View Full Version : Newt Gingrich The comeback kid: Gingrich beating Romney in Iowa poll

11-08-2011, 08:12 AM
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has jumped into second place in Iowa, ahead of Mitt Romney, according to a poll released Monday.

An automated poll conducted by We Ask America, found that 18 percent of likely caucus goers would vote for Gingrich if the caucuses were held today. Cain is still in first place with 22 percent, despite weathering a week of sexual harassment allegations. Gingrich edges out Mitt Romney, who is in third at 15 percent.

Gingrich has witnessed large gains since his numbers dropped and his staff deserted over the summer.

The survey was taken on Sunday, after a full week of the sexual harassment charges against Cain being front and center in the news, yet voters donít appear to be withdrawing support, for now at least.

Opinion section of the Des Moines Register has an article on Gingrich surging. "Take a chance on me" referencing his love for ABBA.
