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.
