"...Tennessee looking...more competitive. Santorum still up but Mitt and Newt within about 5-7 pts"
Public Policy Polling (via Twitter) ^ | 3/3/12 | Public Policy Polling

Posted on 03/03/2012 1:49:16 PM PST by BCrago66

Public Policy Polling is polling 3 Republican Primary states with weekend: Tennessee, Georgia, and Ohio. (I know, it's a Democratic firm, but I doubt that bias expresses itself when it's a Republican v. Republican race.) According to the tweets, Newt is not doing great in Ohio, polling at around 15%. However:

1) Newt's moving up to challenge Santorum in Tennessee:

"Surprise of the day- Tennessee looking much more competitive. Santorum still up but Mitt and Newt within about 5-7 pts"

2) PPP confirms Newt's big lead in Georgia, and also finds that Santorum is fading to 3rd place in that State:

"Newt up big in Georgia. Kinda wish we'd polled Oklahoma instead. Romney with a healthy lead for 2nd over Santorum so far"

So this news - plus the latest Gallup national poll which places Newt within 5 of Santorum - appears to confirm the trend of Newt rising, and Santorum fading. Let's do all we can to accelerate this trend, so that Newt, and not Romney, is the ultimate beneficiary.

Your neighbor state voter will note vote for either of the two Yankee lawyers.

My vote goes to Newt Gingrich only.

Got a NEWT bashing robo call this morning from RICK SANTORUMs bunch. VERY NASTY NEGATIVE.

Not a nice thing to do little RICKY.

GO NEWT GINGRICH to the winners circle.

Newt will have my vote this Tuesday! I've gotten several robo-calls and one from the one and only Newt Gingrich. I was thrilled. I received another against Rick Santorum and I forget the third one. Oh, if only I could vote more than once, like the Democrats do....LOL!

GO, NEWT, GO!!

Can someone satisfy my curiousity here?

I recall that Gov. Perry picked up a couple of delegates before he withdrew. If they were solid delegates, (I don’t know that they were) what happens to their vote in the first round of the convention?
Do they have to vote Perry, or can they, as he withdrew and threw his support to Speaker Gingrich do likewise?
