Public Policy Polling is just one of the firms documenting Newtmentum, but Jed Lewison takes their information today and shows us the trends.
Jed also shares this thought, which sounds very similar to something I said a few days ago about Cain/Gingrich being the next "not-Romney."
So the big question is whether nor not we're about to see a scenario where there are two Not Romneys atop the field.
One other troubling item if you loath Newt Gingrich as much as I do is that CNN's poll released today also shows him holding the highest net favorable rating among Republicans - by a long shot.
Folks who so casually dismissed Gingrich fail to recognize the depths to which both he and the Republican base have fallen into the insanity.
Update: A TPM reader explains (in "Newt-speak" no less) that this particular not-Romney will be very different from the others.
It strikes me that Newt’s rise in the polls is, to borrow a Newtism, fundamentally, unlike those experienced at other times during this Presidential nomination process. Newt Gingrich is decidedly not like Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Herman Cain. Sure, he’s got these enormous flaws in his personal life that may very well render him just as or nearly as unelectable as some of these other GOP trend candidates, but I would argue that Newt is the only candidate positioned to mount any kind of challenge to Mitt Romney.
I concur. From a diagnostic perspective, sociopaths are very different from your garden variety nut-case.
