Shepherd Smith has a deathly pallor tonight.

Looks like Santorum's got some more problems ahead. No only did he not make the Virginia ballot, not only is going to miss out on delegates in Ohio, but Illinois has the same problem and he won't be on the D.C. ballot at all.

Ed Rollins thinks this is over for Santorum if he can't stop Romney in Ohio.

The turnout in my district was the lowest I’ve seen in 20 years.

I was the fourth voter at 8:45 this morning. (Polls open at 6:00 to catch the people going to work)

Again, more than two hours later, I was the FOURTH!

The polling folks were so happy to see me I felt like a rock star!

Oh no biggie. I am just so excited about this night....I think Romney (hopefully) will get his butt kicked overall. I just pray he does not win Ohio. Fox News is pissing me off with their “MITT IS GREAT” crap.

Mark Levin said it will be a while before Ohio results are known. He said Ed Rollins said the millions of dollars may have an affect because many people in Ohio do not know Santorum. Romney has defined every one of his opponents as a big govt. liberal insider. Levin said it is interesting that all the insiders are endorsing ROMNEY!! But Romney has done something else...He has ticked off a bunch of people who know who Santorum and Gingrich are and they are not going to accept the trashing going on. Levin is saying Romney is counting on the fact that people will have nowhere else to go and will vote for him in the end. Levin said many are very angry right now. Levin said Fred Thompson despises Romney. (He has not said it to Levin but Levin can tell.) Giuliani despises him too. So...you cannot lock up the nomination by trashing and burning.

One of the two conservatives needs to get out and NOW. I don’t care if it’s Newt or Rick. We simply MUST have a candidate in November or else face then the same sickening conundrum the Rs in Virgina faced today.

Tuesday 6 March 2012: 46 of 49 of Virginia’s delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders in today’s Virginia Presidential Primary.

33 district delegates are to be bound to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the 11 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates and the presidential contender receiving the greatest number of votes in that district will receive all 3 of that district’s National Convention delegates.

13 at-large delegates (10 base at-large delegates plus 3 bonus delegates) are to be bound to presidential contenders based on the primary results statewide. Compute percentages to 3 decimal places, that is, 50.000%. The delegates are allocated to the presidential contenders as follows:

If a candidate receives 50.001% or more of the vote, that candidate is allocated all 13 at-large delegates.

CainConservative had an interesting history. He was 100% for Cain and dumped on everyone. Then he was (for a short time) 100% for Newt and dumped on everyone. Then he was for Santorum and did the same.

LOL. I used to really like him!

Me too. But McDonnell was among those who shut down Cucinelli's attempts at legislation to allow all candidates on the ballot.

Then he endorses Mittens.

I'd not vote for this lame duck Governor again for anything!

Well, you won’t get an argument from me. I’m now a Southerner by choice and I can proudly state, “that the South has been saving the Union from the democrats for decades.” We’re solid red down here.

In fact, the first primary ought to be held in Mississippi where we atually have a Republicans from all walks of life, including rich, poor, college students, working men and women, military and black, yes black.

Gingrich may get all the delegates in GA if he is over the 50% threshold and it appears he has. Romney came in second in Georgia?

The real story in VA is going to be the pathetic low turnout.

Gingrich has said several times in interviews that most of Romney's wins have been in areas where turnout was lower than normal.

In Florida, Gingrich won every county where turnout was higher than normal.

Romney's negative ads are designed to reduce turnout. His commie voters will show up regardless.

If you are in one of the few states with a master lever or master oval, you can shade that, and it won’t feel like you are backing Mittens directly, which you will I predict eventually decide to do. Nearly all those now clamoring for others will still back Romney in the end, just as they did with McPain in 2008. And Mittens knows that.
