Giuliani: Gingrich May Be Stronger Than Romney

Former New York Mayor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said Monday that GOP front-runner Newt Gingrich might be a stronger contender than Mitt Romney.

Speaking to CNN’s Piers Morgan, Giuliani said Gingrich has an appeal to a wide variety of voters, while Romney seems out of touch with average Americans.

"My gut tells me right now as I look at it that Gingrich might actually be the stronger candidate, because I think he can make a broader connection than Mitt Romney to those Reagan Democrats,” Giuliani said.

Story continues below video.

One of Gingrich's strengths is that "he's got a common touch, he's able to talk to people, he comes from a poor family, understands poverty from that point of view,” Giuliani continued.  “He doesn't come from the American elite. It's going to be hard to paint him that way. There are a lot of other ways you can paint him, but you can't paint him that way.”

Giuliani said Romney's campaign lacks something.

“Gov. Romney has almost a perfect record for a person to be running right now,” Giuliani said. “Experience in government, experience in business. Understands the economy. But there is something missing. You're absolutely right. There's some kind of personal connection that doesn't get made that the other candidates probably do a better job at.”
