"McCain is far and away the most qualified man to be the Commander in Chief"
So it's really true. Rudy has at this hour withdrawn from the race. The quote listed above just aired on Fox during the Brit broadcast. Sighhhhhh...
So here's the long and short of it.
GOP voters think McCain is the most electable. It sure seems hard to argue that given that Huckabee was undercut by Thompson in South Carolina, and despite all the money spent by Romney he finds himself trailing, with massive states to try to pick up. (And as a general rule of thumb - the states where Romney spends the most - he finishes number 2 - Iowa, Florida.)
McCain has the momentum and according to the most recent Rasmussen polls BEATS Hillary by 8, and Obama by 6
Leading in the national polls, leading in the general election match-ups, and leading in the winner take all states for next Tuesday begins to add up to one big reality: Pretty much no matter how much money Romney spends, he is due for a series of perhaps close but nevertheless SECOND place finishes next Tuesday.
Bryan and Michelle are running a series of polls on how conservatives will vote - and their margin is even larger
