Rasmussen, PPP, ip polls


Rasmussen has released a series of polls that reflect deep divisions in the GOP. In his summary of results, even Scott Rasmussen, consultant to the earth hater party himself, concedes some woe for his clients:
The race for the 2012 GOP nomination has been properly characterized as one between two candidates: Mitt Romney and Nott Romney. Some describe it as a rift between the party establishment favoring Romney and the party base looking for someone else. In the public mind, the tea party is more troubling for Republicans than the Occupy movement is for Democrats.
And, from another post at the Rasmussen website:
The new findings are perhaps no surprise given that voter approval of the entire Congress is at the lowest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports. More voters than ever before also believe most members of Congress are corrupt.
Public Policy Polling supports many of the same findings:
The likelihood of anyone other than Romney being the Republican nominee seems increasingly small, but for what it's worth Obama leads the rest of the field by healthy margins: 47-41 over Ron Paul, 49-43 over Newt Gingrich, and 49-41 over Rick Perry.
The recent ip polls suggest that mostly idealogues vote here.

Who could best beat President Obama if election were held today?

Paul
10 (62%)

Santorum
2 (12%)

Romney
2 (12%)

Other earth hater
2 (12%)

My sense is that Jon Huntsman could do best against President Obama if the race were to be held today.

I got the poll: Who wins New Hampshire? up too late and didn't include Santorum to it because I wanted to see whether someone would write him in as Other earth hater...oh, well.

Huntsman
1 (25%)

Paul
0 (0%)

Newt
1 (25%)

Romney
2 (50%)

Other earth hater
0 (0%)

An interview on NPR reinforced the conventional wisdom that Ron Paul has the resources to be in it through the primaries regardless and irrespective of his chances then will plead his case at the nominating convention as the voice for the tea wing bolstering son Rand as the party's future.

Yikes.

Larry, very few of my fellow Republicans are true "earth haters." The dark river runs more a sinister course than that: They don't give a damn.

I fancy myself as a Lincoln Republican. Doggone few of us around these days. I could do better by the Gaia; I'm working on it. Aloha.

Larry, I do believe that as the older generations fade a group that cares for the earth will rise. a seed has already been planted. I see a lot of sub-cultures that believes in natural law that is interchangeable with constitutional law. This is our circle and we are growing. (pun intended)You should find some of these people and join them in the cause.
