Will Santorum Pull Out After Florida?

Will Santorum Pull Out After Florida?

There are 17 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Jan 31, 2012, titled Will Santorum Pull Out After Florida?. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

Santorum is running low on cash and trailing behind in the polls, and Gingrich has repeatedly called on him to drop out so that the non-Romney vote will solidify around Gingrich.

Santorum is "hoping to hang on with a strong showing in the Florida primary," The Washington Post reports. But actually, he's already pretty much conceded defeat in Florida, by leaving the state and moving his campaign to the Midwest.

Meanwhile, conservatives are debating whether Santorum should continue campaigning while his daughter is sick:

In church pews, medical circles and among some conservatives, Santorum’s decision to remain a candidate, even as his prospects dim and his daughter battles a fatal illness, has sparked conversation about whether he should remain in the race.

There are still some good reasons for Santorum to stay in the race. He's arguably the last real social conservative left in the race (although Gingrich is attempting to win over social conservative voters, who will need to conveniently forget about Gingrich's history of ethics scandals and marital infidelity.)

He's also, he claims, the only candidate who can appeal to "Reagan Democrats" - blue-collar workers in the "rust belt." And he argues that he's the only candidate who can go up against Obama on healthcare, since Romney and Gingrich are both tarnished by their earlier support for Obamacare-like health policies.

Weigh in: should Santorum drop out of the race?

He probably should, and he could do it in such a way as to save face; by explaining he needs to be home to care for his ailing daughter.

If Santorum wore a condom, he wouldn't have to be concerned with pulling out.

Great point.

Except for the fact that Barack Obama received more votes than any other POTUS in US History in the last election.

In fact, he beat the runner-up (Reagan in 84) by over 13,000,000 votes.

What did you say about stupid people, again?

That's because he duped the Independents and ran as a centrist..as soon as he was elected he took the country as far to the left as fast as he could. Not to mention, the lamestream media lied and covered up for him, ACORN thugs cheated for him, he recieved unreported, untraceable, illegal foreign donations via the internet. Basically, he lied, cheated and bought his way to the WH. Its not going to happen this time. I predict the GOP will win in a major, historic landslide that will make the entire world gasp in awe!!

He should drop out and Endorse Newt Gingrich. Newt Gingrich is building a Conservative coalition and consensus against the RINOS. Mitt Romney is a Fraud. He recently admitted that he wants to Fund ObamaCare, not repeal it!

Mitt Romney disgusts his Supporters with his Flip-Flopping and Liberal Lies. Recently Mitt Romney arrogantly admits in this latest video below from Florida that he actually wants to Fund ObamaCare and NOT REPEAL IT!!! He Lied to all of us. The stupid Republican establishment are far too stubborn and Proud to admit they made a mistake in promoting Mitt Romney. But the commonsense members of the Tea Party were more aware of the fact that Mitt Romney is a BIG FRAUD!!!

And I'm sure as soon as an 'illegal Kenyan commie' runs you'll be right.

But seeing there isn't one in the race....what's your point?

Some valid points, for the insane.

However, given the list of accusations in your post he'll probably only win this time by 13 Million votes instead of 11 Million as he did in 2008, and 100 Electoral Votes as compared to 95 in 2008.

I still believe there's a republican on the side lines that will be forced to react to the unfavorability polls on Gingrich and Romney. No self respecting Republican would allow either to enter into a race against Obama to take a thumping that could shape politics in America for the next 40 years.

When Palin was on the ticket, life long centers of the Republican Party William Buckley endorsed Obama and voted democrat, that suggest that the fiscal conservative are embarrassed to be associated with the motivations of the base of the GOP.

What's going on now with the GOP Primary is the manifestation of that disagreement and embarrassment.

Since the day of allowing the Segregationist of the South in to caucus with the GOP everyone knew this day was coming it's been 50 years in the making. The day has arrived.

he should get out and endorse ron paul since he is the only true conservative left, and the only one who had been faithful to the constitution.
