If you haven’t seen this map from Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, then you might be missing why the tide seems to be turning towards Mitt Romney.
Sabato calls it a “Newt-mare,” a spin on the word nightmare. If Gingrich is the nominee, it’s not just the presidency that Republicans lose, but a lot of those seats they picked up in Congress in 2010. That fear may very well be driving people to link up behind Romney.
I’d like to urge Republicans to support Gingrich but I can’t. There’s simply too much time between now and November and anything could happen. The last thing I’d want is having this megalomaniac as president. I don’t get the sense that Romney is the authoritarian that Gingrich is.
Obviously, I’d prefer that neither of them become president.
