Wingnuts Abandon Romney, Point to Jindal?

With the Romney camp burning cash and desperate to win, the wingnuts are jumping off a sinking ship like rats. Louisiana’sMarch 24th primary is a definitely battleground, with the last 4 public polls showing Gingrich leading or competitive. Of course, these samples were taken during the Gingrich boomlet that reached its zenith in South Carolina. Still, take this to heart:

Louisiana Republican Presidential Primary

Poll Date Sample Gingrich Romney Paul Santorum Spread
Clarus Research 11/20 – 11/22 300 LV 31 23 6 0 Gingrich +8
Clarus Research 10/5 – 10/7 304 LV 4 17 4 0 Romney +13
PPP (D) 8/21 – 8/22 358 LV 25 16 7 Gingrich +9
PPP (D) 6/12 – 6/13 400 RV 24 14 6 Gingrich +10

Still, without much data available, Louisiana is still playing a small role in the constant circus that is the GOP primary. Romney’s rejection is nearly complete:

You can smell the desperation:

When you have a candidate few people really like, whose support is a mile wide and an inch deep, whose raison d’etre (a 4am fancy word) is fixing an economy that is fixing itself without him, and who only wins his actual, factual home state by three percentage points against a guy no one took seriously only two months ago, there really is little reason for independent voters in the general election to choose him if the economy keeps improving. Seriously, putting it bluntly, conservatives may not like Barack Obama, but most other people do. And when faced with a guy you like and a guy you don’t like who says he can fix an economy that no longer needs fixing, you’re going to go with the guy you like.

If Republicans in Washington are not panicked and trying desperately to pull Bobby Jindal in the race tomorrow, or someone like him, the party leaders must have a death wish.

The comedy in this concept cannot be over-looked. Don’t remember his SOTU response in 2009? Oh, you know, the one conservative commentator David Brooks called a “Disaster” for the GOP?
