Men are leading Rick Santorum’s mad charge for the White House. Tom Matlack wants to know why.
A poll released Wednesday showed Rick Santorum maintaining his lead nationwide among likely Republican voters, topping his closest rival Mitt Romney by a margin of nine percentage points.
The poll from Quinnipiac University showed Santorum with the backing of 35% of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, compared to 26% for Romney.
Broken down further, the poll showed Santorum’s support was strongest among Republican men and evangelical Christians. Santorum led Romney 35% to 24% among men, and 45% to 19% among white evangelicals.
I’ve asking around and come up with 10 reasons that men prefer Rick Santorum for President in growing numbers, causing the man people are starting to call “Saint-orum” to take a commanding lead in the Republican Presidential nomination process and making an evangelical resident of the White House a real possibility. Here are ten reasons that guys I know gave me. Please add yours to the comment area.
#10 He is for unprotected sex.
#9 A woman’s place is home with the kids so the man of the house can shoot guns at large game or Muslims.
#8 Let’s face it the guy is cute and most of us are closeted homosexuals. We just want him.
#7 God. And we know there is just one.
#6 We’re unemployed.
#5 The guy in the White House now is named Obama and it just confuses us.
#4 His book put Hilary in her place, uppity bitch.
#3 Gay people make us nervous (because we are gay). Gay marriage is only okay inside a JackAss film that also involves ingesting the sperm of a farm animals.
#2 We don’t want health care.
#1 Women’s bodies are for men to do with what they like.
