I took this quiz, and I was 92% in favor of Rick Santorum for president, which surprised me. It's a short, twenty question quiz.
My question, we're going through all the candidates, will we give Santorum his day in the sun?

“Does he have a chance?” No
“Will Santorum surge?” No
Don’t know much about him but having watched the last few debates only - I thought he did great and wondered by he was at only 1 or 2%.
Why? No is incomplete.
Same here, I don’t know a lot, but isn’t this someone we should look into?
He was awesome at today’s debate. I was crying.
Santorum comes off as a poorly on TV. He just has zero “it” factor. Does not come off as a leader at all. I interviewed him in person for 20 minutes. Comes off better in person.
Santorum endorsed Specter, Newt endorsed Scozzafava, Perry endorsed, I think, Rudy? Any other lousy endorsements? Who has Romney, Cain, Bachman endorsed?
Doomberg came out on the bottom of my list, below Zer0.
1) his backing of Specter over Toomey in 2004
2) His continued support for earmarks.
3) His absorbtion into the Beltway culture
4) And the fact that he got his arse kicked in 2006 - as an incumbent.
We posted the same second. He was good today.
Lost his home state of Pennsylvania by like 18 points last time around. It really undermines his claim that he can win PA and rust belt states. He also just doesn’t come across well. I can’t put my finger on it, but I guess he just seems too uptight and not very presidential. Finally, Santorum is sort of known as big on social issues and this election will likely be far more about the economy.
Santorum is a good man, but I don’t think he is going to see a poll boomlet like Cain and Gingrich have. Actually, I’d be thrilled to have either Santorum or Bachmann is President, but I really don’t think they have any chance. For whatever reason, they just don’t project the presidential image I guess people are looking for.
Santorum is not my first choice for president. But my first 50 choices aren’t running for president. So I am strongly considering him. It’s laughable to dismiss Santorum and at the same time talk up one of the other candidates running. They all have serious shortcomings.
Can you dig up and post the you tube or equivalent? I’m just inquiring. I hadn’t considered him, but, the last day or so, he’s been popping up on my radar screen.
I think a surge might be happening.
True...but all candidates are showing their warts.
Is the Toomey thing the litmus test as opposed to, say, speaking out in favor of global warming?
he comes across as having a chip on his shoulder—as if he’s owed public office.
Right now, he is positioning himself to be the running mate of Mitt Romney so that in case Romney gets the nomination, the frauds can come and tell us that we should support the ticket since the VP choice is that of a conservative.
Santorum is also acceptable to Karl Rove which makes him yet another crooked politician whose rhetoric is conservative but whose record is liberal.
Something is screwy with that survey. I changed some answers and it keeps putting Santorum at the top. Even changing some to liberal answers as an experiment. (I even changed answers to things like supporting Obamacare, etc and Santorum always ended up on top..)
I wonder if that site is owned by a certain campaign’s camp?
