Transcript for Super Tuesday: Romney's Battle Ahead
Let's get more on this now. From ABC analyst Matthew Dowd -- -- right here in Las Vegas democratic political strategist GMA political contributor James Carville thanks to both -- are common in and -- let me Begin. -- -- John talked about this insurmountable delegate lead. That Mitt Romney has right now let's look at last 91 -- -- -- thirteen delegates. To Rick santorum's 84. Huge huge advantage -- you look overall he's got well more than twice as many. I delegates as Santorum right now they will make the case there's no way Santorum can catch it. -- they're gonna make that -- argument all day long you're probably send up twenty excel spreadsheets saying there's no way that Rick Santorum can do this but did two things happened that night one. Mitt Romney won the math. But I think he lost a big part of his -- Joseph I think he thought he was coming into this thing was gonna Begin to unify the party at the end of the night having -- give a big speech. Let's just say we're now moving forward against Barack Obama he cannot do that -- -- he's got a bad slog ahead for him that Rick Santorum. Could easily -- five primaries or caucuses in the next two weeks and still my casually James currently using give advice to Democrats -- take that hat off for a second guessing the vice. To Mitt Romney does he handle this right now. We are right now he's in a tough thing and I think that there's -- there's. The thing that is said is made the most estimated some top cyclist said Bob Barbara Bush lute who said that to -- -- campaign she's ever seen. -- suspected mrs. bush is seen a lot of campaign. Were eight Romney can't even get on the ballot in in Virginia and parts of Ohio -- and not can't talk to listen to people on the run against -- intent or. Syndrome could even get on -- candidate and ballot in these areas. And in Gingrich couldn't get over ballot in Virginia and Albright of course Ron as the winning everything excel spreadsheets and he's gonna put -- -- -- but I think gave Matthew would agree he he's he's not running home he's looked at Holloman and this country. If you look at the -- you see a very very unimpressive justices Bennett a terrible cycle for -- -- And I did this to me reminds us have been more sequels in this from the Halloween movies and just like Jason this keeps coming back every time Mitt Romney thinks he's got it over its -- put it away there comes Jason. Out of the woods and he's coming on him again. I think this is -- here's the difference Jason can't get the nomination. Now -- -- Santorum and Newt Gingrich -- -- where they are right now but what they can do is prevent Mitt Romney by the end of this process from getting the total number of delegates he can win and what their hope is by doing it by throwing a -- -- box in front. Winning a bunch of states keeping him from that number is they can go show how weak he is going in the convention basically turned the -- -- You cannot nominate and James Democrats look at that the president gets that this is campaign looks at this and says oh boy keeping bill. Solution to some extent doesn't matter if they get a -- -- not so -- run against Santorum and Gingrich he's running against 1144. In running to get to that number priority without any different temperament has very very important point. And I think most most people believe that he can't get to -- just about Tyco he will get this is gonna take an awfully long time. And and and -- how does -- handle it -- Does he go after Rick Santorum at this point that's -- worked from in the past for the beating his opponents down. Was yet to somehow get bigger and try to unify the party. I think all of us would agree you've got to get bakeries got a -- change I don't think they well I think what they're gonna do is convince themselves that this is a tactical battle that they're gonna keep doing keep going through the -- doing it as Mitt Romney said his own speech day by day by day. I don't think they're gonna change strategy and I think there. -- now they know this is going through June -- that it is keep doing it yard by yard by yard. Okay thank you both very much and he had a whole lot more on the president's race -- going to Good Morning America dot com. Got so what's your bottom line George. I do think Mitt -- gonna get the nomination I think it's gonna take an awful long time right up until June but the more Rick Santorum wins I think this is setting -- the possibility. We're Rick santorum's -- make that claim. You have to put me on the ticket that running if you want this and -- all right.
