"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

William Kristol: Evitable, After All

Looks like the latest poll by Fox reaffirms that the establishment candidate Mitt Romney is not inevitable.  In fact, word came out this afternoon that Santorum has raised $3M since winning the three states on Tuesday night.  That is huge for a candidate who knows how to do retail politics and doesn't rely on negative advertising to get his support.  Romney have a rude awakening as he tries to come after Santorum like he did Gingrich as most conservatives I have talked with are frankly fed up with Romney and his elitist tactics.  When he loses this time, we sincerely hope that he spends more time with his family and this will be the last campaign we heard from the "severely conservative" Romney.

This poll is great news and shows conservatives are alive and well and not willing to settle for a moderate to liberal candidate.  FINALLY is all I can say!
Evitable, After All

Here's another interesting finding from the Fox News poll showing Rick Santorum surging nationally: Unlike GOP elites and large elements of the punditocracy, Republican primary voters are not eager to close down the race. 
They're open to another candidate entering the field (by 49 percent – 48 percent); they don't think it's now time for one or more of the Republican candidates to drop out (by 54 percent to 41 percent); and, most strikingly, take a look at Question 41: 
Which best describes your view of the race for the Republican presidential nomination?
It's over—Mitt Romney's definitely going to win: 17%. 
It's not over—someone other than Romney could still win: 80%. 
GOP primary voters at least think it’s all still rather evitable
