Conservative Frontrunner Santorum Wins Majority against Romney (if Gingrich steps aside)!
Popular, young and strong on Values, dynamic Senator Rick Santorum wins, with a large, absolute Majority of Votes, against the Unpopular, old and flip-flop Millionaire Mitt Romney, if Gingrich (who has lost in too many States), at last, steps aside, recent Polls reveal :
For example, the Front Runner among Conservatives, Santorum, could crush Romney, with 55 % against only 33 % respectively, if Gingrich stepped aside, i.e. with a Winning margin up to + 21%, according to the latest Luisiana Polls by Magelan Strategies BR, of the 19 of March. Oherwise, (i.e. if Gingrich insists to Divide the Conservatives), Santorum again Wins against Romney there, but with a margin of 13% (37 % - 24%).
Nationwide, Conservatives Santorum and Gingrich already have 1 Million Votes more than Romney (with about 5 Millions against only 4, respectively), added to more than 1 Million also of Paul's.
More than 61 % of Gingrich Voters, when he steps down, prefer to vote for Santorum, while only 22 % would go to Romney, reveal f.ex. the same Polls.
Until now :
+ Santorum Won in 10 (Ten) States, while Gingrich only in 2 (two).
+ Santorum has got 246 Delegates, compared to only 141 for Gingrich.
+ Santorum has won about + 600.000 more Votes than Gingrich.
>>> With Santorum US President, Gingrich could become a good Vice-President, or State Secretary, etc.
=> United together, the Conservatives, (who already are a Majority in Votes : See above), could OBVIOUSLY also WIN the GOP 2012 Presidential Nomination, crushing Romney easily.
On the contrary, if Gingrich insists to Divide the Conservatives, he would be alone to bear the grave Responsibility, if, eventually, a MINORITY candidate, as Romney, might, perhaps, usurpate, at the end, a nomination that he obviously does not deserve, contrary to elementary Democratic Principles.
Thought you might find this interesting. Although it is late in the game, it is encouraging to see that the majority in the primaries want a conservative candidate. Paul, Santorum, Gingrich have more than a million more votes than Romney so far in the primaries. Those who are behind Paul and Gingrich are very unlikely to vote for Romney (the poll above seems to indicate that if Gingrich dropped out, his supporters would be divided with 3 out of 5 to Santorum, 1 out of 5 to Romney, and the other 1 out of 5 watching on the fence). This thing is far from over...
Then again, we can't win the general election if the only states we win are the traditional red states. We need a few purple states to obtain the necessary electoral votes as we saw in 2008. flame away.
Agreed. But I think that is a key for the GOP not going with Romney. He won’t take the purple states.
Newt Gingrich isn’t getting out of this election, period. So you just dream on.
I’m not voting for Santorum because he is a pathological liar who has supported abortion in the past and has lied to you and others about his stance. There is a very good reason the folks in Pennsylvania voted his out of office - he is a hypocrite!
As for Romney - he is a Republican pretender, and a liberal Democrat in reality.
This isn’t over until the balloon drop at the end of the convention in August.
Not dreaming. Just putting this out there for discussion. At any rate, it is clear that Gingrich cannot get the 1144 delegates and that should already influence the rest of the primaries.
Saying that Santorum supported abortion seems a bit extreme - Republican, Catholic, father of 7 children. Do you have some actual proof on this?
Prolife Politics or Postulate?
I know about Gingrich and Romney. Until two months ago I knew little about Rick Santorum. Now I know enough to distrust him thoroughly.
Jimmy Carter, too, was a fine Christian and social conservative, married to the same woman for decades with three children. As President he was a disaster - you need to look deeper into Santorum’s political past before thinking he would make a good conservative President - because he has never been politically a consistent conservative.
The polls, at any rate, are just that - polls. What people will actually vote is harder to say. A week ago Santorum was considered above Obama in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Ohio, all states in the purple. See this video:
The video at that link sadly confirms your point - from his own lips. What a mess our country finds itself in! I would have never believed it, but he shows himself (at 4 minutes on) to be just another waffling politician (personally opposed, but...) - more conservative than others, perhaps, but inconsistent. Thank you for the link, that is, as thankful as I can be for such disappointing news.
For anyone else who wants to see the video in question (go to 4 minutes and watch him waffle): http://video.foxnews.com/v/1456869706001/santorum-in-a-michigan-state-of-mind/
Mitt needs Newt so his people can claim to be Newt people so they can smear Santorum without getting Romney's hands dirty. If these guys would just admit they would rather have Mitt win the nomination than Santorum they wouldn't be a bunch of mean-spireted hypocrites cuz the fact is-a hit on Rick is a kiss on Mitt.
Newt came in with class and now he has become a pathetic shadow of his former self—a useful idiot of the GOP-e RINOs.
Wonder what Mitt promised him?
“...it is encouraging to see that the majority in the primaries want a conservative candidate.”
It is encouraging. What’s not encouraging, in fact it’s down right demoralizing, is that so many Republican voters want another candy-ass, never-run-anything dope like Wittle Wicky Santorum.
I’m not going to beat up on Gingrich but the simple fact is that now demanding that all get out of the race and conservatives do as they’re told.
I’m a Santorum guy and won’t be voting for Romney under any circumstances. I haven’t forgotten what an arrogant ass he is.
Probably time to just leave it alone and let it play out. It is too late for the non Romney’s. I doubt any miracles are going to happen.
When you do the math using the states left, Romney will get his 1144.
There are a bunch of Romney “sure win” winner take all states coming up.
Even if this would end up at the convention, the GOP-e has Romney covered.
