Can this really be happening? New polls are saying that Michele Bachmann has literally caught Mitt Romney -- and in some polls, they actually have her leading.
I knew Romney was a bad candidate and that his support could evaporate quickly, but this is still stunning. Bachmann was in the single digits just a few weeks ago. The debate appearance in New Hampshire really turned things around for her.
Bachmann is the furthest to the right of any candidate in the field.
This is a good thing for Conservatives.
There is still time for other candidates to jump into the race, but that window is closing. We are seven months away from the Iowa Caucus, and if voters don't know you are running for President by now, you might not have enough time to persuade them by then.
