Romney Doing The Impossible

Republican nominees come from either Iowa or New Hampshire, but up to this point not one has won both of the vital early states, mainly due to the wide gap between ideology and religion between them, but that might change if the polling in the Granite State holds, because Romney is on the verge of the impossible.

Most political whizkids are overlooking the historical and political implications of someone winning both states, especially the impact on South Carolina. There will be no two candidates vying for votes, just one man who won both states and four, or five two-time losers at that point - with Santorum the exception.

With his victory on Tuesday and his expected one next week, Romney is in the best position to win, historically and politically speaking, then any other candidate seeking the GOP nomination in years. South Carolina will ultimately decide whether this race is decided quickly or drags on, but their folk have to be considering the near impossible and rare nature of Romney's one-two punch.

What say you?


  1. I hope I'm wrong but I say this guarantees Obama's reelection. In November Republicans will stay home for lack of enthusiasm for Romney. Democrats however will rediscover their ole time religion for Obama and vote.

    Like I said, I hope I'm wrong.

  2. I agree that too many are dismissing what Romney accomplished by winning Iowa. Wishful thinking by the Anti Romney crowd.
