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.

Open Question. What is the #1 reason your so down on Newt?
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.
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?
Only 2:1? I think it is like 6:1 here next door in Pennsylvania.
Not being able to control your schlong dose have consequences for a Republican doesn't it?
>> until all the Newt people
Amazing “all the Santorum people” neglect to recall how they “spoiled” Newt’s lead.
Do you seriously believe Santorum can beat Obama??
Senator Sharron Angle, Christine ODonnell, where are you?
Santorum is crazier than Angle and O’Donnell.
How do you drag down the guy who can’t get 20% in the polls, and who rarely finishes above 4th place?
I hope Willard sends Newt a basket of goodies.
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.
Holy atomic pile, Batman!
It is pointless to try to talk sense to ‘some’ of you Saintorum worshipers... you have gone way beyond goofy.
** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
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 -6.0So, 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.
Hang in there, noob.
New data ping.
Rombots have invaded this site and about hundred others or so disguised as Newtons.
Using Romney backers money to finance his delusional fantasy of becoming POTUS.
Exactly. We get Romney? You can thank Newt.
That is truly a ridiculous post. Good grief.
Santorum isn’t dragging down Newt. Geesh.
