Michigan GOP Primary Today

Today is the day for the Michigan GOP Presidential primary, the state where the father of Mitt Romney, the late George Romney, was once Governor.

Romney grew up in Michigan, but he has had a tough time selling voters on the notion that he should be the GOP nominee for President.

His biggest problem of late has been John McCain, who has experienced the comeback surge of historic proportions, rising from a dismal 4% standing in the polls to a 34% lead.

McCain and Romney have been running neck and neck in Michigan, and it would appear that the edge has been given to McCain, although Romney's appeal to traditional factory workers in the state could tip the scales in his favor.

This is do-or-die time for Romney. He will not win South Carolina or Florida. If he cannot win in the state where his family has had a traditional stronghold, then his campaign is immediately in trouble.

Only three candidates are in serious contention for the top spot in Michigan--McCain, Romney, and Huckabee. Of the three, McCain is clearly the best choice.

So stay tuned. We should have the results by early this evening.
