The closest race in Maryland seems to be between Gingrich and Paul to determine who’ll finish 4th....... That may change as more results are reported.

Why do we give them 19 delegates? I mean, I can understand throwing them a bone and giving them 6, but 19 is just plain ridiculous when the GOP candidate can’t break 20% in an awesome year. They make Hawaii look competitive.

Nope. It’s over.

44% Romney, 37% Santorum is my best guess.

Romney is projected to have 1,270 delegates based on the remaining contests. With over a 100+ probably delegate cushion, a brokered convention is all but out of the question.

I live in the People's Republic of Maryland. Hit the polling place after work at about 1830 - the place was like a tomb. I cast my vote, and I don't mind telling you that I voted for the Newtster.

When it came to the Senatorial candidates I didn't even recognize any of the names except two - one a nutcase named John Kimble - I voted against him and for Mr. Douglas. I understand Romney has projected winner in the presidential contest.

As I have said before on this forum, I will not vote for that RINO sonofabitch in the general election!

I don't know if this is usual, since I've never paid attention to it before, but roughly 10% of democrats in Maryland came out to vote against 0bama. MD is a one-party state — should I be surprised at a protest vote?

I won’t be able to check in much tonight, but wanted to say that, win or lose, I’m proud of Rick and it has been a distinct privilege to support him.

When he made noises in the summer of 2010 that he might run, I publicly declared my support for him. When he officially announced in the summer of 2011, I started donating to him. As soon as a bumper sticker was available on eBay (late summer 2011) I put it on my car.

I decided not to hold my nose this election cycle. Win or lose, I believe that my donations to Rick have been well worth it to get his message out if only for a little while longer.

As a social conservative, I won’t vote for Obama or Romney in November. If Rick (or Newt) doesn’t win the nomination, I will be looking at third party this year, and Santorum 2016 (or Pence 2016; or whatever good conservative runs 2016).

Thank you, Rick, for fighting in the arena, and being a voice for millions of us in the Heartland.

We are doomed. Witness the death of the grand old party and the birth of a new moderate to liberal republican party vs a left-wing radical democrat party.
America will never rebound in my lifetime and this is the legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren. Memories of a once great nation being brought to it's knees. I don't know which feeling is stronger...sadness or anger.

The only chance Santorum has, is if the Democrats show up in large enough numbers to Prank the vote, like they did in Michigan, Alabama and Mississippi.

But in Maryland today, the big endorsements from Ryan, and company had a major impact. Almost 65% of the exit polls of the voters who remained undecided until the 3 days prior to the election, said they voted Romney because of those endorsements.

Romney also bead Santorum among Evangelicals, and tied 40/40 among those who called them selves extremely Conservative.

It appears like the electorate is starting to take a stand and make a solid choice to defeat Obama. They almost unanimously said that it is now more important to get behind a candidate soon, and to not delay or hinder the nomination. It is far more important to vote Obama out of office. ABO!, is the new battle cry.

By virtue of these Romney wins (and probable eventual Republican nomination), the GOP is giving Obama his second term on a silver platter. Everyone I talk to sees it the same way. Romney is NOT anyone's first choice and people are disillusioned with the apparent John McCaining of conservatives for the second time in a row. This is republican party suicide and everyone can see it except the elites who are forcing this candidate down our throats. May God help America out of this potential disaster.

Not a surprise.

In further Maryland humiliation, Our Governor, Lil’Marty, showed up today on The Ed Show, trashing the Ryan budget.

He thinks he is the white Obama - complete with the arrogance.

But, but, but not voting for Mitt is like voting for Obama. How many times have you heard that?

(I'm not voting for the "RINO sonofabitch" either)

I am sure you will love all the wonderful things another 4 years of Obama will bring to your Christian faith. What ever the reason, it must not mean enough to you to fight for, since you would risk handing an easy win to Obama. If that happens don't bother making plans for 2016, there will be nothing left by then, especially in regards to Christianity.

D.C. has less relavence to the Republicans than American Samoa and should get about as many delegates.

Trivia question: Barry Goldwater actually managed to get 14.5% of the DC vote in 1964. Who was the last Republican presidential candidate to exceed this total? Who was the last to crack 10%?

Obama - Romney: there is little to no difference in the evil they will do. Thankfully, if McRomney needs my vote here in Tennessee, he has already lost. I will just have to vote in the House and Senate and hope they can check Obama, as they would not oppose a president of the same party.

It’s high time for a third party, but the GOP talking heads in the news media will do their darndest to keep party-line Republicans in line with their usual talking points and scare tactics.

“Let’s change the GOP from within!”

Riiight. It’s not like the establishment holds the reins of power or anything.

“But a third party will never win!”

Romney will never win, either, but we’re supposed to vote for him.

“But a third party will split the vote!”

Good! It’s time for the Republicans to go the way of the Whigs. What did caving to the establishment get us in ‘08? What did it get us in ‘12? Will 2016 be any different?

IN, NC, WV are all on May 8th. If Rick could take his home state it might be worth it to hang in til the 8th. Could recapture momentum.

The big secret is that it’s not really over and Romney’s not yet the nominee.

I've been wanting to ask this, and waiting for such a straightforward genial and non-acerbic show of support for Santorum such as yours...what if, at the GOP convention, Santorum comes out and endorses Mittens again? Much in the way of what he told Laura Ingraham in 2008? Would that change your mind about November?

"Santorum told Ingraham that Romney is "a guy who has gone through that pressure cooker, who has developed a passion, who understands why he's a conservative and understands the issues, how they weave together."

Santorum added that conservatives are "about traditional values and a traditional way of American life" and that Mitt Romney "understands that, it's not just in his head anymore, it's in his heart."

This year Santorum, a presidential candidate and Romney rival, has said his 2008 endorsement was motivated more by politics than conservative beliefs.

"I made, I hate to say it, a calculated political decision that Romney was the stronger horse and had a better chance to win Super Tuesday with the resources he had," Santorum said. "I like him. The time I spent with him, he was a gentleman. He's very sincere."

I’m sure that you will be more content with a Romney Presidency than I will. By the way, I checked the articles that you posted during the month of March. Of 23 articles posted, at least 15 were articles that presented Rick Santorum in a less than favorable light.

How many articles during that time did you post that were anti-Romney?

None.

I think that February was even worse.

I hope that you enjoy your Romneygasm.

He has higher ambitions, don’tcha know — either President in 2016, or maybe V.P. in 2012, if Obamao chucks Biden under the bus.

I voted for Santorum, but there were only two delegates on the ballot for him, so I rounded it out by voting for a friend who is a Paul-designated delegate. There were no Santorum alternates, so I picked Paul alternates. I think I would have voted for Paul himself, were it not for his idiocy in accepting donations from white racists. (So why did I vote for some of his delegates, you ask? Again, he would have been my first choice if he had even so much as returned those donations.)

I am very similar to you, except I was more pessimistic on Santorum. Also I confess, I might vote for Romney in November (assuming he is the nominee).

But I might leave my Presidential ballot blank too. If Romney becomes President, he almost certainly is the nominee again in 2016! Urgh!!
