Nice Colorado Win for Santorum by 5 percentage points. Last time Romney won CO in 2008 with 60% of the vote.

Lets see if Romney turns his carpet bombing campaign against Santorum. I think part of the reason he lost tonight, is the fact that their may be a backlash against Romney for using that technique in Florida.

Nice! Santorum now has 4 States. Romney needs to be thrashed decisively on Super Tuesday. Time for Gingrich to gracefully bow out or else Romney wins Super Tuesday on a divided conservative vote.

Alot of our FREEPER friend’s heads are exploding. It is going to get even more ugly around here. The smears and negativity towards an honorable, moral, principled man is going to go full bore. Santorum as the front runner is going to get it from here and media.

Since Romney won CO last time, losing CO this time is an even larger defeat for him.

Watch Romney polish up his smear machine.

I will vote for whoever our nominee is - unless its Romney. I don’t like the Alinsky tactics he has used and probably will continue to use in this race. He’s no better than Obama in this aspect and it makes me sick.

Go Rick! Go Newt! I’m fine with either one of them.

You bet! I was flamed earlier on when I posted stuff saying that Gingrich was NOT the alternative to Romney.

Feb. 28 on Super Tuesday will be determinative. Gingrich needs to honorably drop out. Gingrich trails women voters by 20-points, Obama thrashes Gingrich by over 12-points in Gallup-USA, and Gingrich has that Cap-and-Trade and $1.6m FreedieMac albatross strung over his neck.

“Watch Romney polish up his smear machine.”

Exactly, that seems to be his standard when he feels threatened, is to turn vicious attack ads at his challenger. Look at Florida, he doesn’t confront his opponents with better arguments, but with attack ads.

I think it is becoming evident to GOP voters. Mitt has a very dark side.

Just shrug it off and keep fighting for Rick. If they want to take their fight against Rick into the gutter with irrational smears, that is their problem. I'm not playing.

Santorum has two firsts.

First to win a state in 2012: IOWA

First to win three contests on one night.

This will be good for PR, name visibility, additional endorsements and most importantly contributions which he needs to build up in February to then go and further beat the snot out of Mitty Romney in March. PS when are the next debates, anyone know?? Git out the popcorn.

Just in on CNN: The Colorado GOP Chair says Santorum Wins CO! 78% reporting. El Paso County in CO puts Santorum over the top 1300 margin in this county.

In my local, it was 47 votes for Santo; 21 votes for Gingrich; 14 votes for Romney LoL and RuPaul 9 votes.

Once I saw that El Paso was going to be late reporting after the Denver Metro and Boulder counties already reported, I knew it was over for Romney.

Mitt already had one attack ad against Rick, but it sure didn’t work this time. Haha.

Mitt can only attack, because he hasn’t much to offer.

I think that will start to become clearer during the next few weeks, as he turns up the attacks on Santorum.

And of course Newt never had to undergo such, right?

Up to now Rick was floating around the edges and never figured in the fray, but now there will be much exposed about Mr. Pork. Lets see how he fares as the most recent threat to Mittens.

I said several months ago that I thought the nomination would not be won in the first ballot. Last night just proves that this thing is wide open.

In fact I will go out on a limb and say that there is a 50% chance that the candidate may not be one of the four left.

Just proves that conservatives are not sheep. We don't care who the media (even conservative media) thinks is best.

My biggest fear is that when it comes convention time, and Myth is sitting with 40%+ of the delegates. Watch for some dim tactics where floor delegates are bullied by the GOP establishment in the subsequent ballots. Get the popcorn ready, it is going to be an exciting summer.

BTTT! It was one thing to see Rove go all in for Mitt and not all that shocking, but I am VERY surprised that Coulter has been over the top vocal for Mitt. What, she is all about the win now? Mitt seems to have the money, the organization, the nice hair and a good debate style so let's support him? This has been a very eye opening primary season if nothing else. Some true colors are being shed.

Anyone who challenges Mitt gets smeared. It doesn’t matter who - just that they challenged Mitt. That is all I need to know about voting for Mitt...

Between Newt & Santorum...I could go either way. I prefer Newt, but certainly wouldn’t attack Santorum over him.

Not sure if I like this or not...
On one hand I’d rather have Rick than Mitt. At least Rick is a SOCIAL conservative (not much of a track record when it comes to fiscal conservatism). There isn’t a conservative bone in Mitt’s body.

On the other hand I think it will hurt Gingrich by further splitting the anti-romney vote. This will ultimately help Romney :(

there’s nothing “honorable” about wasteful earmark spending. Rick Santorum is the king of that. Social conservatism is a nice START but...

IT’S THE ECONOMY STUPID! (not calling you stupid btw :))

I agree that earmarks were unnecessary but it was done by everyone until early 2006. McCain was the biggest anti-earmark guy out there but still took some. I don’t think earmarks are going to be a big negative for Santorum. Now Santorum is going to have to give his economic policy so everyone understands what he will do. I don’t have any idea what this primary will conclude. Any of them probably has a chance. The scariest thing of all is that McCain lost 13 states after Florida and still went on to win the nomination. That really freaks me out to be honest with you.
