New Dixie Strategies Poll Of 2,567 Likely Voters Has Gingrich Up By .38% In Florida Primary
News-Press (Copyright complaint block!) ^ | 1/27/2012 (Near Midnight) | News-Press Staff

Posted on 01/28/2012 10:18:54 AM PST by Laissez-faire capitalist

Dixie Strategies/The News-Press/First Coast's new poll has almost 2,600 likely voters. Gingrich is up by .38%. He leads Romney 35.46% to 35.08%. Santorum is in third with around 9%.

Almost 2,600 likely voters makes this a gigantic poll and super accurate as well.

He might pull it off yet. It would be nice to see that arrogant smirk wiped off Mitt's face.

Maybe Newt is picking up from Santorum. Looks like it given the 9% for Santorum in the pull.

How are they able to get two decimal points of precision on 2,600 voters? 0.38% isn’t a significant lead with 95% confidence unless there are 66,500 or more respondents in the survey.

It’s a dead heat...

Who’s more arrogant in your opinion, Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?

For me, it’s a tough choice

Why they have to have a copyright complaint block is beyond me. I tried posting it to News/Current events but couldn’t.

Oh well, they only limit traffic coming to their site...

But the info there is still useful, for educational/informative purposes.

Michael Reagan is suppose to be campaigning for Newt in Florida this weekend. I wonder if that will help.

I think there is potential....but there needs to be a recognition that folks being played into voting for a loser by the MSM. They will rise up if there are enough people to see this in time.

If Palin would just say she would vote for Newt in FL thing would look better. Better yet if she would just endorse Newt, that would finish Romney.

Newt needs to absolutely hammer Romneycare in the next few days. Pam Bondi, Mitt’s health care witch, has already said they’d like to impose Romneycare in all 50 states!

There would have to be a significant pool. Probably at the level you affixed to it (65k). Maybe more.

Nonetheless, it is a dead heat with Newt by a nose.

Just released, though from 23-25.

With that many polled (2,567) nothing has changed much.

Other polling firms will often release their polls in a similar fashion.

Perhaps the super size pool reflects this.

Newt probably dropped a bit from that terrible, unprepared debate performance. Sarah can only do so much, Newt needs to turn it on the next couple days. Santorum needs to drop out, he is getting 9-15% in some polls and most of that would go to newt. Why do the conservatives have to split the vote!!

Santorum has said again and again he is in it for the long run, and will prevail in the end after Newt & Mitt expose each others baggage to the fullest and kill of each other.

MYTH ROMNEY IS A MORMON MELCHIDEZEK HIGH PRIEST

BISHOP MITT ROMNEY, HIGH PRIEST AND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

High Priest and Bishop

Bernard Francis Law for President of the United States? Why would one anyone be opposed? Archbishop Law presided over Boston’s Roman Catholic Churches, which had overlapped Mitt Romney’s rule over Mormon churches in the same area. Secularized America, now in a Fourth Great Awakening, is considering missionary- pastor-archpriest-bishop Romney as a serious candidate for Commander in Chief. Surely Christopher Hitchens would not be pleased.

Beginning in the mid 1980s, Romney served for nearly ten years as bishop over the Boston Mormon churches where he directed over a dozen congregations. Romney said that his experience as a pastor gave him practical experience working with the down and out.

According to the Mormon religion, the presidential candidate became an ordained priest of Aaron when he was a teenager. A Mormon priest is the authority and power of God Himself. The Aaronic Priesthood holds the key of ministering angels by teaching doctrines of the church – the Mormon church that is. Priests of Aaron are called “to administer the law of carnal commandments.” Mitt’s cousin, Marion Romney, wrote in his revised edition of the Doctrines and Covenants Commentary that the Mormon priesthood was no different than the relationship between Aaron and Moses in the Bible. Aaron was a spokesman “instead of God;” we assume that Mormon priest Mitt Romney considers himself one as well.

High Priest and Bishop ... and President of the USA?

The ministering of angels aspect of the Aaronic Priesthood is quite powerful according to Mormon authorities: “…the action of angels or messengers of God upon our minds, so that the heart can conceive things past, present, and to come, and revelations from the eternal world, is, among a majority of mankind, a great mystery…” Thus saith Mitt Romney’s cousin, Marion, who was a church theologian and LDS boss. Wouldn’t it be great to have a guy like this running the country? He could interpret the “mysteries” of world for the entire country through angelic beings.

