Romney's Hope

Despite trailing in most national polls to Rick Perry, Jonathan Martin notes Mitt Romney's campaign is not yet worried and hoping three things might happen: 1) that Sarah Palin jumps into the race and pulls Tea Party voters away from Perry, 2) that Michigan moves up its primary in the GOP calendar, and 3) that Perry will make a mistake in the series of post-Labor Day debates.

"Hoping Palin gets in and Bachmann stays strong to take a chunk of Palin's conservative votes, hoping the calendar shuffle works in your favor, and hoping Perry falters badly under the hot lights of the debate stage could ultimately be just that -- a hope."
