Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House, who left in disgrace, should leave the republican race for the the nomination to run against President Obama in the upcoming election. Gingrich is splitting the vote and prolonging the process, with his presence in a race that is not going his way in any measure.
Some members of the public and political pundits believe, Gingrich is remaining in the race for dubious reasons. Currently, the delegate count stands at Mitt Romney, 563, Rick Santorum, 263, Newt Gingrich 135 and Ron Paul, 50. A candidate needs 1144 to win the nomination. Romney is the clear favorite, but Santorum would have a lot more votes than he currently does if Gingrich were not in the race.
