Rick may not need stuck in third place Newt to step aside and endorse him in order to beat Mitt Romney after all.

GO Santorum!!!

Newt came in 2nd in Oklahoma...as for Tennessee ..their demagraphics have changed quite a bit and people from all over live in the cities of TN...Memphis..I can understand but the Eastern part of TN baffles me in going for a yankee

I'm from east Tennessee. I think that people here appreciate Newt and are thankful for what he has done for our country. However, Santorum is more than appreciated for his stand over the years for the faith/values/social issues. His down-to-earth, family oriented manner rings true with many people of a similar nature in east Tennessee.

It isn't that we are anti-Newt. It's just that we are pro-Rick.

Disagree, as there's almost no chance Romney could beat Obama. That makes Romney our immediate danger.

With Santorum, we would have Conservative turnout, and in my lifetime, a Conservative Republican nominee has never lost a Presidential election.

Santorum just skinned Mitt alive over RomneyCare and said Mitt lied about the fact he gave Obama the idea for individual mandate (saw some stories on that this week but haven’t checked them out). He was on fire! Never seen Rick that angry.

Fox pundits too afraid to talk about Rick’s Mitt comments.

Three guys walk into a bar, a conservative, a moderate, and a liberal. The bartender says, “Hello, Mitt.”

"Santorum doesn’t get any delegates from TN? Why? He has 39% of the vote with 42% reporting."

I believe he didn't fill out the necessary paperwork or something like that. He could pick up the delegates committed to Huntsman or Perry or the uncommitteds. I think that could be up to 22 delegates.

“With Hume it is personal, somehow.”

Hume blames Gingrich for the outing/suicide death of his son, who was a reporter having a gay affair with almost-Speaker Republican Bill Paxon.

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.

There is no evidence for that conclusion. If Santorum can win Tennessee and Oklahoma, why cant he win Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas

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

Paul won’t get out - he’s stacking up convention delegates in every state so they can go to the national convention and elect him on the second ballot if there’s a contested election.

I’m enjoying a couple adult beverages while Freeping in an establishment just a stone’s throw from the Cleveland border while watching the returns. I can’t blame you for bolting but the brainwashed people of Cleveland could be the nicest people in the country. Too bad their knee jerk voting record is usually Rat even in the face of massive Rat corruption playing out in courts the last few weeks.

Look, I’m not your analyst or your Pastor so I can’t help you out much except to give you the truth. Newt does not get votes. Romney and Santorum do get votes. One of those two will be the nominee and if the race remains static with all players it will be Romney as the nominee. That’s all.

Thank you, PsychoFreep, for your kind words to Napscoordinator.

As I said over on the Gingrich Georgia win thread, neither Gingrich nor Santorum are the enemy. We need to be glad for any state that doesn't land in the Romney column tonight.
