The best thing about this poll is the delicious possibility that Myth could actually finish last!

I could bring myself to vote for Santorum if it meant stopping Romney.

I don’t see one state making that big of a difference...

Is Minnesota a winner-take-all state?

Rewt Gingtorum will win (that is not a misspelling)! Neither should drop out. They will win as a team. Proportional assignment of delegates is the key.

Hummm... their last post on the website sez:

"Santorum holds a small edge there with 29% to 27% for Romney, 22% for Gingrich, and 19% for Paul."

Also, quote: "Minnesota looks like a toss up... with 29% to 27% for Romney, 22% for Gingrich, and 19% for Paul."

But, who knows - polling is very often indicative, very often dead wrong.

The real workers, the real conservatives, and the real true believers in the greatness of AMERICA, and real Christians.

One thing to keep in mind, is that with the dumbing down of American children in the Gubmint schools, the concept of American EXCEPTIONALISM is foreign to most people other than the “over the hill crowd” of which I am a member.

I would credit the high percentage showing for Santorum, to be a result of the hard work he has done in pounding the concept into (young) Minnesota minds, and slowly bringing the average person to realize what a great Country we still (just barely) have, and what we need to do in order to prevent its being stolen out from under us.

I have been rooting for Newt; but God is sovereign, and I pray that in this crucial time, He will promote the man of His choice. Amen.

I recently posted a similar comment on a Missouri thread regarding Santorum’s apparent lead in polls there. I think it also applies in MN.

I will never vote for Mitt, ever.

But I would gladly pull the lever for Santorum if it meant sticking it to Romney, even though I am a die hard Gingrich fan.

I would really like to see a Santorm/Gingrich or Gingrich/Santorum ticket so we can end Romney once and for all.

Where do you differ with him on policy? I find that I differ more with Gingrich on policy than with Santorum but not by an insurmountable amount. And I find that Willard Bishop Romney is totally off the charts for me, in disagreement with my position, as is Crazy Uncle Ron Paul. For me the simple choice is not only a defensive one (with Santorum) as a “block” against Romney going into juggernaut mode, as much as it is a proactive vote FOR Santorum, for his conservatism both economic and cultural, and for what he stands for, the fact he could clean Obongo’s clock in debates and appeal to a whole new generation of Americans who need to be told the truth of their county under extreme decay with the regime we have in power now, is telegenic, has low negatives and less baggage. Truly, I am convinced the DNC internals show Santorum the guy to beat, and they are going to have a cake walk with Romney, maybe less so with Gingrich.

I don’t see Santorum cleaning Obama’s clock in debates necessarily. The problem is Santorum has been very inconsistent in debates. He usually has a good answer or two, but rarely runs the table throughout the debate. And he’s put in some very bad nights where he rambles on or whines too much about not getting enough time or stuff like that. I also find Newt to be more inspiring and creative with his ideas. Santorum. But I have no complaints with them on the ticket together. Newt would be great at the top of the ticket to debate Obama, but also good as a V.P. who could back Rick up, be out there defending their administration on talk shows and stuff. Newt is most valuable perhaps as a communicator and could do that almost as effectively as V.P. Practically speaking, they just would not differ on policy that much. On some issues, I think Newt could talk Rick into the space program stuff if it really doesn’t increase the budget and just reassigns priorities.

The Not-Romneys are still alive and well and that’s a good thing. I think the best thing to do right now is vote for whoever is performing the best against Romney in the poll right before that state’s election. Romney needs to be embarrassed, defeated, humiliated above all else to kill his momentum and inevitability yet again. I think Rick would be EXTREMELY likely to pick Newt as a V.P. He needs the gravitas. Newt would not be as likely to pick Rick unless he had to. But the ticket with either of them on top is a million billion times better than a Romney ticket. So any defeat for Romney is a good thing. Newt or Rick winning every state from here on would be good, right? I’d like to hear for sure though if they can combine delegates easily and join on one ticket at the convention, or if the RNC would screw that up somehow if Romney had the highest plurality, but not a majority.

Would be nice if Newt would tell the voters to support Santorum since it seems he has ZERO chance of winning. Funny how it works for Santorum but can’t be said for Newt. Hypocrites all around.

It’s all about momentum. Newt has lost all of his since SC which seems a life time ago. It seems like Newt should just drop out and support Santorum. It seems inevitable anyway.

"It seems like Newt should just drop out and support Santorum."

