Skip to comments.Romney’s negative ratings soaring among independents (Mitt Proving He's Unelectable)
Posted on 01/28/2012 7:28:40 AM PST by TitansAFC
Ive got a new partisan breakdown of some numbers from the new NBC/WSJ poll, and heres the verdict: Romneys unfavorability rating among independents has spiked 20 points in the last two months.
The poll found that among overall Americans, Romney is rated very or somewhat positively by 31 percent, while hes rated very or somewhat negatively by 36 percent............
In November, Romney was rated somewhat or very negatively by 22 percent of independents.
In December, Romney was rated somewhat or very negatively by 29 percent of independents.
And in the new poll, Romney was rated somewhat or very negatively by 42 percent of independents 20 points higher than two months ago.
Also: In November, Romney was beating Obama 47-34 among those voters. Now the numbers are upside down: Obama is beating Romney 44-36.
(A recent Post/ABC News poll also found Romneys negative rating among independent had jumped to 51 percent.)...........
Romneys lack of connection with average people and Obamas improving numbers on the economy account for the turnaround with independents, Hart said.
Its not as though they have said Bain has disqualified him or that he cant be trusted because of his taxes but this has created a gulf between him and the average voter, Hart said. Bain and the taxes just reinforce the sense that this person is in a different world. If youre an independent voter not driven by partisanship, you read all the other tea leaves to decide who is going to fight your fight.
When he was only the opponent of Obama, he was getting the independent vote as the alternative, Hart says. Now they see him in full relief, and theyre saying, `This isnt my guy.

By sprinkling magical fairy dust on it, of course.
We need to bleed this SOB dry from now until the convention. Make him pay dearly for every vote and leave him penniless and unelectable for the general election. You want to play hard ball Mittco? We can do that.
The early voting started last Saturday. Saturday’s polls showed Gingrich blowing far ahead of Romney and the story was how Newt took on the media and crushed them. The polls in Florida shifted overnight and Newt was suddenly in the lead by 8. The point is - this is the most recent thought in everybody’s mind who voted from Saturday to at least Wednesday, when the Romney carpetbombing machine kicked in again.
Nobody can really know what the early vote tally looks like because the polling has been so volatile. What we do know is that Newt had an overwhelming surge last week that carried into the Florida race. Now, Santorum has left, and Newt has the entire remaining 4 days to convince conservatives that we can win. The polls will tighten by Monday. Santorum’s early exit was a tacit concession. Look who he aimed both barrels at on Thursday.
Newt won with women in SC, and the wild swing the media is pushing over the last week is either a distraction, or a sign that voters still are moving. Watch Newt’s interview last night with Greta. You will see a very calm, assured Newt who has internal polls that show him within reach. His campaign path is simply fishing where the fish are. I think he can very well win this!
“I dont know if the United States can survive a second Obama term.”
Obama or Romney....we get one.
He won women in South Carolina, married women as well.
Actually, Greta did very good interview of Newt on FNC last night. And it definitely didn't put Newt in a bad light, in fact he looked and sounded like our next POTUS.
From the article at WP:
"..The poll found that among overall Americans, Romney is rated very or somewhat positively by 31 percent, while hes rated very or somewhat negatively by 36 percent..."
Newt is rated very or somewhat positively by 26 percent. Newt is rated very or somewhat negatively by 38 percent.
Sorry, Newt has worse numbers. Anything you read from an operator like that is bound to be filled with lies and omissions.
This is what Democrats have known even before the days of McLame’s contest with Mitt. Obama wants nothing less than to run against Mitt. He wants this because he knows he will win if he’s the GOP nominee.
Equally bad is that Democrats AND the MSM in collusion have succeeded in keeping elitist GOP sympathizers into believing that only a moderat GOP candidate can beat Obama. These are the same elitists, from Fox to Washington Times, to NRO to Coulter to Drudge (yes, I agree now), to every other loser sychopant supposedly-conservative pundit or functionary that walks (or wheels) the streets of our cities.
So, what’s to do? With Mitt you get Obama Lite and collusion with the elitist poweratti from both parties. With Newt, we’ll get drama - but we’ll be able to stop Obama. We’ll just have to stand fast and blast President Newt each time he tries to backslide for amnesty. Controlled borders - yes, amnesty for any illegal - NO. So, vote for Newt despite the attacks. Welcome the attacks, accept them, diffuse them early, call it OLD news in August and September and give him money if he’s still in it by April.
They said the same thing before South Carolina......wasn't true then, it's not true now.
Don't believe the scare tactics.
“Sorry, Newt has worse numbers. Anything you read from an operator like that is bound to be filled with lies and omissions.”
As long as you hold the same opinon when you see a poll that shows good news for Newt and bad for Romney, I have no argument.
I hope you are wrong. I fear you are right.
The point in the article is that the Establishment is NOT "most of the GOP".
I believe that the RINOCRATS will force this liberal sack of crap on us.
No, they won’t.
NBC Nightlys lead story was that women would reject Newt 2 to 1. If true, this is a worrisome statistic.
Never ask the left what they think of a conservative. Remember “a million back alley abortions” was the reason for Roe vs. Wade? Totally made up lie.
Turth be damned,
Truth is what you can get folks to believe.
Media does a great job for oboingo.
He needs to remind them of this, too:
Of all the candidates, Newt is a Tea Partier from way back! --1994--
House Minority Whip Gingrich and 7th District congressional candidate Brenda Fitzgerald throw mock tea crates into the Chattahoochee River on April 15, 1994, as part of a "Taxpayer's Tea party" in Roswell, Georgia.
TAX DAY 1994 - Politicians play with ire - Gingrich , others stage stunts touting frugality
The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution - Saturday, April 16, 1994
Author: ALEXANDER, KATHEY, Kathey Alexander STAFF WRITER: STAFF
As procrastinators put the finishing touches on their tax returns Friday, politicians across the nation carried out carefully crafted stunts aimed at landing the votes of irate taxpayers.
In Roswell, U.S. House Minority Whip Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) touted fiscal conservatism by staging a mock tea party on the banks of the Chattahoochee River . Conservative Republicans tossed empty produce crates into the river in symbolic re-enactment of the incident in Boston 221 years ago when colonists dressed as Indians dumped tea into the harbor in rebellion against the government.
More than 200 similar rallies occurred throughout the country, including Boston, San Francisco and Detroit , as candidates used the tax filing deadline as a forum for one-upsmanship on frugality.
Americans literally work every day for months just to pay for a government that wastes their money, said Gingrich , who is seeking re-election from the 6th district. On the day taxes are due, we should remind you that you have every right as a citizen to protect yourself, your family and your wallet with your vote.
Wpman here who will vote for Newt, but will NOT vote for Mitt.
GOP “establishment” = Classmates of the DNC.
They’re the same (low) class of whore, just trolling different sides of the same street.
They can all eat sh*t and die!
