Josh Marshall says that the convention didn’t give Romney the bounce he needed, so what’s left?
That leaves the debates as the big lever of change. But Romney just isn’t that strong a debater. At least not someone I’d see having a breakout there. If things stay where there are now for the next month, expect Romney to make some high stakes moves in those three encounters.
But what’s left? Vast and possibly unlimited (what’s to stop Koch and Adelson from jumping in with another $250 million?) SuperPac money. That may end up as the last potential game changer. And we have very little experience or data on what that sort of spending can do concentrated at the end of a presidential run.
Massive amounts of money will be poured into a campaign that’s attempting to keep the extreme right fringe happy (I’d never take God off our currency!). I’ll bet you $10,000 Mitt’s going to go full retard.
