We can now expect our October surprises in January and February.

Establishment GOP will pull out all the stops to deny us our want.

Mr. 25% just can’t seem to make the sale. As Newt points out: great marketing, plenty of money, lousy product.

Go Newt.

Anybody know how reliable this poll is? How did the poll do in South Carolina? Let us hope it is an accurate poll.

Romney was on Huckabees show tonight, you could almost see the cracks in the veneer, he’s rattled. Watch, he’s going to go much more aggressively against Newt and he comes across as nasty and sarcastic.

It would have to be one heck of a surprise. If they had it, they would likely have used it in South Carolina. If they do not before Florida, it will be far too late.

The magnitude of the win in South Carolina and the composition of the groups who voted for Newt mean this thing is actually all but finished. Santorum has lost his best hope to Newt in SC, where their numbers were greater. Romney’s 25% is nowhere near enough.

Amazing considering that “Mr. Gingrich and his super PAC have yet to air a single television ad in Florida. Mr. Romney and his super PAC have already spent nearly $7 million on advertising there. “

This is an accurate poll or at least it has been in Iowa, N.H. and S.C. I would also add there is plenty of time for movement and still a large undecided. But a collapse is hard to turn around in only a week or so.

Hopefully third party groups will attack Romney the liberal flip-flopper so that Newt can continue to do what he does best which is talk policy and solutions for this nation's problems.

The way it’s going now, Gingrich will match his last month December Florida poll in a few days when it was Newt 41% Mittens 17%.

If this poll holds, then Romney is finished in the south. And maybe finished in the entire country too.

Newt seems poised to break over 50% on the Florida Primary Intrade Contract (he’s now at 45%):

By contrast, Newt didn’t get this high on the South Carolina contract until Friday, the day before the primary.

And here’s the Newsmax story on this poll:

What’s interesting is that Paul and Santorum are actually pulling votes away from Romney far more than they take away from Newt. Newt is pretty much consistently in the 30s across all demos, but on the demos where Paul or Santorum surge, Romney’s numbers crumble. To me this says Newt has taken on a life of his own. He is now the frontrunner and the rest are battling it out as the non-Newts. Newt is now the acceptable standard-bearer of the party, and everyone else is competing for fringe tastes. No idea if these poll numbers will hold up, but obviously with each passing week, the race is likely to get less volatile and these numbers are likely to settle in place.

I hope so. Because a GOP nominee Romney would put the entire south into play. He must be stopped now.

They have been keeping things real quiet regarding this surge for Newt apparently. i came across a Marist poll done December 8, 2011 that showed Newt up by 15 points in Florida back then, and a 20 point lead in South Carolina back then as well. Not too sure on the accuracy of Marist polls, but found it interesting, as if it is accurate, early voting and absentee ballots have been coming back already here, I believe I saw 200,000 already listed, and that would totally bode well for Newt.

I am adding one more to the fold in the primary season this year- my youngest is champing at the bit to vote for the first time- shiny new voter ID hanging on the fridge, so I guess we will go tomorrow....

Woooo-hooooo. It is the grass roots folks. The Tea Party people. “We the people” who are pulling this off. Networking, the Internet, phone calls and conversations, neighbor to neighbor is what is doing it. We are choosing our candidate not the RINO establishment. GO NEWT GO!

PS: Better put Glenn Beck on suicide watch. He will probably be stark raving mad on tomorrows show which I will not be listening to.

Romney needs to be stopped because he is Mass liberal, but I think he would hold the south against Obama in a general. He would be weaker in the northern more liberal states. But his biggest problem is he does not have what it takes to win. No vision, no articulation, no intensity. Romney should drop out if he gets wacked badly in Fla.

Lol, heads are exploding in D.C. at this very minute.

This looks strange. Romney gets 0.0% of the 18-29 vote. In that age group Newt gets 31.6%, with undecided in 2nd place with 25.6%.

Have been flipping channels.

Heard Mitt say that Newt wasn't a business man he was K street lobbyist. Comment is getting picked up on MSM.

Newt needs to emphasize what his small business does. How much of his income is earned from the patriotic historical documentaries, books etc.

[If this poll holds, then Romney is finished in the south. And maybe finished in the entire country too.]

He needs to be finished. He is the least electable candidate, and has been for a long time. The GOP E may have lost their minds or maybe getting senile or else:

GOP E must think that Obama is unbeatable, else they are too cowardly to face the billion dollare Obama machine, or Romney bought them off by promising to give the down ballot candidates lots of money.

This war is going to continue until the base gets a better candidate that they find acceptable. Watch out GOP E will pull all sorts of dirty tricks to shaft the conservatives.

Interestingly, Newt has captured the "other race" demo by a whopping 75%. I wonder which voters fall into the "other" category. Could their strong support have something to do with the speech Newt's giving this week about sending the U.S. back into outer space?
