I don't think so. Especially not with Newt splitting his votes.

Adding Alabama and Mississippi to the list of morons. Arkansas will probably be on there eventually.

This candidate pool (with one exception) is the most worthless collection of teets I've ever seen

Santorum doesn't have to catch Romney--all he has to do is keep Romney from getting 1144 delegates.

As a Christian I find this very disturbing.

Santorum can't catch Romney.  But he can destroy Romney guaranteeing that Obama wins in November, which is in Satnroum's best interest. (Romney wins = president window for Santorum closes till at least 2020; Obama beats Romney = Santorum sitting in the cat bird seat for 2016.)

It's the GOP's own fault. They assaulted every other candidate that posed a threat to Romney until the only one left was Santorum. Now Santorum is getting all the votes that would have gone to the Herman Cain's, the Rick Perry's, etc.... because nobody wanted Romney shoved down their throats. Instead of listening to the people, the GOP picked Romney as their guy a long time ago and went on the offensive against his competition. Santorum seemed like the least of their concerns, but now that he's THE ONLY competition, he stands a legitimate chance.

I'm tired of having to decide the better of 2 evils every 4 years. What is wrong with the American voter nowadays? I think that people need to take a test to vote, just to make sure they're smart enough to know what they're voting for -_-

I agree, but it also speaks to the minds (and intelligence) of certain areas of GOP voters.  I mean, I knew the base was behind the times, I just didn't realize they were in the 1800s. But I guess if hating gays, wanting to bomb Iran, and forcing women back into the home is what you want, then this douchebag may be your guy.

I would be happy if voters had to prove they were citizens before voting.

I wrote one of my first poli/sci papers on this very topic, and the prof tried to laugh me out of the classroom until she saw that most of the class agreed with me.
