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.

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).

At this rate you probably won't have a brokered convention (which is what I've wanted).

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.

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.

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.

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.

In before the posts blaming Newt. This is shaping up to be another 2008 where the worst possible candidate, a centrist/moderate who literally stands for nothing, is squeaking out a victory. In this case, Romney isn't even bothering to run to the right. He's pretty much unapologetic about his centrist/moderate politics of the past. I refuse to blame either Newt or Santorum voters. The people to blame here are the GOP leaders and media cheerleaders who are doing everything they can to get Romney the nomination. I ask them. What in the world does your stinking excuse for a candidate stand for???? Electability? Is that it? It agonizes me to post this, but I made a touch decision after Florida. There is no way I'm going to vote for Romney, ever. If this country is going to go down the tubes, better let the chips fall where may now. I'd rather the GOP was torn asunder than vote for such a guy who holds virtually none of the political ideals I hold dear. I'm NOT going to vote for Obama lite, so GOPe...go choke on your candidate!

Uh... no. Santorum failed in OH because of campaign incompetence. He lost many delegates because he didn't have his paperwork in order. That wouldn't have changed if he had "won" Ohio.

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.

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.

Well, GeronL, you do absolutely nothing to help bring the two conservative candidates, Santorum and Gingrich, together by ridiculing the Newt supporters. I respect both Newt and Santorum voters and won't demean either of them. We are on the same side in this battle against the true moderates and uninformed conservative Repubs who vote Romney simply because they think he's the most electable.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

ibytoohi: “I’d 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.

GeronL: "Have you not been paying attention? All the Newt supporters on FR do all day long is attack Santorum." Both sides need to chill out, because we're all supposed to be conservatives here. Newt voters like him, because they think he's the most conservative candidate. Santorum voters think the same thing of Santorum. We need to stop tearing each other apart and focus on the immediate threat: Romney. Personally, I'd ardently support either Newt/Santorum or Santorum/Newt, and I'd be pleased with either of them if they dropped out and threw their support to the other guy. The two campaigns need to start talking about what is best for this country and do the right thing! The conservatives need to compromise and cooperate now before they throw this to Romney.
