Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he thinks the real story out of Iowa is that three-fourths of the state Republican caucus-goers "repudiated Mitt Romney."

Commenting today on Romney's mere eight-vote victory over former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in the Iowa caucuses Tuesday, Gingrich said: "I think what is really striking about last night is that three out of four Republicans repudiated Mitt Romney. How can you take seriously somebody after that kind of campaign?"

Gingrich, who finished fourth in the caucuses, said during an MSNBC interview from New Hampshire this morning that "we got diverted" by Romney's negative advertisements. He added that he has to figure out a better way to run in such an environment.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Romney hasn't been truthful about his record, Gingrich said, again criticizing negative ads that an independent group that backs Romney ran against him.

Also during the MSNBC interview, Gingrich repeated his congratulations to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum on his near-miss loss to Romney in Iowa.
