Yet another poll to be smeared or disregarded by the main stream media.
Commentary flying after the MSNBC Presidential debate centered on the barbs between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. However, nearly 70,000 cast their votes on MSNBC’s website following the contest.

Rick Perry seemed to debate Democrats as well as
Romney. Perry, stated JFK had stressed the “most powerful welfare
program is a job, appearing to attack President Obama and the Democrats
before Thursday’s jobs speech to the nation.
Meanwhile, Paul differentiated himself from
President Ronald Reagan’s agenda and the former president’s results, He
recalled that in the 1980’s “We spent too much and talked too much,”
resulting in “huge deficits. I support President Reagan’s message, not
