I’ve about decided that Santorum is the last chance for a not Romney remaining. I don’t see how Gingrich comes back even if Santorum drops out. If Santorum fades now, Romney wins AZ and MI. Coupled with the near sweep on Super Tuesday (In most states where Romney is not now ahead, he he polling second to Santorum), Romney gets about 1/2 to the nomination after just over 1/3 have been allocated. I don’t see Gingrich picking up the 20 points in the polls he needs in 10 days.
If you are right, God save us all.
You are probably right, except that the non-Romney vote has to go somewhere. This has not been a logical process, where a huge 20-30% of the electorate has jumped from one candidate to the next, to the next every few weeks. That group has never gone to Romney. It is possible it would migrate back to Newt.
Your feeling is similar to mine in that Romney probably holds on enough to win the states he needs to win. Who would ever know in this crazy process, though. I never expected Santorum to even be a factor, nothing against him, but he was wallowing in the 1-5% range until days before Iowa.
