Sure does! “Democratic firm Public Policy Polling poll” Now why would they be interested in the GOP primary race?

It's just about time for state-controlled media to pulls some imaginary Gingrich bimbos (or bimbettes, as the case may be) out of their magic Republican scandal hat.

I am not enamored of Gingrich.

But I’d vote for him over Barak Romney.

That won't be necessary as Gingrich has provided real examples of his character issues. I love Newt and I can listen to him speak all day long. That said, if Newt is elected President expect a return to the Nixon Era of the GOP.

Newt's poll numbers should catch the attention of the DNC smear machine. Wonder what they will be dreaming up to "get" him?

PPP is run by a Democrat, however their polls tend to be pretty good - objectively speaking.

Well, it’s a good thing that the election is not today.

It’s not likely that Newt can sustain these numbers for 2 months.

He has nowhere to go but down.

hearing the grate one complain yesterday he doesnt like the infighting of conservatives....hello all the candidates pretty much suck when the front runners are Newt and Rohmney. I can go along with Paul and Johnson, i know many dont like them but we could at least get some candidates similar to those 2 not a one of them want to stick to the constitution.

On the brighter side, several other GOP hopefuls have nowhere to go but up.

Sorry, it makes no sense that Perry lost support because of illegals, but Newt who’s stance is more “liberal” than Perry on the issue is surging. What does make sense is that Perry came off as stumbling and ill prepared in the debates (at least at first), while Newt comes off as the smartest, most prepared of all the candidates. Immigration is not most important issue for most voters.

Here is a Florida poll from November 28, 2007:

Huckabee: 44%
Giulani: 18%
Romney: 13%
McCain: 10%

Two months later McCain won the Florida primary.

I’ll be moderately happy if I have to settle for him.

I met Newt 2.0 Monday here in Charleston at a small meet and greet.

I was surprisingly impressed - and happy to learn we have a sincere, humble, experienced, smart adult in the game.

Considering his campaign was in the ashes a couple months ago, very impressed.

I hope he has what it takes to endure the billion dollar sh*t storm coming his way.

Go Newt 2.0!

Language would be my bet. Perry said that if you wanted to decline in-state tuition to illegals you didn't have a heart. That got reported as Perry accusing his opponents of being heartless. Newt phrased his position on humanely enforcing immigration laws to protect families. I've yet to see anyone reporting that Newt called his opponents inhumane (I will admit I could have missed it though).

Well, I guess I’ll have to figure out something to do on election day, since voting will be a waste of time.

Vote for Obama, or Vote for Noot; either way we get obama’s policies.

Good point. Actually i hope the Pubs are stupid enough to give this geezer the prize. It will finally end the consevative wing of the democrat party . Imagine that gasbag spending all of his time defending his past . I can see it now , the bloated old white guy on stage with the young prince. No will care about what Mr Wizard has to say , they will recoil in horror at the site of the new McCain. Newt the fat face of the GOP. Same as it ever was. This will be funny to watch.

LOL! Weren’t you saying the same thing over 2 months ago?

You also must not get out much. Newt has steadily gone up over the last 4 months and is now solidly in front with strong 30% support numbers. And the voters who are supporting him, know full well about Newt’s long career.

It’s the main reason that Newt is now on top. It was us Reagan voters who helped put him there. And we will keep him there.

A conservative Congress could block Gingrich on amnesty, but it can’t force him defend the borders. Bush did nothing for 8 years and the problem just got worse.

Your so sweet to be concerned about us. We will all be ok, just look at all the NEWT PINGs that are occuring regarding his rising POLL numbers all over the country, just about every minute I get another PING.

That is a good thing, rejoice and be glad in it. You may remove yourself and have your pity party, we're not interested, BUT we will wait for ya'.

“Gingrich/Rubio 2012”!!! Keep dreaming. Rubio is not stupid. He will not strap himself to that fossil. He will wait until the end of O’s second term and run as the New and Young face of the party. He is a winner and will not go down with the Old Man ship like Palin did.

Newt’s policies are Mitt’s and Obama’s policies.

Newt was the inventor of the “Mandate.”

Newt wrote much of the legislation creating the Dept of Education.

Newt was a core sponsor of ANWR.

Newt was responsible for increasing the funding of the UN when he was speaker.

Newt had his fingerprints on every harmful piece of legislation that has come down while he was in office.

Gingrich has argued the first priority for immigration reform is tighter border control. He has pushed for Congress to pass a narrowly written emergency border bill to finish the border fence between the United States and Mexico in less than a year and have complete border control within two years.[107] In addition to greater border control, Gingrich has advocated for measures to discourage the hiring and harboring of illegal immigrants, such as shifting Internal Revenue Service resources to audit companies that employ illegal immigrants and cutting off federal aid to cities, counties or states that refuse to enforce immigration laws. He has frequently argued for using credit card companies to develop identification cards and a real-time system to verify citizenship.[107]
