The Hill ^ | January 9th | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 01/09/2012 6:03:16 AM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

According to the Quinnipiac Poll released Monday, Romney leads the field among Florida Republicans with 36 percent of the vote, followed by Newt Gingrich with 24 percent, then Rick Santorum at 16 percent. Behind them, Ron Paul has the support of 10 percent of Florida Republicans, Rick Perry has five and Jon Huntsman trails with two percent. The poll also found that 54 percent of Florida Republicans say they could change their minds in the coming weeks.

The case needs to be made that either Gingrich or Santorum needs to get out of the race. ******BUT LET THE PRIMARY VOTERS DECIDE****** It's not that I'm choosing either one. I'm confident that either one could beat Romney, and then go on to beat Obama in the general.

But right now the conservative vote is split. The establishment vote is unified. We conservatives can't win this way.

For you Newt supporters, I'd rather unify with your Gingrich than see Romney lose in the general.

For you Santorum supporters, I'd rather unify with your Rick than see Romney lose in the general.

And for you Perry supporters, I'm sorry but it looks like he'll be leaving soon.

I'm past looking solely at one candidate, I'm looking to preventing Obama from having a re-match with McCain. That's my #1 goal. Mitt McCain must be stopped. We already know how 2008 ended up.

Like I have been saying for days the best thing that ever happened to Romney was the Santorum surge.

Santorum doesn’t stand a chance of beating Romney, but will split off enough conservative from Gingrich to hand the nomination to Romney.

i really wish that the folks in Texas who are discussing getting behind one candidate would hurry up and do so. There is a large group of pastors and conservative leaders who are going to settle once and for all and get behind a candidate. They want to do this after the South Carolina primary, but I don’t see why they can’t do this now. I think they started discussions this past weekend.

Well Newt sure did take votes away from Santorum in Iowa. I find it hilarious that you think Santorum should drop out when he has a clear win and Newt had a disastrous finish. I don't care which 3 wins but why you always have to bash Santorum is a sad commentary on you.

Exactly, been saying it as well.

Looking at the numbers here, if it wasn’t for the ‘Santorum surge’, Newt would still be statistically tied with Romney here.

Look at the national #s, Santorum can’t compete as effectively as Newt can. Santorum won in IA because he pandered his life away there for a year and was seemingly the only recourse left after Romney’s PAC blitz through IA.

National polls don’t care when it is a state by state contest. Funny how polls are suddenly important when it supports your agenda. Anyway, I want to wait and see how Santorum does in South Carolina before he drops out or maybe even Florida. However, Newt should drop out if he does not do well in SC or FL also.

Problem is, the TX Primary has been moved from March to April b/c the Libs, Dems and NAACP have challenged the new Redistricting maps and it’s going to court. TX will NOT be part of Super Tuesday.

We do need to unify. Whatever happens in South Carolina, Florida will follow. Too much of the voting electorate are unfortunately complete lemmings.

I vote Newt.

I think you misread the post (I did), because it was poorly written.

He/She said (to paraphrase), “I’d rather vote for Newt than see Romney lose in the General.”

What he/she meant to say was “I’m willing to vote for either Gingrich or Santorum, rather than wind up with Romney as the nominee, who will, in turn (he/she’s implying, but not clearly stating), go on to lose the general election.”

I hope that helps.

Florida: Mitt-36, Newt-24, Santorum-16

South Carolina: Mitt-30, Newt-23, Santorum-19

Santorum’s bounce out of Iowa has already peaked and started to fade in N.H..

It’s pretty clear what’s going on here.

Wasn't talking about national polls: I'm talking about this one, and ones we're seeing coming out of other vital states like SC.

Funny how polls are suddenly important when it supports your agenda.

I've never been one to dismiss polls as irrelevant, so I'm not sure what you're talking about. Done right, polls are usually a reasonable indicator of what the prevailing trends are. And fact is, this trend is not a good one for us ABR folks.

Anyway, I want to wait and see how Santorum does in South Carolina before he drops out or maybe even Florida. However, Newt should drop out if he does not do well in SC or FL also.

By that time, it will be too late to effectively defeat Romney if he carries SC.

The “Social Conservatives” are what’s supporting Santorum. I don’t care for him (but had an open mind for a long long time), and agree with his nephew. He doesn’t think that freedom works, and wants to force everyone to do what he thinks is best (which may or may not be). We don’t need a dictator, even if he thinks he’s Constantine.

On every other issue, he’s about as liberal as they come, but then again, so is virtually everyone else left in this Republican primary.

Well then I guess they need to make the decision today. So who has had the most success in the race thus far? The other one needs to drop out today. Sounds fair to me.

