Skip to comments.Newt Trails Obama by Only 7 Points in Latest Rasmussen Tracking Poll (or It's Not Over Yet).
Posted on 04/21/2012 8:08:35 PM PDT by true believer forever
In the lastest Rasmussen tracking poll, which has had no media coverage, Newt Gingrich is trailing Barack Obama by only 7 points nationally. Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney by only 5 points in Florida. These poll results are being withheld by the RNC and the MSM, who want no positive news about Newt in circulation, especially the fact he is only behind Obama by 7 points nationally.
The RNC establishments current strategy remains: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then hit hard with Romneys wins and Newts losses to bully Newt into dropping.
Please do yourself the honor of reviewing actual polls by doing a Google search for 2012 Republican presidential polls (name state) and you will see why the RNC is using this tactic. Then spread the word!
Obama with the dem-media complex, millions of dollars, sycophants everywhere in the media, versus Mitt Romney with the entire conservative media capitulated behind him, his millions, and NEWTON LEROY GINGRICH is only 7 points behind Obama in the lastest Rasmussen tracking?
“we are supposed to win”
“we” lose if we don’t work to educate folks that those government checks, bennies, and freebies are not consistent with conservatism for the 2016 presidential election. It may be impossible, but it must be done......
The 2012 primaries are all but over. It is going to be, with a high degree of certainty, between Obama and Romney. Since voting for the “most conservative” doesn’t really apply, I’ll opt for voting for the “least marxist”.
Rick “Snarlin Arlen” Santorum is a fiscal liberal who supported Romney in 2008 and was his stalking horse in 2012. He dropped out because he couldn’t win his home state. I have no respect for him. None.
Rick endorsed Romney ONLY 6 days before Romney dropped out - HARDLY a strong endorsement. (which Rick only gave because he thought, at the time, that Romney was better than McCain.)
I have lost so much respect for Newt for giving us Romney. Shame on Newt.
“Democrats created the last $5 TRILLION in new debt since 2006 (after Santorum left office, btw)
If we want to vet Santorum for real and not just throw talking points
lets go to the record. The record will show that Santorum was and is a solid, mainstream conservative Congressman and Senator. In the 1990s, Santorum was a part of the Gingrich-led Congress that balanced the budget. And in 2002 to 2006 the budget deficit went to $250 billion high but nothing like the level under Obama, Reid and Pelosi. Claims that Santorum is a big-government conservative are simply contrary to his full record and his conservative agenda as a candidate for President, where he wants to repeal Obamacare, cap spending at 18% and follow the Ryan roadmap and pass the BBA.
While Gingrich criticized the Ryan roadmap, Santorum embraced it.”
Of course, some will ignore these FACTS.
That's the funniest excuse that I've read in a long time! LOL
What's the excuse for his fiscal irresponsibility? Bad eyesight? LOLOL!!!!!
If we want to vet Santorum for real
Look chickie, YOU brought Santorum into a Gingrich thread. Bad idea.
Democrats created the last $5 TRILLION in new debt since 2006 (after Santorum left office, btw)
Oh good gravy! He wasted money but not as much as Democrats? LOLOL!!!
Oh my! Funny stuff!
It's been fun but I have to cook dinner.
Democrats created the last $5 TRILLION in new debt since 2006 (after Santorum left office, btw)”
I didn’t write that, the author at Red State did, probably to show how silly Rick bashers are by blaming him for everything.
Too bad you didn’t read the rest of the excerpt which shows what a fiscal conservative Rick was/is, and he embraced the Ryan plan, while Newt DID NOT.
So tell us, why were you afraid to read the entire excerpt showing FACTS on Santorum’s fiscal conservatism?
Thanks, but what does PPP stand for? (I’m showing my ignorance here:-)
That's okay, "Public Policy Polling", they are a dem pollster group, but have been pretty close in the repub primaries so far... their bias shows up a little in dem/rep match-ups, I've been told...
Some Red State authors are intelligent enough to agree with me, and some are not.
Anyway, here’s something about the man who Newt helped get the nomination:
Todd Starnes: “Details Romney in 2002 printed flyers that “promised to protect a woman’s right to choose” - p230 “The Real Romney”’
That article lists Santorums record when you scroll down. Even you can’t hide it. Ignore it but not hide it.
Good luck to your candidate which is probably Newt.
I’m not particularly a Newt basher or a Romney lover. I’m just a pragmatist looking toward Obama’s defeat on 11/06.
If Obama wins, many - probably most of his programs, XOs and regulations will be very hard to overturn or reverse.
Plus, he could likely get another chance to install a long-lived liberal on the SCOTUS. Maybe more than one.
There is nothing in Romney's record that would support their fantasies that he could be "controlled, guided or pushed" to the right. And one can't believe what Romney says as he will say whatever is expedient to reach his goal.
I'm truly shocked at those who have caved to the elites fear-mongering.
Why would I want to hide Santorum’s record?
“American Conservative Union 88%
National Right to Life Committee 100%
Americans for Tax Reform 95%
National Tax Limitation Committee 92%
U.S. Chamber of Commerce 88%
League of Private Property Voters 94%”
Not jolly, just confident I am right that Romney will be the nominee. I’m 100% confident that time will prove me correct.
Seeing reality clearly isn’t defeatism, it’s called being accurate. Fighting a war that can’t be won isn’t defeatism, it’s a waste. If I thought there was even a 1% chance of getting Newt in, I’d be fighting to make it happen. But there isn’t. Instead I’m gonna work to get a conservative Congress (to contain Romney’s liberalism) and i’m going to work to defeat Obama (and stop his untethered 2nd term that would be a radical reign of Marxist insanity).
