A funny thing happened on the way to the coronation



"For all the hype in republican circles about getting behind the eventual nominee, the MSM seems to be pretty quite about these recent poll results...



"Minnesota looks like a toss up with any of the four candidates having some shot at winning. Santorum holds a small edge there with 29% to 27% for Romney, 22% for Gingrich, and 19% for Paul...


Tuesday has the potential to be a big day for Rick Santorum. In addition ... a Missouri survey we conducted last weekend found him with 45% to 34% for Romney and 13% for Paul. Given how quickly things have moved in this race I wouldn't assume Santorum still has that lead, especially given the momentum Romney has after big wins in Florida and Nevada. But nevertheless it looks like Santorum has a decent chance at wins in Minnesota and Missouri, and a second place finish in Colorado. 72 hours from now he may have supplanted Gingrich as the top alternative to Romney."




I say let this whole thing play out and may they best man win. It will only make for a stronger candidate and I don't think Santorum has even hit his stride yet.

I like Rick. I hope he does well.

In the meantime, national polls have Santorum beating or tied to Obama, with Romney trailing him.

I am stunned that the polls showing Santorum topping Obama aren't getting more play. Even on FoxNews, where they devoted a good bit of airtime this evening to Obama's recent bump in the polls and the tanking of favorable ratings for Romeny and Gingrich, there didn't seem to be a mention of Santorum.

Perhaps after today's voting they will have renewed interest in Santorum.

Looking pretty darned good so far! Santorum had better brace himself for the attack machine. Hopefully, Santorum will respond in a more dignified manner than Gingrich by not returning mud with mud, but rather challenging Romney to stick to the issues.

I'm hoping against hope for a great finish in Colorado and the guy goes 3 for 3 tonight!