Well we had almost 4 years after watching McCain lose and insisting it was because McCain wan't conservative enough. What happened? Maybe the conservative party within a party should be called the Herding Cats party. Now that's a party that could really change...wait, there's a bird...

I think I read your post correct. I was asking if you were willing to vote for someone you didn’t fully support in order to vote against someone you support less. That’s holding your nose and voting... something that’s happened since Adams and Jefferson ran against each other and something that some people insist they will never do.

The funny part of this poll: Huntsman at 2%. Last year, the Hussein employee opened his national campaign headquarters in Orlando, and a fawning Florida media praised his presence.

Then they were silent when he left Florida with his tail between his legs.

What is the evidence Santorum’s support would largely go to Gingrich?
I suspect this is true but all along the process someone has claimed if you vote for this guy you are electing Obama or Rom
Otherwise, the overall effect is all the candidates are fighting harder. While Romney hasn’t taken a knock out punch I have notice he is taken a couple that made him wobble a bit.
I personally would like to see Santorum or Gingrich to land a TKO that totally takes him out of the equation.
Leaving a choice between Santorum or Gingrich.
I think in that situation Gingrich would win the nom.

I agree and that is not enough to help Santorum win the nomination and it is not enough to help him win the general election, even against Obama. Also, IMO the lame stream media will destroy Santorum over his social positions. Social concerns are not as important to voters as they are here on FR.

Bush 43's bounce didn't fade after Iowa in 2000. Clinton didn't win either Iowa or NH in '92. Hillary came in 3rd in Iowa 4 years ago, then won NH and NV before getting dusted in SC. There are plenty of other historical examples.

I don't really think you can look at one state and divine the outcome in the next.

Well, I know one thing that was going on in Iowa. I watched a Fox New affiliate clip (I saw it on another program the morning before the caucus, but am not sure on which it was)that said that the establishment was going to have the Caucus leaders try and sway the caucus goers away from Ron Paul and toward Romney and Santorum.

Now I don’t know if that is truly the case (—that it happened—I know for sure it was said, as I watched the interview), but it can explain part of the bump for both Santorum and the lesser turnout for Ron Paul. Then again, there was talk of having Demcrat crossover to vote for Ron Paul, so it may have been a wash. Either way, Santorum will not have much support outside of Iowa. The fact is that people don’t like what he’s saying. I am only marginally politically active on FR, but very politically active in real life (or in person, however you say), and have daily conversations with business and personal contacts with people about the election. Not a single person has liked Santorum that I have spoken to, Conservative, Liberal, or Independent.

The Republican party is fading as it should be. We were warned against a two party system, and now all we have is the one party with two heads. The Tea party MUST stand up for Constitutional, Limited Government, not the lesser of two evils. That will always get you evil, and it always gets worse. When we have citizen detention bills passed with near unanimous support, it should be a clue that the politicians don’t have our best interest in mind, no matter the letter behind their name. There’s not a single “Constitutional Conservative” Republican left in the race. Herman Cain was close, Sarah Palin didn’t run, and Ron Paul is a Libertarian (just below an anarchist).

If I remember correctly. Jim Robinson said on a thread last week, that if Romney gets the Republican nomination, that he’ll work to form a third party, because FR, after all,is going to remain Anti-Romney. That may be the very best thing that has every happened to politics in America. People need to finally stand up and say “NO!” to big government politicians. It started 2 years ago with the Tea Party. The enemy (evil/liberalism) NEVER relents. If you slide with it, you’ll always slide. The Founding Fathers are rolling over the Patriot Act, written by none other than Joe Biden, and there was outrage but the frog’s pot was allowed to steep slowly. Now we have FEMA campes (read an article last year about the funding for their expansion, but not going to go into it at the moment/on this thread), and civilian detainment.

The answer isn’t more government to force you to do something. The answer is little government, and people actually facing the natural consequences to their actions. Starting with politicians.

I last voted for McCain, because I liked Palin. After that, I vowed never to hold my nose and vote for someone I don’t believe in, and I won’t. I will always shoot for the bar, and if it falls short, it falls short. But I’m not going to go the political route of “not as bad as” anymore.

Here in Florida not all Santorum supporters will go to Newt.

Many older voters still remember Newt from the 90’s and just don't care for his style of cozying up with the Dems.

Also, his adultery and 3 marriages are a big turn off for many folks. Especially coupled with the fact that he was getting Lewinskied at the same time as Bill Clinton and he was second in line to the Presidency.

If Santorum doesn't do well I believe that many Floridian conservatives will just go for the Anyone But Obama candidate.

Based on what I am hearing here in SW Florida, Newt will not be the winner on January 30th.

