Newt's Visit Unlikely to Boost Oklahoma Poll Numbers

Newt Gingrich brought his campaign to Tulsa today in an effort to shore up his failing presidential campaign. 

Once the GOP frontrunner in Oklahoma, Gingrich is fading fast while Rick ("No Sex") Santorum is riding high in the Sooner state.

Sooner Poll results reported Sunday in the Tulsa World show Santorum at 39 percent, Mitt Romney at 23 percent and Gingrich at 18 percent. Ron Paul came in fourth at only 8 percent, behind the catch-all category of "Don't know/refused." 

How the mighty have fallen. In mid-December, Gingrich was atop the Sooner Poll with 33 percent of the voters. Gingrich's numbers nationally are even worse. Gallup today has The Newtster at an underwhelming 13 percent. 

Let's face it, Sooner fans, Newt Gingrich is toast. He won't win the Oklahoma primary and he won't win the Republican nomination. He'll never be president of the United States.

Why? Maybe it's Newt's ethically challenged history in the U.S. House. Maybe it's his convoluted  marital history, which includes two ex-wives and a current wife more than two decades his junior.

Or maybe it's his never-ending font of silly ideas, including his scheme to establish a U.S. base on the moon. Brilliant!
