Romney Surges With "Anybody But McCain" Voters!! …Up 8 In California!!!
“Romney appears to be gaining some “Anybody-but-McCain” support.”
Governor Mitt Romney was a big hit in St. Louis on Sunday at his Super Bowl Party at Dave and Busters. (GP)
Romney surged ahead 9 points on top of John McCain in California!!
In the Republican race, Arizona Sen. John McCain solidified his double-digit leads over Mitt Romney in New York and New Jersey, but Romney expanded his lead in California, the biggest prize on “Super Tuesday.”
…Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, led McCain 40 percent to 32 percent in California, where the margin of error was 3.3 percentage points. A win in California, the most populous state, could help puncture McCain’s growing momentum in the Republican nomination fight.
McCain won the last two contests, in South Carolina and Florida, to seize the front-runner’s slot in a hard-fought Republican race despite qualms among some conservatives about his past views on taxes, immigration and campaign finance.
“Romney is widening his lead in California and has a really big advantage with conservatives,” Zogby said. “Romney winning California would give some Republicans pause when they look at McCain as the potential nominee.”
In Georgia- Romney is Gaining With the “anybody But McCain” Voters…
Before McCain’s significant victory Florida’s Presidential Primary, Huckabee was leading by fifteen percentage points in Georgia. Now, Romney appears to be gaining some “Anybody-but-McCain” support. The former Massachusetts Governor has struggled in the South throughout the campaign.
Huckabee continues to lead among the state’s Evangelical Christian voters, but by a smaller margin than earlier in the year. The former Baptist Preacher attracts 34% of the Evangelical Vote in Georgia while McCain picks up 28% and Romney 26%.
Romney wins 34% of the conservative vote, Huckabee 31%, and McCain 24%. Among the smaller number of politically moderate voters, it’s McCain 41%, Huckabee 21%, and Romney 20%.
HERE’S WHY those “Anybody But McCain” voters are surging towards Romney.
Melanie Morgan is also having a problem with getting behind the McCain bandwagon.
