A majority of Republican voters (60 percent) want Newt Gingrich to drop out of the presidential primary race, according to a new CNN poll. In the same poll a majority of Republican voters (53 percent) also want the party's nominee to be decided through the primary system, not at the convention in August.
Here's how Gingrich's campaign is interpreting that data via its spokesman R. C. Hammond:
But Hammond noted the same poll found that 43% of Republican voters felt the party's nominee should be chosen at the party's convention, a figure he said showed deep dissatisfaction with Romney.
"It's an unprecedented number considering that at no time in the modern political era have we picked our nominee at the convention," he said.
