Monday Morning Presidential Poll Numbers

November 21, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

What a difference a week makes!

In the latest USA Today/Gallup poll, Newt Gingrich has pulled to the front of a crowded Republican field running for the 2012 presidential nomination.  Just a week ago, Gingrich was running in third behind both Herman Cain and Mitt Romney.  After a strong CNBC debate appearance and the continued fallout from Herman Cain’s personal issues, Gingrich vaulted himself to the head of the pack.

See the actual numbers below.

Gingrich and Romney are effectively tied in the race right now while Herman Cain seems to be falling off the radar quickly.

Polls pitting Republican candidates against incumbent President Barack Obama seem to suggest that Mitt Romney might be the only candidate that could give him a fight in November.  Romney trails Obama by less than two points in recent polling while other candidates like Gingrich, Cain and Ron Paul all trail Obama by at least 6 points.

A little sooner in the future is the Iowa caucuses and a recent Rasmussen poll indicates that it could be a blowout.  In their poll from November 15th, Gingrich leads Romney by a whopping 13 points with no other candidate in sight.  It remains to be seen if these results start to level out over time but if not we could very well by looking at a Gingrich/Obama battle in about a year’s time.

    I wish i gave a damn about politics – on either side of the border! I really should, considering the current state of the world. Thank God you’re here to care for me!
