I take the contrary view that Santorum would actually get a significantly larger turnout from the base of the Republican party than Mitt and help them in the House elections in spite of losing to Obama miserably overall.
I'm basing this off of absolutely no insight whatsoever, it's possible I suppose that there are a lot fewer split tickets than I estimate there are.
I used to pay attention to politics but I've sadly lost hope. You have the Democrats (Coke) and the Republicans (Pepsi). Take your pick. What one part of your life one party does not want to control the other one does. They are both doomed to repeat the mistakes made by every nation in the past. I know this should inspire me to be Lirva like but I can only say **** it. The system is so corrupt we are on a greased slide to ruin.
