Romney’s VP pick should be Santorum or Rubio, followed by Bush or Christie, poll says

If the selection of Mitt Romney's running mate were left up to Republican voters, right now the choice would be a tossup between Rick Santorum and Marco Rubio—but not by much.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday night showed that Santorum led the pack in a list of 19 running mates, with 18 percent of Republican voters choosing him just slightly over Rubio, who received the support of 17 percent. Behind them, 13 percent liked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; the same number preferred former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. The margin of error was plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

With several months left before Romney will probably announce his running mate, polls like this are unlikely to influence the decision-making process.

 hope Mittens pick Santorum. The late night comics will have a ball with that duo. One telling women he will fight for their rights and the other swearing to take them away.

Please not Santorum.  If anything happened to Romeny, that nutjob would be president.  No thanks!

Paul from Kentucky would make for a wild choice. Blackwell, from Ohio would help Romney out a bit in those swing mid west states.

Blackwell is not even known in Ohio much; let alone the rest of the country. Blackwell, should win a house seat or such before he should try to get any type of national aspiration.
