    Right. 

    Except Romney winning the popular vote in Mass. next year is a absolute fantasy.  Not happening.

    It's really a moot point in Mass.  Remember this is the McGovern state, the Dems have it locked, Mass would never vote for a conservative GOP candidate. There are only two possible GOP candidates that could win Mass Ron Paul with his Isolationist (no war) view point (he could ignite the left frustration) or possibly Huntsman as the Moderate Scott Brown candiate.  Both would require stronger apathy for the President.

    Unless things change over the next two month GOP debate cycle its going to be Romney or Perry.   The GOP field will thin over the next two months as the minor candiates fail to get any money; look for Newt, Cain and Santorum to bail.  It could be interesting if Bchmann regains her voice with the TP tonight and she and Perry split the TP vote then you've got Romney right there with them; I'm still holding out for Huntsman to get a stronger voice as people begin to pay attention but I only hopefully optimistic. 

    The primaries are driven by the party political machine (Romney) or the activists (TP), the middle doesn't really connect with either.

    It doesn't matter if Romney doesn't win the popular vote in MA.  The way the law is written, if Romney wins the NATIONAL popular vote (and has 270 electoral votes) then our electoral votes go to him.

    If you're referring to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, it has not yet been ratified by the EC itself, so it is not yet been enacted...

    ...not to mention the legal, constitutional and congressional barriers it may face....

    Well this latest poll seems to show that the Threat of Perry will bring the Dmes back to Obama.

    PPP: Obama leads Perry by 11
    By: Alexander Burns

    www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2011/09/americans-strongly-disagree-with-the-statements-rick-perry-made-about-social-security-in-last-weeks-republican-presidential-d.html" target="_blank">This, from PPP, is pretty helpful to the narrative Mitt Romney wants to feed right now:

    When PPP did a national poll three weeks ago Barack Obama led Perry by only 6 points at 49-43. Now that gap has widened to 11 points at 52-41. The main movement has come with Democratic voters. On the previous poll Obama had only a 68 point lead with the party base at 81-13 but now it's 80 points at 89-9. We know there are a lot of Democratic voters disenchanted with Obama right now but if the GOP puts forward someone like Perry who's willing to go after one of the Holy Grails of the party's orthodoxy like Social Security it might scare those voters back into the fold. 

    In addition to his horse race numbers taking a wrong turn Perry's favorability numbers are worse than they were 3 weeks ago as well. Only 30% of voters have a positive opinion of him to 50% with a negative one. ... 

    Mitt Romney continues to look like the considerably more electable GOP contender. He trails Obama by only 4 points at 49-45. You can see the difference between Romney and Perry's general election viability at this point particularly with independents
