good night from new york. we'll see you on greta wire in about 10 seconds. good night. that watch fbn. a long list. bob beckel. danaperino and five clock in new york city and this is the five. >> we're ready. our top story, romney's bold prediction on the eve of the important florida prediction, mitt romney says he has this one in the bag. >> i anticipate doing well. we've got a number of states coming up. i think i'm going to do well. i'm going to do the work that is necessary to get my message out. the change that has to be brought to washington. how it gets done and those
messages are connected with people. my expectation i'll become the nominee. >> he didn't say in the bag. we have to add it sound a little hipper. >> so for a long time he is just too mellow. he doesn't nice. that was a rap on hip nierm long time. i think he is the goldielocks, just the right amount of confidence, right on par where the polls say he is. you aren't going to have the support. especially your big fund-raisers if you are out there and not projecting to be able to win. if you are not able saying to win, why would people support you? >> what do you expect him to say. i expect him to finish a strong third. he suffers what i call hmdm dsm which is handsome dude disorder.
people get stuck because you are handsome and you end up not trying too hard. it ruined my life la la of laugh. >> he boastful and he is more, is it paying off? it seems like the polls are favoring him. >> a couple things, keep in mind this is most diverse state, ohio is most respected state in the whole. gingrich was able to control his message in a state like south carolina which was very conservative state across the board. so now that you are look at the polls for a second. this most telling example he should be optimistic. we had three polls, nbc merit poll, if you see that 42-27. the other poll is 45-25, i
believe. >> 43-29. >> and tampa bay poll has romney 42-21. they are all closing at the same time. they are all usually right when they are within two or three points. he may be on his way to a big win. >> if it's a big win, is it going matter because newt is very strong on the air saying he is not getting out. he will take this all the way to the convention. >> true. a lot what is going on right here, romney found his voice in the last debate. he had a great debate and it started the ball in the right direction. newt gingrich hadn't done anything to change that. it kind of snowballing 5%, 7% and now it's up to 11. clear average has it up to 11.5%. so romney is doing everything right and gingrich has had hard moments. he hasn't had it this time
around. >> it's funny, i wonder how much you have to do right. you are waiting for the electorate to settle down. it's like before marriage before you play the field. then you get back with mr. right. >> remember that. [ laughter ] >> but you know, we start on this pretty early. now, the eastbound electorate is starting to settle down. >> i'm still -- but i take it back. one of the things you are going to see happen. if gingrich brings this plus 10 -- i think he will -- the pressure for newt and santorum to get out is going to increase. one of the things you are going to force them out you beonlt get adelson to write another check in las vegas. he is the guy that gave $5 million for newt in south carolina and his wife gave $5
million in florida. the amount of money spent in florida is an all-time record. and they spent 2-1 over gingrich. >> romney is widening the lead without the help of florida republicans like jeb bush, rick scott, the current governor. those would change, if it's romney but gingrich, that may changes things. >> i think their support in the general will be a lot more important whoever the republican candidate is. >> and not to have chris to endorse him but then he was popular and he endorsed mccain and that ended the thing. >> he has the umbrella to say we support you. >> i don't think so.
an endorsement by president bush 41 doesn't mean jeb bush is campaigning for us. "new york times" wrote about the silence deafening in florida. but i don't think necessarily -- >> how do you explain that. >> i think it's the republican primary. he said himself he is not competing but the two endorsements that made news over the weekend herman cain endorsed newt gingrich and sarah palin didn't fully endorse him but would keep the process going. >> i hereby enthusiastically endorse newt gingrich for president of the united states. >> i know that speaker gingrich is a patriot, speaker gingrich
is not afraid of bold ideas. >> you need somebody is who is engaged and isn't afraid to shake up that establishment. if for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for newt. [ laughter ] >> you want to go. >> how urgent is your. >> i love the fact, rage against the machine and use it to describe conservatives going up against the republican establishment. i will say only influences people that were already there, right? >> what it does, i'm looking at analytical standpoint it puts the tea party behind newt against the establishment. i am not sure what establishment means. but the fact that the tea party has been exposed here because newt has become, for better or worse, the party of the tea party and the candidate of the
tea party. >> by default. >> and is going to get rolled because its fairly small any majority of the republican party. >> not a small minority. >> tea party frankly hasn't gotten solely behind newt. we had governor nikki haley get behind romney. jim demint could be spokesman for the tea party if he wanted to be, he endorsed mitt romney. >> two people more obvious? >> i would say they are very big voices in the conservative base. just because mitt romney win florida is game over? they say on fox if he comes second showing he'll go on. >> he faces four caucuses, nevada, michigan and maine. you've got a situation here i don't think anybody can keep
upwards, there is no debate. >> without money you can't move around and start things up. in a caucus, it's heavily based and nevada he has huge mormon community. romney has everything open to him. >> if romney does win it. it becomes a watershed moment for him. everything starts and romney's campaign's mind, everything starts to fall in the place. on the endorsement point if you look at mccain and palin and newt is significant. it will play out for a while. i do think that gingrich -- >> you can't say palin endorsed newt gingrich. >> you can say supporting him. she is talking about it and telling people to vote. if you look at the people, gingrich one congress and six
former colleagues that actually worked with him when he was speaker have endorsed him, as well. that in a way if you want a tea party versus establishment that speaks to some people. >> good information. up next. you saw this in key states. we have more coming up on the five. don't forget to e-mail us. we're right here the
presidential election come out. you see romney leading president obama by 48-47. then we do a poll each one of the four candidates, president obama leading gingrich 54-40. and ron paul a 7% margin against ron paul and then with rick santorum i believe, yeah, it's of 7-point margin. i tell you what it tells me about the newt problem. newt comes out fourth against obama in these swing states. to explain these swing states is the last election polls will determine. they include florida, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, nevada, colorado. states like that. >> indiana? >> bob: no, we conceded that. but the point is these are the
states that will determine this is which is why the president of united states campaigns in those states. nonetheless, it tells me newt sort of nationally as well. this is a result of this primary. >> in terms of electability. >> bob: the republican nomination is tied with president obama the trouble he is in right now. he has not served them well. >> eric: people realize they have to pick a candidate to go up against obama. we should vote for romney or obama. if you said generic republican versus obama what happens then, bob? all of a sudden the candidate beats obama. >> bob: but you are past generic. we're now into real people.
