Polls are showing Newt catching up with Romney. The latest Rasmussen Poll gives Newt a 6+% lead. Newt is shoring up his campaign in Iowa, where he wants to have a good showing, but counting on South Carolina as the primary he retires Romney as a candidate.
It is certainly possible that Newt could win the Republican nomination. The base is going for outrageous, overbearing and out-of-bounds this season, and Newt excels in each. The media make a big thing about how Gingrich’s immigration reform position, giving illegals in the US 20 years or longer a chance for citizenship, is a type of ‘amnesty’ hated by Republicans.
So what? Gingrich continues to throw heftier pieces of meat to the base than immigration. War with Iran, anyone?
Newt winning would be good news for Obama. Gingrich will sizzle like bacon in a fry-pan at any debate with Obama the Unflappable and come out with half the support of what he had going in.
Newt is pudgy, nasty, hypocritical, moronic and a boar. His only redeeming quality is shutting up. He could never run a disciplined campaign because he is so undisciplined himself. He could never get up at 4 o’clock in the morning to be at a campaign stop by 6. It would be physically impossible. And forget about the 3 am international emergency!
Nominating Newt would destroy the Republican Party. Long live the Newt!
