by 9%, per a survey of the oldest, whitest voters Rassmussen could find.

Throughout the GOP race, Romney has always benefited from the perception that he was the strongest general election candidate in the field. However, among Florida voters at the moment, that is no longer the case. Forty-two percent (42%) now believe Gingrich would be the strongest candidate against Obama, while 39% say the same of Romney.

He's a truly awful campaigner.

Hey, it could be worst than Newt. He may lose by a wider margin than Romney, but at least he'll fire up the base and benefit downticket R's.

I'd really like to talk to any of the 42% that think Newt is electable.

I didn't realize that many people in FL rode the short bus.

Ann Coulter made a great argument against Newt today—he is the least conservative of all the candidates and less electable than Romney. He's not even on the ballot in VA. She said SC voters just like to hear him claim he is conservative and call Obama a socialist without bothering to take 3 seconds to check his actual positions. She said the South is just reverting back to it's Democratic roots. If they were going to vote for a conservative, the most conservative would be Santorum. To sum it up she said with Gingrich you "throw out the baby and keep the bath water." LOL!

Voters are only voting for him based off debate performances. Most of his supporters are blissfully thinking of presidental debates with Obama without considering that the man is an absolute pig and has no shot at beating Obama in a general election.

Can't be completely true if he's leading in Florida and won SC—unless it was his folks that were behind the irregularities on counting those votes in SC.

Well, let's look at the bright side: If he loses to Obama ( and he may not if he debates better than him) then the increased wreckage of America will swell the ranks of the Campaign for Liberty hopefully resulting in a win.

Romney built a lead based on inevitability (people want to vote for a winner), superior financing/ad buys, and the perception that he was the best chance to win. Make enough tone deaf comments suggesting you won't connect with middle income voters, and the latter changes quickly.

Are you campaigning for Newt now?

Well, geez, it sure sounds like you'd prefer Gingrich since his favorite president was FDR precisely because he was very progressive even during good times. And because Gingrich favors tax increases and more public works make-work jobs on infrastructure as did FDR.

Neither. Honestly, the politician I've been most impressed with recently is Christie. I'm a huge proponent of reforming our prisons and drug policies, and he recently called for releasing some non-violent drug offenders (and is pro medical pot).

You conservatives are freaking nutzo right now..... it's going to take a strong moderate Republican to get anything accomplished in this climate.

I convinced myself about a year ago that Obama was going to win a second term, but I always had hope that something strange could happen to derail that.

But now with Gingrich's ascendency, that hope is gone. And it appears that Republican voters will never be smart enough to elect someone who can enact REAL change. I guess that's what you get for catering to the South.

I'm not against medical pot or releasing drug offenders. That's what Paul supports. That makes you a nut too. However, it's all you big govt crony capitalist

Democratic side: Jack Lew ( JP Morgan Chase), Rahm Emanuel ( Wall St), Peter Orszag ( Citigroup). Robert Wolf ( Swiss Bank USB)

The new chief of staff is Jack Lew. He used to work for the giant banking conglomerate Citigroup. His predecessor as chief of staff is Bill Daley, who used to work at the giant banking conglomerate JPMorgan Chase. Daley was maestro of the bank’s global lobbying and the chief liaison to the White House.

Bill Daley replaced Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who once worked for a Wall Street firm where he was paid a reported $18.5 million in less than three years.

The new chief of staff, Jack Lew, comes from Obama’s Office of Management and Budget, where he replaced Peter Orszag, who now works as vice chairman for global banking at the giant conglomerate Citigroup. Still following me?

It’s startling the number of high-ranking Obama officials who have spun through the revolving door between the White House and the sacred halls of investment banking.

But remember, it was Bush and Cheney’s cronies in big business who helped walk us right into the blast furnace of financial meltdown. Then they rushed to save the banks with taxpayer money.

But of course, Bush and Cheney aren’t the only ones to have a soft spot for financiers. Bankers seem to come and go pretty frequently at the White House. President Obama may call them "fat cats" and stir the rabble against them with populist rhetoric when it serves his purpose, but after the fiscal fiasco, he allowed the culprits to escape virtually scot-free. And when he’s here in New York, he dines with them frequently and eagerly accepts their big contributions.

Like his predecessors, Obama’s administration has also provided the banks with billions of low-cost dollars they used for high-yielding investments to make big profits.

It's a fact. The largest banks are actually bigger than they were when he took office. And earned more in the first two-and-a-half years of his term than they did during the entire eight years of the Bush administration.

And get this: President Obama’s new best friend, according to The New York Times, is Robert Wolf. They play golf, basketball, and they talk economics when Wolf is not raising money for the President’s re-election campaign. Now, just who is Robert Wolf? Well, he's top dog at the U.S. branch of the giant Swiss bank UBS, the very bank that helped rich Americans evade taxes. Here, Senator Carl Levin describes some of the tricks used by UBS:

I've always been self-employed except for part-time work at times. Just not right now.
In 2009 I left a part-time position because they wanted me full-time and I didn't want that.
So I wound up homeschooling for the last 2 years instead. I'll be working again when I'm ready.

I had a heated discussion with a local political hack of 30 years here in the D.C. area a little earlier this afternoon. He went on a 10 minute tirade for why Newt Gingrich sucks and he should never be elected or could be elected. Then I told him something that shut him the f*ck up in his tracks: "The reason Newt is doing so well is because people are so sick of career politicians like you telling us who to vote for, when to vote, and how to vote. Newt is no outsider but he has ideas. Not all his ideas will be enacted but at least he has ideas. All you other windbags do is to try and find a way to suck off the teet of government for as long as you can. That's why Romney is doing poorly, because the establishment is trying to shove him down all of our throats."

I thought him and I were going to come to blows. He told me earlier he was from Kansas and when I asked him if he was a Chiefs fan like me, he told me he left there a real long time ago and liked the Skins. F*cking real pompous asshole from the inner sanctum of DC scum....
