Only One Person Shows Up to Santorum Event

According to Rick Santorum, one isn't the loneliest number after all.

Rick Santorum may have been thinking about retooling his campaign strategy as he sat in an Iowa restaurant with just one other supporter.

Santorum could have been disappointed when he showed up to his campaign stop at a restaurant and found only a single person waiting for him, but instead he decided to stay, have some lunch and chat with insurance agent Peggy Toft.

Well, maybe saying she is a Rick Santorum supporter is a little presumptuous. “I feel like I have to get all the facts,” she said according to Politico. “It helps a lot as far as grassroots. Should I decide to vote for him, I will get the word out.”

After some time, three more people came into the restaurant and decided to sit down and chat with the presidential hopeful. Four is still better than one, but that isn't many more than the 10 people who turned up at his stop in Panora earlier in the day. Maybe everyone in Iowa was busy on Monday?

Santorum remained optimistic, insisting that speaking to small numbers of people is what he wants in order to shore up votes. He may have a point as in 2011 he toured all 99 counties of Iowa talking to people in low population areas, a strategy that lead to him beating eventual GOP Mitt Romney in the state of Iowa.

"People don't understand. One guy in there said, 'I'll speak for you at the caucus,'" Santorum said. "That's maybe eight votes that you wouldn't otherwise get. Eight votes can make a big difference, as I know."

If he plans to keep up the strategy of wooing voters one at a time, he may not be ready in time for this presidential election.
