Rasmussen poll puts Gingrich up by 7 nationally (Newt-35, Mitt-28, Santorum-16, Paul-10)
Hot Air ^ | 1/24/2012 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 01/24/2012 12:00:23 PM PST by TBBT

Rasmussen conducted a national poll of 1,000 likely Republican primary voters yesterday, and it confirmed what Gallup’s tracking poll also shows — Newt Gingrich’s second boomlet is for real. In the Rasmussen poll, Gingrich has vaulted to a seven-point lead as Romney settles back into the mid-20s:

After his game-changing win in South Carolina, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich continues to ride his surge to the front of the pack among likely Republican primary voters nationwide. He now leads Mitt Romney by seven points.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters shows Gingrich with 35% of the vote, representing an eight-point increase in support from last week. Former Massachusetts Governor Romney now draws 28%. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum’s support is little changed at 16%, while Texas Congressman Ron Paul picks up 10%. …

I don’t think last night’s debate will change much, given that the whole affair was a wash.

As someone else concisely put it, nothing happened = Newt wins.

The RNC called my fiancee’ on his cell Sunday. He told them they had reached Newt central. All donations going to Gingrich. The line went click.

When Santorum drops out and endorses Newt, Mittens will be history.

Gingrich/Santorum 2012.

Romeny better trot carefully starting about now with his bulldog attacks on Newt. It’s at a point now where further vicious attacking is just pure destructiveness of the GOP.
OTOH, I think he is into and enjoying scorched earth campaigning.

Interesting tidbit:

“It is worth noting that 41% of GOP voters nationwide are certain of their vote at this time, but 50% could still change their mind between now and their primary. Santorum’s supporters are the most likely to say they could still change their minds at some point.”

Santorum voters are probably already looking ahead to him leaving the race.

I'm for Newt but these national polls don't mean squat.

That said, I'd rather them be in our favor, but right now Florida is the only one that counts.

The cnn debate this Thursday will be raucous and since Newt has said the audience will be a part of it, you can bet, they will be.

I don't know which cnn worm is the moderator, but if it's that little weasel, woffy, he is probably coming down with the flu.

Gloria burger will be the fill in with help from david gargle, and the snake will offer commentary.

I doubt Santorum is going anywhere anytime soon. The GOP Establishment is pumping him up so he can continue to siphon votes away from Newt.

It has to become a race for second between romney and santorum or romney and kookpaul if santorum is out.

Newt neets an overwhelming lead. He just does not have the money that romney has. The scorched earth negative adds by “romney supporters” are out in full force panic mode.

I had no idea that 28 per cent of Republicans were either Mormon or worked for Bain capital or worked for the social welfare state or were officials in the Republican Party which evidently is an entity of the social welfare state.

I wouldn’t want Santorum as Newt’s VP. Debating on facts is one thing - but he want over the line and now I consider him a liar. I have no use for liars. And I wouldn’t be surprised if he backs Mitt - that is if his ego allows him to step down and take off his halo.

Newt will definitely win as my Newt coffee cup and bumper sticker came and I’m drinking coffee with Newt right now.

I’ll use this cup for drinking anything until he wins the nomination and that’s a sure cosmic reason why he will win as I’m sure these cups are magic.

Romney is absolutely deflating and is furious. Guy has been running six years nonstop.
He is anti-life
He raised Taxes
He rubber stamped all Democratic legislation in MA
He is “better than Ted Kennedy” on Gay agenda
Romney is #whiteObama

I would bet a lot of money that Santorum endorses Myth. He’s been REALLY nasty about Newt - not nearly so much as far as Myth goes. He knows if he endorses Romney his stock will go up within the GOP establishment for 4 or 8 years from now.

I think if polls showed a Newt/Sarah ticket would make it 52/48, then I think she would 'volunteer' for the good of the country. She knows how serious this election is. . .

Wish Newt had Santorum’s majority. That would terrify the Establishment, but they do recognize that number is likely coming to Newt and knowing that is causing a scramble to dump Romney and try to hustle another. Desperate.
