I’m voting for Newt, which is what I planned to do anyway.
I don’t know why Santorum quit running, he was in a solid second position and Lord knows, Romney can shoot himself in the foot. Nobody seems very curious as to WHY Santorum quit, which he did not explain. But it’s probably too late to do Newt any good.
Romney’s last training wheel came off yesterday, in my opinion. All that remains is the endorsement Santorum makes: Romney or Gingrich.
It’s my *opinion* based on events, that a Newt decision not to back Santorum or form a coalition with him, became a significant factor in Santorum’s decision to suspend.
