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 ! )
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.
DITTO!!!! We need to make a stand against the establishment
money!!!! If Obama wins so be it. Focus on house and senate!!!!
I can not what I am hearing first it was South Carolina has always decided
the nominee now it is Florida has always decided the nominee!!!!
Which is it???? If we do not stand together this election season, NO
VOTE FOR ROMNEY, the establishment will guide us like sheep from
this point on and this country is doomed!!!!!!
“If you dont 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.
Michele Bachmann 3,227 .26% Herman Cain 2,698 .21% Newt Gingrich 395,168 31.32% Jon Huntsman 5,217 .41% Gary Johnson 970 .08% Ron Paul 86,540 6.86% Rick Perry 5,451 .43% Mitt Romney 596,994 47.32% Rick Santorum 165,280 13.1%
Romney hasn’t “gotten” anything yet. He will likely win, but these numbers will tighten as votes in the panhandle are counted.
It’s not like Fox hasn’t gotten Florida wrong before!
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
“Half of the tea party vote went to Romney<<<
I find that hard to believe. Do you have verification of that?”
CNN reported it - I suppose from exit polls.
GOP Unites with Marxists and Socialists votes for Romney. Is it time for a new party yet? just asking ....
your'e not stupid! GOP-e means GOP-elite.
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.
Thanks for posting the Florida SOS results ... the only ones that matter.
If money decides elections then Obama will have a decided advantage with his $1 billion in the General. Obama raised over $5 million today.
GOP elites (or some might use it for ‘establishment’ but then again that might be GOP-E).
15,000 votes went to people who ain’t even running.
You and me , both. I will not cast a vote for one more establishment RINO compromising leftist Republican. I will no longer be cajoled and manipulated by the party and media elites. To hell with them all.
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!
Don’t stop him he’s on a roll.
Animal House reference - excellent movie -
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.
I saw the same thing and I call BS..how can ANYONE who is a member of the tea party support a socialist who wants to implement the same policies that they are supposedly against, I dont buy it
The Germans bombed Pearl Harbour? OMG OMG OMG somebody call someone quick!
You mean Japan?
Uh, no. It means GOP establishment.
It is a historical :) quote from the movie, Animal House.
[Dont want to sound stupid, but what does the GOP-e mean?]
You are soooo yesterday Alice ! :)
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.
Over 600,000 votes were cast in early and absentee voting.
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.
I hate holding my nose to vote!
LOL - OK!
It is not over until its over!
You are assuming there was a text from David and not Rush sending his own tweek as a joke to the caller. Either way, I’m sure they had a good ol laugh at that woman begging him for an answer.
Pray for America
“Cant blame Fox News or Rush.”
Put me down as an “I disagree”.
A candidate that is closer to John Kerry than Ronald Reagan won hands down in Florida in a Republican primary? yipes
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.
He’s quoting a famous line from the movie Animal House.
McCain got 701k.
Everybody called Iowa for Romney
Sadly it is true there is even a thread on here about it and how the mormons baptized him moron it’s some real sick stuff
Chuck Norris will need to give CNN a roundhouse kick, in order to centralize Newt’s message.
Newt needs to be the first to step away from the nasty charachter assasination and start giving inspiring speeches like Reagan did.
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.
