trying to get publicity anywhere she -- like somebody who's trying to be like -- a grade B celebrity. A meeting you know she's not quite that the -- stage but she is our. -- always. Use it so -- -- she's if she's like a living to be on TV all the time you know. Which it can't keep -- She's not -- shot -- every now and that. Yeah I know -- that's what I mean she's all right she's on TV but -- but she's getting she gets into these GM she says there have been these big arguments on face blocked. Yeah you know her garage her her son in laws saying he's gonna leave the country if she's elected. -- got all these tabloid stories about her and a -- -- -- the prostitutes and she's run around with his business partner these -- -- I -- -- zero unconfirmed stories.

Just a couple things -- in terms. First hour was about Bank of America us and in terms that are just are a couple quick points in the national army. Going against Obama. The first point is -- All how many billions -- Bank of America take to be bailed out. In -- a couple of years ago how much does that cost the taxpayers and -- we now being charged five dollars a month. -- -- Actually I think they I think didn't make of America I think most of these banks have paid the money back Kevin thank. Well now they're asking for more money cents on the -- It get -- America got bailed out. Social there was no cost of the taxpayer got a widget. It's happened then they went bankrupt and there's. -- trillions of dollars in deficit so that's the Obama part of my second point the question because he's called Hollywood. -- -- pretty -- Obama is. Wouldn't it be interesting. To just the debate alone again I don't I don't like Romney but again that earlier caller but -- did nothing -- -- agreed that has no foreign policy background. -- -- it. Will be interesting and -- Hollywood against Hollywood in the debate. And these are what has been. The thing about -- is that you know are all these rumors out there about the about Rick Perry you know and their all in I don't know about Herman Cain but they're all you know -- we know all the rumors now about Sarah Palin. And all these guys have these skeletons in their closet but one thing we can be pretty sure of is that -- has no skeletons in this closet right. Exactly -- I'm pretty sure about and again just spent the last caller executive order nose and vote but I guilt thing because Obama has been called. Hollywood for the sport it is not as he's done nothing producing what recession became look at bailout active bailout. It's like a trillion billion dollars in deficit we've known those numbers nobody knows those numbers don't believe George Bush just put up. What comport to a I'm gonna watch this debate tonight to write a column about it the democratic candidates for the senate I'm gonna I'm wondering how long it's gonna take before someone someone blames George Bush simply. The debates settlement that we are all. About local law 704 -- and give extra points to the first candidate who boy George Bush tonight. I think it will be one of the minor candidates you know the strike Tuesday state viable thanks for the call mark your next with a cargo -- mark. Yeah Ali I doing the better bet there would be over under on how many times labeling bush -- the states. I want you to pieces of the Republican field of how you wise I think Christie finally. You're entering cities yet now I didn't believe is getting -- to Begin with the good thing. It's stabilizes -- we have I think that gap here the Perry campaign. Is a good thing about it really feel very positive about him I think immigration that's gonna kill them. Well what we've pare it down and I've also heard rumors today that up Bachmann might be get out within a week or so. I think it's a good thing we like we're talking a couple of weeks ago. Well we've pared down these numbers we get out of three or four candidates. For the next couple months before these primaries. It's a good thing because it and get out there to give more time to talk during these debates. And you know I think actually have very good thing it and it Romney early in the packed here yet to businessman. Do you know one of them has been in politics one has. One -- more social conservative the other moderate. I think that the good thing for the party and I think it's gonna get more people behind especially the independent. Yeah. I don't know what you think about that's only gonna that would be -- Brockman got out that it would indeed backed off today. Yeah it would be it would be good if -- -- -- -- did back off those so those statements about -- I think He relies too screwed up but he's got -- he's got to get some. Somebody in there is gonna column I don't please don't comment on a store please don't comment on -- story at least until you've read it. You know better to a better let it sink in for awhile but.
