Gingrich leads Romney among men 38% to 25%, followed by Paul with 21%. Among women, Gingrich leads Romney 42% to 26%, followed by Paul with 16%, and Santorum with 13%.
The trend to Gingrich continues, with women leading the way. In the January 17-18 survey, Gingrich was leading Romney 29% to 28% among women, in this survey Gingrich leads Romney 42% to 26% among women. Gingrich has become the anti-Romney among women and that is driving his total share up. The debate on Thursday and his ex-wife problem did not slow the trend.
Women for Newt?
IMO if this keeps up, you can forget about a Brokered Convention.
Wow. That would be beautiful if Newt gets put over the top at +10% or more.
Get out there and vote SC. The bigger winning margin Newt gets, the more his momentum going into FL. :)
So much for the women hate newt meme...LOL.
That was, to barrow a word “unexpected” haha
+ or - margine won’t help Milt on that kind of lead.
During one of the debates Paul was asked about his superpac being funded by George Soro’s; he skipped the question and never answered.For they’re to be hot air balloons and signs every where it sure seems he is funded by Soros.Independents will wake up and dump Paul for this.
Romney is a stuttering weak candidate that needs too step down. Rove and the GOP can KMA.
It will be quite humorous if Ron Paul places and Mitt ends up 3rd. I’ll have a real laugh if that happens.
+/-4 MOE, it will be interesting if Gingrich actually wins by double digits; that’s a big, rangy gap anywhere from 22% to 6%. And the polling was done Jan. 19-20, right through the middle of the soap opera. The RCP Composite has had a (rare) streak where their ‘smoothing’ of trends has actually been playable, but the inherit lag in composites may hurt them this time with Gingrich just +2% in SC.
Instead of bashing Newt, he should be plying for Secy. HHS. He's be good there.
Pretty impressive turnaround. I hope Mitt and his supporters are truly feeling the pain.
Thier,... Fixed it :-)
What a wonderful thing to behold if this is true. The people actually deciding for themselves. Ignoring the msm blatant attempts to discredit Newt. Ignoring the Washington elite Republican RINO establishment trying to pick a candidate for us. Just looking at and hearing the candidates themselves and making the choice. Conservatism wins every time. I am getting ready to make a donation to Newt for the Florida primary. GO NEWT GO!
If Paul is funded by Soros, a 3rd term run by him is almost a certainty.
Well, there are no “brokers” anymore, so that was never gonna happen anyway. But hopefully none of ‘em will have a clear-cut majority going into the convention, so that delegates will feel free to throw their support behind someone else entirely.
America will feel the pain when Obama beats Newt. No way Newt beats Obama.
Gingrich leads Romney among men 38% to 25%, Among women, Gingrich leads Romney 42% to 26%,**
Is Willard crying in his Mormon-aid yet?
Ron Paul is dangerous.
Ron Paul, Soros and Defense
Before everyone gets their panties in a wad. Obama is already starting to make the moves to destroy our military.
Ron Paul will just drive the knife into their backs.
I thought it was clever how the Obama military haters are going to cut Benefits for veterans and wounded soldiers.
Wonder how far enlistment will drop on that one.
One of Ron Pauls best friends is George Soros..
>Conservatism wins every time.
How is it conservative to vote for a three times married man who supported cap and trade, profited from Fannie/Freddie, and is pro amnesty?
South Carolina is Santorum’s “hail Mary” play.
He’s attempting the only logical winning approach, though he knows it won’t work. It’s all or nothing now.
When it doesn’t, he’ll be left with endorsing Newt to try to salvage an administration position.
Santorum has just this primary, then he’s out. It makes sense for him to try one last swing for the bleachers.
You make me laugh, Newt not only CAN beat Obama-but baring some unforseen circumstances will clean-his-clock God willing!..
With all due respect, who do you support, and how about you spend your time explaining to readers why.
You’re just whining.
On what do you base that?
On what do you base that?
and he will pick off.... Democrats :)
Not if Gingrich gives him a high position to audit the fed.Shhhhh don’t tell Soros.
When chaos is eminent, and women fell threatened, they will always choose the dude with the gun.
Once Rick Santorum drops out of the race (which should probably happen Monday) it might be time for you to stop trashing Newt here on FR.
Praying for a double digit win tonight.
Praying for a double digit win tonight.
Churchill and Reagan had divorces.
Chamberlain and Hitler... were as pure as the wind driven snow.
And the Obama leftist/Romney RINO media (Yahoo News) has a headline today: “Why S. C. Vote May Not Matter” and then open it up to the National Journal story “The Race Is Still Romney’s”.
Me too. Me too.
Oh, happy days! Go, Newt!
Yep, O’Reilly was pushing the women hate Newt meme last night. A desperate push by desperate rinos.
Women actually hate more a bitter, vindictive former wife determined to take down a husband for an affair when that former wife did exactly the same thing to Newt’s wife #1.
To say you didn’t like it is one thing, but to wrap yourself in the mantle of the indignant is another.
Women know pure vindictiveness when they see it.
Santorum won't drop out.
He'll stay in it; recognizing that Newt is always one hare-brained idea away from deconstructing.
Until Newt proves that he is sufficiently disciplined to stay on a conservative course, without occasional excursions into liberal big government-land, we are best served by Santorum remaining in the race.
“Gingrich/Martinez 2012 “
Excellent very powerful ticket.
Where can I get a bumper sticker?
Thank you Mzz Ex-Noot
Yes we do. I always hated working with women back when I worked. Even at church they are all wrapped up in their high & mighty cliches whereas the husbands are always much friendlier and nicer.
Awesome! Send Newt money! I did...
I heard someone mention her, Martinez, the other night when talking about the great conservative Gov’s. Can’t remember who they were talking to though.
