Pollster: Potential Cain Downfall Could Help…Newt?
A new round of Republican primary and caucus polling from Public Policy Polling (D) — conducted almost entirely before the recent controversy involving past allegations against Herman Cain of sexual harassment — show Cain leading among Republicans in North Carolina and Maine. But perhaps more importantly, PPP’s analysis suggests that in the event of any potential Cain collapse, the likeliest beneficiary would be…Newt Gingrich.
Gingrich’s campaign has been plagued by fundraising and personnel problems, plus the candidate’s own gaffes and scrutiny of his personal life. But then again, the field has indeed gone through a cycle of conservative Tea Party voters looking for an alternative to Mitt Romney, only for problems to emerge with each one that comes along. (See Bachmann, M. and Perry, R. etc.)
I've often wondered why Newt hasn't been able to get traction in the primaries.
