Mitt Romney won the Arizona primary and was clinging to a small but persistent lead over Rick Santorum in Michigan Tuesday with about half of precincts reporting.
The former Massachusetts governor had been widely expected to win Arizona. Michigan was the fiercer battleground, and Mr. Santorum hoped a victory there would help him offset Mr. Romney's advantages in money, organization and experience.
But Mr. Romney held a lead of several percentage points in his native state, where his father was governor. If the narrow margin held up, it would give Mr. Romney momentum but might not dispel doubts about his ability to unify the party.
With 50% of Michigan's precincts reporting, Mr. Romney had 40% of the vote to Mr. Santorum's 36.2%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 11.5%, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 6.6%.

In "Michigan"? When did I say in Michigan? My comment was meant to be about the national polls.
Many people are ignorant of the dangers of a Romney candidacy. This video was meant to be a satire but the end of it would be a great ad against Romney. Look at it, towards the end. It makes the points why Obama would love to run against Romney.
Spot on! I got “in line” and voted for Arnold and that type of stench is eternal. I will not exchange a tyrant for a dictator.
I’m aware of that. I’m curious, that’s why I asked you what I did. I don’t recall Newt ever being up in Michigan, but perhaps my memory is wrong.
Hardly. Anyone who thinks Romney is another McCain is just flat wrong. Unlike McCain, Romney can surely beat 0bama and by a landslide. Look, we would all like Reagan to come back and my vote is with Newt but JOB ONE is getting the OBOZO OUT OF OFFICE!!!! If you think Romney is a Democrat, FINE. IF VOTING FOR A DEMOCRAT IS WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THE MARXIST OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, I’LL GLADLY DO THAT. IT’S A START!!!!
Don’t judge all of AZ because they once again made a dumb decision. Well, on second thought go ahead and judge the idiots...just don’t lump ME in with THEM!
No you don't. Trust me.
We don't have them at my unnamed place of employment for a REASON. UNLESS you employ a Citrix solution. Then, maybe, but we employ another two layers of security beyond just ID/PW, just to be triple sure.
Even then, we are abandoning even three-layer info-based security and going to a PIV card. Gotta have the card or no-way-Jose, and this is using CITRIX.
It pays to be a paranoid conspiracy freak in our field.
YOU? Naaaaaaaaaa.............you are SO cool...!!! Always have been, always will be.
I’ve seen Montana, what used to be..and still is in a lot of areas...a really neat state...being bought up by REALLY wealthy libs and voting accordingly.
My concern is just a generalized one. Not you. :)
How the heck did I manage to hijack my own thread and start discussing web security? LOL
Correct. As a Tucsonan Newt voter, I can tell you that there are plenty of good conservatives in AZ. Problem is, the major population centers have seen most of their population increases over the last couple of decades via liberals fleeing the conditions they created in their erstwhile states of residence, and bringing those values to AZ.
Obama wants Romney? Is that why Michael Moore urged everyone to vote for Santorum? Obama’s scared chitless of Romney because unlike Obama, he UNDERSTANDS AND SUPPORTS FREE-MARKET CAPITALISM.
Sounds like California. If we could get rid of 99% of LA and San Francisco....we’d have a state to DIE for...
Yes. Obama wants Romney.
LOL! Maybe we need to resurrect The State of Jefferson and we can all move there?
Let me repeat this: Obama wants Romney. He’s practically campaigned against the one percent in hopes that he’d have Romney to campaign on class warfare with in the election.
Obama loathes Wall Street, and who represents Wall Street more than Mitt Romney. This goes back to Occupy Wall Street. It’s really that simple.
Okey Dokey! Works for ME!
Absolutely agree with you. There are so many libs that move HERE because they didn’t like it THERE and once they’re HERE they want to make it like it was THERE!!!
I first came to AZ in 1995. Since that time it has seen monstrous immigration from California as the libs take it further down the spiral.
People say that this is an excuse. It is not. Its the truth. Look at the growth of places like Bullhead City, Kingman, Lake Havasu City and the Burbs of the Phoenix/Tucson/Flagstaff areas. Most of those new residents came from either Mexico or California.
The old timers (and bear in mind, most of AZs population was imported at some point otherwise the Tribes and a few others would be the only residents) that used to be the bedrock conservative base of the state are overwhelmed by straight liberals and Cali RINOs that hate the regulation of Cali, but still want the services and bennies they got there.
Wherever I may end up, I will bring with me my Midwestern upbringing.
I may LIVE in CA right now...but I’m proud to say I was raised by a farmer..,
All I want is a fabric store, a few grocery stores.. and for good measure... A STARBUCKS!!!
Thanks for your input!! I really DO want to stay this side of the Rockies..
Hate to say it but the time would come to cut my losses and see what happens with every intention of voting 3rd party if Romney get nominated. Romney or Obama wins and its over for America. So I would rather hell freeze over than vote for Romney or Obama. Instead of supporting the republican Obama version I will still be attacking Romney and Obama. I won’t cave on principal. But that is me. And that is why I was with Bachmann who had a 100% conservative rating till she dropped out. But I also supported Cain and I will vote for Santorum in my Caucus and for Newt if he wins in the general. But Romney is a bridge too far.
We haZ those...
Unfortunately Cali’s enviro edicts, Homosexual nazis (and their ‘new way’, and other ‘big’ issues, along with people wholly unable to operate motor vehicles, meth heads and other criminals fleeing the 3 strikes law and the like came with them.
Even since I’ve been here (and Las Vegas a few of those years - same problems there too) it is a 180 turnaround in the makeup of the state. It is like dropping a bunch of Mass/Conn libs into Texas and saying “OK boys, fix it!” Except Texas didn’t need their brand of “fix” and neither did AZ or NV. Not that it stops them...
Now if you get away from all that into the boonies, it’s a lot like the old days with an armed and old-school populace...to a point. But you lose the JoAnn’s and the Coffee shops too.
That is nobel sentiment, but take the example of Europe, in particular my country the UK.
We used to be as conservative as you, we were the original conservatives..........and why have we been so massively reduced to a socialist state in all but name?
Not because these left wingers were so electable and popular, but because our conservatives were infaltrated, and watered down from within.......it is a gradual process, but the GOP seems to have shockingly sped this up with successive moderate candidates........all in the hope of a bit of power. It is nothing but oneupmanship....reds vs blues.......they have become so blinkered they have forgotten what they once stood for, as did our conservatives....mark my workd, take it from someone that has seen the exact same liberalisation of a so called conservative party......the day you wake up to a GOP leader throwing his support behind tax and spend policies and the liberal social agenda draws closer and closer. Romney is just the start.
Needed is to somehow or other get Rick Santorum out of the race. Romney and Newt are capable of winning in November, I don’t see how Santorum could win. I’d be perfectly happy with any one of the three in the whitehouse but we have to win, the alternative is unthinkable.
Well, maybe not Bernie..............
