Freepers, Newt Supporters: 46 States to go (Mitt's Gotta Face the South Again Soon)
Freeper TitansAFC | 1-31-2012 | TitansAFC

Posted on 01/31/2012 8:05:07 PM PST by TitansAFC

Four down, forty-six to go!

First, I would like to Congratulate Mitt Romney! No, really! Between he and his Super PAC, Team Romney dumped over 25 million dollars into Florida since the beginning of the campaign which, along with the diabolical coordination with formerly credible GOP media personalities in a massive Establishment smear campaign, resulted in Mitt Romney getting less than 200,000 votes more than he got four years ago!

The result was a plurality win in a four-person primary where only two candidates even attempted to win the state. At least as impressive a performance as winning a basketball game against a team that only fielded four players!

But he'd better get busy again! At his current return of about one delegate per $500,000 in combined spending, he's going to need nearly $600,000,000 to buy the necessary support to be the GOP nominee in August!

On a bright note, my Freeper Friends, it gets better from here. You see, Mitt was expected to take places like NH and FL, places where it is hard to fight an Establishment favorite. But his troubles are only beginning: as seen in the polls posted in the last few days, he trails miserably in the South - states with disproportionately large numbers of delegates with many winner-takes-all Primaries. He is also second or third in most polls of key midwestern states, like Missouri, Ohio, and Minnesota. To top that off, he is at BEST in a statistical tie with Newt in national polls, despite his massive money advantage!

Georgia alone has nearly 80 delegates, a lot more than Florida, and Newt will clean house there. Don't even get me started on the sweetest plum, Texas, where Newt is a favorite and our friend Captain Perry is circling the wagons for Gingrich! Texas has 155 delegates, NC 55 delegates, Ohio 66 delegates, Alaska 50 delegates, and they are all Newt country right now!!

http://www.2012presidentialelectionnews.com/2012-republican-primary-schedule/

As you see above, the longer the campaign, the more it favors Newt Gingrich! Mitt may win some states here early, but he is breaking the bank to do so. And if he's struggling this hard to win states he should win easily, image what it's going to be like for him when he faces more South Carolina type places in the future!

To arms! To arms! Keep up the good fight, keep fighting! We WILL win this thing in the end because the state delegate count favors us GREATLY as the campaign goes on! Mitt can't win in the South, he struggles mightily in the midwest, and he won't win in the corn belt.

The fight has only just begun! Mitt has broken the bank, and has only a small lead to show for it in delegates. We are in good position, and we will prevail in August and then November!!!!!!!

$25 million to Newt’s $5 million

Wow, Newt did really good! Not to mention that 99% of the ads the $25 million bought were personal attack ads against Newt.

He WILL NOT carry the South........Ever.

Money simply cannot buy that one.

Does Mitt or his PACs from hell have enough money to do something like this in every single state that he and Newt are fighting over? And Newt barely had a chance to even get a squeak on the Florida airwaves — what happened, did Mitt literally buy up all the time leaving nothing for Newt to buy?

Lots of delegates yet to distribute. I expect Romeny will do well in Nev and Mich, but the south and the rest of the midwest is good for Newt. When Santorum graciously steps aside the conservatives will unite.

This will be a slugfest. Mitt has pulled out all of the stops and we’ve now seen all he has. Newt still has plenty up his sleeve.

If Romney beat Newt by a “landslide” 14 points, Newt OBLITERATED Santorum by an embarassing 20 point spread after being attacked by Romney and the GOP-E for ten days. Rick is toast.

This was our Battle of the Coral Sea, it hurt both sides bad, we are heading towards our Battle of Midway, where we WILL Fight back against the RINO's that are waging war against us Conservatives, and Romney's anti-conservative coalition is starting with Allen West), that is what Romney will do, he will marginalize the Conservatives in the Party and appoint only Liberals.

Then Romney will create his Vichy Republican Party, we could call it the "Whig" party because they stand for nothing, doesn't fight back against the democrats and fears the responsibility of Leadership.

The (Not so)GOP can either Put up a real Conservative, or Shut up and get the Hell out of National Politics!

13,000 ADs for Romney 200 for Newt

The establishment are so for a north east RINO that they are not even looking at how bad their guy is doing and with all of his money then add how he got less votes and how many of us including me and my family will never vote for Romney then they really are so arrogant that they cannot see past their elitist cross dressing homosexual parties

Florida could work in Newt’s favour.

