250K? Can that even be possible?
Or some of your team are, it is time for you to Jump in in South Carolina...
Romney hack John Sununu just told CNN that his candidate is afraid of the debates and that he wants the media to keep some of the other candidates out (ie Newt)
It;s slash and burn time. I hope Newt rips this guy to shreds. I could care less if Newt gets more than 5% in any primary as long as he continues to rip the veneer off this phony Lib Mittens Romney.
God help the USA
If Newt sacrifices himself to knock out Romney, Gov. Palin could then step into the breach.

We’ll see, won’t we. I think Santorum and Huntsman have both hit their high water mark by camping out in one state, not by the strength of their campaigns.
Heck. I’m ready to start drinking, and certainly not in celebration, right HERE and its only 10:30 in the morning!
Tea Party needs to come out in support of Newt.
Jim Robinson should hit the trail too. Go JIM - Tea Party for Newt!
Jim does have influence among Conservatives and Tea Party.
Which is why Perry won Iowa? I’m just not seeing it. :)
Buddy Roemer is on the charts! <1%
Neener neener! Perry beat Roemer!
I think if Palin and Cain are smart they will not endorse anyone. Palin may be prohibited or at leery of doing so by virtue of her FOX contract. Herman might just want to keep on doing TV commentary on 999.
Right now I am in the Anyone But Obama crowd. I want to get on with a campaign against the reelection of Obama. Stop the circular firing squad and let's get this campaign on the road!
Laura is a single mother by choice (3 times over). She’s not a role model for motherhood for our nation. Children need a father and a mother.
Actually, most of the "motor voters" are for Paul, who finished polling at 17% but is garnering 25%.
Wow. (Keene is in Cheshire, isn't it?)
I think Newt takes 5th here.
Santorum’s just pummelling him in Cheshire. 15 to 7. It’s only 7 percent in and the Newt supporting areas are 35 percent in.
The glass is always “half full” with you!
Romney, Mitt GOP 14,409 35%
Paul, Ron GOP 10,105 25%
Huntsman, Jon GOP 6,877 17%
Gingrich, Newt GOP 4,172 10%
Santorum, Rick GOP 4,095 10%
Perry, Rick GOP 271 1%
Perry with 1% in NH and you want us to support that?
We all knew that NH was liberal, and yet we all have a collective meltdown when an lib and a nutbar are winning.
Chin up people. SC and FL are the states that matter here.
In 2004 W was running unopposed so I “crossed over” to vote for Lieberman in the SC Dem primary.
He was the most conservative liberal.
Romney, Mitt GOP 14,554 35%
Paul, Ron GOP 10,226 25%
Huntsman, Jon GOP 6,962 17%
Gingrich, Newt GOP 4,231 10%
Santorum, Rick GOP 4,148 10%
Perry, Rick GOP 277 1%
Yep, Santorum scored big with the ‘most conservative voters’. He’s winning among everyone who calls himself a conservative.
But most of the voters here are ‘moderates’, and guess who is just killing there. ;)
Newt is 4th - behind Santorum, Romney and Paul. Newt is pulling better among the moderates and liberals.
Why would anyone say this? What is Romney afraid of?
Did a Romney surrogate really just ask a CNN journalist to assist in keeping Newt out of a debate? Isn't that anti what this nation is all about?
That is DISGUSTING. ROMNEY, the scared little punk is disgusting and needs a 72 year old man, John Sununu, to whine to CNN to keep Newt off the stage, because Newt is the only one brave and articulate enough to expose Romney's Liberalism?
We need a youtube video of the mess that is known as John Sununu and Romney. Threatening the media to keep Newt out of debates.
If a CONSERVATIVE unseats Mitt Romney in South Carolina and takes the lead, watch for the MSM to dismiss it (the state of SC, its primary, its voters and what not), or to downplay it, while if Romney wins SC the chorus that he is "unstoppable for the nomination now" will be deafening.
