Gingrich has 41 percent support while Romney has 17 percent. Businessman Herman Cain, who is fading in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment and infidelity, sits in third place with 13 percent. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has 7 percent, Texas Rep. Ron Paul has 4 percent, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has 3 percent, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum rounds out the field with 1 percent....

Looks like the same poll from a different source that Notwithstanding posted.

Newt Gingrich is way ahead, even with the margin of error.

You must mean this record:
  1. Led the "Republican Revolution" that put Republicans in control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years.

  2. Came up with the Contract for America and met the promise that every single provision would see a vote on the floor. Not all of it was enacted, but that was never the promise.

  3. First balanced budget in decades then balanced the budget for four consecutive years.

  4. Forced Clinton to accept tax cuts including the largest capital gains tax-cut in history.

  5. Forced Clinton to accept the huge restructuring of Welfare turning it into "Workfare."

  6. Got the Congressional Accountability Act passed that required Congress to abide by the same laws as private businesses.

    You mean that "sordid history where conservatism is concerned?" You mean the fact that of all the candidates, Newt is the ONLY one who has actually accomplished what the others keep claiming they want to do? [Perry and Huntsman have accomplished some of it on a state level]

    Yeah, that's really "sordid"--if you are a liberal. /rolleyes

Here’s an interesting take on falty perceptions of politicians:

“You must choose between two candidates for president.

One candidate smokes heavily, drinks heavily, admits to using drugs in college, and is very overweight.

The second candidate doesn’t smoke, only drinks the occasional beer, is physically fit, and is a decorated war hero. Which do you choose?

The punch line?

The first candi­date is Winston Churchill.

The second is Adolf Hitler. “

I disagree, I think Gingrich is a known commodity, and is still “more acceptable” than Romney at this point. Bachmann, Perry, and Cain were all candidates that have caught the attention of the conservatives in the GOP. After all of the rise and fall, I think conservatives are just at the point of Buckley: pick the most conservative candidate that can win. Gingrich looks to have put himself in the right place at the right time.

34 days til Iowa. Time is quickly running out.

It is long, over an hour, but some new stuff and some really good questions by the audience. Worth the time. IMO, it is becoming more evident that Newt is way above the others in knowledge (duh), experience, vision, communication skills, confidence, etc. It has taken me a while to go from Palin to assessing the other candidates, and now strongly leaning toward Newt.

Trust you won’t mind me listing the highlight applauses Newt got from your link as follows..Good stuff!

“If applause is any indication on what voters are reacting to from the former Speaker, here is a long laundry list of his hits during Monday’s town hall in Charleston”:

Defunding the National Labor Relations Board until a new board is seated.

“The government is subject to you.”

Defunding cities that declare themselves as “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants.

Defending the United States as part of the president’s role.

“Dramatically shrink the Department of Education.”

Students should get the grades they earn and teachers should have the right to discipline unruly children.

“There’s no good bills at page 2,600.”

Citing Obama’s debt-forgiveness plan for college students as ineffective.

“I don’t think you can fix (the EPA).”

“If you don’t have common sense, don’t apply here (at new Environmental Solutions Agency).”

“Waterboarding, by every technical rule, is not torture.”

“We’re not going to be intimidated in not defending the United States of America by the ACLU.”

Using litigation reform to ebb medical costs.

Establishing English as the official language of the U.S. government.

Ensuring immigrants gaining citizenship have “a serious understanding” of U.S. history.

Making deportation easier and not giving illegal immigrants the same rights as American citizens.

“There’s no illegal worker without an illegal employer.”

“(A 12.5 percent corporate rate) would actually mean that GE would pay taxes.”

Abolishing the “Death Tax.”

Repealing Dodd-Frank.

Replacing the Food and Drug Administration.

Putting a sign behind him after the inauguration that reads “America is open for business again.”

Saying Rep. Tim Scott was on his “short list” of running mates.

“We have no opponents except Barack Obama.”

