Romney has really had this thing wrapped up for a while. Santorum has NO support among Republican office holders and professionals and Gingrich lights their hair on fire. So even if the Tea Party network keeps the primary fight alive...it's really dead men walking. - GWCIn Arizona and Michigan primaries, Romney stays on course - The Plum Line - The Washington Post: by Jonathan Bernstein
"The truth is that it doesn’t matter all that much at this point. Mostly, what’s at stake is whether the general election campaign starts a few weeks earlier or later. Republicans are nominating someone who will function, basically, as a generic Republican; Romney’s no master politician, but he doesn’t have any of the significant weaknesses of a Rick Santorum, not to mention the massive weaknesses of Newt Gingrich. And yet they’re going to nominate him only after pushing him on issue after issue to adopt a Tea Party platform. That’s good for conservatives if he wins, but on balance it will tend to make a November victory a bit harder for him. At any rate, enjoy these last few weeks of primary elections while they last, because we’re about to have a very, very long general election campaign."
