Which polls?

Yeah, the RCP average was 13%, and no poll had Romney up by more than 20%.

So people are creating fictional strawman polls to take their frustrations out on.

I hope people learn something, particularly from the almost certainly fraudulent Insider Advantage poll for Newsmax showing things "breaking hard" for Newt.

I'm curious if a peep will be heard from Insider Advantage in the next few days.

Note that the combo of Gingrich + Santorum would still fall short by 3% over what Romney gets

Yes, but add Paul and Gingrich is over the top.

“I will vote my conscience”

And that is what each of us should do. These never-ending threads bashing each other, creating bad feelings amongst those who should be FRiends, are really disappointing.

Respect the right to hold different opinions and the right to vote one’s conscience, which so many have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect.

Plus, when the panhandle results come in, Newt will narrow the gap. It will not by 17% at the end of tonight.

If you can, let’s send a little money to Newt tonight as a signal we’re still here: newt.org

I have a better idea. Let's send a lot of money. That's the way to grab headlines tomorrow and show that we haven't given up.

Good to know they weren’t trying to mess with those voters!

The entire population of the Panhandle could have been killed by a Neutron bomb this morning and it wouldn't have affected the final result. There just aren't many people there relative to the rest of the state.

Interestingly, on CNN I see no results from Dade County at all, which 1) is enormous and 2) is almost certainly Mitt-land.

“Can’t blame Fox News or Rush”

Not true.

Face it, Romney voters are not motivated to inform themselves thoroughly about the candidates. So they listen to Rush and watch Fox, thinking they’re getting the bottom line.

Rush and Fox each have their own subtle (and not so subtle) ways of boosting Romney. It makes all the difference for large numbers of voters.

first official state numbers
Michele Bachmann 3,227 0.26%
Herman Cain 2,698 0.21%
Newt Gingrich 395,168 31.32%
Jon Huntsman 5,217 0.41%
Gary Johnson 970 0.08%
Ron Paul 86,540 6.86%
Rick Perry 5,451 0.43%
Mitt Romney 596,994 47.32%
Rick Santorum 165,280 13.1%

Not sure what the Bachmann, cain, huntsman, and perry voters were considering.

Well we’ll see what happens from here. I heard one guy on a local radio show in LA say that some poll reported the 51% of Florida Republicans described themselves as “moderates” while only 29% said they were “Conservative”.....If that’s true (and it very well could be with all the North Eastern transplants down there), Newt never had much of chance there.

Hopefully Romney doesn’t get a bounce in the natioanl polls an other states out of this.

Power of the establishment showed it’s muscle. It is tough to beat through $20 million of negative commercials. The good news is we found out who our courageous leaders are and who are not.

Rush must be so proud his candidate got over 10%!

Tweet from Michelle Milkin

Dear Newt supporters: Stop whining about Romney's money. Ask Sheldon Adelson for more

Michelle has made it known that she hate Newt and Newt supporters because we didn't listen to her and support Santorum.

The good thing about this primary is seeing what people are really like. Michelle want to be all that, and really doesn't care about this country. As long as she gets her say and you agree, she is fine. I have noticed other TV talking heads are the same way.

“Fox is reporting 47% of precincts in. WTH?? How can that be in 4 minutes?”

Because most of Florida county polls closed at 7 and they counted the votes then but waited to report them due to the northern counties not yet closed - then they dumpted the numbers all at once, before the northern ones were counted.
