So…can Newt Gingrich Beat Obama in 2012? With Gingrich surging in the polls for the second time in the GOP primaries, many conservatives and moderates are asking themselves this same question. Many independents and liberal moderates are voting for anyone but Obama, and whoever wins the nomination for the GOP has the best chance to get Obama out of office.
Can Newt Gingrich beat Obama? If he is going to beat him, he needs to win the GOP nomination first. The latest polling data shows that Gingrich has a strong chance to win. Romney is picking up most of the moderate vote in the primaries, and the conservatives are split between Santorum and Gingrich. Paul is getting the independent vote, but Paul hasn’t shown any ability to significantly increase his popularity in the race. Santorum will eventually drop out of the race, and that means most of his support will go to Gingrich. Even with Santorum still in the race, Gingrich won the Republican primary by a healthy margin in South Carolina, so the prospect of Santorum dropping out only makes his chances look better.
The only way Gingrich loses the nomination is because of the baggage from his past. It is in the best interest of the Republicans for all of the skeletons to come out of Newt’s closet now! We need Gingrich to be fully vetted so that his campaign cannot be derailed when he is running against Obama this year.
With all of that said, I believe Newt can win the nomination. Can Newt Gingrich beat Obama? If Obama’s approval ratings remain low, I believe Newt has a great chance to beat him. People are fed up with Obama. They are broke and need work. Obama is not encouraging new jobs through the private sector. His union supporters wanted the Keystone XL pipeline, but the Obama administration rejected the proposal. He is simply not making too many friends among independents that are key to his reelection campaign, and that means Gingrich has a good chance to win should he get the nomination.
Newt can win against Obama because he is a fighter. He has shown this in the debates the last few weeks. When his 2nd ex-wife Marianne accused Newt of wanting a 2nd marriage, Newt didn’t flinch. When he was asked about it at the beginning of the debate, he responded strongly that the allegations aren’t true and reprimanded the media for starting a debate with a personal question about his past. Even if he is confronted with other issues in the future, he showed that he can handle criticism well.
Gingrich has shown time and time again that he is the best candidate to debate against Obama in the general elections. He always does well in the debates, and his poll numbers always seem to rise after every GOP debate. He is not seen as a nice guy like Romney, and that could help him in working with foreign countries over security issues.
Gingrich has what it takes to become the next President of the United States. Can Newt Gingrich beat Obama in 2012? Yes he can!
