DES MOINES — Propelled by his debate performances and the demise of Herman Cain’s candidacy, former House speaker Newt Gingrich sits atop the Republican presidential field in Iowa with a clear lead over his closest competitors, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Ok first off I am not in the US, so well it doesn't really affect me. But I want to know how someone like him is the front-runner.

But more than that the main reason for this post is that I found something interesting in the poll.

Link to Poll

About halfway down the page you find the numbers about honesty.
8% to 10% more people find Ron Paul honest then Gengrich. Ron Paul has highest numbers for honesty. So if the poll is to be believed that means that people would rather choose a dishonest leader rather than a honest leader? If so it is not hard to see why the condition of US (and the world) is in the state that it is in.

And oh yeah, want a laugh? read the comments in the article.

It is pretty easy to figure out Republicans dont want Obama voted out of office, he has done EVERYTHING ASKED OF HIM. He isnt representing any reallity of American Thinking.

Newt, a bigamist, adultrist, sladderist, lier, at top of polls-get real.
This man never supported anything Prez.Clinton Supported and now MSM claiming he started everything Prez. Clinton accomplished.

Please all this vomiting is starting to hurt my throat!

These polls are lies.

I have not seen any Newt supporters!
Where are these magical invisible people?


All I see is Ron Paul.

I am growing tired of these games. I want free and fair elections!

It doesn't matter what they think now, it was insane to have Bachmann, Perry, and Cain in the leads as well. There were many reasons not to vote for them yet people followed the establishment voter base. Pretty much anybody that the media is talking about, the people will like. They don't look at the facts, they just do what they're told to.

Also take into consideration the fact that when they say they're polling likely republican caucus goers, its just the same establishment republicans thats been in the party for years and years. Newly registered republicans rarely ever get polled, not to mention those without landlines will ever get to voice their sentiments.

All we need to know is that Ron is doing well and will continue to do well as long as the support base is doing their part in spreading the message.

Remember to:
phone bank
stay positive
& spread the word

It's all just the MSM's usual bull *snip*... The local news thinks it's only down to Romney and Gingrich because of Cain dropping out. Personally none of the above have had anything to show but that, a show.

Just because some fat cat douche bag with a terrible hair piece is 'hosting a debate' doesn't mean he has any sway with Americans that know what's going on.

Romney is a f-word lunatic... Gingrich is, well... he's a (insert ANY explicative) and is just like Obama, a do-er for the 1%.

Ron Paul is the ONLY person i have watched that always has something to say, always means what he says, and even takes the creatively deconstructive questions and turns them into a "STFU, I'll still answer the question the way you didn't want me to and still come out on top making you look like a dumb ass for asking..."

I guess the MSM, TPTB, whomever, hasn't learned that ignoring the 'problem' won't make it go away... a local Utah moron, excuse me, mormon news station has MITT ROMNEY at a 68% guess that he will win the GOP. R Paul is in second.

For every single one of you stupid conservative aholes who sits there and complains about corruption:

Newt Gingrich (R-GA), the Speaker of the House, was accused of financial improprieties leading to House reprimand and $300,000 in sanctions [126] leading to his resignation (1997)[127]

or for everyone of you conservative morons who are hypocrites when it suits you it's ok to do this as long as "it's for your country"

and just to be fair about it so you don't confuse me for an Obama supporter

and before you morons who support Obama think I am sticking up for him

Obama is in fact selling guns to drug lords

Yeah, save your bullsiht about the President not knowing about it because that's worse them him coming clean

Oh and don't forget

Yeah, he didn't know about this either, and if that is his answer he should be kicked out of office that second for not having control of his own Government.

I have one question to ask you people who think that Dems or Repubs are any different? Your candidate is the best because he is looking out for you???

Think so Libs? Think they "want to share the socialist wealth like you" ??

Look at who the top 6 people who made money of insider trading when the market crashed in 08 were instead of doing something to prevent it and protect you....yeah.....then look who else is on the list at 67

Now getting back to my question for you all ..............are you all really this fing stupid?

I really just can't see Newt getting it, you know. I mean, political platforms and support aside, it just doesn't seem "right."

I think I may have that strange feeling because he had his 5 minutes and faded away and then came back. It's like he's a relic of politics past. Seems like they would want something more "fresh."
