Well, it was fun while it lasted, but Newt Gingrich’s numbers are imploding.
Seriously, this makes Rudy Giuliani’s flame-out in 2008 look look like when Saddam set fire to half the oil wells in Kuwait.
PPP notes that, “Gingrich has now seen a big drop in his Iowa standing two weeks in a row. His share of the vote has gone from 27% to 22% to 14%.”
He’s lost almost half of his support over the past 2 weeks.
His campaign isn’t doing a Dorian Gray, it’s a face melting Raiders of the Lost Ark thing that he has going.
FWIW, I think that the cause of his numbers dropping is not that he is saying batshit insane stuff, but because people are starting to realize that he is doing so as a sacrifice at the church of Gingrich, and that there is nothing that he wouldn’t say to sate his own ego..
One wonders if
RuPaul Ron Paul starts getting some coverage of his decades long history of explicitly blatant racism if he wins Iowa.
I’m sick and tired of the press ignoring this, because he gives good article.
