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.
Newt gave great speeches, but then started talking about going back to the moon!
Santorum was an empty suit, who spent most of his time in the Senate compromising.
The primayr system is set up for the establishment candidate to win, Reagan was an exception.
