Ipsos' latest poll carried out on behalf of Thomson Reuters shows a rally for Newt Gingrich among Republicans but this popularity doesnt translate into political strength when it comes to the national Presidential race, where Romney fares much better against Obama than Gingrich does.
Key findings include:
Newts back! Since our last head-to-head matchup (October 2011) for the Republican primary, Newt Gingrich has rallied significant support and now leads at 28% among Republicans, 10 points ahead of Romney (18%) Among both Republicans and Independents together (as you know, in some states Independents can vote in the Republican Primaries), Gingrich is slightly lower on 25%, with Romney still on 18%
In a one-on-one matchup between Gingrich and Romney, Gingrich leads by 13 points (52% vs. 39%); this lead narrows to 10 points when we factor in Independents as well.
Despite his lead over Romney among Republicans, Gingrich suffers in comparison to Romney when it comes to the Presidential head-to-head comparisons: the question remains as to whether Gingrich is electable on a national level.
President Obama leads all Republicans in the head-to-head matchups, and these ratings have improved for the President since we last asked this question in late October...

True, and when a nominee is finally selected, Loon Paul will continue to attack him or her.
You must not be paying attention. They’re all attacking Obama.
And Newt is done.
“You must not be paying attention. Theyre all attacking Obama.”
Really? Because All I hear is “Newt is a Marxist” “Newt is a socialist”.
Maybe they are doing it off-camera?
And clue us into your candidate so we can all laugh at how much flak they will start to get if they ever bother to get past 6%.
Or are you going to pretend that they are so clean that that wont happen?
He also has an ad out with Obama in it looking sheepish and weak.
My candidate is any of those running except for Newton and Myth.
Is that you Karl?
Better tell every major and minor polling company in the world, because they all think Speaker Gingrich is in the lead...
Who is Milt???
