Romney, Santorum struggle to arouse consistent passion in their own voters, exit polls show
Minneapolis Star-Tribune ^ | March 19, 2012 | ALAN FRAM

Posted on 03/19/2012 3:38:09 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

WASHINGTON - Mitt Romney may lead in delegates and Rick Santorum might have momentum, but neither of the two leading Republican presidential candidates is having an easy time exciting even his own voters.

Out of a dozen states where voters in the GOP contest have been polled, most Romney voters have said they strongly favor him in just five of them. A majority of Santorum voters felt that committed to him only four times out of 11 states where he was on the ballot and voters were surveyed.

Each man is struggling to consistently spark the intensity that could separate him from the pack.

Consider that Arizona is the only state where Romney had a higher proportion of voters expressing strong feelings about him than his rivals did. And Santorum hasn't had that edge in any state yet, despite an animated campaign style and passion for hot-button social issues like contraception that have contrasted with Romney's stiffer, more analytic manner.

On average, 50 percent of Romney voters and 49 percent of Santorum's say they strongly favor their candidate, with the rest expressing reservations about their man or a greater dislike for his rivals, according to entrance and exit polls of voters in 12 states.

When it comes to winning fervent devotion from his own supporters, both men trail former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul. Those two GOP presidential campaigns are lagging but 58 percent of Gingrich's backers and 53 percent of Paul's, on average, say they strongly favor their candidate. Analysts say higher percentages of devoted supporters are common with candidates whose lesser backing leaves them with only the most committed followers...........

Goodmorning CW:) I am not inspired by either one of them. This has been the election year from hell.

Good morning! It seems the Romney/Santorum voters are experiencing a bit of indigestion after voting for the “inevitable” and the “non-Romney” who isn’t viable unless the path is cleared for him.

Newt is the firewall keeping the Establishment from rolling over us before the convention. And the GOP-e knows it. Time to fan the rise of Gingrich and a conservative uprising.

IF Romney had spent as much on smear attacks on Santorum as he did Newt..Santorum would be polling in single digits. The gop E knew that Newt was the real threat.

Newt is so mad at Mitt Romney for Florida he is making sure Mitt wins the nomination by splitting the conservative vote AND by giving Romney the appearance of inevitability so that the lions’ shares of campaign donations will continue to go to the Mass RINO.

Thanks Newt for helping the only candidate (not counting the Nut) who can't beat Obama.
Spending your last millions on smearing Santorum in the Northern states is a nice touch as well—both you and Ron Paul will be remembered by posterity as Big Ross and Little Ross Perot.

Newt is the only one I’ve stood and cheered for this round. Romney is awful and Santorum is boring. I HAVE been excited when Santo has won because it skunked Mitt but I was never able to get through a whole Santo speech.

Newt is probably unelectable this round, though.

Not a good field at all for the GOP.

1) I have not been “inspired” since Sarah Palin. She still inspires me... and she is one of a few left on the scene that I trust. After Rush was caught with carbonite being a george soros... leftist funded... owned by a move-on sponsor company... I no longer even trust Rush. Levin, Malkin and Palin are the only three left that I truly trust... amongst the people. I ALWAYS trust in GOD.

2) There is nothing inspiring or trustworthy about what the repubic party has become or the sorry three excuses for politicians that they have conspired into the mix. Newt is the best of the three... I could vote for Santorum but he is a weak sister. romney is as bad as obama and worse if you give him a cooperative and progressive republican Senate. We already know that boehner and cantor are progressive and they will work with romney to pass things that they would block from obama. Think SUPER COMMITTEE!

3) Conservatives have each other and GOD... we have no party save the TEA Party, we have no elected representation in DC and we have no true candidate. Newt is as close as we are going to get to one this time unless... and who thinks that corruption and evil will not triumph at a contested Convention?

It sweet reading your pouty notes every day excusing Rick for being a lack-luster candidate. If he can't win on his own merit he will not win in Nov.

Neither Romney or Santorum are equipped to undo the damage that we have witnessed for the past 3 years.

Who will they choose for their ‘hatchet’ men and women; in the Cabinet?

