PRINCETON, NJ -- Republican registered voters nationally continue to prefer Newt Gingrich over Mitt Romney for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, with no sign in Gallup Daily tracking from Jan. 22-26 that Gingrich is giving back any of his recent gains. The 32% of Republican voters now choosing Gingrich as the candidate they are most likely to support for the nomination is his highest level of support since the 2012 primary voting began in early January. The 24% supporting Romney is his lowest.
Despite the heavy media focus on the two front-runners, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum are each holding their own at just under 15%, putting the two men in a statistical tie for third.

And its all because they had to tear Newt’s conservative credentials apart because Romney has none. That is what makes it even worse.
The national poll does not mean as much. He needs to win this state by state.
Palin weighs in
Cannibals in GOP Establishment Employ Tactics of the Left
I will quit going to Drudges site, stop listening to Beck and Savage, and may not vote for Mitt.
“Santorum needs to drop out and throw his support to Newt.”
I completely agree, but Santorum lives in a fantasy land, and will never drop out until he runs out of money.
I think they actually believe that once they get their man nominated, we will all form a line behind him. They are very, very wrong.
We are used to that kind of thing here in New York State. The Rockefeller GOP has been more afraid of the conservatives in their own party than they have been of the Dems for a long time.
Why? Because it affects them personally. Threatens to take the reins of power away from them and give them to others. Selfish, basically. It took me a couple of years after switching parties to figure this out, while most people knew it all along.
Now we are seeing much the same conflict acted out on the national stage.
I see, in that photo, the real problem.Elitists one and all.
Share with your friends.
Is that a bust of President Obama just to the left pf President Bush? If so, isn’t that knd of weird?
I know this much: They're wrong if they think I'll be in that line behind Romney
But the fact is, they have huge reason to assume "we will all form a line behind [Romney]." It's because folks on our own side are telling us WE MUST. Levin, Rush, Hannity, even my beloved Palin, are all touting the "Anybody But Obama" line. Levin won't even allow callers to declare that they won't vote for Romney if it's him against Obama -- The Great One, whom I adore, kindly halts his callers before they go too far and express such sentiment, and Rush simply ridicules and scorns people like me.
At least Palin has said/written more than once: " ... the challenge of this election is not simply to replace President Obama. The real challenge is who and what we will replace him with. Its not enough to just change up the uniform. If we dont change the team and the game plan, we wont save our country."
After long and measured thought, I've concluded that Romney would be WORSE than Obama in obstructing GOP and conservatism's efforts to save this nation; conservative Republicans could fight statism with Obama, whereas they would be hamstrung and defused by Romney in fighting statism.
It's counter-intuitive, just like steering INTO the skid instead of against it to correct course when water or ice causes your vehicle to lose control, is counter-intuitive. IT TAKES GUTS to take a risky, new approach because the old one isn't working.
Frankly, the GOP Establishment, lacking guts itself, is reasonably expecting the rest of us to lack the guts to reject their guy even if he is wearing the "Republican" uniform. They have every reason to think we'll line up behind him, no matter how much we reject him now.
But here's the truth that some of us have come to recognize: Romney may be wearing "our" uniform, but he's playing for the other team.
Mark Levin, Rush, and even Palin can tell me to vote for that if they want, and THIS TIME, I will respectfully decline. For the first time in more than 35 years of always voting straight Republican ticket.
Einstein had a definition for insanity, and I've engaged in it for long enough. If Romney gets the nomination, my vote will go elsewhere in the 2012 Presidential race for the good of my country.
This really demonstrates the advantage of being able to carpet bomb a state with propaganda.
Romney is falling like a rock.
That is the reason for the onslaught.
In the photo, is that a bust of Nero (President Obama) just over President Bush’s right shoulder?
Newt’s got to stick it out way beyond Florida. We have to beat Romney. He is the whiter Obama. I really hope Palin gtes out there with Newt soon, it will help drive his numbers up. And let me pose this question: if Mitt does win the nomination and then inevitably loses to 0bama will he finally get the F**K OUT OF OUR FACES?
Its definately a bust of an angry black man.Other than that I cant say.
For the three of THEM to “just happen” to have a meeting FOUR days before the Florida primary?????????????
