For the last few days, there has been a lot of speculation that Sarah Palin could be throwing her hat into the ring for the 2012 presidency. But the real threat could be coming from Newt Gingrich. Gingrich recently said that he was serious about running for the presidency.

“I’ve never been this serious,” Gingrich told the AP.

Gingrich hasn’t made a formal decision, but he plans to at the beginning of next year. The New York Daily News reports that Gingrich will be helping Republicans win seats during the midterm elections, but come February, he will decide if he is going to run for President.
“I think he (Barack Obama) will replace Jimmy Carter as the worst president of modern times,” Gingrich said. “He is a disaster.”
Republican opposition is going to be at its strongest in 2012. But I think that the most likely candidate is Sarah Palin, although the most probably is Mitt Romney.
The New York Daily News reports that a recent poll in Iowa shows that 62% of Republicans in Iowa were likely to vote for Romney, while 58% favored Palin.
