Should Santorum exit GOP race?

With the race to win the 2012 Republican nomination for president increasingly looking like a two-man race – Mitt Romney versus Newt Gingrich – we asked likely Republican voters whether they think Rick Santorum should withdraw from the GOP contest.

The answer: 46% said no, 37% yes, and 16% no opinion.

We asked the question on the night of the Florida primary in which Santorum garnered 13% of the vote versus 46% for Romney, 32% for Gingrich, and 7% for Ron Paul.

In our Jan. 31 national scientific telephone survey, we questioned 556 registered voters who said they’d vote in their state’s Republican primary or caucus.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 4%.

  1. No way. If we cannot vote for the most conservative person in the primary presidential race….then when?
    H e may or may not win the GOP race (although he still have chances), but we have to sent a clear message to the Republican establishment that conservative issue matters to us. If Santorum will exit the GOP race, all that we are left with will be one liberal and two moderates…
