      Have the last few presidential cycles taught us nothing?

        McCain cratered in 2007 and was polling third or even fourth around this time. Immigration was killing him, I believe.

        That said, I think Romney's favored now, though I wouldn't be surprised by a Perry comeback. His strength will have to come in retail campaigning and the ad game.

          Slipped back, remortgaged his house, concentrated on Iowa and ended up winning the nomination. Plus, Obama was being written off at this point. It was only after the JJ Dinner in November that people started to take him seriously.

            ...in Iowa, Romney led in every poll from late July through late November, before Huckabee showed his first-ever lead in a poll just after Thanksgiving.

            And in New Hampshire, Romney led in every poll from early July until mid-December except for one outlier by ARG in late July showing Rudy up a point.  McCain trailed in all polling until a few ties in mid-December, and McCain didn't lead in any New Hampshire poll until after Christmas, barely a week before the primary!

            In South Carolina, after McCain's mid-2007 implosion, he did not lead in any poll in the state for 7 months from late May until after he won the New Hampshire primary.

            When the field is wide open, voters decide very late what they'll actually do.
