SC and the delusional Republican electorate

Via the NYT nice SC exit poll graphic:

I’m sorry, but anybody who thinks that Newt truly has a better chance than Romney of defeating Obama is truly politically delusional.

I still think you have to give overwhelming odds to Romney to win this whole thing, but the Political Scientist, political junkie, and Democrat in me all love that Newt’s performance in SC will keep this going for a bit yet and is making things so much more interesting than they looked like they would be just a week ago.

  1. Why do you put so much stock in Romney? There’s a very long time between now and the election for over $1 billion dollars to expose Romney (and not just to the partisan Republicans as a colossal flip-flopper. He couldn’t even win his Party’s nomination 4 years ago. How do you think he’s going to look when people find out he was for and then against just about everything. It’s one thing to vote for a bill before you vote against it and quite another to be pro-choice and then pro-life.

    Money, organization, and the overwhelming support of the Republican establishment. In this crazy world, I’ve learned enough to know there’s no such thing as a sure thing, but if I were putting money down, he’d be the one. You are exactly right about his flaws, but as I heard someone put in the other day, he’s the one-eyed man in a crowd of blind people.
