    They may as well stick a fork in Cain now. Who will benefit(who will get his votes). Prolly mostly Newt. Then Paul and finally a small bit for Perry. Who will be hurt by this (besides Cain)? Probably Romney will have the most to lose because the "not Romney" pool will be narrowed.

    Pretty much.

    Newt is looking incredibly strong now.

    I take back what I said either in this thread or a different one.

    Newt is no longer running for publicity/book sales; he could legitimately win this thing.

    I was meaning to write a post about this over the last day or two, but never got around to it.

    Then this whole Herman Cain 13-yr affair thing broke, and now he's considering dropping out.

    Newt is a perfect blend between pragmatic, moderate sensibilities and nutty right-winger.

    He'll be able to excite the Republican base, but he could also get a lot of Independents.

    He's a smart, tough cookie, too; he could shred Obama in the debates.

    I could see a Gingrich-Romney or Gingrich-Ryan ticket.

    Newt could do well. But, he has a lot of positions and statement from his past that would piss off conservatives. He only rose because republicans tend to have a short memory. The media and the other candidates have plenty ammo to use on him.

    If he does make it through. I think a Newt-Cain ticket is still possible. They have supported each other throughout the campaign and Newt could be making a deal with Herman right now to drop out and support him.

    What's with all of the stupid people running for president?
    Bachmann, Cain, Perry.
    I haven't heard anything from any of them that indicates that they have any clue of the issues.
    They would crash the economy.
    All of them.
    And then blame the Democrats.
    The Democrats are spineless.
    But that's another story for another day.

    Romney isn't quite as stupid as some of the others but he is a terrible flip-flopper. He says the things that he thinks his audience wants to hear. So his positions change constantly. I have no idea of where he stands on anything.

    That's just it. Who's going to brave wintry nights in Iowa to caucus for two candidates they don't believe in???

    Paul is second in Iowa and way ahead of Newt in the ground game. Paul has released his first attack ad to place him not as the ideal anti-Romney, but as the anti-newt which I think suits him much better since they are both long-term politicians, but followed markedly different paths.

    A bump from Iowa should enable Paul to leap Newt again in NH to take second. It would be very hard to take Mitt in NH given that there are so many Massholes in NH.

    But, 1st and 2nd should give him a boost in media attention and he should become a contender that can't be ignored. But, then they've ignored him before so who knows.

    It could be a long hard fight and we might even end up with a brokered convention.

    Probably not...but neither is Newt. He was quick to rise and will be quick to fall, just like Cain and Perry before him. The only candidate who's stably held his position is Romney. Not that I'm necessarily a big fan of Romney, but he's got everything going for him. He's the least offensive to moderates, knows how to play the political game, is an excellent communicator, and unlike both Newt and Paul, isn't too old. (Because that does affect people's decisions)
    You lose.
