SANTORUM UP AS LAST PRECINCT REPORTS... but AP reports suddenly 9 more precincts to go?

Posted on 01/03/2012 11:06:33 PM PST by dangus

but AP/NPR reports suddenly nine more precincts not reporting?

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2012/by_county/IA_Page_0103.html?SITE=NPRELN&SECTION=POLITICS

What on earth is going on? CNN also has returned all their county counts back to zero. Is this it? Is the fix now coming in?

Yes...The fix is in for Mittens. I pray South Carolina has the good sense to Ignore Iowa,NH, and Gov. Haley and not vote for Romney! (But then again we are the same state that keeps sending Linsey Graham back to Washington..GRRR)

The good news is that the precincts are apparently from Santorum counties, so we can detect any shenanigans.

1 Appanoose
3 Clayton
1 Clinton (Mitt County)
1 Kossuth
1 Lee
1 Tama

Mitt Romney just won by 14 votes (or close to that). As announced on Fox.

Clinton county still shows 97% in.

Rove can shove it up his a$$. I don’t trust him.

Out spent rick 100 to 1 (or more.. Did I hear it as 1.50 to 125 .00 at one point???) and won by 14 votes...

More proof that money can’t buy your everything.

The fix is in for Mittens. The GOP establishment elite are in those precincts right now “recounting” as they “accidentally” drop hundred dollar bills on the floor. It doesn’t matter, though. It’s too late. America went to bed knowing Rick santorum is for real and has arrived.

Screw you, GOP establishment elite, and screw you too, Mittens.

FNC reporting that Romney will win by 14 votes, per a GOP source.

Can’t help but to wonder if some ‘fix’ wasn’t applied here to put Romney over the top. Given what we’ve heard about data entry errors and the handling of ballots, just about any damn thing could have happened. Almost bad enough to make a Democrat election look clean.

Just like I predicted. Romney is not allowed to lose.

He “wins” by 14 votes.

What a crock of shyt!

Can you say rigged.

I knew this would happen.

This is a guy who was polling 4% nationally and every one wrote him off. He has the Big Mo now in New Hampshire and people will be giving him a second look.

He’s the only conservative who can beat Romney. No one else can do it.

Boy, they're just cheating fighting tooth and nail to make sure Barack McRomney gets every last vote, aren't they?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Getting beaten by a guy with a stringshoe budget and 4% in the polls has got to be humiliating!

Mittens no longer looks invincible going into New Hampshire.

Perhaps.
But I have seen his presentations on the debates,
and Newt has much more substance, experience and
overall strength to beat 0.
It is a temporary setback, but people will see
a clearer picture of how Newt will handle the economy,
national security and defense.

Not in New Hampshire. Some candidates are even conceding NH to Romney and going straight to South Carolina. Which might be the smart thing for Santorum to do because he’s got no organization in the South. On Friday he was polling at 1% in Florida. He’s got a huge uphill battle.

Are Iowa and New Hampshire winner-take-all delegate states or proportional apportionment states.

I don’t think money will decide this contest and Romney has loads of it.

But Santorum can connect with grassroots voters - its his greatest strength and the polls don’t capture it well.

This race like in Aesop’s Fables, won’t go to the swift.

GOP delegates are winner take all unlike in the Democratic Party where they are proportionately awarded. If Mittens came in first, he takes all of IA’s delegates.

NH and SC are proportional. Florida is winner take all.

No candidate gets anything from Iowa tonight. Their delegates are unbound. Usually they get divided up proportionally based on the final delegate count at the end of the primary season. You may see media outlets divide them up...at this point that’s just an estimate.

Mittens is going to take on the aroma of a slightly cracked and shrunken slice of Cheddar cheese in the next week or so, and so much the better.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

“Is the fix now coming in?”

It could be. The Republican elites want Republicans to think Romney is the only one who can beat Obama.

The establishment wants Romney. If every one unites behind Santorum, Romney will be denied the nomination.

The Republican contests in States which take place before April 1st, 2012 are all proportional contests (with the exception of Florida which the RNC granted a waiver to allow winner-take-all but then Florida lost half its delegates because it moved its Primary up to January 31st, 2012) by design. This was to prevent an early wrap up of the contest as happened in 2008 with John McCain.

Iowa and New Hamphshire are both proportionally allocated delegates. Iowa finally selects its national convention delegates at a State Convention Saturday June 16, 2012. Given the vote count with Romney winning by 8 votes the Iowa delegate break down looks somewhat as follows:

Romney     6 delegates
Santorum   6 delegates
Paul       6 delegates
Gingrich   4 delegates
Perry      3 delegates
Bachmann   0 delegates
Huntsman   0 delegates
======================
Pledged   25 delegates
Unpledged  3 delegates
=======================
Total     28 Iowa National Convention delegates

Yes, it is time to come to terms asap and go on offense and knock off the chinese fire drill circle jerk here. With the GOP field, all drop out except ONE CONSERVATIVE with a united based of support to field against this jackass Romney and overwhelm him and the MSM hyping for him, like a massive, grassroots, electoral tsunami. The numbers bear out the fact Bishop Romney will not be able to climb in the delegate toll and take the Republican base in the primaries, he will necessarily lose the nomination. And both the GOP Establishment (anti-Tea Party to a t), and the White House, will have conniption fits. We need a clear choice this November. No more crapping around with a RINO vs. a Socialist like last time. Some choice. With or without a conservative VP choice for convenient window dressing, to be unheard of after election and put away in the VP's mansion or attending foreign funerals.

Just FYI, Iowa delegates will not be chosen until June. This straw vote does not bind anyone to anything.

“If everyone unites..”

As my dad used to say: “If I was a cat I would have had kittens.”

Romney will win the nomination while the religious conservatives, foreign policy conservatives and libertarians pound each other into oblivion. That is the script the establishment has written. Just think of it as the GOP’s bridge to nowhere.

Santorum, Gingrich and Paul will stick around long enough to get Romney the nomination.

(I am the guy who said Obama would be President when most Freepers barely heard of the name and were certain The Wicked Witch would be the nominee...just saying... :-) )
