Romney Dominates in MD

One of the great things about being a RINO in the state of Maryland is that there is a large number of fellow RINOs to hang out with and the latest poll from Scott Rasmussen shows that.

Mitt Romney 45%
Rick Santorum 28%
Newt Gingrich 12%
Ron Paul 7%

I was expecting Romney to be up pretty big in Maryland but it is good to finally have a documented poll to show it. I don’t get to vote for winners in General Elections too often, so I have to take my votes for winners when I can. This poll was done March 28th among 750 likely primary voters.

    [reposted from last thread]

    Real Clear Politics shows Obama +5.4 using the average of last 9 polls.
    However 7 of those 9 polls are using RV, while the other 2 using LV shows either a tie or Obammer +1.

  2. Walt says:

    Mitt should cruise in MD.

  3. MFG says:

    When does Pope Ricky give it up?

    The psychosis is strong in that one

    Perhaps he waits for another humiliating loss in his home state?

    Or does he even persist past then??

  4. Brandon says:

    PA is probably his last stand. His own people are touting their own delegate count, saying that the media one is wrong.

  5. Walt says:

    thread rule–

    Predict which will happen FIRST:
    A. The SCOTUS will actually hand down their ruling

    B. Mitt will reach the magic number of delegates

    C. Al Sharpton will go on another race baiting crusade based on some new “incident” (not the Trayvon Martin shooting)

    D. Average gas prices in U.S. will go over $4.99.9

    E. MD will return to HHR

  6. DW says:

    E happens first.

  7. SusyQue says:

    #6…I vote “B”…Mitt will reach that #!

  8. Walt says:

    BTW–I filled up my wife’s car last night at $3.09 per gallon.
    But I did have a dollar a gallon off due to grocery purchases. Saved 15 scraps of folding money.

  9. eem dee says:

    #7 is a winner!

  10. Apologetic California says:

    Until Santorum drops out, the general public still thinks there’s a ‘race’. And that’s hitting Romney hard in GE matchups.

  11. Walt says:

    Apo Ca–I agree.

    People refuse to pick the Buick against the Volt when they still have a very slim choice of driving away in the Ricky popemobile.
    When the only clear choice is Buick vs. Volt, then we can pay attention to the GE matchup in those dozen or less swing states, which will be the only ones that really will matter.

  12. Walt says:

    I predict when MD does come back, he will be mellow, subdued and most polite and the thearapy he went through will have been beneficial.

  13. DW says:

    No changes in gallup tracking

    Mitt Romney 39%
    Rick SoreLoserUm 28%

  14. Walt says:

    Congrtats to Commonwealth of PA who a few weeks ago became the 32nd state to require some form of ID for voting.
    If upheld in court, what impact might this have on PA in the GE?

    Every state we now border have some from of voter ID except MD. (WV does not).

  15. Waingro says:

    #14, Barry also down to 46% today.

  16. jan says:

    Anyone notice how Santorum has faded into the background since his gaffe with the NYT reporter?

  17. Brandon says:

    #15. It won’t matter because the Black Panthers will still be at each polling station turning away white voters.

  18. jan says:

    What does it say about this country that Obama approval is even above 40%.

  19. DW says:

    It says that about 40% of Americans are greedily sucking on the teat of goverment at the expense of the taxpayers.

  20. Phil says:

    It says that minorities make up a larger and larger percentage of the American population. Most of them want more goodies from the governement, hence the Obama popularity stays as high as it does.

    Tax whitey.

  21. OHIO JOE says:

    “PA is probably his last stand. His own people are touting their own delegate count, saying that the media one is wrong.” The truth is somewhere in the middle.

  22. jan says:

    How sad looks like this will be the last generation to live the American Dream. Our future make look like California.

  23. DW says:

    Phil, I recently have spoken with some people who have spent time in a poorer country in Africa. As a white American in Africa, the assumption is that you are wealthy beyond belief and that if you don’t give them all your money so that they can be as equal with you as possible, then you are being greedy and cruel.

    The USA = Africa.

  24. DW says:

    23…our future looks more like Camaroon than it does California.

  25. marc says:

    This is false. Obama’s approval are in keeping for a first term President. They are actually lower then Bushs on the average.

