Romney barely eeked out a win in his homestate Michigan. Newt barely registered. Judging from Arizona and Michigan, which Newt conceded before they even started, Newt is less likely than Ron Paul to be the nominee. So why is Drudge front paging a 2% Gallup poll increase for Newt as a third comeback? Simple, Drudge wants Romney to win.
It’s no secret Drudge is a Romney supporter. Santorum has Romney on the ropes, especially when heading into some of the southern more conservative states. If Newt’s votes in Michigan went to Santorum, Romney would have lost. What has kept Romney in this race is a split vote between Newt and Santorum. Romney needs that split to survive.
I wish Newt would make another comeback. He is the best candidate with the best ideas. But don’t get your hopes up. Romney wants a perceived Newt resurgence almost as much as Newt wants a real resurgence.
