Santorum, Gingrich, Romney and Paul

Attaining the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 is not being wrapped up as quickly as it was in 2008 with John McCain or 2000 with George W. Bush. I am presently surprised that Rick Santorum is still a viable candidate. One of my Democratic family members asked what did Mr. Santorum do and did he not lose his last senatorial incumbent election in 2006? Even conservative talk show host Michael Medved noted some months back that Santorum’s senate loss did not make for a good presidential candidate.

Really, Rick Santorum has lasted this long, because those supporting and voting for him agree with what he is saying and not giving his prior election loss much consideration. Even though with the current delegate count, Mitt Romney at this point looks like he will be the Republican challenger to Pres. Obama in the fall. For me, it is Rick Santorum. Newt Gingrich runs a close second. Mitt Romney behind Santorum and Gingrich. Ron Paul is last on my primary voting list. Yes, I am struggling a little with voting conscience over pragmatism. In November, I will vote for the Republican presidential candidate against Pres. Barack Obama. That vote will come from both conscience and pragmatism.
