Newt Gingrich is simply unelectable as president -- But do the Republican right care?

Newt Gingrich

Newt Gingrich is now leading the national poll of Republican presidential contenders according to Quinnipiac.

And the Republican right seems intent on political suicide.

That's the only way to read that poll, given that all the resistance to Romney is coming from the right who don't like him.

Yet the same poll showed that Gingrich trails Romney by 38 per cent to 22 per cent among Republicans when asked who has the better chance of defeating President Obama.

It is clear to anyone with a modicum of sense that Gingrich is a deeply flawed candidate.

The three wives, deserting one as she was in hospital with cancer, his ties to Freddie Mac and his downright obnoxious personality will all count heavily against him.

Then there is his latest wife Callista, a control freak, who will soon wear thin on the voters.

These are all red warning tags for Republicans.

Somehow many of them don't seem to care.

They ran candidates like this in the last election and threw away senate seats in Delaware and Nevada.

Could they now be ready to do it again?

The Obama folk must be praying its Gingrich and chanting 'Newt Newt Newt' in their sleep.

They know he is simply unelectable.

And so do most Republicans.

Or do they?
