Tim Pawlenty, Thaddeus McCotter and now Chris Christie. Mitt Romney is racking up big name endorsements from both former presidential contendors and former potential presidential contendors. But this may not be enough for Mitt Romney. Based on recent polls ( http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/americas/united-states/111007/herman-cain-gains-20-point-lead-mitt-romney ) Herman Cain is actually beating Mitt Romney, and he doesn't even have any big name endorsements that I know of. The argument is, of course, that Mitt Romney has had a lot of staying power in first place, no matter how often second placers (T-Paw, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Ron Paul?) bit at his ankles, he stayed in first place, even if it wasn't by a comfortable margin. This is the first time I have seen Mitt Romney get surpassed in a poll (not to say this is the first time he's ever been surpassed in a poll).
This is my first presidential race. I'm a political nerd, and I get very excited about these things. I'm also excited to see that all the money in the world and a pocket full of fancy endorsements may not be enough to win the nomination, if the previously mentioned poll is any indication.
Maybe the people still have some power.