It is just two narratives the American Government-Media Establishment (MSM) choose from and put in as their template of commentary, depending on whether a RINO or a Conservative wins the state. They will use and switch accordingly.
Wow, Mitt has really stepped it up a few hundred notches with this speech. We’re looking at the next president! Loving it!! GO MITT!!!
Fourth or fifth is a distinction without a difference when it is by only a hundred votes or so. It’s obviously a tie between the two and both are on the block to do well in SC. I think Newt is probably done after the Bain deal, Romney hit him hard on it in his victory speech saying that Newt was using the “politics of envy.”
Did you forget the sarcasm note?
25 percent in!
Santorum just 15 votes behind Newt.
Romney, Mitt GOP 15,121 35%
Paul, Ron GOP 10,705 25%
Huntsman, Jon GOP 7,194 17%
Gingrich, Newt GOP 4,410 10%
Santorum, Rick GOP 4,342 10%
Perry, Rick GOP 292 1%
I got the bottom part closeness between Gingrich and Santorum right and Perry pretty close. Huntsman was up at 18%
This Ron Paul 25% BS is alarming. The only plus side, Romney is below McCain’s 2008 levels. How the media spins this as a victory is amazing.
Yeah, I’m a bit baffled at everyone’s shock, the results are very close to recent polling.
The only difference between the results so far and the polling is Paul’s extra 5% or so, likely the result of unusually high unaffiliated turnout (which may have been hard to predict or model in polling; of course, every time a poll DOES include anyone other than registered Republicans, FR has a cow over it.)
No, no, no. These states have reduced delegates due to early voting penalties, so that combined they make up about 5% of the total (and they are NOT winner take all. A SuperTuesday state like Tennessee has MORE delegates than FLORIDA. Georgia has more than Florida, Iowa and New Hampshire combined. The structure has changed also because there is more proportional voting in many of the states.
I am going to caucus for the RNC Tampa Convention here in Colorado on Feb 7th for a Triple Option Delegate slot, a Gingrich/Santorum/Brokered delegate. I will be willing to bargain between these 3 outcomes depending on relative strength that emerges.
This is an ANTI Romney website. Thankfully, Romney supporters get banned pretty quickly around here. In case you haven't read the owner's words:
Welcome to Free Republic, America's exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!
ObamaCare = RomneyCare = CommieCare. NO Romney! NO WAY!!
Are you really cheering for Mittens here or did you forget the /sarc tag?
Paul could actually become the kingmaker at the convention, perish the thought.
Newt is getting squeezed out, that’s the problem.
The libertarians have Paul. The moderates have Romney. The Conservatives have Santorum.
Newt draws from all the buckets, but the only folks voting for him are those over 65. That’s it.
That’s the only demographic where he really stands out from the crowd. This is why I’ve been pushing for us to get behind Santorum and consolidate the conservative vote against Romney. Santorum consistantly draws from Conservatives moreso than Newt.
Paul doing so well is alarming!!!!!!!!!!! what is in the drinking water in NH? must be imported from Iowa. I wish those two states were not first in the gop primarys. Would prefer two bright red states and would prefer that Paul run as a Libertarian and get OUT of the gop
For some reason the magical number for me would be 37%, he ain't their... Was that McCains number or someone elses? I can't understand where it comes from but..
More importantly, 65% voted for a Non-Romney...
This is what drudge has in red
HISTORIC: ROMNEY WINS IA, NH IN OPENING SWEEP... DEVELOPING...
Romney lied about creating 1000’s of jobs.
Newt is exposing that lie and Conservatives are thankful that Newt is exposing the LIAR.
And now a public service message:
Excellent! Could make South Carolina REAL interesting...
Mitt supporters not welcome here.
Santorum is from up North too but he loves Jesus and was never for abortion,homosex or taking away our guns—so he is alright.
If Perry comes in last..he should drop out before SC and unite behind Newt
