I know, I know, it is really slow around here, and everywhere really. Even the political world seems to be on vacation.
The Blue Water Wind deal is dead for now. How nice. And how anti-climatic after all the hard work and effort to get that deal agreed to in the first place. Hopefully new financing and investors can be found in the coming year or two so that the deal can be revived.
The Iowa and national polling shows no real new surprise:
NATIONAL (Gallup Tracking): Gingrich 25, Romney 24, Paul 11, Perry 8, Bachmann 6, Santorum 3, Huntsman 2
IOWA (PPP Tracking): Paul 24, Romney 20, Gingrich 13, Bachmann 11, Perry 10, Santorum 10, Huntsman 4, Roemer 2
If only scientists can somehow combine Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann and Santorum into one ultra conservative super hero, that candidate would sweep every primary and caucas en route to the nomination.
Although, in New Hampshire, the latest Boston Globe poll shows Mitt Romney cruising to an easy primary win, leading the field with 39%. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are tied for second with 17%, and Jon Huntsman is the only other candidate to reach double digits, garnering 11%.
