What you describe is not impossible, just very very improbable considering the whole context of the nominations IMO.
Ikki, I have no other way to put it, itís just preposterous to think that election rigging is the reason for Santorumís surge. Who is rigging the election for him? It will have to be a massive conspiracy that needs the involvement of the Republican Establishment to succeed. Considering the establishment candidate is Romney, how is this being pulled off? Why is Romney, with his strong connections and deep pockets, not aware of this supposed rigging? Come on mate, thatís just way out there.
