Gallup’s national daily tracking poll since it launched on December 5, 2011:
On Dec. 5, the gap between Mitt and the Not Romneys stood at 31 percent. Today, it’s 13 percent. Romney is up 5 percent since December 5 and the Not Romneys are down 13 percent, so most of the gap closure is because his opponents are losing steam, not because he’s gaining ground, but if the only thing you want to do is win, you don’t care about things like that. So not only do the Not Romneys remain divided, they are collectively getting weaker. And despite Rick Santorum’s surge, unless they decide to coalesce around a single candidate and stop eating their own, Romney will win.
And yes, if that happens, I’ll be laughing hilariously at the Republican Party for nominating a guy who has not only repeatedly benefited from federal bailouts, but is also credited with being the father of Obamacare.
