There are two ‘races’ in the Republican Presidential field.
One is the ‘race’ to the nomination. The other will be the ‘race’ in the General Election.
This is why Former Governor Mitt Romney won’t be the Republican nomniee :
‘Nine states have voted so far, and in six of them the former Massachusetts governor has shed supporters who voted for him in 2008, winning fewer votes in each of those states than he did last time’.
From : http://p.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/19/romney-shows-trouble-keeping-supporters-from-2008/
‘The frontrunner (Rick Santorum) for the Republican presidential nomination says that that President Barack Obama embraces a ‘phony theology’; that large-scale public education is an outdated idea, and that contraception is ‘not okay.’ And let’s not forget his statement last month that he didn’t want to ‘make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.’

Rush Limbaugh – ‘Romney is not a conservative. He’s not, folks’.

Rush Limbaugh – “I think there’s a possibility of something happening nobody’s talking about — and that’s the reemergence of Newt”.

Eric Erickson of Red State – ‘Mitt Romney as the Nominee: Conservatism Dies and Barack Obama Wins’
From : http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/11/08/mitt-romney-as-the-nominee-conservatism-dies-and-barack-obama-wins/
Romney’s very unenthusiastic performance so far, Rick Santorum energising the Republican base and the two stalwart Conservative performers denouncing Romney.
Romney may still win Michigan and Arizona (but with very narrow wins) but on Super Tuesday the South will raise up and so may Ohio. All against Romney.
Who could have imagined that after Super Tuesday, instead of having the clear frontrunner being Mitt Romney, instead what may will be left is Santorum and Gingrich with Paul collecting enough Caucus State delegates to hold off a first ballot victory at the Convention.
What should have been a year long victory lap for the Republicans has turned into a circus.
