We're gonna move on now to be a GOP presidential race.
And we showed earlier today at the latest polls which Fox News poll puts a Newt Gingrich actually at the top 23%.
Mitt Romney right behind at 22%.
Herman -- enough falling and as you can see others in the single digits.
And then the next poll though when you go to like ability has Newt Gingrich down in fourth place again in the single digits is so.
Chris -- they consider Newt Gingrich not very likable however say they would trust him to run the country.
Well we'll see I don't.
Think that Newt Gingrich's numbers are going to blast but will definitely see there's been so many Republicans.
Who put out it seems like it's basic physics where there's.
A big gaping hole where a conservative Republican candidate that rings with the Tea Party and the national defense and the social conservatives are and it's.
There's big gaping hole there and it's been sucking candidates and do it over and over again whether it's Rick Perry briefly.
Herman Cain Newt Gingrich.
But Newt Gingrich hasn't I don't think done very well like abilities since Ronald Reagan was was around the the he's and he doesn't have the the the doesn't have the facilities in Iowa set up to really when a caucus.
He probably won't resonate very well with the Christian conservatives is on his third marriage.
Eight -- is resonating with voters because he's he's got ideas he's really taken on kind of an uncle off fatherly tone in the debates and right now the debates having the biggest effect -- when it comes down to.
Numbers and people actually getting out and voting and coming to people's living rooms in the caucus and making a decision.
He probably will fall to below actually saying and makes a race much or -- -- -- yeah he is coming across now as at least one article put it as an elder statesman.
And he's mentioned that he has mellowed out his personality and that he's much calmer much more mature.
And can back up and look with the perspective on his age and wisdom.
And try to keep -- -- on the big picture are you know at first it it may look like people are gonna buy that but he's at the top -- -- -- right now.
-- I think that -- so wishful thinking I mean we can't forget that it was just the mere months ago that his campaign completely fell to samples so.
This is just more a matter of people not being happy with Mitt Romney and so there's no one else to go to now it's about recycling and candidates that have already failed.
I think that you know once he now is at the top of the -- he's going to start being scrutinized.
In ways that he hasn't because when his campaign fell apart all he could do was really.
Go to the debates he he wasn't doing any organizing on the ground as a had just said he had no operation so.
All we could do was prepare for the debates and he decided he wasn't pointed you know attack from the US and attack the folks on the stage with him.
But now that he's at the top of the heat the scrutiny is coming we're seeing what's happening with his -- -- one point three million dollars that he proceed from Fannie and Freddie and we have already seen the same mistakes made in these past few days as we did at the beginning of his campaign where.
He comes out and he said he makes a really bold statement and then he -- the correct itself and then he corrects himself again.
So I think it's just a matter of time before folks say well we're gonna pass on gamer its like they passed on bock man play -- pass on -- And the only thing I would get is -- Tim Pawlenty.
If he's just I don't know -- it.
Yeah eventually risen to the top he got out much to -- all right that's going to be the last word for now.
