Romney Stumbles in Recent Poll, Paul, Santorum Make Gains

Ron-Paul-NH

Former Governor Mitt Romney has stumbled downward in a recent Washington Times poll, but still holds on to strong lead garnering 38%. Ron Paul finished in second with 23.6% and Iowa Caucus winner Rick Santorum saw his support increase to 10.8%.

The hometown favorite Romney is expected to get 40%-50% of the vote and anything under would be a disappointment for his campaign.

Ron Paul 23.6%
Rick Santorum 10.8%

Jon Huntsman 8.0%

    Its Dr. Ron Paul & Mitt Romney after New Hampshire. Romney is an Obama clone so support Ron Paul and give America a real choice in November.

    HONESTY PEACE LIBERTY PROSPERITY
    RON PAUL 2012

    This poll is BOGUS. Buddy Roemer is showing 13% on the poll on this very web page. WHY WON’T THEY INCLUDE HIM ? MONEY!! They don’t want you to know where their money comes from. They are bought and sold! They don’t want him in the debates and they don’t want him in their polls. What is wrong with this picture?? So the REAL numbers in the polls will only show if he is included in the debates. People have to know who he is. Then let’s see the poll numbers. People of America, you know who owns this country? Not you. The special interests, the lobbyists for the big corporations, the banks. Buddy Roemer $100 campaign contribution limit. I’d like to see anyone else try and run a campaign that clean. That FREE TO LEAD.

      Laura, I agree Buddy should be included. in the ’08 run for the GOP candidate Ron Paul faced similar opposition. I am still a devouted Paul supporter, but I do wish more viable candidates, like Roemer were included. However, at the same time, it is easy to only take small contributions when not many people are offering big ones.
      Honestly though, I would really like to hear more about Roemer. From what I’ve read he is somewhere between Romney and Paul on most issues. Though, if you’re willing to halfway, you may as well go all the way and vote for Paul!
      Now that Bachman is out, I just hope Mr. Santorum drops out next. I can’t stand the guy (I’m a PA native). I’d prefer Pres. Obama.
      Thanks for reading my rant…
      Happy election year everyone!

    Ron Paul for President! He is a true leader who cares about America and the citizens of America. Lets work with Ron and cleanse this nation of corrupt politicians that play politics while this great nation suffers.

    ron paul is too far right, and his stand on iran is dangerous. iran is a real threat to build a nuclear bomb.

    ron paul is also an isolationist. i like santorum more.

    1. James

      I understand that Paul’s foreign policy is unconventional to what we currently have. With the information that Santorum’s been given, it would be rational to suggest sanctions on Iran.

      Military and CIA experts have come out and supported Paul in his assertion that it is blowback that has contributed to terrorism against the United States. As for Iran, this is an interesting article examining the current situation: http://deadlinelive.info/2011/12/14/so-you-like-ron-paul-except-on-foreign-policy-maybe-youd-better-watch-this-then/http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-05/hard-line-u-s-policy-tips-iran-toward-belligerence-vali-nasr.html

    2. Any

      So Iran is dangerous?? Or possible dangerous?? hmmm…I wonder what other countries in the MIDDLE EAST already have these nuclear bombs that you so speak of and are actually fighting each other…..hmmmm….do your research before you blame someone trying to do something with no reason. If everyone in your neighborhood had a gun wouldn’t you be inclined to get one too??

    3. Bunkie

      Check out Roemer. His focus on corruption might make him sound “liberal” but his answers to key issues are conservative and common sense.

    4. jim

      You are confused about his stand on Iran. He doesn’t want to enforce policies that would bring about another war. He wants to keep an eye on them without provoking another war in the middle east……jim

  6. Jeffrey Klotz

    Rather than a disclosure regrading the lack of inclusion, Buddy Roemer should be included… If a candidate merits a disclosure, doesn’t that indicate that he deserves a spot on the ballot?

    In the latest New Hampshire media stories,
    Jon Huntsman has moved up to third place in several stories. It sounds like Washington Post has bought wrong phone numbers or bad data .
    While I could understand Santorum as number two , but Huntsman has been moving up for days.
    So ,
    it sounds like problem phone calls,which is what happens when you do out of state random calls.

    Choose wisely GOP. We will be watching.

    Ron Paul 2012!!

  9. liberty&justice4all

    romney = the corperate norm

    santorum = bigoted christian

    paul = liberty and truth.

    hmm seems like an easy choice

  10. Montana for Paul

    I really would like to know how far Dr, Paul would be ahead if the mainstream media was just a small bit for Dr Paul?

  11. JHT

    Interesting about Roemer, I never even knew the guy was running. Paul, at this point, gets my vote and its mostly because of Romney’s incessant corporate political pacs. He’s out the door as far as I am concerned. If he gets the nomination I am voting for Obama 100%.

  12. jen

    The only chance that this country has to regain our freedom and liberties is Ron Paul! Vote for Dr Paul and give our children and grandchildren a chance!

  13. Todd

    I just hope that New Hampshire with their “live free or die” motto votes for the truth and liberty. Dr. Ron Paul is the only one who will give it to them.
