Hmm...so Gov Palin says she’d vote for Newt and the Next day he takes the lead after being behind by 11 in the most recent poll. Not too shabby.
If Newt gets the Piper Palin endorsement tomorrow that could close the deal.
But Newt needs to remember Alec Baldwin from Glengarry Glen Ross. ABC. Always Be Closing. Always. Be. Closing.

Jeltz, don’t take this wrong- I’ve been posting for a while that Gov. Palin should come out for Newt. But, I also said that she wasn’t going to back a loser- and if she did back him- she wanted to be seen as the one given him the last push.
I think she saw the momentum, and being the uncanny politician she is-— she jumped in just at the right time! God Bless her.
The polls only today caught up with the virtuoso performance and rousing vocal and standing ovation by Newt Gingrich in the debate Monday night. These polls have NOT yet had time to catch up with any measurement of Sarah Palin’s tepid remark expressing favor for Newt in only one state, South Carolina, just to keep the “vet” going. Likewise it will be at the ballot box on Saturday where the POLL of ALL POLLS will catch up with the breaking news tonight delivered up by Marianne the Vicious.
A Palin endorsement would do him no good and possibly hurt Newt in national polls, with many Republicans and most Independents who do not share the FR enthrallment with Sarah Palin. She knows that by now, and respects Newt enough to keep her mouth shut and to go with only “tepid” favor for him in but one single state.
Decent polls are three days rolling in order to capture the day to day in their entirety. This why the timing of this by Newt’s enemies is superb. The October Surprise is a Wednesday Surprise prior to the Saturday election. Time to get it distributed and NO time to counter forcefully before Saturday. The polls will be affected some, but could also backfire and actually stabilize again.
