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%

In a debate about his shortcomings Newt would kick your ass.
the problem is too many old bloods not enough new bloods who work.
in 2008 I remember seeing the republican clubs full of old clueless people who would vote for a can o spam.
I see this as a two man race between romney and everyone else. everyone else is whoever the media inflates. Next up is huntsman. He is a dead ender who only nyc effetes like.
It's a glorified letter to the editor. What a crock!
The only people I blame are the people that won’t cast a vote because they don’t get their way. And writing in a name is the same as not voting if the write-in name is a person who did not ask for a write-in. If the want to waste their right to vote I have no respect for them.
It’s still an opinion I agree with.
We heard this in 2008 too from the “moderates”. Vote for McCain you worthless ingrates so that after our “reach across the aisle” maverick wins we can throw you conservatives back in the closet where you belong. How about you do things our way for a change? It seemed to work out well in 1980.
That’s fine. You misrepresented it as a “story.”
Whatever, it’s an opinion from the Washington Times. Just because you don’t like it isn’t my problem.
I must concede, in certain areas such as this, Newt's expertise is far greater than mine.
I'm glad to help you correct your mistake.
What is this your revenge Frank? If you live through life with this kind of pettiness then I feel sorry for your loved ones.
I voted for Reagan. I voted for Goldwater. I voted for Nixon, GHW, GW, and McCain. Never voted for a third party. I believe in the two party system.
If you want Gingrich vote for him, he’s not even a moderate by Reagan and Goldwater’s standards imo. I prefer looking at his record instead of harping on his personal life and that itself is bad. But the media besides being liberal loves entertainment and Newt’s past will give them plenty of it. So much so that Obama will win by a landslide.
It is a long time until the Texas Primary. I will vote for the person then that is the most viable and the one I believe will beat Obama. If you perceive I have already made up my mind you are incorrect. But I will not write in a name nor will I vote for a third party unless there is such a ground swell that would guarantee that person could defeat Obama. Obama will not win by a landslide. He will win by the number of people that: don’t vote + third party + write-ins= Obama.
Good post, I agree. It’s still a long way off to Iowa and there’s plenty of time for conservatives to pick the right candidate.
I wonder if US citizens are still allowed to vote after Newt is done.
You have crossed over the line to sheer fantasy, drama queen. Please come back to reality your country needs you.
Does that mean that Herm is within striking distance?
Don’t know about Herm but Herb’s train is still making a choo. Every once in a while it musters up a choo choo.
Do you honestly believe that we can deport 11 million people? I agree with Newt and so do the majority of the people in this Country. Deport the criminals, and the people who haven’t been here long.. But come up with another classification for those who have been here for decades, are paying taxes, etc.. Not citizens, but something else. It is only practical because the USA has been an accomplice in this crime. We will never deport all these people, I do not care who is the President. Get honest with ypurself. Do you really think the US will deport whole families to go to Countries they have no ties to. It will never happen.
Thank you for using an before historic. :)
