Krauthammer: Santorum Has 1 In 50 Chance; Ron Paul Has Zero Chance

"I will tell you that in Win, Place and Show, everybody knows, Romney, Santorum, and Ron Paul. And I'm not sure it'll matter either way. Because Santorum has a 1 in 50 chance of winning the nomination. Paul has zero chance," Charles Krauthammer said on FOX News' "O'Reilly Factor" when asked for his prediction.

"It would mean that Santorum would become the major sparring partner for Romney in the later states. The real issue is Newt and Perry. Do they finish fourth or fifth and do they finish near the top three or not because that will determine. Iowa never appoints. It winnows. And this will be a winnowing process," Krauthammer said.

"I think as Brit Hume said the reason he could be the subject of literally hours of negative attacks is because he had hours of negative baggage in his history. Unlike any other candidate apostasies wall-to-wall that were easy to highlight and cite and that was the reason why there was no way to fight back," Krauthammer said when asked why Newt didn't fight back against attacks hard enough.

"[Newt] and Perry have one chance to do it and it's tomorrow night," Krauthammer concluded.
