Listening to local radio here-they are saying the polls are tighting. Newt does a great debate he can get back on top-the negative ads are causing the problems-they are all day long running. Newt needs to say strongly that he is going to reform Washington and cut the government and work with Paul’s ideas about the currency. He has to take on the establishment (that if people want the same, vote Mitt)
Personally, I hope Romney has some polls that say he is up 8 to 10 points.
If he did, then he would go into tonight’s debate attempting to sit on a lead and play it safe.
When Romney has played it safe and tried to sit ona lead have been the times when Newt has made mincemeat of him.
Newt did not do as well on Monday because he was taken by surprise by how strongly Romney went on the attack.
Newt will be more prepared tonight but a defensive candidate is easier to debate than an offensive candidate.
