A Preview of PPP’s MI and WI Polls (Plus OH Poll_

I never did get around to posting the latest results from Ohio from Quinnipiac University yesterday.

Rick Santorum 36%
Mitt Romney 29%
Newt Gingrich 17%
Ron Paul 11%

This poll was done February 23-26 among 847 likely primary voters. I only psted that pollt give me an outlet to post the latest tweets from Public Policy Polling on their Michigan poll they plan on releasing tonight bewteen 10 and 11 o’clock (well after I will be in bed).

Pretty sure Santorum will win election day voters tomorrow in MI, just a question of whether he can make up Romney’s absentee lead
Started today’s Michigan calls at 4 and so far seeing encouraging things for Santorum. Tomorrow may be a long night,

They also have this about a new poll from Wisconsin they plan on releasing tomorrow.

Wisconsin recall numbers tomorrow. Best numbers we’ve seen for Dems in a while on that front.

I am sure Scott Walker is just going to love the idea of Rick Santorum as the face of the Republican Party while he is trying to keep his gubernatorial seat….

    wtf? pope rick is encouraging democrats to vote for him! i wonder how hannity and rush will spin it if the pope wins?

  2. SUSYQUE says:

    #2…Jenny…Using Dems to win an election. He’s staking the deck.
    Not very wise.

  3. SUSYQUE says:


  4. SUSYQUE says:

    SoHope…what did you mean when you said that post was not Lisab?

  5. SoHope says:

    SSQ, the info the post from lisab was in quotation marks had capital letters (which lisab never uses) and was followed by non-quoted “get well soon” (with not caps)

  6. SoHope says:

    she was clearly quoting someone (copying and pasting) and wished them to get well soon…

  7. SoHope says:

    does Walker have a big name person running against him?

  8. Diamond Jim says:

    #8 The unions are backing a lib from Madison to run against Walker. The Walker campaign declined to challenge any recall signatures, so the recall election may be held sooner rather than later.

  9. Robbie says:

    Scott Walker doesn’t have a prime time opponent facing him yet.

  10. Tony- 2012 the GOP comeback the Red tide is coming says:

    Sorry it will be tough but Scott walker will win !! Rick or no rick!!!

  11. Robbie says:

    Regardless of what happens tomorrow night, Santorum won’t be the nominee. Walker won’t have to worry about that.

  12. SUSYQUE says: hope…I didn’t know that was her style.
    She didn’t mention anyone’s name…there was no
    # reference from another post.
    At least my heart was in the right place.

  13. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    She was quoting Barrett Susyque who got in a car wreck she was citing his post and wishing him well

  14. SUSYQUE says:

    #14…This is what I read…Where is the referance
    to another person?
    lisab says:
    February 27, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    “Sorry for the lack of posts guys. I was in a bad accident on thursday. Car is total, suffering from a concussion and whiplash.

    Doc says my back will heal in a weak. Bastard who hit me is in big trouble, I think he has to stand trial”

    get well soon

  15. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    She didn’t refer to Barrett but that was his post from earlier today

  16. SUSYQUE says:

    #7-#14…your critical spirit is obvious. I have posted # 14 and you do not respond that anyone could read that as Lisab’s post about herself. But
    then again, you guys are the pros.

  17. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Susy I wasnt being ugly at all sorry if you took it that way

  18. SUSYQUE says:

    #16…” She didn’t refer to Barrett”

    So that is my point.

  19. lisab says:


    “Sorry for the lack of posts guys. I was in a bad accident on thursday. Car is total, suffering from a concussion and whiplash.

    Doc says my back will heal in a weak. Bastard who hit me is in big trouble, I think he has to stand trial

    Comment by Barrett — February 27, 2012 @ 9:56 am”

    get well soon, Barrett

  20. Robbie says:

    PPP Tweet

    Our combined 2 night tracking numbers in Michigan: Santorum 38, Romney 37, Paul 14, Gingrich 9

    Santorum must have had a really good day.

  21. SUSYQUE says:

    19…I appreciate correction when it is truly a mistake. As I said, I read that and I felt awful thinking it was Lisab who was hurt.

