For Romney, it May All Ride on Michigan

Following "silvers" in both Iowa and New Hampshire, Mitt Romney has a lot riding in Michigan, and some speculate anything other than a first place showing there may well put him out of the race. The former Massachusetts governor has pulled advertising from South Carolina and other states to focus on the Wolvernine State where he hopes family history will help put him on top.

In the wake of McCain's New Hampshire victory polls showed Romney and the Arizona senator in a neck and neck battle for first, but Sunday's MSNBC/McClatchy/Mason-Dixon poll has Romney ahead of McCain by eight points.

WBUR's Fred Thys is on the campaign trail with the former Massachusetts governor and has this report.
