    Our Israel Factor panel was never overly generous with candidate Santorum - as you can ‎see in the graph below. The panel thought Santorum was too hawkish, too religious. ‎No one would doubt his support for Israel, but such support is apparently not enough. ‎

  • Bad religion

    By Rob Eshman

    March 7, 2012 | 5:54 pm

    Religion should take election years off.

    As soon as the presidential campaigns get under way, religion should just go to Cancun and wait them out.

    Otherwise, inevitably, it gets used.

  • Gingrich wins Republican primary in Georgia, TV networks project

    March 6, 2012 | 5:08 pm

    Newt Gingrich won the Republican presidential primary in his home state of Georgia, TV networks projected on Tuesday, giving the former congressman his second victory of the primary season.

    Gingrich, who spent much of the last week campaigning on his home turf, last won a victory in January in South Carolina. Georgia has the biggest number of delegates of the states holding nominating contests on Super Tuesday and Gingrich had said he had to win the state to keep his campaign viable.
