Once again I'm puttin' up a thread cuz no one else had and it's almost 1300 EST.

Hope this one doesn't devolve into a lot of off-topic BS like the SC thread did for awhile.

For the sake of your fellow FReepers, if it heads in that direction please ping abuse to the mods or Jim and help nip it in the bud !

And once again I'm painting during a primary, so if you bounce replies off my nick and don't hear back for a couple hours/ever, please don't be offended, k ?

Good to know Newt will fight on, no matter what happens today.

Also good to know he’s probably doing better than expected in Florida.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO hoping that Gingrich pulls off another win today. You saw the carpet bombing Romney did after South Carolina, just imagine how bad it would get after another Gingrich win. The GOP-e would also be like rabid dogs foaming at the mouth and gnashing their teeth. That would be so sweet.

The Drudge report would be nothing but a page of solid red headlines and a hundred flashing sirens.

Actually, FL is in both the Eastern and the Central time zones. I may be mistaken but the polls should all be closed @ 8:00PM EST/7:00PM CST.

I voted Newt at 8:55 am and was only number 32 in my polling place. I kept looking around and wondering, “Where is everyone?” Seemed very slow, but the poll workers said it would likely be very busy later in the day.

I think I convinced 21-yr-old son to vote Newt later today and I think my wife is coming around too. This morning she actually said she “might” vote for Newt — after insisting all last week that Romney looked more Presidential and more of a family man.

I think Sarah’s support got her attention long enough for her to actually consider candidate positions and not just appearances.

Praying for a tsunami of support and a Newtron bomb tonight!

Most precincts — 94 percent, actually — close at 7 p.m. eastern time while a handful of polling places in the state’s Panhandle region close at 8 p.m.

Put in my vote for Newt this morning at 8 AM.

You are correct Afterguard, FL is mostly EST but partially in CST. The majority of the state polls close at 7 PM EST / 6 PM CST, but the other half dozen panhandle counties close at 8 PM EST / 7 PM CST.

“The Drudge report would be nothing but a page of solid red headlines and a hundred flashing sirens.”

LOL, ZX12R.

If Romnuts wins, his headline will be “Mitt Coasts to Victory”, “Floridians Come Through For Romney” or “Newt Gets Crushed in Fla.”. If Newt wins, it’ll be “Newt Steals Win over GOP Favorite.” :-)

I voted Newt this morning here north of Orlando. I saw Newt and Santorum signs. No Romney signs anywhere. (lol!) I asked the poll workers if they had been busy and they said “steady.” I was the only one there about 10 am est. I have been doing some phone banking for Newt and hoping for a huge turnout for him. Limbaugh just said there is so much strong emotional dislike out here in those who hate Romney this could be closer than we think. I feel I must do all I can do. I have two big home made yard signs outside. GO NEWT!

It’ll definitely be interesting to watch the numbers come in tonight.

As a Pol Sci major, I’m gonna be very curious as to see which candidate does well in certain geographical areas.

In particular, I’m curious about the I-4 corridor. There’s a lot of GOP voters in that area.

Wear gloves, TN. I know of a woman who dug in her garden and the soil was from China. She had a cut on her hand and worms got into her system and hatched. They can’t get rid of them and she is going to die from it.
Sorry for that story but if Romnuts were to steal this election in Fla, it seems appropriate. :-)

Does anyone have some suggestions of what I can do tonight instead of watch FAUX, Romney’s satellite election hdqtrs?

I know I’ll be here on FR like most of you, but I also want to engage in pleasantries to create good energy for Newt.
I was going to pay bills but that’s too depressing.

Hmmm...maybe I’ll cook something. Suggestions?

If Romney wins, I think the significant numbers will be the number of people who voted against him.

Ohhhh yeah, the old trick where the polls close in the more populous eastern part of the state, and then the state-controlled dinomedia reports the “projected” results, and it skews the vote in the west, where the polls are still open for another hour.

Would love to get a good, true feel or report on how the voter turnout is coming along!!! The reports so far have either been light or steady voting. That makes me nervous!!! If Newt Gingrich is to win or make a very strong showing, a massive “today” voter turnout is necessary, because so many voters cast early or absentee ballots. A light turnout favors Mitt Romney, big time. IMHO, it behooves Newt supporters to get on the throttle...and this very site, to urge voters to turnout and vote for Gingrich!!!

Does anyone really have a good, honest read on how the vote is proceeding as far as turnout is concerned? The media, all kinds, is not helpfull at all!!!

Or report that all the polls are closed when the panhandle still had an hour to go, as they did in 2000?

Exactly! Mitt is NOT a family man, he already has blood on his hands with being pro abortion - killing of future Americans and the defenseless. Since when is gay marriage pro family? Amazing how some are so easily conned by the POS con man by not thinking for themselves! Mitt is the father of lies!
