Gallup numbers staying steady, with Newt in the lead!

Also today, Polls showing Newt leading in Virginia by Quinnipiac, and Iowa still anyone's game between Mitt/Newt/Paul.

Newt lead is steady and constant, or as the media and GOP Establishment report it: "Tanking."

The more they attack Newt and downplay his ability the more it makes me want him to win.

Personally I think the Republican’s want to lose the Presidency because there are too many that want to run in 2016...so they are putting up Romney a guaranteed loser. I have a friend that said he’d never vote for a Mormon even though Romney is pretty much his type of liberal Republican. But he would vote for Newt over Obama even though he doesn’t like Newt.

The thing that is driving him down in Iowa are the relentless negative tv commercials.

Of the three, Newt is the clear choice. Mitt is just not going to cut it. RonPaul is so wacky on foreign affairs, it is amazing he is sitting in the top three in Iowa. I like much of what he says, but the rest is a disqualifier. Plus, he’s a 75 year old shrunken up little man. Put his son in there and we can look at it differently.

Paul’s “colorful” past is starting to come out now that he is is the top tier, and I have learned quite a few things about him in the past couple days I didn’t know. I don’t see how he can compete with that kind of lunatic background. He’s running negative ads against Newt. Once someone starts with negative ads against him he will disappear. C’mon Michele, do something for your country.

Jesus' poll numbers were through the roof on Palm Sunday. A week later, not so much.

At this time four years ago, Rudy Giuliani was leading in the polls. We all know how that turned out.

Don’t trust the polls. Lots of Iowans don’t have their minds made up. Turnout will be another factor.

-—”Lots of Iowans don’t have their minds made up.”-—

That’s a very bad thing, because it means every lower-tier candidate is going to perform better than they were polling, and will thus claim momentum and carry on - working right into Romney’s hands.

What Michelle can do for her country is go away and stay away.

I can’t recall ever losing so much respect for a person in such a short time. Look at the YouTube vido of her lavishing Newt with prais 3 years ago and watch her acting as Myth’s lapdog now.

She sickens me.

Why are you obsessed with lying about the Gallup polls, which showed Newt destroying the field just two weeks ago, and now collapsed back into a statistical ties?

I like Newt. He’s got his flaws, but having lived in Massachusetts in the 1990s, I can never trust Romney. And Paul is a freaking lunatic. Meanwhile, Newt was the intellectual foundation of the Republican Revolution, destroyed by Armey, Delay, Hastert, Dole and Bush. That people call him a RINO drives me to pull my hair out.

But, for bad or good, he is in a terrible freefall, and lying about that helps no-one.

I know I didn’t go to Harvard like Obama or Romney, but my math tells me that the field only adds up 81. So 19% don’t want any of them. Which is good for 3rd place. That to me is the big news from this. There’s still room for someone else to get in, and there’s still enough dissatisfaction that anything could happen.

Also, I haven’t even announced my candidacy yet and I’m only 2 pts behind Huntsman. Not bad.

Maybe that should be Newt’s new strategy. He can run an ad showing all the etsbalishment backing Romney and then at the end he’ll say “Forgive them father, for they know not what they do. I’m Newt Gingrich, and I approved this message”

If what you have “learned” has to do with the old newletter issue, what you have learned isn’t quite true. Fascinating how FR posters can be so gullible. Mittens and the R Establishment love this.

I hope Newt made it onto the ballot in Virginia. Got some calls to sign a petition for him this week, but I was so busy trying to get shopping done. There was also a rally I would have liked to have attended.

and Iowa still anyone's game between Mitt/Newt/Paul.
in actuality; IA has been rendered "somewhat moot"....
(whatever relevance to the pollsters / Washington DC Chattering Class)
most of the Farmers; seem to have "become" addicted to Corn (Ethanol)
Subsidies and w/ the Taxes / EPA / OSHA et al alphabet agencies breathing
down their necks, they have (unwittingly) become part of the Liberal Plantation
Mentality; therefore, I would register a "protest" (RuPaul) vote, too."

Speaking of New Hampshire, I read this Dec 21st quote below from a Gallup article.....

"Romney's lead is not surprising. He has been ahead in various polls of New Hampshire Republicans all year long, a position most often ascribed to the visibility he gained as governor of neighboring state Massachusetts."

What's interesting is it's from 2008! McCain as we know went on to win New Hampshire. Newt is a different candidate but he could still win there.

You’re talking about the newletters that Ron Paul put out, correct?

Ron Paul should have read one from every newsletter issue bearing his name before mailing them out, and if not he should never be in an executive position.

This is the equivalent of Barak Obama sitting in Wright’s church for twenty years, then claiming he was unaware of the racist rants.

I think you get my point.

AMEN. She has had considerable air time in between debates and as I type this she's on O'Reilly trying to convince us (or herself?) that she is the only one who can beat Obama and will win Iowa because of the strong evangelical backing she's receiving. She said she "is looking forward to being America's next Margaret Thatcher" in the WH. Poor woman suffers from delusions of grandeur and should immediately go home and treat her ailment.

The news media and the demonicrats have not attacked Romney. Does that make you think, “what the hell is going on?” The answer is very simple. Obama is in deep trouble for reelection. However, Romney is our weakest candidate and if he did win, he is a RINO.

Obama and the media are behind Romney.

” Personally I think the Republican’s want to lose the Presidency because there are too many that want to run in 2016...so they are putting up Romney a guaranteed loser. “

I agree with you and so do many, many others. There is no way that the power Republicans are in this to win it and they believe they can control the outcome. They have the inside money, the inside favors, the inside deals and the name to craft outcomes exactly to their liking even state by state. The web of connections has become obvious. Frankly, the McCains, McConnells, don’t even look slightly concerned, and no sign of sweat yet that we voters are much of a threat to their endgames.

Newt, 2012. What a ride he could give these players. We need to go to work.

If you look at that graph, the only one “staying steady” is Romney. Newt’s trajectory is downward and Ron Paul’s is upward — as is Perry’s slightly upward trend. It remains to be seen as to where those trajectories go

No, it isn’t equivalent to sitting in Wright’s church. Every politician of significant stature has “autograph” machines. They are used by every President, for example (but not just Presidents), for signing endorsement letters and other mailings that they NEVER see. I managed a campaign for an R candidate at the state level years ago and obtained a “genuine” RR signature on a fund raising letter. RR never saw the letter, nor did any senior staff. It was all handled by a low-level N-Cal regional operative.

The same is true for direct mail campaigns that politicians have others do on their behalf.

People who have been forced to admit (not you) that RP didn’t write the newsletters or review them are now falling back on the naive (or, in some cases, dishonest) claim that RP is unqualified because he didn’t review all of the mailings. By that standard all of the “heros” of the conservative movement are or were “unqualified”, including RR.

The newsletter claim is old and was dealt with years ago, but apparently the R-Establishment feels it can still get mileage out of it. The brain-dead RP opposition here is inadverently aiding Romney, which is the point of the smear. The Beltway Rs know that Romney will start looking like toast if the Iowa finish is Newt, RP, Romney, and it would put NH in question for Romney.

RP isn’t going to get the nomination (and he won’t run 3rd party - another Beltway meme), but he may play a major role in derailing Mittens - if conservatives can get over an acute case of “gullibilityitis”.

I will not play the “GWBush let’s not defend ourselves” game again. Even Cheney is now on record saying that was their worst mistake.

Send a letter to Newt. I’m backing him because he will take it to Obama. To get there he is going to have to take it to Obama’s mini-me, Mitt Romney.
