Just because one candidate has raised more money doesn't mean a thing.
Santorum's thinking is flawed. The voters will vote according to what they want
to hear. Santorum's popularity among evangelicals and ultra-right conservatives
is due to these groups' dislike, hatred, or ignorance concerning Mormons.
Santorum is banking on this ignorance and it's working. He and Newt are dividing
the GOP for selfish reasons, NOT for the good of the party. Romney is more
conservative then they give him credit. The only difference is that Romney leads
by listening to two sides and will compromise when it benefits the majority.
Santorum is preaching, Newt is pontificating his record. Newt possesses a flawed
moral base and character (2 affairs anyone?) while Santorum preaches his
religious ethics to sound like governing policy. This is a guy who lost by 18
percent in his home state of Pennsylvania. Big question, Why? What did his
constituents see that the rest of the conservatives and evangelicals refuse to
see? Perhaps it is their blind ambition to not support a Mormon? I think so. It
is nothing more than religious bigotry. As noted, Romney has not brought up
religion, nor has any of his surrogates/supporters.
