Things are evening out again between the 2 front-runners. So what yesterday speculatively looked like a national mini-surge for Romney, is not to be.

Remember, among “registered Republicans”, which excludes that 30% independents who dropped out BECAUSE of RINOS and the GOP Carl Rove elite.

The dirty little secret keeps on getting buried. But hopefully it will be a big surprise next Tuesday. GO NEWT!

I love Sarah Palin but she is beginning to piss me off in not coming out in support of one of the two real conservatives or the lesser Rino Perry.

I don't get it. ..what is she waiting for?

Seems like she is putting her finger to the wind and making sure she endorses the eventual winner for some self-serving purpose.

It pains me to write this but what other reason would she have in not supporting Santorum, Bachmann or Perry?

Maybe. Maybe not. Hard to tell. This is a 5 day rolling average.

Heard that Romney had a one day bounce to 30 in the poll around Christmas time. It could be just now starting to roll off. Then again that could all be meaningless to. However, if Romney gets big MO out of Iowa, this may change quickly. An I may be ill for a while...

But by all means, Iowa conservatives, go blow it all on a vote for Santorium.

To coin a phrase “The fix is in.”

The GOP elites want Romney.
The LibMSM wants Romney.
The polling companies want Romney.
The Dems want Romney.
Obozo wants Romney.

One problem for me, if they all want him, I don’t. And I really was wanting to vote this next year!

I sure hope.

I know that it’s a 5-day rolling average, so for Newt to go +1 & Romney to go -1 in one day, means that yesterday, 12/29, Newt polled better nationally than Romney. It’s not 10 points, but I’ll take what I can get.

One thing for sure, he won't stay down for long since all the others other than Bachmann have surged 20 points in a matter of hours.

Newt is already on everybody’s mind and this spectacle in Iowa is starting to embarrass most logical, thinking Conservatives.

It's high time for the adults to take over again.

A lot of this is “thinking” with my emotions, and reading into the numbers what I want to see. I know polling will go wacky again over the weekend, and then the results will be scrambled again post-Iowa, so it’ll be a while before we can access what’s going on.

I am relieved we don’t see Romney at 28 or 29, though.

The eventual endorsement will be as a part of a surge to demolish the Obama mythology once and for all.

The ignoble regime in the Oval Office now has HUGE liabilities and vulnerabilities, and as yet, the field of candidates has scarcely addressed any of them, except for some vague promises to “repeal Obamacare”. Such a verbal promise is worth about as much as the paper it is written on, at this point.

Sarah Palin is waiting for the same thing that I await - the pledge that the candidate will go after and take the fight TO Obama and his agenda. So far, we have not yet gotten that from Mitt Romney, to be sure, and only a half-hearted promise from most of the rest of the field, since Herman Cain has chosen to suspend his campaign.

And note that Cain only SUSPENDED the campaign, not dropped out entirely. I am still hoping for a brokered convention.

When Bachmann, Perry and Santorum bail does anyone think the majority of those votes will go to Mr. 25% (oops, make that Mr. 26%)? Not a chance. They will split between Newt and Ron Paul. I’m betting 3/4 to Gingrich.

I like Palin too so this is just some WAGs. I remember her saying in an interview that If she ran it would be a very unconventional campaign. I think she may try to run after all of the other candidates destroy each other. She will say she is the true conservative candidate and therefore must run. I also think she may throw her hat in the ring if there is a brokered convention where no candidate can reach the required number of delegates.

I also like Newt but I think it will be difficult for her to endorse him.

If Romney looks like he is going to win, that my cause her to enter the race. I just don’t see how she can endorse Romney. She would really loose popularity among her supporters.

“Sarah Palin is waiting for the same thing that I await - the pledge that the candidate will go after and take the fight TO Obama and his agenda.”

Palin has been wise in withholding her endorsement and support until these clowns stop shooting themselves in the foot. She probably - like me - is pulling for someone other than the big government progressives (Romney and Gingrich).

That’s my hope too, most particularly with Perry & Santorum. I get the feeling that Santorum would formally endorse Gingrich, too. Bachmann & Newt seem to hate each other, so I don’t know where her supporters go, but her numbers are so small now it doesn’t matter much. She turned out to be a strange bird.

