Rasmussen: Rudy, Thompson, or Romney Could All Still Win, Or Still Lose

Underwhelming, huh? Yeah. Kind of obvious but good empty calories for political junkies hungry for a snack:

At this point, it is possible to envision how each of the three could lose their particular advantage as the campaign unfolds. Any hint that Giuliani is not the best candidate to win in November could doom his campaign. Any serious challenge to Thompson’s conservative credentials could do the same to him. Anything less than decisive wins in Iowa and New Hampshire could mean the end for Romney’s team.

At the same time, simply holding their ground is not sufficient for any of these candidates. If they are to win the nomination, they must gain ground in one of their competitors strongholds....

This leads to a fourth candidate, John McCain, who is a very long-shot at this point. But, he is still hanging around in case all three of the other candidates stumble.

The big news, I guess, is not that Thompson had a bounce, which was expected, or that Rudy barely (by most polls) held on to the front-runner status, but that John McCain is getting a second look from Republicans.

I'm not going to plug him, but he certainly has been acting lately like a guy I could vote for -- if I weren't so strongly predisposed against him already. My own position has changed on him from When Pigs Fly To Hell For Dove Bars to If He Can Pull It Out, He Deserves My Support.

I mean, this is some bloody-juicy steak tartare right here.

Allah's got some issues over the "they ought to be thrown out of the country" line. Me, not so much. 1, it seems off the cuff, 2, I don't think he was being literally serious and 3, quite frankly, if they love France Iran so much why don't they just marry it already.
