Front-runners Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are in a virtual tie with the former Massachusetts governor up by just two points as the Michigan Republican Primary race comes down to the wire.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters in Michigan, taken Sunday night, finds Romney will 38% support to Santorums 36%. Texas Congressman Ron Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich remain far behind with 11% and 10% of the vote respectively. One percent (1%) likes another candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

“Newt is not competing in Michigan. Realistically, hell only get back in the game if Santorum implodes.” - Absolutely right. There will never be a two man race between Newt and Rick and if there were Rick would win because of the social vote. If you are a Michigander for Newt you need to either vote for Newt or even Romney. Newt needs Santorum to get beaten and fade out. This race has always been and will always be Romney vs the not-Romney. Santorum is the current not-romney. If Newt wants a shot at Romney, Santorum has to go. I like Newt and that’s my hope. Whether you agree or not the logic is sound. If you are a Santorum guy you need to be doing everything you can not to knock out Mitt but to knock out Newt. The not-Romney is the majority, whoever stands there last wins.
“This race has always been and will always be Romney vs the not-Romney. Santorum is the current not-romney. If Newt wants a shot at Romney, Santorum has to go.”
Bingo! Santorum was even campaigning in Georgia a few weeks ago. His aim is clearly to drive Newt out of the race.
THERE IS STILL TIME TO DRIVE ROMNEY OUT OF THIS RACE. IF HE LOSES MI, HE’S TOAST. CALL, E-MAIL, FACEBOOK OR TWEET EVERYBODY YOU KNOW IN MI & TELL THEM TO VOTE AGAINST RINO-ROM & DRIVE HIM FROM THIS RACE. DO AMERICA A FAVOR MICHIGAN; VOTE SANTORUM.
I was thinking more along the lines of if Santorum wins Michigan, Romney is done.
If Romney loses Michigan, I wouldn’t say he’s “done” but he will no doubt be badly wounded going forward. Bear in mind he still has the staunch backing of the GOP establishment and lots of cash to burn.
If Romney wins the nomination, we all lose.
Your Post #35 is spot on.
If Romney loses Michigan, he begins to crumble.
Exactly! We can do this!!
No, I didn’t hear him say that. But I can’t help thinking that’s what he’s thinking. It would make sense for him to strategize that.
You get it, rif. Thanks.
AMEN! just listened to Santorum’s speach and almost threw up on my keyboard. Now Mitt is on and they are thanking Christie, Trump, Kid Rock, McCain and Brewer. It is absolutely disgusting.
All I can say is hang tough Newt and God help the USA
Amen to that.
