Fred Thompson leads Values Voters poll

This is a bit of a message to the GOP - your roots don't like who you are pushing on us. Give us Fred!

A recent Vision America online presidential preference poll of over 2,500 Values Voters across the United States indicates significant support for a current non-candidate.

37.6% of the 2,678 respondents supported former Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination.

Vision America President Rick Scarborough said the results reflect widespread uncertainty over the current field of GOP candidates: "It’s clear that our members, like Values Voters everywhere, are looking for an authentic conservative and hoping that Fred Thompson will turn out to be that man."

Scarborough continued: "The Republican establishment is now on notice -- Values Voters are not going to flock to socially liberal candidates, regardless of what label they bear. Conservative rhetoric is less important than a conservative record in office."

This is where the party has gone wrong in 05-06. It abandoned its roots, its values - and the values voters. Pretty good point these folks make.
