I did not vote for Dole or McCain & I will not vote for Romney. The GOP had an opportunity for a slam dunk, but, unfortunately, they dribbled the ball out of bounds. The GOP has absolutely shown they are throwing in the towel by pushing Romney.

As if Santorum would be loved by independents & women. Look at all the harm he has done to the party because of his comment on women & other social issues. Mitt was doing well with independents & women & that has declined & I blame it on Santorum. He should have become an evangelical pastor instead of running for president. Even Catholics are voting for Mitt over Santorum because of his extreme views.

It is interesting how the MSM has managed to portray the entire GOP as anti-women based on one out-of-context view of Santorum's regarding contraception. That's an incredible statement of the MSM's remaining influence.

Fact is, Santorum wouldn't stop contraception at all--he's made that clear. My concern is the extreme nature of his abortion stance, which would outlaw abortion even for rape victims. Having government force rape victims to carry the children of their rapists? Yeesh. Don't know how I could sell Rick in the general with that view.

But yes, once it's only Mitt, the "gender gap" will shrink quite a bit.

While both are taking Easter weekend off from campaigning and the next round of primaries aren't for a couple more weeks (April 24th) and are all in the Northeast (Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania), an increasing number of voices are chiming in that the time has come for the GOP to unite around a single nominee, and more people are joining the chorus saying...
