when a candidate tells the truth or makes sense. The extremist Republican base that controls their primaries seem to especially favor any candidate who has been shown to be a scoundrel the worse the behavior, the better they like the candidate. Dont forget, after the allegations of sexual harassment, Cains numbers soared and he collected a huge amount in donations specifically because of the charges.

The fact that Pelosi is the one who revealed his ethics violations will automatically make them side with Gingrich, because for too many people on both sidesbut especially for right-wingersthis is just a sports contest, and they will defend their team against the rival team, no matter what.

Look for his numbers to go up and for him to collect more money in small donations from the base.
