Does Newt Gingrich Have a Chance in 2012

01 Nov

In your opinion, does Newt Gingrich have a chance to win in 2012?  Even though he was left for dead just a few months ago, there are a growing number of people who think he could actually win the nomination in 2012.  Gingrich had a rough start to his presidential campaign, as many people on his staff left before his campaign had barely began.  In a sense, Gingrich has been campaigning for years, as he has kept himself in the media over the last few years.  It appears that Gingrich was preparing for this time to run for President.  With the perceived weakness of President Obama, he could win the presidency if he is nominated by the GOP in early 2012.

Gingrich has quietly been gaining support over the last couple months.  There have been several shifts in the 2012 GOP Presidential polls since the debates begun.  The biggest loser in the debates has been Rick Perry.  In my opinion, he has no chance to win the nomination.  People want someone who is prepared for the debates, and Perry does not appear to be prepared in any of the debates.  The GOP does not want someone who can’t debate against President Obama in the 2012 Presidential debates.  This is one of Obama’s main strengths, so conservatives need someone who can effectively debate against Obama in 2012.  Perry does not have the skills to be able to do this effectively, and it would hurt him if he was nominated in 2012.

The biggest winners in the debates so far have been Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich.  Mitt Romney has done well too, but he was already a front-runner among the GOP candidates.  Herman Cain has gone from an unknown candidate to the GOP superstar in recent weeks, and it is expected that he will continue to be popular as the debates move on.

Newt Gingrich has gained popularity too as more and more people see how he does in the debates.  He has an ability to articulate and explain his positions on major policy initiatives unlike many of the other candidates in the race.  Most people only know Gingrich as the candidate who resigned from the House of Representatives in the 1990s in the midst of many scandals plaguing the government at the time.  They know him as the Republican who has been divorced multiple times.  They don’t know the real Newt Gingrich, but they are seeing what he really believes today.

Does Newt Gingrich have a chance in 2012?  If he can find a way to win the GOP nomination in 2012, then he has a good chance to win!

    We don’t need Danite Knights in the Whitehouse.

    The fact is…Newt is absolutely right. He is not one of the far right wing conservative who are just as stupid as the people on the far left. He is a very intelligent common sense right leaning centrist. Because of this, he has an excellent chance of getting enough swing and crossover votes to get elected and would make an excellent president. He does, however, need better salesmanship, something the Republican Party has always been sadly lacking in.
    I’m amazed at the foolishness of conservative pundits that are either too stupid to realize or continuously ignore the fact that, like it or not, our society has taken on the burden of not allowing people to get sick and die in the streets. We insist on taking care of people no matter how foolish some of them may have been in bringing their dyer situations upon themselves. All of us, that means you and me, need to get into acceptance that we have been and will continue to foot this outrageous bill. This is something the vast majority of us, through our representatives, have agreed to over the years. Therefore, if we have to take care of you regardless…what’s wrong with everyone throwing at least a pittance into the pot to help pay for it. That means insurance mandates or a bond or a token something.
    Every time someone gets hurt or sick and can’t or won’t pay for their own medical care, (and then sue the provider for an honest mistake or for no reason at all), they just dump all that expense onto the rest of us through higher medical fees, taxes and insurance premiums, and it’s as simple as that. One way or another, it’s going to get paid for, and since only 48% of us actually pay taxes, that’s probably not the best solution.
    I’m all about freedom, and along with freedom comes responsibility. Some take the position that forcing them to buy health care or insurance violates their constitutional freedom. What the conservative pundits won’t bring up is that because you and me, (We) DO NOT HAVE THE FREEDOM TO NOT PAY medical bills for low income and irresponsible people, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE THE FREEDOM TO ESCAPING at least a part of THE BILL.
    It’s true, that Obama care constitutes a gigantic mess that fails to attack the core of the problem and makes it worse rather than better. Newt has the intelligence, insight and toughness to work with good people and come up with a non political, workable and economical solution.
    As for you irresponsible fools out there…I’m tired of paying your medical bills while my family goes without medical care; because we can’t afford the inflated costs; because of you!
