Thinning of the herd & predictions
- Thompson has dropped out, and his supporters will fall in behind Romney.
- Rudy will fight hard in Florida but lose to McCain. He will drop out soon after.
- Mitt will do well on Super Tuesday, and eventually ask Thompson to be his running mate.
- Edwards will hang in as long as possible, but will eventually bow out. His supporters will go with Obama, making the Democrat’s race even more interesting.
UPDATE: McCain was leading Romney in Florida. The gap closed as soon as Thompson withdrew.
