Mittens Going Down in Flames?

by

New Hampshire primaryThe latest polling from New Hampshire shows Romney dropping behind McCain. Can Mitt Romney survive a one-two punch when he was literally banking on winning both Iowa and New Hampshire?

The most startling poll comes from ARG:

John McCain 35% (30%)
Mitt Romney 25% (30%)
Mike Huckabee 12% (11%)
Ron Paul 9% (7%)
Rudy Giuliani 8% (9%)
Fred Thompson 1% (3%)
Duncan Hunter 1% (1%)
Alan Keyes 1% (1%)

    If that’s accurate, Mitt dropped 5 points while McCain gained the same making a 10 point spread between the two candidates.

    The next poll, from Rasmussen shows a similar trend:

    John McCain 31% (27%)
    Mitt Romney 26% (31%)
    Ron Paul 14% (7%)
    Mike Huckabee 11% (11%)
    Rudy Giuliani 8% (13%)
    Fred Thompson 5% (3%)

      Again, Mitt dropped and McCain gained. And look at little upstart Ron Paul go! Although this might be an outlier that overestimates Paul’s chances.

      The main thing to notice here is that Mitt Romney and the millions he spent to con the voters and buy his way into the nomination may soon be a memory, even if he manages to win the virtually empty state of Wyoming today. The victory, like the state itself, would be an empty one — a souvenir, or consolation prize, for Team Mittens on its way out the door.

        I think it will be interesting to see the final results. With Huckabee’s win in Iowa and the support he received from the evangelicals, I am also anxious to see what kind of impact religion will play in New Hampshire.

        I am not sure if you have heard of the independent film coming out in the next two weeks titled: “Article VI: Faith. Politics. America.” The film was directed by Bryan Hall and Jack Donaldson. It is an intense discussion of the role of faith in politics. The title is taken from Article Six of the United States Constitution: “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
