I am not sure who's GOP you are referring to here, but it's not the GOP that actually has all of the power and controls the party and who gets the support. You must be referring to the evangelical, extreme right wing who only think they have all of this power and can excercise their own form of bigotry and get away with it. That is NOT the real leadership of the GOP.

Did you see the Bushes, George H.W. and Barbara Bush, and Jeb Bush putting their support behind Romney? That is the true leadership in the Republican Party. The Bushes daughter Doro Bush Koch has been fund raising for Mitt Romney for over a year now. When the Bushes publically throw their support behind you, that is the GOP that matters.

The 2016 race should have better candidates leaving Rick Santorum towards the bottom of the field if he runs again. I would expect the 2016 Republican field to include some or all of the following... Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels, Bobby Jindal, Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul.


Haley Barbour...??? He couldn't get re-elected in his own state of Mississippi right now. They seriously think he has something wrong with him. He blew any shot he ever had at running for anything else again.

The GOP ran their B-Team in 2008, which is why they saved Romney for this election. They know they have to win this time and you ain't seen nothing yet.

100% agree.

The Republican leadership is pressuring Santorum to drop out now in order to avoid a brokered convention. THAT is what they are truly afraid of...and they should be ; )

Brokered convention-LOL! Mathematically, RS could not get destroyed as he did in the majority of states. With what MR already has in delegates, simply sweeping the Northeast as is definite, adding in Ca, and even getting 1/2 the delegates in Pa seals the 1,144 and than some.

The GOP has commandeered this election for Romney.

Yes, the GOP held a gun to the 4.5 million people's heads that have voted for Mitt Romney so far...lol. What a silly thing to say.

Didn't Romney run and lose in 2008? I can appreciate that you're a Romney supporter but what exactly has he done in the interim to elevate himself to the A-team?

I am one of the Ron Paul supporting delegates in MN that the media currently has assigned to Santorum on all of their "delegate tracker" sites.

"Thursday, April 05, 2012: Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum holds a four-point lead in his home state in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the upcoming Pennsylvania Republican Primary. A new statewide telephone survey finds that 42% of Likely GOP Primary Voters support Santorum, while former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney picks up 38% of the vote. Texas Congressman Ron Paul earns seven percent (7%), and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at six percent (6%). "

Although it is within the margin of error are they not mentioning this on Fox News?
