The 2012 GOP Missouri caucuses and primary

The specialty of the 2012 GOP Missouri primary was that it was a “beauty contest”. Not the primary of February 8 will determine which delegates will be sent to the Republican national convention, but the Missouri caucuses to be held on March 17, 2012.

Newt Gingrich missed the filing deadline and, therefore, his name were not on the Missouri primary ballots.

With 99% of all precincts reporting, in the 2012 GOP Missouri presidential primary with its non-binding result, the former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum finished first with an astonishing 55% of the vote, ahead of Mitt Romney with 25% and Ron Paul with 12%.

The game “anybody but Romney continues”. Dear Republicans, as written after the Iowa caucuses, it is self-delusional to believe that you can beat Obama with a candidate who lost his Senate seat in 2006, who has never held executive office, who advocates the teaching of intelligent design and who opposes contraception (Santorum: “It's not OK because it's a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be” (Peter Wehner in Commentary).

With Rick Santorum winning Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri, the GOP freak show remains open. The only half-way decent candidate, Mitt Romney, continues to struggle. Gingrich, Santorum and Paul will never become president. Romney would have a fair chance against Obama, especially if the labor market remains weak until November.
