A new LA Times Poll among Washington insiders shows that Romney (20%) has the lead with Giuliani (14%) in second and McCain (10%) in third. Clinton won on the Democratic side.

Among Republicans, Romney had the most backing among party insiders, with 20% support, followed by Giuliani with 14%, McCain with 10% and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia — who has said he might enter the race in the fall — with 8%.

In a potentially worrisome sign for McCain, just over 1 in 10 RNC members said they would not support him if he won the party's nomination in his second attempt.

"It shows just how much resistance there is within the Republican establishment to McCain and how open the party is to candidates who either aren't very conservative, like Giuliani, or only recently minted conservatives, like Romney," Cook said. "McCain has worked pretty hard since 2000 to be a team player, but these numbers would suggest that there is still a problem for him."


The poll was completed by the LA Times and polled members of the DNC and RNC national committees.


"The DNC and RNC members are not just delegates" to the national nominating conventions, said Charlie Cook, a nonpartisan campaign analyst in Washington. "They are key organizers and opinion leaders. They can help build or kill a groundswell, make a candidate's challenge in a state easier or much harder. They matter a lot."

No wonder the Governor is the target of so much mud slinging, lies and vitriol. I do hope he has thick skin and can tune all the noise out while staying the course.

I guess in politics it is better to be the target of opponents than NOT.

I imagine Romney's skin got nice and "thick" taking hits in Boston, don't you? Not to mention an upbringing in liberal Michigan. I'm thinking he can more than handle the pressure at this point, whereas candidates that use the Secret Service to keep reporters away may suffer when they finally have to Q & A out in the open.
