I think all the current candidates should remain in the race right until the end of the primary season. Let's give everybody in the country a voice in choosing the nominee.

oh I don’t want her to give up now, but tomorrow after she comes in dead last in her home state. (after the votes have been cast)
I kind of agree with you. It irks me when people say my candidate should drop out. It really irks me.
From the way it looks now, Huntsman and Bachmann don’t seem to have a chance, but this race as been so volatile that who knows what will happen.
Plus, I, for one, am sick of Iowa. A little state with little caucuses should enjoy it’s moment of glory, don’t begrudge them, but should we pay THAT much attention to it.
It’s tempting to want the other conservative to drop out. As someone said on Fox today, if Romney gets 30% of the vote, it means 70% of the voters want someone else.
The problem is that 70% is divided among Newt, Perry, Santorum and Bachmann.
Everybody wishes the ‘other’ conservatives would drop out and support their candidate.
I wonder who they would actually support if they dropped out?
Samadams76, you are obviously "out of the mainstream" because what you say makes too much sense.
So many Freepers can't wait to pounce on a Michelle Bachmann thread and tell the rest of us how imperfect she is (like a Sarah Palin thread).
"Ohh, ooh, there's one - let me get in there and trash Michelle, she is so much less than any other candidate - all the others are shining stars, but that Michelle, she should just hang her head and resign her seat in the House...."
I would have preferred that certain candidates not run at all - Mitt Romney, especially. Then we would have been more likely to get a better mix of candidates into the race.
But it seems clear that Bachmann should drop out post Iowa. Why anyone would expect her to admit that before the vote is beyond me.
Then there's Tim Pawlenty, who dropped out after a straw poll, a cautionary tale for generations of candidates to come.