SPARTANBURG, Sc. - Despite a disappointing 5th place finish in the Iowa Caucuses, GOP hopeful Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, pushed his campaign forward to South Carolina Sunday, explaining to voters here exactly why he’s staying in the race.

“I have never quit a day in my life, I have never quit in the face of adversity and I’m not just about to quit on the future of America,” Perry declared at his first campaign stop since his Iowa defeat.

“I am gonna stay in this race and stay in this fight because our children and this country are worth the fight.”

Staying viable takes more than sheer will. Several polls now show Perry is a non factor in South Carolina, and he needs money to keep his campaign alive.

His wife Anita, who reportedly urged her husband to stay in the race after Iowa, is now attacking his GOP rivals and asking supporters for cash.

“Despite what you read from the pundits and pollsters, the scenario for resurgence is quite plausible,” she writes in a new plea for funds.

“Governor Romney continues to be mired in the low twenties in many polls, and in fact did not improve his percentage in Iowa over four years ago by a single point. At the same time, Senator Santorum is just now receiving media scrutiny. While Rick and I admire Rick Santorum greatly, he can’t replicate his performance in Iowa where he camped out for the last year.”

For his part, Governor Perry will now be camping out in South Carolina, and campaigning here every day until the Palmetto State’s primary January 21st.

I agree. Santorum has no chance against Romney, but women are apparently voting for him because they think he’s a “nice young man.” He’s sort of priggish and squeaky clean, and I guess that appeals to some people, regardless of his ideas or lack of them. Although I think his call to take benefits away from Social Security recipients and make it and Medicare means-based (which would turn them into redistributionist welfare plans rather than, respectively, neutral pension and insurance plans) is probably not going to fly in Florida.

However, Santorum’s parents live here in Florida, and all of a sudden the press been pitching the “Santorum is nearly a native son” thing down here. He won in Iowa by moving there and having lived there for nearly a year, and by being next in line when Romney’s ads had destroyed Gingrich.

I wish people would look at ideas, but that seems to be the last thing on anybody’s list.

I seriously think the smartest thing we fan do is encourage our conservatives to unite behind one guy.

I think Newt is extremely capable in talking the two Rick's into joining his team to defeat Romney.

Let's have a Newt/Santorum ticket and put Perry in a cabinet position.

Come on guys, join forces and win!

IMO this is America; each candidate should decide for him/herself when to get out of the race, not the media and certainly not so-called religious leaders.

“Social concerns are not as important to voters as they are here on FR.”

Agreed. The fact is that people want to be left alone. Even if Santorum had the right message (I’d say it’s maybe 50/50), his anger in every sentence defies him and that message. I spoke with a friend the other day who lives in, I believe TN, (I’m not sure, but it’s that area), and I mentioned that I was watching the debate. My friend said, “I hope you don’t like Santorum. Every time I listen to him speak, I get the impression that he’s disturbed, and has some deep-seated personal issues. Maybe he does, or maybe he doesn’t, but in my life, anyone who is that angry, that much of the time, has personal issues. I have to go with my personal experience on that one.” (That’s almost verbatim.)

I never cared for Santorum after his comments that amounted to “The Tenth Amendment doesn’t exist unless I say it does,” in the initial debates. However, he did put on a good face for Iowa. However, that arrogant anger came right back in the last debate. I literally had to turn it off because I couldn’t stand to listen to him anymore. It was that bad.

In normal times, i agree with you, but this time people are having a hard time deciding on who to get behind. We as a conservative group don’t seem to have the ability to make the decision. We are killing ourselves having all three in the race. I mean when Romney could win South Carolina that is tragic. If we don’t get behind a candidate in the next week, we will end up with Romney. Yes I sound like I am nervous because I sorta am. We are going to screw this up IMHO.

Well said and I agree. Should the GOP be successful in shoving Romney down our throats, the GOP needs to be gone and I am ready to make that happen NOW, and not wait until the next presidential election.

It is pretty evident that voters can't let go of their candidate and get behind one not-Romney candidate. By time the not-Romney candidates are reduced by the primary process, it may be too late for ANY not-Romney candidate.

Good Gawd, are we all really THIS stupid? DO the math!!

24 + 16 = 40!!!

ONE has got to bow out. MUST, MUST, MUST, or we’re gonna lose.

But if they do — we WIN — with a conservative ...and we take out Obama.

What is wrong with the GOP???

At this point, we are fighting lemmings, the media, and the RINOS ...but we CAN win it - but ONE must bow out.

NOW.

If they don’t . ..well, it’s too bad that EGOS had to rule the day.

I’m getting so digusted with it all I can barely watch it ANYmORE!!

GO NEWT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
