That is a really ignorant remark.

These results concerning women and Santorum have not been duplicated by any other pollster so I would say they are unique in that finding. Romney usually fairs much better with women than most of the other candidates.

Again, whatever poll you like is accurate and whatever poll which yields outcomes you don't like is biased or incorrect.

Yesterday there was a poll about nearly Santorum tied with Obama and Romney in the lead and you seemed to accept it (even though that's a complete outlier from other polls). ....And that poll was from USAToday and GALLUP (who also did this very same poll)....

Please be consistent. You can't like one pollster some days and dismiss it as bad polling on another when you hate the outcome.

I'll back that up. Domestic problems aren't specific to any partisanship right or left. Just because someone is in a traditional type of relationship doesn't mean that it is abusive. Plus it's santorum and he'd have to take off his sweater vest to just be wearing a wife beater.

Here's the thing about America today: our population at large is rootless, restless, and lacking depth of conviction about anything. The situation is volatile and can change on a dime depending upon a myriad of variables. There's plenty of precedent for this historically around the world.

It's quite possible that Rick Santorum represents the conviction, stability, and character that most Americans respect and probably wish they had themselves. They may come to believe that Santorum can help restore these things.
There seems to be a double standard in regards to the criticisms aimed at both Santorum and Romney. While Romney is incessantly censured for flip-flopping and his record in Massachusetts, the so called "anti-Romney"" wing of the party seems to give Santorum a free pass on his record of ear mark spending and his disastrous 2006 re-election campaign.

While Santorum does have many fine attributes, I honestly don't think he would be able to hold up in a general election.

Yes, double standard is actually an understatement. If Romney wins this nomination, he has done it against all odds.

It's not about 'liking' or 'disliking' one poll or another and it's not rocket science to look back at the polls and see that women have preferred Romney over whoever the other anbody but Romney is and that men have preferred the anybody but Romney candidate most of the time. It's merely looking at the polls and reading them, not conjecture.

Which of these things is not like the other?
