Okay, here goes. I've really hesitated over this one, but I think that John McCain is going to win tomorrow's Florida primary, but it'll be a real squeaker. Romney will be a close second, trailed by Giuliani (curtains for him), and Huckabee.
Last week, this race looked like a squeaker also, but in Romney's favor. I think that the recent endorsements, by Governor Crist and some newspapers; combined with the idea that Republicans might just have a chance, after all, this year -- will be just barely enough to put Senator McCain over the top. Speaking of endorsements, perhaps the rather transparent New York Times endorsement/political kiss-of-death will have a positive effect for McCain, possibly not quite what its makers intended.
If El Jefe's prediction works out to be, well, suboptimal, the usual suspects will be rounded up at once.
ADDENDUM: (29 Jan.). Other predictions from around the blogosphere:
Label Free Zone says McCain wins -- that the Crist and Martinez endorsements are possibly decisive.
NB Politico also gives it to McCain (34 percent) to Romney's 27 percent.
Political Tipster says Romney -- by about a seventh of a percentage point.
California Yankee gives it to McCain.
These folks all have percentage breakdowns. They're braver folks than I, Gunga Din. Since it's winner take all in Florida, it doesn't much matter: there's a winner, and everybody else.
