    Does Newt still have a shot?

    Well it looks like Newt will be losing heavily in Florida , latest polls have him back down by double digits. Does anyone think he will Drop out after this week, or will he continue and try to make it through Super Tuesday?.

    Personally I hope he stays in a bit longer and perhaps puts up another comeback. All this in fighting is helping the Liberal Cause , well that and the fact that the economy is getting better.

    What do you think.. Does Newt still have a shot at the nomination?

    It depends.

    We can count on the republicans doing the DUMBEST possible thing. So the real question is, who is the bigger disaster in waiting....Romney or Newt. If in fact, it turns out that News would be a bigger disaster than Romney, then not only does he have a shot, his nomination is a sure thing.

    The more Newt and Romney slug each other, the better Ron Paul looks. I hope they fight for months. If Ron Paul is out before PA, I won't be voting. If he doesn't run as a 3rd party candidate in the general election, likewise, I will not be voting.

    Picking between Romney, Santorum, Newt, or Obama is choosing the lesser of 4 evils (if there is a "lesser"...they all scare me). I refuse to vote for evil. Maybe if I'm really motivated, I'll show up and write Ron Paul in.

    The dumbest possible thing is not necessarily nominating the biggest idiot. Like 2008, I suspect the republicans will nominate the person they think will win because of support by "moderates". Little does the republican party know, "Moderate" is just a word for people who have the critical thinking skills of a fruit-fly. They are the kind of people who vote for a person because "they would like to have a beer with them" or "they looked good kissing a baby". People like this tend to always vote democrat because the democrat platform tends to be a little more touchy feely. So at the end of the day the true conservatives don't vote for the republican and neither do the "moderates". You are left with the 30ish% of the people who vote republican no matter what plus 10-15% who caved and voted for the lesser of two evils.

    This is why Obama will win short of him doing something incredibly silly; such as making enough liberals mad that they don't vote.

    In the off chance you do nominate Newt, you basically give energy to a democrat base which is otherwise a little disappointed with their savior. So again, game over.