  22. Robbie says:

    PPP Tweet

    Our Monday only numbers in Michigan: Santorum 39, Romney 34, Paul 15, Gingrich 10

  23. Robbie says:

    PPP Tweet

    Our Monday only numbers of people who didn’t already vote in Michigan: Santorum 41, Romney 31, Paul 16, Gingrich 9

  24. SoHope says:

    Enough being the victim, SSQ…next topic.

  25. lisab says:

    As I said, I read that and I felt awful thinking it was Lisab who was hurt.”

    feel bad for barrett!

  26. SUSYQUE says:

    #26…I’m taking my marbles and going home.
    Goodnight! (:-)

  27. janz says:

    According to this, Santorum appears to have regained momentum in MI.

    Pundits are pointing to some of Romney’s statements, painted as gaffes (two Cadillacs), as well as the setting of his speech in Ford Stadium Friday, as being errors that turned the tide against Romney. As I recall, the press immediately jumped on these events as opportunities they could exploit, which they did. It’s amazing the trivia that can play as a game changer!

  28. Bitterlaw says:

    Lisab – get well soon. I know you will recover from the car accident. You’re a fighter!

  29. jason says:


    “Romney leads among Republicans in Michigan. It’s Democrats putting Santorum over the top. We’ll see if they really show up…”

    Republicans are so stupid they want to allow the Democrats to pick the nominee….

  30. Robbie says:

    One more PPP tweet

    Romney leads among Republicans in Michigan. It’s Democrats putting Santorum over the top. We’ll see if they really show up…

  31. jason says:

    That’s Barrett, not lisab…..

  32. jason says:

    Hey troll, stop copying my posts… thanks.

  33. jason says:

    I think the Democrat thing will backfire on Santorum.. maybe not in Michigan but he is handing Romney a powerful weapon. You read it here first.

  34. Bitterlaw says:

    SUSYQUE told me lisab was nearly decapitated in a car accident. I saw it on the internet. It has to be true.

  35. jason says:

    Romney and Santorum even on Intrade… nobody knows who is going to win.

  36. bio mom says:

    Dems deciding our results! And Santorum abetted it. I am so disgusted.

  37. jason says:

    36. I read Barrett was in the car with her and that, hmmm, well, there was evidence that something was distracting the driver.

    Disclaimer; lisab’s eunuch is not named Barrett.

  38. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Well, we’ll know soon enough

    Am I the only one infuriated by Pope Ricky running an ad directed to Democrats telling them Mitt was opposed to the bailout when Pope Ricky was also?

    What a despicable hypocritical azzhole

  39. jason says:

    ” Dems deciding our results! And Santorum abetted it. I am so disgusted.”

    Look at it this way. Maybe it will be a rallying call.

    And if it isn’t, maybe its a sign we are really to stupid to win.

  40. Bitterlaw says:

    I hope all the people angry at the Dems were equally upset at Rush and Operation Chaos. That was wrong and so is this.

  41. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    We can also thank TheAzzholeWithFourWivesWhoCommitsDrugFelonies as well

    Revenge by the Democrats for Operation Chaos

    Thanks Rush!

  42. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    I was uncomfortable with Operation Chaos when TheDrugAddledFatBoy was pushing it although I can’t honestly say I vigorously opposed it

  43. Bobby says:

    Romney loses MI by 2. Wins AZ by 18.

  44. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    This has got to end soon or the nomination will be worthless

  45. bio mom says:


    My disgust is because Santorum abetted this. I expect it from the Dems. But that is too horrible for me. I will haveu a hard time even looking at the man from now on much less voting for him?

  46. bio mom says:

    Romney said tonight that the Santorum calls was a new low. I agree.

  47. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Every time I run across someone going on and on and on and on about Jesus this and Jesus that and Jesus the other thing I have found that person to invariably be an individual of low character and a hypocrite as well

  48. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Mitt needs to take $100 million out of the Romney family stash and politically LAY WASTE to this goddamned piece of trash

  49. Bobby says:

    Can someone link the story of Santorum calling on dems to vote for him?

