Romny-Mentum?

Posted by Sal on February 3, 2008

A week ago I was dejected that McCain was going to be the nominee of the Republican Party.  While I do have concerns over Romney, McCain has had the habit over the past 8 years of giving the finger to conservatives.  While Romney may be a gamble, I’d prefer a gamble to someone who has consistently gone out of his way to distance himself from conservatives. 

I still think that McCain is the probable nominee of our party.  But in what may be a glimmer of hope, Rasmussen has released a poll on California which has Romney and McCain tied;  this is after a similar poll several days ago showing McCain with a 4-point lead.  A similar poll by Zogby/CNN/USA-Today poll, which traditionally over-estimates McCain’s support, shows Romney with a 3-point lead in CA.  California probably represents Romney’s last stand.  If he can win there and Massachusetts, pick up some caucus states, he could remain competitive beyond Super Tuesday and possible get enough momentum to upset McCain.  If he loses CA, however, he is most likely finished.  California is a closed primary with a rather conservative Republican electorate, so he does have a shot.

I for one will be casting my vote for Romney on Tuesday, but for now, enough politics and time for the Super Bowl.
