Gingrich Wowed at Iowa Forum

Newt Gingrich apparently impressed the audience at the Iowa forum held Saturday night. From the Des Moines Register:

 

[The Family Leader’s Bob] Vander Plaats was particularly complimentary of Newt Gingrich’s performance in the two-hour forum, which focused mostly on social issues and how religion shapes the candidates’ world views.

“He’s very good, he’s very articulate and he puts it in such a historical, constitutional, world-view context,” Vander Plaats said. “He’s a great teacher.”

Vander Plaats said Gingrich stood out in a focus group that moderator/pollster Frank Luntz conducted after the forum with Christian conservative women.

“Newt blew it out of the park in the focus group,” he said.
