    Default Primaries 2/7

    Santorum, a big winner in Mo. Then Rmoney followed by Dr Paul. No Newt option.

    Mn. Santorum, Dr Paul then Rmoney followed by Newt.

    Co. to early to be determine with 1% of the vote.

    Personally, I'd like to see the debate down to three candidates; Rmoney, Santorum and Dr Paul.

    Newt's campaign has been less than inspiring!

    Did anyone expect Santorum to trounce Romney this soundly ... in all 3 of these states? I don't recall any polls predicting this.

    I certainly didn't expect it. Small turnout of voters? He is the obvious choice of practicing Catholics and Evangelicals.

    I get the impression that NOBODY expected Santorum to sweep all three. Casts doubt on whether Romney's nomination is inevitable.

    Rmoney is going to have a tough battle to the nomination. The attacks on him have been relentless. If he can handle that pressure, I would expect him to get the nomination. Lets see what we get in a few weeks with a larger sample.

    The campaign between Rmoney and Newt has been brutal and has hurt them both. I would suspect that most are tired of watching all the mudslinging. Santorum is an alternative and he appeals to an audience that is motivated to vote.
