Gingrich Leads in PPP Poll, Followed by Cain
The Corner ^ | 11/14/2011 | Katrina Trinko

Posted on 11/14/2011 10:00:39 AM PST by TBBT

Results from new poll of GOP primary voters from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling: Newt Gingrich (28 percent), Herman Cain (25 percent), Mitt Romney (18 percent), Rick Perry (6 percent), Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul (5 percent), Jon Huntsman (3 percent), Rick Santorum and Gary Johnson (1 percent).

One particularly interesting note from PPP: “There’s reason to think that if Cain continues to fade, Gingrich will continue to gain. Among Cain’s supporters 73 percent have a favorable opinion of Gingrich to only 21 percent with a negative one.”

For his slapdown of Pelley along, Gingrich deserves at least one week at the top of the polls.

A newt reply, let's see we have about twenty different ways that we can address this posting issue, first we need to reword and rephrase the statement, excuse me while I go chase the hired help. The following Newt re addresses the post saying we have twenty five different ways we can address and rephrase this issue and it relationship to world events and out lying effects. Day three, Newt says we have thirty different ways we can review and move beyond this problem. The long of it is newt is really big on the lip service and ideals, but damn short of action. Except for hugging nancy, and the dream act.

Newt will start getting front-runner scrutiny....and that will be good. Newt is my first choice out of this bunch, but we need to see if he and his campaign can handle intense scrutiny and a re-litigation of his personal and political life. If he can emerge from that gauntlet, then he could be a formidable opponent for Obama.

Polls are rediculous at this point. This poll pretty much contradicts the CNN poll, so they can’t both be right. And there are other competing polls.

So the only real question is, now that there are two polls showing Cain dropping, will the Cain supporters at least stop using these rediculous polls to argue that other candidates should drop out and support the “front-runner”? Because if that is the criteria, I guess Cain should drop out and throw his support to Gingrich.....

I suspect by mid-December both Gingrich (zippers) and Cain (loss of females) will be out of the running. Romney will be back on top with Perry not far behind.

This ol’ boy likes them all but Huntsman and Paul, and will make up his mind before walking in the voting booth.

If he really were ahead we’d be seeing him do better in state polls. None of them, save MS show Gingrich ahead of Cain. Even if we flip all the states that went to Bush to Gingrich, there’s just not enough ECs out there.

Prior, we were seeing Cain finish second behind Perry in Perry states, and second behind Romney in Romney states. We don’t see this with Gingrich.

Cain’s my guy, but if Newt wins, that’s OK by me.

As long as RuPaul, Myth Romney, Ricardo Perry, and Jon Huntsman (who ever that is) don’t win, I’m happy.

State polls seem to be a lagging indicator. Perry still looked good in state polls for a few weeks after the national polls showed him crashing.

We shall see. The only state he’s led is the state that he had before, with Cain at 0 and him at 25. He now leads by two in MS. I guess all the Perry voters are still refusing to back Cain, which is disappointing to see.

“If he really were ahead we’d be seeing him do better in state polls”

The bad news is that PPP was the first outfit to pick up on the Cain surge a few weeks ago.

The good news is that Newt has even less money and organization than Cain. His rise may be short lived.

Cain declining in the polls was easily predictable and in fact I predicted it :). Cain benefited from the baseless attack on him by the MSM, many conservative like me rallied to his defense. Now that those attacks are largely over Cain support will fall at least a little as folks migrate back to their favorite candidate. Nothing more then that going on here.

“if Newt wins, that’s OK by me”

If Newt wins, Obama wins.

He is much worse than McCain. Newt was an adviser to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac just before the housing meltdown.

He was also in favor of the obamacare mandate and paired up with Pelosi to urge for “urgent action” to stop global warming. If he is the nominee I’ll pass.

"I’m not convinced that it’s not in the establishment’s best interest to push Gingrich.

Romney seems to be consistently topping out at 25%ish, in a three way race between Romney, Newt and Cain 25% is not going to win. So the numbers do not support the assertion (pushing Newt).

I have been reading various versions of the "Newt is running interference for Romney" more then I like. Never is one ounce of proof provided. It would be great if you could provide some documentation to support the claim. Thx.

Any poll where they use actual GOP voters you get Cain or Gingrich at the top and Romney at the back. When they include massive amounts of independents you get Romney catching up. So any poll you see Romney in the lead you know has way more independents than GOP voters.

Make no mistake: Newt has A LOT to answer for, and he’s not my first choice, as I stated, Herman Cain is.

However, he’s worlds ahead of Myth Romney, RuPaul, Ricardo Perry, and who ever that Huntsman lame-oid is. We could certainly do worse than a former Speaker who somewhat tamed Bill Caligula’s leftist impulses.
