Over at Plum Line, I ask: what if Santorum manages to stay very popular...but his campaign continues to be a shoestring operation. Could he wind up winning the bulk of the primaries and caucuses and still fall farther and farther behind on the delegate count?
It's most just political junkie daydreaming, but it technically could happen. In fact, I think it's still more likely than a real deadlocked convention.
By the way, Romney is now up to 9 of the 29 Republican Governors, and Santorum is still...crickets. Bizarre, really. Two Members of the House, zero Senators, no Governors, after winning Iowa, Colorado, Minnesota, and a tick ahead of Romney in national polling. He does have the evangelicals, though. Very, very odd, it seems to me, that he can't get any politicians to jump on his bandwagon.
