I was looking up the DrudgeReport.com the other day, and I saw poll results from the Republican presidential race blazened across the top of the site. Herman Cain and Mitt Romney led the way but Newt Gingrich was a solid third with about 13% of the vote.
Gingrich has performed well in the debates but I’ve never taken him seriously as a presidential candidate. Now I’m rethinking things.
If the sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain sink his candidacy, then only Newt Gingrich is left among the conservatives running for the Republican nomination. Rick Perry is not impressive. Michelle Bachmann has faded. Rick Santorum has little support.
I agree with Politico’s rankings in order or likelihood to win the Republican nomination — Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich.
