Keeps looking more likely.
Let’s say Thompson or Huckabee takes South Carolina and Rudy takes Florida. Suddenly you have a situation on Feb. 5 where Rudy can win the winner take all states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut; Thompson or Huckabee takes the South; Romney wins Massachusetts and Utah; McCain wins Arizona and the rest of the states get divided up.
Perhaps, at this point, Romney is hoping for a brokered convention. The more cerebral, Beltway logic that prompted the National Review to endorse him–that he is the best one to preserve the Reagan coalition–may resonate more among delegates to the convention than among actual voters.
