6:10 pm
republicans. but the polls here in michigan at least suggest he will have a difficult time doing it. romney chartered a jet from michigan to florida for the daytona 500 where a trackside man of the people photo opportunity awaited the candidate with four cars of his own. his enthusiasm was not diminished by rain that postpone odd the race or the stock car emblazoned with the name of his rival. after all, romney had earlier won the backing of governor jan brewer of arizona where romney appears headed for a clear-cut victory in two days. >> that he has that probusiness background and he has that political history that i think that he would serve america the best of all the candidates. >> reporter: but his probusiness background has also greatly enriched romney with a fortune estimated at $250 million. critics say he lacks a common touch because of that wealth. a complaint he addressed during an interview. >> i can't be perfect.
6:11 pm
i am just am who i am. if people think there's something wrong with being successful in america, than they better vote for the other guy. >> reporter: that other guy would be rick santorum. >> we don't need someone to better manage washington, we need a fundamental change in washington that gets power back to the people in this country. >> reporter: polls show santorum with his emphasis on reviving manufacturing in this country could win tuesday's other race, the one here in michigan, where romney was born and raised. >> here we are being badly outspent again, by his super pac and his big dollar friends. and we're hanging in there, holding our own. >> reporter: the consequences of a loss in michigan would be awful for romney. piercing the idea that his nomination is inevitable, and possibly setting off an 11th hour search for an alternative acceptable to the party establishment. but santorum with his repeated rhetorical detours into sensitive social issues does not necessarily fit that bill.
6:12 pm
now the stakes are unquestionably high and new jersey governor chris chris-year one of romney's more prominent national backers told bob schieffer on face the nation today that if romney loses michigan a brokered conventions, this august in tampa is a possibility. jeff? >> jeff: dean reynolds, thank you. cbs news political director john dickerson is also in traverse city tonight. john, good evening to you. what's your sense on the ground now? >> it feels very close here, jeff. coming in to this vote mitt romney has some of the momentum after that last debate where rick santorum didn't do so well. when you talk to voters at his rallies they say they like mitt romney because they think can beat barack obama, can turn around the economy. but when you go to a santorum rally they rch more enthusiastic. voters are responding to santorum when he talks on stage and draws that clear contrast between his policies and barack obamas. so the enthusiasm feels like it's with santorum, though romney has the advantage in
6:13 pm
money, organization and ties to the state. >> jeff: john, what happens to mitt romney if he loses mitch itch-- michigan? >> it would be a near fatal blow. his campaign would be in critical condition. because he has so many advantages in michigan. he has money, his family lived here, he grew up here. he has been playing on all of those ties. so if he lost, when you talk to republican strategists they say there would be this search for somebody because they're worried that rick santorum is too conservative to win in a general election. but who would they go looking for, jeb bush the former governor of florida or indiana's governor mitch daniels have been talked about but those men say they don't want to run. so mitt romney's best chance in the end if there is a search is that there will be no one else and that he will still have to stay in the race and fight it out all the way to tampa where the convention will be held. >> jeff: john, thank you. the pentagon today identified one of the victims of yesterday's interior ministry shooting in afghanistan as 44-year-old lieutenant corner joll lottus of
