Gingrich Preparing for New Jersey Primary. Romney’s Lead in Florida Restored

Buoyed by his stunning victory in South Carolina, New Gingrich is preparing for a nomination process that could extend into the summer.

Calls have gone out to conservative activists throughout New Jersey looking for grassroots networks to get out the vote for the former Speaker of the House in the Garden State’s  June presidential primary. 

The Gingrich campaign is advertising on cable television in New Jersey.

But the Gingrich campaign may be getting ahead of itself.  After leading the polls in Florida immediately after his South Carolina victory, Gingrich has fallen back to second place, behind Mitt Romney, in the Rasmussen Poll conducted last night.

According to Rasmussen, Romney has restored his lead in Florida back to where it was before Gingrich’s South Carolina win on Saturday.   Romney is supported by 39% of likely voters to Gingrich’s 31%.  Rick Santorum is favored by 12% and Ron Paul has the support of 9% of those expected to vote on Tuesday.  Only 7% are undecided.

    We’ll See What Happens In Florida, But This Will Indeed Be A Long Fight For The Nomination, So We Will Soon Begin To Collect Signatures To Place Newt On The New Jersey Ballot

    Think it’s even possible for Newton to organize a real campaign here, nevermind to win the primary here since Christie and all of the county chairs and such are already Team Willard?

    If Newton runs a strong campaign, one that could defeat Willard, then is it possible that Anna Little runs for US Senate and ends up on a line with Newton and defeats Joe Kyrillos, if not by accident, to pull off the off-the-line win, again?

    And since the various Tea Party groups (hey look I mentioned the TP, I should get a cookie for this!) are all for being Team Not-Willard, even if that means being Team Newton, what kinds of problem(s) does that create since some of the local Tea Party groups seem to be Team Joe Kyrillos, or at least Team Not-Little? Does the Tea Party ask people to bullet vote/not vote down a line/decide to only work on the presidential level and let the down-ticket races fall in any direction?

    I have to say, I think this year’s elections will be among the most fun to watch in a long while. That Sarah Palin is even trying to stick her nose back in to the mix makes it even more fun, The Donald may or may not decide to chime in with some non-sense of his own. Action, suspense, drama…. what more could girls like us ask for?

    Interesting observation James.

    But then, it’s NOT about the Christie & County Chairs getting together; its about THE PEOPLE having their say.

    And, a lot of support that Newt is getting is anti establishment and Tea Party support.

    But, who knows what the real story will be in June with the circular firing squad hard at work.

    Much of Romney’s attacks are (EASILY PROVABLE) pure lies for which Christie swallowed the hook on.

    Careful Governor, this could come back to haunt you some day when it is proven you are pushing lies by others

    And a lot of Romney’s problems are being hidden by the Main Street Media because they want Mitt because THEY know Obama can defeat him. Interesting stat on the electability issue. Mitt lost 16 out of 25 races and left Massachussetts with a 34% approval rating. Those are facts.

    Surely, More Monmouth Musings however, will print BOTH sides of the story as things come to N.J.

    What’s Rullo For Senate got to do with Newt Gingrich?

  6. James Hogan said at 10:39 am on January 27th, 2012:

    FS — I assume it’s noted because Joe Rullo could also end up on a line with Newton and all of that hard work you do for Newton could prove to reward Rullo (who you don’t seem to support) or any other down-ticket races.

    It really wouldn’t shock me a whole lot if come June we have three full slates in all/most/many CDs, ie:
    President: Willard Romney / Newton Gingrich / Ronald Paul
    US Senate: Joe Kyrillos / Anna Little / Joe Rullo
    US Congress: X / Y / Z
    With the re-districting process, figure even some of the incumbents have seen some significant changes in their Congressional districts, ie assume Chris Smith will be on a line below Romney/Kryillos and in most of Ocean County/CD4 — the races *could* (but probably won’t) be impacted by Rullo alone, but with Rullo AND Newton combined, CD4 could go to a guy other than Smith if someone should run off the line there. Not to mention, add in Congress’ sad approval rating and the anti-incumbent crowd and I’d say it could be a year where anything could happen to an incumbent/off the line candidate.

    Either way, as a former off-the-line-go-getter myself, I wish Rullo (and Anna Little for that matter) all of the best and I’m glad he’s willing to put his name on the ballot and make a run for office.

    Yes Folks, Newt Jersey 2012 can confirm that we are talking with the Arlington, D.C campaign office about setting up a N.J. Organization for Newt. We hope to have firmer information next week.

    Meanwhile, Newt Supporters can start connecting with us in a variety of ways so that we can ramp things up as soon as possible…

    Glad to hear it NewtJersey2012.

    Next week, advertising rates apply and you get a banner ad linked to Newt’s website too!

    Guess we’ll initially have to just start supplying news article copy as we are overly taxed grass roots grunts with little cash 🙂

    We admit that little cash will be spent here by the campaign for the near future, but hey; we might scrape a few bucks together later

    This Is A Must See If You Think You Like Mitt

    Well, at least Newt will be on NJ ballot, you know the state he lives in. Oh wait, that’s right……..This man is a bigger joke than Rick Santorum running for President. Throw the towel in Newt, you’re last weeks news!

  12. Bob English said at 7:16 am on January 28th, 2012:

    Newt is not going to be the next President. The only question left to be answered is does he somehow manage to get the nomination and drag the entire party down the tubes with him. Not likely but with Romney now appearing to be so flawed as a candidate you never know.

    Interesting that on Friday how much of the Republican establishment (hardcore R media and people who were in Congress with Newt) just totally ripped him. DNC and Obama campaign would not even need to make tv ads….would just play over and over what other Republicans were saying about him.

  13. Bob... said at 1:45 pm on January 28th, 2012:

    Glad that SOMEONE finally admits that Romney is a very flawed candidate…

    Shame thought that you don’t know that almost EVERY bit of the “ripping ” that the media did was proven wrong.
