29. This makes Ron Paul the kingmaker of the GOP presidential campaign.
If Ron Paul drops out and his supporters split with half of his supporters going for Santorum, and the other half go for Gingrich, Santorum will effectively tie with Romney in a "winner takes nothing" campaign that stretches out the GOP presidential candidate nominating race until their convention.
As it is now, Romney can't get above the 40 percent approval rating of his own party. Nearly guaranteeing a long campaign battle to become the nominee.
Michael Steele said the other day that this was to be expected this year when the GOP changed their rules for the nominating process last year. He acted like it was all planned this way by design.
He also said that this year's format was to provide the GOP party with more transparency.
Thus proving for all time that Steele is a frickin' moron because the GOP party does not work well with transparency.
They work better when they go behind closed doors in their caucuses and come out of the room united, rather than doing their political infighting in the public arena for all to see.
