How can Republicans Claim to have a smart audience when Rick Santorum Almost won the Nomination?

I don't vote democrat or republican but Republicans cannot claim that their base on average is that smart when a man who is more concered about banning porn and birth control than the economy almost won the nomination.

    uncertain in case you have observed, yet Santorum did not "surprisingly much win the nomination." if reality be told it wasn't even close, with Santorum's 267 delegates in evaluation to Romney's 1480. and you declare the Republican's aim audience is dumb? enable me say one factor here, DUMB would be those drones that pass into the voting sales area on November 6 and vote for Barack Obama. ADDENDUM: Perry, Cain, Bachmann and Santorum, ANY of those could make an exceptional president.

    Well his state hasent suffered less than any outher but people quickly realised it had nothing to do with him. Ya talk radio host and most tv people on the republican side tend to use motivational type speaches where the dems tend to use comunity organization speaches on social issues. A motivation tool is to project. Good self esteam to viewers. Where social issues tend to make people want to help outhers. But ya I'm an independant so I view both sides of the spectrum. But hay with out the two party system we would either be to left or to right the mix of the two keep things in check and balanced. But I know what your saying the republicans have been sucking up to there voters to much cuz they want to sway us to vote for em.

    yeah

    Rick Santorum got his popularity because of Rupert Murdock's large donation and support at the very beginning of the race.If you look at the voting history you will see that 89% of Santorum voters in Iowa made a decision to vote for Santorum just 2 days before the elections.That is when Murdoch injected big money to support Snatorum campaign and they bought ads.He even joined Twitter to support Santorum.

    Then Ricky slowed down once they realized Romney is far ahead and eventually he gave up.

    He came about as close as Kusinich has to the Democrat nominee. But hey, nice straw man.

    he never came close to winning. i agree that he wasn't the smartest of the nominees, but it was just a phase republicans went through. romney was bound to be the nominee.
