That is all!!
Mr. “Frontrunner” was opposed by 75% of Republicans. Some frontrunner.
If the others would step aside Santorum would thump Romney.
Make that 118!
From tonight on, Romney is going to lose ground.
Santorum/_______________. Not Bachmann, nor Palin.
No matter the final results, the conservatism total beat the RINO and the nutcase big time.
Not Gingrich either. Not for President OR VP.
Bachmann for Speaker!
If Perry/Bachmann stay in, Romney is the nominee.
If they drop out, either Santorum or Gingrich will be the nominee.
We’ll see who they care about, themselves or the country.
I like Bachmann VERY much but know she is not going to make it.
She will help keep the front runners on their toes, though.
A front runner who does not win is a loser.
God Bless America and President Rick Santorum and his family!!!!! I am so excited! This night was what I have been waiting for. A true MORAL CONSERVATIVE!!!! A great night for America!!!!
We have Bachmann, Santorum, Perry, Gingrich and, to a degree, Ron Paul. All of them draw from pretty much the same crowd and all of their supporters together outnumber the Marble Man - Romney’s supporters.
I’m going to be plenty ticked off if 2008 is repeated and a “moderate” is nominated and then goes down to defeat against Obama. I wish all the conservatives wold get together, decide which one of them is going against Romney and pool their resources and supporters.
“Bachmann for Speaker!”
From what I hear she may have trouble defending her district. She had better not be to lax.
Well see who they care about, themselves or the country.
Agreed. They need to take one for the team.
If Perry/Bachmann stay in, Romney is the nominee.
Bachmann has come out and said shes not droping out. However, her numbers are going to drop like a rock and the money will dry up. She’ll be out in the next round or two.
Perry has lots of money to burn.. He should bail, but he’ll stay in.
I know what you’ll probably say to Santorum/Giuliani or Santorum/Christie but living up here in NY one of those combos would bring in a lot of East Coast votes. Grab NJ and Obama is bye-bye.
It’s all gonna come together. this process is a bit stressing most of the time
Go figure. top of the hour news.
Perry is headed home to “think about it”..
Christie said “no.” I really wouldn’t have a problem with either of them. I just see Michelle B and Rick Perry as the weakest links.
Down to 37 votes.....
37 point difference. It’s going to be a tie. The GOP is split right down the middle——> Conservative vs. Party Establishment.
Just get the Ronulans out of there.
Sincere question: Are there any states besides Virginia where Santorum isn’t going to appear on the ballot?
Has the deadline passed for all states?
Santorum amazing run from nowhere. He has plenty of positives but after seeing him go one on one with Paul he seems weak debater (Almost anyone can beat Paul in debate). Republicans need a good debater to beat Obama.
If I were a Republican nominee I wouldn’t even AGREE to a debate. The MSM rigs them from the start, what GOP candidate gets a fair chance in that sort of environment?
I agree 100%. Newt took on the Media Establishment and look how quick they turned him upside down.
I like BOTH Ricks .... I can vote for either one ... I’m still Rick Perry
Obama won’t debate and the Obama media will cover for him . He would never take on Newt but his media would be trashing Neet for his
Messy personal life .
So , as long as mittens or Paul or huntsman are not our candidate we will be okay.
I still think the evil bastard will bow out.
Romney up by 62 with 98%.
****** “ Obama is NO debater. He is a practiced, programmed, narcissist who can read the teleprompter with spirit... “ *****
I can’t stand listening to him on or off the Teleprompter ... my poor Radio has suffered my wrath for 3 years...
His message is not in his words or his delivery, it is in his actions.
Whatever he does it works by making some people pass out or tingle up their leg.
Mittens suddenly up by 41 :(
Damn! Santorum is going to gain more and more momentum from this day on.
Now people are going to pay more attention to Santorum and when they compare him with Romney, they’ll chose Santorum by a huge margin.
Romney is a fake. Santorum is Real!
Santorum up by......5!
Santorum just hit some home runs on FNC.
Romney says obama is a nice guy but...
Santorum just blamed obama for the economy.
To clarify: With 99% of the precincts in Santorum is ahead of the most liberal Governor in the history of the republic by FIVE VOTES.
Only twenty-five precincts still to report in.
I hope Rick wins by one vote.
Now up by 34 with 99% in....!
No matter what, it’s bad news for Santorum because he needed to not only win, but he needed Romney to have a bad night. Because moving on, Romney has the advantage. Unless Romney is upset in New Hampshire, I dont see any way Santorum can stop him. Newt has a chance to stop him in the south. But Santorum doesnt have the organization or money to make a serious push in SC or FL.
Her district will be eliminated in 8 years. There’s no way Minnesota can keep up with the population growth of the South.
If Mitt Romney is nominated the Republican Party is finished.
Santorum up by 18 votes with only two precincts still out.
Doubt it. her district is the redest of red in Minnesota. houses still going up just north of my place.
However.. we are thinking about leaving. so..
Barring any radical upsets in future primaries, my ideal ticket from the current field is:
