Presidential Poll: Romney Picks Up Endorsement; Who Has Your Vote?

Bolingbrook Patch will begin polling its readers on a weekly basis to gauge their interest in the election, its candidates and what issues are most important to them.

The 2012 election is still many months away. But some of the most deciding moments are now in the next few weeks.

With Iowa's GOP caucus—the earliest one in the nation—set for Jan. 3, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney picked up a key endorsement last week from the Des Moines Register.

From the endorsement (via Huffington Post): 

Sobriety, wisdom and judgment.

Those are qualities Mitt Romney said he looks for in a leader. Those are qualities Romney himself has demonstrated in his career in business, public service and government. Those qualities help the former Massachusetts governor stand out as the most qualified Republican candidate competing in the Iowa caucuses.

Bolingbrook Patch is polling its readers to gauge their interest in the election, its candidates and what issues are most important to them. This poll will be published each week until the end of the election season.

And at the end of the Illinois primary (March 20) and general election (Nov. 8), we hope these numbers will provide insight into how attitudes and ideologies shifted throughout what seems sure to be a cutthroat political atmosphere.

Federal government is far too big and intrusive. It has long since passed the Constitutional boundaries set by "we the people." This has resulted in taxes far too high, which means less money - less freedom - for we the people. It means a weaker economy - federal government employment is for the most part not a productive part of our economy - which means fewer jobs and lower pay available for we the people. The campaign battle cry a decade ago was "It's the economy, stupid." Today, it is "It's the politicians, stupid."
