WASHINGTON (KXAN/AP) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he's more inclined to run for president in 2012 than not to make a bid.

Gingrich says he probably won't make a decision until late February or early March. But he says that talking to friends and thinking about such an undertaking have made him more inclined to believe that "it's doable."

He tells "Fox News Sunday" that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is probably the front-runner for the Republican nomination, in terms of campaign structure. And Gingrich says former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is probably the most popular of the likely GOP candidates.

As for where he stands in a potentially crowded field, Gingrich says he's competitive and somewhere in the bunch.

Gingrich spoke at a Tea Party rally in Austin in April.?
