The IMDB link that starts off post #1?
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

Each of these links verify the inclusion of films listed in the OP and appear to verify that the names are indeed for the same person. Took just a few seconds to look up.

And one which isn't actually listed in the original post, but should be:

Tender Mercies - Chris Newman (Sound Mixer)

All visually confirmed from either the film's opening or closing credits by myself... just now...

Just did a full audit for Tender Mercies changing the incorrectly credited Christopher Newman to the correct credit (posting that to act as a bump for this thread as we're only a couple of verified credits away from determining Chris Newman as the common name and then I can properly link them in my local).

We have still 23 unconfirmed titles. As unlikely as it is, "Christopher Newman" could still win 

Anyone?

No need to wait. There's always common name for everyone at literally any given second. Right now, the common name for Mr. Newman is Chris Newman, as supported by both the CLT numbers taken on face value (66 vs. 51 titles) and the findings up until this moment in this thread. Of course, theoretically, the situation can change, but that is true for every name. Again: everyone in the database has a common name at any given moment. For this guy, at this moment, it's Chris Newman.

You're absolutely correct of course and I agree, my only thought(s) are 1) Not everyone will see it that way and possibly vote no because they believe we should wait until it's "officially" confirmed (even though the CLT results confirm it already if we were to just simply go by those) and 2) I don't want to have to change them if we come to a different conclusion in a week's time!  So chalk it up to a bit of laziness and fear on my part!

And with that...Chris Newman is our winner!  The most Christopher can get is 26, so Chris Newman is the common name.  But please keep submitting them if you find them to fill out the list.

One final credit I'm able to confirm (which only pushes the current common name ahead):

A Chorus Line - Chris Newman (Sound Mixer)

IMDB got this one wrong.

Going to start submitting some changes from my local in the next couple of days, help out the CLT a little bit.
