You are off base lumping Newt with Mitt.
Newt has had tens of millions of GOP-e/Romney ad dollars going out to carpet bomb him, starting in Iowa. Rick Santorum withdrew before Romney unleashed in PA (even though Rick was/is still beating Romney in polls in many upcoming states).
Newt came in second in FL but was heavily wounded by Romney's 10 day $2M/day assault after Gingrich soundly whupped him in South Carolina. Gingrich was the winner in his "home state" of GA and came in second in Alabama and Mississippi. If Newt had withdrawn, Mitt would have rolled over the base long ago.
Give it a rest.

Lets see, Rick Santorum had more votes and twice as many delegates as Newt among the anti-Romney conservatives...
...wonder why? Are conservative voters gullible and stupid?

BTTT I could add a whole more.
Santorum was the luckiest recipient imaginable of Romney's attacks ads on Newt, until those type of devastating ads were ready to run against him in his own state.
This whole primary has been about stopping Newt Gingrich, yet he remains in the race, although, it was first about stopping Sarah Palin from entering. Anyone "Going Rogue" against the GOP-E not wanted.
