Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney may not be very popular among the GOP base, but delegate math will make it very difficult for either Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich to topple him. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor pointed to the front-runner’s strength Wednesday, Politico reports.

“Mitt Romney is going to win this race,” the Virginia Republican said on CBS’ “This Morning” program. “Mitt Romney is the only one with a clear path toward that nomination.”

Cantor lauded Romney’s economic credentials. “[His opponents] have not demonstrated the ability to do what needs to be done. Mitt Romney has clearly demonstrated that he’s got the organization and that he has the actual record to show that he understands how to solve problems,” the majority leader said. “He understands the problems facing this country and knows how to get people back to work again.”

As for Romney’s performance Tuesday, he “did what he had to do,” Cantor said. “He racked up more delegates than any of the other candidates. He won six out of the 10 states that were up.”

Cantor isn’t worried about an extended primary campaign. “If you look at what was going on four years ago on the Democratic side of the aisle, you had this same issue going on between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” he said. “There was a debate that went forward. The parties are supposed to engage in a debate of ideas.”
