    underdog santorum wins the iowa tommorrow, in order to have a chance at the nomination, he would have to clear the field of all anti-romney candidates except maybe ron paul. Personally im getting a little sick of santorum, when the guy talks he irritates me with his insane politics

      I can't say Ricky Boy irritates me more than the others, they all grate on my nerves.

      Clearing the field really is Santorum's only hope, after the prerequisite of winning Iowa.  In that vein, I can see Perry dropping out fast, he was always a conventional candidate who isn't in it for attention and won't stay if no path to the actual nomination is paved.  But Bachmann, Newt, and Paul all want attention and are less likely to drop out quickly.  Then again, Newt and Bachmann might be so badly diminished that Santorum doesn't need them to actually drop out, their polling might tank into Buddy Roemer/Gary Johnson territory in any case.  Paul will continue sucking some oxygen, but his base is unique and not necessarily likely to favor Santorum over Romney were Paul not running.

      But Romney is likely to beat any of these clowns one-on-one as enough wingnut voters who like these wingnut candidates nevertheless see the folly of selecxting them as November torch-bearers.