Many conservatives are genuinely concerned about Mitt getting the nomination. Since we all saw just how dirty the GOP can get to get their way, it will hopefully get Conservatives in the other states to vote enmasse for Newt.

Romney’s $25 million vs Newt’s $5 million

This is proof that Newt knows how to get the BIGGEST bang for his buck. A true conservative. No doubt that Newt would be the one to balance the budget just by looking at these numbers.

Newt also has a history of balancing the budget

I’m afraid to think what Romney would do to this nation. Those numbers for Romney are nothing to be proud of when you really look into it.

CHA-CHING!! I have worked heart and soul for Newt in Florida these past weeks, as well as SC nationally, and I actually felt good about things after his speech. I know perspective and all that matters, but I think he knew he had to lead tonight... I was listening hard and didn't detect a single note of pessimism or second-guessing in his voice at all...

People, especially men, I have noticed tend to really perform almost supernaturally when their survival is at stake - like Newt's was in SC... I think he knew he needed to buck up the troops tonight and went out and did that...

that's our newtie, he's a cutie!!

How does Newt get to be the conservative after his anti-capitalist, politics of envy attacks on Romney? I was ready to support Newt. At this point I think he is a loony toon and I’m supporting Romney so at least we have a chance to win.

I guess I seriously have to question my fellow tea partiers. Are we just a bunch of prejudiced, anti-morman, populist bigots?

I've been noticing the LDS coming out with more and more "I'm just like you, I'm mormon" commercials.

The LDS is doing its part to help Mitt. I just wish evangelicals would come out against his faith.

He backed away from that quickly. I think he was getting desperate for something new to throw at Romney; a mistake, but it had become a free-for-all. Not excusing it but it doesn't make him a liberal.

I just watched our local news (Columbus, OH) and they showed the latest PPP poll. It seems that both Newt and Santorum are beating Mitt in the polls here in OH. I don’t think Romney will take our state. Yay!

The thing is most states use proportional method in allocating their delegates
. So, it depends also how big the win/lose each in their ‘natural region. Can Romney attract 20-30% in the Southern states? Can Newt get 20-30% in non Southern states?

Romney:

roughly spent $25 million
roughly 750,000 votes
roughly $33 per vote

Gingrich:

roughly spent $5 million
roughly 500,000 votes
roughly $10 per vote

The big problem with the 25 million dollars is that Mitt’s rich Communications pals got most of it.

Very little of it will bleed down to those who need it.

It has nothing to do with his religion. Newt has made some mistakes by putting his foot in his mouth, but, that’s nothing compared to Romneycare and Obamacare coming our way. Care to defend it?

Thank you, T, for the positivity.

Last night Hannity was telling Newt how good this process is because it makes the candidates stronger.

Newt just gave him that fatherly smile with a twinkle in his eye, you know the one. I wanted to strangle Hannity - it was as if he’d said, ‘Child abuse isn’t so bad, it puts starch in your collar!’ I’d like to see how Hannity would hold up.

Newt was so cordial, as if he knew there was no way Hannity or anyone could possibly know what it really takes.

I’m glad Newt has the humility to say, don’t vote FOR me, vote WITH me, because I can’t do it by myself.

He’s not feeling sorry for himself - he knows the game.

A friend once told me, even a little Christmas tree light has all the power of the Hoover Dam behind it.
I’m praying to know that God is our Hoover Dam, empowering Newt and all of us, giving us strength to conquer this mountain.

I would suggest that you not defy Jim Rob’s explicit orders not to pimp for Mitt Romney at FR.

It is comments like “anti-Mormon bigots” that reinforce how right we are when we say that a Romney presidency will be 95% the same as an Obama Presidency. Just switch “You hate him because he’s black” to “you hate him because he’s Mormon.”

The dirty little secret is: There are gobs more people supporting Mitt Romney JUST BECAUSE he’s Mormon than there are people opposing him because of his religion.

And it was Mitt Romney who started the “anti-Capitalist attacks,” not Newt. Newt just didn’t have the GOP media in his pocket to spread the meme.

"When Santorum graciously steps aside the conservatives will unite."

Santorum has a Romney-like attack ad against Newt up already in the next state.

He's confident that his will work like Romney's did in Florida. He's going negative on Newt.

We can hope that Florida has gone brain dead and the rest of the states can come through, but the new America is not what it used to be, so I am not very optimistic. (I would love to be, believe me!)

We will know soon, and America needs to step up and send Florida a message. Romney will ruin this country if they don’t.
