I urge ALL Conservatives who can turn out in a primary state, to do so, and even if their candidate is not in the running but is still on the ballot, to vote for that person over ROMNEY as a protest vote and to send a message. This keeps the heat of the fire on the Bishop, which he needs 24/7.

IS there anything current? This is from April 5th which is BEFORE Santorum withdrew ( or suspended his campaign-— or whatever it is he did)

PLanning on doing just that. My two choices haven’t been available for a long time now so I just figured I would either vote for whoever is NOT Romney on the ballot or write in.

What are we to surmise from a poll taken prior to Santorum suspending his campaign?

Just curious why you`re posting a 13-day-old poll that bears no relevance now that Santorum is out.

Is it to show Santorum still had a shot at last count in his home state and shouldn`t have exited when he did?

I just wish Santorum had waited until after the PA primary to get out. I wonder if a deal wasn’t made????

No deal. Just a BIG risk if he lost Pennsylvania again. He is next in line next Primary so he is just going to wait until Romney loses the general BADLY and come back in 2016 and win the Presidency. I don’t blame him at all. He will come back in 2016 pretty clean from his very moral and ethical run in 2012.

If Santorum is on your primary ballot
Vote for the man and his delegates who fought it
Not for the man who brought it
OBMACARE is a 1.76 Trillion $ Hydra
A 9 headed Serpent whose heads must be decapitated all at once with a Firebrand otherwise they grow back and devour everything in sight
by L.J .Keslin / http://www.theusmat.com
Note this article will print out on 1 page at 60% setting

While the ex governor of the only state with mandatory state run health insurance (which is in trouble ) was busy buying up state primary elections Of the three GOP candidates remaining opposing him only one man, Sen Rick Santorum, had the courage to take on a what they call a third rail issue...Eugenics...one of the heads on that 9 headed snake called obamacare.. and Santorum had his character asassinated for it... Rick has been pummeled from both sides Called , a women hater ,, a religious nut, and ..a one trick pony. Santorum spends an hour discussing oil and the economy then 10 seconds comenting about pornography but guess what MSM and Santorum detractors will talk about... certainly not ,what’s really in the 1.76 trillion dolllar wonder called Obamacare ,,...!; Population control,.Death panels., Private presidential armys..requiring US to pay for birth control pills and abortions and all that goes in those 2400 pages of rules, laws,and regulations and with it. cost, 1.76 trillion and rising ..

To pay off a 16 trillion dollar national debt at $16.00 a second would take 31,668 years*. .. Not including interest.There is no way to “fix” Obamacare..Part of that debt is a 1.7 trillion dollar secret Xmas eve gift that was delivered in March 09 that must be returned by someone determined to do so not just exchanged .I’ts doubtfull the man in the Etch a Sketch suit will do it. Mitt has yet to explain how his “Romneycare “is working” A trillion seconds of time =31668 years

Two groups late in the last century led in Eugenic development. The Nazis and the Communists. Few know or remember how the Nazis began. First citing “health risk” “nicht rauchen” baning cigarette smoking, Then terminating Down Syndrome children, and then on to mentally defective children and adults,. then on to besides murdering opponents, races. All done to make the German Reich healthy and last a thousand years

. So you go to the MSM (Main Stream Media) the so called “gate keepers” for information about these things and you find closed gates .. The sorcerers in the media magically reduce a 2000 page Hydra , a Greek legendary nine headed venomous serpent that must be slain by a firebrand ,and morph it into the mourning after pill and a “womans health care issue.”

The “gatekeepers” never tell you that Obamacare bill creators and the Amish are exempt from being in Obamacare. The drafters are on record actually calling it population control and demanding Catholic bishops support it.* Their statements are out there .But not mentioned by the so called gate-keepers but by the AM the alternate media, meaning radio talk shows like Limbaugh’s and websites like Britebart’s Government . Places Obama wants to shut down and will once re-elected *Joel Pollak Britebart Government .

When Santorum talks about freedom he warns women surrender their rights when they buy into this monstrosity . That is what’s in Obamacare which is deceptively titled “The Affordable Health Care Act” .Yet Obamacom tzars who hail from that foreign land, the deep swamp of Acadamica are all preaching the utopian wonders of Eugenics. Why it’s the final solution (remember him ?) population control. Which is part of the Obamacare package.

Fortunately Santorum has not shyed away from this issue miss characterized as only a social issued. It is both a social and financial issue $ 1.75 trillion is in no way a minor expenditure. One of this hydra heads Population control affects US from the cradle to the grave. .but Santorum can not speakout and act against this despicable movement ? Particularly when that is being shoved on religious groups by the Demo-Coms . Especially when they are ignoring constitutional rights...

Private job creation projects rejected by the socialists controlling new demo-com party should send a signal to the Republican bleeding heart establishment . “Bi-partisanship” doesn’t exist with the socialists who have taken over the democrat party and to the GOP leading presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Mr Romney should start realizing Obama is a “socialist”.. Everyone including the monthly liberal magazine Newsweek knows he is but Mr Romney just can’t seem to get around to saying it . Preventing an iron mine in Wisconsin for a desperate area in need of jobs or preventing the Keystone pipeline transfering oil from Canada to American refineries decisions which would have provided employment to thousands and reduced gas prices. was not on the new demo-com agenda.which has taken over. Common good is not their concern but their welfare is.. not ours .
Thank You

Live in PA ....Make up Santorum signs and place them around church parking lots...Learn who his delegate are (won’t be identified on ballot) and vote for them....

Why are you posting old polling results that have no relevance at all anymore? This is from April 5th before Santorum dropped out. The fact that it was this close, is part of why he quit the race. Romney was about to drop 2-3 million in mostly negative ads into PA and Rick had no money left with which to counter. There is a very real chance Santorum was going to lose his home state.......again.

The sad thing is, even if Santorum was still in it and we had this one last chance to deal Romney a defeat, the newtonians still would not vote for him.

In most states, (if I have this right) "writing in" might just get thrown out as an invalid or spoiled vote. However, voting for somebody actually listed on the ballot, will have the net effect of DEPRESSING ROMNEY'S POPULAR VOTE in the final tabulation and giving it to somebody else so the Secretary of State of that state will have to report it. If I were you, I would shy away from a "write in" in this case, and instead vote for one of the anti-Romneys on there for sure, be it Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Cain, whomever, and whether they have endorsed Willard or not. It would be an act of rebellion. We should all be in open rebellion to the establishment GOP at this time.

Let’s win Pennsylvania and keep RINO Mittens from winning it. Take the Santorum and Gingrich ads about Mitt viral to everyone you know in PA — and the media. Write letters. (Find papers online.) If you’re in PA, call the local talk shows and tell them why you still aren’t voting for Etch a Sketch.

Shouldn’t we be voting for Gingrich delegates, since Santorum dropped out?

Only if that district doesn’t have Santorum delegates.

42 for Rick, 38 for Mitt, those haven’t changed since a week or two ago — and it means that Mitt is four % behind Rick in Rick’s home state. Nice job. Thanks Steelfish.
