For the fifth straight survey, the GOP field has a new frontrunner in Iowa.
It’s ridiculous that Paul has that following!
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, Over?
He had it in 2008 and look where that got him. He’s getting ready to do a money bomb tomorrow as well.
Fox and Friends of Mitt have done their job!!!
Gingrich didn’t lose his support, they just moved to the undecided column, and will return after considering the alternatives.
Romney is about where he has been all year, low 20’s
True to form, Romney holds steady at revolting 77% of the party.
OTOH. . .maybe Newt wants New Hampshire; more. (Historically, does not follow suit here; but one never knows; so would think most candidates simply, would want it all. )
Can only say; GO Newt!
Iowa picked GHW Bush over Reagan in 1980.. Dole over GHW Bush in 1988 and Huckabee in 2008.. kind of an irrelevant state in regards to picking the nominee
The fix is in...the media wants Romney so they are now tweaking numbers...they took out Bachman,Perry, and Cain. The only one left was Gingrich...I don’t know what they plan to do if Paul pulls in front...but I am sure they have a plan B.
I don’t put a lot of stock in these polls. Lots of people have dropped land lines. I think Iowa is wide open for all of the candidates.
Interesting to see if Rasmussen has stayed with “likely republican voters” or if he has switched to just “likely voters” or “registered voters”
Also good to see the margin of error and if it’s a statistical tie.
Iowa, if it chooses Mitt Romney, has handed him the presidency, because Mitt will win or go 2nd in New Hampshire and the entire media world, Fox included, will proclaim Mitt the winner of the nomination...
and the sheeple will follow.
If this keeps up; we will need a new Party ID. . .
Just as I predicted yesterday (and got flamed for). The attacks on Newt are slowly eroding his support and we are going to get stuck with Romney, who will win with 25% with the conservative vote split too many ways. I am an anybody but Mitt guy, and at this point, I’d be willing to throw my support behind Ron Paul if polls continue to show he has a chance (though I still hope Perry can get a 2nd chance).
It’s not like the Democrats need to vote for Obama in their primary so shenanigans are definitely at play. Now we know who they fear as being the front runner.
I believe you are right. The fix is in. It will be Romney whether we like it or not.
But then we knew that. Last time it was McCain’s turn because he got all huffy when Bush beat him. He was basically on the rocks and “voila” all at once he rises to the top.
People must be getting paid.
The major pimp Romney push has been on FOX since the last debate to try and get us to accept Romney.
They know people don’t like him.
Plan b is that no one has voted yet, backmann and santorum are still there, vote for them, they are the two conservatives.
