How likely do you think a Santorum win would have been if he had gotten the nomination?
    He would have lost by a wide margin.

    Uh... Cain has Alabama on my map. On the Atlas Forum, where I made my map, the Democrats are red and the Republicans are blue, as matches the international colours of left-wing and right-wing politics.

    In all but 3 general election polls during the primaries, Rick Santorum did worse than Mitt Romney. I guess I don't know for sure if that would've continued throughout the election, but my guess is that it would.

    Haha.
    Yea right.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Huntsman might have won. Santorum, probably not.

    I seriously doubt it. Huntsman's a solid candidate on paper, and may have been able to keep Obama under 300 electoral votes, but he doesn't have much of a presence at all.

    Hell no, the Republicans would have lost every undecided voter because who wants for the insane ultra-conservative unless they are already are.

    I apologize, I misread the map.

    McCain was a watered down moderate.

    Also, most of the primaries were held before Cain really hit his stride.

    Alas, what good is speculation. I personally feel Cain would have held a MUCH better chance at beating Obama than Santorum, whose insanity started to show later on.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Finally someone uses the proper colours. Out networks made fun of that fact with saying it looks like the Liberals have won a solid majority in the South and Mid West while the West Coast and the North are voting Conservative and there seems to be some NDP sates scattered about because the swing states were orange on the map they were using.

    Re: Would Santorum Have Beaten Obama?

    Cain was, essentially, a joke candidate. His "7-7-7" plan had no backing at all from creditable economists, and his entire campaign smacked of being basically an effort at self-aggrandizement. I consider my map actually very conservative; it's possible Cain could've had a total meltdown had he actually won the nomination and lost many states that I gave him.
