Romney Should Run Scared in Michigan

Mitt Romney’s victories in the Maine Republican caucus and the CPAC straw poll may have, as I wrote yesterday, stopped the bleeding after a week in which Rick Santorum’s sweep of three states halted the frontrunner’s momentum. But a pair of polls from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling firm as well as one from the American Research Group ought to be scaring the pants off of Romney’s camp. As I wrote yesterday, PPP’s national poll of Republicans shows, in distinction to other surveys, Santorum taking a huge lead over Romney in the wake of his wins last Tuesday. But far more interesting are new polls of Michigan Republicans that also show Santorum leading Romney in his home state. A PPP Michigan poll shows Santorum leading there by a 39-24 percent margin. The ARG poll also has him ahead, though by a smaller 33-27 percent differential.

Immigration was the topic; both sides argued that it should either be curtailed or that the UK must stay its pluralistic course.

Moreover, it has been accompanied by a wave of global terrorism.

Are Unknown Soldiers Identifiable?

Do we forget soldiers who might still be recovered?

For too many Americans, Memorial Day is a day off from school or work, or the beginning of the summer barbecue season. Of course, it should be much, much more than that. It should be a day to remember, honor, and offer gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives so that the United States, Europe, Australia, and large swaths of Asia might be free.
