Candidates gear up for Michigan fight and Super Tuesday

With blue-collar Michigan the next stop for each battle bus, candidates have been simultaneously preparing themselves for Super Tuesday which happens a week after they throw-down in Wolverine country.

Expect Santorum to lay down the gauntlet in Michigan, as he tries to identify himself as a fellow blue-collar worker from Pennsylvania, and for Arizona to fall in the Romney column given it's sizable Mormon population. There will be 59 delegates at stake between Arizona and Michigan whilst all states voting on Super Tuesday will allocate their delegates proportionately, meaning it's not necessarily about winning each state but doing as well as you can. Ahhhh, isn't that nice!
