In less than two weeks, Georgia voters will go to the polls (along with voters in other states) for Super Tuesday.  Rome TEA Party member Mike Morton said in an interview on WLAQ AM 1410’s Good Morning Rome on Tuesday that he expects a dead heat in the race for the Republican nomination for president when Super Tuesday arrives.

Morton contends that one of the things we’ve learned from the current campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is that advertising works, from paid advertising to presidential debates.

The Rome TEA Party Lunch Bunch gathered yesterday afternoon at Fuddrucker’s and conducted a pair of straw polls.  Morton reports that the straw poll for the presidential preference primary (the group’s eighth such poll) had Rick Santorum in the lead with 34 percent.  Ron Paul took second place with 32 percent.  Georgia’s Newt Gingrich took 22 percent, with Mitt Romney coming in last with 9 percent.  There was also a straw poll on the  2012 SPLOST, which will also be on the ballot for Floyd County voters on Super Tuesday.  Some 91 percent voted against it, with 6 percent voting yes and 3 percent undecided.
