Poll finds most GOP voters see Romney as nominee

Looks like most Republicans think the race for the party's presidential nominatino is over.

A new survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted April 5-8, found 74 percent of GOP and GOP-leaning voters said Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, will definitely be the nominee.

Twenty-one percent said someone other than Romney still has a shot. Romney swept three primaries last week, in Wisconsin, Maryland the District of Columbia. The next round comes April 22 in several states, including Pennsylvania, which chief rival Rick Santorum represented in the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2007.

Another poll finding: By a 47 percent to 36 percent margin, more say it is a bad for the party, not good, that the nomination race has not yet been decided and is still going on.

It is a sorry situation where there is no standout Republican candidate. Romney is hardly better than Obama. Santorum would be better, but he isn't getting the votes. Gingrich is smart, but I can't feel secure that his morals are up to snuff.


Yeah, I see him as the candidate but he's NOT my choice. He's a mini-Obama and, just as 4 years ago, the GOP doesn't have a real good opponent to the obama-agenda
