Dang it. Keep in mind he won it in 2008 too. Santorum did very well coming in second place. Romney got 38 percent and Santorum got 31 percent. We need to get rid of Romney NOW.

Milt 38%

Rick 31%

Newt 15%

Paul 12%

Good news for Santorum. Looks like 38% of CPAC attendees are not Conservative.

I think it was the head of CPAC blabbering on about Jeb Bush coming out of a brokered convention. Romney and Bush, truly conservative.

What a farce. I guess 38% are “severely” conservative.

CPAC should be boycotted from now on.

Of course not. Any Conservative org or group the Establishment LIBERALS in the GOP hear about they flood it too take over and call it their own.

Its really sad to see the GOP settling on Romney. At least if they had given the votes to Santorum it would have made sense, or even to Newt, but to Romney, really CPAC really? What the hell is wrong with these people

Of course he did. And the bulk of the attendees are from what part of the country? Mostly NE I’d guess. And the leanings of them there attendees? Lefty Publicans I’d surmise. And 38% of them will be sadly disappointed when their candidate is FLUSHED by the rest of us that have a clearer perspective west of the Hudson and south of the Potomac and east of the Sacramento and San Joaquin.

I saw FOX interviewing some cute CPAC chicks...they were for Romney because they said he was the most “electable” (translation: great hair, good smile and lots of money make me weak in the knees).

You almost have to expect with Milts money and organization that they would have a lot of his people there. His win doesn’t surprise me at all. The fact is he had a flat speech there while Santorum blew the doors off the place and did well in the poll. Conservatives are not going to flock to Milt because of this.

There is a prominent conservative forum, but CPAC ain’t it. The Values Voter Summit is more credible.

CSPAN is apparently delayed. I was watching CSPAN (computer) and FOX (TV), and FOX had the results just as the “announcers” were climbing up on stage.

They shouldn’t allow voting until all candidates have spoken. Also, Romney had his team bring in college students to support him. I almost threw up in my mouth when I heard Romney won the poll.

I think we’re back to the problem where the surge of Santorum, if it weakens AT ALL, is going to put us right back to Newt and Rick splitting the vote and giving Romney the win.

The problem I imagine is that CPAC leans to well-educated or well-off people, and women in that group are extremely unlikely to be social conservatives. The colleges see to it that feminist leanings are drilled into their heads. They end up projecting that into, “we can’t nominate a social conservative because they’re not electable.” What it really means is that THEY don’t like social conservatism. They haven’t seriously considered a poll that says what women nationwide think about it or anything.

He won in 2008 too, for what ever that means. But I thought I read here the other day that he bombed and had a catastrophic speech. What happened?
