Snooki is becoming quite the darling of the Republican party.

Not only is the pregnant Jersey Shore star already buddies with Sen. John McCain, but now she can count conservative powerhouse Newt Gingrich as a new friend.

"Obviously I don't know s--t about politics, but I think he's just such a cute little man," Snooki says for the former Speaker of the House.

Snookers, 24, and Gingrich, 69, met last night when they both appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Gingrich even gave the mom-to-be a stuffed elephant and joked (we think he was joking) that he'd consider making an appearance on Snooki and JWoww.

"I had to Google him," Snooki said. "But he's so cute and nice. I don't know why everyone hates him so much."

But then she added, "I guess his views? I don't know any of his views, but he was nice."

Gingrich's wife Callista posted a photo of them on Instagram. Snooki promised to send them some of her branded swag, like pairs of slippers and self-named fragrance.

Even with all the GOP lovin', Snooki doesn't know who she'll support in the presidential race. "I'm an independent," she said. "I have to look into it more."

Snooki's dad, Andy Polizzi, cracked, "She's going to tweet, 'Everyone, write in Snooki!'"
