I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose and devoted and dedicated to -- Does that look familiar you -- -- -- campaign deja Vu is busy and attacking Mitt Romney looks familiar that's because you may have seen it back in 2008.
And of Newt Gingrich's campaign strategists had their way.
-- be seeing it again titled a tale of two Mets it's shows Romney shifting positions on abortion and gun control the kicker though.
It's -- Romney's 2008 opponents.
And now 2012 also.
Porter John McCain.
Indirect campaign decided not to recycle the -- but -- -- -- posted it on the web.
-- many pundits are saying that Mitt Romney has a big target on his back with his rivals hoping to knock him down ahead of South Carolina.
It's already getting heated of course and joining us now -- and insights on how this is all gonna play out.
Pollster frank -- she's been keeping close watch all the drama he's joining us now frank received thank you.
And the -- so much better here in New Hampshire there was an Iowa last week well that's a plus definitely.
Okay this is crunch time Santorum has raised a couple of million dollars from his -- second place win.
And now he's counting on doing really well in New Hampshire bullied by that second place showing.
Let's hear what he said Tuesday night.
The essential issue in this race.
Whether we will be a country.
Believes that government can do things for us better than we can do for ourselves.
Or whether we believe.
As our founders.
That rights come to us from god.
And -- he gave us those rights he gave us the freedom to go out and live those live those rights out to build a great and just society.
Not from the top down.
But from the bottom.
Well -- faith that calls that says live free or die that plays well in New Hampshire but can Santorum social conservative message one that had a big -- -- -- Iowa voters.
Go the distance in New Hampshire.
-- the economy the big center stage issue there in the granite state.
We -- -- good points about the New Hampshire motto in the Republican voters here take that motto very seriously.
In any campaign that focuses either on freedom of the constitution.
Is gonna be well received here New Hampshire.
Which other point is is accurate that -- I was a socially conservative state New Hampshire is economically conservative state.
But the Santorum fight is something that's very different among Republicans that you don't often hear from the bottom up.
Santorum is reaching out to blue collar workers -- to -- a factory workers to a segment that isn't always thought of as traditional Republican.
He's trying to widen the Republican vote.
And he feels that he could be more successful.
Among those people that tend to be quite frankly swing voters and remembered him -- that's independence that's those people vote.
It's -- pretty Smart strategy here.
Are you expecting to see a bigger turnout -- on independence.
I am expected to -- both because of Rick Santorum and because of Ron Paul.
The two of them don't take a traditional Republican.
I'm a language specialist and they take a very different approach is not just about business to Rick Santorum.
And for Ron Paul it is all about the constitution.
Which has appeal among independents -- don't like either Republicans or Democrats.
-- isn't it -- but from Ron Paul this week and -- get your take on what he's saying there.
This challenge him this go back to this real old fashioned idea is very dangers idea.
That's -- that cost a shot.
And too often those who -- limited government and small government.
They forget the invasion all of your privacy.
Big government and we have to emphasize protecting your personal -- senior economic rights are what the government supposed to do they're not supposed to run our lives or spend.
So let me ask you this even if he does well in New Hampshire and he gets the money.
He doesn't have a strong organization going forward in South Carolina for example could that hurt him.
Well he's got the most incredible organization these last two states.
23 days ago.
He held a rally with 700 people showed up and and Ron Paul has a constituency that doesn't need a traditional.
-- organization and that's young voters first and second time voters it's incredible how much support he has among them.
Let me ask you really quickly though about the attack -- the attack ads have been going on full steam this week particularly with Gingrich going against Romney.
He is determined to step into -- park show the differences and yet it's been very.
It's been very bitter scenes from Gingrich's part how do you think that's gonna play New Hampshire.
The voters don't wanna know what's wrong they wanna know what's right and they wanna know where you stand and I think that that's what's so important tonight.
In the debate and the one tomorrow.
That they're looking to know where these candidates differ if Gingrich talks about accountability he will succeed in this challenges.
If it comes across as negative -- he won't we're going to be talking -- which tomorrow night at 9 PM the fox news network we've got a pre primary special.
-- have two segments with the former speaker and -- and asked him that very question that you just asked me tomorrow night at 9 PM.
Great we'll look forward to that frank thank you so much for joining us now -- appreciate it.
