The Big Questions: Can Newt Be the Nominee?

Gingrich BQ

In this week’s issue of TIME Magazine (available to subscribers here), Mark Halperin looks at what the Georgian must do to give himself a chance.

“Romney’s aides dismiss Gingrich’s long-term viability, but they might be underestimating the potency of his 30-year bond with the party’s grassroots….If he can be Good Newt (feisty, crisp, brainy) for the next 30 days, Gingrich will be Romney’s worst nightmare. That means a disciplined focus on policy and no petulant ranting about perceived slights or travails….Even with his surge in the polls, he is well behind Mitt Inc. in developing campaign infrastructure.”
