Newtmentum

Looks like Newtmentum is underway: In a new McClatchy poll of Republicans, Newt Gingrich has overtaken Herman Cain to take second place behind Romney. The results look like this: 

-Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, 23 percent;

-Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, 19 percent;

-Cain, the former restaurant executive, 17 percent;

-Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, 10 percent;

-Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, 8 percent;

-Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, 5 percent;

-Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, 1 percent;

-Former Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah, 1 percent;

-Undecided, 17 percent.

I wonder what Tim Pawlenty thinks when he sees poll results like these.
