Romney opens lead in Santorum's backyard
Mitt Romney Leads In New Pennsylvania Poll ^ | 04/05/2012 | Doug Mataconis

Posted on 04/05/2012 6:49:16 AM PDT by Ocarterma

Two days after losing three more primaries, Rick Santorum appears to be in trouble in his home state:

Mitt Romney’s taken the lead in PPP’s newest poll of Rick Santorum’s home state of Pennsylvania. Romney has 42% to 37% for Santorum with Ron Paul at 9% and Newt Gingrich at 6%. The numbers represent a dramatic turnaround from when PPP polled the state a month ago. Romney’s gained 17 points, going from 25% to 42%. Meanwhile Santorum’s dropped 6 points from 43% to 37%, for an overall swing of 23 points in the last four weeks.

You might want to wipe the oatmeal off your chin, Psycho man, and go out and do something for a change other than sit at your computer and attack Conservatives on this site.

It might do you some good to get a little fresh air.

“My” God? There’s only one. What are you, an atheist?

God is against baby-killing and those who enable it. He views homosexuality as an abomination. As desperately as I want Obama out, I can’t take that side.

Maybe none of the other candidates have the courage to call Obama what he is either. The point is is that if you're so sensitive to losing votes, you won't do more difficult things that require even more courage because they will lose even more votes. Recent examples are raising the debt ceiling and the payroll tax cut. Do you think Romney would have opposed the payroll tax cut or raising the debt ceiling? Maybe the others wouldn't either, but I'm sure Romney wouldn't have. He goes with the flow and avoids appearing extreme at all cost.

I agree and I am more than ready to start a real TEA Party. I'd rather seize control of the gop but it is looking like that organization is so infected that the only cure is to burn it out.

Rhetoric is style, not substance, and challengers don't pass legislation with their rhetoric. Elections are about winning votes, and the rhetoric you use during a campaign should be designed to do that. No purpose is served in losing votes due to rhetoric.

But passing legislation is completely different, because even if it costs you votes, you've managed to achieve something.

Look at Obama. He ran and won by mouthing vague platitudes so as not to offend anyone, and actually conned some Republicans into thinking he was just this moderate guy. But then when he got into office, he managed to pass a lot of substantive legislation and regulation that angered a lot of people.

The fact is that such a strategy works.

MM, i have volunteered to computer call for Santorum. I won’t life a finger to help out Toomey next time he is up...he was almost giddy in his endorsement of Obamney.

This is going to get ugly here in PA after Easter. No real or even imaginary support for Mittens...just party regs who will show up; my guess primary will be in the 30s voter wise. I wish we still had “statesman”’(newt?!?) who will put principle over party. I pray i get surprised.

You have to do what it is that you think is correct. I used to reason the way that you do and I gave FReepers hell for not voting for mccain but I have been an activist for decades and I have given way more money and time to the republicans than I should have and way more than they deserved.

I have been a hated commodity of the gop/e the entire time. The gop/e hates Conservatives and especially Social Conservatives. Rush has confirmed this fact on many occasions. I will no longer be a sheeple for their agenda. The gop/e have so distorted this primary process and so corruptly manufactured open primary states and played fast and loose with the Elector process and conspired with the Secretaries of State in several states to keep competition off the ballot and to protect romney... that I refuse to reward their treason with my vote for THEIR choice of candidate.

It is not that I will not vote for romney... I cannot vote for romney. The man is evil... he is a baby killer... he is a gun grabber... he is a socialist liar and as far as the justices that he will nominate... I look at the crap he put on the bench when he was governor. When asked why he only appointed 4 republicans during his tenure... he stated that he had to nominate judges that the dims would approve of... and he will do exactly the same as President. Is he better than obama... well anyone would be but we are talking .020 of an inch difference and not feet. We also have to stop supporting those leftists in the republicon machine that keep stealing our primary elections with their corruption. We either seize the republican party and revamp it or create a new party and destroy the republicans... either way... the days of "business as usual" are over for many of us.

And Obama is still perceived as a moderate because no one will say “socialist”. Now we have 3 years of experience to base the accusation on, and they still can't say it. And people on the Right criticize Obama because he won't use “war on terror”, but prefers “man caused disaster”. I really wonder if there is much light between these parties anymore. Anyway, I appreciate your calm reasoned argument. We'll get to see who's right.

You really think so? I think there is a bunch of buyer's remorse out there by swing voters who voted for him in 2008. I only hope our nominee is able to take advantage of that.

Maybe this is the difference. I don't think Obama has been a moderate at all. And I think the best way for a Republican to regain those swing votes and win is to stake out a rhetorically moderate position, while pointing out all the wacky things Obama has done.