How will they dismantle and abolish the Federal agencies that are dysfunctional or overreaching?

How much experience does either one have for dealing with Congress?

Impotence is not a winning strategy.

I agree.. it`s the worst GOP field I`ve ever seen.

What makes this tragic is Obama was so damned beatable. But the toxic avenger Romney poisoned the waters and they all turned on each other.

As things stand now, the GOP candidates aren`t Obama`s opponents.. they`re his entertainment.

This year, the heavy hitters remained on the sidelines while leaving a gaggle of retreads to pick from. What a friggin` shame.

Those on the Hill will not voluntarily change anything. And Rick and Mitt will only manage the mess (which means it will snowball us to default).

Newt has made change and as president he will again.

UNLIKE Rick and Mitt, Newt Gingrich didn't rest on his laurels complaining about the liberal political landscape of his state. Newt CHANGED the political landscape in GA (as he did in Washington), brought Democrats into the party, rallied people to get involved in politics -- all by pushing conservatism.

________________________________________

"ATLANTA — It wasn't so long ago that the Republican Party in Georgia was just an afterthought, and Democrats were in firm control of all the levers of state government. Back then, Newt Gingrich and other die-hard GOP stalwarts ventured across the state with the far-fetched message that Republicans could reverse the tide.

Now with commanding majorities in the Statehouse and control of all statewide offices, Gingrich is hoping his vision for how the GOP could overcome decades of Democratic dominance in Georgia will pay dividends. He sorely needs a victory when his home state votes Tuesday, along with a big chunk of its 76 delegates, to prove his stumbling presidential bid has staying power.

Many Republican figures in Georgia still credit him with championing conservative policies, outlining a framework for what a GOP majority in the state could accomplish and broadcasting talking points to a generation of up-and-coming conservative leaders. He's also applauded for lobbying conservative Democrats, like then-Rep. Nathan Deal, to switch parties.

"Everyone else was trying to lose as slowly as possible, and to die with dignity at the Alamo. He was talking confidently that the Republican majority in Georgia, in the South and nationally was right around the corner," said Ralph Reed, a veteran Georgia GOP operative who founded the national Faith and Freedom Coalition. "On the one hand it was crazy, but on the other it was just the most exciting thing you've ever heard.".....................In Ga., Gingrich helped build conservative base

The conservative vote won't be split in Nov if Rick is the candidate—big diff.

But if Newt has his way they will be either voting for Mitt or staying home.

Newt is an expert on what realpolitik is and yet hasn't a clue how or refuses out of petulant recalcitrance, to employ it.

Its gotterdamurung for him—if he can't win it the nation deserves to go down in flames with him.

Wait a second... these numbers are only nine percentage points apart on total spread, with only 3 points between the Romney/Santorum and Paul/Gingrich pairing. Also, as the article points out, “higher percentages of devoted supporters are common with candidates whose lesser backing leaves them with only the most committed followers.”

If I had been asked that question I'm not sure I would have said I strongly favor Santorum. Much would have depended on the exact wording. I have concerns about Santorum, but the same is true of the entire Republican field, and I would almost certainly vote for Gingrich if he were to become the nominee.

What **IS** interesting about the poll is the fervent dedication by Gingrich supporters compared to Ron Paul supporters. I'm very surprised by that. Either lots of Paulbots are having second thoughts (good!) or Newt Gingrich has managed to generate more enthusiasm among his people than Ron Paul, which is wonderful if true.

“On average, 50 percent of Romney voters and 49 percent of Santorum’s say they strongly favor their candidate... 58 percent of Gingrich's backers and 53 percent of Paul's, on average, say they strongly favor their candidate.

It was an interview conducted by Kilmeade and some lady host.

Santorum was asked questions and he answered them.
He wasn’t asked to be on to do a policy speech in a 2 minute session.

Anything you can manufacture is what many of you do just to have a reason to criticize Santorum.

Geesh

I understand...that's your story and you're skickin' with it. Only time will tell, now. Changing much at a brokered convention is fuzzy thinking in my opinion.

