Not So Fast: New Texas Poll Puts Gingrich in Striking Distance

Newt Gingrich has been inching towards the door over the last couple of days, admitting that tonight’s Delaware primary is likely a make-or-break situation for his campaign.  However, a new poll out today might give the former Speaker some pause.

Public Policy Polling shows that Mitt Romney leads in the state of Texas by a 45% to 35% margin, putting Gingrich within striking distance.  Coming up lame in his home state, only 14% of GOP supporters support Ron Paul.

More encouraging for Gingrich, or troubling for Romney, is that the presumptive nominee is trailing the former Speaker 45% to 40% among Evangelicals, a major force in Southern Republican politics.

Gingrich also leads among Republicans under the age of 45.

    Texas or Bust Newt, plenty of delgates there and a Debate, you could do VERY well there. Take a mini break and come back stronger than ever. We are counting on you and there are people in Texas that cannot wait to vote for you!!

  8. I want to hear, in no uncertain terms, that Newt will stay in until someone wins, and not back off of his statement. Saying one thing and then saying something different a week letter, does not give me confidence. I will not vote for Romney, and have serious problems with Ron Paul, so, unless Newt clearly states he is staying in, I will leave, and I predict, there will be a mass exodus, from the Republican Party. I am seriously considering the Constitution Party and their candidate, which they chose this past weekend.
