Can Daily Kos claim victory for Mitt Romney's success in Michigan's primary? We'll have to wait and see for all of the analyses to be completed, but Rasmussen reported that their last Wednesday's poll had Romney beating John McCain by only 1% (26% to 25%) and at a little after 9:00pm on the 15th, NRO had Romney at 35% and McCain at 29%. On the 10th, Markos Moulitsas (Who runs Daily Kos) suggested: "Let's have some fun in Michigan" by throwing votes to Romney (Who is predicted to be a general election loser at 13% preference to McCain's 22% and Mike Huckabee's 21%, so it's very much in the interest of Democrats to keep Romney in the race) and well, Michigan liberals did! Markos suggested that all loyal Kossacks cross party lines and vote in the Republican primary for Romney. As John Bambenek, a Republican, thought that sounded illegal and launched a lawsuit over it, Kagro X used the suit as an excuse to explain in detail why, no it wasn't illegal. In short, Michigan has no restrictions on voters in presidential primaries crossing party lines. So "the Great Orange Satan" (DKos) triumphs again!!!
