Romney in trouble in Iowa

– Liz Mair

According to a new ARG poll, it is veritably so.

Romney 26%
Huckabee 24%

Looks like maybe this:

hasn't worked out so well for him after all.

By the way, this comment from Huckabee:

I think Mitt Romney would rather keep people out of college so they can keep working on his lawn

is one of the funniest, and most to-the-point statements I've heard in a long time. I also think the fact that Huckabee is willing to go in hard on this and make an issue of it, rather than running defense, shows that Romney is vulnerable on the subject of immigration-- as indeed he should be. After all, this is a guy who totally did squat about illegal immigration and in fact supported comprehensive immigration reform until he realized that a lot of conservatives disagreed with him on the issue. And, as we all know now, whatever conservatives want to hear is whatever Romney says, whether or not it has anything to do with any position he has historically held.

Side note: they're talking RomneyCare on Tucker. Bill Press-- Bill Press, people-- is the only one on the show who likes the scheme. That should tell us all something.
