Gingrich winning in Minnesota (Newt 50%, Mitt29% in head to head)
Public Policy Polling ^ | 1/25/12 | staff

Posted on 01/25/2012 10:19:54 AM PST by TexasFreeper2009

Newt Gingrich has a large lead in Minnesota...for the moment. Our weekend polling there found him with 36% to 18% for Mitt Romney, 17% for Rick Santorum, and 13% for Ron Paul.

If Santorum's out of the race by the time Minnesota's vote comes around it could work to Gingrich's further advantage. Santorum voters prefer Gingrich to Romney 44-20 if they had to pick between the two and overall Minnesota Republicans pick Gingrich 50-29 in a head to head with Romney.

Considering the different threads I am seeing today exposing really dumb statements made today by Mitt, I am thinking we may be able to mark today, January 25th, 2012, as the day Mitt officially melted down.

This thing will be over after Super Tuesday. Goodbye Mittens and the Establishment candidate.

You can only imagine what Romney's internal polling is showing him and his staff.

No wonder Romney is foaming at the mouth.

Go Newt! You've got the big MO...take it all the way!

The next step in this meltdown will be Mitt's donning a dark suit and riding his bicycle door to door in FL.

The step after that will be when he buys a case of Coca Cola and a carton of Marboros and starts cussing in public.

This race won’t be over until June. It will be a fight to the death for delegates, just like Bambi vs. Hitlery in 2008.

Newt will probably surge and implode a few more times before this is over.

If we are lucky, the convention will just disregard these results and nominate somebody entirely different.

You must be out of your ever-lovin' mind. Just what kind of candidate do you think the E-GOP would nominate.

Hint: It would be the farthest thing from a conservative as could be.

That is not going to happen. If Newt wins he's in. And if what you say does transpire, the Rockefeller Establishment would likely split the party, and where the beginnings of a serious new party would start to form.

Newt will probably surge and implode a few more times before this is over.

Highly unlikely. It is Mittens Romney who keeps getting rejected by the Republican electorate time after time, which is the correct and accurate understanding of the 2012 Republican primaries.

This race won’t be over until June. It will be a fight to the death for delegates, just like Bambi vs. Hitlery in 2008.

No one really knows unless he has a magical crystal ball, but the trend favors Gingrich ending this sooner and not Mittens.

This best thing about this news is it destroys the myth that Romney was going to sweep the February contests, AND it would be a loss for Mitt in one of the few states he actually won against McCain.

Yeah, it will be someone different alright, because the establishmentarians will decide Mitt is too far to their political right after all.

Mike Castle and Charlie Crist are available. How about another go-round for McCain? Of course, Colin Powell will have to weigh in with his 2 cents worth as well before jumping back on the the bus Hopeychangey Part Deux .

Whoever takes the MN primary had better savor it. It`ll be the last win for any GOPer for Prez until 2016`s primary. MN is one of those rock-solid guaranteed states for the dems. Even CA has swung GOP three times and MA once since MN last went Republican.

Agreed. It's not over until somebody has a majority of total delegates. Maybe not even then if some of the supposed committed delegates are Ron Paul moles.

It's not really over until next January, when Obama gets on the plane out of DC.

These in-your-face-media-pundits have overly inflated egos, which makes them think their beliefs and "superior influence" determines and trumps what you believe, even when it is not correct or logical.

Encouraging but this would be a surprise; it would seem MN would be prime Romney territory.

MN's caucus is on the 7th. Things can change if Mitt pulls a win in FL, however.

“Romney dropped out 2 days after Super Tuesday in 2008...”

And allegedly continued to undermine the eventual candidate and most specifically, his running mate. He will go the whole way on this one, and he will go to the mats to secure the defeat of the eventual GOP ticket if the name ‘Romney’ does not appear on it. His whole view of the cosmos hinges on this, IMO.

Romney needs to be crushed with finality in this cycle, and his peanut gallery needs to feel the love too. Quislings.

“No one really knows unless he has a magical crystal ball”

No need for crystal balls. Most states this year are not winner takes all, so these guys are always picking up delegates even when they don’t win. Newt will probably win most red states and Romney most blue states. There will be no knock out punches and this thing will stay undecided until the very end.

They need 1,144 delegates to close the deal. To put that in perspective, the winner in Florida will only walk away with 50. And you also have Santorum and Ron Paul picking up delegates all over the place. This thing won’t be over anytime soon.

We all need to remember the hatchet job that the GOP establishment did on a number of the Tea Party supported Senatorial candidates in 2010. If Gingrich wins, it would not be beyond the RNC to pull its punches in the election against Obama. They wouldn’t openly repudiate Gingrich, but the funds and other resources may be very sparse.

I know what the magic number is 1,144. Florida still has about 300 "soft delegates" and the winner of FL would likely receive the bulk of those depending how the race goes.

In SC, also a state penalized, as I recall, the soft delegate count (25) will depend on who won what congressional district. Gingrich as I remember won all those Cong districts except maybe one. Gingrich's soft and hard delegate count for SC is about 48 delegates won. Romney got probably just 2.

It will be zip, nada for Santo and zip for Paul in SC.

I disagree we can win Minnesota this time.
Obama’s job approval rating has averaged 44% in Gallup Daily tracking since the start of January. That is below the approval rating of seven out of eight previous incumbents at a comparable point in their presidencies. It exceeds the ratings of only one — Bill Clinton — in early January 1996.

With five of the eight former presidents who sought re-election — George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, and Lyndon Johnson — winning a second term, and three — George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Gerald Ford — losing, the January approval ratings do not appear to be strongly predictive of the election outcome.

However, by March of the re-election year, approval ratings for all of the prior presidents largely portended their fate. Ford’s, Carter’s, and the elder Bush’s March ratings were all well below 50%, while Clinton’s, Reagan’s, Nixon’s, and Johnson’s were above that mark. George W. Bush’s rating was 49%, right on the cusp.

Michelle Bachmann running for her seat again will help the tea party carry the day against the Obamintes in Minnesota.
