South Carolina Is The Last Chance For Republicans To Challenge Romney

January 11, 2012 1 comment

With the New Hampshire primary in the rear view mirror and a convincing Mitt Romney victory in the books, time is rapidly running out for Republican presidential candidates to pose a formidable threat to the former Massachusetts governor.

I believe that the upcoming primary in South Carolina on January 21st is the last realistic opportunity that guys like Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have in this race.  If this race ends up like recent polling suggests, Romney will have essentially sealed up the Republican nomination.

What Is Your Republican Candidate Doing This Saturday Night?

January 10, 2012 8 comments

One of the more humorous moments that came out of the recent New Hampshire debate in my opinion was George Stephanopoulos’ question at the end of the evening.  He asked each of the candidates where they would be on Saturday night if they weren’t busy debating each other.

There was some humanity in the answers.  There was more than a little bit of folly.  And of course there were some careful crafted political responses.

In case you hadn’t seen the clip, you can follow the link here.

Here was each person’s response.

Rick Perry – “I’d probably be at the shooting range.”

Yes!  I love this answer!  Spoken like a true Texan.  I might have jumped on the Perry bandwagon a few months ago had I heard candor like this (and assuming he didn’t make all those subsequent mistakes).

New Hampshire Primary Preview: Romney Can Seal The Deal

January 10, 2012 10 comments

Today marks the first official primary of the election season.  New Hampshire, which currently ranks #42 out of the 50 states in population, continues to hold a disproportionately large influence in the race for president by holding their primary earlier than anyone else in the country.

Mitt Romney has been leading the polls in New Hampshire since the start.  The latest polls indicate that he has well over a double digit lead over Ron Paul and should cruise to victory.  The bigger battle may be for second place.  Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman are within a couple percent of each other and Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are not that far behind them.

Romney Reigns As Republican Front Runner

January 6, 2012 8 comments

Following his narrow win in the Iowa Caucus, I just don’t see any way that Mitt Romney does not capture the Republican nomination to face Barack Obama in November.

Yes, I know a couple of other candidates could sneak in there and winning Iowa is by no means a guarantee of making it to November.  But I’m really failing to see another candidate generating enough momentum in time to take down Romney before it’s too late.

The other Iowa darling, Rick Santorum, is expected to fall short of the necessary funding and manpower to make a real push towards the nomination.  Plus, despite a surge in polling numbers in the upcoming primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, he is still well behind Romney in each of those contests and will need to pick up a win soon before he falls too far behind.
