    Either Newt or Santorum back out

    Trouble ahead for Romney? - Public Policy Polling

    Of course, the problem is neither of them will.

    Interestingly, Santorum does much better than Newt does in a head to head with Romney.

    I can support Romney or Santorum, I dont know that I can support Newt. Maybe conservatives should be rallying around Santorum instead.

    I'm looking closely at Santorum also. I still think Newt is a better debater than any of the remaining candidates and could beat Obama in serious debate.

    I will vote for Newt in the general election, reluctantly.

    I will probably vote third party if Romney wins.

    My ideal candidate is Santorum.

    Santorum I think has the best chance of winning a general election besides Romney.

    Taking a pet on a family trip is hardly going to cause problems for Romney. After all, starting a political career at a terrorist's house didn't hurt Obama, and that's a bit more serious.

    There are going to be two or three debates. We don't need someone who can win a debate, though it would be nice. We need someone who can govern this nation. Newt cant even govern himself.

    Yea, sure. The dog riding for 12 hours on the roof of the family car down the freeway is not the normal way Americans treat their pets. At least Democrats don't treat their pets that way that I know of. Some would think that hosing the poor thing down after it became so terrified it shit all over itself is cruel. Obviously not Republicans. I guess cruelty isn't really an issue for the party of "Let him die" that applauds executions.

    Santorum wouldn't be a bad candidate. However I'm not convinced that if Rick drops out his voters would move over to Newt, at least not entirely. And Mitt is right at the tipping point where he carries states by a big enough margin it doesn't matter if Rick and Newt throw in together. They both stayed in the game and fractured the base just long enough to give Mitt a win.

    Social conservatives and Christian fundamentalists, perhaps – actual conservatives have no one in the race.

    Of course actual conservatives haven’t had a candidate since Goldwater.
