    Will Rick Santorum be able to take Michigan and Arizona as he he told ABC he would?

    Santorum suggested to ABC's "This Week"  that a strong showing in Michigan & Arizona would make the presidential contest "a two-man race," dismissing current rivals Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul. Furthermore, Santorum said Sunday he could do "exceptionally well" in Michigan, where Romney's father served as governor and where Mitt grew up. What say you?

    Michigan, probably not since the Romney name still carries weight in Michigan, and Michigan is a more moderate northern state.  Arizona, is a definite possibility with its proximity to Utah and more conservative western style Republican base.

    I do not think Santorum should be counted out anywhere.  His popularity is growing and the latest polls show he is in a dead tie with Romney.  His popularity and the wins he has had has brought him the exposure he needed.  Just because the Romney name has some history in Michigan does not mean he is going to be the clear winner.  It is always up to the voters to choose who they feel is the right candidate.

    The media seems to always inject psychology into political races and it sometimes backfires.  If Romney wins it will be the voters who decide not the media.  If Santorum wins in either or both states it will boost him as a contender for the nomination more than it has to date.