“We will be back. You ain’t seen nothing yet.”

Not sure what you are asking, but there is discussion about energy/EPA throughout the speech and Q & A session. Near the beginning of his speech he talks about expanding energy production with part of proceeds going back to Feds and States. THAT I like and it is similar to what Palin did in Alaska.

Sure looks that way right now with two debates coming up soon.

I think the last one before the Iowa caucus is the one hosted by Fox on December 15.

Romney can’t break out from his stuck in GOP-E territory. LOL.

For those of you who still support Glenn Beck, here are his two picks for GOP candidate.

From the poll cited above

“Michele Bachmann has 3 percent, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum rounds out the field with 1 percent....”

He just had Rick nobody will vote forum, on his radio show. He had Michele stab Newt in the Bachmann on last week and more or less endorsed her shortly thereafter.

He will have Newt on soon. I don't know why? He was trashing Newt all morning on his radio show. Newt should cancel. FUGB.

I know exactly what you're saying....and I rather like the idea it's taking people time to come to the conclusion Newt is really the best man for the job. In the debates he woke me up to the idea we need to be considering what is best for the country's security....without that nothing else will matter if we aren't secure...in all ways!

I got off the “my favorite candidate kick” and really looked closely at where our country really is and who has the ‘ability’ to step up and DO what needs doing of.

It took time to investigate Newt's past and find the truth....I was impressed more and more at how strong his conservative views are and the consistency he has had over the years concerning these.

It's pretty clear , when you look, that Newt has accomplished more for conservatives in Washington than any other...and he's been successful at getting congress to get on board. He can and has MOVED CONGRESS to act.

I am content settling on Newt regardless of how the media and some on our side might bash his past....there's far more favorable accomplishments Newt's got under his belt than any missteps taken...and none which harmed our country.

Newt's on the move and I am glad!!!!

I like Santorum alot but he's just not getting the traction he needs to win this..and I don't see this happening without media coverage and they aren't giving it to him.

Bachmann is always lashing out and stepping on her own toes so whoever is running her campaign hasn't given her the right way to go at it. She did well, and more herself, at the CNN debate....finally seeing some of what she's made of! But I'm afraid the damage to herself by herself is done.

Newt can handle Beck....he's small stuff compared to other giants Newt has to deal with.

Excellent summary/bullet points, and well said regarding the path to supporting Newt for president. It was the debates for me as well. I really like his vision for America and since he is able to communicate his vision so well, I can see more and more people supporting him. This is exactly what kind of president we need. “He can and has MOVED CONGRESS to act” and he can and will move We the People to force congress to act.

In the SC speech he said something else I really like. ~~No American President has the right to side with foreigners, against the people and laws of the states of the US...” Newt gets it!!

With each speech Newt unveils more. I believe he said his full contract will be finalized by September and it will be on his web site. I am so looking forward to it.

Very well said. Some people just want a candidate who will repeatedly zing the President. Not that that’s a bad thing, but the goal must be to elect someone capable of accomplishing our policy objectives. No one can deny Newt’s accomplishments as Speaker.

I say that as an undecided who will ultimately vote for the anti-Romney.

I hope he remains stuck..however we haven't seen the BO machine at him yet...but it's disturbing Bachmann goes after everyone but Romney.

You must mean this record:

No, I meant everything you left out:

1. Individual Mandate.
2. Global Warming
3. TARP
4. Cap-n-Trade
5. “The Era of Reagan is Over!”
6. Scozzafazza
7. Limited Amnesty
8. Voted to create Department of Education
9. Voted for 1986 Amnesty
10. Called Ryan’s plan “Right-Wing Social Engineering”

These are not the actions of a conservative, but the actions of a professional politician.

These are not the actions of a conservative leader who actually believes in the conservative message and the issues involved including a limited federal government, but the actions of a calculating, finger-in-the-wind, politician.

If Newt is the answer, we’re in trouble.

