Is Gingrich Just as Electable as Romney?

Weekly Standard: "It's becoming increasingly hard to say whether Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney, the two leading Republican presidential candidates, would fare better against Barack Obama."

"Each of these two leading GOP candidates certainly has his strengths in an electoral vein. Romney consistently fares better than Gingrich among independents -- the block of voters who will likely decide the election -- while Gingrich's support among the Tea Party could help energizing the party's base, which in turn could influence independents (who are generally more apt to rally behind candidates who have the enthusiastic support of others -- a fact that seems to be particularly true for GOP candidates across the years)."
