Because he’s not Mitt Romney.
That's exactly why.
Anjd because Romney has never expressed any sympathy for all the workers in manufacturing who lost their jobs, because the policies that enabled him to get rich, also destroyed jobs.
I could add another few reasons that I, personally, supported him:
1. He's not a phony (unlike Romney).
2. He is honestly pro-life, and lives his pro-life beliefs, much like Sarah Palin (and unlike Romney).
3. He stands by all his convictions, including the currently unpopular ones (unlike Romney).
A lot of people admired Santorum even though they didn't necessarily agree with all of his public policy positions or personal beliefs. Polls showed that even his position on contraception, which was wildly mis-reported, gained him respect from both men and women.
Seems like an obvious enough answer.

What the heck is wrong with Journalists?
“Because hes not Mitt Romney.”
Because Rick Santorum was a CONSERVATIVE! Mark Levin said he was one of the most conservative senators in the past 50 years.
And he received an A+ rating from the NRA, and here’s one of the many reasons why:
He [Rick Santorum] was the most effective advocate of bringing it [legislation to protect gun companies from frivolous lawsuits] to the floor and getting a vote scheduled. He used his influence to get it to the floor. Without that, we would have lost every American gun company.
