Faux GOP-E Romney News should be calling it for Romney within the next hour.

Well, they have been calling it for Romney for weeks, but they will do it again very soon.

GO NEWT GO......this is not just about picking a president, it’s about the very survival of our country!!

my wife and I just voted on Lewis speedway mate.

We met two in front of us who were voting for Newt as well.

to Hell with the polls!””””

I read a poll yesterday that said Mitt held a 15 point lead over Newt:

They ‘surveyed’ 737 people in the state of Florida.

That didn’t seem like a very deep poll, based upon the population of all of Florida, so I dismissed it.

One thing we all have to remember: The people who ARE polled, their party affiliation & exactly how the questions are phrased can be very misleading.

IF I poll only 70% Democrats & 20% ‘Republicans’ & 10 % “Independents’....I can certainly get poll answers which may parallel the results from my poll which are what the person PAYING for this poll wishes to hear & tout all day long on the BIASED media. Some networks sing to the same old songs, each & every election.

I live rural. We almost all have some sort of large animal out here.

IF I were to poll downtown Pacoima & ask them how many large animals they have & then poll with the same questions a rural area like where I live, I would get entirely different answers.

Polls can be so craftily twisted that I really no longer pay alot of attention to them.

It’s not going to last. Newt will lose Florida. I am just hoping it is not an embarrassing blow-out. He looks to pick up delegates on Super Teusday.

Yup, ask AlGore and John "May I be the first to call you Mr President?" Kerry what they think of exit polling.

I'm not sure how this is going to come out. I'm thinking that it's going to be close. Looking at RCP, I doubt that Romney is going to get as high as 41%, Santorum will get as high as 13%, and Paul (remember this is a closed primary) as high as 10+%. Will the differences be enough to put Newt over the top, though? I dunno.

I gotta say, though, that...

1) after all of the money Romney has spent,

2) after all of the nasty ads by Romney,

3) after a mediocre performance by Newt in the debates (he merely did OK, hitting singles instead of Grand Slams),

4) With all of the media pulling for Romney

5) And after every single poll projects a blowout for Romney

....Anything beyond a huge (15+%) win for Romney is an effective loss. He shot his bolt to get FL, but there's still 46 (53? lol! ) states left.

Could well be a squeaker for Newt given the large body of undecideds. I don’t see any other candidate, blemishes or no, that has shown close to as much gumption in endeavoring to root out the Obama rot. Mitt seems to be the ever-cautious one. I hope the undecideds agree. Looks like we are on the brink of Contract With America II, but this time without having to triangulate around Rats. We could do far, far worse.

Any news of Newt up in the polls and all of a sudden, we’ll see a gaggle of black suburbans hurtling down I-95 with a bunch of boxes FULL of newfound early votes!

....all for Mitt, of course.

no idea about the exit polls, but from my unscientific poll conducted by standing at a polling place in Brevard county waving a NEWT! sign, about 2/3 of the cars pulling in gave me a thumbs up (yeah, I was the only one there .. starting at 6 am, omg!). That looks good, except there were not huge lines of voters, so... One of my former students sent me an email with the phrase, "Impossibility is an Illusion" Keep that thought when you listen to MSM telling us it is over for conservatives.

It takes years of study and careful planning to have minions. That and frequent pool parties that begin with a power point presentation on conservobabes vs liberal harpies. And daquiris....lots of daquiris.

Not familiar with the demographics of the Florida electorate. Is Brevard county conservative?

Are you absolutely certain that Romney is a natural born citizen?

Are you sure Romney isn't actually Al Gore?

Ever notice how, when Romney's "up" and excited and getting people all worked up about ManBearPig, he looks, moves, acts, and sounds just like the Gorebot?

Come to think of it, has anyone ever seen Mittens and the Gorebot in the same room at the same time?

I thought I did once.

But it was an antique store with two cigar store wooden Indians.

I was the only voter at my precinct in Brevard an hour ago. In over 30 years here, I’ve never seen such a light turnout.

“The RCP average is Romney +13, so that’s the “pros” consensus.”

Does that mean 13% above the others combined total?
