Open thread: Just how big will Romney’s NV win be, anyway?; Update: Gingrich to hold press conference after caucus tonight? Update: Entrance poll shows Romney winning a majority

posted at 11:00 am on February 4, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Nevada will open its caucus doors shortly and open the fifth statewide contest in the Republican presidential nomination sweepstakes. This one looks like more of a no-contest, though, as CBS reports this morning.  The short period of time between Florida’s primary and Nevada’s binding caucus didn’t leave much room for significant polling, but what polling did take place shows Mitt Romney in the lead by 20 or more points.  The real suspense will be whether Romney can get a majority as he did in 2008, and whether Gingrich can hold on for second place:

In three campaign appearances Friday, Romney did not even mention Newt Gingrich who, according to the latest poll, done by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, trails Romney in Nevada, 45 to 25 percent.

Hoping to make up ground on the last day of campaigning, Gingrich referred to Romney as “Obama-lite,” and once again seized on Romney’s recent gaffe that he is “not concerned about the very poor.”

“My goal,” said Gingrich, “is the exact opposite of Governor Romney — my goal is not to ignore or forget the poor. My goal is to turn the safety net into a trampoline to allow the poor to rise and be like the rest of us and have a job and buy a house,” he said to applause.

Gingrich has brought up Romney’s remark about the very poor at virtually every event, and it just doesn’t seem to have helped him.

CBS has the polling numbers in the video, and they’re daunting for the other candidates in the race.  Gingrich hasn’t done the kind of touring in Nevada necessary for caucus success, though, and lacks the organization to make up for it.  His team insisted that a second-place finish would be a moral victory — and it would result in garnering a share of the delegates, as Nevada allocates proportionally.  However, Ron Paul has a good organization in Nevada, and I think he has been underestimated in these polls.  It’s possible that Gingrich can underperform and Paul could surprise Gingrich, although Nevada might be the final state in which that can happen.

I’ll predict that Romney ends up with 52% of the vote, Gingrich 18%, Paul 16%, and Santorum 14%.

Update: National Journal reports that Newt Gingrich will hold a press conference rather than give a post-event speech tonight, raising a few eyebrows:

Instead of the traditional election night party, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will hold a press conference after the Nevada Caucus on Saturday, raising new speculation about his future in the race.

An e-mail sent to reporters on Saturday morning set the Las Vegas press conference for 11 p.m. to midnight Eastern time.

That’s 8-9 pm local time, which would be necessary because the caucuses in Clark County are staying open later than the rest of the state, but why a press conference?  That suggests that Gingrich will have some news to announce — and not just an endorsement.  Or it could just mean that Gingrich wants to mix it up with the press as a springboard for the Colorado caucus.

Update II: John Ziegler e-mails to suggest that Gingrich may just want to make sure he gets sufficient press coverage — and supporters sticking around — after the caucuses conclude.

Update III, 7 pm ET: They have just started counting the ballots in Nevada, but if CNN’s exit polling is accurate, Romney won a majority.  He won 57% of women and 53% of men, which means that Romney will finish above 50%, again assuming the exit poll holds up.

Romney won all of the age demos except 17-29YOs, which he lost by only two points to Ron Paul.  He won every education demo, and he won every income demo except under-$30K, which Paul won by just one point.  Paul won independents by 17 points, but Romney won Republicans with a 61/20 win over Newt Gingrich.  Romney also won all three ideological categories, including “very conservative,” by majorities; Gingrich only got 24% of the very conservative vote.  He got 74% of the vote for those whose most important candidate quality was the ability to beat Obama, 55% of those who are looking for the right experience, and 56% of those looking for strong moral character.  On that last category, Gingrich got 1%.

This one’s a wipeout, and I’d guess that Gingrich gets no more than 19% when the votes are totaled, again assuming the exit poll is accurate.

Update IV: I changed the headline; this is an entrance poll, not an exit poll.  That might make the results a little less reliable, if voters changed their minds in the caucusing.

