According to the Ron Paul camp, the steam that surged Rick Santorum to the top tier in recent days is staggering and the former Pennsylvania senator will be unable to show any success continuing out of Iowa. Instead, rather, the Republican Party will be left with only two choices in the months leading up to the GOP National Convention: Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney has remained a frontrunner since he first threw his hat in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination. Only in recent weeks has an explosive campaign from Santorum’s camp managed to help the senator soar to the top-tier. With poor polling in the months prior and a well of funding now drying up, however, Santorum’s esteem among the GOP can expect to soon shrivel.

While Romney’s popularity has plateaued through his campaign and has secured him the title of frontrunner, Santorum’s rise in the polls has only occurred in recent weeks and had so far followed the same cycle that previously propelled Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich to the top of the polls.
