>>>Inmates?????????????????
Has the Alabama stat GOP gone mad?

Jefferson County in in bankruptcy. The general services office which runs the elections is staffed at tabout 1/3 the level it was at in 2008. I’m guessing inmates are a cheap source of labor for a bankrupt municipality.

Heh heh.....Romneroid running 3rd in Jefferson County (Birmingham, AL). Urban centers were supposed to be Myth’s strength and a key to his victory!

My sister heard he was counting on the "affluent" areas to win.

There is NO WAY Romney can win in the South. He's not just a Yankee nerd...he's a fake Yankee nerd.

I may never eat grits again!!!;-)

Actually, just kidding about the grits...they have been around in South GA for 10 thousand years. The Creek tribes ate them in the same way. Ground corn/maize, boiled to perfection. They call it sofkee of something like that. I am told the word sofkee (or sofkey) is a Muskogee indian word (Muskogees are Yankees...from up around Macon).

If Sarah and Newt were to go 3rd party I would lift my flaccid old heart out of this dying chair and crawl across rocks to help them defeat the evil asses and pachyderms.

I was basing that on CNN’s exit polling. One of the only segments that Romney significantly won was ‘Urban Areas’.

If he carries Ala and Miss...he gamed the system!

I watched Allen West on Cavuto today and was so amazed and totally impressed.

I would get my behind out and walk over broken glass to vote for the guy.

I'm proud to have helped elect Allen West as my Representative. He unseated a very liberal incumbent Democrat.

If Allen West was ever on a Presidential ticket, liberal heads would explode continuously until there were none left...

A Newt person here myself, I believe that NEWT is the only true Conservative in the running, both fiscally AND socially.

For tonight. I would not have a single problem of Newt getting both. He needs it more than Santorum. Newt is a fantastic guy fiscally but socially? I would put him behind Santorum on that for sure.

There is something fishy about the very idea of a Romney win in Ala and Miss. I agree. It seems the media can't hardly stand it so with just one percent of the vote in they can say Romney is ahead but the race it close. I would like to hear from Freepers in Alabama, Hawaii and Mississippi about their experiences at the polls today. Will ping my lists, and as always please FreepMail me if you wish to be taken off my ping list. Thanks!

The fact that Romney is even in this race (within 3 points of Santo and Newt) is bad news for our side.

It is too close to call right now. It almost looks like a draw coming up. Razor thin. I have FOX Business on. Good election coverage, very accurate.

If it’s that close you know Romney will squeak by with or without the actual votes. Sad but I really am starting to believe it. MI and OH very suspicious not to mention IA where he got the momentum from a state he didn’t even win.

All I know is that if Gingrich had the decency to accept his defeat, which he doesn’t, this night would have been a BLOWOUT for RICK SANTORUM. I feel certain that if Rick had performed as poorly as Newt has in most states thus far, he’d have dropped out. Newt has said that he’s out to get Romney, but all he’s doing now is aggrandizing himself and “getting Romney” nominated.

No, these are the people who have fallen for the “only Mitt can beat Obama” or “let’s get this overwith” or “Mitt’s the inevitable nominee” whispering campaign.

So they abandon their preferred person to vote for the frontrunner, like sheep. The powers that be know exactly how to manipulate people.

I shuttled Republican old folks for Newt to their polling places during lunch time today in River City, Mississippi.

I didn’t vote until 4:00PM where I was Republican voter #59.

At 4:00PM, he democrat voters were already over 200 with only a US Senate seat and US Congress seat on their ballot.

Have to agree. Rick's polled well across the U.S. and Newt hasn't. Maybe he'll show us all and sweep both states tonight but if not, it's a sad commentary on a man who's been a great public servant.

Santorum holds slight lead in both AL & MS

Gingrich 2nd/Romney 3rd

That is why their coverage beats the H&$$ out of FOX by miles and minutes with every single election night this cycle.

Santorum would win the popular vote in both states but it wouldn't be a blowout. A considerable number of Gingrich voters would vote for Romney (or stay home) if Gingrich dropped out.

I would not try to go the conspiracy route, if I were you. It was a simple fact that Santorum failed to register correctly, or in time, and the delegates were taken away after the initial Soft count. It was a formality, due to sloppy candidate organization and planning. Nothing more.

The same thing will happen here and in several of the coming states. Santorum just dropped the ball. He did things too carelessly and lacks the professional background to make it happen. It will be why he loses.
