Who Really Supports Santorum, and Why

Further evidence surfaces that Rick Santorum’s relative success in the Republican primary campaign, and Mitt Romney’s relative difficulty, has significant roots in Evangelical Protestantism.

Of course, it turns out that the immediate former Republican Party chairman, Michael Steele, expressly hoped to prolong the primary process and to create the need for a brokered convention (see here), and his efforts have also helped to produce the current situation.  (I was puzzled at the time by the eagerness of other Republicans to get rid of him, but I’m beginning to understand, and to sympathize with, their reasons.)
