I agree with your statements but it played out a bit different than your storyline. In desperation many went with Gingrich near the end despite his personal problems. There were few choices at that point so Santorum and Gingrich split the conservative vote. Conservatives were splintered all over the place in that election which allowed Romney to slide in.
I was good with Perry until I saw him debate. Deer in the headlights with no antlers. There are some who didn’t like Perry because of the corridor or dislike Texans or other reasons. Understand. Conservatives are like cats and hard to herd. I just hope conservatives can unite behind someone to stop Rubio.