Again, I have my doubts about Romney. But rheteorically, on capitalism, free markets, etc. he's been right on the money in this primary.

Just because a Conservative does due diligence and researches a candidate, in this case Richard J. Santorum, and discovers that said candidate is a pathological liar, a thief, and a hypocrite it doesn’t translate that same Conservative would support another candidate who is, in fact, a Fascist (Romney).

You, and a host of others, have not adequately researched Santorum. Instead you’re using Alinsky tactics to tear down another Freeper who has done so.

Shame!

Let’s be sure to stay in touch and put the Tea Party’s feet to the fire. This is where the Conservative movement’s strength is supposed to lie. If they wuss out, then we can start our own Conservative, Constitutional Reaganesque party. WE THE PEOPLE are still out here!

Maybe we can call it. THE SHINING CITY ON A HILL PARTY.

Wow. Maybe I need to brush up on my definition of "hate", when I look at the things that people are saying about Rick Santorum: things like (just on this thread alone) hypocrite, insane obsession, stubborn, arrogant and unreasonable, his ridiculous belief, pathological liar, and thief.

Maybe I'm wrong, but, if people were saying things like that about me, I would assume that they didn't like me very much.

P.S. Thanks, Mountain Mary, for working for Rick!

"If you believe you can live with four more of this Destroyer of the American Republic, Barack Hussein Obama, God be with you!!!

Well, that's the thing. I can't live with four more years of Obama. But I also can't cast a vote for everything that God sees as evil. That would be an act of rebellion against God, IMO.

"But.....please, no remorse or regrets when Dictator Obama steals your freedom, your liberty, your opportunity, your country from you, your family, your loved ones, as he surely will when you allow him to be re-elected!!! Have a great day!!!"

The only way I will be "allowing" Obama's re-election is if Obama wins by one vote, and that's not going to happen. The blame for the upcoming loss will lay at the feet of the GOP and the fools who supported Romney in the primaries. They're the ones who gave us the worst possible candidate anyone could dream up, and I am NOT going to accept any of the blame for that.

Thank you Sun. I knew that the imposters on this site who have been saying that Rick is disliked in Pa. weren’t telling the truth. I know folks from Pa. who have a great deal of respect for the whole Santorum family.

What I think is that the pseudo Myth lovers who have tried to take over here and bully everyone...are former Newties who are so bitter that their guy crashed and burned..that they have come over to Myth’s cult to avenge ..er someone.
Very intelligent Mitties!!!

Don’t believe the polls. They are being driven by those who are trying to shut Rick down. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

I agree with everything you say, C of A.

We who have decided on principle that we will not vote for Mittens need to keep reciting our points in response to those who get in our faces about it. And since when is my vote anyone else’ business?
It’s gonna be a long election season and from the looks of it, a bitter one too.

I’m already at odds with Rino friends who always said they were Conservative but are now embracing Willard as though he were the second coming of Christ.

These same people don’t have a clue what it means to be a Constitutional Conservative.
Mark Levin is so comforting right now. But he does say he’ll stump for Mittens if need be..and I hope he changes his mind on that.

Losing your home state in a presidential primary is tantamount to ending your political career.

That is where Santorum is heading.

It's too bad that conservatives couldn't unite behind someone who could actually debate 0bama and win.

To me, one of the strongest signs that Santorum is not really conservative was his absurd vote against right to work. There's simply no excuse for it, union state or not.

Anyone who can't support right to work is simply not a conservative. Such a vote represents a total betrayal of conservative principals on labor.

We'll have to wait and see what the GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, has to say about the issue during the general election cycle.

The “shame” is acquiescing to GOPe who have preselected our losing RINO candidate. Santorum, warts and all, is the LAST man standing against Obamney 2.0.

The “original” (Version 1.0) will push us into outright socialism by the end of his fifth year in office; Version 2.0 will slow the pace towards socialism a tad, but just like 1.0 will give us Gay marriage; no restrictions on abortions; liberal jurists “who the Dems will approve!” and of course his signature “ObamneyCare.”

No thanks...

To: Mountain Mary; PSYCHO-FREEP
Attackers? For pointing out that you and others should do research on Rick Santorum?

Looking at only a few aspects of a candidate will get you a nightmare of a Presidency.

Rick Santorum/Jimmy Carter both are deeply religious men, married to the same woman for decades with nice families. Both men are social conservatives. Neither man is a fiscal conservative. Both have been political failures and for the same reasons: neither one was good at their elected job.

Republicans voted for Jimmy Carter because he wasn't Gerald Ford! Wow, was that ever stupid.

There is seven more months until the election in November.

