Santorum in the last 3 Gallup tracking polls:

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??

Polls mean nothing.. it’s whatever the poller wants to report for the most part.

I’ll see what happens in November.

Newt ping!

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?

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.

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!

Those are Newt's NATIONAL numbers, a 12 point decline in 3 weeks.

In Iowa he's dropped from 31% to 13%.

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.

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.

“Those are Newt's NATIONAL numbers, a 12 point decline in 3 weeks.

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!

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.

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.

“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.

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.

Steady except that Santorum's support has more than tripled. A win or place in Iowa could give him a head of steam.

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

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.
