Posted on 01/03/2012 6:07:34 PM PST by SmithL
GOP political consultant Steve Schmidt, one of the toughest guys in the business and the guru behind the 2008 John McCain presidential campaign, said that early polls suggest Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann are likely no longer plausible candidates after tonight.
And he told MSNBC it increasingly looks like former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum may well emerge as the chief alternative to Mitt Romney.
With Santorum showing strong in early exit polls, Schmidt an MSNBC analyst told the network moments ago that Santorum is going to have to make a lot of decisions very quickly if he comes out on top tonight..hes going to have to be drinking water out of a fire hose.

Indeed. that should be the “goo-goo” behind the 2008 McCain campaign.
I think he’s worried that one of those icky conservatives will regain some support as Ron Paul falls off after Iowa.
Things are a bit different this primary season and I want the conservatives to stay in so we can see how things shake out.
Personally I want a single primary day nationwide.
What is this, an episode of Mitt-busters?
(I'd suggest "viable" but that would start a pro-life avalanche.)
Steve Schmidt is a JackAss!
The only people listening to this dolt are uninformed conservatives, moderates, and liberals.
Like Romney, Santorum can’t win in the South. McCain came in 4th place four years ago in Iowa. The baldfaced lies
from richey mitt romney worked. That one trick pony wont play when the primaries swing to all points South!
Newt Gingrich will win the GOP nomination.
I could be wrong but I think I remember Schmidt as being behind the smearing of Sarah Palin, anyone else besides me remember this guy?
you are correct, schmidt is a rat.

Right. That’s why the only gig he can get is on MSNBC, for eff’s sake.
You don’t consider Santorum a conservative??
Brains behind McCain?
Your right , this village idiot was campaigning to blame and smear Palin.
A creep and moron who could only get a gig trashing the GOP like
Traitor Joe on MS-DNC
Such a tough GOP "guru" that he's working for MSNBC.
Who the hell is Steve Schmidt?
