Remember back during the GOP debate season when Newt Gingrich would describe Barack Obama as the "food stamp President" as often as possible? Critics accurately described the phrase as a so-called dog whistle designed to appeal to bigoted. A new polls suggests the bigots were listening.
Unless every poll is wrong, today Newt Gingrich is going to win Georgia . . . and nothing else.
While Rick Santorum will never have Newt Gingrich's way with words - I'm sorry, I meant Rick Santorum will literally fundamentally never have Newt Gingrich's transformational way with words - it does look as if Santorum has once again replaced Newt as the GOP's anti-Mitt of the moment.
As polls predicted for nearly a week, Newt Gingrich decisively lost the Florida GOP primary last night to Mitt Romney. Exit polls showed TV ads and debates were a big deal to voters. As anyone who watched the two Florida debates knows, Newt failed to shine in either. As for the battle of the ads, Romney massively outspent Newt in Florida.
UPDATE 1:55 P.M.: I wasn't the only person who thought Newt was neutered by the silent debate audience. Newt told Fox this morning he will not allow "the media" to silence audiences during future debates. "The media doesn’t control free speech," Newt said. "People ought to be allowed to applaud if they want to."
As anyone who is acquainted with Newt Gingrich's personal life knows, loving him can be dangerous.
