Gingrich 37%, Romney 22% Among GOP Voters Nationwide
Edited on Tue Dec-06-11 01:15 PM by brooklynite
Source: Gallup

PRINCETON, NJ -- Newt Gingrich leads Mitt Romney 37% to 22% in Gallup's inaugural Daily tracking of Republican registered voters' preferences for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, with all other candidates in the single digits.

Gingrich 37%
Romney 27%
Paul 8%
Perry 7%
Bachmann 6%
Santorum 3%
Huntsman 1%
Cain --

Gallup Daily tracking of the race for the GOP nomination began Dec. 1, and will be reported each day at 1 p.m. Eastern on the basis of a five-day rolling average of at least 1,000 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who are registered to vote. The current results are based on 1,277 Republican registered voters nationwide interviewed Dec. 1-5.

This initial Daily report confirms that the Republican race has shifted once again, with former Speaker of the House Gingrich this time rising to the top of the GOP list. This is the latest in a series of front-runner changes that have marked the Republican nomination battle as one of the more volatile in the recent history of presidential politics. At various points since the field largely took its current shape in August when Rick Perry entered the race, Gallup polls have shown Perry, Cain, Romney, and now Gingrich as the leader or tied for the lead for the Republican nomination. Earlier this year and late last year, Gallup polls showed Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump, and Sarah Palin -- all of whom eventually declined to run -- leading or tied for the lead.

The GOOD news for Mittens is that he'll probably pick up all of Huntsman's voters when he finally drops out...

1. GOP voters: Let's face it, Romney is cooked with numbers like this
GOP voters are either very stupid, or with short memories, or just have a sense of mission to put up the most pugnacious blathering bobble head they can find. And after Herman Cain's meteoric rise, I'm convinced it's a blathering bobble head that Republicans just love.


Let's face it, Romney is cooked with numbers like this. Republican Party big wigs are in panic mode from now on.

2. As smarmy as Mitt may be, I will forever have a visceral reaction to Newt...
What a detestable waste of protoplasm he is... Rethugs never seem to learn, do they? :eyes:

3. As far as polls go, I trust Gallup just a hair over Assmussen.
And what's going to happen to the GOP faithful when Newt flames out spectacularly (like all the rest they loved for a day, a week of a month)?

As nasty as they are in person, they sure do fall in love easily.

9. Their candidate would be their weapon against Obama, "Obamacare" and Democrats in general.
They seem to have little problem falling in love with weapons.

5. If everyone except Newt and Romney dropped out, I think Newt gets most of the votes.
The pro-business, social moderate segment is already in Romney's corner. He probably gets some of Paul's and all of Huntsmens...maybe 5%. The rest of the vote gets pushed to Newt, I think. Today's Republican Party appears to be comprised of 30% who fit the traditional definition of a Republican voter...the rest appear to be an amalgam of single issue, low information voters who are anti-socialistic in their nature. If Newt becomes the Republican nominee, it will be interesting to see how Mitt's segment votes in the GE. Because I really can't see Mitt making it through the conservative Republican primary gauntlet.

6. I smell Jeb
After all, Jeb will ride into Tampa, his squire Marco "I can get all the Cubans to vote for me" Rubio, and offer to save the day.

10. Possibly. A few DUers have been saying all along that, one way or another, it will be Jebus.
Jeb can get Cubans to vote for him without Rubio, though. And they are not a huge democraphic in every state.

So, Jebus might pick someone else as his running mate. Possibly Romney or Huntsman in fact.

11. here is why I disagree
Romney and Huntsman= The GOP is refusing a Mormon, and also refusing anyone to the left of Rush Limbaugh. Yes, they do think of those two as leftists.

And yes, Jeb can get Cubans to vote for him without Rubio, but the whole point of a brokered convention to to secure a LOCK ON FLORIDA, and therefore, the nation. The GOP remembers the thuggery the Cubans did in 2000, causing outright Riots in Miami, and they know that trick will still work. The whole point of jeb being anointed to to ensure the lock.

7. Toot toot for Newt!
Well, that doesn't sound very presidential.
He'll probably go on a tour powered by beans.

:rofl:
