"Gingrich bounces off of the floor
"by Steve Singiser.

"With the Christmas weekend approaching, it has been a quiet few days of polling (made more quiet by the absence of the Wrap yesterday, for which I apologize). But one thing we can see from the limited array of data available is that the Gingrich swoon has levelled off. He remains competitive in a nominally Romney-centric early state (Nevada), he remains locked within striking distance in Iowa (granted, it's an ARG! poll, but still), and, most tellingly, Gingrich has stayed out in front of the Gallup daily tracking poll, and actually clings to a slightly larger lead that he held at the start of the week.
"As for the president, the small spate of general election polling seems to hint that Obama is benefitting from his battles with the Republicans in Congress.
"But before we get to that news, let's first examine the primary election polling that has accumulated in the ol' in-box over the last couple of days.
"NATIONAL (Gallup Tracking): Gingrich 26, Romney 22, Paul 13, Perry 8, Bachmann 6, Santorum 3, Huntsman 1
"IOWA (American Research Group): Paul 21, Romney 20, Gingrich 19, Perry 9, Bachmann 8, Huntsman 6, Santorum 4, Roemer 1
"NEVADA (Univ. of Nevada/LVRJ): Romney 33, Gingrich 29, Paul 13, Bachmann 5, Huntsman 3, Perry 3, Santorum 3
"NEW YORK (Quinnipiac): Gingrich 29, Romney 26, Paul 9, Huntsman 5, Bachmann 4, Santorum 3, Perry 1
"As for those general election numbers:
"NATIONAL (Rasmussen): Obama d. Romney (44-41); Obama d. Bachmann (48-35)
"NEVADA (Univ. of Nevada/LVRJ): Obama d. Romney (46-40); Obama d. Paul (45-36); Obama d. Gingrich (47-35); Obama d. Santorum (49-31); Obama d. Huntsman (49-30); Obama d. Perry (51-31); Obama d. Bachmann (50-27)
"NEW YORK (Quinnipiac): Obama d. Romney (53-35); Obama d. Gingrich (55-32)"
It looks like Obama is still on top. Where is the heart of the Republican Party? Can Conservatives and neocons close ranks after the primaries? Stay tuned. Elect More Democrats!
