If he keeps going, it's going to be a long slog, with many Republicans viewing him as a spoiler intent on damaging the party's likely nominee. Many other Republicans though, will look forward to casting an anti-Romney vote that can make a difference. Most won't be voting for Newt, they'll be voting against Romney.
Yeah, the difference they'll make is giving Obama another four years.
