Who Should Get Our GOP Presidential Nod?

Forget about who WILL win, which GOP presidential hopeful SHOULD win the Pennsylvania primary?

The GOP presidential primary race seems to have been going on forever, but it's finally nearing its conclusion. Pennsylvania voters finally get their say on April 24.

There's no shortage of polls out there. Gallup has plenty of information, including projecting head-to-head races with President Obama, and USA Today, which has a cool graphic that lets you see the nationwide picture as well as individual states.

But that's all about who might win. We think the bigger question is, who should win. So cast a ballot in our poll and, more importantly, leave a comment to tell us who Pennsylvanians should support in the GOP primary.

We'll close our poll April 23 at midnight.

Oh, and if you need information about the election, check out Pennsylvania's Department of State Web site.

It's too bad that Santorum bowed out. Not that he was a better choice than all the others, but it would have been good to have the PA primary mean something. Has our primary ever meant ANYTHING in the presidential landscape? Not that I remember. Santorum may have pulled out our primary and gotten some momentum. Instead we are left with Romney, which means we are left with Obama. I hope Santorum got something good in th bargain. If Christie is tapped as VP, Romney might have a chance. He needs a name that garners respect, not soemone who makes you yawn and ask "Who's That?"

Completely agree with the VP comment for Romney, but I think It'd be more in his favor to select Marco Rubio. He's in a swing state with a large Latino population that is going to vote for Obama, and Florida is one of the states that will make or break the election this year. GOP finally selected the right candidate, but also the candidate who has the fewest amount of debate skills. I'll vote Obama, but I'm beyond excited to see what happens in November

Hey Mike - the real estate and financial crisis was NOT caused efforts from Democrats to allow greater access to mortgage financing -- it was due to fraud by the financial industry which was made much easier via deregulation. You need facts to make a valid point, not excuses that allow you to avoid responsibility for those you helped elect.

Nick: You can stick to the Democrat's view of how it happened, but Frank himself has admitted his own "mistake" which he tried to correct in 2007. I stand by my comment that the Liberal effort to reduce standards for mortgages - hence the term sub-prime - led to the feeding frenzy that did inlcude unscrupulous lending practices. http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2011/12/hey-barney-frank-the-government-did-cause-the-housing-crisis/249903/ From the article: "For most of his career, Barney Frank was the principal advocate in Congress for using the government's authority to force lower underwriting standards in the business of housing finance." Frank was one of the chickens that laid the egg.
