Re: Romney Sinking

Just a few things to add (and yes, a “birdie” delivered the report in my in box too so I’ll assume the poll numbers are right for now): 1) The RCP averages have shown a decline in Romney’s lead recently from nearly 12% to under 5% so this is not an isolated poll. 2) Romney is on the air in NH with paid TV ads. The others are not on TV although Rudy has radio ads up. So the poll movement happened while Romney still enjoyed a TV ad monopoly. 3) This has nothing to do with Thompson’s entrance that I can see- McCain and Rudy are the ones taking the votes away. 4) Did Romney’s recent debate performance, considered one of his weakest, and McCain’s strong one contribute to this? Perhaps NH voters do actually watch debates. 5) Romney is stressing a strong social conservative message and recently has been emphasizing the gay marriage issue in Iowa. This may not mesh well with fiscally conservative NH voters with a streak of libertarianism.
