    At this point, no. Prior to Florida, Maybe. But now, no. Santorum and Newt have cornered their crowds and vilified the each other to the point that even if Rick endorsed Newt, I doubt his crowd would move. Plus, Romney seems to have hit the tipping point where he now has all the undecided GOP voters in His camp.

    Romney only got 48% in Nevada, which is infested with his fellow Mormon Cultists. 52% still wanted someone else. Now, Republicans might be acquiesing to Romney, but hardly accepting him.

    Think Bob Dole. Establishment beats the rank and file over the head with someone they really don't want, but they don't have a better pick.

    I really do think this year is going to be a disaster for the GOP.

    People are starting to jump on the "I want to vote for the winner" bandwagon. They don't care about the policies, they're just going on the "American Idol" urge to pick the winner.

    Not to mention a heavy dose of the GOP's fatal "It's His Turn" syndrome.

    Maybe. Romney is getting too much exposure and people don't really like him to begin with. Conservatives would love to see Gingrich get in front and stay in front.

    I don't know what Santorum will do because he spent an hour telling me what obama did not do. :cuckoo: I know what obama has done and not done.:confused:

    I don't think it's wise for you to speak on behalf of Conservatives, mo chara. Conservatives are splitting between the four candidates.... because they are individuals.

    As bad as Romney looks right now, I've seen polls that indicate he's #2 on many Republican voters lists - so Santorum's exit would not necessarily mean that his people would go to Newt.

    Not really to both. I'd rather see much more time go Santorum and Paul's way.
