Romney is now a little ahead of Santorum in Michigan, but trails Obama there by 18 points:

2/22: Romney and Santorum Neck and Neck in Michigan | Home of the Marist Poll: Pebbles and Pundits

The Obama plan that rescued the auto industry is VERY popular in Michigan, among Dems AND Republicans. Romney is going to get creamed on this issue here in Nov.

I have reservations about that poll as a whole. The numbers just look way too out of whack. But, nevertheless, I never expected any GOP member to capture Michigan, at least not given the current times.

The last time a Republican won Michigan was 1988 -- one of those classic Reagan/Bush one-sided thumpings of the Dems in presidential elections. Of course he won't win it in the general election. The GOP has managed to **** off the unions too much lately. Great Lakes states are big union strongholds, none moreso than Michigan. No way Romney or any other GOP candidate can win Michigan in the general election.

At this point, Michigan is just a state Romney needs to get back on track for the GOP nomination. Romney is by no means the inevitable nominee of the GOP.
