NBC News-Wall Street Journal" Gingrich Leads Romney By 9 Points

By Susan Duclos

MSNBC released their national polling results and found that Newt Gingrich is leading Mitt Romney nationwide among registered Republican primary voters likely to vote in the primaries across the country.

Gingrich leads Romney 37 percent to 28 percent nationally among registered Republicans likely to vote in the primaries; Rick Santorum is in third with 18 percent, and Ron Paul is fourth with 12 percent.

The breathless headline over at MSNBC also includes that Gingrich trails Obama in head-to-head match ups, but I have maintained steadily and multiple times here at Wake up America that head-to-head match ups with Barack Obama have no predictive value until one GOP candidate is chosen.

Barack Obama is one man and the leaning right Independents and conservative voters have multiple choices before them until one candidate is chosen to be the Republican nominee for presidency.

Until one candidate is chosen as the nominee, conservatives do not have the opportunity to coalesce behind that candidate, so until the primaries are over and the delegates are counted at the convention, head-to-heads against Obama make great headlines, but mean absolutely nothing in my mind.
