Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich-Brilliant Strategy -- Stay In Race and Eventually Win Nomination
Posted on 03/14/2012 6:08:00 AM PDT by mitchell001
Newt Gingrich has crafted a reasonable comeback strategy considering his predicament and his goals for the country. Here are the cards that Newt has. He has built a tremendous and growing volunteer network. He has the ability to frame the most important issues facing the government. Notice that the media loves to schedule and interview Newt. Also, President Obama and Jay Carney are replying to Newt Gingrich's $2.50 per gallon and oil drilling proposals. As Newt stays in the race, Romney has to spend money on negative ads to attack and bring down both Santorum and Gingrich. If Newt stays in Romney has little chance to garner greater than 30 percent of delegates in each primary. If Newt drops out, there is a greater chance that Romney will knock out Santorum and win. Now, if Romney does not get enough votes to clinch the nomination, there is a chance that Newt's stature will continue to rise, and he will continue to showcase his skills, plans and abilities and will appear more presidential and electable than Santorum. Newt's delegate count may approach or pass Santorum's delegate count. This is the 60 day discussion that will begin at the end of June at the end of the primaries. At that time, Gingrich and Santorum may agree to a joint ticket with one or the other at the top of the ticket. Newt owes this strategy to his large volunteer network and to the country. As time goes forward, more and more Americans will want Newt Gingrich on the National Ticket so we citizens can benefit from his experience, ideas, plans, reforms and doable goals for the country that we love.
As Newt remains, the conservative voice continues to be heard! He may be able to chase Mittens far enough to the right to be left-center!
Put on your flame suit.
Are you ready for the tirade from Santorum people that Newt has been paid by Romney to stay in, otherwise he would leave and Rick would win in a landslide?
Are you ready for that??
but “Mitten’s” would never be trustworthy regardless.
Wish you were right, but a non-stop campaign to impugn Newt’s character and the motives behind his staying in the race is about to begin. I agree with you about Newt’s superiority in both his platform and message, as well as his ability to compellingly present them. He has single-handedly decreased Obama’s poll numbers via his $2.50/gallon energy plan, and put Obama on the defensive. Has either Romney or Santorum been able to do that?
According to some fast sloppy math on my part, there are approx. 1200 delegates left to be had. Mitt needs at least half (50%)to get over the 1144 point. Newt staying in will hopefully insure that does not happen. I LOVE Newt!
It’s over, Ralph.
Vanity posts aren’t news.
Newt isn’t going to win anything. The majority of voters don’t like him.
No way you could convince anyone at a convention that a guy who only was able to eke out a win in two southern states should get the nod.
Newt will mop the floor with Obama in any debate, that alone gets my vote. I don’t care if he wins or loses, just to have him show the world that the smartest man in America is really nothing more than a 3 Card Monty sharpie. The 80% with less than a high school education will still support Obama either way.
Go Newt !
Has Bahdad Bob been hired to do Gingrich PR?
I am not sure why Newt lost in AL and MI but certainly voters must have heard his ads there. So it is a concern for me. But it may be as simple as voters there preferred the bible centered family orientation of Santorum rather than the Churchillian roar of Gingrich against the establishment. All I can say is thank God Romney didn’t win; he is a real snake and his Mormon religious backers are beginning to look like a Scientology cult to me.
A brokered convention will give Newt a shot at showing he stands out from the others in knowledge, speech, vision and command presence.
Anyone looking at what happened yesterday should see that Newt lost in two of the ‘Reddest’ in the south and the Political/Social brethren of Georgia. If he can’t win there then where can he win?
