Why Romney may be too strong too stop

in Uncategorized by

Mitt Romney has all the momentum in the Republican presidential race and leads in the polls in the next two states to vote, South Carolina and Florida, writes Taegan Goddard.

Nate Silver: “I’m not quite ready to say that Mr. Romney has the nomination locked up, but when you evaluate the known unknowns, they don’t seem that threatening to him. We may be nearing the point where an unknown unknown — a heretofore unexposed scandal, a major gaffe, an ‘oops’ moment in a debate — is what it would take to trip Mr. Romney up.”

Amy Walter: “South Carolina voters like to be on the side of a winner, and at this point, Romney is the guy who looks like the winner. History is also on Romney’s side. Since 1980, no candidate who has lost Iowa and New Hampshire has gone on to win South Carolina.”
