I don’t like that at all. Sorry to hear that. I am sick of that. Give all of them equal time.

It has become painfully obvious that Britt Hume has a deep personal animus for Newt. He should either explain it or retire because it is very disturbing.

“Why was Newt so weak in Tenn and OK. That’s really disappointing.”

Early voting and the evangelicals went for Rick in TN. He isn't likely to get all of the delegates though.

Romney’s defeat in Ohio, will send his campaign into CHAOS.

I live in the communist enclave of Cuyahoga County in Ohio which probably will fall to Mitt but Cincy and Columbus could go Santo. Fasten your seatbelt because the ride will be long and very bumpy.

In a race this tough there are a few things Newt could have done better.

Sunday is perfect example.

Newt had to fae DNC Dave on meet the depressed/nbc on Sunday.

DNC dave started in on the BS/made up topic of contraception. At first Newt didn't want to discuss it and started in on other more important topics.

But then he caved and gave into DNC Dave. Big mistake IMHO. IF he had stood his ground with the driveby and focused instead on energy, the debt, deficit, no budget in 1,000 days,which Newt could have done easily,he could have made big new by dissing DNC Dave, but he didn't.

IMHO, this is the difference between winning and possibly not.

Brit's Newt hate is embarrassing.

Agree. Brit should recuse himself or go back into retirement.

He's no longer welcome.

The euphemism "Jumped the Shark" has been changed to "Lost it like Coulter". Brit has "Lost it like Coulter".

Fifty-eight delegates are at stake in TN. Each of the state’s nine congressional districts gets three delegates each, and those are handed out proportionally to the top three finishers. A candidate gets one if he takes at least 20 percent of the vote in the district, and he gets all three if he wins two-thirds of the vote.

Fourteen delegates are awarded proportionally based on the statewide vote. Candidates have to get at least 20 percent of the vote to get any, and they can take them all if they win two-thirds of the vote.

Another 14 delegates are chosen by the state party’s executive committee. Those typically are allocated based on the results of the primary.

Lastly the final three delegates are the state party chairman, the state’s committeeman at the RNC and the state’s committeewoman at the RNC, and they are uncommitted.

I cannot see Mitt winning Texas. It will be a tuff fight between Newt and Rick. At this point if Mitt losses Ohio he may well me through. You can never tell what California will do but sometimes the West still won’t vote for an Easterner.

There's no need for theories. Newt was destroyed in the late 90s by the Left and the establishment Right. In the campaign he's been written off three times already and is coming back for more in spite of tens of millions in negative ads run in every state from Iowa to Ohio.

Sooner or later Santorum supporters are going to have to come to terms with the fact their candidate is electoral poison. If we're very fortunate it will happen before Nov 6th. I believe the electorate is effectively suicidal.

(Santorum's now lying about his history with health care mandates. Shameless. HA! Just said he's "Truthful with the American Public.")

Newt continues to bounce back because he's the smart guy with big ideas and the electorate is clearly not enthralled with the establishment's bobbsey twins Mitt and Rick.

Rick Santorum is only having his time to shine (fifteen minutes of fame).
The only problem has been the timing. Rick Santorum is due to fall like a rock, as have other candidates. This election is between Newt and Romney.

Take heart Gingrich supporters. There is an upside tonight to perhaps a bigger issue, stopping Romney from winning the nomination.

Seeing that Gingrich only won his home State, the odds of a two man race have increased dramatically.

If that were the case, I don’t believe Romney can win the delegates required to win the nomination.

Simply stopping Romney is the lesser aspect of our concerns. We DO have to win one of the nastiest and most ruthless elections in the history of the human race, against Obama.

Santorum's already outlasted all the others and has taken as much or more fire from all sides. He won't drop like a rock, he's real people. This is race between Santorum and Romney.

Come on. (Howz about) Say something nice about your guy and leave Santorum out of it if you have nothing to say but negatives about him. That’s what I do, only the reverse, regarding the Speaker. Care to match me and take the challenge? Lets be conservatives first here but not tear each other up or down. How about a ceasefire on the anti-Newt and anti-Rick rhetoric here, and we turn political fire on Willard Romney (who must clearly be sidelined) and more importantly Obama who is the biggest threat and headache? I’m up for it, FRiend.

And yet Santorum continues to win . In the heartland, the south and now in the west by double digits. In America the guy who gets the votes wins and unlike you I think any one of the Republican candidates can and will beat Obama despite the cheap shots from a small percent of the right.

The “wins” are largely symbolic. What matters is the delegate count and the states are proportional. Newt is still collecting delegates outside Georgia tonight.
