Senator Coburn will come forward to bring us all into the Romney column come November. It’s inevitable. OK is not enough for Santorum. He might could have taken TX had we had the primary on schedule.
Newt closing in on 50% of the vote in Georgia @ 48%.
Hopefully it will be known tonight. Juan said even with Gingrich winning his home State, it may not be enough to stay in the race. I doubt either Santorum or Gingrich will drop out anytime soon.
What’s this going around? Onyx has a tattoo of Newt on her nethers... and her husband drew it?? ;)
Those 60’s professors need to die off.
Well, I wish I hadn’t voted for GWB either, but there was no recourse otherwise.
Arrrrrrg.... Santorum now behind in Ohio! 39% Romney, 36% Rick.
CmonnnnnnnnnOHIO!!!! Flip it, flip it, flip it!!!!
Sadly, Donna Brasille made a statement that is too true: Romney’s gains are mostly from his negative ads.
Santorum strong in TN, OK. Holding even with Romney in OH.
I was willing to get behind McCain in 08, but this time feels different.
Ah, the deep thinker Juan speaks. (How can you tolerate listening to him?)
Newt's in this to win it!
Where are you getting those numbers? Drudge shows them tied and FNC saying we have a long way to go and is not showing anything yet.
Yeah the house. I don’t have any tattoos!
“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it”.
I don’t see how Rick survives to fight another election without both OH and TN, and both are doubtful. Many think they are supposed to vote for the one who is going to win the election. It’s like choosing the winner of a horse race. I’m afraid our little Republican primary voters will again leave us in dire straits.
It took me until election day to decide whether I would actually vote for McCain. In the end I went against my better instincts. I won’t make that mistake again. I’ve caved for the last time. No more McCains, Doles or Bushes. I’m done with ignoring my principles.
That was predicted, but good to keep another one out of Romney’s claws for sure!
Hmmm... OK not enough for Santorum.... GA not enough for Gingrich.... Your conclusion?
CSPAN shows Romney ahead by 3. Too fluid.
That will be critical going forward.
245 days to go.
So far with only 5% reporting Santorum is ahead of Romney by about 10 points in TN.
Shame! Vermont was a beautiful, serene, peaceful, eclectic place in the 60’s and 70’s. Then New Yorkers found it.... they ruin EVERYTHING!
Paulistas recognizing an opportunity and calling all their friends. Vintage Ron Paul supporter tactics. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’m not pro-Paul for President, but as a gadfly, God love him!
Real time precinct reporting numbers on HuffPo
Like I say, I hate HuffPo on general principle, but they hired some good folks to put this page together. It automatically updates without having to do a refresh. Saves my index finger.
Infested indeed! But, here in north western Carroll County, ther's not a rat in sight.
When they tell you that you must vote for Romney because Scalia and Kennedy might retire from the Supreme Court, you will be expected to come back on board. It’s inevitable.
CNN has exit polls, which is interesting - but one weird observation about CNN’s coverage - I think they picked the least flattering picture of each of the 4 GOP candidates that they possibly could’ve used. Newt and Paul appear to be yelling/scowling, Santorum looks completely befuddled, and Romney’s hair is all messed up - it looks like someone just gave him a noogie.
They are currently stinking it up in Red Hampshire...
This election is worse than 2008. At least McCain didn't spend 12-to-1 against his opponents spreading falsehoods and pure slime. Romney's going to win a Pyrrhic victory, pissing off the Gingrich and Santorum supporters to the point that a significant number will swear against voting for the sleazeball.
Ugh, thank you, but we didn't do well enough, clearly. And what is with Fox calling VA for Romney with 8% of the vote in?
You must think Senator Coburn is a magic man.
I’ll NEVER vote for Romney and I don’t give a rip who the he// he names his VP.
“They” may expect me to come back on board. “They” can, have and will be wrong.
I have no confidence that Mittens’ appointments will be any better than Barry’s.
Think it was she has a Victorian trollop/lady of the night, on her backside. That’s what I heard, plus her husband is pissed and he painted it over with house paint.
Indeed...poisoning the well.
Well, sadly, Lexinom, the conclusion is Mittens is inevitable. And we’ve all known that for months, but we just tried not to think about it. We can’t beat the establishment with divided opposition. Even “Bar” Bush knows that.
Lets hope it stays that way.
delegate count looking good for both Newt and anti-Romney.
GA, OK, and TN will give him over 100 delegates tonight alone!
Really? And what will he give us, another midnight Jogger aka Souter ? I hope he gets Sununu to help pick them.... ( s/ off )
ROTFL. I don’t even have a tattoo.....!
Thanks VG I checked it out but it froze my screen. I took it as a sign since I have not been to Huffypoo in 5 years...:)
This happens all the time, I don't know why people are continually shocked by this. CNN called Georgia for Gingrich with 0% of the vote in.
It's the combination of the exit polling AND the first voting returns. If the result is very clear in the exit polling and the exit polling in the districts that have vote totals in matches the actual votes, you can call the race.
Exactly. Politics is a dirty business, but there IS a fine line and Mittens crossed it repeatedly.
We can say things we don’t mean in March, but when Nov. 6 comes around, Mittens it sadly shall be. Rick and Newt will also endorse him.
Oh yeah, the sleazeball Romney's going to nominate conservative Justices. Right. Just like the judges he nominated in Massachusetts. Ooops!
“Let justice be done, though the heavens may fall.”
("My goodness, what are they teaching these kids these days?")
Yeah, an inevitable LOSER.
Dr. No may be well-liked because of his fiscal stands, but his judgement on people leave much to be desired. This is well-known in Oklahoma. Well known.
Oh, the fact that Mittens’ nominations might make Harriet Miers look good is beside the point. We know the Obama nomination will be bad, but there is a 20 percent chance Mittens will get it right.
Yea, I left Carroll County years ago when my parents got older to be closer by. I’m in Baltimore County now. My neighborhood is good and conservative but the county is going left quickly.
