How big is the rally to Romney? I will ask Scott Rasmussen in the last hour of today’s program.
Big swings in short times have marked Campaign 2008, and an almost impossible-to-quantify-in-terms-of-impact new dynamic from the new media’s role has overtaken MSM’s ability to forecast results much less determine outcomes.
Here are three polls from California: Reuters-CSpan/Zogby has Romney up 8 points. Rasmussen has it tied. SurveyUSA has McCain up 3.
All three show a tremendous rally to Romney as do polls from Georgia, Missouri and Tennessee. The Huck voters are switching to Romney in order to make their vote count and to keep the GOP committed to a conservative agenda, but McCain has enormous Beltway support and an MSM force-field around his record. Rush et al have been vocal throughout the day as they were last week, and will continue to be tomorrow, and Romney’s campaign has gone straight on McCain on the immigration issue in California.
Romney’s decision to return to Long Beach airport tonight for a final rally to compete for the minutes on local television underscores how the Golden State, for the first time in years, will have a huge say in the nomination for both the Dems and the GOP. If Romney can win in the home of Reagan, he will have a great chance at leading the party of Reagan in the fall, regardless of how the Rockefeller Republicans vote in NY.
