Santorum's going to have to win California to win the nomination.

Just ran the CNN calculator - at this point, I honestly think Santorum would have to win almost every May and June contest, and could definitely finish strong in April (A comfortable Pennsylvania win, staying competitive with Romney elsewhere and possibly a win in Delaware). California is a state I think Santorum will need to win in order to keep Romney from getting enough delegates. I don't think there's any realistic way that Santorum claims enough delegates - he's either convention or bust at this point.

Today, FOX said he'd have to win 80% of the delegates from here out to win the nomination.  If you assume Gingrich's delegates go to him, it ends up being a bit less than 80%, but it's not going to happen.

He's not trying to get the magic number. He's trying to prevent Romney from getting there. I don't know why people can't see that.

People do see that, but, let's be honest, preventing Romney from getting the magic number isn't gonna happen either.

A narrow win in California for Santorum may still mean Romney wins the majority of delegates there.  Only 10 delegates are awarded WTA on a statewide basis, the rest are by CD.  Romney is quite likely to pick up a lot of more Democratic districts with (relatively) few votes.  While Santorum winning some weird Democratic districts here or there can't be ruled out (see Detroit), he's still going to need to win big to get a big delegate windfall here.

And if California is a wash, Santorum needs to win New Jersey.

Rick needing to win CA to stop Romney is just another way of saying that Rick is already toast. Rick needs to find another path to the nomination that does not run through California, because that to Rick is like the Darian Gap in Panama that kept the Inca and Aztec cultures hermetically sealed from each other; the place is just impassible for him, with the the two Mastiff's at the gate both looking very hostile - the Torie mastiff smoking a joint savoring disordered pornography, and the Angel Maroni LDS mastiff on the other side barking out "use Rick up."
