I voted for Newt yesterday here in the swamps of Delaware.
He did the best in Delaware yesterday, garnering 27% of the vote.
He would have won this state but recent happenstances changed and affected so much.
First, Santorum and Paul were BOTH on the Delaware Republican primary ballot yesterday. Between those two, about 12% of the vote was likely siphoned from Newt.
Second, there’d been big rumors last week that Newt was cancelling his North Carolina appearances and, while Newt’s campaign denied, it greatly affected the turnout.
Voter turnout was very lackluster yesterday. Had all that crap last week not been thrown out there to be repeated hysterically by the media (and to make me wonder if it wasn’t some operative in the Romney campaign somehow making this happen) I believe turnout would have been higher.
In short, I’m quite certain that Delaware, where we kicked out Mike Castle and voted in Christine O’Donnell to great ridicule, would be Newt all the way over Romney given a fair and vibrant primary.
Well the media pushed this of course...as it would discourage some from even voting, and is what they do to usher in THEIR candidate.
I voted for Newt yesturday here in PA. The turnout for my district was just 124 people and half were democrates!
Even so I was Proud to vote Newt.