  50. janz says:

    I agree about the calls to dems from Santorum. He is pulling out all the stops to attain this win. It will be interesting to see if he is condemmned for it, in the aftermath, like Romney was after his Iowa negative ad campaign.

  51. bob says:

    Wanting to attract the votes of Reagan (conservative) Democrats:

    How shameful. Didn’t that strategy help Ronald Reagan to 2 landslide wins in 1980 and 1984?

    It’s NOT like Santorum is cheating or stuffing the ballot box.

  52. janz says:

    Three stories on Political Wire deal with the shift over to Santorum, as well as the robocalls to dems.

  53. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Piece of sh*t vermin b@stard Santorum must be obliterated politically

  54. SUSYQUE says:

    #42…Bitter…perhaps Rush will be happy if
    Romney doesn’t win MI.

  55. janz says:

    #54 bob

    Wasn’t that shift, used by Reagan, during the GE, rather than in a GOP primary? There’s a big difference when dems help to nominate the republican nominee, many of which are doing so in order to assure the weaker of the field is the nominee.

  56. BobKerreyIsAWarCriminal says:

    Uh, Bob, he’s LYING in the ads

    Complaining that Mitt opposed the bailouts when he was also

  57. Bobby says:

    Holy Jesus! Is he nuts???

  58. SoHope says:

    This is from the “Reagan Democrat” supporting Santorum:

    “Mitt Romney has been unable to stem the bleeding despite his tens of millions. Just imagine Santorum, with the far more radical record and a continued inability to raise real money. It’s a no-brainer!”

  59. SoHope says:

    Didn’t Rush have a fit when Democrat/Indies in NH picked McCain?

  60. CAgopguy says:

    Piece of sh*t vermin romney needs to be obliterated at all costs

  61. SoHope says:

    Romney is Republicans by 5% but losing Democrats by 37%…who do they want to face in the GE?

  62. SoHope says:

    of the Democrats that are voting for Santorum in the PPPoll 51% are “very liberal” or “somewhat liberal” and 28% are “moderate”.

    These are not voters for us in the GE.

  63. Archibald Cunningham (R) says:

    PublicPolicyPolling ? @ppppolls

    Romney leads 43-38 among Republicans in Michigan. But Dems going for Santorum 47-10

    Full results up now for our final Michigan poll, which finds Santorum up 38-37 on Romney

  64. SoHope says:

    and considering many AA’s call themself “conservative” I am sure it is worse.

  65. Archibald Cunningham (R) says:

    Don’t be surprised if we don’t find out later that Obama’s SuperPAC did campaigning for Santorum in the last few days.

  66. SoHope says:

    and that doesn’t count liars claiming to be republicans or indies.

  67. SoHope says:

    #70 Obama’s pac did run a couple hundred thousand dollars in ads in MI that were anti-romney recently.

  68. SoHope says:

    From another Santorum supporter:

    “…And in any case, it’s freaking hilarious. I mean, Rick Santorum? Really? The Republicans have offered up this big, slow, juicy softball. Let’s have fun whacking the heck out of it.

    Please, contribute $5 to help us turn out Democrats in open Republican primaries and caucuses.”

  69. SoHope says:

    Santorum’s Democrat friends continue with:

    “I realize that this makes some of you squeamish, and if you live in one of those states and don’t want to participate, you don’t have to! But there’s too much at stake to worry about idealistic notions of what democracy should be. Luckily for all of us, Team Obama isn’t restraining itself based on such idealism. They’re playing to win.”

  70. SoHope says:

    “Obama’s Super PAC is now engaging in Michigan, attempting to weaken Romney for the benefit of the GOP’s own SNL Church Lady. And as much as the Super PACs might pretend that they operate independently of their candidates, they don’t. Priorities wouldn’t be hitting Romney in Michigan without the tacit approval of Team Obama.”

  71. Archibald Cunningham (R) says:

    Santy can lead all he likes with Dems.

    But 20% of votes have been cast.

