Romney wins by 5 points? Maybe…

April 23, 2012

Mary Matalin, well-known Republican consultant, is hosting Rush Limbaugh today. She just said that she thinks Romney will defeat Obama by five to seven percentage points.

If you don’t know who she is, check her out on the intertubes. Pretty amazing woman. Not the least of her accomplishments is her long-term marriage to James Carville, who was one of the most influential Democratic consultants during the Clinton era. Carville is…interesting. (He’s the guy, sort of, played by Billy Bob Thornton in the Clinton tell-all film Primary Colors.Today, he teaches at Tulane University.)

And she’s from Calumet City, Illinois, and went to Western Illinois University!

Boy, do I hope she’s right. I tend to trust her gut more than most political pundits.
