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.

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.

CNN

Sadly, Donna Brasille made a statement that is too true: Romney’s gains are mostly from his negative ads.

Currently,

Santorum strong in TN, OK. Holding even with Romney in OH.

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.

All of us need Newt. No matter who folks here are voting for, Newt is the only one able to reshape the media's framing of issues and gotchas.

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.

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.

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.

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.
