In this week’s issue of TIME magazine (available to subscribers here), Mark Halperin looks down the road to Michigan — and November — for Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, and Obama.

Halperin: “Some old-school GOPers say that if economic gains make a November win seem elusive, they might prefer to set down an ideological marker with a Goldwater-style conservative like Santorum . . . Democrats counting electoral votes see Santorum’s strength in critical Midwestern battleground states . . . Still, the Obama-Biden team has ample opposition research on Santorum (including video) and doesn’t see the ex-Pennsylvania Senator appealing any more than Romney to such key groups as Hispanic voters . . .”
