Everything is going wrong for the Romney campaign, but one thing is certain in politics: This too shall pass. So look for the story line to change dramatically at some point before the election.
Election Day is seven weeks from today. That’s too long for the media to keep saying Romney is a terrible candidate, his campaign is in disarray, even Republicans are piling on, Obama is certain to win, etc., etc.
At some point, something will happen to change the narrative. Given the increasingly low expectations, Romney may surprise us in the debates. At this point, he’ll be seen as doing well if he doesn’t fall over when he walks in.
Maybe it will be the Middle East. Maybe Obama or Biden will make a big gaffe. Maybe something with the economy.
But something, at some point, will give the media a chance to make this a close race. Count on it.
