Skip to comments.Newt Crashes, Romney Soars On InTrade
Posted on 12/17/2011 4:00:51 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
Newt Gingrich's fortunes on the prediction betting website InTrade have collapsed in the past three days, amid an unrelenting assault from all sides in the Republican field.
After pushing close to 40 percent on the site, he's down to a 16.5 percent chance of winning the nomination. Mitt Romney, who fell as low as 42 percent on the site last week, is back up to 64 percent.
The radical swing is a reflection of the growing unease on all sides about Gingrich's viability as the nominee - and recent polling showing that Gingrich's rise to the top in Iowa was just a blip.

Let's go Santorum! Let's go Bachmann!
Heck, why not. Even Perry.
Let's drive a real conservative to the nomination!!!!!!
What part of “I will never vote for Romney” do these people not understand?
We DON’T want another Dole another McCain! #nonromney #antiromney
Newt has my vote!
the powerful newt? lol..ya ok
Bachmann liked Newt:
Look at their accomplishments. Newt allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.
Romney, on the other hand, vehemently denied Ronald Reagan and aligned himself with Ted Kennedy and the left. Romney accomplished installing liberal big government programs, defended and promoted Roe v Wade and legalized abortion as settled law, advocated and implemented RomneyCare with its liberty killing government mandates against formerly free citizens and its taxpayer funded or subsidized and mandated abortion procedures. He ran and governed to the left of Ted Kennedy on the gay agenda resulting in gay marriage in Massachusetts. He appointed liberal judges and liberal appointees throughout his government. Under his leadership conservatism and the Republican party was all but destroyed in Massachusetts.
Romney is one evil liberal progressive. No way in hell will MittBots be allowed to support this abortionist, big government, socialist scumbag on FR!
Guess my message isnt clear enough. I have to keep repeating it and zotting would be MittBots.

not sure anyone commenting on this thread even knows what Intrade is and whose opinions it normally reflects.
Bob Dull II.
Yes, there are still forty seconds left until the nomination, so let’s defeat Newt and throw up a Hail Mary pass that some four-percenter will pull-out a miracle, last-second, come-from-nowhere, unprecedented upset victory for the ages - the greatest upset ever, EVER. All we have to do is get all the people who haven’t seen that Bachmann should be the choice and not Perry, that Santorum should be the choice and not Bachmann, that Perry should be the choice and not Bachmann, and that Perry should be the choice and not Santorum to suddenly all drop the candidate they are praying will be the one who pulls off the miracle victory and unite behind one of them. So which of you Bachmann supporters is ready to dump her right now and get behind Perry? Now is the time!!!
Then let’s all bitch that Romney won the nod.
Intrade had Giuliani winning and Palin about a 1000:1 shot for Veep. Stop pretending a gambling site is the authority on the GOP nonination.
Say, what are Perry, Bachmann, and Santorum at on Intrade, Halfman?
Stick with Newt. Everyone has had the chance to make their case, Newt has made it. He is the alternative to Mitt, period. There is no time left for fantasies about someone else winning the nomination.
I wouldn’t count Newt out yet.
Yep, it’s newt or Romney, the other have all proven themselves over land over and over and over again to be not up to the task
I’m with Newt!
Are you serious? Your dumb*ss attitude will give us Mitt - you bought their crap, hook line and sinker.
Newt has my vote also.
F.R. members are maybe 98% against Milt but F.R. members are a miniscule percentage of the voting population.
You’ll get weak romney and screw America for good and then you won’t be laughing - he and his crew, commies and all will be laughing at the dumb voters.
Could you please take a minute and explain Intrade, because I really don’t know what it is, and I see it cited a lot of times... thank you.
What fools these mortals be!
