Two days after losing three more primaries, Rick Santorum appears to be in trouble in his home state:
Mitt Romneys taken the lead in PPPs newest poll of Rick Santorums home state of Pennsylvania. Romney has 42% to 37% for Santorum with Ron Paul at 9% and Newt Gingrich at 6%. The numbers represent a dramatic turnaround from when PPP polled the state a month ago. Romneys gained 17 points, going from 25% to 42%. Meanwhile Santorums dropped 6 points from 43% to 37%, for an overall swing of 23 points in the last four weeks.

Go away, PS. You are so boring...
I wasn’t referring to you, CC..in my post..I know you are not one of the haters.
hopefully win the Senate so even if Obama wins re-election his damage would be greatly limited.
I’ve been saying this all along, jveritas. Inform yourselves, contribute and work for Senate candidates who can win and let’s greatly diminish Bam’s power, at the very least by taking back the Senate and keeping the House.
It will take a minimum of 4 years to launch a valid replacement party for the GOP. They are too deeply entrenched to take down in just a few months.
The dangerous thing about going 3rd party this election, is obvious. Since this election is THE most critical election we will face in our lifetimes, we have no choice but to win with the party we have in place now. Even with Romney, we will get some relief and also gain seats in the House and Senate and most importantly, we will at least stop the bleeding from 4 years of Obama.
But first, we have to regain control before we can make a major overhaul within this party. We have no other option.
I’ve stopped telling people that I do not intend to vote for Mittens.
Some Rinos that I know foam and the mouth and look like they are going to kill me.
“IF ROMNEY DOESN”T WIN, IT”LL BE YOUR FAULT”.
No, it’ll be Romney’s fault for sucking so badly as a candidate.
I will stay anywhere I chose, loser........
“When it comes time to pull the lever, who do you want nominating the next supreme court judge (or two), Romney or Obama?”
We hear the same thing every election cycle, like a giant parrot from the GOP RINO establishment.
If Obama wins, Scalia and Kennedy aren’t going anywhere.
The pro-union candidate did lose in Penn. the last time he ran. The unions are willing to cross over in the primary, so he still has a chance, but they will not in the general.
I can’t WAIT for the Myth WASTE of campaign funds to start here in PA. If Rick loses at least he takes a couple million of Mittens warchest down with him. And each commercial in the Bishops’s deluge of dirt is less he has for future endeavors.
Just like Obamney 1.0, 2.0 cannot run on his record so the smears must fly!
“To save America, .... Romney should pull out.”
Yeah and Harry Reid and the other 53 democrat senators should resign and Obama should resign too. And Sotomayer and Kagan should resign too.
Yeah, you tell them.
I think we got a pretty good window into Santorum’s thinking a few weeks ago with his supposed “gaffe” about keeping Obama over Romney. It wasn’t a gaffe. He’s a Bitterman who would prefer Obama over Romney, just to show everyone he was right about Romney not being able to beat Obama.
MM, may I add it will also be the GOPe’s fault also for “giving” Myth his “turn.”
When given the choice between McCain and Romney, Santorum backed Romney as the clearly more conservative candidate. That's not the same as saying Santorum was a fan of Romney's, but it does suggest that claims he's more liberal than McCain aren't valid. At least, not in Santorum's eyes.
“Is the fat lady clearing her throat?”
Yep. Rick is taking a four day break from the campaign trail. Likely to think things over and then announce he’s out.
The fat lady sang in Wisconsin. Anyone analyzing the delegate counts can figure out it’s impossible for Santorum to catch up.
It’s time to focus on getting conservatives nominated for Congressional races. Pay attention to these:
Ted Cruz in TX, US Senate,
he’s running against a moderate, Dewhurst.
Richard Murdock in IN, US Senate, taking on RINO Lugar
There are many other races where conservatives can win and make a big difference.
Let 'em. It's their fault for supporting a liberal like Romney instead of any other candidate in the race who by default would be more conservative.
Despite what they would have you believe, you still get to vote for whomever you want in November. I cannot in good conscience, and will not as a matter of principle, support a known liberal like Romney. I need a difference between the two major candidates or I will go third or write in a conservative. Thanks to the elites, Romney would have no chance to win my state anyway, so my much more important down-ticket vote will still go to elect conservatives.
