In the last couple of days, polls indicate that Marco Rubio has finally begun gaining ground in Iowa, climbing from single to double digits behind Ted Cruz and, of course, The Donald. Since Cruz has the better organization and Trump is dominating television and radio, what accounts for Rubio’s modest surge?
In part, at least, this video, which has gone viral in Iowa. Evangelicals find it compelling, apparently, but I’d make a larger claim on its behalf than that: In its sheer honesty and authenticity, any voter would find it compelling. Who knows what this video might accomplish in the next 72 hours?
UPDATE: I see now that Casey posted this clip a week ago — and that his post attracted a couple of hundred comments. Mea maxima culpa. I happened to be especially busy in the middle of last week, so I missed the discussion altogether. Ironic, no? I’m behind the news… because I failed to keep with my our very own Ricochet.
