|The 2012 Republican nominee...?|
With his convincing win in New Hampshire last night, it seems increasingly likely that Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee this fall. He is leading in the polls in South Carolina. The fact that a non-serious candidate, Ron Paul, came in second in NH makes it seem even more unlikely that any other Republican will seriously challenge Romney for the nomination.
Newt's scorched earth tactics in going after Romney for his role at Bain seems particularly ill-advised and desperate. How disappointing after Newt's more elevated above the fray approach in the earlier debates!
Short of an incredibly major gaffe or a serious health issue, Romney has pretty much got the nomination wrapped up.
