Gallup: another day of collapse for Romney now Gingrich 31 (+3) Romney 27 (-2)

http://www.gallup.com/poll/election.aspx

This is the graphy from yesterday which has not yet been updated. With the new numbers Gingrich will be on top and Romney on the bottom. As it is a 5 day rolling poll and is still reflecting some pre SC numbers, expect more bad news for Romney tomorrow.

Gingrich's earlier gains was coming from drinking Santorum's milkshake (a mind mending frothy concoction) while now he is drinking Romney's milkshake and returning Romney to his more or less under 30 ceiling. All of this shows, IMO, that Romney has an iron ceiling of about 28% in the Republican Party and only went above that briefly when after it appeared that he had won both Iowa and New Hamshire was able to get some soft temporary support.

Now that it is clear that he didn't win Iowa and that his only win was his 'home' state the soft support has melted away and Romney is returning to the mid twenties which appeared to be strong before, only because there were 6 other candidates. Romney's people are seeing this as well and know that they have a very short fuse to upset the apple cart. If he doesn't he will lose the only advantage he ever had, that he is electable.

Romney is on the edge of a historic collapse.

2. It's official. These people have lost their fucking minds.

Newt Gingrich? Newt fucking Gingrich? Are you serious?!?

Well, if they actually want to commit political suicide by nominating this clown, who am I to complain?

6. WOW

 

Even though I can't stand Mittens, the rethugs have truely lost their minds. Noot is a tool, womanizer, cheat, liar, currupt etc etc. Majority of women voters would never vote for him in the GE. This is good for us so I'll take it, but rethugs are just pure rabid to choose Noot over Mittens.smh

7. I wonder how Romney's campaign and SuperPAC spending correlates...

...with that rise in popularity for Romney and that decline for Gingrich in the first two weeks of January. If i remember correctly, that's when Romney really started to ramp up the ad buys.
