The Right Coalesces

Yeah, he comes with a lot of baggage.  And yeah, he will, as president, give us fits on occasion.  But he's the only person on center stage - including the empty suit who occupies the White House currently - who has proven his ability to solve problems and can get the USA back on track.

That's my take anyway.

It looks like Republicans are settling into that take too.

The latest numbers from Public Policy Polling:
Gingrich takes the lead

Newt Gingrich has taken the lead in PPP's national polling. He's at 28% to 25% for Herman Cain and 18% for Mitt Romney. The rest of the Republican field is increasingly looking like a bunch of also rans: Rick Perry is at 6%, Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul at 5%, Jon Huntsman at 3%, and Gary Johnson and Rick Santorum each at 1%.

Compared to a month ago Gingrich is up 13 points, while Cain has dropped by 5 points and Romney has gone down by 4.

We've a long way to go.  But this looks like a trend with staying power.
