...a pair of polls...ought to be scaring the pants off of Romneys camp.
A PPP Michigan poll shows Santorum leading...by a 39-24 percent margin. The ARG poll also has him ahead, though by a smaller 33-27 percent differential.
...if any in his campaign were inclined to dismiss Santorums surge...this poll is proof they are dead wrong...a loss in Michigan would be fatal to [Romney's] presidential hopes...the air would go out of his inevitability balloon and Santorum would, despite his threadbare national campaign, assume the unlikely role of frontrunner.
...a defeat [in Michigan] would be considered a personal repudiation of [Romney's] candidacy in a state that has long been assumed to be in his pocket. Were that to happen, his campaign would fall apart like a house of cards.
...the Pennsylvanians decision to avoid getting into the middle of the Gingrich-Romney mud-wrestling match helped position him as the good guy in the race. So did the sympathy that arose for Santorum after his daughters illness....
...Romney cannot compete with Santorum in pleasing [social conservatives and evangelicals]...his flip-flops on such issues are a distinct liability. An election in which GOP voters are thinking about abortion, gay marriage and even contraception insurance coverage is one in which Romney is bound to lose.
...Santorums momentum can vanish as quickly as it gathered steam. Attacks on his record in the Senate may decrease his popularity. Gingrich could mount a comeback (as unlikely as that may seem, hes risen from the dead twice already). And Romney could shake off his lethargy, quit making gaffes and blatantly insincere statements that do more to alienate conservatives than engage them such as his claim to have been a severely conservative governor of Massachusetts.
...if Romney doesnt get his act together in Michigan, hes in bigger trouble than he realizes.

LOL Hark was what my mother always said, she never said shut up...I learned hark very young....I remember George”I was brainwashed” Romney, been a life long resident of Michigan and that remark make him look foolish...Romney is not got a wrap because of his father...lots of people were not even around when George was governor.
Romney shouldn’t run scared. He should just stop running entirely.
I like it: HARK!
