Erickson said that Ohio will be the state to watch in tonight’s primaries, and that depending on who wins the race could be wrapped up tonight. Erickson believes that Romney will most likely be the nominee for the Republican party, but he said that Romney was a “deeply flawed” candidate and that trying to pick a nominee from the current field was like picking “the tallest midget to put up against Barack Obama.”

Erickson also said that the winner of the election might not depend on the candidate, but on the economy. He said that the Republicans built their entire campaign on the state of the economy, and that the state of the economy during election season would have a huge impact.

“If the economy goes downhill, the Republican’s probably going to win, regardless of who it is. If the economy really starts to improve, and consumer confidence is on the rebound so it may happen, no Republican is going to win against Barack Obama.
