    i vote no. the candidate made the comments. let him run on them. to demand that he drop out removes the responsibility from the voters.

    Tactically it would be stupid. If he did, then Akin's supporters are mad at Romney. If he did not step down, Romney looks weak.

    Morally, it is not Romney's place to tell other candidates what to do.

    From any angle, I can't see where Romney should ask Akin to quit.
    But he has.
