Romney pulling ahead in latest Florida Q poll

by George Bennett | January 27th, 2012

A Quinnipiac University poll conducted Tuesday through Thursday shows Mitt Romney pulling ahead of Newt Gingrich in advance of Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary.

Romney holds a 38-to-29 percent lead over Gingrich, turning back a Gingrich surge after his victory in Saturday’s South Carolina primary. The new poll finds Ron Paul at 14 percent and Rick Santorum at 12 percent.

Quinnipiac’s last poll showed a statistical tie between Romney and Gingrich, with Gingrich leading 40-34 among voters surveyed after the South Carolina vote.

The new survey of 580 likely GOP primary voters has a 4.1 percent margin of error. Check out the complete poll here.

    The United States has been ‘at war’ for over ten years. Mitt Romney has 5 sons who were of military age during this time. Not one, not a single one has volunteered to serve. Is this patriotism? They are all about making money in that family, pure and simple.

    Ron Paul is the only one that tells the truth. The others know this. If you have been watching the debates for a while you can see that the others are trying pickup Ron Paul’s ideas, explanations and policy. You might ask why? Simple he’s right. Ron predicted the housing bubble in every aspect in 2001. Which by the way was whent the bubble started. YouTube Ron Paul and see for yourself.

    Always tell the truth: Why not try to tell the whole truth. The Romneys are Mormon. A pacifist religion. If there were a draft they would be obsolved of combat duty because it is their religious belief. Do you have a problem with people not volunteering because of their Religous beliefs?

    Ron Paul claims to be against big government and liberty, but he isn’t. He is pro big government and his government is called Google-WalMart-ExxonMobil. He is talking about liberty but he has no clue about´╗┐ that. You little stupid sheeps you believe him, can’t help you, you have to learn. Let him in power and see what happens to your life yourself, until it does not hurt you, you will never learn that people that could have a chance to win elections in the US, will never be against big government

    Don’t expect democracy to prevail. Unelected officials have taken over Washington and are orchestrating the daily news. 90% of the comments and replies you’re reading online come from an NSA software program spamming the internet. COMMENTS ARE CREATED BEFORE THE STORY IS REPORTED. They are designed to generate a response and will engage people in real time.

    The oldest, first, highest, best, and most popular rated comments are all propaganda. They are conducting Psy-ops (psychological operations) for domestic spying. They have 1000′s of handles and are determined to bury the truth or attack anyone leaking it. There was a coup in 2008.

    We no longer have democracy. Sarah Palin was planted in the last election to throw it. The truth is deeper than you can imagine.

    Personally, I don’t understand why anyone calling themselves conservatives would vote for Barack Romney.

    Romney talks like a good conservative, but when you look at what he did as governor of Massachusetts, you’ll see he’s just as liberal as Ted Kennedy was.

    Romney’s actions as governor:

    RomneyCare = ObamaCare
    The Massachusetts Gun Ban
    Excessive Massachusetts fee/tax increases

    We need someone we can trust. May I suggest Dr Ron Paul?
