With the only recourse of calling it a “failed system”, Newt Gingrich failed to make the VA ballot. This was announced by the GOP early Saturday morning. Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Jon Huntsman will be off the ballot also seeing they failed amass the required amount of signatures. As it stands the only nominees to make it are Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

This could serve a significant blow to Gingrich as the Washington Post reports:

A poll released Wednesday showed Gingrich with a slight lead over Romney among Virginia Republicans in the race for president. The Quinnipiac University poll shows Gingrich at 30 percent and Romney at 25 percent among Republican voters.

The Virginia state election board requires candidates petitioning for inclusion in the primary to file 10,000 signatures from registered voters.This includes 400 from each of Virginia’s 11 congressional districts.
