1) Normal supporters who believed in him and once they saw who he really was or that he could not win went on to support another candidate.
2) Non-legit Sanotorum supporters who were really Romney supporters but were afraid to admit it. (they feared getting zotted from some of the conservative forums.
3) Today's Akin supports. Many in this group have an ego about the same size. An ego so big that they are willing to allow Obama's infanticide to become law of the land to teach the GOPe a lesson. Their candidate (Akin) was funded and still supported by the pro-abortortionist democrats. This group is so angry with the GOPe for Santorum's loss that they have the goal of pushing for an Obama victory so that they can say to the GOPe: "we told you so".
*to this day the third group (who supports Akin today) refuses to accept the fact that Santorum was in the bag for their enemy Mitt Romney all along.
**today they refuse to accept that Akin is supported by the very people they supposedly oppose.
Definition of insanity, please?
Note: Unfortunately they (group 3) have been outed and pegged for who they really are. And unfortunately we can no longer blame the RINOs for any defeat in 2012. This group #3 now owns that pending defeat. They make us conservatives look bad.
Arrant nonsense disguised as precise analysis. What you wrote is nonsense.
