Thread: GOP fight now Romney vs. Santorum

    GOP fight now Romney vs. Santorum

    The Republican presidential contest trudged into Puerto Rico Wednesday as a two-man race, with Rick Santorum nipping more aggressively at Mitt Romney's heels after again frustrating the front-runner in Southern primaries.

    If Gingrich drops out soon that will make things even MORE interesting

    Yes it would. Santorum would pick up those votes, right?

    I would imagine he would pick up a large majority of them. I think Newt pretty much has to drop out now after his performance in Miss/Bama yesterday.

    Santorum needs to reach out to Gingrich and encourage him to drop out by offering him a prominent post in the administration should he win. As it stands now, Gingrich's role is much like that of Ross Perot in 1992. I would imagine that most of the Gingrich voters would lean towards Santorum should Gingrich drop out.

    Poyer is right (hardest thing I've ever posted on this board). If Gingrich drops out, it would get REALLY interesting.

    Watching Republicans choose Santorum over Romney is like watching one of those Buddhist monks set themselves on fire to protest war.
    Run, Riley, run!

    I agree with 'nut. Santorum should set himself on fire.

    Just wait until I throw you down into the reactor core, which is conveniently located in your throne room.

    I am not sure that Newt will drop out. He was still pontificating about "elite media" conspiracies even last night. It appears his strategy is to hope to prevail in some kind of a broker convention. Of course, lambasting the Republican establishment for months on end seems to be an odd way of pursuing that strategy. In any event, Gingrich is alot of things, but he is not stupid. It certainly appears that he despises Romney -- the ironic thing is that dropping out of the race would be by far the most effective way to stick it to Romney. It'll be interesting to see if his ego allows him to do that.

    Not only that, but dropping out of the race now might be his best bet on getting to a brokered convention and securing the nomination.
