Tropical Storm Issac continues to be a potential menace to the Republican Convention in Tampa, where they are prepared to postpone the convention if necessary.

The Paul Ryan selection has produced some positive results in several swing states, where Romney has cut into Obama leads. Numbers in Ryan’s native Wisconsin, the ever-vital Florida, and the state once governed by Romney’s father, Michigan. In fact, as many as eight swing states have had recent polling suggesting a trend of at least marginal gains for Romney.

A predictive model that has picked every election since 1980 correctly is calling the election for Mitt Romney.

Finally, the GOP is seeking a new path to a majority in the Senate, one which includes a detour around Missouri, where the Republican party is all but writing off the listing candidacy of Todd Akin.

    Just wondering about something:

    If the hurricane hits the convention and Romney is killed (God forbid), would Ryan get the nomination for President?

    And no, I am not wishing for Mitt to die. I am just curious about procedure.

    True story. I’ve been exchanging emails with a guy today who’s STILL a Ron Paul supporter. Even though he knows Paul has released his delegates and is no longer a candidate for president.

    Yikes.

      When did you and Rob begin exchanging emails?

      What did the Paul supporter have to say? I fully expect these people to attempt to disrupt the GOP convention. Do you agree?

        I expect them to keep the convention honest. You might consider that a disruption.
