After following Rick Santorum for over these months, I realize that this man is really having a tough time catching up other candidates during the 2012 Presidential Election. Even he himself has acknowledged “We’re at the back of the pack”. In the recent major poll he still placed seventh of eight GOP candidates—and he has been in this place for a rather long time. Compared to the other strong candidates, the former Pennsylvania senator has got little money and few followers.
Basically, Rick defends himself as a “fully conservative”, which is something he takes the most pride in. Unlike others taking a strong stand in view of economies, he largely focuses on American families and its traditional value. His campaign seems to be strictly tied to the three states: Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
The little name recognition he has beyond Pennsylvania could be the biggest challenge to his presidential aspirations.
Rick Santorum’s passion for the presidential campaign is beyond doubt, for he just finished his tour of all Iowa 99 countries on last Wednesday. And his busy everyday schedule also makes him being one of the hardest-working candidates–—but unfortunately, American people are just not into him. Months ago, Mitt Romney was the hottest topic, then came Rick Perry, and now it is Herman Cain. Performance of Michelle Bachman is also under public’s attention. But Senator Rick is always the guy that people talk about the least, despite of his efforts and relatively good performance during the last few presidential debates.
Maybe you should turn to focus more on the not-so-good economic condition in America nowadays, instead of emphasizing how many children you’ve got every time you show up.
