Newt Gingrich Thinks He’s Going to Lose In Iowa
Matt | On 02, Jan 2012
Newt Gingrich is facing the music just ahead of the first electoral showdown of the Election 2012 season.
The former Speaker of the House commented on Monday morning about the impending butt-whipping he thinks he will take in the Iowa GOP caucuses tomorrow.
“No. I don’t think I’m going to win. If you look at the numbers, I think that volume of negativity has done enough damage,” Gingrich said to reporters in the state.
Gingrich blames a whole lot of negative ads geared to him from the other candidates. Ever since he took frontrunner status when Herman Cain dropped out of the race, Newt has been the primary target for election shade from other candidates.
That’s the way political campaigns work. Whomever is the top dog, like President Obama for instance, is going to take the bulk of the heat.
Gingrich also brought his expectations down to Earth when he said that being president is not the primary goal in his world. He says that his family comes first and that the presidency is a “duty” rather than a “pleasure.” (Way to save face, Newt!)
“This is exciting, it’s interesting, it’s fascinating but it’s not at the center of my being.”
We at Prune Juice Media will happily report any electoral loss that Gingrich suffers on Tuesday in Iowa. Stay tuned!
