Opinion: Why Rick Santorum won't stop

by - April 09, 2012

Leading conservative activists have met three times this year to try to unify their movement behind Santorum (January and March in Texas, this month in Virginia). But look what happened last week in Wisconsin. Republican primary voters who called themselves “very conservative” split evenly between Romney and Santorum. Those who “strongly support” the tea party movement went for Romney. Romney even nearly overtook Santorum among evangelical voters.

The only Republican voters who gave Santorum a clear edge were those who said abortion was the top issue. They were only 12 percent of Wisconsin Republicans. There is a danger here that Santorum may become a single-issue crank candidate.
