Rasmussen Reports Poll: Richardson Beats Romney

In a theoretical head to head matchup, in the 2008 general election, with Bill Richardson as the Democratic nominee and Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee, according to Rasmussen Reports Bill Richardson wins 42-34.
Democrat Bill Richardson could defeat a prospective Republican presidential nominee in the United States, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. 42 per cent of respondents would support the New Mexico governor in 2008, while 34 per cent would vote for former Massachusetts senator Mitt Romney.

Methodology: Telephone interviews with 800 likely American voters, conducted on Apr. 11 and Apr. 12, 2007. Margin of error is 4 per cent.
Romney, as you may recall, had a great Q1 fundraising and raised boatloads of cash for his campaign. The problem is that unless you live in Salt Lake City or Massachusetts, or are a political junkie, you likely have no idea who Mitt Romney is. He'll have to spend all of that cash just to raise his name ID.

What this shows is that likely voters value experience over tons of money. Bill Richardson has decades of concrete experience on the issues that matter most to Americans. Mitt Romney has 4 years of being governor in a state where his party is marginalized and the state house is firmly in control of Democrats. How effective could Romney actually be?

This poll is also a warning to Barack Obama and John Edwards. They too are inexperienced, and Americans are fed up with amateurs in the White House after 8 years of the Bush Administration. It's time to put the adults back in charge of the White House. Bill Richardson for President.
