LANSING, Mich. (AP) — John McCain has capitalized on his New Hampshire win and now is essentially tied for the lead with native son Mitt Romney in Michigan’s Republican primary.
Romney, desperate for a win in a state where his father was a popular governor, also has gained support in the final days leading up to Tuesday’s presidential primary. Among 604 voters likely to vote in the GOP primary, McCain is favored by 27 percent while 26 percent back Romney.
This is shocking by all accounts.
