Oh my: Gingrich’s lead increasing in final hours before South Carolina vote? Update: Gingrich by 14

posted at 10:05 pm on January 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

Normally I wouldn’t build a post around a single tweet but this one from PPP is too tantalizing to ignore. Polls open in SC tomorrow bright and early at 7 a.m.:

Newt posted his best numbers of our 3 day field period tonight

On Wednesday, they found Gingrich with a six-point lead. Yesterday they found the same. Today it’s … greater than six, although they haven’t posted the exact numbers yet. Jed Lewison of Daily Kos, which uses PPP as its pollster, guesses it’s now Newt by nine or 10 points, which makes sense if you assume another little boost from last night’s debate plus Perry dropping out and endorsing Gingrich. The exact numbers are less important, though, than the fact that Newt’s apparently putting distance between himself and Romney as time runs out. Hard to see how he doesn’t win now — dirty tricks notwithstanding. (He’s at 82 percent on InTrade, up more than 10 points from this afternoon.)

Via Newsbusters, here’s Scarborough claiming that all of the “conservative movers and shakers” he’s spoken to recently are angling for a brokered convention. You know who that benefits? Right: Ron Paul. Exit quotation from Dan McLaughlin: “Basically, if Romney sees Newt’s shadow tomorrow, it means six more weeks of primaries.”

Update: The numbers are out. Over the course of three days, his lead averaged out to nine points. But tonight? Double digits:

Gingrich’s lead has actually increased in the wake of his ex-wife’s controversial interview with ABC. Although one night poll results should always be interpreted with caution, he led the final night of the field period by a 40-26 margin. One thing that continues to work to his advantage are the debates. 60% of primary voters report having watched the one last night, and Gingrich has a 46-23 lead with those folks.

The other reason his ex-wife’s interview isn’t causing him much trouble is that there’s a lot of skepticism about it. Only 31% of voters say they think her accusations are true while 35% think they are false and 34% are unsure. 51% of voters say that they have ‘no concerns’ about what came out in the interview.

However:

piece today for Huffington Post about ‘expecting the unexpected’ tomorrow is well worth a read. Gingrich will probably win tomorrow- but there’s a higher than normal chance for a surprise given everything that’s gone down in the last 48 hours.

So if PPP has Newt ahead this means he’s the candidate the Dems want to run against, right?

Mark1971 on January 20, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Newt keeps showing that he is the one who can take the fight to Obama. Every candidate who has risen in the polls has done it when he showed that he was willing to fight.

What’s your point?

That he’s eking out a victory on his strongest ground, and Mitt Romney’s weakest, before he gets absolutely steamrolled in Florida, as well as every other state in which a televised debate doesn’t immediately precede the election process?

If Newt wins SC, good for him. Iowa’s crapshoot of an elections process has made their caucus a detriment to the party, and True Conservatives have been trying their damnedest to delegitimize New Hampshire’s primary because Romney won it in a walk. Let’s go three-for-three.

Obama wants to go against Newt because he will use Pelosi to unseal the ethics records from Newts speaker days. Obama will defeat Newt like he defeated Jack Ryan in Illonios.

tdmaher3 on January 20, 2012 at 10:15 PM

Looks like it could be Newt’s night. Anything that amps up this race is a good thang. I don’t really trust Newt given his propensity to say what he thinks we want to hear. The guy has more baggage than the LA-X and I’m not sure that he can win the critical 15% of center voters. Romney is a safer bet to beat Obama but he needs to show some testosterone. If Newt wins tomorrow, Mitt will have to hit as well as catch the fastball. Should be interesting.

The hypocrisy is amazing here. When Mitt was ahead and we were all told Romney was the nominee by these same “Movers & shakers”, they told us a brokered convention would NEVER happen, and those who spoke of it were wishful thinkers and idiots.

Now that Mitt is looking vulnerable, the same people are mumbling about brokered conventions.

This article should be taken down. PPP is an unreliable Dem firm, and frankly the coverage on FNC tonight indicates that Romney stabilized or improved today.

Going forward, I will say this: Mitt is going to stop participating in these asinine debates – too many and ceding ridiculous free media to underfunded opponents.

There may be 1 debate in FL but not 2. Let Newt and Rick self-fund their own media. They can’t. FL costs $2 million per week for 11 media markets. Moreover, early voting has been underway in FL for over a week, and Mitt has been stashing a tremendous lead.

El_Terrible on January 20, 2012 at 10:24 PM

There is no establishment-ordained candidate who can hop in this late and wrap up the nomination (well, maybe Christie, but that’s not happening). I like Daniels, I would prefer him over Newt or Mitt, but he is the type of candidate who would have had to get in a lot earlier to get traction… let’s face it, Daniels isn’t going to suddenly win over converts based on his viscerally-likeable personality and his gut-level ability to connect with voters. He’s a slow-and-steady-wins-the-race type of guy– its too late for him.

Mitt Romney’s lead ‘collapsing’ as Newt Gingrich surges
Fri Jan 19 2012
*****************

CHARLESTON, S.C.—Crunch time arrived in South Carolina with more grim news for Mitt Romney, whose nationwide lead is “collapsing” against a surging Newt Gingrich in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to new Gallup polling data.

The former Massachusetts governor played down expectations as South Carolinians readied to vote in Saturday’s crucial primary, acknowledging that what was seen as an easy win barely a week ago now may slip through his fingers.

The broader U.S. picture, meanwhile, suggests the traction former House speaker Gingrich gained in two feisty debate performances this week is beginning to translate coast to coast.

Romney’s lead over Gingrich shrank nationally from 23 percentage points to 10 points in the past five days, prompting Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport to predict the gap would narrow further still.

“Clearly, things are collapsing,” Newport told MSNBC.

Normally I wouldn’t build a post around a single tweet but this one from PPP is too tantalizing to ignore

How predictable, how pathetic………..

I hear he’s an expert on toes.

Aw geez, I was hoping nobody would go there. ick!

Flora Duh on January 20, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Sorry, but toes is all he knows. :)

That’s because he will be. Gingrich wins in his own backyard. So what? That’s what he was always expected to do.

Who in the hell does the Newt vote for when he gets home to Virginia?

JPeterman on January 20, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Gotta give it to Newt. Was left for dead not once but TWICE in this campaign and still came back on the sheer force of his personality and debating skills.

LMAO!! He gotz mad skilz, huh? Maybe Michael Moore is the wind beneath his wings. Or maybe he should start advocating marital infidelity fulltime since his supporters suddenly are cool with that.

And the wife? Oh Good Lord, the hideous mistress-turned-wife. Who in their right mind would send her to live in the People’s House? Not 51% of the American voters, that’s for damn sure.

Rational Thought on January 20, 2012 at 10:26 PM

I’d be interested to see what his current mistress looks like.

if we just care about beating bho and not about conservatism why don’t we just nominate hillary. she can write a book and tell us how conservative she is.

It doesn’t.

This does.

Fox News, 1/12-1/14:
Obama, fav/unfav, 51%/46%, +5
Romney, fav/unfav, 45%/38%, +7
Gingrich, fav/unfav, 27%/56%, -29

Unpopular folks don’t get elected president.
