“The White House must be panicking” about the new USA Today/Gallup poll showing that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are beating President Barack Obama in 12 swing states, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday.
The poll shows Romney leading Obama among registered voters, 48 percent to 43 percent, in the 12 states the survey covered. Gingrich leads the president, 48 percent to 45 percent.
“My submission is that the White House has been panicking for a long time,” Limbaugh said.
He said the same poll found, in the swing states, the number of self-identified Democrats fell to 30 percent, from 35, since 2008.
“That’s since Obama,” he said. “The conservatism of the Republican field is not scaring away Democrat crossovers and independents. It’s not. And yet, the entire Republican establishment thinking is based on this false notion: that conservatism scares independents and forces them to run back to the Marxists and Socialists.”
