Great news for the Romney campaign. As Senator DeMint said on today’s show, Romney is also gaining in South Carolina, which is certain to move its primary to the week between New Hampshire and Florida primaries.
The widely reported Rasmussen numbers are interesting, but irrelevant as well to the political environment of the jammed January-February calender, an environment which will be shaped, probably decisively, by the first four contests. Romney leads in the first two of those contests. Whichis why I expect Fred Thompson to make a run at Ames –the big dog has to hunt.
