Is Christie’s Boy In Trouble?
Mitt Romney came out of Iowa the declared winner. But a great amount of time later the news came out that the 8 vote plurality in the Iowa caucuses may have been in error, and that Rick Santorum may have actually won. That’s the kind of misfortune that would sink most candidates out of the gate. Not Santorum. Now, with no money, he’s suddenly pulled even with Romney and has more momentum on his side after the hat trick of Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri. Here comes Michigan on February 28th, where some say Santorum should spend every penny he has, because if Romney can’t win in as close to home turf as he can get in Michigan, he’s sunk.
Even if Romney can pull it off on the 28th, how’s he going to take down an incumbent president who’s ahead of him in the polls when he can’t even stop the resurrection of Rick Santorum? Does this all point to a GOP in disarray and four more years of Obama? As they say, stay tuned.
