Newt needs to get the two Ricks to rally behind him.

If he can win SC, he’ll have big momentum going into Florida and could really knock Mitt down a peg or two.

I think the reports are real, how else can you explain everyone freaking out. Endorsements for Mitt are flying, and talking heads have their scripts and are pushing Romney hard and trashing Newt. Best of all Palin is putting the pressure on for Mitt to be more transparent. THE fight for our country is on, BIG TIME.

All a pipe dream. The fix is in. Romney will win it. John Bolton is just the beginning. Expect many other prominent Conservatives will follow. The sheep will then hit the polls and vote for Willard. Somehow the establishment crushed the conservative movement yet again.

“However, if Newt wins SC and goes into Florida with momentum. He could suddenly overtake Romneys small lead.”

That is exactly what is going to happen.

Conservatives are going to tell the Establishment to go screw themselves and support Gingrich. Santorum is fading and will lose support fast...all to Gingrich...Perry’s support will drain off to Gingrich also.

That Yankee slit from Romney aint flyin in South Carolina...and if I were Haley, I’d start building a warchest because she will have a challenge in 14.

Go Newt !!

I’m a huge Newt fan, but isn’t guy behind “Insider Advantage” an ex-Newt guy? Hope it’s true, but I’m skeptical.

If Mitt Romney wins the nomination.... it will be the death of the Tea Party.

I’ve got to say, with the country in the deep sh*t it’s in, thanks to “Bath-House Barry”, we need a bomb thrower (Nancy Pelousy called Gingrich this); someone who knows history of the United States, someone who knows how Washington works—I love Santorum, but we need a bomb thrower to take the helm when things will be at their worst in this country; and remember——Newt’s mom called Hillary a bitch when she did the “off the record” interview with Connie Chung that wasn’t off the record. Anyone with a mom tuned into the bitchiness of a Clinton has my support.

rick P knew after Iowa he should get out - he went home with that in mind.

Did he get a call from mittens with an offer he can’t refuse - a plumb appointment - a hint at the VP slot - to stay in as a spoiler?

Both he and Huntsman can only serve now to assure the vote for Romney.

Where the he*l is the Republican party on this? OH WAIT! They’re probably the ones encouraging the spoilers to stay in - to protect their Prince Mittens.

BTW - Why wouldn't this make a killer ad?

Mitt Romney vows to abolish Obama Care. Why? Because, he says, it should be done a state level. That's slick. Remember, the pride and joy of his term as Governor was signing RomneyCare into law as his Comrades looked on - and a happy time was had by all.

You want ObamaCare? Vote Mitt

Santorum is already fading, he’s going nowhere in the South.

Gingrich will siphon enough of Santis supporters and undecideds to win a close one in SC and then he will route Romney in Florida, which is a closed primary.

Romney is dead meat, he’ll get Establishment hacks, but most will vote conservative...and they will adjust to having too many conservatives election a RINO Yankee.

Poll: Gingrich Surging in South Carolina

The poll of 726 registered voters was completed Wednesday night and offered the following results:

“we need a bomb thrower”

Obama is seeking to spend a billion dollars trashing whoever is the nominee.

Romney fits super rich, fat cat stereotype perfectly. He even made his money off of the “evil” Wall Street. It doesn’t matter how wrong this idea is. It is a narrative that will stick.

Who is best suited to endure the fire storm of media attacks?

We need a candidate that just doesn’t resemble our friends and family — a nice guy who did some good in the Senate. We need someone with thick skin, able to take the heat and give it back. Someone they can’t say is dumb. Someone they can’t say is inexperienced. Someone who isn’t worth 190 million dollars and has four super mansions.

If not Newt, who?

All I know is I’d hate to turn on the tv on Sat the 21st at around 9PM or so and see Romney 31 Newt 26 Santorum 24 Perry 6(or some variation thereof where Romney wins with between 30-35%)and the other 3 total 50% or more.

And there’s a good chance of that happening.

I’d suggest to wait until a few days before the primary and if the polls show either Newt or Snatorum with the clear best chance to win, the other 2(Perry included) both drop out and endorse him and basically ensure he wins. The winner would have great momentum going into FL and would finally have the 1 on 1 against Romney.

The winner could promise the other guy a cabinet spot at the least and possibly VP. Foreign Policy seems to be a big thing for Santorum. Maybe Newt’s secretary of state. Or vice versa.

But I don’t know if all three of them running helps. I think we need to have one clear alternative.

We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by television, blog, and debate, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of American politics. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all lies, victory, however long and hard the road may be.

Go Newt!!

If Romney’s down to 23, then we can push him down even more, like the recent poll in NC, with him in third.

25-24-20-14

would really drive the point home. If he were still at 31, I would agree with you. But 23 is a different story.

I think we can get both of them up over Romney in SC the way the wind is blowing.

Very true. Unfortunately, there are those who agree but are pissed that Gingrich is putting Romney's feet to the fire. They want another wishy-washy, reach across the aisle Bob Dole type candidate, instead of a fighter.

After all the incessent "Noot" bashing by the MSM, democrats and FReepers, I'm glad Gingrich finally took the gloves off. Gingrich will take it to Obama:

I’m glad that Newt is within striking distance of Willard
the liberal but the last time this poll was taken he was
at 31% to Willard’s 19. This was three weeks ago. But overall a good sign for Gingrich. The bad news in the poll
is flake Ron Paul is gaining. He went from 7% to 13%. I still don’t think the old man does much in SC.

I think that Newt can pull it off in the Palmetto State.

Perry is nothing but a spoiler and Willard’s BFF at this point in time.

Take Perry out and Newt leads or ties Willard NOW.

Given Romney’s penchant for proxies and pawns, love the irony that it appears Huntsman is dragging Romney down.

From the article:

"The poll of 726 registered voters was completed Wednesday night and offered the following results:"

The only thing in my mind was and is reposting TitansAFC thread, which was pulled because he put it into breaking news.

"it was posted yesterday" --- Yesterday, as it Tuesday...or yesterday, as in Wednesday?

"no surge except in your own mind."

I'm not claiming a surge; neither did I take the survey/poll.

I reposted TitansAFC pulled thread, which is based on a news article. The article stands or falls on the facts and the accuracy of the survey/poll.

The article says the survey/poll was completed Wednesday night.

Instead of trying to divine my mind, it would help if you backed up your claim with a url citation so we can all see what you saw on Tuesday.
