Since there is no Democratic primary in Michigan, the big money lib/prog Democrats and elitists decided to sabotage Mitt Romney's campaign by pushing Rick Santorum, much to his delight.Â A story I read earlier in the day, noted the robo-calls are pushing for Santorum and then caller is asked to 'push one' if they will comply, and early results had 12,000 people ready to join the assault.
This is probably nothing new in politics but found it interesting the Obama campaign war chest already has over $1Billion ready for fall, and now the Obama Super PAC and MoveON have joined the attack.Â Should make it very interesting - all eyes will be on Michigan, Romney's birth state and where his father was once governor.
Pundits ALWAYS set the parameters of all campaigns and note if Romney doesn't win Michigan, his campaign is in trouble.Â Well, perhaps if only Republicans were voting in the Republican primary, that could have been true.Â More turmoil and uncertainty in the Republican Party.Â Time for Ron Paul to step in and allow all neocons to destroy themselves!
Itâ€™s becoming more and more evident that Democrats, including Democrat party machine, are trying to sabotage the election in Michigan in favor of Santorum. Clearly theyâ€™ve decided, and with good reasons, that Santorum would be a much weaker General Election opponent, or even if he doesnâ€™t win, a Michigan win would further bloody Romney, and delay the nomination victory.
Early last week, Mitt Romney appeared to be pulling away from Rick Santorum in Michigan. However, the Obama Super PAC, the Obama campaign, and MoveOnÂ all engaged with an anti-Romney ad barrage, and it appears to beÂ turning the tideâ€¦
Like IÂ wrote last week, this is a multi-pronged effort to deliver Santorum the victory in Michiganâ€”the first is the big-money campaign to drive Romneyâ€™s numbers down among independents (who can obviously vote in this primary), and the second is our modest (and yes, controversial) effort to get Democrats to cast very legal and proper votes for Rick Santorum. The Michigan Democratic Party hasÂ also engaged, urging Democrats in the state to cast votes in the primary, and reminding them that casting such votes in no way prohibits them from voting in Democratic contests later in the year.
PPPâ€™s final poll in Michigan finds Rick Santorum holding on to the smallest of leads with 38% to 37% for Mitt Romney, 14% for Ron Paul, and 9% for Newt Gingrichâ€¦Â Much has been made of Democratic efforts to turn out the vote for Santorum and we see evidence thatâ€™s actually happening. Romney leads with actual Republican voters, 43-38. But Santorumâ€™s up 47-10 with Democratic voters, and even though theyâ€™re only 8% of the likely electorate thatâ€™s enough to put him over the top. The big question now is whether those folks will actually bother to show up and vote tomorrow.
PPP further tweeted: â€œ55% of Santorum Democrats in Michigan like him, 40% donâ€™t. Looks like mix between sincere votes and Operation Hilarityâ€
So when and if Santorum prevails tomorrow, letâ€™s Â not pretend it was the pure will of the anti-Romney conservatives. We got the Left fully engaged and pulling for good ole Rick.
Update: Santorumâ€™s campaign is engaging in it too:
