  • Three very quick comments on Santorum’s departure

    By Shmuel Rosner

    April 10, 2012 | 4:46 pm

    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. ‎
