Patch’s Poll: Who Has Had the Best Speech from the Republican National Convention So Far?

Some key politicians and influential speakers, from Paul Ryan to Ann Romney to Chris Christie, have spoken at the 2012 RNC in the lead-up to Mitt Romney’s speech tonight.

Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled to close the Republican National Convention on Thursday with the final speech of the three-day event.

The speech is being billed as the “defining moment” of the convention, as reported by CNBC, when Romney will have to convince the country that he has what it takes to defeat President Barack Obama in November.

But there have been several other high-profile speeches since the convention’s start on Tuesday. Observers and media personalities spoke highly of vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Ann Romney, the presidential candidate's wife, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, among other people.

The New York Times has conveniently listed some of the top speeches on its website.

So, we ask, who has had the best speech from the Republican National Convention so far? Take our poll and share your thoughts in the comments.

Here is a short video that explains Mormonism. http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_938881&feature=iv&src_vid=7q6brMrFw0E&v=n3BqLZ8UoZk. Joseph Smith the founder of the Mormon faith was a false prophet; in fact in the 1800’s he was known as a conman and was a convicted of such crimes by the state of New York. How anyone could prescribe to such nonsense is mindboggling.

I'm not an adherent to Mormonism but I confident in my own faith that I can say they have a Right, to believe, worship and belong to any religion that they want to. I'm a Baptist, Evangelical Christian, and some of my very best friends are; Roman Catholic (Actually many family members) Mormon, Jehovia's Witness, Hindu and many other belief systems. I make freinds with the person and I don't hand out a "Faith Test." John, you are not winning any converts by giving us links to why Mormonism is a cult. My Grandmother came from Ireland and had to listen her whole life about how Catholics were evil, papists, could never be true American's with duel allegiance to both Rome and To the USA. You ares not really showing the love of Jesus by spreading hate and bigotry. I'm voting for Mitt Romney because he seems to be very experienced in fixing dire situations. He has a great business sense, and a great moral sense. On top of that he has a genuine love of people. I'm not voting for Obama, not because he don't share any of these qualities but because he has had 3 years and has fallen short of expectations in those 3 years. (Three years of some very hard personal struggles) I do not remember a malaise in this country since the late 70's when Jimmy Carter was president. I want something better for the USA and I believe we deserve something better. We should not emulate the world, no the world should emulate us.
