Few people think Rick Santorum has a chance of winning the Wisconsin primary Tuesday, including Santorum, who will be in Pennsylvania election night. Not only is Santorum admitting he can't win Wisconsin, he's also admitting he won't win much for a whole month. "The map in May looks very, very good for us," Santorum said on Fox News on the very first day of April.
In February, Santorum had a double-digit lead over Romney in Wisconsin polls. The Midwest was where he was strongest, but recently he's been losing there, in Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois. It shows how far he's fallen that Monday he faced headlines like "Santorum Battles Perceptions That Race Is Over" (The Wall Street Journal) and "Romney Sees Wisconsin Win to Knock Santorum Out of Race" (Bloomberg) and "Santorum vows to stay in race" (The Washington Post). Santorum told reporters at a campaign stop Sunday that this only showed how scared Romney's supporters are. "A lot of people must be really concerned we’re going to do really well on Tuesday, so I’m encouraged by all of this," Santorum said, according to Politico's Juana Summers. "I think it shows that the establishment is getting nervous and we must be doing well and connecting with folks."
