3 Michigan Truths

1. If Mitt Romney were a strong nominee there would be none of this hoopla in Michigan. He should be winning Michigan by more than 10%.

2. If it wasn't 2012, Rick Santorum might be able to spin his courting of Democrats to his advantage in so far as it "proves" his electability and willingness to broaden GOP appeal.

3. If Mitt Romney wins Michigan (and Arizona, as assumed), Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich will perform better on Super Tuesday in what's become a reliable pattern of hesitancy on the part of voters when any candidate appears to possess a momentum that could lead them to the nomination with successive victories.
