Santorum 11 states he won
Newt 2 states he won
Bottom line is results in the General. You do know that you need to win more than 2 states in the General right. Newt should run for Governor of Georgia. He might just win there. After he gets a statewide election under his belt, he might understand that in order to run for President you have to run in all 50 states.
In my opinion, I think all Newt thought he would have to do is come out and say “I am Newt and I am running for President” and it would be a cinch.
I feel like his ego didn’t prepare him that he would actually have to campaign as he has been so used to being the “SUPAHSTAR” for so long, that it would just happen.
