Newt #’s are surging into the mid 20’s (10-15 points) since Santorum droped out!
Once that surge to stop the RINO Romney for securing the nomination! then we can fight this out at the convention!
I see two scenarios. The best one being Newt stays in the race and actually wins...! Quite a longshot but worth hoping for. The second is Newt stays in the race in accordance with the speculation in my previous post. Not nearly as good, but Newt as veep will reduce the nausea caused by voting for Romney in the general.
PPP's newest- and perhaps final- poll on the national GOP race finds Mitt Romney running away with 54% of the Republican vote to 24% for Newt Gingrich and 14% for Ron Paul. Those numbers don't suggest Gingrich will have much of an ability to compete in any of the remaining primaries. Romney's net favorability is now +42 at 65/23, a 23 point improvement from a month ago when he was at +19 (54/35).
Romney is now winning all of the groups that he had struggled with over the course of the primary season. He's up 47-35 on Gingrich with Tea Partiers, 50-30 with Evangelicals, and 48-33 with 'very conservative' voters.
And from the PPP related article regarding the same this morning:
The most striking number in the poll may be Romney's 72/16 favorability with Tea Party voters. That's definitely indicative of a party base ready to get on the same page.
Your grasping some pretty thin, short straws if you think these results are a sign of a Newt surge or convention floor fight.
