I love it when someone sticks his neck out, and then looks around to see if anyone else is also. Hewitt is a talk show host and is great for finding out what others think and the riffing on that with his own comments. Sort of like what I do here.

Hewitt thinks Romney is going to win on Tuesday. And he’s glad to ride Michael Barone‘s coattails while doing so:

[Yesterday] Barone, having surveyed all the polling data from every source and all the early voting numbers from all the states, sees Mitt Romney rolling up 315 Electoral College votes, including the states of Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Wisconsin –and Pennsylvania!

That agrees with what Hewitt thinks:

Other evidence is rolling in to back up Barone’s prediction, most especially the not-friendly-to-Romney Post tracking poll which put the governor a point ahead of the president on Friday night, a post-Sandy sign of a momentum swing towards Romney.

He thinks Hurricane Sandy helped Romney. He quotes another observer who agrees with him:

The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard speculated on the Fox News Channel Friday afternoon that the aftermath of Sandy has resulted in spreading dismay which is further dampening an already depressed American spirit, thus increasing the desire for a change and what Romney calls “a fresh start.”

He also thinks, as I do, that Friday’s report isn’t going to do any good:

Indeed, the suffering and misery from New Jersey and New York underscore how tough the country has had it for the past four years, just as the new unemployment number did Friday morning.

That 7.9% number is higher than when President took office, a definitive declaration of failure on the economic front, one that reminds us of the president’s “one term proposition,” prediction of years ago.

And the disaffected and offended are joining Mitten’s army of dissidents:

New armies of energized Roman Catholics and Evangelicals are mobilizing across the country to defend their religious freedom, under direct assault from the president and his team of ideologues at HHS. They are joined by small businessmen and women from across the nation who have had it with and rules, a mind-numbing tidal wave of regulatory overkill that is driving them down.

Hewitt ends hopefully:

As Barone’s conclusions make clear, the momentum is with Mitt, and thus the country has a real chance for the fresh start it so desperately needs.

By now you know that I am far less hopeful about any such fresh start under Mittens. But let’s solve one problem at a time.
