Can Rick Santorum Keep Up The Momentum?

With his near win in Iowa, Rick Santorum is on the rise as he hits the campaign trail in the next primary state.  New Hampshire.

The granite is known for helping propel candidates into winning the nomination, especially if the candidate wins in Iowa.  And with Mitt Romney‘s advantage of having been campaigning in New Hampshire for the past four years, it will be that much harder for the other candidates, including Rick.

Rick Santorum is going to be running the same ground campaign in New Hampshire that he ran in Iowa.  Which showed to be very successful for him.  His traditional campaign has been working well so far…shaking hands helps to win votes.

One thing about New Hampshire, is that they don’t pay attention to what happens in Iowa.  So candidates have to work that much harder to prove themselves.

With the loss of Michele Bachmann, her supporters are most likely to back Santorum.  Which will greatly help him in the states after the Granite State.

Rick Santorum will be able to keep some of his momentum, but he has to keep high in the polls, and try to edge Romney out.  What will help him going on, is that Newt Gingrich is angry after the results in Iowa.  And hat is worse for Romney is that Gingrich’s anger has a laser-like focus.

Something else that will continue to help Santorum is that Gingrich is defending and congratulating him on running on a positive campaign, while others did not (Romney and Paul).  So Rick has found a friend in Newt, who worked with him in the past when Rick was a freshman in Congress.

So we have Michele’s departure that will help Rick Santorum going ahead in the primary’s.  And Newt Gingrich’s encouragement.

The next thing that would greatly help Rick Santorum, are the endorsements that still are being waited on.  From people like Sarah Palin, Herman Cain and now Michele Bachmann.  Some people are even waiting for Donald Trumps endorsement, if it ever comes.

So in the weeks to come, I think that Rick Santorum will stay on the map.  He doesn’t have anywhere to go as Newt Gingrich continues to lose support.

I think we have a very interesting primary still ahead.
