    No he would not. His views are too extremist, and he would have lost by a larger margin than Romney.

    He is not likable. If you are an ignorant and hate filled ass, maybe you find him so.

    He did flop flop, pretending to support fiscal conservatism.

    Santorum is further out of touch than Romney.

    Romney lost due in part to conservatives like Santorum. His edge was on economics and he may have ridden that to victory if he hadn't stepped in it on Benghazi, Jeep or had to run with the "rape Republicans.

    Santorum's candidacy would have been all about his narrow minded social conservative views. Obama's edge on foreign policy would have been even bigger. Santorum would have lost by a significantly larger margin. He could not even hold on to his Senate seat.

    Not a chance in hell. He's a man with extreme social views and no filter. The map would've been painted blue except for those areas where being a Democrat means you might as well be a serial killer when it comes to winning elections.

    Those are all true. Santorum does have some advantages over Mitt Romney. But considering what happened in Missouri and Indiana, I think a statement like this,

    I believe and I think that the right approach is to accept this horribly created, in the sense of rape, but nevertheless, in a very broken way, a gift of human life, and accept what God is giving to you.
    could easily cause him the same troubles Akin and Mourdock had. I don't see much upside in a Rick Santorum nomination compared to Mitt Romney.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    No one on the Right would have beaten Obama.

    Santorum would have been laughably destroyed against Obama.

    Ans as far as him being "likeable".......

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!

    He's a freak of nature whacko evangelical bible thumping extremist that would strike so much fear into most reasonable voters he'd have lost the election long before most of the western states polls even opened.

    Who asks these kinds of questions?
