Polls: Gingrich especially popular among oldsters

An analysis of four new national polls shows that Newt Gingrich’s surge in popularity among Republicans has been greatest among those who are 65 or older.

Newt’s also running strong among Tea Party folks, a curious phenomenon considering his status as a Washington insider and a well-paid lobbyist for special interests. In many ways, he represents exactly what the Tea Party movement is supposed to find anathema.

But Gingrich still trails Mitt Romney in terms of likability and on the question of which candidate is more likely to defeat Barack Obama next year.

The story is HERE.



  1. Now that Bachmann, Perry and Cain have been voted off the island the tea party has decided to reach into their bag of political hacks to resurrect Mr. Family Values as the best candidate to challenge Mittens. Ringling brothers couldn’t match this performance.

  2. Newt’s popularity must be from name recognition because it certainly can’t be because he is talking sense.
