Santorum Sees Romney Victory
by

I just got off the phone with Rick Santorum. He thinks Romney will win tomorrow. 

“As dispassionate as I think I can be, I just think it’s such a different election than it was four years ago,” he said. “Our base is clearly more energized now than it was four years ago. Romney in the last month clearly has done a good job making people more comfortable that he’s more than up to the job of president. I keep going back to the fundamentals: The fundamentals of his campaign are really good. I don’t see any reason why Romney won’t win.”

Santorum said he thinks the polls are “way off” because they are far over-sampling Democrats. In recent days, Santorum has been doing a host of “meet and greets” in Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, and Virginia (ones scheduled in his home state of Pennsylvania were canceled because they were set for the day Hurricane Sandy hit), and of course is in frequent touch with lots of people in PA.

“What I see and feel on the ground,” he said, “is enthusiasm. We’re much, much better off than we were four years ago. I think we can make the difference.”

As for Pennsylvania, here’s his take:

“If I’m right and this really is a race where the poll numbers are a little skewed, I think he [Romney] wins Pennsylvania. Unlike other races in recent times, [this is not a mirage]. Romney is competitive because he is doing something George Bush could never do, which is appeal more to the Philly suburbs. I think he can win Bucks County, for instance, and he’s doing better in all of the Philly suburbs than [Republican presidential candidates] have done in years. So if he keeps doing that, and then energizes the western parts of the state, I  really think he can win. Unlike in Ohio, 97 percent of Pennsylvanians haven’t voted yet, so there really is an opportunity here.”
