The left media, in this case the mildly left, once again telling Republicans who can and cannot be their nominee. And Republicans eat it up.
If FreeRepublic is a barometer (and I believe it is); there was no candidate met with more skepticism than Newt. However, following the debates, re-examining his impact as SOH against all odds, and noting the lack of support from his former RINO colleagues (no cronyism there); Newt is being accepted as the most informed and most able individual to take down the incumbent.
FReepers who now support Newt are not ‘bowled over’ they are not cultists, they are not stupid - but realists.
