Social conservatism is irrelevant in this year's presidential race. This election is about economy, national debt & spending, and foreign policy. Santorum is the wrong candidate at the wrong time. Those who vote for him for his social conservatism are dong the Republican party and themselves a huge disservice! He could NOT win in November.

So Kansas is voting on the person that visited their state the most, not on the political issues. Such a sad commentary on the people of Kansas.

I'm shocked that this could be a surprise to anyone. Kansas is a Tea Party nest and Wyoming as a high percentage of Mormons.

For those Republicans that are tired of this out of control fiasco, the Democrat Caucus is Tuesday night at 7 pm. There will be a caucus location near you.

"For those Republicans that are tired of this out of control fiasco, the Democrat Caucus is Tuesday night at 7 pm. There will be a caucus location near you."

Now, by out of control fiasco, are you talking about things like adding $5 trillion to the national debt in 3 years, or are you talking about passing a 2000 page healthcare bill on Christmas Eve with a bare majority? Or are you talking about unemployment that has ever come back down below 8% for three years?

By the way, Mormons only make up 11% of Wyoming's population. Mitt is also leading in Mississippi and tied in Alabama...NOT exactly Mormon strongholds.

The western states see what Romney did for the Olympics and they want that for America. Smart move. He is the only one with the smarts and the skills and the money to take on Obama.

Santorum is not just doing the Party wrong, he is doing the country wrong. There is no way he is going to beat Obama with these kind of phrases about not telling the truth. Obama will not have to dig too far and Santorum's evangelical base will have a problem with that. Romney has a good team to analyze where to spend money, time and efforts. Santorum doesn't have the staff to do that. Social issues may be important but not vital as Constitutional basics that the President has learned to get around due to his law background. Pass the law then read it is not what our Founding Fathers ever thought would happen, even in a high tech world where communication is quicker than the old personal messenger days without mail and Internet to help. Newspapers have changed their process also due to the liberal media.
