Newt Gingrich leads Mitt Romney by more than 20 points in the important early-voting state of Florida, according to a new Insider Advantage poll.
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....

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!! Loved his discussion on energy, among other things.
How a bullet list of the main points in Newt’s speech covering his energy policy?
Newt is leaving the pack in the dust.
He’s going to go all the way, Romney must be having a fit....good.
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.”
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.
Excellent post, Mein Herr.
well... Romney could always convert to Christianity and try again in 2016, or maybe run in his own party as a Democrat.
Thanks. That’s as good as a bullet list. Looks like Newt is on the right track.
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.
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 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!!!!
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.
So long as Romney is denied the delegates, I’m pleased.
Thank you Sud. The attacks on this site against Romney makes it seem as if he had never done anything remotely conservative. These facts need repeating often.
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 am more and more convinced Romney doesn't want the job.....he's like the carrerr college student who never graduates...he likes being in the 'process' of and wearing the title of "candidate for Pres."...
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.
Thank you for the highlights, caww.
60 minutes of EXCELLENT, competent solutions.
1. Individual Mandate.
2. Global Warming
5. “The Era of Reagan is Over!”
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.
