18% Ohio precincts reporting, its 38% to 38%.

Yikes.

Even a tiny win counts as a headline loss for Bishop Romney.

Drudge is up to his dirty tricks again.

Earlier, when Romney was ahead in the Ohio vote count, his headline said that Romney was winning. Now, when Santorum is ahead, we get this:

OHIO DEADLOCK:
SANTORUM 38.7%
ROMNEY 36.1%

He sure as hell didn’t call it a deadlock when Romney was ahead!

Why are you constantly posting to vote for Obama?

Trolling?

According to RCP, Santorum’s leading in OH by about 3 with 33% counted and really kicking it in ND leading Willard the Giant Rat by almost 15.

I’m a precinct committee person who voted for Santorum.

The media has been able to turn criticism of the HHS mandate into a “war on women”.

I believe this makes it impossible to for Rick to carry the nomination.

I would love to have seen Newt spend the next 6 months punching Obama in the mouth, rhetorically.

You may begin silently, but the time has come to figure out how to evict Obama and get behind the last man standing.

So you are trolling for Romney.

Weird way to go.

If Romney over Oboma means trolling, guilty as charged.

OH up to 49% and Rinomney closing the gap to under 2%. The dead vote must be starting to come in. Proportional anyway, so neither is going to wallop the other delegate-wise, but it would be nice for momentum.
