The Conservative “base” of the GOP doesn’t like Senator John S. McCain. They comprise approximately one-third of the GOP.
That leaves two-thirds for John McCain to pull from. And independents in open-primary states of which, there are a few on Super Tuesday.
This all proved to work just fine for McCain last night in the winner-take-all Florida primary.
Of course, Mitt Romney has oodles of cash. And he’ll spend it. But he’s spent about $40 Million of his own money – and he still is not the front runner. He may be a financial wizard – but he’s pouring money into the wrong brand.
