Yesterday, Rick Santorum won convincingly in Minnesota and Missouri and edged Mitt Romney in Colorado.  Including his previous win in Iowa, these wins reveal that the guy connects well with Middle America.  Although Romney remains the prohibitive betting favorite, Santorum has replaced Gingrich as the anti-Romney.  According to betting site Intrade.com:

  • Mitt Romney – 78.0%
  • Rick Santorum – 12.5%
  • Newt Gingrich – 3.3%
  • Ron Paul – 2.4%

There will be pressure for Newt Gingrich to drop out and let Santorum going mano-a-mano with Romney, but Gingrich will almost certainly hold out until the ten South-heavy contests on Super Tuesday next month on March 6.
