You'll Never Guess Who Republicans Want Romney to Pick as His VP
Republicans aren't over Rick Santorum yet. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals that
[e]ighteen percent of Republican registered voters picked former Pennsylvania Senator Santorum out of a list of 19 potential running mates for Romney, the party's presumptive presidential nominee in the November 6 general election.
Runners up include Marco Rubio, who was named by 17% of those surveyed, and Chris Christie and Jeb Bush who tied for third with 13% support.
I know I shouldn't be surprised. After all, he campaigned for months, won a handful of primary contests, and has even more name recognition at this present moment among Republicans than do well known figures like Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, or Chris Christie. But this just seems an awkward fit to me.
