Rick Santorum wins everything, including the Missouri primary and both the Colorado and Minnesota caucuses, in a landslide. Almost all the results are in, and the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania has emerged victorious over his three Republican rivals. Might it have something to do with his robustly anti-illegal alien platform, as well as his staunch opposition to monstrosities like the visa lottery? While it’s simplistic to boil his victories down to this issue alone, I do think that Santorum’s success in these three states, as well as frontrunner Mitt Romney’s decisive victory in Florida, put to rest the notion that open borders demagoguery is the path to electoral success. But don’t take my word for it, just ask cellar-dweller Newt Gingrich how effective the endorsement by Somos Republicanos was in his quest to regain national relevancy as a Republican presidential candidate. 

Turns out, not very.
