Latest polling between Obama and Candidates'' Latest Polls Average of all polls (11/29 - 12/7): Iowa Gingrich average pts. +12.6 New Hampshire Romney average pts. +11.2 South Carolina Gingrich average pts. +19.3 Generic Osama vs. Republican candidate (11/28 - 12/4; Rasmussen) Republican +8 Obama vs. Romney (12/5 -12/9) Romney +3 Obama +2 Obama vs. Gingrich (12/5-12/7) Obama +5.5 What does this say to you? I believe these should be more current, but take what you can from the info. It would appear that Gingrich has a lock on Iowa and South Carolina. Romney has a more moderate lock on New Hampshire, but has been lead has dwindled from past polls. Still a lock, however. The latest polls says the Republicans have a generic lead in the polls but when they assign a candidate to the polling, the lead dwindles and sways to Obama in the case of Gingrich. Wonder what the margin of error is in these polls? Didnt say. The more interesting statistics may be coming. What kind of influence will Ron Paul have in the equation when the determination will be between the incumbent and the nominee? What kind of impact will the independent voters have? Will disenfranchised Democrats stay home rather than vote for a Republican? Will disenfranchised Romney supporters or anti Gingrich voters opt out of voting if Gingrich gets the nomination? How strong is there an anti Gingrich movement in the Republican base? Likewise with Romney and the elitism and religious concerns continue. Will Paul be the spoiler? The most threatening statistics for either candidate will come out after the Obama and the nominee debates begin. How many will there be? Anytime or repeated debates for recovery of either candidate after poor performances? Since Gingrich and Romney have more experience this past year in debating, will Obama agree to fewer debates? Questions, questions. What will the future bring?
