Surging Gingrich claims top spot in new GOP poll
Washington Times ^ | 11/22/2011 | Seth McLaughlin

Posted on 11/22/2011 9:33:46 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

A national poll released Tuesday shows surging former House Speaker Newt Gingrich now at the front of the pack, with Mitt Romney running second. Mr. Gingrich received 26 percent, while Mr. Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, received 22 percent, according to the new Quinnipiac University poll of more than 2,500 registered voters. The survey also found that businessman Herman Cain’s support has fallen off significantly since earlier this month, dropping from 30 percent to 14 percent. Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Texas Gov. Rick Perry were tied in a distant fourth place with 6 percent. “When it comes to the Republican horse race, the scenario hasn’t changed much over the past few months — just the players,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Speaker Newt Gingrich is the latest GOP contender to rise to the top, powered by conservatives who remain skeptical about Gov. Mitt Romney.”

It’s almost worth it to nominate Newt warts and all just to see the debates w/Obama.

When Newt releases his plan and milestone chart detailing the dismantling of the GSE’s, I'll take an interest in Newt.

And Rush reminds everyone in his audience that the game is not over, says Bachmann, Cain and santorium, all would be good conservative presidents.

If Gingrich is the nominee, I think Obama will “call in sick” the night before each of the 3 debates.

We could get a revolving door of candidates just to keep the whack left confused. I think its a great idea to showcase each one because all of them are only going to get stronger against Obango.

I’ve never been a big fan of Mr. Newt but I’d vote for his dog against what we have now.

Good for you....good stand. Not many reasons given, but that isn't necessary.

Question: can you take THIS stand???

Come next November, with head held high, back ramrod straight, heart calm within your breast, tread firm and resolute, can you enter your polling place, and with the courage of your convictions, vote AGAINST the stain??

If you can take that stand, you - and others like you - just might save this nation.

I think Michele needs to be more self deprecating and show a sense of humor about herself. She comes off as arrogant to most people. I've preferred her all along because she always comes out of the box saying what she intends to cut. Many people on here just despise her though, and I suspect they'll get what they want; no Bachman, but the irony will be they won't get their choice either.

If we get Newt the debate between him and King Obama will be a King Obama’s demise.

If Newt is the nominee, there will be no debates. The One will find any reason, or none at all, to not debate Newt. It would be too devastating and he knows it. The embarrassment of ducking the debates would be the lesser evil.

Well, the next best thing is already planned.

Newt has said that if Obama refuses to debate, he will follow him to his events and be on scene within 4 hours of those events.

Newt is going to hound Obama.

I've always like listening to Newt, even if I wasn't 100% in agreement. Love to have him kick the One’s butt in a debate and election.

Still worried about his energy to campaign at the level required, but frankly, he is the best right now and may be the guy. Romney is just too..... boring. Feel like its a bad movie.

I know what you mean, Dan, but it is what it is.

Newt is in this to win it. His motivation is high and I think he will go the distance.

I like some of our other candidates, but I don’t love ANY of them.

What matters to me is getting that POS out of our White House, not allowing Romney to win and getting somebody to lead this country out of this socialist mess. I believe Newt will do that.

I like you name. LOL

Cheers.....

Dan
