Rick Santorum: Frontrunner!

Even when Rick Santorum surprised in Iowa, he was never considered a top contender because he never really budged in the national polls. But there is no doubting that Rick is a contender now after sweeping three states last week.

But now something incredible is happening. There were two national polls yesterday that showed Santorum now second to Romney in one and in a virtual tie for first. But the really interesting thing was the dailies on those polls showed a huge momentum shift toward Rick in the past few days. And now comes this bombshell.
Riding a wave of momentum from his trio of victories on Tuesday Rick Santorum has opened up a wide lead in PPP's newest national poll. He's at 38% to 23% for Mitt Romney, 17% for Newt Gingrich, and 13% for Ron Paul.
A fifteen point lead! Now it is one poll and PPP, but you couple that with the other polls and it is easy to conclude that we have a new frontrunner in this race.

Rick Santorum!

Again, I think that the Obamacare mandate's unconstitutional power grab and violation of fundamental religious liberty reminded Republicans and Conservatives exactly what is at stake in this election and made fresh all the emotion and frustration of 2009.

It will be interesting to see if these numbers can hold up and Santorum can take a state like Michigan. If he can, Romney's goose may be cooked and I love the smell of moderate goose in the morning!

Go Rick!!!!

  1. Yeah, I wonder what it will take for some people to consider him "legitimate" or "electable" at this point?

  3. STOKED!

    Time for the long-suffering conservatives in Michigan to unite. Detroit is collapsing under continual liberal, progressive rule. Is that a powerful enough example for you, a failed city in the heart of your state... once one of America's most beautiful cities?

  8. Game on! Pray for Rick Santorum and his family! Contrary to what has been said about him by Ron Paul, he does seem like the only true conservative alternative to Mitt Romney, and what a contrast to our president! Rick's family alone speaks volumes!

  10. I don't think Romney should be called a "moderate." He is a Democrat in Republican Sheep's Clothing.
    Deo Gratias!

  16. Here's a dose of reality from a more intellectually honest Catholic blog: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/yimcatholic/2012/01/woods-endorses-ron-paul-over-rick-santorum.html

  18. "Intellectually honest"... what's that mean from someone won can't get his facts straight on something as simple as what was actually said, no matter how many times it's pointed out? Probably "here's someone I agree with."

  19. Anyone care to explain where the $ is going to come from to fund Santorums plans to enter into even more wars? Healthcare?? He supported pro-abort Spector, shoot, his wife lived with an abortion provider for years so his abortion and Obamacare positions shift with the winds....such a good "catholic" "moderate".

    "Watch how Rick Santorum touts his liberal street cred in this 2006 campaign ad (Mr. Electable lost by a wide margin) as he panders how he worked on liberal causes with some of the top liberals in Congress.

    They should have played this at CPAC after he talked about being a principled conservative.

    What about Rick defending Liberal Republican Arlen Spector and endorsing him in this video?

    Arlen Specter then switched parties to the Democrats and voted for ObamaCare!

    Here is Rick's (non) answer on why he supported Arlen Spector:
