The one who should get out is Hartman. And if Perry drops out, the votes would go to Santorum. Santorum is not perfect but he can win against Obama.

Perry needs to get out while his endorsement can still make a difference to either Santorum or Gingrich. If he waits for another 5th place finish in SC, his remaining support will melt away and his endorsement will be meaningless heading into FL. SC is the hill that the conservatives have to defend at all costs. If they don’t coalesce around a candidate then Romney will be unstoppable. A northeast liberal has no business winning in SC, but he could win by default if the conservatives remain fractured.

I disagree. I think Santorum would be another Dole.

Um, sorry to disagree, he stands no chance. Show me one poll where he does well against the Kenyan. Independents are not going to vote for Rick, sorry, they just aren’t.

Santorum would lose by more than the 18% he lost by last time he ran. Santorum offered up a bill praising Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile for all the good things Sandusky did for children. You don't get to be a vocal supporter of The Second Mile while your top issue seems to be gay marriage. Santorum would be destroyed in a general election.
