    The majority of normal common sense libertarian leaning conservatives got split between Romney (older conservatives) and Ron Paul (younger conservatives). Santorum got the evangelical and fundie concentrate (people anywhere between 35 and 55).

    If Santorum thinks he can even come close to getting any other state he's dreaming.

    Well, I take that last comment back because he might do well in a couple states in the south.

    I agree. Southern conservatives dont like Romney. Santorum is the answer they have been looking for. Right CJ??

    I'm going to go with the hunch that YOU don't really have a clue as to what a "Southern Conservative" likes or doesn't like about Romney, or what they are looking for in a candidate. We will start to get a clearer picture on that when the South Carolina primary results start rolling in on January 21st.

    I live in the deep south in one of the most conservative counties in Texas. I know how southern conservatives think. These are deeply religious people in the bible belt.

    They dont relate to Romney. The mormon religion is viewed as a cult.

    They relate to Santorum. When he talks about his faith, southern conservatives can relate. To be popular in the south, you have to be white, christian and conservative. The fact that the other social conservatives are done, doesnt help Romney.

    Santorum will be very popular in the Deep South. Romney not so much

    ...And yet the Governor of SC endorsed Romney. I think I will wait and see what unfolds down there before I take your word for it that you "know what southern conservatives think". I could be wrong, but my gut tells me that you don't exactly hangout with a bunch of "social conservatives" to really have all that big of grasp on their thinking.

    One thing ive noticed about the conservaposse is that their lifestyle doesnt transcend outside their luxury bubbles. With that said, my personal life experiences have transcended many boundries in/out of some diverse cultural realms- predominately social conservatives by default of the demographics comprising my residence.

    Romney is a cult leader and liberal in sheeps clothing in the deep south. Southern conservatives relate to Santorum and his faith. Santorum just needs to draw in prior supporters from the other social conservatives.

    Big picture: Both are unelectable.
