Rick Santorum would fail in the general election because he does not appeal to anybody outside his very narrow right wing conservative Christian base.  He has done fairly well in the primaries as an anti-Romney candidate that plays on the irrational fears that Romney is a member of a cult religion or that he is not a genuine conservative Christian.

Santorum highlighted this by using an Etch-A-Sketch in his campaign speeches and saying that his policies are written on his heart and not just for show during an election.That is probably true, and that is what scares me the most about Santorum.

The result of such heartfelt positions is that Santorum will not compromise with others who feel differently.

Many of his heartfelt positions are determined by his heartfelt religion. That is fine for him, but for those not of his religion, we may not wish to have to have his beliefs enshrined into law, nor take to the fight to prevent the enshrining of his religion into law.

Listening to Santorum on the campaign trail is like listening to somebody running for pastor in chief, or at least somebody who wishes to take the nation back into the 19th century with an outdated religious understanding of the world, imposing his religious views onto the nation.

Don't vote for "Pastor" Rick Santorum

No, Republicans should know that Santorum will not fare well in a general election. He is quite scary to all but a small section of the American political body.
