You realize that this poll is nothing but bad news for Gingrich. I can’t believe someone blogged this and you posted it as if it were something good for Newt. PPP hasn’t polled Texas since January. In what may well be their final poll here, Willard is actually winning Texas by 10 points and winning the Tea Party vote in Texas by 44-38. Not long ago virtually no one thought Romney could even win a primary in Texas if he had any competition, and now he is beating Newt (who is supposed to be strongest in the South) here. Further, the last time this firm (Democratic firm PPP) polled Texas, Romney had 44/44 favorable/unfavorable - now his favorability is +43% at 66/23.

Well, in that I know you don’t like the architect of the 1994 Republican Revolution, and in that I know you are obsessed with following his threads nonetheless, I obviously posted it to make you feel better.
I read PPP’s spin on the numbers - which mirrors your take - and I disagree. Right now, the race has been declared “over” by everyone but a few bloggers, and voters have tended to follow suit, and resignedly threw their support to the establishment candidate, Romney.
And yet...a substantial minority of Republicans have refused to take orders from the elite, and have decided to vote their convictions, i.e., to vote for Newt. Granted, the close numbers in TX represent just a modest chance for Newt. He must win Delaware tonight, and win or “place” a close second in NC on May 8th. If that happens, Romney’s inevitability is again placed into question, and more voters will cast conviction votes for Newt, which should cause Gingrich to prevail in TX (a winner-take-all-delegates state.)
And then we’ll have a fun convention.
But all this is moot if Newt doesn’t win Delaware tonight.
The only reason you say that is because of 24/7 news has completely ignored Newt and Paul as an option and declared Romney the winner. And you fell for it. Too many like you believe that. If they were fair...fat chance of that happening...it would be at least flip-flop with Newt on top by 10. Only about 1/3 of the GOP electorate wants Romney...that means in the general only about 1/6 wants him...another 1/6 will vote straight ticket and GOP loses just like McCain cause no one wanted him either but got stuck with him because of people like you saying others like Rick, Paul, Rick P, Newt have no chance before the 3 largest states have even voted.
Oh blow it out your b*^t. Your posts are nothing but ‘it’s bad news for Newt’. Carry your maggot mittbot water somewhere else. Conservatives aren’t interested in your PRO HOMO baby killing LIBERAL POS candidate.
GO NEWT! Squash the maggot and all his evil ways! If not, barry will be serving maggot meat to the dogs.
