Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has surged to the largest national lead held by any candidate so far in the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Gingrich on top with 38% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is a distant second at 17%. No other candidate reaches double-digits.

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted on November 30, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Jon Stewart Rips GOP, Fox News Reaction To Gaddafi's Death: 'WTF Is Wrong With You People?' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" writers worked quickly Thursday to put together a show around the death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi. As with most major events, the media's reaction was a prime target for Stewart's mockery, but he also had some strong words for Republican senators who failed to give credit where credit is due.

Stewart kicked off the show with a lighthearted look at the 24-hour news networks' reports, most of which made Gaddafi sound like the most interesting man in the world, as well as Hillary Clinton's "Wow" moment and the Libyan peoples' joyous riots in the streets. But by the time he got to what Fox News and former U.S. ambassador John Bolton had to say, you could tell Stewart had a bone to pick with conservatives:

"Is there no republican who can be gracious and statesmanlike like in this situation? We removed a dictator in six months, losing no American soldiers, spending, like, a billion dollars rather than a trillion dollars, and engendering what appears to be good will in a people who now have a prideful story of their own independence to tell (not to mention oil, they have oil). Anybody want to give credit?"
