In a Rasmussen poll released on Monday- "Romney with 45% of the vote to Obama’s 42%. Even Ron Paul was polling only 8 pts behind Obama. I said it before and I will say it again Newt is not going to get the women's vote.

Or anyone that can accept the fact he is NOT Presidential caliber.

Even the worst President America has EVER seen bets Gingrich in the polls.

Like I said earlier. A vote for NEWT is a vote for OBAMA.

“I said it before and I will say it again Newt is not going to get the women’s vote.”

Even if he promises and crosses his heart not to cheat on his current wife, and dsays he will not treat voters like he treated his other wives.

Under withering attack from the establishment Republicans, no wonder. This is the mid-90’s all over again. Who passed the Contract With America, produced balanced budgets 4 years, drove Welfare Reform, pushed tax reform, and was Speaker of the House when the economy blasted off after the 94 election? I am not in love with all things Newt, but this attack from the moderates will take us all down.

Even under a totally divided GOP base, Newt is within 10 points, and Obama is still under 50%. These polls are crap.

“I am not in love with all things Newt, but this attack from the moderates will take us all down.”

If he can’t even handle attacks in the primary, how will he ever survive once dems pull out the long knives for him? Which they will viciously do the moment he clinches the nomination. It’s no coincidence that all the recent attacks come from republicans who know him, and dems are being very very quiet. Even Obama’s best girl Nancy got shushed.

Seems to me he’s handling the attacks quite well. The point is that does have a conservative history and was the primary reason that Clinton had to adopt the Triangulation strategy. Who do you think was the right side of the triangle that dragged Clinton to the middle?

The fact that all this is getting aired out and he is still in a strong position takes the shock factor out of the Obama do-over attacks next year. Gingrich has risen because he has been aiming his attacks where they belong - Obama. He makes a strong, cogent case for conservatism and in spite of his flaws, he has a real record as Speaker. He was very strong when he first became Speaker and was beaten down by the press and weak moderates and he faltered. I can say from the ‘95 shutdown which was Clinton’s fault, Newt was strong and paid a big price for it. There is no candidate in this field better prepared with real experience. None of the others come close.

I don’t understand comments like this.

If you try to tear down Newt before we have a suitable replacement, we’ll only end up with Romney. Is that what you want - the open socialist? The one person running who’s even worse than the wobbly RINO?

The moment another candidate eclipses Newt in the polls, I’ll be right there with you kicking him to the curb. But until then, sadly, he’s our man.

Even George W. Bush was “progressive” in the Newt sense. It’s an endemic problem. A completely constitutionally conservative Republican would be treated like a green Martian who would have to spend 75% of the time explaining why he believes what he does.

Rasmussen said this morning in WMAL that even Huntsman or a late entrant had a chance. But remember this, McCain would have beaten 0bama in 2008 had it not been for the fire in the Reichstag.

Between Michele, Rick P., Romney and Grandpa Ron, Newt is being hit hard by a sum of at least 40% of the GOP base, probably higher. He has climbed on a shoestring budget because he has a strong message and conservative bona fide. That is the point I was making. Newt has conducted himself like a patriot during the entire primary campaign and is now only responding to the garbage that is coming from the other candidates. He is doing very well.

Gingrich is under attack by both the Republican and Democrat Establishments while Obama is not.

If Romney gets the GOP nomination, he will not have the smooth ride you imagine. The Establishment will turn on him just as they did on John McCain after building him up.

Romney or Hunts is better than newt if we are forced to pick a RINO.

It will take one hell of a lot of fraud to get Obama to 50%, much less 53%. He only got about 52.5% with full promotion and support from the media. I think you are being pessimistic. I look at what is happening in Wisconsin, a blue state for a long time. Scott Walker has survived a massive leftist attack by not backing down. He holds a majority that for sure has some misguided people who voted for Obama. We need a strong fighter in this war. There is none stronger in this field than Newt.

I think you might want to reconsider this scenario.

10 points down. Just about where Reagan was to Carter at this point in 1979. Once people focus on the incumbent, pretty much ANY Republican will have a cake-walk.

...other than Romney, who almost guarantees us a Third Party run by a conservative.

Newt is now getting the “treatment” that Cain got last month, which Palin got ay the start of the year. Their lust for power is insatiable, and the Establishment going all out to make sure that no outlier displaces “their”candidates.
