Gallup: Romney lead “collapsing” to 10 points nationally

posted at 1:20 pm on January 20, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

This certainly isn’t the meme a candidate wants the day before a critical primary:

Gallup’s Editor-in-chief Frank Newport appeared on MSNBC to talk about the polling organization’s national tracking poll of the GOP primary race, which is changing rapidly in the last few days of the campaign for South Carolina. Newport said when their new data comes out at 1 pm eastern, “…we’ll see this gap closing more. Romney was up 23 points over Newt Gingrich. Now it will be down about ten points, so clearly things are collapsing.” …

“We have seen more movement, more roller coaster kind of effect this year than any other Republican primary in our history of tracking,” Newport said. “I think anything is possible. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility if Romney recovers. We’ll wait and see.”

So how much did the gap close in today’s 1 pm report? This much:

That’s certainly an ugly trend for Romney, and a sign of hope for Gingrich.  There are, however, a couple of things to keep in mind about this poll.  First, it’s among registered voters, not likely voters, which means that the trends are probably solid but not the figures; likely voter models are more predictive.  Second, the ABC interview with Marianne Gingrich didn’t air until after the last surveys in this tracking poll took place.  It’s entirely possible that the personal-baggage eruption might have some of Gingrich’s new support rethinking that choice, especially since it appeared in two polls yesterday that evangelicals comprised a large part of that swing.

Nevertheless, the shift has Team Romney worried, and they’re seeing at least some part of it in their own internal polling.  CNN reports today that they’re busy resetting expectations in South Carolina:

With Newt Gingrich creeping up in the polls and potentially on the cusp of a South Carolina victory, one of Mitt Romney’s senior advisers sought to change expectations ahead of Saturdays’ pivotal presidential primary.

Though his campaign has competed aggressively in the state and is hungry for a win here, Romney strategist Stuart Stevens said the idea of a loss to Gingrich on Saturday is not far-fetched. …

“The idea should be does he have a chance in South Carolina,” Stevens claimed.

When it was noted that Romney had a 10-point lead over Gingrich as recently as Tuesday, Stevens shook his head.

“These things were always going to close,” he said. “I think it’s very competitive. I think it’s a four-way race. The whole race is very fluid.”

A 10-point lead in a four-man race is still a substantial margin, but it’s the momentum that should worry Romney.  His two relatively poor debate performances this week — almost entirely caused by his mishandling of the tax-return issue — has to be a big part of the momentum, which means that they can correct it if Mitt Romney can recover on the question.  That may be too late for South Carolina, but he needs to get his act together for Florida.  Romney was expected to have it tough tomorrow, but he was expected to cruise in Florida.  A tight race there will shake confidence in his ability to close the deal, and that’s another meme that Romney can ill afford now.

Update: Er … Romney’s lead is collapsing to 10 points, not his support.  I fixed the headline.  Big thanks to the AJC’s Kyle Wingfield for pointing that out.  Also, changed “since” to “in today’s” above the graph.  And then I got myself more coffee …

What laws of economics requires government to grow as population grows? While limited growth might be necessary it is the unlimited growth that wasn’t restrained that I am talking about. What good is a balanced budget every year if it takes ever more resources to balance it. So while balancing the budget is a good in the sense we stop growing the debt it is not the ultimate good if it allows government to continue to consume increasing amounts of resources.

chemman on January 20, 2012 at 2:49 PM

I never said there was a “law”, just the fact that in our nations history, except for one year, the government grew.
So I guess my relying on 200 years of history isn’t a law, but if I was a gambling man, I would say it would be about a 220 to one odds that it will continue to grow…and if you had read my post I stated

It’s not growing the government, that will happen as our country grows, it’s managing it within limits…and that has not been done for decades.
I think each of the candidates will do their best to manage the growth

You might try reading a post before commenting on it, since you are restating what I did, limiting growth and managing growth within limits is essentially the same…you are arguing against yourself which is indeed strange.

I’m not casting any stones, but it certainly doesn’t mean I want to choose somebody like that to represent me.

Nice straw man though.

Newt wins, and this party can no longer call itself the party of morals.

If you choose somebody like that to represent you, it reflects on your own morals and judge of character. If Newt had truly changed his heart he would know that he’s not in a position to represent the party due to optics. He really wants to be president though, so it won’t stop him from dragging the whole party through the mud and landing us in another 4 years of Obama (after us selling our soul for him).

Good points. I am all for forgiveness BUT when a man is on his third wife for having multiple affairs…come on! You have to be HONEST with yourself and say that is jacked up.

I forgive Newt and anyone else for making a mistake once but part of asking and receiving forgiveness is to FORSAKE that sin and never do it again…he seems to want to say forgive me but I am going to do it again…and again…

Gingrich’s problem is himself and his ego…errr…grandiose ego.

MTLassen on January 20, 2012 at 3:23 PM

Right then, because of course it’s so hard to manage the takeover of a state in a conservative manner after the Reagan Wave right?

Or to ride on a wave of voter discontent that was already forming well before writing a party platform for the midterm, formed not because of Republican action by rather reaction to Democratic action.

Practically all of his colleagues mention him being a terrible leader, and his ego and pettiness while int he office backs this up. Also, as just one member of the Congress, he’s just as responsible for the successes of the 1994 Congress as any of the other duly election hundreds of Republicans who were a part of this.

