Skip to comments.PPP POLL: ALABAMA ( ROM 31- Newt 30- San 29

Wish we could give you some clarity in Alabama but...Romney 31, Gingrich 30, Santorum 29, Paul 8
Go Newt! Alabama can do it!
Paul supporters, but not Paul himself, could make or break the other three. With these numbers, there will be a 3-WAY TIE FOR THE DELEGATES. I imagine the GOP-E is so strong in AL that it is pushing Romney. Also Roy Moore is on the ballot, and he is bound to lose again for the Supreme Court. That hurts conservatives. AL people won’t vote for Roy Moore.
Keep in mind that PPP is a Carville owned polling company and they are as honest as Politico and Nancy Pelosi when it comes to anything Republican.
“Time for Rick, ***the spoiler***, to get out of the way, dagnammit!!!” .... /gibe
Surprised it is this close and Romney is in the lead. Do they have early voting in Alabama?
With the margin of error, this is essentially a dead heat (except ole’ Paul of course). Should be interesting.
check out #3.
How does Romney have any strength in the South? Sickening.
The RNC and Congressional chit calling is underway. Bribes, positions, earmarks, contracts, (threats perhaps of losses of all the above).
The people of Alabama can not be behind this, but “interest groups” may be playing a role.
Never heard before that PPP was a Carville enterprise! That is news.
Romney’s strength in MS is probably tied to Haley Barbour; in MS to establishment figures that we may not recognize. I think the AL governor, Robert Bentley, is a liberal Republican, isn’t he?
GO NEWT GO!
Not sure. Everything about Romney just seems so contrary to the people I’ve met from down that way. He’s a phony northeastern politician.
Even if Newt ends up at 31 and Romney at 30, does it matter?
Romney keeps gobbling up delegates. The thing about Romney is that where he doesn’t do well he still gets 20-30% and grabs some delegates.
When Gingrich doesn’t do well he is in single digits and gets no delegates. And Santorum can’t master the task of getting on ballots.
Maybe Mr. Newt should offer a cabinet position to Rick, something solid, like Secretary of State? Maybe he would be willing to join Mr. Newt to beat Romney. Rick simply cannot beat Obama, I am sure of it. The liberals will tear him apart, and he has very thin skin. I can’t believe there isn’t something Mr. Newt could do to get Rick on his side.
I’m dyin’ here if this is but remotely true. Santorum must be plugging away for Romney in Alabama, for a share of his ticket.
Rick reads the writing on the wall. Still, for the sake of salvaging less than 1144 for Romney, I hope the spoiled one stays in.
Ron Paul will try to stay in to the convention, for a seat at the table, but it is Romney he wants to deal on Rand’s behalf.
What do you bet there is a war between Ron Paul and Rick Santorum for the Romney ticket?
Romney would need someone from the South (Rand Paul), but,
Santorum has more delegates to offer than Paul.
Newt is the only one running on truth, and he knows exactly what is playing behind the scenes, I’m confident of that. Lord have Mercy.
elitist I forgot elitist.
Rick’s taking one for the team!
I believe Newt has made overtures to Rick some time ago, which explains his light touch and patience dealing with the kid squealer, but in my own mind I think Santorum rejected Newt to go for the power ticket, Romney.
Santorum has ALWAYS played ball with the Establishment and is indebted to them, and they to him really, for his cooperation, particularly for his backing Specter in PA.
Rick is a climber and a player. Always has been, always will be and his RINO record of play fits in perfectly with Romney.
Hey Rita- They say Newt’s doing well with the Tea Party- Those folks better turn out- If it’s within 1-2%, the Ala Gop-e controls the ballots.
Least Newt’s in a better position than a week ago -13.5%.
