Newt Gingrich "I can support Rick Santorum" (and what it means for Ron Paul)

Despite all Newt Gingrich has said regarding his plans to stay in the Republican presidential race there are still rumors of Gingrich's plans for dropping out. The rumors are now pointing to a Gingrich endorsement of Santorum or even a Santorum/Gingrich ticket. Although Mitt Romney is at the head of the race, Gingrich is not one of the people giving in to the wide array of recent GOP establishment endorsements for Romney.

Sunday, April 1, 2012, Gingrich was on Face the Nation on CBS News where he stated that although Romney is ahead in delegates, he is nowhere near the 1,144 delegates needed to become the official GOP nominee. Gingrich's staff (those that remain) have stated that their group may work with Santorum to stop Romney from clinching the nomination:

"If Rick Santorum becomes the nominee, I'll help him," Gingrich said. "We are all committed to defeating Barack Obama. We think his re-election would be a disaster for the country."

Of course, Gingrich is ignoring one thing. If the delegates become unbound, how likely are they to vote for Gingrich?

All non-RP candidate endorsements will end up with Romney.
