Santorum Surprise!

Congratulations to Santorum, he has arrived! May Newt Gingrich rest in peace and stay out of the way. While Minnesota and Missouri were anticipated wins for Santorum, Colorado must have been a shock for Romney.  Why did Colorado vote Santorum? I think it may have had quite a bit to do with a recent poll showing that Santorum CAN in fact beat Obama in the general election. I don't know that Santorum spent much time in Colorado but I know he impresses the crowds who attend his meetings with his sincerity and steadiness. It may also have to do with Romney's slip ups and gaffes, though that's hard to say for sure. The Politico has up an elaborate analysis of Santorum's success yesterday and what it might mean for the future.  What it will really mean is anyone's guess because this entire primary process has been anything but predictable! If I were a Democrat, this would make me nervous. If this entire primary season is unpredictable, what might that mean for the general election? A clean sweep? Not likely, but stranger things have happened already. The GOP can hardly lose if they remain focused on Obama's failed policies and the bad economy. Media-spin to the contrary regardless.

Here are the delegate counts for each candidate thus far. Romney's ahead of any other by a factor of three.
