It had to happen, I guess, but I'm still sorry that closer examination of Newt Gingrich's record has put his polling numbers in sharp decline. This solidifies things, at least in New Hampshire, for Mitt Romney. Doesn't mean he's any more likable. Is it possible Jon Huntsman could get his day in the sun yet?
ALSO: FORECASTING IOWA. Weatherman Mike Huckabee says bad weather could propel Ron Paul to victory in Iowa. Good weather is good for Romney, Huckster says. This, I guess, is a measure of the perceived commitment of their supporters.
