During the hour-long rally, the former speaker of the House spoke of several of his proposals, including creating a personal Social Security savings account system, establishing policies that would encourage energy independence, and creating a job-training requirement for those that receive unemployment. "If you sign up for money, you have to be trained by a business," he said.

The Republican presidential primary election is Tuesday, and a poll out today has Mitt Romney ahead of Rick Santorum by five points.

Not surprisingly, voters who participated in the survey named jobs and the economy their number one concern. Healthcare and the budget, including the deficit, taxes and spending, round out the top three. While Santorum led Romney by double digits late last month, March …

A new poll keeps Mitt Romney tops in the minds of Wisconsin voters when it comes to the Republican presidential nomination. In a new survey released Tuesday from Marquette University, former Gov.

Over the past year, Wisconsin voters have gone to the polls to declare a winner in significant, and historic, state elections. As the Republican presidential primary approaches, state voters will once again play a decisive role — this time on a national stage. After three months since the Iowa caucuses, the GOP primary has essentially narrowed to a two-candidate race between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

Santorum received a bit of a momentum boost on Saturday, with a resounding win in the Louisania primaries, where he took 49 percent of the vote to …
