In the latest Gallup Poll, Newt Gingrich 37% … Mitt Romney 22% … Ron Paul 8%.
The momentum continues for Newt Gingrich and his run for the GOP Presidential nomination. Since early November 2011, Gingrich has gained 24% in the polls while Romney has stayed even. It would appear that most of Herman Cain’s support has gone to Newt. Mean while as stated at Hot Air, “Newt continues to crush Romney among tea partiers and seniors.”
Gingrich Does Better Among Conservative Republicans and Tea Party Supporters
Gingrich’s lead is especially large among conservative Republicans and those who describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement, with more than twice the level of support of any other candidate. Romney ties Gingrich among Republicans who are not Tea Party supporters, and the race is close among moderate/liberal Republicans.
Across the board, Newt Gingrich is surging in the polls. Most importantly in Iowa where a new NY Times/CBS poll has Newt ahead of Romney by 14% … 31% to 17%. As it stands now, Gingrich could win Iowa, place second in NH and win South Carolina. All this as Romney looks on one month before the GOP primary/caucus season begins and wonder what hit him and his candidacy.