Upon promotion to the high Melchizedek Priesthood (a title, which according to the Bible, belongs to Jesus Christ alone) Mitt Romney became governor of the kingdom of God on earth. Romney is a “…high priest and called to a presidency, high council, or bishop …” Joseph Smith claimed that the ordainment into this elite class of priests enrolls a man into “a Priesthood of the Son of God.” The Priests of Aaron are enabled to “see God, even God the Father.”

Mitt Romney’s elevation to the high Melchizedek priesthood comes with a responsibility “to obtain revelations of the mind and will of God. It is the privilege of the Melchizedek Priesthood to reprove, rebuke, and admonish, as well as to receive revelation.”

The Mormon Melchizedek priests are made presidents of their church; therefore why not make them President of the entire country? What could possibly go wrong?

Glad you posted this. After reading comments at the EXmos website, discussing all the lies and falsehoods in the mormon church, it is becoming very clear that Mitt is up to his eyeballs in DECEIT.

He claims he is never responsible for any of the Negatives about Newt, he has no control. He is not aware of any of his investments, etc., it is always someone else and he is simply innocent of everything.

HE KNOWS EVERYTHING that goes on in his behalf, isn't that what his brother said? lol

Mitt HIDES behind all lies, just as his church has instructed him and all mormons to do about their many secret services and rituals. MITT is a MASTER OF DECEPTION, that is how he gets by in the debates and dodges questions that get to close,i.e., "I'll get back to that, first I want to talk about...", and never gets back to the original question. He is Satan's tool.

There is simply no way to combat this deception without seeming to be a bigot. Newt can't, and anytime he goes after Mitt on other issues, Mitt denies everything. It is Maddening.

It was advertised as a Dixie Stategies/News-Press (NEWS PRESS) poll, so I gave the info from that site, as that site has given copyright complaints.

Out if no where you show up with that kind of Troll attitude, or trying to cause a Mittbotish diversion.

Not allowed. Jim Robinson has been alerted.

A large percentage of Florida Republicans have already voted by absentee ballot. I’ve heard that as many as 40% had voted before the SC primary. I don’t think these daily tracking polls have any use at all.

Of all the candidates, Newt is a Tea Partier from way back! --1994--

House Minority Whip Gingrich and 7th District congressional candidate Brenda Fitzgerald throw mock tea crates into the Chattahoochee River on April 15, 1994, as part of a "Taxpayer's Tea party" in Roswell, Georgia.

If so it might be possible that a good percentage of these will have pro-Newt votes, since his collapse then rise was in a very short period of time before the SC primary. These votes might outside that window and inside the time window that showed a significant level of support for Newt.

Mormonism is a theocracy, just like Islam, and has a bloody history. That’s why it took the US Cavalry to make the Mormons behave themselves. And Romney’s great grandfather fled to Mexico with his wives when polygamy was outlawed (as a condition of Utah applying for statehood).

Santorum is hoarding 9% in Florida.

Rick Santorum is "tired and broke" and has gone home to Pennsylvania to "do his taxes".

Rick knows, and every Florida Santorum supporter should know that Rick has no chance of WINNING the 50 winner-take-ALL delegates Tuesday in Florida. But he will be the spoiler if his FL supporters hang on, and that throws ALL 50 delegates to the liberal ROMNEY.

Rick's advisers are guarding his campaign checkbook, trying to keep a skeleton campaign alive in case Gingrich or Romney implode in later states.
http://news.yahoo.com/tired-broke-santorum-heads-home-taxes-084655933.html

So Santorum Floridians, please take the hint and do NOT toss your 50 delegates to ROMNEY!

MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT TOWARD DELEGATES to the most viable conservative!

yep, same situation in Fl as in SC. Until and unless Romney is knocked out Santorum doesn’t have a prayer (no pun inteded) and Santorum doesn’t have the numbers.

Otherwise, Go Florida!

Well stated, right now Rick Santorum is helping Romney and hurting conservatives.

He has to know that deep down and he also has to know he has no chance of winning.

My feeling is that he is waiting for a buy out from Romney or has been already been bought out, hope I'm wrong......We'll see how it unfolds.

If I thought an outspoken social conservative who has been actively hated by large chunks of the Democrat base for years had a chance, I’d support Santorum over Newt. But we don’t live in that reality.

“The survey was conducted between Monday and Wednesday.”

Old poll. This was conducted before Newts disasterous debate performance Thursday. I’m sure he has dropped since then and Romney and Santorum have gone up.
