New Hampshire Crowd Call Rick Santorum A ‘Bigot’

Rick Santorum Tries to Maintain Momentum; Raises $1 Million in Support For His Campaign

During his final campaign event before the state’s primary vote on Tuesday, Rick Santorum was greeted by a crowd of hundreds of rallyists outside his campaign rally at Jillian’s Billiards Club in Manchester, New Hampshire, calling him a ‘bigot’ as he walked past them along with some of his campaign staffers into an adjacent building, globalpost said.

According to his website, Santorum expected he would be labeled as such or even worse after he stood in favor of 2004's Federal Marriage Amendment, which moved to limit marriages in America to mean those between one man and one woman.

But he "understood this issue was far too important to the future of our society not to be debated before the American public."

Five days ago, at a college convention sponsored by New England College, Santorum was also booed by an audience of 200 students when he brought up his opposition to same sex marriage, comparing it to polygamy.

He defended his position by saying “Because I believe we are made the way God made man and woman, and man and woman come together to have a union to produce children, which keeps civilization going, and provide the best environment for children to be raised.”

In the latest Rasmussen poll, Santorum has 21 percent of likely Republican votes in second place next to Mitt Romney who has 29 percent.
