Gallup Poll: Gingrich and Romney the most acceptable GOP candidates

Newt Gingrich (62%) and Mitt Romney (54%) are the only two candidates Republicans say would be acceptable presidential nominees from their party, emphasizing the degree to which the GOP race has narrowed down to these two men at this juncture. A majority of Republicans say each of the other six candidates measured would not be acceptable nominees.

Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Nov. 28-Dec. 1, 2011, with a sample of 464 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. The MOE is +/-6%.

I just can't believe the way holier-than-thou 'conservatives' have turned their principles on their heads in supporting Newt. The crowd that railed against the DC establishment is now choosing an absolute DC insider. What happened to the desire for a fresh, untainted outsider??? What happened to values? Like honesty and fidelity?

We now see that the tea party movement was only a sham.

@ Martha This poll doesn't reflect my views Martha. The two front runners are the least palatable to me. This is a great example of the progressives dumbing down the American populace turning them into 'units' of no moral values, no religion, no thinking skills, that are trapped in consumerism & instant gratification of a bunch of herd animals. We've already seen this as the herd jumps from one candidate to the next as orchestrated by the media. A perfect example of media manipulation. Now, we're told conservatives must support these two candidates as they are the only acceptable ones or electable ones. Does anyone have such powers or knowledge to decide in advance who is or is not electable? This is the stuff of crystal ball gazers, seers & oracles.

Better candidates are available currently. Why don't you consider them? Don't be afraid to leave the pack behind to find your own candidate. Your vote & others will decide who is or is not the nominee. Not the pundits, media, insiders, wordsmiths, pollsters or consultants.

"The crowd that railed against the DC establishment" Unfortunately, not all Conservatives did turn against the establishment in the first place.

"The two front runners are the least palatable to me." BINGO!

Any evangelical who supports Newt over Mitt is a total hypocite. And even Mormons know what Christ said about hypocrites. How on earth (or Heaven) can someone who claims to have "values" and follow the teachings of Christ suppport Newt. Newt has no idea what those teachings even are, much less ever followed any of them. What stunning hypocracy on the part of "creedal evangelical Christians." If you want to support Bachman or Santorum, fine. But Newt? You can't possibly be thinking rationally here. He's actually broken all the commandments Cain has only been accused of breaking.

The Tea Party was supposed to be about no having the status quo and insiders re-arranging the deck chairs. Newt is an insider and career politician. He is exactly what is wrong with DC. They go in as common citizens and within 2 years have doubled their net worth and have insider info on stocks, land deals, legislation that they can benefit from personally and sell their souls. Newt took 1.6 million from Freddie Mac. The same special interest that gave us the housing meltdown. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-16/gingrich-said-to-be-paid-at-least-1-6-million-by-freddie-mac.html


What you should know about Newton Gingrich~~~~
*Was for the Fairness Doctrine in 1987
*Announced he would be the nominee after first bounce in polls-arrogant and known flip flopper
*He has only 7 politicians endorsing him after 20+years in DC-not well liked
*He has never run anything bigger than the House and he was made to resign from it in shame
*Serial adulterer: Cheated on two wives and married his mistress (current wife)
*Newt has only 7 endorsements even after 20+ years as a career politician and DC insider
*Ethic charges while speaker of $300K
*Led charge to impeach Clinton while doing the same thing himself in his personal life with a staffer.
*Forced to resign from his speakership
*Took $1.6 million from Freddie Mac as a "consultant"
*Supports giving special consideration to illegals who have been here the longest.
*His support for a National Health Care mandate as opposed to a state only plan like Massachusetts care -- he planned to cash in on a National Plan.
*Converted to Catholicism after marrying his mistress who sings in the National Cathedral Choir, then co produced and marketed DVD's geared toward the Catholics, a huge voting block.
*Supported the Dream Act
*Supported Bush 2's plan for giving Amnesty to 11 million illegals
*His Global warming ad with Nancy Pelosi-Pelosi is neck deep in the Solyndra scandal and will blackmail Newt with what she knows


We can do better than Newt. He is the same old same old and has more skeletons than a graveyard.

The only candidate that has actually achieved in real life what we need to do in DC is Romney. He turned around 400+ failing companies, a bankrupted liberal dominated state and a corrupt and broke 2002 Olympics. He left Massachusetts with a $2 billion surplus and the Olympics with $100 million. He cut waste, consolidated programs and stopped unnecessary spending. Romney balanced the budgets and oversaw thousands of employees and volunteers. He created jobs and understands how to help America get back on track as he did it for his businesses, Massachusetts and the Olympics. Romney is NOT an insider. He is actually to the right of Reagan as Reagan was a democrat, passed Amnesty (thought borders would be regulated) and abortion legislation. Romney is a fiscal conservative. He has the broadest appeal and he can't be bought or intimidated.He is self-made and an honorable family man.

The country is center slightly right NOT conservative thanks to the invasion of people from other failed Socialists countries that will vote for whomever gives them the most perks. Romney is backed by key people who are movers and shaker. CA congressman Issa who subpoenaed Holder & gang, Sheriff Babeu of AZ, Christie, Rubio, Pawlenty and Jack Welch, Lee Iacocca, Jim Cramer, Trump, Sheriff Joe, Jim DeMint and many other solid conservatives have spoken highly of him in the past.

Obama Care is Hillary Care written by Soros' Apollo Foundation while he ran. IT IS NOT Massachusetts Care. That lie was repeated to damage Romney. Get the facts not the lies from left, right and bigots. http://americaneedsmitt.com/blog/obamacare-romneycare-truth/





Romney was top of his class at Harvard and has MBA and law degrees. He is often the smartest man in the room but he is humble. He has no drama or skeletons in his closet. Obama is expecting him to be the nominee and therefore will use the religion card and trumped up bull to hurt our best candidate. Don't let them lynch another candidate.

Get informed and realize that if we don't oust Obama, no other conservative will ever hold high office again. They have flooded the country with illegals who vote in our elections and have pushed the Communist Agenda via our education system. http://kitmantv.blogspot.com/2011/04/preview-agenda-grinding-down-america.html The Communists in charge of our country and New World Order dictators don't want an outsider to get in and break up their power or ruin their sweet deals. They are afraid of Romney and a few other Republican candidates because they are people of principles. Newt Gingrich is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. It is not just a think tank. The elite members are players in the New World Order and one government agenda.

Romney has made money in the stock market and used big banks to do big deal transactions. That does not make him a globalist, corrupt, insider or untrustworthy. Wall Street gives more to Obama than all the Republican candidates combined. Romney has hawks on his advising team and has banks as donors. The Paul camp tries to spin this as a liability. It simply means that Romney knows we live in a dangerous world UNLIKE PAUL and the banks he dealt with in the past on major deals like him. The banks are not the enemy. It is the lazy and corrupt Congress who does not do their job and reign in the Federal Reserve.

Democrats and Republicans are not one and the same. Democrats are in bed with radicals and Communists. They want to destroy our moral foundation and erase all traces of God from our culture and society. There are over 70 declared Socialists in the Congress right now.