I don’t think we will have a brokered convention. I believe it is all noise to keep the remaining vote between Santorum and Gingrich split by the dream of a brokered convention.

A convention where the dream candidate will be installed as the nominee.

Romney is already halfway there. It may be June, but he will likely pick up enough delegates.

I hope I am wrong, but wishing doesn’t make it so either.

Please. Santorum is Santorum's biggest threat.

See this thread:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2860907/posts

Starting at 3:20, I've paraphrased, since I'm doing this mobile on a bus. mostly quoted (removed the "uhs" and "you knows").

Republicans, to our credit, have sort of morphed away from the Goldwater idea, you know, that the government needs to be smaller, needs to do less, it needs to be doing nothing except what it's core functions are, to a party that says we need to restructure the way we do programs to create the kind of incentives, help and programs that gives that authority to solve these problems to folks closer to these people, the family or individual themselves.

Replacing a would be dictator with a lacklustre opponent isn’t going to be easy.

Romney-the Repoublican leadership pick is about as exciting as watching grass grow, Santorum isn’t much better , and the real candidate who might be able to actually save the Constitution is hated by most Republicans.

Newt is the only one with any chance of beating Obama, and he cannot beat his two opponents.

Everyone except the GOP establishment could have seen this coming. The establishment cleared the decks of legitimate candidates because they deemed Mitt to be their boy. The rest was very predictable. They pumped up another RINO. However, this one is so odious and so blatant about his prgressive instincts that ther base is openly rejecting him. The establishment, and Mitt, assumed it would be easier and that the mouth-breathers in the base would just fall in line behind him.

That arrogance alone guarantees I will never vote for Romney.

‘Good morning! It seems the Romney/Santorum voters are experiencing a bit of indigestion after voting for the “inevitable” and the “non-Romney” who isn’t viable unless the path is cleared for him.’

I’ve changed my view on Newt remaining in the race, given a recent poll that showed Santorum and Romney splitting his supporters more or less evenly. That would mean an easy Romney victory - and that is to be avoided at all costs!

As for Santorum “not being viable unless the path is cleared for him”, that criticism would go double for Gingrich, wouldn’t it? lol

“Newt is the firewall keeping the Establishment from rolling over us before the convention. And the GOP-e knows it. Time to fan the rise of Gingrich and a conservative uprising.”

I’m afraid you’re dreaming here. Newt had his chance, and blew it. Further, if he somehow did land the nomination, in my view he’d get creamed in the general. Even his performance among the “faithful” (Republicans) has been pretty abysmal.

I guess I mixed my message — Newt is the firewall and that is why his supporters are begging him to stay in the race. He is the only conservative who is giving a “shake up” D.C. message.

Mitt and Rick echo Newt each and every time the president goes after Newt, for taking it to him. Their handlers are able to follow the conservative bread crumbs Newt is dropping each and every day.

here is what I think makes no sense. After the Miss and Ala promaries, Newt made a statement that He and Rick, collectively, were keeping Romney from sailing to the nomination. That they can force a brokered convention.

Well okay, lets say that is so. That neither Rick or Newt can win enough delegates to seize the nomination for thenself.

Sooooo, I don’t understand why so much effort is expended here attcking and ridiculing Rick, who is taking the most delegates from Romney to keep him from an easy win. Especially if you want a brokered convention. It seems all the focus and ridicule should be on Mitt to lower his standing.

A person doesn’t have to be crazy for Rick or Newt, all they have to be is against Romney and accept whoever can win deleagtes to stop Romney.

But that isn’t happening here. The opposite is happening. The hate is all directed at Santorum which doesn’t help Newt, but bolsters Romney.

There is no logic in this if people aim for a brokered convention.

Precisely. Newt Gingrich is the only candidate this time around who's fully prepared to be Commander-in-Chief and he's the only candidate of substance and real solutions of his very own.

Obama is answering him, on his platform of $2.50 a gallon gas, not the others, but the media ignores Newt and that fact.

Typical.

This primary remains all about shutting down Newt Gingrich, but shutting him OUT.

GO NEWT!
