A new poll has been released Thursday showing how Alabamians may vote in next week's GOP Primary.

The Capital Survey Research Center did a survey of 592 likely voters in Alabama from march 5-7, 2012.

Among the results, 29.9% of voters would pick Mitt Romney, 24.7% of voters pick Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum gets 20.1%, and Ron Paul has 5.6% of those polled, with 19.8% of those polled don't know or had no reply.

Great. Another state that Santorum is going to cost Gingrich and hand to Romney.

Another? Oh brother. You make me laugh with your BS. Not one state did Newt lose because of Santorum......I can’t wait to hear your proof. Now if you want to talk about states Newt ripped off Santorum.....I am available.

Time for conservatives to DECIDE. Vote either or, and don’t split the vote.

Don’t hand it to Mitt!!

I’m a Newt supporter, but I can believe he might be trailing Santorum in Alabama by a few points, and he did in Tennessee. But there’s no effing way either Santorum or Gingrich is trailing Romney in ‘bama.

Not happening. I question the methodology.

Here we go again. Anti-Romney: 50.4 percent. Romney: 29.9 percent. But, Romney wins because we split the Conservative vote. JUST DAMN!!!

I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised on 13th when Newt easily takes Alabama.

There’s a meme going around in the press and with others in the anti-Gingrich crowd to fool the people that Gingrich has no chance in winning Alabama or any other state.

Save your breath. Conservatives are hard-headed. I’m a Newt guy, but, I’d be willing for him to drop out and support Rick. Or, vice versa. But, most people on here would rather bite their nose off to spite their face than budge an inch. Short of a miracle, it will be the Moderate Mormon versus the Marxist Muslim in the Fall. JUST DAMN!!!

I’m voting for Newton Leroy Gingrich.

I don’t think anything short of a natural disaster can save our culture, but I’d like to watch Newt try.

Santorum would “manage the decline”. Romney is a fascist whether he knows it or not — he’s a marionette for the finance market criminals. Paul, poor Paul. He’s the kid that saves up his lunch money every week, only to have it stolen every Friday. And of course there is Obama, who knowingly works for the destruction of Western Civilization.

OK I did a minute or 2 of Googling, and the trend is in Newt’s direction. Look at this:

http://argojournal.blogspot.com/2012/03/poll-watch-capital-survey-research.html

It shows the figures of the poll just released, next to a last ‘bama poll of about a week ago. Both Santorum & Romney are static (or down a tad), but Newt is rising.

Yeah, I thought so.

I believe that all the negative and lying ads against Newt are at a point of ‘diminishing returns’, and at this point, the best candidate for the job will stand out among the rest and that candidate is Newt Gingrich.

I hope so - Santorum the big government conservative is just splitting the vote and handing it to Mitt - just like an establishment guy ALWAYS does.

Facts don’t matter. We should ignore the fact that Santorum has won far more primaries than Newt.

BTW, how can Alabamans be so obtuse? Romney should be in the single digits.

If It ends up being Romney - Santorum - Gingrich - Paul again, I am going to be pissed. Alabama of all places should not be picking Romney as their savior. Alabama must be turning RINO too. I agree with your post.

Compared to the prior poll, which is dated Feb. 9, Mitt and Newt are both up 3 points, while Rick is down 2 and the Ronulan is minus 1.

One has to feel sorry for voters, for months they have been brainwashed that Romney is the only candidate that can beat Obama. The irony is that these people claim they despise the MSM, yet they hang on every word written or spoken, and fall right in line.

Oh, wait. Santorum is down 3, not down 2 compared to the Feb. 9 poll.

Same exact thing was said in Tennessee and Oklahoma. I mean I hope Newt or Santorum wins but to have the same script read every day until Tuesday is a bit crazy.

Red, red, red—— thanks for the ping, but alas, I posted this poll at NOON today. Geez, you’re getting to be just like Rick and Mitt— always copying what visionary Newt has to say.

LOL,— never give up, my friend. It’s not over, unless and until Newt says it’s over.

Once again, napscoordinator, you’re truth challenged, and cannot read.

Romney has not won a single primary in a Southern state. The Southern states were won by Gingrich (South Carolina, Georgia) or Santorum (Oklahoma, Tennessee.) So if you really do hope Santorum or Gingrich wins a Southern state, you’ll likely get your wish.

I’m not reading from a script; I’m dealing in facts. And you’re indulging in stupidity.

When you write “To: BCrago66” you’re directing a comment to BCrago66.

You have trouble with cogitation. Nothing going on in the cerebral cortex. Flat-liner. Inert.
