Missouri is Santorum 45, Romney 32, Paul 19

Did I read that Nevada, Missouri and Minnesota’s caucuses will award NO delegates?
No, MO has a primary, but delegates are chosen in March at a separate caucus. However, the winner of the primary is odds on favorite to take the caucus.
the most important thing about this potential blowout...
it destroys several myths:
1. that Romney is inevitable
2. that Romney is the 2nd choice of everyone
3. that Romney was going to sweep February
Agreed. Would love to see a good solid conservative turnout here. MO is CRITICAL in November...can’t let the big cities turn us to Obama.
But...but...the poll can’t be right. Can it? LOL!
The only thing Santorum has dominated was the electorate in PA that threw him out of office.
Maybe he needs Arlen Specter to prop up his campaign.
Is it just me, or is this an odd primary season? One after another rises then falls, then another comes along, and process is repeated...
Didn’t Missouri go for McCain in 2008? It was close, though. I seem to recall going to bed that night not knowing who won Missouri ... but by then it didn’t matter.
Yes it is odd in that America has no real journalists in the WH press corpse that will hold the Kenyan accountable for anything.
Missouri was about the only purple state that went for McCain, but you are right, it was extremely close.
Yes it is odd. Santorum is now on the rise, and Gingrich is waning, but that could reverse over the course of February.
I also wonder if the news cycle is affecting things. I’m thinking of Dick Morris’ old theory that whatever issue is hot that day drives people to vote for one candidate over another. Suddenly Obama is attacking the Catholic church, and Santorum is clearly the best candidate on Catholic and religious conservative issues. Meanwhile the economy is reported to be doing better, which is perceived as Romney’s strong suit. If the economy got totally better, why would anyone vote for Romney who’s obviously weak on other kinds of conservatism? Newt is probably the guy they’d go to for national security, because he’s perceived as the toughest guy, or for a general conservative grab bag if one particular common issue wasn’t big in the news.
Mo went for McCain only b/c the Fiend already had enough electoral votes to win. If Mo was needed to decide the Presidency, it would have been stolen.
It should have been Santorum all along. We in Pa. know that Rick is an outstanding, fearless candidate. The only person I’d feel more confident with in the Oval Office is Sarah Palin, and she’s not on my ballot. Bob
Rick won 4 out of 5 races in PA. Even Reagan lost a race and later won a landslide.
Santorum said Alito would not be a Justice if it weren’t for Specter. Specter was very effective at being the head of the Judicial Committee.
Rick Santorum realized that the Dems would have control of the Judicial Committee, if the GOP didn’t have the majority in the Senate, and he thought Specter would have the better chance of winning, as well as being an effective head of the Judicial Committee.
and the sound of screeching brakes is heard as Romney does a Uey and goes after the choirboy. Garlic popcorn, please.
