Westminster College on KSL
For the primary vote in Arizona, there's one thing missing--the candidates. Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum mostly bypassed Arizona for the critical battle ground state of Michigan. Bob Seltzer from Westminster College, who is a top aide to several democratic U.S. senators, says this roller coaster race continues to surprise.
The realistic view which says nobody knows this race has gone up and down, back and forth, and there could be twists and turns still to come
In Arizona, Romney should be unstoppable thanks to a 15 percent edge in the latest polls, a solid get out the vote organization, plus strong backing from the LDS community, which makes up about 6 percent of Arizona’s population.
Frankly, Arizona, I think, when you look at what Romney’s done on the immigration issue, throw in the LDS advantage that he has there, it's a tough state to beat Romney in.
A week from now the candidates duke it out for the big prize--the ten-state Super Tuesday. Republican governors worry a prolonged fight could hurt the party's chances in November.
Do you think they should tone it down a little bit? would that be the advice you'd give to governor Romney?
Maybe a little late for that.
