Day 1173 – The Two Man Race | January 21, 2012

If delegates were all that mattered, Romney and Gingrich would be the front-runners. It’s not, but those two are the front-runners. My earlier predictions of a Romney, a not Romney and a Tea Party candidate may yet be accurate. Romney is Romney. Surprisingly, Ron Paul appears to be the Tea Party candidate and Gingrich is now the not Romney. That means Rick Santorum is out of luck.

Not only did Newt Gingrich win a primary, he won the biggest primary. He is the first to win a primary with more than 40% of the vote, no doubt due to the endorsement by Rick Perry. Santorum won Iowa with barely 25%. Mitt Romney got just under 40% in New Hampshire, running as a sort of native son.

This needs to happen. Even though I think Romney is the one who can bring the most money to a general election to beat Obama, Gingrich is also a credible candidate. Romney has to be able to beat Gingrich to be a real challenge to Obama. It’s Apollo vs Rocky now. The question is, will this be Rocky 1 or Rocky 2?

  1. With a 13+ percentage point win, it was less of a vicory and more of a rout. Having seen Newt clean the MSM’s clock–incluing indicting their pro-obama partiality–and observing the crowd’s enthusiasm, I know why he won SC. He’s giving vent to the four years of outrage smoldering within us patriots.

    Now let’s hope the Repubs get it. Conservative voters don’t want to see Repub hopefuls bashing each oher. They want to see Repub hopefuls bashing obama, his anti-America entourage, and the entire leftist cabal supporting him– the msm in particular.

    Now stop pushing and shoving each otherm and go
    get ’em, boys.

  2. I get your point now about the ex-wife’s diatribe being a help rather than a hindrance.

  3. Sarah’s nice “don’t let the GOP pick your candidate, vote for Newt” push was helpful too. 😀

    Sort of feel sorry for the GOP “rising stars” who got behind Mitt – Halley, McDonnell and Christie – just couldn’t give him the bounce-bounce of the Todd and Sarah fist bump.

    Interesting primary season indeed.
