One difference between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney is that Mitt’s stand on issues changes whenever convenient whereas Newt holds conflicting opinions simultaneously, for a price. Mitt doesn’t have a strong core but he does seem sincere as he swings in the breeze. On the other hand, Newt has a very strong core but it’s all about him and, like a bad apple, his core is rotten.
The only thing stable within the Republican electorate is the 22% that support Mitt Romney. Given the fickle nature of the other 78%, Newt’s time on top will be short. If the party eventually congeals around Romney, enthusiasm may be hard to muster.
