Michigan Leaning Towards Santorum? What?!?

As Michiganders search for the "right" GOP contender to face-off against President Barack Obama this coming November... home grown son, Mitt Romney, is facing an uphill battle. Even with the endorsement of newly elected Republican Governor Rick Snyder, Mitt Romney's support in his home state is mediocre––to say the least. 

Having been on-the-ground myself for the past few days, touring different cities throughout the Southwest Michigan region... I have not seen the level of enthusiasm for Romney that generally surrounds that of a front-runner.  And... with the state's primary election approximately a week away, on February 28th, a fever pitch of support for Romney's JUST.NOT.THERE!

With all the media hype that Romney is the only Republican to beat Obama is proving to be exactly what it is: a lame-stream-media-LIE.  

If I were to make a prediction, I would say the probability of Senator Rick Santorum winning all the marbles in the Michigan contest is extremely high.  And... that outcome would send shock waves to the GOP establishment and would put a Romney nomination in serious doubt.  (Remember, if Vice President Al Gore had won his home state of Tennessee in 2000, US history would have been a lot different).

It's safe to say that it will be almost impossible for Mitt Romney to beat Obama if he doesn't beat Santorum in his own house next Tuesday.  http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/02/16/if-santorum-wins-michigan-all-bets-are-off-for-romney/
  
No... the way I see it, this GOP primary is wide-open.  Look out for Gingrich, Paul, and who knows... even Sarah Palin to overtake Romney by the time the big dance happens in Tampa this summer.  Right now, it's anybody's ball game.  

I'll be in the Wolverine State through Thursday... and will keep you posted via this blog.
