Newt Trails Obama by Only 7 Points in Latest Rasmussen Tracking Poll (or It's Not Over Yet).
Vanity | April 21, 2012 | True Believer

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 establishment’s 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 Romney’s wins and Newt’s 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?

I have NO idea. I remain praying for Newt, for Romney to somehow be stopped, for a floor fight at the convention and for Divine Intervention.

My trust is in Him.

I’m a Santorum man. But I’m ready for war. We must stop Romney or we are doomed.

RE "I'm a Santorum man." I know it must have been a rough couple weeks, and I am glad you are back in the fray...

You are right, we have to stop Romney for so MANY reasons, the least of which is how him finally being given the nomination will so embolden the GOP-e that they will have even more disdain and disrespect for the conservative base than they do now... and they have a great great deal.

Newt, as he is still in, needs to pick his veep, and shake things up... that is all I can see that will do it...

Santorum or West... would satisfy just about everybody... there are varying reports who is balking, but I think time is a great healer and so is distance..

Romney was asking RNC delegates in Arizona on Friday to sign pledges that they’ll vote for him on EVERY ballot at the convention. That’s not a sign of someone who is “inevitable” or has the nomination. That’s the sign of someone very scared that he will not hit 1,144 delegates and the nominee will be up for a vote at the convention. So if even Romney knows he’s not the inevitable nominee, why do his supporters not agree with him?

Judging by Dick Morris’ logic, that undecided voters break against the incumbent, Newt would win the presidency 53 to 47.

I have no reason to engage a debate with Romney supporters because they all think the same:

I believe that the criminal GOP is only concerened with locking the Senate in 2012. The senate and house will make zero a hero in the next 4 years much like they did with bubba at the expence of what ever is left of the American people and it’s spirit. We are being dragged over thier finish line whether we like it or not.

Romney is poser RINO dog who is helping Obama AGAIN.

Romney for Obama in 2011



“White House Quotes Romney in Defense of Health Care”



Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."


Chihuahua Romney - the One and the Only "Magic RINO(TM)":

"Obama was born in the United States"

"Obama Doesn’t Need a Birth Certificate"

"The citizenship test has been passed"


Milt Romney in 2007

Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan



"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism
or socialism on people has been by way of medicine..."

I’m just sad - sad that so many of you seem to be willing to abandon Mitt in the general. I was for Sarah Palin on November 4, 2008. I later donated and campaigned for Cain, and then for Bachmann. You might deny it but I have the cred. I walked the walk. And you are talking about campaigning for Obama. Oh yes you are! You’re not saying that but you are talking about voting against Romney in the general. All of you who do so are are freaking Obama supporters.

Now is not the time to make the decision to support Romney. The tactic of, if you don’t support Romney you’re supporting obama, is another attempt to undermine the support of other Conservative candidates and those who proclaim now, yeah I’ll vote for Romney are one of the reasons Romney has the attitude of to hell with conservatives, they’ll vote for me anyway. I’m for Newt as long as he says he’s in and then I’ll be for any one but Romney. IF Romney gets the nomination or the FIRM 1144 delegates, I’ll reassess my position and examine ALL alternatives.

My sincere apologies the inadvertent double post.

That said, love or hate Newt (and there's no question he's a gifted speaker), he's not going to win the nomination. His campaign at this point is little more than a glorified book tour to bolster a career in political punditry.

[ Defeatism is not how wars are won. ]

Defeatism is not even considered by PollyAnna’s...
Because they play the “GLAD GAME”...

The truth “IS” democrats have been smarter than republicans..
Thats WHY Romney is due to be republican candidate..

WHEN... everybody KNOWS Newt is “THE ONE”..
AND why republicans generally could care less about “Voter fraud”..
If O’Really and Dennis Miller are examples thats why we are losing.. i.e. PollyAnnas..

The FNC Sunday morning talking head show crowd is breaking out in a cold sweat. Their anointed one isn’t breaking out, despite their premature concerted efforts to paint him as the nominee. Conservatives don’t want mittens and neither do independents.

“You’re not saying that but you are talking about voting against Romney in the general.”

What the Newt supporters here aren’t admitting yet is that Newt’s campaign is all about getting enough delegates to make a difference to Romney - and possibly secure a spot on the Romney ticket (and get him to pay his campaign debts). THEN they’ll all say it’s a good idea to vote for Romney......

Neither Newt nor Romney is a conservative, despite what they both say.

How exactly do you know that? I mean, did Newt tell you? Somebody on his staff? Are you maybe projecting what you would do in a similar situation? Is that how the Santorum supporters explain their boy dropping out, not willing to put it on the line in PA? Or are you just super super smart, prescient, with x-ray vision into people's souls?

I mean you couldn't even keep track of the number of times you posted to me... Not confidence inspiring, friend...

“I will never vote for Romney.”

Yes you will - you are so enamored with Newt’s BS, you’ll vote for Romney when Newt, the erstwhile sort of conservative, throws in with Romney.

Newt talks like a conservative (at least now he does), but behaves like a progressive.

Romney is a NE Liberal, or a progressive or....?

Both Newt and Romney are for themselves before they are for America.

You, me and everyone else will probably ultimately pull the lever for Romney to get rid of Obama. I wish it weren’t so.

Oh, wow. I hadn't heard that. That's a really telling sign, isn't it? And apparently, a number of them refused.

NEXT ON THE AGENDA: Santorum supporters have had time to grieve, it's time to get them to switch to Newt. Will take a very balanced deft approach. Rick is on some sort of vanity trip and trying to hold onto them by telling them to "vote their conscience" (read vote for Santorum), instead of telling them to support the LCS. Newt is truly the last conservative standing and everyone needs to get behind him. No one twisted Santorum's arm to get out of the race. It was mostly about money and not being able to win PA.

Does anyone really think if he had been ahead by 10 points in PA he would have dropped out because of family concerns? Anyone?

Telling his supporters to vote their conscience is taking support from the last conservative in the race. He needs to be separated from this strategy... or atleast his supporters do..

It’s not over yet. The R candidate is not decided. You’re apparently pushing a liberal candidate even though there Newt is still running and who knows what will happen at the convention. Are you a Mormon?
