Will It All Change On Wednesday?

I agree with Quin that Thompson's final ad for SC is just ok. Nothing fancy; very Thompson-esque. He's got a way to go but seems to be making some progress according to this poll. For now at least McCain is the man to beat in SC.
Another national poll, this time by Gallup, with results similar to Washington Post/ and NYT/CBS, is out showing McCain leading the pack and Huckabee in second.
Meanwhile, McCain has zoomed into the lead in California according to this with Romney, Rudy and Huckabee closely bunched.
Now after Michigan, SC and Nevada all this may change. Or not. It's always better to win.
And on Michigan,the NY Times found Romney's Detroit Economic Club speech needed a little factual updating, although needless to say they did not raise the same objections that we did around here ( the speech was greeted by deafening silence in most conservative blogosphere quarters I guess on the theory that if you don't have something nice to say...). His speech at the high school seems to have gone over like a lead balloon. ( This is NOT a Ron Paul dig.) However, he may get a boost from the weather. Moreover, if the main topic is the auto industry and not Iraq or "leadership" more generically Romney has a very good shot at it.
