Newt is still leading in the national polls http://www.realclearpolitics.com/ep.../republican_presidential_nomination-1452.html I think his best line so far has been: Do you want to vote for the guy, who lost to the guy, who lost to Obama? I'm not sure of the source but heard a great quote about Newt the other day. And I think this plays into his popularity. Newt does have new ideas, Romney doesn't; at least he doesn't talk about them. But in regards to Newt's ideas, the quote was: Newt has about 100 ideas a day. 95 of them are great. The other 5 would destroy the world!
