Newsmax Still Not Enthused by Romney
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax seems to have given up its quest to slant its website to push Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign, but that doesn't mean it (aside from Ronald Kessler, that is) has gotten on board the Mitt Romney presumtive-nomination train.

Here are some headlines from the pasdt couple of days in the wake of Super Tuesday's primaries:

Romney Rebuked as Santorum Scores Victories

Romney Falters Again, Can't Connect with Conservatives

Schoen: Romney’s Invincibility Claim ‘Shaken — Perhaps Irrevocably’

Sabato: Romney ‘Averted Disaster’ on Super Tuesday

Rasmussen: Conservative Voters 'Absolutely' Reluctant To Accept Romney

Not exactly a vote of conference there, is it?

Newsmax did make a half-hearted attempt to shill for Gingrich, though, under the headline "Palin: I Voted for Newt, 'The Cheerful One'."

And Newsmax did edge itself toward resigning to the Republican electoral fate with an article headlined "Gillespie to Newsmax: Social Conservatives Eventually Will Embrace Romney." Again, not exactly a vote of confidence, but it's a sign that Newsmax is moving into the acceptance phase of its Gingrich grief process.

UPDATE: Newsmax's Gingrich infatuation may be over for good. A new article by Martin Gould and Ashley Martella carries the headline "Santorum to Newsmax: I'd Consider Gingrich for VP."
