Newt Gingrich Up Big in Latest Gallup Poll … 15% Lead over Romney


In the latest Gallup Poll, Newt Gingrich 37% … Mitt Romney 22% … Ron Paul 8%.

The momentum continues for Newt Gingrich and his run for the GOP Presidential nomination.  Since early November 2011, Gingrich has gained 24% in the polls while Romney has stayed even. It would appear that most of Herman Cain’s support has gone to Newt. Mean while as stated at Hot Air, “Newt continues to crush Romney among tea partiers and seniors.”

Gingrich Does Better Among Conservative Republicans and Tea Party Supporters

Gingrich’s lead is especially large among conservative Republicans and those who describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement, with more than twice the level of support of any other candidate. Romney ties Gingrich among Republicans who are not Tea Party supporters, and the race is close among moderate/liberal Republicans.

Across the board, Newt Gingrich is surging in the polls. Most importantly in Iowa where a new NY Times/CBS poll has Newt ahead of Romney by 14% …  31% to 17%. As it stands now, Gingrich could win Iowa, place second in NH and win South Carolina. All this as Romney looks on one month before the GOP primary/caucus season begins and wonder what hit him and his candidacy.

      Newt has so many skeletons in his closet that the Democrats would have a field-day with it.

      No suitable candidates for the GOP so 4 more years for Obama, you heard it here first.

      Newt is strong where the GOP is strong- with Tea party and seniors. That’s good for a primary- but in a general, Newt is weak with independents and moderates, which means Newt will be nominee but gives Obama a better chance at another 4 years. It’s all about beating Obama, even if my moderate dog was the nominee- look to Congress to implement the change and hope you are looking for.

      Buster…get a clue…Newt’s skeletons were out of the closet TWELVE YEARS AGO. His trangressions went public TWELVE YEARS AGO.

      Nobody cares about that stuff. Your dear Obama snorted Coke and smoked Weed; and hung out with people that bombed the Capitol Building in DC.

      People CAN change. Newt is 50X more intelligent then Obama and that’s a fact.

      Romney is suitable and CAN win the independent vote that got Obama elected in 2008.

      At this point..ABO…

      And now you aren’t the first to make that prediction. Glen Beck made that prediction two weeks ago.

      Obama will NOT win UNLESS the election is rigged.

      #6, actually I predicted Obamas win several months ago, and I am convinced more than ever he will win unless something drastically changes.

      Trust me, I do not want Obama to win, far from it, but the average person on the street is convinced that the current mess of our country is because of the Republican congress blocking Obama.

      The average person on the street does not have a clue regarding the far left ideology that Barack Obama embraces … the far left ideology that goes beyond socialism.

      Why are the Republican Presidential candidates are not warning Americans. They each comprehend perfectly. What is wrong with this picture.


      The Company He Keeps

      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      “Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.”

      “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
