One thing that is clear this election, MOMENTUM is everything. Which ever direction it is headed right before a primary, that is the way it usually turns out.
Your post made my day! Thank you!
Regrettably, red, today Rasmussen has it Rick 34 R 30 NEWT 18.
I’m hoping that the PPP tweet- has the latest #’s.
A swing to Gingrich...and regrettably Romney...is underway. It's happening very, very quickly.
I would not be surprised to see Santorum finish 3rd or 4th in TN.
Let’s rev it up in the south! GO NEWT! btw..love the “Die Hard” logo!
If this holds up, rather than being another PPP attempt to move the voters, congratulations are in order for nominee Romney and President Obama. Romney would likely get 300+ of the 466 delegates up on Tuesday. This would put Romney at 40% of the needed delegates with 35% of them assigned. Since the polls show a large block of “Even the Devil is better than Obama voters,” the Romney-Paul combine would be in the driver’s seat.
Or, to put it more simply, Santorum is down; Romney is up; Newt is nearly unchanged.
I’m hoping the story about Romney’s USA Today op-ed from 2009 urging Obama to incorporate an individual mandate in his health care reform plan will gain some traction on talk radio and alternative media outlets tomorrow. If it does, that may reverse the momentum Romney currently seems to have going into Super Tuesday. After all, Romney has been claiming repeatedly throughout the debates that he’s against an individual mandate on a federal level, yet his 2009 op-ed reveals his total hypocrisy on this issue.
An essentially three-way tie would be excellent news. I'd hate to see Santorum win TN easily, much less at all.
Yesterday his supporters were crying foul over his screw ups regarding Ohio delegates.
Santorum doesn't even have a slate of registered delegates in TN; evidently the party will pick him some if he wins any.
There is a way for Newt to sweep Super Tuesday.
It's not too late for Newt and Sarah to have that long phone conversation and announce a joint Newt/Sarah team for President/Vice President.
". . And if I am nominated, I have asked Sarah Palin, and she has accepted, to be the Vice Presidential nominee. I ask you America, for the sake of our Sacred Republic, to vote for us on Super Tuesday." . .
I hope that Tennessee goes for Santorum, though a Gingrich win there would be acceptable. The worst thing possible would be for Santorum and Gingrich to split the conservative vote. This has happened in Tennessee in a number of statewide elections lately.
I hope Gingrich does well in TN. This mid-state voter has been pushing very hard. I want to remind the voters that you also select delegates in this vote. Go with Perry and Gingrich. There are 3 pages of delegates to choose from.
This would be pretty amazing, given that Rasmussen just had a poll for yesterday which showed a 2-way tie, with GIngrich 14 points behind. (34/30/18).
I can understand if Santorum was “collapsing”, and Gingrich getting his voters, that PPP would see a 2-way tie with Gingrich and Romney, and Santorum trailing.
But how would you get from the Rasmussen friday poll to a 3-way tie, unless Romney also was losing a significant share of support? And why would Romney be losing support after winning Michigan and Washington?
Unfortunately, a “twitter” is not something you can actually analyze for clues, so I guess we’ll have to wait for the full poll report to see.
I’ve already early voted for Newt. Unless you can get me a 2nd and 3rd opportunities everybody who has yet to vote on Tuesday better get their a$$ in gear.
Another tie would be interesting, 3 way instead of 2 way like in Michigan and Washington State
Newt Goes Full Throttle In The South!
Welcome to the party
Check this out....
Early voting was a long enough period that any candidate has as much chance to win those votes as those cast on March 6.
When early voting started I believe Newt was the hot item and by the end it was Santorum.
I’m voting Newt tomorrow.
