Romney's only winning liberal states which would have voted for Obama anyway.

I mean fug, is this what the once proud party has been reduced to? Rick fuging Santorum??

cant wait for the center-right corporatist vs. the theocrat in the general election

jk santorum still doesn't stand a chance. obama-santorum would be one of the most lopsided elections in history. low turnout has always been the friend of the republican party, so what better way to piss that away this year than by nominating the misogynistic theocrat who wants to outlaw abortion, contraception, pornography, etc

This is starting to look like it'll be a brokered convention.

so what do republicans stand to gain by "not even trying"

also by the logic of "this field of potential candidates fuging sucks therefore they must not be trying," the republicans haven't tried in decades

e: i mean seriously, mccain? GWB? dole? GHWB? maybe? reagan? (lol nope) when exactly is the last time that the republican party tried?

But he went home to see his sick daughter!

Obama would have killed his daughter by abortion when she became too much of a burden.

Looking at the next four primaries, Romney will likely win Arizona and Santorum will win Michigan. That still puts Romney in the lead going in to Super Tuesday.

In the end, I doubt the primary battle will hurt the republicans anymore than it did the Democrats in 1992 or 2008. Not saying Romney will win, he probably wont.

um the 08 democratic primary race and the 12 republican primary race aren't really similar at all, other than the fact that they are both primaries

though i look forward to you attempting to explain that statement

It may be worth noting that every single state Romney has won so far went to Obama in '08.

He's winning the liberal states and losing the conservative ones big. That's gonna make for a fun election (for non-republicans).

honestly this just goes to show that the opinion some non-republicans have that the republican party is run by a bunch of ultra religious people is pretty much still spot on.

it's too bad, but this year it seemed like there'd be trouble for Republicans finding someone "good" to run anyway. This one isn't over yet, but I think we'll see something better next cycle.

The fact that Santorum is winning Michigan is sad for Romney considering his dad was a very popular Governor there. Romney should be winning easy there.

I'm beginning to think Santorum might actually win the nomination. His poll numbers against Obama aren't awful right now, but I have a feeling if he were to win the nomination he would lose badly in November. Much worse than the polls indicate at the moment. Low turnout + independents voting for Obama by large margins due to Santorum's ultra-conservative social views + a fairly strong libertarian candidate in Gary Johnson = Obama landslide.

Obama might even have a shot at Texas if Santorum wins the nomination.

GOP's nightmare/worst case/bottom-falls-out scenario with Santorum as the nominee and the economy continuing to improve?

Geez, who made that map? Texas going blue? Can't see any circumstance where that happens. Don't see much of a chance for NC and Georgia going for Obama. HE barely won NC last time, and had much more favorable ratings. But I do agree that overall, things are looking good for Obama right now. Regardless of who wins the nomination. Romney might have a slight chance, but none of the others have much of a shot at all.
