Have at it y'all !
Hey Florida -- let's show the Nation and all the RINO slugs some TeaPower today !
This one oughta be good for a couple thousand !
( oy, my poor ping page ! )
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.
Sniff, sniff. Does anyone else smell ozone?
Which tells you that you need to still get people you want into politics at the grass roots level so later on you have what we need.
Fla the RINO, CINO state!
1444 delegates to cinch nomination. LA, TX, GA, + 200 delegates still to come.
Screw them, and Faux too!
Works for me!
Yes, but add Paul and Gingrich is over the top.
You would be wrong. Women and Independents overwhelmingly supported Newt in South Carolina.
...so the last voters in the Panhandle aren’t even back in their cars before the race is called...geez. F the media...
“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.
Half of the tea party vote went to Romney - that’s bad.
Stay home? What about other races that will be on the ballot?
Plus, when the panhandle results come in, Newt will narrow the gap. It will not by 17% at the end of tonight.
Fox is reporting 47% of precincts in. WTH?? How can that be in 4 minutes?
Excuse me, a few of us are not stupid.
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.
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.
We ALL need to send very firm emails to the GO PEE
Blitzer: “We can call it a shellacking.”
Some things are more important than elections...I will NOT vote for Romney...let the chips fall where they may.
“Cant blame Fox News or Rush”
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.
Florida will go for Obama in the general just as it did last time. That is what this result tells me. Florida has gone to the dark side.
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.
They called Iowa for Mitt as well, but he didn’t win it.
I find that hard to believe. Do you have verification of that?
Obama will lose FL in 2012.
Just called my sister in VA. She’s going to get family and friends to vote for Paul.
Six degrees of separation. We should all know someone in VA.
Oh take a hike...
I dont vote for evil pieces of dung like the liberal Willie Mitty...
I love my country...
I serve4d my country in the US military
the TWO TIME draft dodger coward Williard Romney doesnt deserve my vote
As an American citizen the most precious thing I own is my right to vote
Its like a rare and expensive diamond...
ans so I treat it as such...
I dont give it away to any old broken down stinking wino hobo that comes begging for it...
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.
So work to make sure he won’t be the nominee.
“....hes short and nuts.”
Those who identify as strong conservatives went with Newt
Don't forget the rope!
by the way it appears the gap is closing down to a 47-31 spread now from 48-31 10 minutes ago
Tell them Romney may have won the FL battle but he has lost the war .....
Terrific! Thank you!
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%!
Pray for America
It just this minute updated to 8% reporting...
Don’t want to sound stupid, but what does the GOP-e mean?
Keep your chin up. Many battles are left to fight.
It ain’t over, yet.
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
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.
We’ve got a nice little ‘conspiracy’ going on to vote for Paul :-)
Is that so?? I know some things about Mormonism but I didn’t know they claim Jesus had WIVES. You’re right. That one reason is enough for a Christian to disassociate from such blasphemy.
I find that hard to believe. Do you have verification of that?
Look at the exit polls:
Romney was for the bail out before he was against it.
