Scarborough: Why can’t Rick Santorum beat Obama?

Does the Manhattan media elite have a “complete blind spot” when it comes to the issues social conservatives hold dear? Will Rick Santorum’s stance on social issues put him in better stead with the country than the media thinks?

Joe Scarborough [to Donny Deutsch]: “You said Rick Santorum can’t beat Obama. Tell me, why can’t Rick Santorum beat Barack Obama? Maybe not in Manhattan.”

Donny Deutsch: “Not in Manhattan, but I think in a few of the key swing states I can’t see him taking Florida…”

Scarborough: If Santorum moves forward, I think people in the media are going to have to be very careful to not let their own blind spots on social policy get in the way of their analysis of what Republican can win. [Manhattan media people] have a complete blind spot when it comes to social policy and the way people in Middle America think.”
