A new Gallup Tracking poll of registered voters conducted from 12 – 17 Dec 11 has been released concerning the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) nominating circus; the current poll results are:
Newton Leroy Gingrich 28; Mittens Romney 24; Ronny Paul 10; Michele “Krazy” Bachmann 7; Reverend Rick Perry 6; Ricky “The Ric” Santorum 4 and Jon “I can’t believe it’s not butter” Huntsman 2
The GOTP clown car continues to spin wildly down the campaign trail with Newton holding on to what appears to be an ever shrinking lead over Bridesmaid Mittens; Paul’s gaining in third while Krazy moves back into a distant fourth and Reverend Perry hopefully is beginning his final plunge; Huntsman falls back to bottom-dwelling mud sucker status while Santorum begins to once again float to the top of this political cesspool.
In Iowa, a new PPP (D) poll of likely voters conducted 16 – 18 Dec 11: Paul 23; Romney 20; Gingrich 14; Perry, Bachmann and Santorum 10 and Huntsman 4
Ron Paul surges to the front of the pack in Iowa!
In New Hampshire, the Insider Advantage poll of likely voters conducted 12 Dec 11: Mittens 29; Gingrich 24; Paul 21; Huntsman 11; Bachmann 4; Santorum 2 and Perry 1
In South Carolina, the NBC News/Marist poll of likely voters conducted 4 – 6 Dec 11: Gingrich 42; Romney 23; Paul 9; Perry and Bachmann 7; Huntsman 3 and Santorum 4
In Florida, the new NBC News/Marist poll of likely voters conducted on 04 – 07 Dec 11: Gingrich 44; Romney 29; Paul 8; Perry 4; Bachmann and Huntsman 3; Santorum 2
In the four states with the lead off primaries – or caucuses – Gingrich leads in two, Paul in one and Mittens in one …
Concerning how the GOTP “candidates stack up against the President; according to a Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 14 – 15 Dec 11, if the general election were held today:
President Obama 42/Romney 43
A Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 12 – 13 Dec 11, if the general election were held today:
President Obama 49/Gingrich 39
So, if the GOTP clown car had finally stopped spinning, and the general election was held today, Newton Leroy Gingrich would be the GOTP nominee, but he would’ve lost huge to President Obama.