    So stop the racists insuitations.

  26. Phil says:


    Take from the white majority and redistribute to lower icome minorities. If you are in that group, you love Obama. His philosophy is to do exactly that.

    What is ironic is that by voting for Democrats which promise a government check, they get more dependent every year and therefore less likely to lift themselves inot the middle class. They are stuck.

  27. Phil says:

    My point is the changing demographics. The country is less white and the greater number of minorities think they are voting their interests in supporting Obama.

    The country was 88% white when Reagan was elected in 80. It is 71% white today. That makes the country more liberal as minorities are more apt to be supporters of liberals. Hence, Obama will not fall below a certain floor.

    That’s not racism. It’s changing demographics.

  28. jan says:

    I agree with marc lets not blame it on race and minorities. Obama’s ratings are lower than Bushs at this point in time in 2004 Bush had a 53% approval Obama has a 46%.

  29. Al Sharpton says:

    Bush 53
    Zero 46

    That would imply racism to me…in that whitey don’t like the black man holding power.

  30. Robbie says:

    So far, I haven’t seen a single state flip from 2008 based on the polling.

    Not yet, at least.

    Comment by Phil — March 29, 2012 @ 11:06 am

    I copied this from the previous thread because it is exactly the reason why I remain less than optimistic about Romney’s chances in the Fall.

    Much can change between now and election day, but it is very troubling, despite the favorable terrain, Romney trails in most swing states.

    I do think Romney can win, but he’s now entering a danger zone of simply being written off before the main event starts. That’s essentially what happened to Dole in 1996 as Clinton’s poll numbers rose in the Spring.

    I’ve got to see the numbers in Florida and Ohio tighten before I think can say Romney really has a good chance of winning. It’s good to see a national poll here or there show it tied, but that must be accompanied by a corresponding move in state polls after about a week.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    Brandon – There are only 2 Black Panthers in Philadelphia. They can only cover so much ground in one day.

  33. marc says:

    The political floor for both parties is about 45% even or take. That”s why rarely you saw Bush dip down past 45% during his first term. It was only after Katrina that the dam broke and his numbers plummeted. The same for Obama although is numbers have between 40% to 50% for much of his first term.

  34. SoHope says:

    GWB hit rock bottom b/c he was a lame duck and there was little to nothing left that he could do for us. Other republicans shunned him to save their skin.

  35. janz says:

    Unfortunately there is crime in the United States. Research, though, shows that crimes are usually committed more between racially similar people than those of opposite races. However, I have noticed that when tragedies do occur between members of the opposite race, it is more frequently reported and hyped when it is the African American who is victimized, rather than other races being the target of African American criminal acts.

    This observation seems to be applicable to the Martin/Zimmerman one too, as it is currently unfolding For example, on Drudge this morning, there is the following story about:
    Parents of murdered British student criticize Barak Obama

    “Mr Kouzaris has written to President Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to even receive the courtesy of a reply.

    “It would perhaps appear that Mr Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time.”

    The rebuke follows Mr Obama’s personal intervention into the shooting in Florida of a young black teenager by a white neighbourhood watch captain.

    The key to this excerpt is how there is no “political value” to the British men being killed, as there is to Trayvon Martin’s now exploited death.

    Obama’s presidency seems to be defined by political values rather than real values.

    Phil, don’t focus only on minorities. There are plenty of whites with the hands out.

    Yup, and most of them will vote for me!

    Wait’ll the first failed T Bill auction

    And its coming, too…

  39. Phil says:

    I don’t doubt that, Bitter. They just don’t do that in the percentage numbers that minorities do. Less white percentage that qualify for the government goodies than the percentage of minorities. Not a race thing as much as it is an economic class thing. Minorities make up a greater percentage of the lower income group.

    The Democratic Party is working on that, however – making more and more whites eligible for government assistance – getting them on the government dole as much as possible.

  40. John says:

    I agree with BL in 37. The bulk of federal spending is on Medicare, Social Security and Defence. I would hardly call them “redistribute p lower income minorities.”

  41. David, you are NOT a RINO. While I’m a pure fiscal, social, and foreign policy conservative; I hate when others want to push all others out of the Republican party.

