If those are actual percentages, Mitt Romney is golden, as he's the only candidate to meet all of those credentials.

Mitch Daniels and Tim Pawlenty could be "golden", too

Uh, here's what Clarus isn't telling you.

Clarus was pretty much the only pollster to show Romney with a big lead over the summer.  In fact, he led Palin by 14 in Clarus' last poll.  In fact, Clarus blasted this headline:

http://clarusrg.com/sites/default/files/August%2012.pdf

So, Romney has fallen 7 points from July and 11 points from last year.  Palin and Huckabee have remained steady from last year while Palin is up 5 from July.

So in reality, Clarus was already much more positive towards Romney than any other pollster.  The fact that he can only now show Romney in a cluster means that Romney is well....dead weight.

Including Christie and Rubio moves 14% of the vote that has a 100% chance of going  to other candidates

Can pollsters please stop including Christie and Rubio in their polls ?

Rubio would just be a 4-month US-Senator until he has to declare his candidacy for President and Christie already said something like he'd rather commit suicide than run for President.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I have ever agreed with you.  Congrats.
