Today’s poll numbers from New Hampshire are very good news for Mitt Romney, and very bad news for Giuliani and McCain. However, perhaps the news is even worse for Senator-turned-actor-turned-potential candidate Fred Thompson. Thompson, who has been out of politics for some time, has been rumored to be considering a White House bid. Many thought Thompson could take the nomination if he choose to run by taking the Conservative base vote.
However, the strong performance by Romney in the May 3rd debate went a long way in proving himself to be a Conservative. The poll numbers that showed Romney to be the winner, along with polls that show Romney increasing support among Conservatives and others alike, may have just taken the wind out of Thompson’s sails. We will see what the national polls bring, as well as the next two debates, but for right now, Thompson does not seem to be moving anyplace fast.
