Newt may be done

I'm surprised they are not skipping right to Sanatorium but this is not that surprising:

But if Perry is not ready, I have to say I may have to seriously reconsider saying I’d never, ever, never vote for Jon Huntsman. He is more consistently conservative than either Newt or Romney, more pro-life than either, and a far more competent executive than either. He and Perry also are very real and sincere family men. Jon Huntsman clearly adores his family and I have concluded, despite my own misgivings about him, that he would govern more consistently to the right of Mitt Romney than even his campaign team would have us believe.

So says the head of RedState. That's a canary in the coal mine for Newt.

same with smerconish

michael smerconish has a regional radio show in the midatlantic area (not sure where else) and he has been talking up huntsman lately too. I think they are going to push him again. Frankly it doesn't matter in fact the more that people bring more traffic into the mix the more that Ron's 19 or 20 or 21% becomes a larger number. Think about it, Newt loses supporters to Huntsman but not many and some go to romney or even santorum. Well they get a little worthless bump and newt drops. could work out nicely. BUT it wouldn't show the electorate that RP is a clear frontrunner either....

I do hope we have some huntsman stuff in our back pocket just in case.

That's a canary in the coal mine for Newt.

Redstate is a party machine talking point information center.

The word is that Newt has

The word is that Newt has almost the worst ground game despite his poll numbers. His allegience with Trump might turn off the GOP insiders more and funnel support elsewhere. The next few weeks will be very interesting. Go Paul 2012!

Why is Newt "done"-?


The polls all have him way ahead, and the Media has been polishing-up his image and trying their hardest to make this serially corrupt, craven, and hypocritical, business-as-usual (fraudulent), chronic liar seem attractive to people.

I wish he were "done", but he is the #1 threat out there right now.


the source in this particular case is RedState.

You do know about RedState and Ron Paul, right? I mean I know about the MSM and Ron Paul, but, we're talking RedState in particular.

RON FREAKIN PAUL!!!!!!!

HELLO?!???? IS THERE ANYBODY IN THERE?!???? How do you freaking skip over RON EFFING PAUL?!???? How do you go from Newt to JON HUNTSMAN?!??? These people are going to make my head explode!!!!

Let them tout Huntsman

Many conservatives will never vote for him - they'll default to Ron Paul. And should Huntsman actually win the nomination, well of all the establishment candidates he does seem to be the least of the evils though maybe that's just because he hasn't gotten as much exposure yet.

Sanatorium...I like that one

I'd been calling him Satantorum.