I’m for Aboor. (Anybody but Obama or Romney)

Ditto. It is one thing to be for or against a particular candidate in the primaries, but when push comes to shove next November, Obama MUST go if our Republic is to survive. Because of that, we need to guard against eating our own during the primaries. Remember Reagan's "11th Commandment" - "Thou shall not speak ill of thy fellow Republicans." We need a unified opposition to Obama if he is to be defeated - a split party, or (worse) a 3rd Party bid by one of the losers, will guarantee 4 more years of Obama and a disaster from which we may never recover.

I will even vote for Romney if he's the nominee - because the General Election IS about stopping the greater of 2 evils (and it isn't even close between those 2). Yeah, I'll have to hold my nose to do it (especially on the issue of gun rights), and will likely get blitzed afterwards no matter who won such an election, but I at least know that Romney loves his country and will stand up to our enemies abroad (rather than literally bowing down to them), open up oil exploration, try to keep taxes low, put some limits on the EPA and the NLRB, etc. Obama is the opposite, he IS the enemy. Romney is more akin to a very weak and lukewarm ally - not ideal, but better than the alternative.

That all said, we need someone who can cogently articulate reasons why Obama is such a disaster and answer criticisms well. I wouldn't mind seeing Cain in there, but I think his star is fading. Newt is the next best thing, IMHO.

Please try to remember that we're not electing a saint or the Messiah, but a politician. Also remember that the perfect is the enemy of the good.

Yes he does...I had heard Newt say this before when Obama was bowing his head to toes on his "Trash America Tour"...Newt was furious as were most Americans who love our country. He's all in for our country and few have the understanding of it's greatness....and it's slide...as Newt does...and as you stated can communicate this to the people.

For this Newt will not agree to let America go under any international law governing our nation.. as too many politicians are referencing we should "look like" and agree to.

Though I agree with most of your post this particular statement I can't agree with. Romney will do all which his handlers tell him to do...and they do bow before other nations as they use their corporate investments to play the political and economic power games they are involved in. They are NOT devoted to this country but have their own political agenda and the power it welds on an international scale. Romney is simply their front-man....he hasn't had and will not have any decision making power apart from his handlers.

Good post otherwise Ancestthnter...and understood.

Bingo. Politics is a dirty and sordid field, but it matters. Since no one - NO ONE - gets everything they want, you have to learn that the rules of the game are that you win if you get 70% or more of what you want, and work on the rest later.

Definitely time to unify behind the most conservative candidate who has a shot at winning both the nomination and the election - Newt. That said, he'd do well (after winning some primaries and looking to be the likely nominee) to name several of the others in the field as likely Cabinet officers. As an example, Perry as Energy Secretary, Cain as Secretary of Commerce, etc. Maybe even Romney as Veep to unify the Party - all with the goal of defeating the Republic-destroying Obama and his minions.

Well, we’ll have to disagree - but Romney is my least favorite among all of the Pubbies except Ron Paul (Puhleeeeze, can this be his last campaign?). I would MUCH rather have Newt, Cain, Perry, Santorum or Bachmann be the nominee (though I don’t think that the last 2 have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning, and Perry has a serious case of GWB disease - he can’t talk his way out of a wet paper bag).

Where are they gonna go???? I had high hopes for Herman but put a fork in him; he's done. Even if all the allegations are lies; he's done. Or to Perry who's dumb as a coal bucket? Latest gaffe, he didn't know the voting age was 18 (Greta / FOX 11-29-11). Or kooky Ron Paul who wants to sing "Cumbya" with Iran? Or Michele (I'll kick my opponents when they're down for political gain when I don't know the difference in John Wayne the actor and John Wayne Gayce the child molester.) Bachmann? Or one of the two Mormon RINOs? That only leaves Santorum and bless his heart, he's gotten no traction in this race. Possibly because he was defeated by 19 percentage points in his Senate reelection bid, and he has the charisma of a foot stool. So, tell me; where are they gonna go, SoConPubbie?
