Skip to comments.Gingrich winning in Minnesota (Newt 50%, Mitt29% in head to head)

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.

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.
Awesome catch! Gonna go check them out.

dont touch the hair...
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 .
Romney dropped out 2 days after Super Tuesday in 2008...
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.
I love it!
I have my Newt yard sign here in communist Illinois home of Zero! I bet Newt is winning here but since we have ton of liberal check pants Repubs, who knows!
What does THAT mean?
If true, it’s over.
Thanks! I’d like to see the polls in each state.
No suit needed. Just dark pants and a SHORT sleeved white dress shirt, tie, and name badge.
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.