If I never went to school at the University of Nebraska (Lincoln) nor any of my children have, then why would I be expected to support the Huskers?

Plus, I spent most of my adult life outside of Nebraska.

As to Boomer_Sooner, I understand where he is coming from. I imagine he is a OK grad and they have that mind control thing in place where he was forced to listen to Bob Stoops half-time pep talks in his sleep. So, him I can forgive.

Plus, why do you keep accusing me of hating people? I disagree with many, stay away from some, have contempt for some, but hate no one.

You should concentrate on bringing Boomer_Sooner back to reality. Remind him that the Pac-12 said, “Take a hike.” Help him get over the bowl games losses to Boise State and West Virginia. The guy is crying out for help. Go to him.

apocalypse

I believe that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered and occasions for sin” and I believe that abortion is premeditated murder.

Horace on February 4, 2012 at 11:12 PM

Abortion and homosexuality are sin according to Scripture and I am glad you recognize this.

I also believe that God said, “I will have mercy upon whom I will have mercy” and, to Job from the whirlwind, “Who are you to question my ways? My ways are not your ways.”

These verses have nothing to do with whether God blesses a nation that forget Him.

So, I am hesitant in predicting whether or not God will bless or not bless America.

You shouldn’t hesitate. The Bible clearly says “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17

So that I understand this, Romneycare was the only one to spend money in Nevada, have a statewide organization, have all the elected state officals on his side and he pulled in a grand total of, way for it, 13,500 votes.

Calling all Mittbots, the population of Nevada is 2.643 million. Your boy got 13,500 votes. Wow, what an impressive win. sarc!

So sad to see an man sink to such lows. Just sad.

Oh and there is more coming out about him I hear… ethics violations… co ordinating with Super pacs is a no no… being sued by the guy whose foot he ordered broken… yeah not looking good for him…

so sad.

But Mitt is really getting great at these celebration speeches… he had a new one tonight… good job Mitt!

But do not ever believe that I have “irrational hatred” for Mitt, or any other GOP candidate…

THAT is reserved for Obowma and what he has done and is doing to this Country.

The only difference is that if Mittens wins the GOP nominee, I will, with prejudice, vote for him and encourage other to do so…

… What I see in Paul and some Mitten supporters is that they will go home, turn out the lights, and suck their thumbs in protest instead of voting for Newt.

I would like to be proven wrong…

Seven Percent Solution on February 5, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Of course Mitt will lose Missouri… it was legal to kill Mormons in Missouri until 1975! You could almost see the mobs in Newt’s eyes… the torches…tar feathers… how dare Mormons vote! How dare they!!! The mobites will probably play it cool though and vote for Santorum… Newt is showing his mental health problems.

But Mitt should do pretty well everywhere else this month… MN might be a little sticky… but he won it last time… even though the polls said he wouldn’t.

And dforston – I made it through the first recent open registration, but I’ve read the comments on HA for a looooong time.

I miss Cindy. :(

Mitt Romney will destroy the republican party. Bob Dole 1996. Conservatives will return the favor by giving Romney the middle finger if he is the nominee.

CoolChange80 on February 5, 2012 at 12:01 AM

Who Won?

Del Dolemonte on February 4, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Obama.

Midwestprincesse on February 4, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Isn’t that the truth!

aryeung on February 5, 2012 at 12:02 AM

I backed into being an Aggie and they jumped ship for a conference that is liable to use them as a doormat for a long time.

cozmo on February 4, 2012 at 11:55 PM

A very, very long time.

And Mizzou whupped their butts two years in a row.

Plus, Boomer_Sooner has been Stoopsized. Help him back to the light!
Tell him the Mid-American Conference has OK at the top of their “Most Wanted” list. Have you no compassion?

Oh, and please provide links to my “hatin’” comments on this thread. Gettin’ late, so I’ll check back tomorrow.

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish!

Wrong. Mitt’s an embarassment.

dforston on February 4, 2012 at 11:55 PM

After that presser, you must be having several cocktails.

