Skip to comments.FOX NEWS CALL MARQUEE CONTEST OF SUPER TUESDAY: ROMNEY WINS OH by 1%
Posted on 03/06/2012 9:40:28 PM PST by Steelfish
Romney wins OH. Gingrich scrapes 15% of vote.
Wow, stupid Ohio.
Rick was outspent again just like MI and he made a solid run of it. FOX said that the spending deficit was 5-1 and Mi;t was up to his robocall BS again.
This is now a two man race.
The sad part is it’s probably too late now to stop RMoney. Either Newt or Santorum should’ve dropped out before Florida, or at the very latest before MI/AZ. The only plausible outcomes at this point are Romney winning or a brokered convention, and the latter is looking less and less likely as Slick Willard continues to rack up delegates.
You can have a Muslim bisexual socialist, or a Mormon one...?
Then we just have to go for a brokered convention.
Romney is thanking Gingrich who is proving much more worthy to him than the tens of millions dollars he and his super-pac has spent on this primary
In every presidential election since 1988, the GOP has given us a moderate as the nominee. The bastards are about to do it again. And by “bastards”, I mean the majority of GOP primary voters.
With superPAC and campaign money combined, Romney outspent Santorum and Gingrich and their superPACs 10-1. This is a LOSS for Romney, as Romney will get the same delegates that Santorum will get from OH (as long as those delegates are not those disbarred).
Romney will likely get his minimum number of delegates.
If the conservative vote hadn't been split in OH, Romney would have had a tough time of it.
Well, we keep fighting until Romney reaches the magic number then.
It wasn’t all bad. As of this afternoon, people here were swearing the Newt surge was going to win TN and ND wasn’t looking too good for Rick. There were some nice solid wins tonight and some delegate wins. The story tomorrow will be more about how weak Milt is by Ricks strong showing.
Haven’t you heard that this heralds the second coming of Newt? He is running the table, forget the actual results. This is Newt’s big moment to shine.
Get ready for the McCain redo...
The GOP needs exactly the opposite of Slick Romney, we need someone who is going to go toe to toe with his excellency and give him no quarter. No, RINO Romney will take the high road, he so dodges any form of controversy with his rhetoric about Obama one would believe he thinks he has the election won with a 25 percent plurality.
I fear he will not just take out the presidency from our grasp, he will actually lose seats in the Congress. Hopefully we pick up a few in the Senate but even were it to happen, the election is looking more like the end of America as we know it.
Fighting won't accomplish a whole lot from here on in.
Santorum wins working class voters and those without college degrees and who earn less than $100,000. This is one of the major demographics to win bell-weather states like OH and the mid-west in the general election. Santorum has now won in the South, West, and mid-West and came close to beating Romney in WA,MI, and now OH.
I am not being a smart alec... If the primary voters are giving us a moderate, don’t you think that means the majority of voters in the party are moderates?
We had a crappy lineup.. It’s as simple as that. I cannot stand Santorum.
Newt and Romney are Bilderberg puppets.
The stupid party is stupid. Enjoy the ass kicking in November....and a pox on everyone of those media shills and political hacks at Fox ...disgusting mouth breathers
He's got the same problem with Illinois and didn't make the ballot in DC.
As a result of Santorum's ineptness, Newt will actually come out 10 delegates ahead of him netted from Super Tuesday according to FoxNews.
It will make them listen to the Tea party and social conservatives. That’s why we keep fighting. And there is still the chance that Romney craters, given his propensity to put his foot in his mouth. And, Romney is running low on funds. There is opportunity in the South to make some significant gains for Santorum and Gingrich. We continue until convention irregardless of how Romney does, and the delegates vote as appointed.
Anybody But Obama for me. Country before candidate.
Absent Gingrich, Santorum would beat Romney one-on-one. Absent Santorum, Gingrich would beat Romney one-on-one. Together, they’re giving him the nomination.
A 1% loss despite being outspent 2:1 seems pretty competent to me.
We will have to take this to convention and try to draft Paul Ryan if nothing else.
He was outspent 12:1 when considering SuperPac and campaign funds. On campaign funds alone, Santorum was outspent 5:1.
There are more significant gains in the West and NE.
CA is winner-take all. NY and TX (the most significant state for conservatives ahead) are both proportional.
I’d vote for a can of beans vs Obama.
What really surprises me is that Rick was successful in tamping down the massive Newt surge that everyone was telling me that would happen. I am breathing a sigh of relief as we speak.
Have you not been paying attention? All the Newt supporters on FR do all day long is attack Santorum. They come across as pitbulls working for Romney sometimes.
Some of them are probably looking to a White House wedding for Newt
Which is exactly why neither deserves to be President
TX might not even have a primary. It might end up being decided by the party elite
The outcome tonight isn’t that bad. The primary schedule has largely favored Romney thus far. Just take a look at the states that have voted, MA, NH, AZ, ID, NV, FL, VT are all states Romney should have won. The southern states will not be kind to Romney. I expect this to go to a brokered convention.
Cant Rick get a recount ???
Steelfish: “Anybody But Obama for me. Country before candidate.”
I fully respect that, and I hope you respect those of us who simply won’t hold our noses for the GOPe nominee any longer. If Romney is the best we can do, I think we’re pretty much lost either way. Romney has said or done nothing credible to indicate he’s going to roll back big government. All I hear is how he’s the most electable. What a bunch of idiots! Would they vote for Stalin if Stalin was most electable Republican??? Apparently. I’ll ask again. What in the world does Romney even stand for? Oh, he’s Republican and he’s electable. Vote Romney! GEESH.
Texas primary is set for May 29th. It has the potential to be winner-take-all. In any case, Romney will not win Texas.
Better mitt then rick. mitt stands a better chance of beating obumber. Of course that isn’t saying much as rick would be the butt of jokes two days after the convention, which is to say he has no chance at all. Newt is our only hope. If the msm can make a comment by a radio host into a “republican war on woman” imagine what they would do to rick.
We could always draft Allen West at a convention. Or Herman Cain. Or Bolton. Now, wouldn’t that be a kick in the GOP-e’s gut.
Imagine a West/Rubio ticket. Or a West/Gingrich ticket. Or....a Palin/whoever.
It is now possible.
Romney is losing his chits.
Mi;t was up to his robocall BS again.
That didnt work in TN
I get calls about 3 times a day for the past week
Before that it was about once a day..
Mostly hate messages about Rick...
I know. Like stupid Philadelphia here. Oy.
ibytoohi: “Id vote for a can of beans vs Obama.”
You might just get your wish, because that’s about all we know about Romney. He’s wearing a “Republican” label. I think a can of bean might actually make a better candidate, because at least with beans the label lists the contents and nutritional content. With Romney, I honestly have no idea what he stands for, but he governed like a Democrat.
Your choice = a CULT LEADER (When living in MA, “Bishop” Romney, was the highest ranking Mormon in the entire state and held a position equivalent in the CULT to a Roman Catholic cardinal!) or a COMMUNIST! Before God, in good conscience I can not and will not vote for either!
Hey, ho, way to go O-hi-o...
