Newt at 40 percent in newest WSJ/NBC poll

From the WSJ:

Republican voters now heavily favor Newt Gingrich over Mitt Romney as the party's nominee, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey, but the poll also found deep unease with Mr. Gingrich among independents and swing voters who normally decide presidential elections.

With less than three weeks before the first votes are cast in Iowa, Republicans give the former House speaker the most commanding lead of any candidate this year: He has 40% support among likely GOP voters, compared with 23% for Mr. Romney. All of the other Republican candidates fell short of 10% support in the poll. . . .

Independents want a chance in leadership, but not a radical one. All polls show that Romney, in a general election poll, would be the closest to defeat Obama.

Going for the most conservative will turn off that vote and Obama will most likely win.

I find it difficult to choose any potential Republican candidate simply because of the filter that is the media.
