McAmnesty, Paul and Huckabust cut a backroom deal so there is no hope for Romney, unless he wins >50%

Good news - one of my best friends is from Montana and he’s for Romney - some Mormons in the state, but he’s not one.

Agreed. West Virginia exposed the MCCain-Huckebee strategy beyond all doubt.

Montana is winner take all and you do not have to get over 50%.

If this is a causus and a candidate has to have more than 50% to win, then a deal will be cut. McCain will most likely win this one. Perfectly legit to make the deal. This has been done in Iowa for years (until the GOP wimped out and got rid of the 15% threshold rule).

My guess is that Romney ends up kicking McCain’s rear today.

I hope you are right. Otherwise there will be another deal made amongst the tag team.

Excellent! Although I’m sure McScampaign has a fix worked up for Montana regardless.

Only West Virginia had the runoff for the majority, plurality wins everywhere else.

Like the deal MCain & Huckabee just pulled in West Va.!!!!

I’m going to sleep - have not enough medication for this *McCain Landslide* cr*p from the media.

McCain has 102 delegates, Mitt has 93, H’bee 79 & uncommitted 23. How the h*ll is that a landslide?????

Well, if that is the case, then a deal will not be cut.

Just this moment got back from voteing in NY. The sight of that pathetic line of names of Republican candidates is a sadder and more frightening thing than I ever thought I would live to see.

God help us.

My guess is that Romney gets crushed, almost across the board. Game set match, McCain will get destroyed in the general election

What’s to keep McCain from cutting a deal regardless of a majority requirement? Can’t they change once committed as soon as they see the writing on the wall?

Romney supporters are going to feel a lot better about McCain getting the 235 delegates from winner-take-all states New York, New Jersey, Arizona and Connecticut if Romney ends up getting 173 delegates from winner-take-all states Delaware, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and Utah.

I believe those were delegates to a state convention.

Recent exit polling in Arizona has it tied 36% to 36% Romney/mccain. How sweet it would be to see queeg lose his own state.

Considering it had Paul first and then McCain, Romney, I should have been suspicious.

Romney is proving his ability to unite Republicans. Unfortunately, he seems to unite them against himself.
