Newt Gingrich is coming to my state on March 8, and I'm going to Jackson to see him!

Then he's going to Kansas!

I'm not sure about Mississippi now. Evangelicals seem to be one issue social voters and not very concerned about much else.

I'm convinced Newt Gingrich has to be our next Commander in Chief.

Newt Gingrich at AIPAC today

Barring some sort of shocking result in ND or Idaho, it should be pretty clear to all that tonight’s big loser is RON PAUL.

If Paul gets out, we can start having A REAL PRIMARY.

For such a smart guy he sure gets a minimal amount of votes. Any theories on that?

At some point even the most ardent Newt supporters are going to have to come to terms with the fact that the nominee will either be Romney or Santorum. Whether that's sooner or later for you is up to you.

Right, I see, and aren’t the later counties the ones that Santo is not on the ballot in? Only 2-3% is not much with so many still out. especially the counties that are strong Romney.

I would love to see Romney get beat in Ohio. Mainly for symbolic reasons.

Paul’s a loon with robust financial backing, and a small but ardent core of supporters.
He’ll be there all the way to the convention, I’d guess.

If Santorum takes Ohio tonight, it will be ABSOLUTE EGG all over the faces of RINO officialdom. No wonder on line Ohio is being downplayed and it seems hard to find the MSM really beating the Ohio drum. Being outspent 12 to 1 there by Bishop Romney, with scurrilous non-stop attacks/mailers/robocalls/big name endorsements, and still stopped the RINO in his tracks. WOW! Love it when a plan comes together, when there is a grassroots conservative revolution against the Established Order.

Everyone please! Come join us in this FIGHT!! CLOSE RANKS TO STOP ROMNEY, he will only get more desperate and nasty.

Remember Newt is on the rise after having been "killed" a second time. Santorum's coming off a momentum peak.

TN is disappointing but Romney likely sewed up the counties with Memphis & Nashville (represented by Dems in the House) like he did in 2008 and Santorum did better in the rest of the state like, as I recall, McCain had. Santorum's edge in TN is his family story.

Tennessee rules dictate that his delegates will be appointed later. Getting delegates on the ballot insures that the Party elites can do no mischief.

There's a long way to go, and both gas the blood pressure of millions is goin' up by the day.

Newt is the only one of the four with the truly strategic vision needed to pull our Republic back from the brink of marxist anarchy.

Give that halfrican maggot another four years and there'll be blood in the streets from sea to shining sea.

Juan Williams and David Hume attacking the Newt speech. ASSES!

I was disgusted by that BIG TIME!!!! What a horrible thing to say for a candidate that is having a great night. I am for Santorum but damn people know the snarky remarks towards Newt. Tonight should be a celebration for Newt and Rick. The result tonight should be to end Romney.

“For such a smart guy he sure gets a minimal amount of votes. Any theories on that”

Who has been attacked with the vast majority of cash driven negative ads, but still able to stay in the race against the wishes of the all powerful establishment?

What does that tell you about Newt’s ability to get votes?

That’s FOX these days. So IN THE TANK FOR WILLARD ROMNEY, and anti-Santorum, anti-Gingrich. Really, those two conservatives now should form some kind of alliance and go 2 vs 1 on Romney (though Romney has his “Paul” card up his sleeve).

Maybe this campaign is Ron Paul’s way of visiting nearly all the states one last time at campaign donor expense before he retires in 2013. He is definitely not a “nice man.”

Willard needs to be a severe patriot and drop out!!! LOL. Seriously, Willard really needs to be forced out! He's ruined this primary. I don't believe any of the other candidates, save for Ron Paul, would have resorted to the vile, nasty smearing attack ads like Romney's, yet the liar won't even call obama a socialist!

Romney's enemies are Tea Party conservatives.

Well, Fox did carry Newt’s entire speech after Georgia victory and just ran scores at the top or bottom. Newt talked 30 plus minutes and it was pure gold, but Fox did not switch away.

There are some Newt haters on Fox for sure, Brit Hume among them, but Fox is still the most fair news station and I get tired of people dissing them all the time.

Amen naps! for some reason Newt is the man the establishment absolutely detests and fear. From day one Krauthammer was saying Newt would never get above single digits in the polls. MEGA MILLIONS were spent attacking and smearing ONE man and that man is NEWT! to top it off Romney had Fox and you know the rest of the story on his side.

I will NEVER forget or forgive!

The latest I just heard is that the strongest Romney areas have not been counted yet. (Higher population)

With only 15% in, it is far from over. Cross your fingers and hope the numbers hold and Romney goes down in Ohio.
