Gingrich Surges In Poll In NC

A new poll in North Carolina reflects the surge of Newt Gingrich in other polls as he seeks the Republican nomination for president.

The survey from Public Policy Polling says Gingrich has a dominant lead among Republican voters in North Carolina, with 51%. The closest candidate to Gingrich is Mitt Romney, with 14%. The rest of the candidates are in the single digits.

Public Policy Polling says Gingrich's momentum in North Carolina has picked up significantly. Five weeks ago, he had 22% of Republican support.

          what's your rebuttal--Citizeb commented " try someone with moral character,who doesn't lie to his own family,stop proving your sleaze again and again." I think it's good point..be it Republican or Democrat ?

      Brilliant like an Angel of light. Persausive ! Tempting ! Corrupt and evil. The Book of Revelation describes how Satan will be cast out of Heaven, down to the earth, having "great anger" and waging war against "those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus

      "Citizen" are you calling all of this a once great nation because it's OK to have affairs like so many of the past presidents have done, as long as they don't leave their wives and remarry? I certainly am not in favor of any of it but...I will go with the lesser of two evils!

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters finds Obama earning 45% of the vote to Gingrich’s 40%. Nine percent (9%) prefer some other candidate, while six percent (6%) are undecided.

      We are still in the primaries, get it, its no about you, Obama is threw already. Its about which GOP campigner takes the role. Its an anybody but Obama kind of year.... A generic Republican candidate now holds an eight-point advantage over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup for the week ending Sunday, December 4. This is the largest gap measured between the two since early September. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds the generic Republican earning 49% support to Obama's 41%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    OSOC ? "You ain't mad are you". How does it feel to be on the losing side? You adamantly posted years ago that Obaa would not get to be president. Are you still angry? Do you not like democracy ? Are we still upset? A blue dog Democrat ...no breeding at all ..just a mutt

      Hey, I cannot control libterds, they do what they do no matter how bad the consequences are. I guess going through life not understanding what the did to their kids with the debt must be very blissfull. All I can say is I didn't vote for the current president and do it with a straight face. I don't feel the guilt of debt and failed policies on me, its on you. Obimbo didn't win by much, just enough libterds voted him in thinking things would be better however, we all know how that turned out. I figured you didn't post anymore since you lost you job. Glad you took a job as a tadpole pond counter...hope and change, dope and mange...
