  • Rick Santorum Is A Viable Candidate

    His brand of politics isn't popular this time around, but, in 2011 & 2012, he showed how he was a viable candidate. His positions cover all three legs of the Conservative stool: domestic policy, foreign policy, and social policy. For that reason, he is one of the most complete presidential candidates to run for the Republican nomination. While people may point to his social beliefs as a disqualifier, Santorum has repeatedly called for the issues of gay marriage and abortion to be decided by constitutional amendments. This is a far cry from extremism and shows that he is willing to work within the constitutional process to get a definite decision.

  • Not 1st choice, but viable

    From his decent track record and wide range of experience his viability cannot logically be questioned. Considering his previous relatively successful campaigns (successful used in a loose fashion to describe his unique rise in popularity) a sudden rise in the polls would not be surprising if he survives the primaries.

  • Look at 2012

    Rick Santorum is a good presidential candidate. Look at 2012 for an example of how good he can be. He was the underdog going in, keep that in mind. He trailed Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich even, and Mitt Romney. Then he made a spectacular comeback and finished 2nd to Romney in the primaries. Santorum is again an underdog, but keep this in mind, he has been one before.

  • Rick Santorum is a viable presidential candidate.

    Rick Santorum has a background that would enable him to serve well as president. He could develop a strong following if his campaigning is done correctly. He could serve well in the role as president if his plans can be well put together and are able to be carried out.

  • Rick Santorum is not a viable presidential candidate.

    Rick Santorum is not a viable presidential candidate mainly due to his extreme religious views and bigotry toward the LGBT communities. He has no experience in foreign affairs nor any military experience as a commander in chief. His positions on women's rights will alienate the female voters and his views on immigration will alienate the Latino vote, leaving very few voters left to vote for him.

  • Inflamatory history will hurt Santorum

    Rick Santorum is well known for statements he has made that have sparked a backlash from the public as a whole. These comments will undoubtedly hurt him going forward as the controversy surrounding this issue will likely be the first thing Americans recall about him. This hurt him in previous candidacies and will undoubtedly hurt him again.

  • The fact that an individual such as him is even being considered as a viable candidate is a problem.

    Santorum is a lunatic. He's completely obsessed with social issues, in which his views are completely backwards, outdated, and religiously founded (obviously). He would bring the USA to a theocracy which is absolutely NOT what the USA needs, especially at this point in world history. He lacks the fundamental understandings of the world and fails to comprehend the desires of the masses, which absolutely disqualifies him from not only President, but any position of political power, let alone, perhaps, an extremely virulent, loud, and backwards church.

  • Rick Santorum is not a viable presidential candidate.

    Rick Santorum has about as much of a chance of getting elected to President as Ronald McDonald or the Hamburgler. Santorum does not come close to speaking for the vast majority of the American people. He is wasting precious time, resources and money with his ego stroking run for President.

  • Absolutely no way.

    The only way Rick Santorum could be considered a viable presidential candidate is if our country is planning on regressing 30-40 years. Santorum represents the worst of the worst in American politics, particularly in regards to social issues. I don't think there's any way he'd even win. The only people that would likely vote for him are rich old homophobic white men.
