Possible outcome of a 2008 election with a 

third party run
Possible outcome of a 2008 election with a third party run against the McCain-Huckabee-Soros-Clinton-Obama Cabal.

There are a lot of angry conservatives tonight who were denied their third choice.

For all Romney's faults, he's shown himself to be a man of class and decency who doesn't delight in pi**ing on the base. He's also shown he can organize, raise money and compete.

A third party candidacy could result in a deadlocked election where McCain-Huckabee would have to make meaningful concessions to win. At the very least, it would give conservatives someone to show up and vote for at the top of the ticket to save conservatives down ticket.

Intensity of blue(R)/red(D)/green(3) shades indicate probable percent of vote.

Super Tuesday Scorecard

McCain - OK (41), NY (101), DE (18), NJ (52), CT (30), IL (70), AZ (53)

Huckabee - AR (35), AL (48), WV (30), TN (55), GA (72)

Romney - UT (36), MA (43), ND (26), MT (25), ?MN (41)

? - Leading Caucus, but hasn't won yet.

NOTE:  The number in (##) represents Total number of delegates for the state, not the number won.

Despite all the gloom and doom on Romney, McCain is still far from being able to win the nomination.

It doesn’t look like Mitt is doing well in California, though only 1% counted. The polls had Mitt far ahead in California, yet McCain is ahead in the voting! Just like Florida! So how does that work??!!

We won’t know a winner for several hours. Don’t give up hope yet.

"Fox makes me sick."

Why are you watching? And if you're not watching, why are you bitching? It is just getting beyond old at all of the bashing of Fox around here. Would you rather have only CNN? MSNBC?

Do you need to have your opinions and your opinions only parroted to you 24/7 or you can't handle it? Fox is much better than the alternatives.

A small caveat, Romney may over take mcCain in Georgia because large counties are not in yet, especially Fulton. Georgia is a winner take all by District.

For once I’m proud of the GOP in Montana. This state is so close to turning blue.

Most CA polls I saw, had it neck and neck. But you can’t tell anything with 1% of the vote.

If conservatives were to get their act together they could pick the candidate. Huck has been the spoiler here.

When divided, the house falls!

And there are only 30 districts in GA, but they have a decent delegate count.

For the most part, I am no longer watching. I have it on tonight and it is just reinforcing why I have largely turned them off. Most of my news now comes through the net.

This is a straightup question: in thirty words or less how has Brit Hume disappointed?

Brit is transparently pro-McCain and anti-Romney. Even when Romney was up to speak, Brit stated “lets go over to Mitt Romney and listen to whatever he has to say.”

Yo can check here for votes by county. Note the large counties.

Georgia delegation info:

“Delegate Selection: Winner-Take-All (by district and statewide), ; 72 total delegates - 10 base at-large / 39 re: 13 congressional districts / 3 party / 20 bonus”

I’ll take your opinion under advisement.

Okay, and this is upsetting why? Brit is never very formal and that just sounds like something he would say off the cuff. Where is the great infraction? Mind you, I'm not watching at this moment, but I think you read the tea leaves a bit too much. Also, Brit is more of an opinion guy that a reporter, so he does not remain totally balanced. If he were strictly reporting, injecting personal opinion would be more problematic.

If you haven’t listened all evening, you won’t get it. No sense in trying to explain something that was shown in the inflection of voice coupled with a whole evening of why doesn’t Romney just drop out.

The state website is well behind the Fulton County website. Mitt is beating Huck by 11k on the County website, 8k on the state website. However, there do not appear to be enough votes uncounted in Georgia to make up the 27k gap between Romney and Huck.

The County website is here:http://www.fultonelections.com/
