    WASHINGTON (AP) — Prominent conservative leaders want their rank and file to quickly get behind a single presidential candidate, fearful that persistent splits will help Mitt Romney win the Republican nomination.


    The former Massachusetts governor narrowly won the Iowa caucuses when conservative voters divided their support among several challengers, and the worry is that the same thing will happen in South Carolina, Florida and beyond if Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry all stay in the race.


    "Conservatives are still divided among a number of different candidates, but the field is winnowing," said former Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer. And, he said: "I certainly think that Sen. Santorum is in a good position to inherit a lot of that support."

    How about you just vote for the person you like the most and not play political games?

    Conservatives: If you don't have the courage to vote for Ron Paul, vote for the only other guy with a shot at beating Obama; Romney.

    Would conservatives prefer a not-Romney to lose to Obama, or see Romney beat Obama?

    Santorum has next to no chance- he's a social conservative in an election cycle that will elect a Fiscal conservative. He has not had his turn in the barrel (that starts now) and once the media starts ripping him apart it will be tough for Rick. He'll go the same way that Bachman, Perry, Cain, and Newt have....

    Romney will win New Hampshire easily. Then he'll finish in the top tier in South Carolina. After he wins Florida.....it's all over but the crying. If there is anyone we need to rally around- it's Mitt Romney!

    Without Social responsibility, strong moral responsibility, and rebuilding the American Family?

    Economic fortunes will NEVER recover.

    There is a correlation. Santorum was smart enough to make the coorelation and tie them together.

    He's correct.

    Huntsman actually has a very conservative track record as governor of Utah- unfortunately he ran a very bad campaign.
