Newt Gingrichs surge to the top of the GOP presidential race has given him a nine-percent lead over long-time frontrunner Mitt Romney.
In the first national scientific public opinion poll since Gingrich garnered a key New Hampshire newspaper endorsement, likely 2012 Republican primary and caucus voters favored Gingrich over Romney by a 32%-23% margin, with Herman Cain at 14%, Ron Paul at 6%, Rick Perry 5%, Michele Bachmann 4%, Jon Huntsman 3%, someone else at 4%, and no opinion at 11%

This just shows that 55% of the base voters have lost their minds.
Ooooh... it’s a “scientific” phone poll of 499 (not 500, not 498, but 499) Republican voters who said they’d vote in their state’s primary.
I refuse to believe that American voters accept Gingrich’s advocating of amnesty for illegal aliens as a course for this country. It just doesn’t make sense
Pffft. Blog polling. Poll,scmoll.

National polls are meaningless.
You mean like 10 people per state?
Well I guess Obama will win re-election because all the Gingrich hating conservatives will sit out the election with heads up their asses just like 2008 with McCain. They are like a bunch of spoiled brats who throw tantrums when they don’t get what they want. I think I dislike them more than liberals. At least liberals stick together. But they are also mentally deranged.
That may be because it’s not amnesty.
You don’t make sense.
So who is your choice?
be ready for mass-amnesty. I wonder if US citizens are still allowed to vote after Newt is done.
I will never ever vote for that scumbag lying amnesty activist global warming nut
Yes it is.
Perhaps is shows that folks see closing the border and deporting recent illegal immigrants as a great WORKABLE step toward stopping illegal immigration?
Detractors know people are too lazy to read an 11 step plan, so they just throw the “amnesty” lable on it, in hopes of moving support to some loser.
Nice try but if Gingrich goes down in flames as he will if he’s the nominee then it will be for the same reason that McCain did: loss of independents. Unprincipled RINOs and their supporters should stop trying to blame the base for their own shortcomings.
Conservatives don't "hate" Gingrich, he's not important enough to have that strong of a feeling about. We do not want him to be the Republican presidential candidate because he is a progressive, pro-amnesty, pro-single mandate, pro-global warming BS, professional lobbyist who will advance the big idea, big government, liberal cause. On top of that, he is probably the weakest candidate when it comes to defeating Obama. That's all, no hate.
I get plenty skeptical when people start throwing the S-word around. Especially these days.
I can live with Gingrich. I cannot abide Romney.
