Ok, I apologize. With 95% of the vote in, Romney leads McCain by 39 points instead of just 30.
Feel better? Assuming of course that being embarrassingly wrong makes you feel good.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 19.01.2008 @ 18:07
From what I have been hearing, the SC weather thing thus far is mostly a rain event.
We'll see. Romney may still squeeze out a second place.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 19.01.2008 @ 14:32
Well, it looks like Romney could win Nevada by as much as 30 Points! Holy cow! At this point, McCain may actually LOSE to Ron Paul!
The fact that this election is becoming ABOUT THE ECONOMY, that plays very well into Romney's hands.
Wow, Romney is just CRUSHING in Nevada.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 19.01.2008 @ 14:30
HERE IS MY SHOCKING PREDICTION:
Before I give this, let me express my gratitude that God himself obviously does NOT want McCain to be the Nominee. I mean, when was the last time it SNOWED in SC and it does it exactly on the day of the Primary when most of McCain's support is moderates (who rarely vote in bad weather) and older veterans (who rarely vote in bad weather).
Ok, Huckabee wins. Weather or no, expect Evangelicals to show up in busloads to vote for their guy. Surprisingly, McCain places THIRD behind Romney! Thompson is finished.
Romney wins NV by double-digits.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 19.01.2008 @ 10:19
Wow, is that the same Zogby who overestimated Ind/Dem turnout by 15% and the final numbers by 10%?
That Zogby? Oh yeah, let's listen to HIM.
Rasmussen has SC almost within the margin of error for all 4 candidates.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 17.01.2008 @ 16:36
Expect Huckabee to start attacking McCain in SC. If Huckabee can't win SC, his campaign is OVER. If Huckabee can't beat McCain in "Evangelical Grand Central Station", he can't win anywhere.
Expect McCain to start attacking Huckabee. If McCain loses SC after being creamed in Michigan, his campaign is OVER.
These guys will HAVE to go on the attack starting today.
Romney has smartly bowed out and is going for Nevada where he gets to campaign alone. NV has 10 more delegates than SC, BTW.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 17.01.2008 @ 08:38
ANN COULTER ENDORSES ROMNEY!
In her article, Coulter says that based upon her research, the ONLY thing Mitt has "flipped" on is choice.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 17.01.2008 @ 08:35
No, actually, it's not.
Support for McCain will collapse this week to pre-"Mac Attack" levels. Face it, McCain is getting slaughtered with the base. Not just beat but slaughtered.
The fact that pundits have McCain actually winning the most conservative state of all when he is the least conservative candidate, to me, is laughable. Expect Romney, Thompson and yes, even the gentle Mr (slash-their-tires-if-they-don't-vote-for-me) Huckabee to attack McCain hard this week.
McCain will place 3rd or 4th in SC. His campaign is over. Romney will place 1st or 2nd, win in Nevada and win Florida (old people like Romney and there are LOTS of them in Florida).
After Florida is done, this race will be OVER with Romney the nominee.
P.S., Rick, after your McCain the "Mr Inevitable" thread I am starting to doubt your political instincts.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 16.01.2008 @ 09:34
Well, "Mr Inevitable" just became "Mr Unelectable". No chance in HELL McCain wins in uber-conservative South Carolina.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 16.01.2008 @ 07:57
Don't know if it matters, but INTRADE and RASMUSSEN MARKETS has Roney waaaaay ahead.Comment Posted By Bill Mitchell, Raleigh, NC On 15.01.2008 @ 18:01
