Nationally, it is still a two man race!
20% still undecided?
South Carolina is the lynchpin. Again.
4% -> 5% -> 6% -> likely headed to double digits in the next week
If Romney gets the GOP nomination and I state ‘I will not vote for the man’, will I be blamed if Obama is reelected??
I like how it’s looking for Newt. Fight Newt! You can take Romney!
Polls mean nothing.. it’s whatever the poller wants to report for the most part.
I’ll see what happens in November.
Let's look at Newt's standing in the tracking poll a week ago, and a week before that, and so on:
35% - 12/05-09/2011
28% - 12/12-17/2011
26% - 12/19-23/2011
23% - 12/26/2011-1/02/2012
Notice a trend?
I have to wait until the MAJOR Hollywood movie stars express their valuable opinions.
“If Romney gets the GOP nomination and I state I will not vote for the man, will I be blamed if Obama is reelected”
Not if you live in New York or California or a deep blue state because it makes no difference whether you vote for Romney or do not vote at all as the ultimate result will be all their electoral votes will be going to Obama anyway. If you live in a swing state that is another story.
"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."

“Notice a trend? “
24/7 lies and distortions against him?
They won’t be able to do that in a 50 state race...not even with a billion dollars. There’s no defending against it in Iowa.
No - if Romney gets the nomination, he will lose to Obama no matter how you or I vote and the fault will lie squarely at the feet of the Republican establishment, who insist on shoving “their guy” down our throats, even though there is no way he’ll win the general election.
It’s Gerald Ford in ‘76, Bob Dole in ‘96, John McCain in 2008....”but he’s the most electable one!” Yeah, that’s worked well for us!

I may very well wear gloves and vote for Scott Brown again. But Milt? No. I will not vote for him, ever.
Nope, at least, not by me. As I’ve stated before, I refuse to vote for Romney even if Lucifer himself is the other option.
Those are Newt's NATIONAL numbers, a 12 point decline in 3 weeks.
In Iowa he's dropped from 31% to 13%.
Too bad the primary is by states and not a one day event. Go Santorum!
Yes. But not rightfully. You didn’t vote for Zero. You voted for someone you agreed with. Blame the republicans who selected a democrat to run on their spot in on the ticket.
You and I agree. No flipping way I’ll vote for Romney. Even in the booth when no one is looking. I’ll write in myself first.
Iowians are very smart people and will see that Newt is the best choice after all.
Gloves off in the next debates.
Not by me you won’t.
I absolutely refuse to vote for Romney... no way, no exceptions.
In fact, if Romney wins the nomination, I might vote for Obama.... just so I can say that I voted for a Black Muslin bastard born of a communist whore.
Romney can’t win and will not win against Obama, so it really won’t matter.
Just don't complain about Obama's Supreme Court picks.
In Iowa he's dropped from 31% to 13%.”
And yet, he's still tied for first. As far as trends go, Spendtorum has been at 7% or less for his entire campaign, including now as he “surges” in Iowa - where he has lived for two years and met every single resident.
Of course, after all of his effort I'm sure you'll be telling us how about 18,000 votes in Iowa is proof he will be the next President.....all he needs is two years to campaign in each state!
If you are right, I might post my very first thread, apologizing to all of the insults I have been making about the Iowans over the past couple of days.
LOL... If you’re not right, I’ll never stop from insulting them. ;>)
Newt has also dropped like a rock in New Hampshire, from 24% support down to his current 9% in the latest Suffolk tracking poll.
Massachusetts? Then I would not feel guilty for not voting the Presidential ticket. Neither candidate is going to waste money campaigning there as those electoral votes are owned by Obama. The only bluer state I can think of is your socialist neighbor Vermont where I think they view Obama as too conservative and wish Putin was on the ticket.
Ted Kennedy (D-HELL) was the worst thing to ever happen to US politics. Proving you can get away with murder. What a bar lowering that was. Getting re-elected time and again? Mind numbing. Boston is so full of shit, they deserve everything they get.
I am right. Those Iowians are very smart people and have the sanity of mind to understand the importance their votes are to the rest of America.:)
yes, the trend is... there hasn’t been a debate in 2 weeks.
Fortunately the rest of the country has not seen the lying attack adds that Newt has had put up against him. That is probably a good thing as Newt can now counter them with his own adds in the rest of the country. Rick Santorum can now expect the Newt treatment.
One more thing. GO NEWT!
“Those are Newt’s NATIONAL numbers, a 12 point decline in 3 weeks.”
The press gave them a hand in spreading how he’s been tanked and ran the ads 24/7. It’s all we’ve heard about. In a general campaign, the news from one state will not be the only source of information and he will have money to fight back. And, he won’t have Perry and Bachmann and Paul and all the bullshit focused on him from five campaigns. Just one, and it will be coming from the worst President in history. How effective will his campaign be? The lies are out now.
“Fortunately the rest of the country has not seen the lying attack adds that Newt has had put up against him.”
Oh please...the MSM is running them 24/7. “P5rocess stories” they call it, when they are campaigning against the R’s.
Not that I care all that much about Iowa, but why are Newt and Paul flipped numbers there vs. national numbers? I hope all the pundits are wrong and Newt is 1st or 2nd tomorrow. I feel Santorum is Iowa’s Huckabee but . . . otherwise. But then I don’t live there and haven’t been hit by all the negative ads but then I don’t let the ads tell me who to vote for either.
which means RomObama has to step up the smear attacks on Newt. I am soooooooooooooo looking forward to the debate this saturday and hope Newt is on fire. Time to take off the gloves and expose Romney for the low down pos he his...wake UP America!!!!!!!!!! Romney is not much better than Obama
WOOHOO! Go Newt!
Lucifer is the other option. I will never vote for Mittens the dog abuser in a primary, but whoever wins and runs against Obama will get my vote.
I might vote for Obama
You make me puke! No real conservative could ever vote for that Marxist SOB. You might be more at home over at the DUmp.
Amen, Amen, Amen!!!
I will blame the RNC elites who support and stack the deck in favor of unelectable RINOS like Romney.
I would vote Constitution Party or whatever the option is for actual conservatives.
I will not vote for Obama, but I will not vote for Mitt Romney either. So I might just go fishing if I have no other choice.
Romney’s picks for supreme court could be much worse. Have you seen some of the moderate republican picks? Have you seen the judges he choose in Mass.? They are left of any of the current justices we have now. Mitt will be a republican so his choices will be harder to oppose. Obama is will have to come to the center on his judgest to get them through, Mitt will not have to do that. Romney is worse than Obama in a lot of ways. That being said I could never vote for Mr. O, ever. But I can say the same thing about Mr. Romney
Not in my book even know I will vote for Obama over Romney.
In my book Republicans can shove Romney up their ass.
LOL.... You took me serious.
If I could click a “like” button, I do it with your post.
Do you have ANY evidence whatsoever that Romneys’ picks would be any better than Obama’s?
If there is enough down ticket voting to enable the Republicans to keep the House and possibly take the Senate, there's going to be great pressure on Romney from within his own party to pick conservative judges.
Not so with Obama where Republicans would have to compromise.

Kind of how having both houses made Bush into a fiscal conservative....er, wait a minute.....
