The Campaign Slogs On

Mar 23 2012 @ 11:21am

Looks like Louisiana will be a rout:

Rick Santorum is headed for a commanding win in Louisiana on Saturday. We find him with 42% to 28% for Mitt Romney, 18% for Newt Gingrich, 8% for Ron Paul, and 2% for Buddy Roemer. 

Blumenthal downplays Santorum's likely win:

Santorum may be headed toward a big popular vote win in Louisiana on Saturday, but even a huge margin of victory will do little to help Santorum gain ground in the all-important contest for Republican convention delegates.

More bad news for Santorum: the media has begun tuning out the primaries:

Television, in short, has pretty much decided the race is over, Mitt Romney has won, the thing is boring everyone to death, and it’s time, at least for now, to move on. The campaign is occupying less front-page real estate in the major papers as well.

Harry Enten recalculates how long it will take for Romney to wrap things up.