Nonsense. Newt has 30 delegates. Santorum has 2. Even if Santorum wins all three primaries tomorrow, he won't get a single new delegate, because none are awarded at this stage in those states. Since SC, Newt has one win and has not finished lower than second. Since SC, Santorum has no wins and hasn't finished higher than next-to-last.

Newt's going to win big in Georgia, which has 78 delegates, putting him well over 100 delegates. Newt's also going to do well in the other southern states on Super Tuesday. Plus Santorum hasn't even begun to be the object of Mitt's special attention. Just wait and see what millions in Mitt's attack ads do to thin-skinned Ricky boy.

Someone wake this guy up from his dream...

The last several weeks starting from South Carolina, Newt was either first or second. Newt was the one taking 100% of the pounding from Romney, his PACs, the GOP dinosaur establishment AND the useful idiot national media. That means even after all that, Newt has come in second in Florida and Nevada.

Newt should point out to the press that Ron Paul was EXPECTED to come in second in Nevada since he spent much more time and money in that state. Both Ron and Rick were in Nevada before Newt and still finished in the rear... Maybe it is both the message and the messenger.

It is semi-proportional. 24 delegates are awarded by congressional district, another 10 go to the overall winner, and the remaining six are the state party leaders.

Great. Let Santatorum Claus get some delegates. Whatever. At least they’re not going to Mitt. The one with the most delegates wins ... In the end, that person could have a relatively low number ...but they still win.

I agree we don’t have to settle for Mitt at this point. If Gingrich can stay in long enough to hold the South, Santorum is strong in the Midwest and Rust Belt, Paul some delegates from each caucus...there is a very good argument against a candidate only winning the Northeast (+FL), a couple of Atlantic states and the Mormon belt of Mountain states out West.

I'm a bit puzzled by Rick's success here in the Midwest. Missouri I can understand, Newt isn't on the ballot. Minnesota is a very liberal state. I am not sure what is going on there, but Pawlenty the loser is bashing Newt 24/7.

I'd be interested to see a poll in my communist State of Illinois. It is still early and I'm not ready to take my Newt sign out of the front yard yet.

MN and CO will have NON-BINDING delegates. The delegates will not actually be awarded until the district conventions in late March, early April. Missouri has no delegates awarded at all today. We still have a LONG way to go.

Pawlenty the loser is bashing Newt 24/7.

Was Pawlenty bought off (in whatever coin) by Mitt? Wasn't he the one who pointed out early the similarities between ObamaCare and RomneyCare and came up with ObamneyCare or something, but a reporter or interviewer later asked him more about this and he just shied away from the topic?

ROmney will be finished if Tricia Erickson keeps getting local radio shows to promote her book: CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS. Tricia’s father was a Bishop the same time Romney. She tells all from the inside position.

Gonna buy the book and donate it to the school library when done.

I agree... these guys can pull a plurality among a number of these states... Santorum wins the Midwest, Gingrich wins in the South... and you put Romney’s abortion and gay rights record up and the convention and the coronation won’t happen.

I find Sanctimonium to be a more telegenic compassionate, big govt. conservative than Bush, but with one major tactical problem - his rhetoric is needlessly divisive and high stakes. He goes too far in his rhetorical defense of his social positions - he should not feel the need to brandish his conservative credentials over and over again. I am afraid this would turn off voters in droves (particularly women) in the general. He does not seem to have the discipline to hold back from sermonizing on social topics, i.e. too easy to take bait from questioners. I wish he had a smoother style which would deflect social questions and segue into economics.

Gingrich is actually more disciplined on taking bait on social questions - he is more apt to go off the rails on other topics, and he will pay a smaller price than Sanctimonium because of that. But both will score very poorly with women in the general because of different reasons - S because of his rhetorical indulgence on social topics and G because of his angry/mean demeanor which does not come across as cool and likeable. Unfortunately, Mullah Obama is a lot cooler in temperament than both S and G.

Bottom line - my concern with S and G is more on campaign tactics than policy. I can go with either. I am afraid they are both poor campaigners (although G may be a better debater).

Moroni of course, has a different problem, one of policy, but he is also showing himself to be less and less disciplined on the campaign trail. On paper, the only theoretical advantage Moroni has over S and G is one of electoral balance sheet - he will do better than S or G in swing states like NH, NV, MI and AZ because of different reasons. Also, I expect him to score much higher with women than either S or G. The problem with Moroni is his background (and now his gaffes) which may become too much of a millstone that could sink him.
