Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – (pre-Super Tuesday) 5 Mar 12 Edition

Tomorrow – Super Tuesday – Republican Tea Party (GOTP) types will run to the polls in droves to decide which for which of the four horsemen of the GOPocalypse they hope will win their party’s presidential nomination.

Willard Mittens Romney won Saturday’s Washington’s Non-Binding Caucus with 43 delegates; Romney 37.6 (16 delegates); Santorum 32 (5 delegates); Paul 16 (5 delegates) and Gingrich 13 (0 delegates).

So how do things stack up going into Super Tuesday (6 Mar 12)?

Alaska’s Proportional Caucus with 27 delegates; no polling info …

Georgia Proportional Primary with 76 delegates; InsiderAdvantage poll of likely voters conducted 4 Mar 12: Gingrich 47; Romney 21; Santorum 18 and Paul 6 with 8% undecided. Newt is showing a second wind, at least in his home state – but the more important question is who will take second place?

Idaho’s Non-Binding Caucus with 32 delegates; no polling info …

Massachusetts Proportional Primary with 41 delegates; Suffolk/7News poll of likely voters conducted 11 – 15 Feb 12: Romney 64; Santorum 16; Paul 7 and Gingrich 6 and with 7% undecided.

North Dakota’s Non-Binding Caucus with 28 delegates; no polling info …

Ohio Proportional Primary with 66 delegates; Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 4 Mar 12: Santorum 32; Romney 31; Gingrich and Paul 13 with 11% undecided.

Oklahoma Proportional Primary with 43 delegates; Rasmussen Reports of likely voters conducted 21 Feb 12: Santorum 43; Gingrich 22; Romney 18 and Paul 7 with 10% undecided.

Tennessee’s Proportional Primary with 58 delegates; PPP (D) poll of likely voters conducted 3 – 4 Mar 12: Santorum 34; Romney 29; Gingrich 27 and Paul 8 with 2% undecided.

In Vermont’s Hybrid Primary with 17 delegates; Castleton State College poll of likely voters conducted 11 – 11 Feb 12: Romney 34; Santorum 27; Paul 14 and Gingrich 10 with 15% undecided

Virginia ludicrous Hybrid Primary (where only Romney and Paul are on the ballot) with 49 delegates; a new NBC News/Marist poll of likely voters conducted 29 Feb – 2 Mar 12: Romney 69 and Paul 26 with 5% undecided. Of course winning a state where you’re the only real candidate on the ballot doesn’t mean much, except in delegates awarded.

So the Super Tuesday rundown looks like this:

Romney: Idaho, Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia

Santorum: Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee,

Gingrich: Georgia

Paul:

Unknown: Alaska and North Dakota

The regular season records for the gallant candidates: Romney 7; Santorum 3; Gingrich 1 and Paul 0 with Maine still unbelievably yet to be determined.

The GOTP Delegate Count to date is: Romney 173; Santorum 74; Paul 37 and Gingrich 33.

The current GOTP Popular Vote Count is:

Romney 1,786,594

Gingrich 989,187

Santorum 956,245

Paul 479,835

Nationally the GOTP Nomination according to the latest NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl poll of registered voters conducted 29 Feb – 3 Mar 12: Romney 38; Santorum 32; Gingrich and Paul 13 with 4% undecided.

So, how does each of the Four Horseman of the GOPocalypse stack up against the President? The latest NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl poll of registered voters conducted 29 Feb – 3 Mar 12; if the general election were held today:

President Obama 50/Romney 44

President Obama 53/Santorum 39

If the GOTP clown car had finally stopped spinning, and the general election was held today, Willard Mittens Romney would be the GOTP nominee, and he’d lose to President Obama in the general election.

Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 16 Feb 12 Edition

The current regular season records for the remaining four GOTP candidates are Santorum 4, Romney 3, Gingrich 1 and Paul 0; and Maine remains to be decided!

After Ricky pulled the trifecta, Mittens scrambled for a desperate win in Maine, and after some shenanigans by the state GOTO he maybe, kinda, sort of picked up a win; but hold the phone, there’s a lot of votes remaining to be counted and many more yet to be cast in the pine tree state, many of which may be for Ron Paul, and may give Uncle Ron his first primary win.

Michigan’s Hybrid Primary with 30 Delegates – 28 Feb 12; last Inside MI Politics/MRG poll of likely voters conducted 13 – 14 Feb 12: Santorum 43; Romney 33; Gingrich 11 and Paul 8 with 5% undecided.

There’s no new polling in Arizona’s Winner Take All Primary with 29 delegates – 28 Feb 12; the last Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 01 Feb 12: Romney 48; Gingrich 24; Santorum 13 and Paul 6 with 9% undecided.

Super Tuesday (6 Mar 12)

Georgia Proportional Primary with 76 delegates; Landmark/Rosetta Stone poll of likely voters conducted 09 Feb 12: Gingrich 35; Santorum 26; Romney 16 and Paul 5 with 18% undecided.

Ohio Proportional Primary with 66 delegates; Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 15 Feb 12: Santorum 42; Romney 24; Gingrich 13 and Paul 10 with 11% undecided.

Oklahoma Proportional Primary with 43 delegates; Sooner Poll of registered voters conducted 17 Nov – 16 Dec 11: Gingrich 33; Romney 14; Paul 4 and Santorum 2 with 47% undecided.

Massachusetts Proportional Primary with 41 delegates; PPP (D) poll of registered voters conducted 16 – 18 Sep 11: Romney 50; Gingrich and Paul 5 and Santorum 1 with 44% undecided

Vermont Hybrid Primary with 17 delegates; PPP (D) poll of registered voters conducted 28 – 31 Jul 11: Romney 26; Paul 7 and Gingrich 6 with 61% undecided

Virginia Hybrid Primary (where only Romney and Paul are on the ballot) with 49 delegates; Quinnipiac poll of registered voters conducted 1 – 9 Feb 12: Romney 68 and Paul 19 with 13% undecided.

The Current GOTP Delegate Count is: Romney 90; Santorum 44; Gingrich 32 and Paul 13. Hopefully the state officials in Maine will figure it all out and figure it out soon allowing the voters to know who’s really in the lead moving into Arizona and Michigan.

The current GOTP Popular Vote Count is:

Romney 1,119,283

Gingrich 838,344

Santorum 430,753

Paul 305,797

Nationally the GOTP Nomination according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of registered voters conducted 14 Feb 12: Santorum 39; Romney 27; Gingrich 15 and Paul 10 with 9% undecided.

So, how does each of the Four Horseman of the GOPocalypse stack up against the President? The latest Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 13 – 15 Feb 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 47/Romney 43

President Obama 51/Gingrich 37

President Obama 47/Santorum 41

President Obama 44/Paul 39

If the GOTP clown car had finally stopped spinning, and the general election was held today, Rick Santorum would be the GOTP nominee, and he’d lose to President Obama in the general election.

What’s the electoral map look like if the election were held today?

Romney says Gingrich campaign’s a sitcom?

According to the Associated Press (AP), Republican Tea Party (GOTP) perpetual presidential bridesmaid, Mittens Romney is comparing Newton Gingrich’s campaign to the 1950’s sitcom, “I Love Lucy”.

Mittens mewed about Newton during a stop in New Hampshire, knocking the former House speaker for likening his trouble getting onto Virginia’s primary ballot to attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

“I think he compared that to … what was it, Pearl Harbor? I think it’s more like Lucille Ball at the chocolate factory,” Mittens mewed, referring to the episode where the homemaker Lucy switches places with her husband for a day and is humorously overwhelmed as chocolates fly past her on an assembly line. “You’ve got to get it organized.”

GOTP officials in Virginia announced over the weekend that Gingrich had failed to submit enough signatures to get on the ballot for the state’s March 6 primary. In a post on Facebook, campaign manager Michael Krull compared the situation to the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor in December 1941.

Wow, really? So, GOTP officials are the Japanese attacking Pearl Harbor because the yokels on the Gingrich campaign can’t get their collective acts together? How pathetic. What this demonstrates is how flat footed Newton’s team really is; he never seriously expected to be in a position to be challenging Mittens for the nomination and the three ring circus he calls a campaign is proof positive of that with Gingrich wearing the red nose and big floppy shoes. If the Newt campaign resembles any kind of TV show however it’s not “I Love Lucy”, it’s “Benny Hill”.
