Rasmussen Poll: Gingrich loses 5 Points vs. Obama in 1 week

Head-To-Head: (results from November 30) 

Barack Obama 45% (43)
Newt Ginrich 40% (45%) (-5)
The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on December 6-7, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points
The full story is HERE.

How's Romney doing? Results from December 2: 

Barack Obama 42%
Mitt Romney 40% (-2)

PLEASE NOTE: When Gingrich was ahead of Obama in this poll last week, Fox News mentioned it SEVERAL TIMES, commenting how this changes the Romney electability argument. Think they'll mention this new poll now with GINGRICH 5 POINTS BEHIND OBAMA?

I remember the Gingrich electability argument with the Rasmussen Poll.

This proves like the ones before last week that last week's poll was an outlier.

I will email Fox News and ask them to comment on this. I suggest others that find Fox hypocritical do so as well.

Fox is only interested in their ratings and fanning the flames.

A 2nd Obama term is in their best interest.

Ellie, LOL. Breakin up is hard to do!

(Well, not really, because they've only been in love with Newt for about 2 weeks.)

I rarely watch Fox anymore. I serve the Net for the news. I am sick and tired of the anti-Romney bias at Fox News. The negative Romney slants are so glaring......

Really, they should report on this at Fox...but it will take several more like it before they do.

Does this mean that the Dems and Independents care more about character than the GOP? As I am Republican, I am embarrassed that my party would even consider electing a man as dispicable as Newt Gingrich.

Terrye,

"Really, they should report on this at Fox...but it will take several more like it before they do."

Rasmussen was the ONLY NATIONAL POLL I know of that had Newt beating Obama.

THEY DIDN'T WAIT to see if it was an outlier. This poll seems to point out that it was.

They should be JUST AS QUICK on this result as they were on the last one.

Bosman, their bias is glaring..all sorts of people are wondering what is happening with Fox.

yes .. Fox was breathless with "finally having a true contender" for Romney. But when one of the polls showed that "Tea Party" people polled were highly in favor of Romney .. they pounced, "What is WRONG with the Tea Party?? Is this an indication that the Tea Party has lost its STEAM?!!" Does this REALLY sound "Fair and Balanced?" It's sad when I have to change my radio to CNN from Fox to get some straight reporting -- watz w/ that?
