The poll shows that Romney is finally breaking out of the mid twenty range of support that he has consistently been mired in, has broken the 30% range and in a field of four other major candidates, is now making a run for the 35% mark.
Normally, I put little weight in national polls, when the winner is determined on a state by state basis. However, in a larger sense, this poll would seem to be a sign that Republicans are beginning to resign themselves to a sense of inevitability surrounding the nomination of Mitt Romney. It is a perception which became unavoidable after Romney won both Iowa and New Hampshire and was only boosted by reports of Romney’s increasing lead in the soon to be hed third nomination contest of South Carolina.
According to Galllup:
Saturday, January 21st: – South Carolina –
50 25 delegates
Tuesday, January 31st; – Florida –
99 50 delegates
Saturday, February 4th – Nevada 23 delegates, Maine – 24 delegates
Tuesday, February 7th; – Colorado – 36 delegates, Minnesota – 40 delegates, Missouri -53 delegates
Tuesday, February 28th; – Arizona –
58 24 delegates, Michigan – 59 30 delegates
Saturday, March 3rd; – Washington – 43 delegates
Tuesday, March 6th; (Super Tuesday)- Alaska – 27 delegates, Georgia – 75 delegates, Massachusetts – 41 delegates, North Dakota– 28 delegates, Idaho – 24 of 29 delegates, Oklahoma – 43 delegates, Tennessee – 58 delegates, Texas – 152 delegates, Virginia – 49 delegates, Vermont – 17 delegates, Wyoming – 29 delegates
While the race is certainly not over and Romney can’t take anything for granted, he must now also begin to lay the groundwork for the next stage of this election cycle. That would incude uniting the many factions of the Party and to inspire them all. If this pol as a good indication of how things are realy going, it woiuld seem that Mitt needs to thank President for being the reason why Republicans are seemingy preapared to unite behind Mitt. But that will still leave Romney with the need to inspire thise whoa re willing to support him over Barack Obama. It now looks like that may be the toughest challenge ahead for Mitt.