    Those are the type who loved the days when the South was a one party Democrats only need apply region. These people love being the minority party, like the Republicans were in the US House for 60 out of 64 years after the stock market crash.

  42. DW says:

    41…that turns around the disussion though into a different direction…the question was why 40% approve of Obama, and its because 40% or more are receiving public $$ taken from taxpayers. Of course they are going to keep voting Obama. If you live your life sitting under a tree outside sherwood forest, and every month Robin Hood drops by and gives you money, and then you hear that Robin Hood is up for re-election, and if he loses, then you have to start working for a living…you get up and go vote for Robin Hood.

    Breyers unhinged Commerce Clause ramblings

    To get the gist of the case Breyer’s was making for the AMA, you have to read the whole article. But, at the conclusion, the following is what the writer thought about Breyer’s contribution to the hearings:

    Breyer mischaracterized the facts and holdings of every case he alluded to. If this is the quality of argument the liberals on the court are making to Justice Kennedy, the individual mandate is a goner.

    CHICAGOLAND: Godfather To Propose $7 Billion Plan — To Create 30,000 Jobs…

    hmm…sounds like money well spent…just $233,333.33 per job. Chicago taxpayers gotta grab a bargin like that!

  45. janz says:

    Unfortunately the point, John is making in #41, is that the heaviest financial burden this country is faced with is ensconced in the entitlement programs which people have come to think of as legitimately their’s, and not subject to any reform or financial revision. Medicare, SS are seen as long-held rights of seniors. The details that they are going broke, unsustainable, and there are lopsided contributions being made in them, versus received from them, don’t register with the majority of people.

    All Obama has to do is play into these people’s perspectives and fears, and they become an instant constituency who see themselves as only getting protection, in keeping these benefits intact, under a democratic regime — much like how FDR played it politically, back in the days of the Great Depression. That’s where the 40% wears concrete boots, no matter how egregious Obama’s actions become.

    Santorum’s Jeremiah Wright Moment?
    Jonathan S. Tobin 03.28.2012

    The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism released a video yesterday criticizing Rick Santorum for sitting and listening and then later applauding a sermon by Reverend Dennis Terry at the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church in Louisiana. The video shows Terry encouraging those who do not believe that America is a “Christian nation” — specifically Buddhists and Muslims — to “get out” of America. The RAC’s leader, Rabbi David Saperstein, took Santorum to task for going up to Terry after this tirade to get the pastor’s blessings. While acknowledging that Santorum later distanced himself from Terry’s views, Saperstein said the Republican presidential candidate had a special responsibility as someone who has given issues of faith a prominent role in his campaign to address “hateful” or “bigoted” speech.

    Saperstein is right about that. Candidates who sit and listen to hate speech by their supporters, especially when it is spouted from religious pulpits, have a duty to draw a bright line between such views and the political mainstream. In that respect, Santorum appears to have failed. He was clearly more interested in getting the endorsement of Terry and the backing of other evangelicals in the Louisiana Primary than in doing the right thing during his visit to Greenwell Springs. But while I think the pointed questions that Saperstein posed to Santorum are very much on target, if the subject of politicians sitting and listening to hateful sermons seems vaguely familiar, maybe we should flash back to 2008 when a longtime member of Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s congregation was running for president.

    Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson says Newt Gingrich is at the end of his line as far as receiving big money donations to his Super PAC.
    “I like him. We’re friendly. But I got to tell you something, I don’t want him running my country,” Adelson said of Rick Santorum.

  54. DW says:

    The primary is over, and has been for some time. This Tuesday will further illustrate that fact. At this point, there is only Mitt Romney left who can and will get to the magic number of delegates. Considering the minimal possible that Romney would get from here on out, Santorum simply cannot get enough and is basically mathematically eliminated right now.

They think any decision that goes against them would be partisans nd harmful to the Courts legacy. They are now screaming judicial activism in some sort of “Through the Looking Glass” upside down world they now inhabit.

    Those less intelligent think that the destruction of Obama’s seminal political achievement will actually help him political.

    When do we start calling them Alice in Wonderland Democrats?

  59. The competing Franklin & Marshall survey had Santorum just up 30% to 28%.
