Newt wants YOU to vote Santorum in Michigan

I heard Newt Gingrich say on Saturday that he expects Romney will likely have a good day on Tuesday. This I believe is Newt’s subtle way of releasing his supporters to vote for Rick Santorum in Michigan where he is polling 8% and also low in Arizona. Newt is sagacious enough to know that while he cannot ask his voters to do this, he knows that Santorum dealing Romney's campaign a mortal wound on Tuesday would be the best chance of making this a one on one race between himself (a strong conservative) and Santorum (a strong conservative).

Mitt blew $50 million of his own personal fortune in 2008 chasing his legacy. That’s a very significant percentage of his total estimated $250 million estimated net worth – and that’s not all liquid. From that we can presume that he is not about to make another such ridiculous gamble of the family fortune this time around as his smear campaign is currently being funded largely by "super-PACS".

The bottom line is that if he loses Michigan, you will quite possibly see a substantial quantity of that PAC money disappear. That’s the way it typically works with PACS. They typically chase performance as their real motive is to be in the good graces of whoever they see as likely to be in power.

So not only would Mitt Romney look severely weakened, his cash transfusion upon which he depends to do his dirty work would be as well.

With Romney’s inevitability mantra out of the way, the PACS would likely diversify between Santorum who is strong in the mid-west and possibly some of the northern states and Newt Gingrich who is strong in the south and West (where conservatives should coalesce around Newt to continue to bury Romney as long as he remains in the race).

This is how I know that Newt Gingrich wants his supporters to vote for Rick Santorum in Michigan and Arizona. His 8% do him no good there.  Newt is not even campaigning in Michigan.  As much as Newt supporters may want to actually vote for their candidate, most will understand that they are not helping their candidate at all by voting for him.  It's ironic but a vote for Newt in Michigan and Arizona is a vote for Mitt Romney. 

After this Tuesday I will be saying the same thing to states where Newt Gingrich is the leader such as Georgia.  In some of these southern and western states, a vote for Santorum would be a vote for Mitt Romney.  I personally voted for Newt Gingrich here in Florida because he was the conservative with the larger margin going into the election.

At this juncture this election is one of conservatives against the minority liberals who seek to once again hi-jack this party and it is bigger than either Rick or Newt as individual candidates.

It will be fun to listen to the pundits on Wednesday talk about what we just did. None of this would have been possible without the grass-roots capabilities provided by websites like http://www.Freerepublic.com and social networking.

Let’s go and make some history together.

Here’s the strategy:
