Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 13 April 12 Edition

In a surprise this week, Richard John Santorum unexpectedly did the common sense thing and withdrew from the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential race – the other two guys are still in it; what are their names?

So, the GOTP primaries are basically done now …

“Ladies and Gentlemen, I present your presidential nominee, Willard Mitt Romney!” (cue crickets)

The regular season primary comes to its all but inevitable end with the current records for the GOTP “Confederacy of Dunces”: Romney 21; Santorum 10; Gingrich 2 and “What’s His Name” 0.

The GOTP Delegate Count (1,144 needed to win) to date is: Romney 566; Santorum 263; Gingrich 140 and Paul 67.

The current GOTP Popular Vote Count is:

Romney 4,595,908

Santorum 3,209,301

Gingrich 2,284,557

Paul 1,191,026

So, how does Willard stand up against the President?

The last viable poll (which is neither FOX News nor Rasmussen) the ABC News/Wash Post poll of registered voters conducted 5 – 8 Apr 12; if the general election were held today:

President Obama 51/Romney 44

So, the GOTP clown car has all but come to a wild spinning stop, and if the general election was held today, Willard Mitt Romney would be the GOTP nominee, and he’d lose to President Obama in the general election.

How big would Willard lose? Well, if the General Election were held today, the Electoral College totals based on current poll numbers:

Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 29 Mar 12 Edition

So, the up and down, twisting and turning roller coaster ride also known as the 2012 Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential primary tour continues rather than abating with Richard John “Rick” Santorum winning the Louisiana Proportional Primary (46 delegates) with 49% (10 delegates); Willard Mitt Romney 27.7% (5 delegates) and the other two guys were there somewhere.

Next up is Wisconsin’s Winner Take All Primary – 3 Apr 12 (42 delegates) where in order to maintain some kind of believability Santorum must win, becoming – according to polls – an uphill battle: new Marquette University poll of likely voters conducted 22 – 25 Mar 12; Romney 39 and Santorum 31.

The regular season primary records for the Confederacy of Dunces stands: Romney 21; Santorum 10; Gingrich 2 and “What’s His Name” 0.

The GOTP Delegate Count (1,144 needed to win) to date is: Romney 565; Santorum 256; Gingrich 141 and Paul 66.

The current GOTP Popular Vote Count is:

Romney 4,127,917

Santorum 2,850,546

Gingrich 2,212,001

Paul 1,079,753

Yes, while Willard is leading with 4,127,917 the harsh reality is more votes have been cast for anyone but him; total of all other votes cast = 6,142,300; yeah he may be winning but it still sucks to be Mitt.

Nationally, the GOTP Nomination according to the latest Gallup Tracking poll of registered voters conducted 24 – 28 Mar 12: Romney 39; Santorum 28; Paul 11 and Gingrich 10 with 12% undecided.

So, how do the four Political Marx Brothers stack up against the President? The latest CNN/Opinion Research poll of registered voters conducted 24 – 25 Mar 12; if the general election were held today:

President Obama 54/Romney 43

President Obama 55/Santorum 42

If the GOTP clown car had finally came to a wild spinning stop, and the general election was held today, Willard Mitt Romney would be the GOTP nominee, and he’d lose big to President Obama in the general election.

How big would Willard lose? Well, if the General Election were held today, the Electoral College totals based on current poll numbers:

It’s way past time

Watching the most recent episode of “Help, the Party’s Been Hijacked!” – more popularly known as the 2nd Florida Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Debate – brought keenly into focus that its time for at least one of the four candidates to jump out of the clown car, and no, I’m not referring to Mittens, Newton or Ricky.

It’s painful to continue watching Ron Paul’s “crazy uncle” routine week after week; he’s actually beginning – with each passing debate – to appear to be morphing into the two guys (Statler and Waldorf) who used to sit in the balcony and heckle poor hapless Fozzy Bear each week on the Muppet Show. Please Congressman, you’re embarrassing yourself. I don’t admit it hasn’t been fun (at times), but now it’s time for your nurse to take you back to your room and give you your meds.

Now, don’t get me wrong, very few people enjoy seeing the Grand Old Party implode more than me, but this is getting way past painful to watch, and it’s far past becoming a joke. At this point I’d rather watch a “Mama’s Family” marathon.

Of course, Congressman Paul’s never stood a chance of winning the nomination, most political party’s – including the GOTP – try to avoid nominating people who can’t get elected, well, there was that whole Sarah Palin thing, but why open that old wound and poor lemon juice into it? People aren’t laughing with you Dr. Paul, they’re laughing at you; seriously, you stand a better chance of being mauled by a pack of rabid dingos, a white Bengal tiger and mountain lion at the same time than winning the nomination much less being elected president. Paging Dr Paul, it’s “To Dream the Impossible Dream” Don Quixote, not “To Dream the There Ain’t No Frickin Way It’s Ever – And I Do Mean Ever – Going to Happen Rag Time Dream”.

Hopefully the people of Florida will finally make it crystal clear to you that it’s time; we’ll see; but then again they did elect Rick Scott.

Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 19 Jan 12 (pre-South Carolina Primary) Edition

The GOTP nominating circus, specifically the GOTP clown car, continues spinning wildly down the road, and it’s spun another wannabe out the window; a new Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 17 Jan 12 has been released and the current poll results are:

Willard Mittens Romney 30; Newton “Benny Hill” Gingrich 27; Ricky “The Ric” Santorum 15 and Ronny Paul 13

The Palmetto State primary is Saturday and a new Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted on 18 Jan 12 shows Newt in the lead once again: Gingrich 33; Romney 31; Paul 13 and Santorum 11

Romney continues to lead strongly in Florida where the new CNN/Time poll of likely voters conducted on 13 – 17 Jan 12 has Romney 43; Santorum 19; Gingrich 18 and Paul 9

In the upcoming Nevada Caucus Romney leads in the latest Las Vegas Review-Journal poll: Romney 35; Gingrich 26; Paul 5; Perry 4; Huntsman and Santorum 1

Concerning how the GOTP candidates stack up against the President, the latest PPP (D) poll of registered voters conducted 13 – 16 Jan 12, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 49/Romney 44

President Obama 49/Gingrich 42

President Obama 50/Santorum 42

President Obama 47/Paul 42

Romney’s primary record went from 2-0 to 1-1, and may be 1-2 come Saturday; a suddenly clear victory is now a possibly long and drawn out primary process.

So, 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.

Santorum wins Iowa?

The Associated Press is reporting that Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Ricky Santorum actually won the Iowa Caucus two weeks ago, and not Willard Mittens Romney.

“There have been two contests,” Santorum said after hearing he actually was victorious. “We won one.”

Ricky reportedly bested Romney by 34 votes in the final tally of Iowa’s caucuses.

“This is a solid win. It’s a much stronger win than the win Gov. Romney claimed to have,” Santorum declared.

Romney of course, who won New Hampshire’s primary, is attempting to call the Iowa results a “virtual tie” while Santorum’s calling it a sign that any calls for him to leave were premature.

“We feel very, very good about what this win will mean,” Santorum said of Iowa’s fresh results. “It says that we can win elections. We can organize. We can put together an effort to pull the resources together to be able to be successful in being the person who can defeat Mitt Romney. Guess what? We defeated Mitt Romney in Iowa.”

Well, it could mean that, or it might just prove that conservative Iowans are still as weird as they were in 2008 when they gave the state to Mike Huckabee.

After “winning” in Iowa, Santorum’s busy trying to build a grass-roots organization of socially conservative Republicans, including pastors, similar to the one that apparently helped him finally finish on top in Iowa; but does the news of a win in Iowa come too late to make any difference in South Carolina? Probably, but the GOTP primary clown car has been spinning wildly back and forth for months now so with the current Tea Party bunch garnering so much power who can tell?

Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 30 Dec 11 Edition

Concerning the ongoing GOTP nominating circus, a new Gallup Tracking poll of registered voters conducted 23 – 29 Dec 11 has been released and the current poll results are:

Mittens Romney 26; Newton “Benny Hill” Gingrich 24; Ronny Paul 11; Reverend Rick Perry 7; Michele “Krazy” Bachmann and Ricky “The Ric” Santorum 5 and Jon “I can’t believe it’s not butter” Huntsman 2

The GOTP clown car continues to careen wildly down the campaign trail with Mittens taking over the driving and Newton being shoved aside; Paul’s holding on in a weak third place while Reverend Perry moves up to fourth and Krazy moves back to fall in a tie at fifth with Santorum as Huntsman continues to loiter about at bottom-dwelling mud sucker status.

Romney somehow moves into the lead in Iowa as Santorum pushes up to a surprising third where a new NBC News/Marist poll of likely voters conducted 27 – 28 Dec 11 reports Romney 23; Paul 21; Santorum 15; Perry 14; Gingrich 13; Bachmann 6 and Huntsman 2

Romney holds onto his very solid lead in New Hampshire where the new CNN/Time poll of likely voters conducted 21 – 27 Dec 11 shows Mittens 44; Paul 17; Gingrich 16; Huntsman 9; Santorum 4; Bachmann 3 and Perry 2

Newton holds on In South Carolina where the latest Clemson poll of likely voters conducted 6 – 19 Dec 11 find Gingrich 38; Romney 21; Paul 10; Perry and Bachmann 5; Huntsman 3 and Santorum 2

Romney takes the lead in Florida where the new TelOpinion (R) poll of registered voters conducted on 15 – 19 Dec 11 has Romney 27; Gingrich 26; Paul 5; Perry and Bachmann 4; Huntsman and Santorum 1

In the four states with the lead off primaries – or caucuses – Romney now leads in three to Gingrich’s 1

Concerning how the GOTP “candidates stack up against the President; according to a very suspicious Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters conducted 27 – 28 Dec 11, if the general election were held today:

President Obama 39/Romney 45

President Obama 47/Gingrich 47

Suddenly Mittens surges ahead of the President in a Rasmussen poll days before the Iowans crown their choice to lead the GOTP race, this is more than a little suspicious and as with every Rasmussen poll, where the President is concerned, should be taken with a very large grain of salt.

So, if the GOTP clown car had finally stopped spinning, and the general election was held today, and if the Rasmussen polls can be trusted (very doubtful) Mittens Romney would be the GOTP nominee, and would beat President Obama in the general election.
