I see Perry taking California.
Crazy? Maybe. But maybe not so much.
I think they've had their fill and know they're doomed if someone doesn't pull them out of their death spiral. And Perry will keep pushing the right buttons. He just made a big statement about a "moratorium" on regulations (one of his main tenants, which includes "fair and predictable tax and regulatory policy" -- as well as his aggressive (and successful) push against lawyers and lawsuits) which should play BIG in CA!!
I live in CA and know a lot of fed up obama voters, they are looking at Mitt or Perry. Because one of the reasons they dislike obama now is obamacare, I make sure to remind them of romneycare, and that mitt will be not much better than obama. Perry’s fiscal creds are going to be very influential for the indies. Most of the indies don’t care much about the social issues, they just want a good economy and a prez they personally like. Perry will meet those needs.
