No, Santorum was the one that was open about it. Romney arranged for the open primary and made deals for votes before the primary day ever came.

CNN just announced they are going to have a “change in exit poll results.”

The radio here just said Newt leads exit polling in MS and AL.

What the heck is going on here?

“No, Santorum was the one that was open about it. Romney arranged for the open primary and made deals for votes before the primary day ever came.”

Santorum was actively recruiting democrat votes in MI and Obama’s labor goon squad encouraged votes for Santorum hoping to damage Romney.

Please provide evidence for your theory regarding Romney and democrat votes.

It’s the liberal democrats that have poured money into FL, MI, OH running ads against Romney. The left wing has not run ads against Santorum. They are begging for a Santorum or Gingrinch nomination.

Just voted for Newt.

Go Newt!

BTW, what was the right vote for chief justice? I went with Roy Moore because he sounded like a solid conservative in his ads. But apparently some see this as a strategic mistake. What’s the AL freeper consensus on this?

If Romney wins Mississippi AND Alabama, he can set his campaign on cruise control all the way to the convention.

It will be third party time.

At this stage, I would argue that if Mitt Romney wins EITHER of these two states, he will be the inevitable nominee. Let’s hope this does NOT happen.

I am in AL. Several people have told me they held their noses and voted Romney because they thought he had best chance to beat Obama but they thought Obama would win anyway. Hmmmm...

I saw Newt's bus today parked so I drove up to the window and told the driver I was an undecided voter, was Newt there to talk me into voting for him. Driver said no, theynwere checking out venue. Oh well.

Let me translate as I get flamed later by the senior crowd.

Change that to the Senior Women vote for him because he is handsome. I am not kidding, many a granny RIP 30 years ago pulled the lever for Reagan for the same reason.

The Male Senior I know that voted for him bought the hype on Fox of his inevitability and now regret it....

CNN announced this a few days ago - they made special arrangements so the public could see the process.

It depends on who you choose to sample, where, and whether or not your sampling percentages are consistent with the electorate as a whole. Given the right sampling, I could probably make the statement that Paul will run away with both Alabama and Mississippi in a landslide. Exit polls are bogus. I’m thinking the BEST the Romneroid can hope for is second in Mississippi.

Exit polls look good to me.

.Where are these exit polls that look good to you? From what Drudge has, Romney is winning Mississippi and it is very close in Alabama. I don't consider that good news.

Polls that look good to napscoordinator are not necessarily a good thing.

I participated in most of the 10 Commandment rallies and even went to D.C. with the group and after listening to and learning about Roy Moore for many years now, he will ALWAYS have my support. Unfortunately the previous battle in the SC soured a lot of Alabamians on him. I hope and pray he wins, but we’ll just have to see how much support he still has. I really didn’t think running as Governor was a good idea for him. I’ve always thought he would make a great Senator (I wouldn’t mind trading Shelby for him). He could teach D.C. a thing or two about the Constitution and God.

That was my thinking. But I voted at noon today, 5 hrs. after poll opening, and I was no. 1 on the sign in list. From the results of past elections over 20 years I am the only conservative in my all black district, ie. 2000 election 973 Gore, 1 Bush, me.
I went with Newt today.
On the bright side, I can always tell if my vote has been counted.
