For those back on planet earth, this is a sober analysis of Romney’s difficulties, but also his real strengths in Michigan. I do agree with the McCain camp that Huckabee’s presence in Michigan makes it hard for Romney to find his niche. Social conservatives who make up a significant slice of the GOP primary electorate now have a more authentic champion on their issues who, they now believe, can actually win. McCain gets the moderate GOP voters and a very big chunk of the Independents. Not that many people left. Thursday’s debate, although in SC, will give him a chance to talk to Michigan voters and give us a hint as to what the latest Romney tactic will be ( I’m betting on “businessman fixer” but it could be “three legged stool,” or then again maybe “McCain is the Washington insider.”).

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
