With the clock counting down and folks getting ready to vote in tomorrow's all-important Florida Republican primary, the desperation of Newt Gingrich and supporters is getting quite ridiculous.
Newsmax, which I have as my homepage, has become Newt central: publishing stories faster then Gingrich press releases are filed. Sarah Palin is warning of the establishment, and the need to stop Romney at all costs, while Newt fans are touting a single poll showing him down by a few points, without mentioning the ten that have him down ten or more.
They all know Romney already has some 250,000 votes in the bag from early and Hispanic voters, another 350,000 at least from 2008's primary and who knows how many from his ongoing surge in almost every Republican constituency. Not to mention, but he's got Nevada in the bag for Saturday.
I guess anything could still happen, but if Newt keeps inviting Romney to debate on character and their records on marriage, ethics and arrogance are compared, we'll be talking about a majority for Romney; not a strong plurality.
What say you?
