Scarborough thinks so:

I've heard for the past couple hours that these elections in 2010 are going to actually make the candidate more conservative in 2012.  It's counter-intuitive: the opposite is true... Gingrich in '94, gives us Bob Dole in '96. There is always this back-and-forth.

He's betting on Romney.