“My own thought is a Santorum/Gingrich ticket at a brokered convention.”
I agree. I am concerned it won’t reach at brokered state though.
.... that in no way...from then on.... reflects his years of passionate defense of the unborn while in the Senate....
...and his many years ongoing defense still.
Just how strongly were you in his court in the first place.
..ps, Satin Doll has been vehemently against him from the git go.
Well how strategically do you THINK Newt Gingrich will get the nomination? huh..might it involve strategically voting for Santorum in some instances? Let’s face it a “new media” strategy at convention to convince Romney delegates to support Newt on the first ballot isn’t going to do it, and if Romney gets 1100+ it’s over. So tell me, how do you propose that Gingrich wins without at least informally allying with Santorum..
As the next person who posted states: Does that mean that you want Mitt Romney given the choice between he and Rick Santorum?
Really, I just love God, my Church, my country, and the unborn, and I definitely want a President who will defend these things. We need to end the “Obamanation”. Santorum is the only one left who fits the bill and has a remote chance. Obviously none of the candidates will ever be “perfect”.
I’m not even thinking about who gets the nomination. That decision, hopefully, will be made at the convention.
The MSM and Republican establishment have made it obvious they do not want the Capital’s business to change as they continue to feed on the corpse of Uncle Sam, and as Gingrich had said Washington doesn’t work and he intends to change it, they will do everything possible to prevent his nomination even to the extent of blocking him speaking out.
I do research on the candidates and compare their past performances with what they’re claiming they will do this time around if in office. So it isn’t that I ‘like’ someone; it is that I know only one candidate has ever actually changed government. We’re choosing a political executive leader here, not a preacher.
Santorum and Gingrich should both stay in the race and try to prevent Romney from getting all available delegates. They’ve already proven Romney has difficulty in getting half or more of the “hard delegates” in each primary so far. Romney’s hard delegate count in 453 vs. 624 for everyone else (uncommitted, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, etc.). See: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P12/
I have been warned not to bring up the eligibility issue concerning one of the conservative candidates. If you want to look that up I suggest you google it.
Santorum is NOT friendly towards Gingrich and has, at times, been unnecessarily hostile to his former mentor. The idea they will join forces is ludicrous as Santorum will not agree to it.
But nice graphics though.
Absolutely, I would prefer Romney to Santorum. Neither of them are worthy to shine Newt’s shoes, but at least I’d bet Romney knows how.
Santorum hasn’t demonstrated an ability to run anything except a election campaign. Precisely the same qualifications as the current “president.”
Thanks for the compliment :-) Actually, I just cut and paste from the web page - I could never take credit for the work (see the link at the top). At any rate, I agree that statistics can always be massaged to suit anyone's point of view; but the truth is that Paul, Santorum and Gingrich have up to now been dividing the conservative majority which has allowed Romney to slither out in front. He looks invincible, but if we look at it as Romney vs. conservatives he is more than 2 million votes behind.
Also, it should not be forgotten that in all likelihood Santorum took Missouri which is a winner-take-all state and that in Louisiana, where he crushed Romney, there are another 20 delegates to be offered at the convention. That’s 78 delegates which would potentially put Santorum at the 350 mark. With Gingrich’s campaign cut backs and the fact that he can’t get the 1144 votes, drop out or not (and “not” seems to be the order of the day), people are aware that the only two going into the convention with a chance of getting the 1144 are Romney and Santorum. So the choice is fairly clear.
Just a follow up on my comment above, I think we do well do underscore that while Santorum may not be perfect (and, let’s face it, none of the candidates are) and he may have faltered on this minor issue in his campaign, nonetheless, that doesn’t change the fact that he is the only conservative candidate left that could potentially keep Romney from getting the 1144. He is passionately pro-life, pro-family, pro-made-in-America, pro-religious freedom. He is and will be STRONG on the points that count as President, and so I will not hesitate to vote for him.
There are other reasons not to vote for him. You haven’t done the research necessary to prenent you from making an OMG!
However, the biggest difference between Romney and Obama is on the other side of the ledger: 53 percent of Americans hold favorable views of the president; for Romney, that number slides to 34 percent. Positive ratings of Obama steadily improved over the course of his fight for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination something not evident in Romneys ratings this time around, or last.
The GOP elites, who endorsed, or praised Romney, arent as smart as they though they were.
Lets hope voters wake up, and vote for the best candidate in the primaries - Santorum - and not the candidate they mistakingly THINK can win (Romney).
One thing is for sure, the “elite” on any side of the fence don’t want Santorum. He’s not a socialist, one world government insider with the whole population control agenda. I think the elite let the primaries run a bit to allow the impression that there is a real race, but in the end - humanly speaking - they always intended to block out Santorum and they have decided now is the time to come out of the closet and endorse their choice and try to shut him down. They control the money and the media. Even if people wake up on the grassroots level and Santorum’s momentum picks up, they will do anything to try to stop him - money, media, even dirty pool. But nothing is impossible with God!
“But nothing is impossible with God!”
Absolutely; hence my tagline. We must keep praying for good leaders, and so the majority of SCOTUS rules that Obamacare is unconstitutional. Today is a big day, as they are going over the arguments, and make their first vote.
Mitt needs Newt so his people can claim to be Newt people so they can smear Santorum without getting Romney’s hands dirty. If these guys would just admit they would rather have Mitt win the nomination than Santorum they wouldn’t be a bunch of mean-spireted hypocrites cuz the fact is-a hit on Rick is a kiss on Mitt.
Talking about Newt supporters here? Name names.
“(there are many here)”
