Following the Primaries on April 3rd where Mitt Romney cleaned up against Santorum in the Northeastern states, Santorum's speech following the a** whipping included the phrase "This is halftime", meaning that Santorum is trying to say that hes staging a comeback in "the second half"

Lets look at the half time score though,

Mitt = 658 delegates
Rick = 281 delegates

Lets put this into a Football halftime score term to easily comprehend.
Mitt has 658 which if we divide by ten is just over 63 points, or about 9 touchdowns, Santorum then would have just under 28 points if we do the same thing, which is 4 touchdowns.

So now lets look at the halftime scores of Mitt against other candidates
Romney 63, Santorum 28
Romney 63, Gingrich 14
Romney 63, Ron Paul 3

Only difference between the election and an actual football game though is that there is a number that you reach to win the game, you dont have to be ahead as time expires. What is the final score you need? You need 1144 delegates, which is about 112 points in this football analogy.

Romney needs only 49 more points
Santorum needs 84 more points
Gingrich needs 98 more points
And Ron Paul needs an act from God himself

The more you know :D

I turned this football game off a long time ago. It was a blowout in the first quarter and hasn't gotten any more competitive since. I'm mostly just still watching for the cheerleaders.

Yeah, Team Romney won the opening toss and started the game on a 25-6 run and never let off from there. Team Santorum got a couple 6-0 and 8-0 runs in there, but Team Romney would always respond with either a 10-0 or 13-2 run of his own. Its an 84-36 basketball game at the half.

But Team Santorum is gonna keep fighting because Rick believes in moral victories.

Santorum, done. Gingrich, done.

Hopefully Sarah Palin can steal the show at the convention and rack up the unbound delegates or just have the RNC just select her.

She has the best chance against Obama. Romney just can't excite his base and provide motivation to vote for him. Everyone is just settling for Romney. I saw a poll that said 62% of Republicans don't want Romney

I think the scenario you described would certainly be fascinating, however unrealistic. It's pretty much Romney's general election to lose now.

The only thing really up in the air is his VP choice, and who knows, maybe that could energize people to actually have positive support for his ticket. But, I doubt it.

That's how politics works when you don't get to choose your candidate. I imagine it is larger for other leaders, though.

No matter what happens, on the ballot I'll write-in either Ron Paul or Gary Johnson. No one else is worthy of my vote.

The reasons people settle for him is because he is "inevitable", yet if people do not support him he is not gonna win, as he would have no support.

Santorum offers bigger government intervention into your personal life than Obama. Romney offers more of Obama. Why would you want either one of them to win?

Why would you support him? He wants to repeal the Civil Rights Act.

Ron Paul is a Republican first, Libertarian second. It's likely that even if he was president, he would compromise a lot of those beliefs to make peace with the establishment.

Have you even read his speech on why he wants to? Look it up, it's on the web. He is the farthest thing from racists, infact, lots of bla ks are supporting him because he shines the light on the "war on drugs."

I honestly do not care why he wants it done. The fact of the matter is that it would be detrimental for minorities.

I don't believe that's a very good case to stop someone from voting for him. It can be said about anyone. Rarely is there a President who doesn't compromise.
