Gingrich and Santorum would have lost too.

The only GOP candidates who had a chance were, in hindsight, Perry and Cain. Perry imploded his own campaign by not being prepared for debates (and likely being on medication during one of them). Cain by mismanaged campaign and by a bunch of sexual allegations that may have been true and that he was not prepared to deal with by going on a friendly mainstream talk show like Sixty Minutes (because it was not of course friendly) with his wife (who was probably not feeling all that friendly after the news came out).

But Mitt Romney did a stellar job pulling defeat from the jaws of victory.

I think Gingrich could have won. I’m pretty sure some of the GOP primaries were stolen/hacked by people who wanted Romney to get the nomination because they knew they could beat Romney. Moreover, states should NOT have open primaries. The Dems flocked over to get Romney nominated; because Obama was unopposed, they had no need to vote in the Dem primaries.
