I'm curious how you are still showing a single digit lead when several other polling companies now have it well into double digits?

Obama 2012

I guess I'm grasping for straws here because the fantasy of Gingrich as the GOP nominee is just too good to be true --- but what I don't get is why we're supposed to be counting Gingrich out because he lost Florida (as it appears he will) - but if the reverse were true (if Romney lost) we would be talking about the long fight ahead (with many people still assuming Romney would win the nomination in the end...)

I mean... I do understand the difference, don't get me wrong. But it just seems a bit quick to count out Gingrich ... what if Santorum drops out and endorses Gingrich? ... what if the RomneyCare attacks start to work? I mean...

Let me just say I was one of the few people who predicted the first Gingrich comeback ... and I really think he may make another one. I don't think this is over yet. /wishfulthinking

(To be clear - I'm not afraid of Obama vs. Romney ... I think Obama will win ... I just think Gingrich would be a true disaster.)


Obama 2012,

You guys are terrified of Newt, admit it.


I am a Perry supporter and I still think he was the best candidate with the three legs of the stool. But the 4 remaining candidates are less than inspiring. But if anyone thinks Mittens is the most electable they are going to be in for a real shocker if he is running up against Obama. Mittens with all his money that he paid people off to endorse him (corruption is what I call that)is being set up by Obama and his minions to take a big fall and that is what the R establishment will get from pushing a moderate down our throats again.


inaccurate poll... margin was off by 6 points.

even had the cubans going for Gingrich which was largely the opposite

Edward Adams

yes PPP blew it...they and Inside Advantage


PPP blew it because they are pro-Newt as a Obama-Gingrich race would be much easier.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them
