Posted on 01/21/2012 8:46:55 AM PST by TBBT

Below is from my FNC colleague Serafin Gomez

—- Subject: SC Final: Gingrich 40%, Romney 26%

Newt Gingrich leads the South Carolina Republican presidential primary with 40% and is followed by Mitt Romney with 26%, Ron Paul with 18%, and Rick Santorum with 13%.

Gingrich has gained 7 percentage points since the survey conducted January 17-18 and Romney has lost 6 percentage points since that survey.

Gingrich leads Romney 47% to 24% among self-identified Republicans, followed by Paul and Santorum with 14% each. Paul leads among independents and Democrats with 33%, followed by Romney with 31%, Gingrich with 18%, and Santorum with 10%.

Gingrich leads among those likely primary voters saying they are supporters of the Tea Party with 48%, followed by Romney with 19%, Santorum with 16%, and Paul with 14%. Gingrich leads with 33% among those saying they are not supporters of the Tea Party or are undecided about the Tea Party, followed by Romney with 31%, and Paul with 22%.

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%.

*snip*

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?

Get out there and vote SC. The bigger winning margin Newt gets, the more his momentum going into FL. :)

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.

Looks like Santorum is making a big mistake.

Instead of bashing Newt, he should be plying for Secy. HHS. He's be good there.

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.

Ron Paul is dangerous.

Ron Paul, Soros and Defense

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4q1vYx1V3g&feature=related

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..

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.

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.

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”.

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.

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.

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.
