Wow, that’s a strong Anti-Romney (anti-establishment) vote from the State that gave us Sebelius.

Excellent. Romney got crushed. Less than half the votes Santorum got.

I voted @ Shawnee Mission East High School. There wasn’t a single Gingrich sign up. The place was littered with Santorum signs, and Ron Paul made a visit.

Rick got more votes than the other three combined. When Mitt wins, the “not Romneys” usually get at least 60% combined.

71% of the people in the state live in Wichita, Manhattan/Topeka or KC and should just move their asses to California or Taxechusetts.

Take your pick. It really doesn’t matter to the rest of us.

Thank you God! State number 9 all over the country. This guy has just got to be President. The country would be on the right track immediately.

Rick has now won in Iowa, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri,
North Dakota, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Kansas and is second only to Romney in delegates.

It will be interesting to see how Santorums huge victory in Kansas affects the polls in Alabama and Mississippi. If Newt can not win in these 2 conservative states, it might be time to take one for the team and endorse Santorum while we still have a chance to defeat Romney by uniting the anti-mittens vote.

If Newt goes, Romney will win.

Newt voters are not voting for Santorum.

If Newt is on the Texas ballot, I’m voting for him...if not Santorum it is !! Romney will have to wait until November for my vote if he prevails at the convention... perhaps unless it’s Romney/Rubio... paging Alan West...pick up the Romney courtesy phone.... yea, a Romney/West campaing I would enthusiastically endorse... if it has to be Romney at the top.

This Newt voter won’t vote for Santorum (though I won’t vote for Romney either).

I apologize for speaking for 'Newt voters'. I believe most won't, but I could be wrong.

I know I won't vote for either Santorum or Romney in the primary.

My kids attended SM Northwest years ago. At that time East was where all the rich kids went so I would have expected that area to be filled with Romney signs. Of course everything changes over the years. Have lots of friends up there and argued long and hard but was only able to get a few of them to check out Newt’s qualifications versus the other candidates.

There is no way the situation is that simple. I voted for Newt today, but if he had not been on the ballot, I would have voted for Santorum. No Mittens!

Romney blows no doubt, but if it came down between him and Santorum, it's fair to say Romney would at least fare a better chance than Santorum at ousting our radical Kenyan infiltrator. No clue how Santorum is going to gain much traction beyond hardcore SoCons.

For me it is, I can't stand either one of them.

In the General I will vote straight GOP but in the primary, I will not choose between Romney and Santorum.

It can only help him. Everybody loves a winner!

Thomas Sowell and other intellects believe Newt is the best hope we have. I'll gladly have those who can only mock others on one side and those who agree with Sowell on the other. Every time one of us resorts to mocking others for their difference of opinions, Saul Alinsky and Obama take up a little more room on FR. But alas, some folks find it easier to mock than debate.

For you it is simple, but your original comment was “Newt voters are not voting for Santorum.” My point was and is that all of the Newt supporters do not have the same priorities as you, any more than they have the same priorities as I.

Great quote by Burke.

Yes, I apologized for stating such in another post.

It was presumptuous on my part to do so.

I do, however, think, from the comments I see on FR, many feel as I do.

I hate to admit I now live in Kansas, born in Texas, lived many years in Idaho, and imported from Colorado. I’m sorry to say there are a great many stupid (heads up their butts) agricultural cowboys in Kansas. You can see that because they likewise elected Sibelius. To our credit, Obama stole her off to destroy our health care system. Kansas knows more about the KU scores than they do about presidential politics, and they just don’t care to become more intellectual about the world around them. As you can imagine, I don’t fit in with most of them, and most of my friends are here at FreeRepublic.

In my little caucus, 186 total, Santorum took 81, Mr. Newt took 54, Romney took 34, Paul took 13, and believe it or not, 4 uncommitted. Now, who bothers to go to a Caucus and comes out uncommitted? As I said, stupid!. Unfortunately, we cannot change stupid. Stupid is as stupid does, sounds familiar doesn’t it? Maybe the writer of that phrase was from Kansas. I am so disappointed in Kansas, I wish I could move, but my husband was born and raised here, and this is where we have our roots laid down. However, after watching this primary season, many of the other states have been just as stupid. Our electorate is all for themselves, and not for the Country.

There is no better candidate than Mr. Newt, and I am offended when I hear we have a weak field. We have two complete fakes who call themselves conservative, and one old nut job who no one asks to leave the race because they fear he will run as an Independent and actually take votes away from the republicans.

What more can I say? I just hope and pray Alabama and Mississippi are smarter than Kansas.
