Did Newt eat a piece of humble pie?

(CNN) - After confidently declaring earlier Thursday he would become the Republican nominee, Newt Gingrich toned down his hubris later that night, saying it was up to the voters to make that choice.

"The people decide, and in the end, they've got to make the decision, but certainly it's moving in the right direction," Gingrich said when pressed in a Fox News interview on whether he stood by his previous remarks about winning the nomination.
