Daily Beast: Newt Gingrich has peaked, Ron Paul is surging. Is it showtime for Jon Huntsman? Mark McKinnon and George Caudill on the jumble that's likely to come after the caucuses.

Gingrich can't win. The guy is a corporate shill. No one trusts him.
We can agree on that, Evan. He's an untrustworthy character compared to all the other candidates, especially your buddy, Ron Paul. With Paul what you see is what you get, not a what shell is the pea under game. As my grandfather said, "as crooked as a dog's hind leg."
Who will be the new flavor of the week?
I think Newt has peaked. Even Glenn Beck said he wouldn't vote for him.
Ralph, I think we are seeing the results of all the time Newt invested in Iowa in the previous two years...probably more than all other candidates put together...he practically lived there. Once the Iowa decisions are made, I think we will see Newt's efforts plateau a bit. In fact, some polls already show a significantly diminished position over the past week. The Republican establishment is overpoweringly hooked on the concept of old party line name recognition which tends to play to both Newt and Mitt. In my opinion, that is the same mistake the conservative side of the aisle made in 2008 when they decided it was McCain's "turn to run". This election, at least from a conservative perspective, will hinge greatly on getting on message and staying there for the duration. A candidate, regardless of how popular they might be, will fail in their effort this time around if they cannot accomplish that task. As Bill Clinton demonstrated with his win in employing the focus..."it's the economy, stupid" the message must be on point and clear and hammered home at every opportunity with the American public. If that action does not take place, it will matter little who dominates the conservative nomination process. WB
I think you speak wisely. Sound bite debates and saying what they think voters want to hear no longer works. I'm not sure there is a Republican candidate who can rise to the task. There's too much division within the party.
Newt Gingritch has more baggage than Southwest Airlines. Only his doesn't ride free although he seems to feel the a couple mei culpas paid the frieght.
Actually I think he cannot and should not win the bid. The independents don't care for him. The teaparty confuses me with their acceprance of him/ Ron Paul may be the only credible politician on earth. The Republican Party successfully sidelined him in the last election. The real GOP only wants the likes of Karl Rove and his bandits in action. Aanyone else is a threat to their neo-conservative shell game. To me it's Ron Paul or no one atall.
Here are a bunch of the most recent polls:

Do you think there's still a chance that someone other than Romney or Gingrich will emerge and become the Republican nominee. Both Romney and Gingrich both have good, but not spectacular levels of support, and there is...

In light of the latest developments in the republican primaries i'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't see a path for Romney to win the nomination, I think after florida Gingrich runs away with it.

I am so happy to see the conservative vote rallying around the Newtster. You are absolutely right to abandon Romney. He's a shameless flip-flopper, he wears funny underwear and while he does love big...

The Trump campaign is a mess. Fundraising for both Trump and the RNC is so bad, the RNC sent out a last-minute plea to Sheldon Adelson to give $6 million just so they could fund the convention in a few days. ...

Obviously, I'm on the puter. The TV is on in the living room, and I think I just heard that Huntsman is dropping out and backing Romney. Anyone know if I heard that right?
