A new national poll released Monday shows Newt Gingrich surging to a statistical tie with rival presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The former House speaker now has the backing of 28% of registered Republicans to Romney’s 29% nationwide, according to the latest results from Gallup’s daily tracking poll.
Voters were surveyed Wednesday through Saturday, mostly before and partially after Gingrich’s South Carolina primary victory.
What is going on here? REAL Republicans are voting for Mittens:
Newt Gingrich scored a big upset win in South Carolina Saturday beating the so called front runner Mitt Romney by a huge 12 percentage points. Even more surprising than the margin of victory was the fact that Gingrich won almost every county in the state and every voter category.
Many were shocked to see that Newt won the women vote over Romney by about 10% and he also won the Evangelical vote. Basically, every category except voters that make over $200,000 a year and voters that have master degrees went to Newt.
What is the matter with the riff-raff? Since when do people who are so pathetic that they can’t even pull 200K per year matter in a REPUBLICAN primary?
Mittens is going to have to yell at some journalists and some black people; he sure doesn’t know how to fight in a debate, as even the socialist New York Times noted:
Mitt Romney just doesn’t know how to rumble. It comes across as more of a fumble. Sometimes a mumble. And ultimately a stumble.
The man is terrible when he’s on the attack. He looked utterly uncomfortable with confrontation, like someone running into a machete melee brandishing a paté knife.
Monday night, Romney needed to take Gingrich down a peg or two and remind the Republican voters of Florida and the rest of America that he is their best chance of being competitive with Barack Obama. He failed. He just doesn’t have it in him.
But that didn’t stop him from trying. Romney opened the debate doing his best. For one, he attacked Gingrich for his role as an “influence peddler” for Freddie Mac. The message could have worked, were it not for the messenger. Romney simply couldn’t deliver the lines in a way that felt natural.
Come on Mittens! It almost as if you are threatening Newt with withholding your country club vote for membership!
