Republican Primary Tuesday [Poll]

New York has 95 delegates for the taking in Tuesday's Republican Presidential Primary. How will Plainview vote?

While the race is all but over, the Republican presidential field casts its eyes to New York with Tuesday's primary and 95 delegates on the line. 

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the clear frontrunner, but Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich remain in the race. This is a closed primary, so only registered Republicans can vote. You can look up where to vote on the Board of Elections website.

It's also primary day in Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, meaning 222 delegates are at stake. Romney leads the field with 685 delegates, more than halfway to the 1,144 needed to wrap up the presidential nomination, according to The New York Times.  

The latest Quinnipiac poll has Romney leading in New York with 54 percent of those polled. Rick Santorum, who suspended his campaign April 10, was a distant second in the poll with 21 percent.

Yes, Santorum is still on the ballot, according to the state Board of Elections. 

All of which begs the question: Who will Plainview vote for Tuesday? And with Romney holding a nearly insurmountable edge, what issue resonates enough to bring you to the polls? Tell us in comments.

The problem with our current political system is they want us to participate as if we were at a ballgame, taking sides and not holding them to their responsibility. And dumb as we are, we do. We put on our Dem or Rep jersey and yell and curse at each other instead to pointing that finger back at them and ask for them to do their job representing US not the lobbyist. The cycle will continue for as long as we keep playing the game.

The problem with HAMP, according to the GAO, has been that banks and other mortgage servicers have been ignoring the rules and foreclosing on those who would qualify. Only in Florida where the state supreme court ordered mortgage providers to follow the rules has Fannie Mae been able to force mortgage servicers to follow the rules in HAMP.

No, our corporations are not America. Our corporations are WORLD corporations and the profits they make by moving jobs to China or India help them but not our country. Apple, for example, does almost all their work in Taiwan and China. How does that help the US? And lowering taxes does not help the country. In the 1950's when the middle class was strong and growing the top tax rate in this country was 93% on income (adjusted for inflation) of $2.5 million. But he has lowered your taxes although the Republicans want to increase your taxes by, for example, doubling the interest rate on student loans. How does that help you?

There is no yelling and cursing. Everyone has the right to an opinion. I may not agree with you but you are right about not holding them responsible . Both parties.They can both share the blame for the mess we are in.My point is that given the choice I think Obama will be the lesser of the two evils .We(voters) still need to go after both parties cally and become more politically active if anything is to change. voting is not enough. people need to continuosly contact their elected officials and complain throughout the year

John I agree, we are far behind other countries when it comes to political awareness. Heck I bet if we did a poll of voting adults they would not even know who is their local representative. But it is terrible that we have to think of this upcoming election a pick between lesser of two evils. It proves that Leadership is not as abundant as it should.
