Romney Takes Three More Primaries: Santorum's Last Stand?

Rick Santorum says the GOP primary is only at "halftime," but a three-state sweep in Tuesday's primary placed the first half firmly in Mitt Romney's palm. Romney took Wisconson, Maryland, and Washington D.C. this week, giving him a total of 655 delegates to Santorum's 278. Someone will need to secure 1,144 to win the nomination, and there are 1,166 remaining. The Washington Post calls it "the end of the end."

Like Newt Gingrich before him, Rick Santorum remains optimistic despite the odds, and says he will soldier on. Romney continues to focus on Obama instead of his primary opponents. According to The Daily Caller, "Voters leaving Republican polling places in Maryland and Wisconsin showed an electorate more concerned with a candidate’s ability to ability to defeat Obama than with the strength of his conservatism, his moral character or his stand on the issues." Do you think Romney's recent wins mark the end for Santorum?

    Santorum has and had no chance to start with he simply don't fit the presidential profile as Sarah Palin didn't he is there to excite the obtuse and the religiously racists just like David Duke did in the past I believe Mittens will take a fire-breath Hillery like woman or maybe Neut but not Ricki the American Taliban unless he wants to loose ALL of the moderate women...

    No connection to the Muslim extremists, that would be like trying to connect the negative poles of two different magnets they repel each other but non the less they are the same poles of different magnets they are all repulsive to me :-) Rick Santorum  Taliban

    Mitt needs to learn from McCain and not pick a social conservative. They'll be in the polls voting against Obama and for a fiscal conservative anyway... nominating a social conservative as VP only chases away Independents and moderates and sends them voting for Obama again. Mitt should find a social moderate, fiscal conservative, and either a minority, woman, or someone from the south.

    Anyone know any bright and hard working women minorities in Texas that are fiscally but not socially conservative? ;-)

    Shoot, meant to vote yes. Damn dyslexia.

    Santorum himself has said he needs to win Pennsylvania. I'm not sure if that means he'll quit if he doesn't or not.

    Either way, he's a long shot.

    Fine by me. I don't like him at all. I'll hold my nose and vote for Romney. But, if Santorum were to get the nod, I'd vote Libertarian.

    DON'T BET ON IT. RUMOR HAS IT THAT HE WANTS TO BE VP. THE WAY HE IS GOING HE WILL NOT GET TO BE DOG CATCHER.

    That's certainly a possibility. Not thrilled with that possibility.

    He would annihilate Biden in a debate, but I doubt it numbers too low.
    He would definitely be on the attack team.

    I think so. Even though Romney was my last choice out of the four, I'll gladly vote for him to replace Obama.

    Predictable.

    What remains to be seen is who will get the VP nomination. Santorum is in a good place to take it. Uniting the bases and such.

    They are desperate, because they know the expected 'easy win' against Obama was lost during this insanity.

    He absolutely is not in a good position with all the things he has said about Romney. He is a sore loser and we don't need him.

    Been around politics much?

    Would not be the first, nor last, time mudslinging led to one candidate taking VP to the other.

    All a game, and the party is even bigger than the candidate.

    And VPs don't need it.

    Once in office, you hardly hear from them.
