He is likely to win both Minnesota and Missouri and perhaps come in 2nd in Colorado today.
These are not big prizes but would certainly help him claim some legitimacy as the conservative "anti-Mitt".
At this point both Santorum and Gingrich are in a standoff waiting for the other one to drop out. I dislike them both, but Santorum polls much more positively than Newt among Republicans (in terms of likeability at least, if not electability). I do think Santorum has a chance to outlast Newt, but he absolutely needs Newt to drop out before the big southern states if he wants any chance at all of beating Romney.
