It depends on how many Santorum supporters Newt can pick up. The conservative vote was well split between the two of them and as a result Romney now has quite a head of steam. These things are based on traction and impetus - already many conservatives are losing heart, seeing Romney's nomination as almost a certainty.

It isnt over yet, but it will be unless Conservatives rally round and ensure a couple of big wins for Gingrich. And soon.

Hard to do given how hateful many Newt supporters have been towards Santorum—but that's them not Newt so I'm all for anything but Romney even though the bastard is getting the nomination.

Besides, many of the Santorum haters were Mittbots from the beginning and the rest, well, being so mean-spirited is it's own punishment.

Well I’m going to Newt because there is not a chance in hell I’m supporting RINOmney. Besides him being a lib I’d rather cut off my left nut then ever support a politician from Assachussets or anything coming from Assachussets for tht matter. Every-single-problem we face today as a nation is a direct result of the products of that state. From their Harvard grads, to their politicians and the libs who elect them... Plus the guy hasn’t got a chance in hell of beating the foreign Marxist. All the foreign Marxist has to say in any debate is “But you did the same thing Gov. Romney” which would be true. Newt on the other and would obliterate the Kenyan, I just hope he don’t drop out.

“I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice”.

It would take a miracle to turn this mess around, but Good for Newt.

Newt Gingrich is going after unpledged delegates - that haven't committed in primaries - including upcoming PA (72), and already completed MT (26) and (IL (69) delegates, since these delegates remain unpledged regardless of primary vote.

AND though there are going to be some “winner take all” primaries, the following contests are also on the schedule:

RI (16) proportional
NY (92) proportional
WVA (28) proportional -- elect delegates (who list their presidential pick on ballot)
NC (52) proportional
OR (25) proportional
AK (33) proportional
KY (42) proportional
TX (155) proportional
CA (169) proportional (by district)
NM (20) proportional
SD (25) proportional

The Green Papers

There there are the Contested delegates: …. “delegates have to be "uncontested" in order to count. The frontrunner's rivals argue some of the states that awarded Romney all of their delegates violated Republican National Committee rules when they moved their contests ahead of April 1 and therefore should distribute delegates proportionally. This dispute, if it continues, would not be ruled on until the August convention in Tampa.

"All the media counts right now give him all of Florida, which is against the rules, all of Arizona, which is against the rules, and all of Idaho," Gingrich said Monday. "Those are all three proportional states and they should only be counting his share. So he has to win 1,144 uncontested delegates."

FL: 50 delegates
ID: 32 delegates
AZ: 29 delegates

Cain said Tuesday morning on Fox News. “I remind people all the time, … ‘Keep your eye on the mission.’ And the mission is to get control of the Senate, maintain control of the House and defeat Barack Obama.

YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! That is the mission.

Just saw on the News (April 11, 2012.. 6:00 a.m. CDT) that Gov. Bobby Jindal, who initially endorsed Rick Perry, is now endorsing Mitt Romney. Guess everyone is throwing in the towel. Why are so many people reluctant to endorse Newt? I don’t understand.

I will glad back up zotting any posters that preach the story vote Romney or else. A vote for anyone else is a vote for Obama.

Any poster with that agenda in mind should consider that.

there is no “or else” Its United we stand, divided we fall.

We unite AGAINST Romney and Obama, everything else is just slapping the Easy button.

If Newt is still on the ballot, I guess I’ll be voting for him in May. I guess I can always count on Paul being on the ballot as an alternative to RINOmney, for what that’s worth.

I heard this morning that some poll says 1/2 of Santorum’s supporters have moved to Romney.
