Romney Rising!
September 12th, 2011

Great news for Mitt Romney in the new CNN poll. Sure, he’s down 12 points to Perry, but that’s a big improvement from the last CNN poll, which had him down 13!

But wait, it gets even better. In the last CNN survey, Romney only polled at 14 points. Now he’s up to 18. Where did those points come from? Michelle Bachman, mostly. And now that Tim Pawlenty has joined Team Romney, things will really start to accelerate for the governor as the conservative establishment coalesces behind him. Once Pawlenty’s 2 points get factored in, Perry’s lead should get cut to +10. And from there, Katie bar the door.

    Prediction: The more people hear Perry, the less unexcellent Romney will seem, so he’ll end up backing his way slowly into to the nomination.

    The in-the-tank for Perry bit is getting old.

    The Romney snark, not so much.