A very great deal can happen politically in seven months. In politics that is a life time. I don't support Romney but other than repeatedly posting threads about his Fascist positions, there isn't much to say because he is two-dimensional and without depth, a phony.

Romney has made it known that Santorum is unacceptable as a running mate. Same towards Gingrich. This is an intended shutout of Conservatives because the Globalists, the elites of the Republican Party, don't give a damn about our God-given rights. The last thing they want is to be associated with people who cling to guns and bibles and believe in the U.S.Constitution.

This is huge, Mary, absolutely huge. Ashamed of myself? Not bloody likely. I feel like the town crier, trying to get people to wake-up and realize we're going to lose this nation and Santorum’s past record proves he isn't the solution.

Newt Gingrich is the only candidate who has actually changed government. He allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority which directly led to the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.

Under a Republican president, George W. Bush, the Republican Congress, which included Rick Santorum, added over $3 trillion to the federal deficit, shunned conservative policy in favor of Beltway influence-peddling, and so damaged the GOP brand that we lost the majority Gingrich had worked years to forge.

How much should I really care that Newt’s fabulous colleagues think his reemergence would be a disaster for Republicans? Santorum supporters must remember that the elections of 2010 was not a merit promotion; the Republicans were the only alternative in town.

If you neither trust nor like Newt Gingrich, so what. That's your opinion, and the fact you keep dragging old crap out that reads as though a talking point list from the Democratic Party, tells me nothing will convince you otherwise.

The Democrats want either Romney or Santorum as they can be steamrolled.

Gingrich eats Democrats for lunch.

I will be totally honest with you... I think that this has been the weakest and most lame slate of candidates the gop has ever fielded... Newt and Santorum were both flawed and have history that would normally stop me from voting for either man for dog catcher. I am not looking for perfection but I could vote for Newt or Rick. romney is so much worse... so far to the left that it is awful that he calls himself a republican... and he is a gun grabbing, baby killing, gay marriage promoting socialist liar. He will never see my vote.

I live in Mississippi so my State will go for the republican without a doubt. I will vote down ballot for every Conservative running for office but romney... I would no more vote for that pos than I would any dim... by his own admission to Judy Woodruff in 2001... he is a dim in every way but party registration. You Tube has the video if you would like to see it.

Santorum is up only 1.7 points on a national average. In his home state, where he was recently up by 15 points on the average. He is trending down and has been over the last 2 weeks.

If Santorum does not win PA by a considerable margin, even if it is close, it is game over. (By all realistic terms, it already is over whether you like it or not.)

Don't blame me, blame your candidate and the real world. Reality does not chose sides. It is what it is, so deal with it.

There are alot of people who do like him, and know that he’d make a fine president.

Pennsylvanians have been used by the Democrats for years. They were the ones who turned PA voters against Rick, who has high ratings from Conservative groups.

So what do they think of Romney? Since PA is blue, they love Obama, and would like Romney.

Oh, you'll get no argument from me. I agree completely, though 2008 wasn't very strong either. But to paraphrase Don Rumsfeld, you fight with the army you have.

Every candidate, including Romney, has weaknesses. The very fact that Santorum came to this level after everyone said he couldn’t win one state, makes a big statement. There are alot of states yet to vote. The race isn’t even half over.

Don’t fall for the “he can’t win” line.

Go Rick!

Stand with a real Conservative. Go Rick!

I will not pull the lever for the abortionist/socialist big government RINO Romney. And I don’t care who he selects as a running mate.

I agree.

I'm not trying to be tunnel-visioned, or intractably stubborn, or "taking my toys and going home". It's just that, over the past forty years, the trend has not been good. This is especially true for social conservatives, of whom the establishment demands their votes, but not their values; of whom they try to instill fear by warning that the other options are worse; or who delight in telling us that we have nowhere else to go.

Well, we no longer fear. The warned-against liberalism is now in our own party. We have been played.

I stated in an earlier post on another thread that, although I am one of the longest term Santorum supporters on this site (perhaps the longest term supporter), that I will not vote for Romney even if Santorum is his VP pick.

The handbasket is headed for the cesspool at the bottom of the slippery slope, and Democrats and Republicans alike are taking turns driving. Some are already hip deep in the cesspool at the bottom of the slope saying, "You know, it really doesn't smell that bad after all."

I may be drug into the cesspool, but I will not willingly jump in. I will sell my soul for a reduction in marginal tax rates, or any other 30 pieces of silver.

I will not vote for Mitt Romney.

He is taking a break for EASTER. Can you imagine him or any candidate stumping on Easter?

Oops. That should be "I will not sell my soul for a reduction in marginal tax rates, or any other 30 pieces of silver."

Not though all the stars fall from the heavens and all the mountains dissolve into the sea. Never.

Never.
