Today marks the 3rd presidential primary of 2008 as Michigan voters head to the polls to choose their candidates. Though this is Romney’s home turf, today’s updated polling shows him trailing Senator John McCain by a small margin, 27%-26% with Mike Huckabee in third at 15%.
If Romney loses today’s election, this could be the end-all of his campaign. He recently pulled ads from South Carolina and Florida (January 19th and 29th, respectively) to focus solely on winning Michigan. He has vowed to stay in the race through February, but a loss today will hinder his fundraising success as voters will look to other frontrunners to support.
