Cato Institute v. Santorum


The Cato Institute (which mostly favors gay marriage) sharpens their attacks on Santorum. Fair enough. It's a horse race. But we were struck by this sentence in Michael Tanner's essay:

"After all, the Tea Party and 2010 elections were largely about economic issues and the desire to limit the size, cost, and intrusiveness of government. And those issues are not Santorum’s strong suit."

Who won Tea Party voters in Iowa would you guess?

Yup, Santorum snagged more of their votes than any other candidate, according to this CNN entrance poll.
