PPP OH poll: Romney 37, Santorum 36 and fading fast
PPP ^

Posted on 03/04/2012 6:48:43 PM PST by lilyfreeper

Ohio: Romney 37, Santorum 36, Gingrich 15, Paul 11

Romney and Santorum tied at 36 among Ohio election day voters, but Romney up 41-34 on votes in the bank

This seems like it could be a key stat- Romney up 40-23 with folks who decided in the last few days in Ohio.

Santorum is a disaster. He's going to drag down the Newt and make Romney the nominee. This guy has no shame, I'm telling you.

Romney can thank Gingrich who keeps being the spoiler as he splits the conservative vote and allows Romney to shoot pass through the breach. Unlike Pawlenty, Bachman, Cain, and Perry, Gingrich doesn’t seem to have the grace to quit with honor. Romney knows this, does Gingrich and his followers know this?

Spoken like a Newt plant who showed up on Jan. 1 on the forum.

Romney-the-RINO is robo-calling his ass off in Ohio (I get 6-8 robo-calls a day), and Newtie (the one who can't keep his pants zipped) trails Santorum, 2:1 in Ohio. He has ZERO chance here, and other than the South, has no hope.

I think it's people like you who constantly run him down who are giving Romney the nomination. Santorum was doing fine, surging in all the polls until all the Newt people, GOPe, and media pummeled him before MI.

And then there were none.

Doing fine? Santorum has never been fully vetted like other candidates. He’s an electroal disaster if you look at his history objectively. Losing an election by 18 points as a 2-term senator would normally disqualify anybody from running again. He somehow became a frontrunner ??

Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and now this santorum nutjobs. Conservatives have nobody but themselves to blame by selecting these mad dogs.

You are certainly assuming a lot in your post.

This has little to do with shame and certainly isn't dragging Gingrich down. If anything (at present), applying your logic with poll standings reflects how Gingrich is dragging down Santorum (a theory I also don't accept).

One of two things is occurring. Either the Country is (in fact) now more of a Liberal ideology, or money and organization (along with lots of media support) is influencing a dumbed down electorate. I subscribe to the dumbed down theory.

A Romney nomination is not only a disaster for Conservatives, it's a disaster for the entire Country as there's no way Romney defeats Obama....zip, zero, nada.

If this poll is indicative of a trend, and Romney does become the nominee, I don't know what our next step is. Do we pretend to support a terrible candidate (such as in 2008) all the way to an Obama victory or do we look for a Third Party alternative?

>> Romney can thank Gingrich who keeps being the spoiler

Nonsense. The morally aggrieved cast Newt’s lead aside to embrace Rick’s magic talking points.

As far as it concerns politics, Santorum is an establishment bit player; a humorless Bush reincarnate. Rick is a wonderful person, but he does not have the competence Liberty requires.

Hey, Santorum is in free fall and shock, while Newt has superbly performed, again, over the last several days everywhere he goes; CNN, Stephanopolis, NBC Gregory, CSpan. Handing these guys their head and teaching conservatism.

Lookin’ good, Newt!

I’m happy to see Newt back taking ground on his own terms, no matter what happens. I like his terms.

"Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell and now this santorum nutjobs. Conservatives have nobody but themselves to blame by selecting these mad dogs."

You got that right, santorum is Mr. Rogers without a spine. He was an establishment lap dog in the senate. After Newt took him under his wing, santorum turned on him and stabbed him in the back. Then to add insult to injury, santorum tries to take credit for Newt's accomplishments in the house.

Seriously? Mad dog like Santorum? Never vetted? He was a U.S. Senator for 16 years, did he just slip into that office without being vetted?

I’ll tell you what I told the other Newtonian, you’re only going to succeed in driving off Santorum supporters from Newt with these attacks. Is that your goal?

The only reality here is this:

Neither Newt NOR Santorum are able to beat Romney head to head.

They are BOTH regional candidates and MUST come together and make their ticket now.

Just the tow of them, go into a room, pray and flip a coin. And then come out united.

THAT will end the nonsense AND Romney.

Anything less. Anything other. MEANS Romney will win and then LOSE to Obama.

Why are people still getting away with posting fake headlines? THis is supposed to be a "twitter" link (which never really work), and the headline is an absurd mockery.

Here is the current RCP AVERAGE for Ohio, compared to the PPP poll:

Name       RCP    PPP
Santorum - 34.0   36.0  +2.0
Romney   - 31.3   37.0  +5.7
Gingrich - 15.7   15.0  -0.7
Paul     - 12.0   11.0  -1.0
Other    -  8.0    2.0  -6.0
So, rather than "fading fast", Santorum just polled 2% ABOVE his current RCP average. Who faded? Newt Gingrich, by 0.7, and Paul, by 1. And "other", who are breaking to Santorum and Romney, unfortunately MORE for Romney.

Fading fast? What a stupid title.

BTW, we often compare SAME polls when deciding what is changing.

THe last PPP poll in Ohio was rather old, January 28-29.

In THAT poll, it was Gingrich 26, Romney 25, Santorum 22.

So, since the LAST PPP Poll, GIngrich has DROPPED 11%, Santorum is up 14%, and Romney is up 12%.

FADING FAST? OK, I know you are all hoping very badly that Santorum loses to Romney, although I still can’t figure out why people who don’t want ROmney as our NOMINEE keep getting so excited every time Romney BEATS Santorum, while Gingrich still struggles in low double-digits.

I’d love it if GIngrich could somehow suddenly have good poll numbers, and actually win contests. He’ll certainly take Georgia. Unfortunately, he’ll need more than a few states to win this thing.

But we could have a brokered convention — that is, if the gingrich supporters don’t get their way, and Romney beat Santorum everywhere.

“Losing an election by 18 points as a 2-term senator would normally disqualify anybody from running again.”

And all the blather from the Rickites can't erase that fact. Granted, 2006 was an anti-GOP year, but, 18%? That's a GIANT, LOUD “F**K YOU” to Santorum.

Like I said a week or two back to someone else, if an 18% loss enhances a candidate, then Blanche Lincoln should be running for POTUS for the Rats, she might help them win AR.

Newt does not owe Santorum anything. I do not Owe Santorum my vote he has to earn it.

Newt biggest message is Gas 2.50 what is Santorum. What happens if Santorum loses OH then what.

Santorum has a ton of NON-Binding Delegates. The problem is they Can vote for anybody they feal like. Why does everyone think they are so great.

Yes I do, and I'll tell you why. When Republicans run Conservative Presidential candidates, historically they win. When Republicans run Moderate Presidential candidates, historically they lose.

Romney will never turnout the Conservative base. Both Santorum and Gingrich would.

Remember ABO

Anyone But Obama

Sorry, but no thanks. I'm getting old, and I've lived through a lot of elections, and I think that I know how this story ends. Voting for the establishment choice (such as Romney) because we "have no place left to go" only encourages the establishment to put forward someone even more liberal the next time. It is the gradual accumulation over the years of the "anybody but..." philosophy that has brought us to this point where we may have to choose between two liberals. It is the fault of those who acquiesced to the lesser of the two evils philosophy year after year until the lesser of the two evils was more objectionable than the greater evil of years past.

Yes, Obama would take us to Hell in a handbasket, but so will Romney--just a bit slower and with nicer seats.

Out of all the tired Gingrich attacks that is the most pathetic. Good news for the struggling Santorum campaign. I hear they may turn one of Super Tuesday’s contests into a non binding caucus where more than three dozen people might show up! There’s hope yet!
