Bad Numbers For Obama In New Q Poll

By: Quinnipiac Poll
By: Quinnipiac Poll

December 8, 2011 -

Newt Gingrich has opened up a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in Florida’s Republican primary, a new Quinnipiac University poll says.

Gingrich is the preferred candidate of 35 percent of Republicans in the poll. Romney is favored by 22 percent. Ron Paul is a distant third at 8 percent. The poll, conducted Nov. 28-Dec. 5, has a 4.3 percent margin of error. A month ago, Herman Cain topped the GOP field in Florida with 27 percent, followed by Romney’s 21 percent and Gingrich’s 17 percent.

At the same stage four years ago, Quinnipiac’s polling showed Rudy Giuliani with an 18-point lead in Florida while eventual Florida winner and GOP nominee John McCain was a distant fourth.

The newest poll suggests Romney is a slightly stronger candidate than Gingrich in a general election matchup against President Obama. Romney holds a 45-to-42 percent lead over Obama among all Florida voters, while Obama tops Gingrich by a 46-to-44 percent margin. The general election poll of Floridians has a 2.8 percent margin of error.

Fifty-four percent of Floridians disapprove of the way Obama is doing his job, with 41 percent approving. Gov. Rick Scott has a 52 percent disapproval score, with 33 percent approving.

    Obama is what happens when you allow illegals, idiots, and welfare recipients the right to vote.

      Breeze is a proud, pious Christian and leads by example. He believes in Satan, thumps his Bible, addresses women as Jezebel.

        See above. Case in point. I don't thump my bible, I read it. Yes, I believe in Satan, and yes I believe you are one of his favorite little helpers.

          Thank you Breeze for thinking of us down here in hell. You know, the conditions are pretty bad here and we don't ever get anyone from the ACLU coming through contrary to what people think. Anyway, I thought maybe you could have a chat with god and see if the temp could be turned down just a bit. It's really hot! Another thing too: if god is all powerful, why doesn't he or she just do away with Mr. S? It sure would give all us little helper here a break. Thanks.

    Somebody should talk about how much Anonymous posts every day. Anonymous is by far the most prolific poster. There is also a large number of one time posters with very clever, according to them, original names. The generally low caliber of comments on this board is attributable to the ability to post anonymously and the ability not to register and have to "own" your comments.

      "Somebody should talk about how much Anonymous posts every day. Anonymous is by far the most prolific poster." We thought that was your self appointed duty, as so many of your posts are concerning that very subject. "There is also a large number of one time posters with very clever, according to them, original names." What poster has made mention of how clever their name was? " The generally low caliber of comments on this board is attributable to the ability to post anonymously and the ability not to register and have to "own" your comments." The internet is a big place. If someone is not satisfied with a particular website, they are free to go elsewhere. (Notice that all your questions were answered, without the use of offensive slurs, without attacking your intelligence, and no attempt was made to denigrate an entire group of people just because we disagree. Civil conservation is still possible.)

    General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year, but paid no taxes - the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the united States. So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs. I guess the President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs. If this doesn't show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I don't know what does....and can you imagine? Gerry supports this guy.

    The United States leadership is a worldwide joke. Get this fool out of the White House. How can so many people approve of a man who can not lead, has no economic policy knowledge, does not understand international relations and raised our deficit almost to our GDP.

    One of the most important demographic groups is ignorant, white, aggrieved, drooling, Tea Party crackers. How is Obama doing among that group?

      Not as well as with the stupid, chip on the shoulder, welfare plantation black group. I would have used a more derogatory racial descriptor but WCTV only allows whites to be abused in that fashion.

        All whites don't drool and all whites aren't aggrieved and all whites aren't crackers and all whites aren't ignorant. All Tea Partiers drool and all Tea Partiers are ignorant and all Tea Partiers are aggrieved and all Tea Partiers are crackers, even those from New York City and California. Also, all Tea Partiers are white except for about a dozen.

          @GBA You don't know what "born with a silver spoon in your mouth" means. It means born rich. GW Bush was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Nelson Rockefeller was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Nobody ever talks about people born with silver spoons and entitlements in the same sentence.

          Speaking of being aggrieved, I'd rather number myself among the Tea Party than the Flea Party. Don't you have some place to occupy Geraldine? Your wasting valuable bandwidth here. The Tea Party is a huge threat to you isn't it? They want to stop leeches like you from sucking the life blood out of this country.

        Breeze, I'm surprised at you. I thought you were all christiany, but those are some nasty words there. You better go pray or something. I am really disappointed in you.

          You'll get over it. You should try reading the things Jesus had to say to the pharisees. Then you might want to read in Revelation what he is going to do to unbelievers when he returns. If my guess is right, you'll then accuse him of being nasty too.

    If he only played the saxophone. I'm an old school redneck and I like him. Do you really think there is anyone who has the $$ to be President that is honest? Don't be a big dummy, they are all scum.

    Newt Gingrich can win the debates but he will NOT win the national election. Mitt Romney is the only Republican candidate that consistently wins against a match up with Pres. Obama. Consider this fact before you throw away your vote for Newt Gingrich......

        @ Anonymous Please think about your vote because it is important.... Basically the end game to that viewpoint is another 4 years of LIBERAL Pres. Obama.
