Minnesota looks like a toss up with any of the four candidates having some shot at
winning. Santorum holds a small edge there with 29% to 27% for Romney, 22% for
Gingrich, and 19% for Paul.


http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/ ... MO_205.pdf

Santorum 29%
Romney 27%
Gingrich 22%
Paul 19%

Big drop for Gingrich since the last poll. Santorum may be emerging as the last viable anti-Romney to get a try out.

Interesting. I wonder what it is about the Midwest that make them like Santorum more than other regions. I guess Pennsylvania borders the Midwest. Maybe it's th e manufacturing message.

Or it may just coincide with the dip in Gingrich's numbers - or perhaps a bit of both.

(Or maybe it's a full moon & Venus is in conjunction with Mars & I need to quit attempting to prognosticate this morning - oops, afternoon - when I'm still not quite cognizant yet? :lol: )

Newt hasnt been there yet because of being in Nevada. Hasnt the others already campaigned there? It is too late for Newt to do anything there now so he will probably come in last.

2 interesting tweets from PPP.

Pretty clear lead for Santorum in both Missouri polls we've done now. Minnesota will be the tie breaker tomorrow


Quote:
There really is some chance Romney will not even be in the top 2 in Minnesota


Not sure who is in 2nd place there but Santorum is in 1st. They will release more polls late tonight.

Santorum has been attacked all day today by Romney.

When Romney runs attack ads against anyone it's called "campaigning". When Newt runs them it's called a "vendetta". What do they call Santorum's ads?

Ah, so that was Romney's use for Pawlenty - big surprise. :roll:

I wonder if Gingrich supporters are rooting for & getting behind Santorum to block Romney's momentum in MO & MN? :twisted:

The new numbers in Minnesota have Santorum out to a solid lead:

Minnesota is Santorum 33, Romney 24, Gingrich 22, Paul 20. 35% still say they could change their minds though...

I wonder how Bachmann would be polling up there if she were still in? Or maybe Bachmann is to Minnesota as Perry is to Texas: not very popular in her own home state?

As I've said before I'm more anti-Romney then pro any particular candidate. So yes I'm definitely pulling for Santorum in Minnesota and Missouri. In fact I hope Minnesota is Santorum, Newt, and then Romney 3rd. That could really send a message. Even if you are a strong Newt supporter you should be cheering for these outcomes for the same reason I felt Santorum supporters should have been cheering for a strong Newt win in SC. If Santorum can pull 2 out 3 then it resets the race again. Romney would still be the clear odds on favorite, but there would be some doubt in his inevitability argument.

How does Romney have any credibility attacking another candidate on spending? How does he get away with this? Romneycare is a huge cost to his state plus he raised many "fees" while governor. I just don't get it. scratch


http://news.yahoo.com/romney-campaign-t ... 02718.html

Quote:
Romney's campaign acknowledged the race was close in Minnesota but believed the former Massachusetts governor could absorb a loss without a whole lot of damage.

Even so, Romney's campaign attempted to remind voters of Santorum's penchant for seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in government grants for his home state when he was a senator, a practice conservatives see as wasteful spending.

"We need a next president who's been strong and proven in fiscal and spending matters," said Romney supporter Tim Pawlenty, a former governor of Minnesota. Pawlenty endorsed Romney after dropping out of the race himself last year.

race412 has the polls up. Santorum leads by 9 in MN and by 13 in Missouri and actually cut the gap to 10 in colorado. Also, Newt is only leading Paul by 2 in MN and of course isnt on the ballot in Missouri. If Santorum goes 1-1-2 and Newt goes 4-3-3, we might finally see the end of Newt and a real 3 man race with just one anti-romney.

Is the primary today? If so, you wouldn't know it if you looked at Drudge's headlines. scratch :tinfoil

It definitely looks like Santorum will go 1-1-2 today but I doubt Gingrich will be dropping out. I wouldn't expect anyone to drop out until after Super Tuesday.

Fighting for 2nd in MN: Romney 24%, Newt 22%, Paul 20% with 35% open to change.

These guys are so close, that it's even possible Mitt could end up in 4th.

I think that's something we all can be hoping for.
