Here are the latest. Newt now has a huge lead in Iowa and South Carolina, and is within spitting distance in New Hampshire (the victory in Iowa would give him the big mo’ required actually to spit, it would seem). So nobody has voted yet, but the question of stopping Newt is really insistent now. He’s starting to get a lot of endorsements, the Tea Party has turned its heart his direction . . . This is nuts!
Meanwhile, generic Republican has opened up a significant lead over the particular president. But Newt, in my view, can’t win. And probably shouldn’t win.