You forgot the gilled one.

Bmore on February 5, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Of course Mitt will lose Missouri… it was legal to kill Mormons in Missouri until 1975! petunia on February 5, 2012 at 12:01 AM

Please. Give it a rest.

Stray Cat on February 5, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Oh yeah I’m going to vote for the crazy man… nope. We have nukes… and you saw how unstable newt is right there in front of you… no this man can not have the power to start a nuclear war.

petunia on February 5, 2012 at 12:03 AM

I believe Jesus Christ is the only way to God! There’s no other way! Now it doesn’t matter if you’re a Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, homosexual or whatever… you have the right to be President. That’s not the issue. But there’s no way you can get to God but through Jesus Christ and if you want God to bless America it’s not by murdering millions of babies every year, promoting sodomy as a normal alternative lifestyle and through worshipping false idols.

Wow, what a wonderful juxtaposition against my own beliefs. I don’t believe really any of that except the abortion part. I think that’s abhorrent, but indeed to god to judge, after all, every Sunday school class I ever went to told me he was pro-choice. Free will. Your choice whether to follow or not, and not your job to judge. So I don’t get one. And think they should be outlawed past the first trimester. Beyond that. I don’t think god’s an a**hole, so I pretty much disregard the rest of your take.

Boomer_Sooner on February 4, 2012 at 11:16 PM

You don’t realize it but you’re in great danger… If your heart stopped beating you will open your eyes in HELL… no horror movie could describe your fright

Midwestprincesse on February 5, 2012 at 12:01 AM

Did she go somewhere?

aryeung on February 5, 2012 at 12:03 AM

Don’t know what to make of that Fox News ‘analysis.’ Ever since the Florida primary I’ve been hearing them say that Nevada’s Mormon population was going to heavily favor Romney. Gingrich comes out and says Romney got the Mormon vote and they all go into cardiac arrest.

What?

shaloma on February 5, 2012 at 12:03 AM

Evidently not.

Bret Baier is now hammering him.

JPeterman on February 4, 2012 at 11:40 PM

I had to turn it off – I couldn’t watch it anymore.

gophergirl on February 4, 2012 at 11:44 PM

Lately CNN sounds more reasonable, I don’t watch FNC anymore.

evergreenland on February 5, 2012 at 12:03 AM

truth hurts?

See ya tomorrow on the big day I hope.

Bmore on February 5, 2012 at 12:04 AM

But Mitt is really getting great at these celebration speeches… he had a new one tonight… good job Mitt!

petunia on February 4, 2012 at 11:56 PM

Well he’s getting a lot of practice!

Stray Cat on February 4, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Gosh, is that your little cry for attention? Do I have to call you all wet again? I thought the first time was sufficient. It’s OK, you can vote for the sad, angry little man at the presser. I don’t mind.

Annoy Sarah Palin, vote Mitt!

MJBrutus on February 5, 2012 at 12:04 AM

And this is exactly why he shouldn’t be the nominee.

Dark Star on February 4, 2012 at 11:59 PM

The only candidate that should be a candidate is Santorum.

All of the candidates are HORRIBLE. That is why Mitt supporters are a joke.

Midwestprincesse on February 5, 2012 at 12:04 AM

Newt, Newt, Newt. Sigghhh. So now I’m down to supporting Romney. So be it.

independentvoice on February 4, 2012 at 11:56 PM

Welcome to the team. We are a tired, pained but still determined bunch. Palinista by way of the Cain Train here, but I’m all about the (Anybody But) O.

” it was legal to kill Mormons in Missouri until 1975″

I started law school at Mizzou in 1974. Must have missed the class in which that was covered.

Horace on February 5, 2012 at 12:04 AM

Wrong. Mitt’s an embarassment.

dforston on February 4, 2012 at 11:55 PM

Everyone on the Fox News panel disagrees.

Yep, how could I forget her…easily.

The most over the edge Romney nutballs tend to be women.
