I can’t believe this, from David Freddoso:
The latest polls show Romney 16 points ahead in Iowa and up 15 in New Hampshire. Another poll shows he’s picking up all of Thompson’s slack in South Carolina, now tied with or leading Giuliani. If he wins those three, he will win Florida and do well enough on Feb. 5 to take it away.
I don’t claim to understand the politics of Evangelical Protestants, but I have a hard time believing that an endorsement from Pat Robertson has any value for Giuliani or anyone else. We’ll have to see what the next poll looks like in Michigan, but I’m feeling more confident about the first part of my prediction.
Update: From a reader…
As an Evangelical Protestant, I can confirm that at least for me this endorsement tells me (or confirms for me) much more about Pat than it does about Rudy. I can’t imagine that there are more than a handful of us EPs who’d see it differently.
I never expected the campaign to be at this point already.
