    kos says their goal is in the text of this post -- to suppress votes for Romney.  People will vote for their next favorite candidate or not vote at all.  It's not hard to get people to stay home in a primary and especially not this primary where the electorate is already unenthusiastic.  The number of people who vote in primaries is already low, especially independents.

    And of course the goal will also be the same goal they'll be working at from now until November -- drive up the negatives on Romney, their presumed opponent in the general election.

      campaign is not thinking that Santorum could win as a result.

      You gonna stick with that?

      Every election either the democrats lose or the republicans lose. But in every election there is always the same winner. And he drives a Mercedes.

        I think they have at least two goals in running those ads, as I explained earlier.

        They might have a goal of getting a win for Santorum but I have never heard any of those organizations express that goal.  Have you?

          Santorum wins.

          Fact.

          SO whether they say it outright or not that is the reality, regardless of any other fantasies some may hold.

          Every election either the democrats lose or the republicans lose. But in every election there is always the same winner. And he drives a Mercedes.