so what it tells you why should 48-47 as president with low ratings. what i'm saying it's not about obama. it's about primary season so far. mitt romney has a real problem among independent voters right now. he didn't before this thing started. it tells you the way people are looking at this, they don't like it. >> dana: in this poll as well, people who said he would be voting for romney is second choice. second choice is not gingrich it was rick santorum with 11% still undecided. one thing very soon, you would see it turn to a way from necessity neighboring republican because we'll have somebody. >> kimberly: the republicans have to figure out way to make an affirmative case to why they should be president.
>> dana: you can't just run against somebody you have to be for somebody. i think president obama is having trouble. he is running against them. both sides have to find their voice on that. >> this is why newt has to constantly be on tour. in a way he is like beatle mania but beatle songs it's all the great right wing, we know beatle mania was better than the beatles. >> bob: they are going to try to shut it down. one last thing before we get out of this segment. obama is listed by gallon up as the most polarizing president going back to the 1950s. second to him was bush. but obama is the worst. >> 68%. >> bob: is it about obama or sor it about electorate?
among the democrats, very strongly -- >> about that poll. take a look at it. what does it tell you? politics is getting more partisan. >> bob: that is a very right assessment. this is reflection is what is happening. both in terms of legislative in terms of the dialogue. >> kimberly: basically you say the president of the dmc instead of the president of the united states. >> bob: but you have to keep in mind this is between republicans and democrats. you don't have independents in here yet. >> i don't think obama is polarizing but i think he is the worst president in the history of the world. if anybody disagrees with me, i will hit them. what is really polarizing in politics is the race card. that is why you are seeing
polarization. nobody likes to be called a racist. that angers a lot of people. when you tie the race card with class warfare you really have something. >> bob:. >> bob: it's about, don't hit me but a i'm going to disagree with you. >> you put that graphic, he is last president in the row. >> the race card has followed. >> breaking news right here on fox. todd palin is going to go on the campaign trail. we had an announcement in florida. >> bob: we need to get out of here. i have a problem with republican congressman alan west. he made some disgraceful comments over the weekend. we'll play them for you next. hope you are listening, alan, baby!

the hell out of the united states. then you didn't say the policy. 20% or 22% who believe what pelosi and reid says. if you 100% of person and we're 20% and we're not going anywhere. you are taking that tea party job with you. >> in terms like having press secretary was called by the speaker and the leader of the senate a liar and a loser. i mean sitting canned they are chief. greg has a point. >> al sharpton, black panthers, jess describe jackson. public enemy. eric dison. we celebrate outspoken blast leftists.

representative. i don't care. i already gave him credit. >> you can't discount the way he started that sentence. he said take your message. take your message and get out. it's not get out of america. >> who is he? who is this fellow. i don't care if he lieutenant colonel but he has no right to take our message anywhere. this is our country. if he doesn't like, he ought to get the hell out. >> kimberly: but it's just the country of the democrats, free exercise rights. he has a right to see what he feels. it was very approving audience. there nothing wrong with he said. >> bob: i would never say get the hell out of this country. a lot of it make some sense to me. but this guy for somebody who is
hater. he is hater. it's not. that is hateful statement to those of us who want to be able to say what we want to be able to say. >> he fought for our freedom. he risked his life for free market capitalism. he hates socialism, social idealism. >> bob: my dad was much more liberal than i am. my dad fought in world war. but i need to spriam -- excuse me, because he was in the military. he hates the b.s. of going on. >> the only is anything he said worse the black panthers?
