    23% of the Republicans say they won't vote for Gingrich... Does that mean that 77% of the Republicans are going to vote for Newt?

    We'll see! That's the wonderful part about voting (if the democrats don't use too much fraud).

    When someone wins elections so decisively it is REALLY hard to keep bobbling about how unpopular he is.

    23%?? That's good...so about 77% will, including some democrats that actually woke up and realized how screwed we are, and maybe another % of Libertarians will probably vote for him. I guess there's a very good chance Newt could win!!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reality check. If ALL the Republicans like a candidate and vote for him, and ALL the dems like someone and vote for him, the election is about a dead-even tie. If Newt wins the GOP nod, no dems will vote for him and 23% of the republicans will stay home.

    Newt would be a disaster for the GOP, especially looking at control of the House & Senate.

    Besides, he's too old, too fat, and can only win in the GOP primaries. Check Newt's electability in the general election...

    Is Newt too liberal?

    Or simply just a immoral dope?

    Newt is the republican version of Kato Kaelin, he's around but no one quite knows why.

    And do you think ALL democrats will vote? Doubt it....
    I know quite a few dems that will NOT vote for Obama again....
    Ron Paul is 76 - Reagan was 73
    Newt is 69. Too old?
    Being fat or not is not a qualification...sorry.

    Last Tuesday, only 18% said they would vote for Gingrich in the South Carolina Primary.

    So much for polls 10 days before voting.

    What does that say for polls 10 months before the vote? :eusa_think:

    It has jack shit to do with his age, or his weight. The problem is him - an amoral, corrupt, self serving, lying SOB. Easy.