  72. DrJay says:



    Gingrich 39%
    Santorum 24%
    Romney 23%
    Paul 9%

    Obama 42%
    Romney 49%

    Obama 43%
    Santorum 47%

    Obama 44%
    Gingrich 48%

    Obama 43%
    Paul 46%

  73. Michael corleone says:

    Mittbots melting down.

    I don’t want to hear any complaints about santo courting dems.

    Romney unleashed his death star, super PAC, and Ron Paul alliance and santo is still hanging tough.

    Look at it this way…if santo wins tomorrow, he will likely win the votes of very conservative and very lib voters.

  74. TedO says:

    I have never liked the idea of open primaries whether DEM, REP, LIB or GREEN. It is not right that NON-REPS can vote in a REP primary. Ludicrous, but that is what happens when you have some states that don’t have party registration. We shall see what Tuesday night brings. It is sad that the DEMS are dumping so much money and effort into beating Romney just to get Santorum as their patsy opponent in the Fall.

  75. TedO says:

    2/27 Gallup Mitt Romney now holds a 32% to 28% advantage over Rick Santorum among Republican voters nationwide in their preferences for the party’s presidential nomination. Santorum led by 10 percentage points a week ago.

  76. lisab says:

    After search, Army identifies remains of last unaccounted soldier in Iraq

    The U.S. military has identified the remains of the last American service member unaccounted for in Iraq, the Associated Press has reported.

    Staff. Sgt. Ahmed Kousay al-Taie was an Army interpreter from Ann Arbor, Mich. He was born in Iraq and moved to the U.S. as a teenager. He joined the Army Reserve in December 2004.

    The military’s mortuary in Dover, Del. positively identified part of his remains. Army officials provided no details about how his remains were discovered.

  77. Big Ben 4 liberty says:

    man you should start calling this site, the Whiny Establishment (loser) Republican Report. Because that it posts have become in the last year or so.

  78. Cory says:

    I say Mitt wins Michigan tomorrow.

    And I was sorry to hear that lisab was decapitated and killed in that horrific vehicle assembly plant accident.

  79. Todd McCain says:

    Santorum robo calling urging dems to vote for him. What a scumbag —- it is pretty obvious who the GOP should be supporting in this race.

  80. bio mom says:

    Crosstabs show Mitt up 5 with Republicans in ppp poll. So, by enouraging Dems to crossvote, Santorum is in essence saying the will of the Republicans should not matter in choosing their nominee. How does that jive with “taking one for the team”? Hypocrite.

  81. Todd McCain says:

    To turn a blind eye to the dems effors is one thing, but as a candidate to actively support dems voting in the primary using the bailouts (which he opposed as well) is down right low life in my opinion. Rick Santorum is low class.

  82. bio mom says:

    At his campaign rally last night Santorum urged his supporters to send a message to the “establishment”. Those words could have come right out of Rush Limbaugh’s mouth.

  83. SoHope says:

    If romney is half as liberal as santorum says then why are dems supporting his 2:1? And those arent reagan dems…they are 51% liberal and 28% moderate.

  84. Scissors says:

    Polls Apart

    The volatility in polling suggests a few things, not least of which is that Romney’s electability edge has virtually evaporated.

    The takeaway from these numbers is that the electability premium that Romney had over Santorum has, for now, virtually evaporated.

    Over and over again all you lemmings talk about is Romney’s electability advantage, well according to Charlie Cook, Romney electability edge has all but vanished.

  85. jason says:

    Michael Moore and the deadenders and trolls here are all on the same page:

    “I have to tell you a lot of my Democratic friends will vote for Santorum in something they are calling Operation Hilarity,” Michael Moore said at the end of an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

    According to the Daily Kos, who launched this campaign, Operation Hilarity is “an opportunity for Democrats to actually help prolong this election a little bit longer because we’ve seen that the longer this drags out, the worse it is for Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum and the best it is for Barack Obama.”

  86. jason says:

    ” Romney leads 43-38 among Republicans in Michigan. But Dems going for Santorum 47-10 ‘

    Democrats prefer Santorum.

    The Corleones and Scissors can talk themselves blue in the face but there is only one explanation for that.

    They KNOW he is easier to beat.
