It's Scott Rasmussen from the rest of -- are reporting live from New Jersey Scott.
Republican presidential candidate Herman -- making some start getting some -- after this -- straw poll.
It's He has a real -- now.
Well He has the chance to become a real deal straw polls are always over analyzed and right now the most important factor in the race for the Republican nomination.
Is -- only one out of four voters have made up their mind the rest are kinda look at all the candidates trying to decide.
Herman Kane -- a chance we heard a little bit more the next debate.
But he's still a long shot in fact all of the candidates you know have less than 5050 chance of winning at this time have you done any polling since the Florida straw poll to see where He stands now months is rivals.
We are going to be doing that very soon we're actually doing some polling right now on a match up between Herman -- And President Obama we'll have that information tomorrow.
You know I think what we're seeing overall is a situation where there's an establishment semifinals.
Mitt Romney his one that he'd -- Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman.
Then we have the outsider semifinals.
And we don't know who that candidate is gonna be Rick Perry clearly not gonna sweep the race the way He thought He might when He first came -- as a front runner.
Lot of turmoil on that side at the moment.
Well let's to add another loved and -- -- -- if you will -- -- the reports are really hot and heavy that He is leaning significantly.
To jumping into the -- how that's changed the dynamics.
You know Chris Christie gets in it shakes everything up but the surprise factor is still there.
A month ago we were talking about how Rick Perry could come in and shake things up He came in at the top of the polls.
And -- He had three bad debate performances and people Begin to say I don't know what this guy his own team told the New York Times that's harder than we thought well.
If Chris Christie jumps in.
Maybe He performed like Ronald Reagan.
Maybe He performs like Fred Thompson four years ago running for president is something you can't estimate in advance you have to see how they perform -- did a number around us the percentage Republicans who are undecided right now.
Is that -- red flag for the GOP and general.
First I didn't say undecided I'm saying they've made up their mind at they have preference as you know they don't get -- our last -- 28% preferred Perry 24% Romney.
He went on down from there but they're not sold on that -- now what it's a sign of its its very early in the process John McCain.
The 2008 Republican nominee never led in a national poll -- -- the end of December in 2007.
That -- every bit of of information we have shows that while the political types in the junkies are moving the election process forward.
Most Americans are still thinking the election is held in 2012.
Not 2011 but there's there's something to be said about the enthusiasm factor kicking in sooner rather than later.
Up certainly if you're if you're candidate right after hurricane right now you have a moment to capture some enthusiasm in the build on it you want to do that you wanna have that momentum but we'll help you.
Get the nomination in terms of red flag of the general election.
I don't look at I don't think there's any reason for concern about enthusiasm among Republican voters.
And the reason for that is Barack Obama will provide all the enthusiasm for Republicans.
Just like George Bush provided the enthusiasm for Democrats for years ago all right Scott Rasmussen you are the best that's why we have you on and I can't wait for the next all right I want to see how much room how much.
-- is game because I got to tell you that was a stunning victory for him thanks a lot.