If anything, Gingrich’s behavior was a drag on Republican ability, only stemmied because Clinton, through Morris’ advising, realized he couldn’t afford to be to the left of the electorate and moved right. He could’ve easily lead Newt around the nose, but felt that his own re-election was more important.

Even with the accomplishments, Republicans still lost significant representation, although not their majority, in the 1996 and 1998 elections, primarily on the backs of ads brought to you by the DNC, but made possible by Newt Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich was then kicked out of his own caucus by fellow Republicans.

Say what you will, but facts are facts. Newt was a tool to do some good things, but he was hardly alone, he hardly made the wave that carried him into stardom, and once he got his spotlight, he was hardly effective in his leadership.

WealthofNations on January 20, 2012 at 3:31 PM

Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to embrace somebody as your leader, it means you have to personally forgive them.

If somebody steals from your back account, you can forgive them but it doesn’t mean you should give them your account number. It certainly doesn’t mean you should hold that person up as your political representative when you claim to value honesty.

This party sells its soul if it elects Gingrich, and I’ll be no part of that.

csdeven on January 20, 2012 at 3:39 PM

What do your colleagues say about you, Speaker Gingrich?:

ouse Speaker John Boehner, while saying publicly that Gingrich is a “longtime friend,” has a rocky history with the man he once served alongside. Another former colleague, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told Fox News last month that he finds Gingrich’s leadership “lacking.”

former Rep. Susan Molinari, who described Gingrich’s style as “leadership by chaos.”

Jim Talent, a former representative and senator from Missouri, said that Gingrich would “blindside” members of his party with his “outrageous comments.”

“It’s a problem when your own leader is the biggest political problem that you’re dealing with, which is why we removed him as the speaker,” he said in the ad.

Rick Santorum, who is trying to claw his way back into the top tier, reminded Gingrich of that past on the debate stage Thursday night.

“Four years into his speakership, he was thrown out by the conservatives. There was a coup against him in three,” Santorum said. “It was an idea a minute, no discipline, no ability to be able to pull things together.”

hmmm…something to think about…and while we are thinking about this, how do you think the Obama machine is going to attack Gingrich? The possibilities are endless. This is one of THE reasons we lost in ’96 and in ’98 because the Clintons did the same thing and OUR own party tossed the Speaker out, the ONLY ONE in history.

kirkbride on January 20, 2012 at 3:56 PM

I want to make a point about Gingrich referencing this article:

The Associated Press
CHARLESTON, S.C.—Newt Gingrich has cancelled a campaign appearance in South Carolina because of poor attendance.

The Republican presidential candidate was scheduled to speak to the Southern Republican Leadership on Friday. But a campaign spokesman told reporters that he would no longer be appearing due to poor attendance.

This shows the lack of strength Gingrich’s campaign has and VA, OH, and other yet to file States is also an example that Gingrich is a truly Debate candidate. He has NO support funding-wise, organization-wise, and is competing by chaos and TV one-liners.

I am serious here that he has NOT won one state and has finished what fourth consistently and IS ONLY getting press by making snappy one liners at these debates and is the reason why he said as far as regrets or changes he would make is he would have gone the internet TOTALLY…he realizes that he cannot win and is trying to ride the FREE airwaves of the debates and why he constantly is calling for these debates because he has NO ORGANIZATION.

This is the guy that we are thinking of considering for POTUS? Someone that has no basic infrastructure and organization NATIONWIDE to be our POTUS. THIS. is why so many current and former members do not support him. They’ve been to this rodeo before with him.

We’re not asking you to abandon your way of viewing morality, if you don’t want to go with Newt, that’s fine. But don’t try to tell me that just because I think Newt’s solutions are better for the country, that makes me immoral. I may have a different view of forgiveness and Newt has never said what he did was right.

as a conservative I am all for forgiving Gingrich ONCE for adultery, but to do it over and over again and for 6 years with her! I cannot look at Calista without thinking HOW she met Gingrich. I cannot believe others ON OUR SIDE can just whitewash that over as well. I may be wrong but it is difficult to look at her any other way.

weak on immigration and abortion? He has ALWAYS stated build the fence and have everyone leave the country and get in the back of the line. He also VOTED for his State Troopers to pick up and turnover to ICE all illegals BEFORE this was even the furor in the country, also voted for English immersion in schools. So he is NOT weak on immigration as you must be confusing him with someone else. On abortion as a Governor, when it counts on the record, he has voted for pro-life bills across the board and vetoed anything remotely close to abortion!

ON a side note, I find this interesting that it appears that UNLESS there are HUGE crowds there to bask in Gingrich’s glory he will not do media appearances…even though Paul and Santorum spoke. Romney was in another part of the state.

Earlier, Gingrich scrapped an appearance at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference due to what campaign aides said was poor attendance. Conference organizers blamed a scheduling conflict.

Longterm Gingrich is going to run into problems because HE KNOWS that he does not have the funding organization to compete. He HAS NOT PREPARED for the Presidency which should speak volumes about him as a “leader” and give people pause of do we really want to elect a guy that is not prepared to be POTUS…but, oh yeah, I can really say some great lines at a debate and get the crowd revved up.
