Santorum on the rise?

From the looks of the polls, Santorum has a good shot in both Minnesota and Missouri. If he takes both of them, not only does Gingrich get pushed out of the way, Romney is also pushed to either defend his record better or to vet Santorum, since he's not had much vetting to date. Colorado is the third state of the day, tomorrow, but Romney will likely take that one. I still see the Romney becoming a stronger candidate over time as he responds to attacks from the right to prepare for (presumably) eventual attack from the left. And I disagree with 'conventional wisdom' that this infighting hurts the GOP candidate's chances against Obama in the primary. Any dirt dug up now by the GOP will be old news by general election time. Obama, on the other hand, has tons of naive voters about to be enlightened as to his true record in office.
