Re: Trump Bubble. Where’s Santorum? Or Cain?

It REALLY bugs me when pollsters decide not even to include certain candidates in their polls. Hence I am disappointed in the PPP poll cited by John Tabin. There is no good reason to FAIL to include Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, and others who CLEARLY intend to run.

Then again, I guess not being included in a poll is better than not being included in a debate. That's the fate that befell Buddy Roemer the other day. It must be said, however, that Roemer risks making himself a laughing stock if he continues to insist that "The most important issue in this campaign  is: money in politics." Really? With terrorists loose abroad, the Middle East in uproar, China gathering steam, our economy suffering, gasoline prices near record highs, food prices skyrocketing, and Obama appointees running roughshod over the normal bureaucratic bounds, is it even remotely within reason to argue that the most important issue is money in politics?  That's idiotic. And I say that as somebody who sort of likes Gov. Roemer, despite having worked on a campaign that lost to him.

But back to Santorum and Cain: Methinks they both are making inroads. Methinks few polls will exclude them in the future. Nor should they.
