All the national polling is showing a widening gender gap, and there’s a massive gender gap in the Florida exit polling.

But hey, feel free to be an Italian Cruise Ship Captain about the gender gap. No, we’re not sinking!

I agree about Fox, from what I’ve heard from people in FL. They know Newt had three wives, his complete 90’s record, his Freddie Mac work and his ethics investigation, but I bet half of voters don’t even know Romney is Mormon.

I know its all the voters’ fault, but I’d sure like to know what happened to Gingrich those last two debates. The on-fire Gingrich that got him there didn’t show up as far as I could tell. I wonder if his handlers put him in “Try not to lose mode” instead of “Go all out for the win” mode.

“If you don’t vote for the republican nominee, you are voting for Obama.”

Your party is not owed anyones’ vote. Especially if it runs (another) sack of crap liberal.

“Any of the 4 republicans are more conservative than Obama.”

Using Romneys’ record as governor of Massachusetts alone, prove that he’s not a liberal sack of s**t.

I double dare ya.

Romney hasn’t “gotten” anything yet. He will likely win, but these numbers will tighten as votes in the panhandle are counted.

seems newt lost big on the South west coast, Tampa & Miami among the empty nest communities, holding his own in the immigration communities maybe gaining a bit as more numbers come in. Definitely better up north - a dead heat in jacksonville

CNN commentary

Gingrich just tied Romney in the conservative panhandle area. 38% to 38%

One commentator said Gingrich’s problem was the last of a cohesive message. He was all over the map and failed to present a centralized message.

I think Romney is a GOP/establishment setup. Who the hell puts their personal finances in a blind trust with Goldman Sachs (who are deeply involved in the Obama administration) for ten years to avoid a clash or personal interest?

Who plans running for ten years like this?
IMO Romney is closer to the Antichrist than Reagan any day.

I hope your plan doesnt backfire...word is out that Paulites are trying to “infiltrate” various states so they can become delegates....so...if that is the case, and the delegates are padded with Paulites (who do not declare as such prior to becoming delegates, I hasten to add)...a Brokered convention or the like could backfire bigtime! (Operative word “COULD” ;-)

I just do not want that sleazy POS, Mittens to win!

Not true. The polls in the panhandle closed on time at 7pm Central Time. The results that are being reported are from those counties in the Eastern Time zone. The ballots here in the panhandle are on their way to the supervisor of elections as I speak.

Actually, GOPE (GOP Establishment or GOP Elite) seemed to rise from the ether just a few days ago. That’s when I started using it on my own and thought I was sooo clever. But apparently everyone came to a common conclusion in cyberspace, because it is all over.

It is sort of a name for the GOP Borg machine.

The CNN exit poll, for people that “Support” the Tea Party, had Romney 40, Gingrich 38.

However, for “Strongly support” it’s Gingrich by a lot, and “Somewhat Support it’s Romney by a lot.

Remember there are no membership cards for the Tea Party.

We’ve got a nice little ‘conspiracy’ going on to vote for Paul :-)

Yeah, I'm feeling empowered. If VA forces voters to choose between these two and Paul wins in a landslide, that should send Romney a msg. Also, will keep Romney from getting those delegates.

Very true. We’d be a lot better off with no talking heads or talk show hosts. Just anonymous internet like this.

These people get a name for themselves, and their personality becomes a publically known commodity, and very soon their only priority is keeping their show going, or their website, or their syndication, or what have you. At the expense of principles. They probably don’t even realize it completely.
