While Mitt Romney may have the clearest path to the magical 1,144 delegates needed to sew up the GOP nomination, some experts are now imagining another scenario — one where neither Romney, Rick Santorum, or Newt Gingrich feel the magic.

"If Romney cannot accumulate the magic number of delegates for the nomination, it’s possible that none of the candidates will get there before their national convention,” Obama's delegate counter, Jeff Berman, acknowledged to Buzzfeed.

"There is a path forward for Santorum," Berman said. "Whether it’s attainable or not is not yet clear," he added. “Notwithstanding Romney's early delegate lead, their race remains wide open."

GOP strategist Ford O'Connell, from the McCain-Palin campaign, told The Hill that "The biggest stumbling block for Romney is that he's using an atomic bomb to kill an ant, and Santorum just isn't going away."

In an interview with CNN, Santorum, dismissed Romney’s claims that only he could reach the magic number of delegates. "It's pretty sad when all you have is to do math instead of trying to go out there and win it on substance and win it on what Americans want to hear about," the former Pennsylvania senator said during a campaign stop in Puerto Rico as reported by The Hill.

"We're a long, long way from over. You know what? I suspect if we keep winning state after state after state he ain't gonna be the nominee," Santorum said.
