If he couldn’t get it, Santorum couldn’t either.
Was Santorum still winning Primaries after Newt had tanked? Would Newt dropping out around that time have helped Santorum? It very well could have.
Many of us were urging Newt to please drop out. Newt and his supporters said, “No! We’re in this until the convention, so we can’t be bothered listening to you.”
Now he listens. Honestly folks, if you can’t be honest with me, at least be honest with yourselves.
