Marital Infidelity, Negative Campaigning and the Ressurection of Newt Gingrich - Page 2
A question may be asked why or how come Gingrich has managed to do this, namely, come from the dead, twice, and the answer is simple: Obama, the state of the economy and yes, Mitt Romney, luck and yes, the indefatigable Newt himself.
Although in the eyes of many there is no appreciable difference between Obama and the state of the economy as the two are one and the same in their view, there is clearly a significant number of voters who are angry with Obama not just because of the economy alone, but for other reasons as well.
A few of these include those who believe Obama should not be occupying the office at all to begin with.
For whatever reasons reasons people don't wish to see Obama reelected, however, there is clearly no question his reelection prospects have been dim but only recently brightened by the yo-yo like Republican primary made better only by the emergence and reemergence of Gingrich as his potential rival.
Very few people, even among Republicans believe Gingrich can win a match-up with Obama and that’s true despite exit polling in South Carolina that showed that more of those voters believe Gingrich is more electable than Mitt Romney as against Obama.
Be that as it may be, the combined state of the economy, the fact that many voters want Obama out for that reason and any number of others, including even disillusionment of some who voted for him has made it possible for Gingrich to come from the dead twice as most of these voters are looking for someone to blood Obama’s nose and Gingrich is by far the ideal candidate for that.
The fact that every one of the other candidates who has occupied the exclusive space for “anyone but Romney” has come down crushing much as fast as they have risen to that spot, is another reason why Gingrich has been resurrecting from the dead and is at the verge of outlasting everyone who has occupied this apparently fatalistic spot.Continued on the next page
