Is he going to put his money where his mouth is and bow out and endorse Rick so the strongest conservative can battle Romney head to head? He’s been calling for that for weeks now.

I don’t anticipate that Newt will win the straw poll because the voting commenced early.

Santorum spoke early this morning and Romney spoke a few minutes ago.

Newt’s speech is already reported to be packed, standing room only, overflow. Likewise for Romney’s. Like Romney, Newt Gingrich will speak in the Main Ballroom.

"I don’t anticipate that Newt will win the straw poll because the voting commenced early."

From what I recall reading about the last CPAC these straw polls are a complete joke. The Ron Paul bunch get in there and vote early and then the polls close.

Dumb, dumb, and super dumb.

Besides the many, many ballot and delegate problems that Santorum faces here on that prevent him from being able to win the nomination, there is a little matter of staying power vs. bump.

Santorum has twice now had bumps. The first one subsided within a week to ten days, and he went back to his near permanent numbers of 11-15%.

Newt has been hovering in the mid to upper 20%s for a long time now. That’s staying power and support. Outside of the bump he gets after winning caucuses when he’s untouched, Rick tends to hover at 10%+ lower support than Newt.

If Santorum can maintian his bump for a full month until Super Tuesday, he’ll have some claim at being a legitimate alternative to Romney. For now, I expect he’ll soon see the same fallback he saw after Iowa. Whenever people are actually paying attention to him and challenging him, he fades.

It is not time for anybody to get out. Why don’t we see where we stand on March the 6th.
Raw vote totals:

Romney- 1,119,298; Gingrich- 838,352; Santorum- 430,787; Paul- 305,840
Delegate count right now:

Romney-90, with 17 non-binding
Santorum- 44, with 41 non-binding
Gingrich- 32, with 3 non-binding
Paul- 13, with 5 non-binding

Total Delegate count needed to win- 1144

If either Newt or Rick bow out, it will give Romney the delegates he needs to take the nomination. The best thing you can do for our country is to support the non-Romney candidate of your choice; together Newt and Rick will have enough delegates to get us a brokered convention.

OK, I’ve donated twice, have Newt bumper stickers on the cars and fully support him. That being said, Newt has to get away from “college history lectures” when he’s speaking. He also has to expand on the specific things he’s going to do....I know, he mentioned repealing laws, etc. but I’d like to hear more specific language...ie, that he’s spoken with Stephen Harper and will enact Keystone if elected. How much does he expect to lower the deficit in his first year. Is he willing to give educational vouchers that could be used in private schools? Don’t need to hear about accomplishments in the past...we know them, and they were good. What specifically will he do to stimulate the economy? Stay on offense...the moon isn’t our first priority. How will he fix our healthcare problem? He needs to hit it out of the park. He sure could use Sarah Palin to improve the likeability index. GO NEWT!!!

BAD?!
He has twice as many actual votes as Santorum and most of his delegates are binding. The only reason why Mitt is so far ahead is because of Florida’s 50. GEORGIA HAS 76 DELEGATES! And Newt will WIN here on March 6th.

When you say “non-binding” are saying those are in addition to the binding or part off.
Example:
Gingrich has 32 of those 3 are non-binding
Santorum has 44 of those 41 are non-binding

Right. He’s not there this year, but it’s usually been a fight between Paul and Romney. Apparently this year, Sanotrum is also trying to win.

It means that when the delegates vote, 41 of Santorum’s delegates are not obligated to vote for him. Only 3 of Newt’s are non-binding. Pledged delegates (binding delegates) MUST vote for that candidate. In other words, if Santorum tanks all 41 delegates can change their votes.

That’s a good response. I will tell you I would have written those totals different though.

This...

Romney-90, with 17 non-binding
Santorum- 44, with 41 non-binding
Gingrich- 32, with 3 non-binding
Paul- 13, with 5 non-binding

...led me to believe Romney had 106 delegates, not 90.

I would have presented these figures as...

Romney-73, with 17 non-binding
Gingrich- 29, with 3 non-binding
Santorum- 3, with 41 non-binding
Paul- 8, with 5 non-binding

Thank you for the mention.

Don’t be sorry. Others probably understood the information. It still baffles me how you win four out of seven events, and only wind up with 3 solid delegates.

Why even hold those four events? Sounds like a waste of time.

Thanks for posting the schedule, Sheik.

For those interested, Coulter got a very warm, civilized reception.

She touted her hero Romney as a great conservative in her speech.

When she passionately spoke standard fare Conservatism 101, she was good.

The rest of the time she was periodically incoherent, making obscure references and telling quips that fell absolutely flat....some were weirdly off-color.

At one point she started off on a screed similar to her manic rant on the BO'R show last week, but fortunately she managed to get herself under control before a butterfly net was called for.

Fifty-percent of her speech was bizarro. Her fans gave her a standing "O" upon completion.

IMHO, her speech was an "O", also.