Courtesy of another freeper and Inman from his post earlier today.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

We will have control of congress after 2012. Given that, it is better that we have an angry and alert populace insisting on political war with an open enemy in the white house, than a slumbering electorate being betrayed by the Benedict Arnold of 2012.

No Romney, PERIOD ! We told them, We told them, We told them ! Personally I'm writing in George Washington if Romney is the candidate.

And if the purple lipped bastard remains in office, do you honestly think opposition means a damned thing to him? It sure has not so far. The man has already began to shred the Constitution. With four more years, this country is done. Screw any, ANY idea he remains in office..with all do respect to Mr. Hamilton...

I think you argument is credible with regard to domestic policy. But Iran seems near the cusp of being a nuclear power, which is a dangerous time to have Obama at the helm.

If Romney is the candidate, the battle is already over and LOST. He will do MORE damage than Obama, not less.

Besides, he CANNOT win once the likes of Chris Matthews start spilling all the insaley stupic CULT secrets he believes in. Wake up !

I think Palin should come out right now for Newt. He has the best chance to beat Mitt and it would be a huge endorsement to put Newt over the top. He really supported her in 2008 when she was being trashed by the msm.

You have to think Palin has a plan, wish we knew what it is.

You may just be correct in that she's letting the dust settle a bit

If she ran it would be a very unconventional campaign.

Yes, I remember that line well.

Boy, if she does jump back in, it will be fun to watch MSM heads explode.

Yes, MORE damage !

He won't eliminate Obama's Czars, he won't eliminate Obamacare, He won't replace Janet Napolian, he won't clean house in the ATF or FBI or EPA or with judges or anything else ! All that will happen with Romney in charge is most conservatives, tired of the worry will place trust into a man that will BETRAY US ALL !....While obama's henchmen continue at their posts !

Bush left the overwhwelming majority of Clinton's men in place when he took office.....ROMNEY WILL BE WAY WORSE !

The Liberal News-Media (now joined by their The Usual E-RINO Suspects) will suffer an "epic fail" ...

as they DESPERATELY try to force a "faux disqualification" for Newt Gingrich in the upcoming Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary.



I'm confident that Newt Gingrich will "decimate" Mitt Romney and Dr. Winkie (Ron Paul) in South Carolina and Florida ...


======================================


How many successful POTUS candidates have ever won the Iowa Caucus ?

In the last thirty-two (32) years ... only ONE Democrat (Obama in 2008) and ONE Republican (Bush-43 in 2000) have won BOTH the Iowa Caucus and the Presidential Election ...

Of course, that doesn't include "sitting" Presidents (Reagan, Clinton) who won Iowas on their way to a second term election ...

That presents odds of TWO (2) Iowa Caucus wins out of SIXTEEN (16) possible Presidential Election Candidates !

Equivalent to a Whopping twelve-point-five (12.5) percent success rate ...




How many successful POTUS candidates have ever won the New Hampshire Primary ?

In the last thirty-two (32) years ... only ONE Democrat (Carter in 1976) and TWO Republicans (Reagan-1980 and Bush-41 in 1988) have won BOTH the New Hampshire Primary and the Presidential Election ...

Of course, that doesn't include "sitting" Presidents (Reagan, Clinton) who won New Hampshire on their way to a second term election ...

That presents odds of THREE (3) New Hampshire wins out of FIFTEEN (15) possible Presidential Election Candidates !

Equivalent to a Whopping thirteen-three-three (13.33) percent success rate ...

So, this is where I am at the end of 2011.

I don’t have a candidate in particular since mine got destroyed by whatever.

Gonna vote for whomever gets the nomination, be it Willard, or Newt, or Perry, or Santorum or Bachmann, although I don’t see how she gets it TBH, or even Paul -GOD FORBID-.

I’m not going to be divided and conquered. An R will be selected to go against Ohomo and Queen Ass, and that R will get my vote. Hopefully, we can deal with the stinking GOP after Ohomo is defeated.

Priorities!

Voting for a Mormon for President would validate that cult. Not gonna happen for a lot of us.
And you don’t think there will be hell to pay if Romney is the nominee? Peepstones, spirit wives, becoming god, golden tablets, Indians are Jews who came here in 600 BC, magic underwear, secret handshakes. And a whole lot more gonna be dragged into the open.
It isn’t like the GOP elite hasn’t been warned about the Mormon problem, but they keep on pushing this loser.
And then you have Romneycare, which just seals the deal.
