Rasmussen Reports first Republican primary survey in Mississippi shows former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney leading his closest competitors by eight points. A new statewide telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters in the Magnolia State shows Romney with 35% of the vote, while former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich each draw support from 27%. Texas Congressman Ron Paul runs last with six percent (6%). One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This Mississippi survey of 750 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted on March 8, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Rick Santorum campaigns on family values, but legislates to the unions and WITH the RINO Establishment, never doing anything for those family values in office when in a position to do so. Every. Single. Time. Check the record.
Newt started a revolution and brought the Republican Party and Congress into a majority after 40 years in the desert and has the record to prove it.
IF RECORDS still trump sniffing around one’s personal stuff while out of office or at home.
Wait until Romney resurrects Santorum’s wife’s personal business again, and Rick’s comment that he was a nominal Catholic up until his campaign.
It’s disgusting to ride a ballot with your nose in the air on false rightousness against candidates when the record of actual accomplishment is different as day from night.
Santorum, Gingrich, or Paul supporters aren't necessarily anti-Romney voters.
Many are just people that happen to like the given candidate, but don't consider Romney to be the embodiment of Satan (while very few people are enthusiastic about Romney, out in the real world, there aren't nearly as many people who despise him as FR would like to believe).
If Paul dropped out, probably 50-70% would switch to Romney, and 30-50% wouldn't vote.
If either Gingrich or Santorum dropped out I think you'd be shocked at how many of their supporters switched to Romney, or simply didn't vote.
Paul has never really been in the race to win. Only some of his most delusional followers actually think he could be nominated or elected President in 2012. Paul is attempting to build a movement over the long term - and he is having some success at it. I think the man is mostly a kook, but I will give him credit for having patience and persistence.
To add to your good posts.
Santo was not vetted in August, September, October, November, December, January, and half of February. Why would they vett Rick since he was once mired in polls @2% and behind RuuPaul? It hasn’t even been a full month of serious Ricky vetting, and Newt has been vetted up and down, sideways, and every other which way for a very long time.
Gingrich out means Romney in. Santorum doesn't have it. He's big gov't GOP-e and doesn't have fire, strength, or tenacity I want.
I want Sun Tzu leading my side - not pious sweater vest.
And likewise, what do I know? I am just a ignorant, drooling, rube that is too stupid to know that I owe my vote to the man that you are backing.
(As for the Suicide Bomb comment, check out Newt Supporter TitansAFC’s tagline. He’s the one that started the whole “suicide bomb” correleation)
TAFC’s Tag Line: (Rick Santorum is the Suicide Bomber of the 2012 Election. He’s going to take us all out with him)
Wait until Romney resurrects Santorums wifes personal business again, and Ricks comment that he was a nominal Catholic up until his campaign.
She was in her twenties and lived with or dated an abortion doctor. That is why she is so pro-life. She seen what she believed was wrong and wanted to spend the rest of her life doing the right thing. Isn’t that what we hope our kids do when they make a mistake? I know I did things in my twenties I regret. No I did not have an abortion, but I was a democrat who thought it was no big deal, until I became a Christian and God opened my eyes that what I believed was wrong, both about abortion and being a democrat.
I was a counselor at a Crisis Pregnancy Center for years. 75% of the women who volunteer at CPC’s are women who had an abortion and realized they were wrong. They want to tell women who are considering an abortion, “don’t do it, I did and I will have to live with it the rest of my life, it destroys you.”
If Ricks wife repented and Newt repented, why should either one not be forgiven? Look how old Newt was after his last affair?
Everybody knows Gromit is large and in charge!
Bishop Willard is attacking only Newt in Mississippi. Not Obama, who is effectively a policy clone, or Santorum, who is the Lhasa Apso in the pit.
Mitt is not LEADING in Mississippi.
Rasmussen has been notorious this cycle in overestimating Mitt’s numbers.
“If I were Gingrich, or his campaign manager, this would be my strategy:
Hit on three issues, constantly, over and over and over:
1) Gas prices, and energy production in general.
2) The debt and deficits.
3) Repealing ObamaCare.
Constantly. Every speech, every venue, every crowd. Blanket the airwaves with ads to these effect.”
Those are precisely the points he hit at the rally in Jackson yesterday, plus the fact that the US is not and should not be the enforcement arm of the UN.
“If Ricks wife repented and Newt repented, why should either one not be forgiven?”
Agreed. Lots of Xian Pharisees out there. Yes, the ‘Xian’ insult is deliberate, and is a distinction from Christian.
Mitt is not leading in MS or AL, period.
Rasmussen has been notoriously overstating Romney’s support this election cycle, and is doing so again.
Thank you for that. While I don’t completely agree with your conclusions, it is always good to see peoples reasoning.
What is your assessment of how would the picture change if either the speaker or the senator dropped out and took the VP slot?
Tag line shows my preference of which way around, of course!
Really, Mississippi... ROMNEY???
