Not So Fast: New Texas Poll Puts Gingrich in Striking Distance (PPP Romney 45- NEWT 35) ^ | 4-24-12 | Cassidy

Posted on 04/24/2012 3:18:41 PM PDT by VinL

Newt Gingrich has been inching towards the door over the last couple of days, admitting that tonight’s Delaware primary is likely a make-or-break situation for his campaign. However, a new poll out today might give the former Speaker some pause.

Public Policy Polling shows that Mitt Romney leads in the state of Texas by a 45% to 35% margin, putting Gingrich within striking distance. Coming up lame in his home state, only 14% of GOP supporters support Ron Paul.

More encouraging for Gingrich, or troubling for Romney, is that the presumptive nominee is trailing the former Speaker 45% to 40% among Evangelicals, a major force in Southern Republican politics.

Gingrich also leads among Republicans under the age of 45.

Had Tom Tancredo already dropped out by March 4 of ‘08?

This could be a prayer come true.

Oh blow it out your b*^t. Your posts are nothing but ‘it’s bad news for Newt’. Carry your maggot mittbot water somewhere else. Conservatives aren’t interested in your PRO HOMO baby killing LIBERAL POS candidate.

GO NEWT! Squash the maggot and all his evil ways! If not, barry will be serving maggot meat to the dogs.

when Perry dropped out I supported Newt - until it became obvious he wasn't going to win

Ditto that. When Mitt hits Texas, Perry will endorse him. They'd actually make a good team if Perry could get past the beating he took. He'd also be great in the Dept. of Energy. Or maybe in charge of eliminating the EPA.

Oh blow it out your b*^t.

I can say with absolute confidence that your comments are regularly some of the most vile, disturbed, and nutty posts on FR. The loopy, obnoxious word jumbles you frequently post add nothing to the debate, often make no sense, and for someone claiming to be fighting evil you sound very much like those you claim to oppose. I think you genuinely need mental help, and I hope you are able to seek and get it.

The eagle has landed - card arrived in the mail yesterday, so y’all can call off the hounds. I guess I’m a Paulistinian now that Newt has called it quits. Fun times.
