Columbus, Ohio (CNN) -- Mitt Romney won six Super Tuesday states including the big prize of Ohio, while Rick Santorum took three states and Newt Gingrich grabbed a vital triumph in Georgia, CNN projected.
Romney was projected early Wednesday to win Alaska's caucuses, the last to tally votes among the 10 states with delegates up for grabs.

Yeah, right. And barak obama would have 4 more years to destroy this country.
ID's about 29% mormon and it seems they all toe the line...like 100%!
Not true. Gingrich is almost no one’s second choice. Do some research.
It must suck to be as stupid as you are.
What is your point? Paul lost.......Is this some kind of contest?
Palin needs to quit walking the fence and put her support behind a candidate. It would certainly help the one she picks....and I don’t think it would be Myth!
Coy is not cute when it’s not helpful.
Was watching Fox last night (which I hardly do anymore). Romney and his wife were giving a big sappy victory speech in MA while to the right the graphics were indicating Santorum ahead in OK, OH, N Dak, etc. Gingrich winning Georgia.
I was thinking to myself. Now, I know why I hardly ever watch Fox.
Palin and Cain both, voted for Newt yesterday.
Keep praying. Our country can’t survive 4 more years of the marxist.
Oh! Hi! :)
Newt is looking at a BIG gain next week! So maybe little Ricky should drop out?
Not. Alabama and Mississippi will give out delegates like this in TOTAL
1st place gets 32 delegates
2nd place gets 28 delegates
3rd place gets 23 delegates
That is hardly enough for Newt to say anything. Even 3rd place gets quite a few delegates. That was all over the news yesterday showing that the next two states are not going to change anything regardless of who wins.
NOT a RINO, is the answer.
She did, but she is going to have to rally for her candidate not just send a note that she voted!
Newt and Rick are tied at 108 delegates right now. That’s interesting!
Tuesday 13 March 2012: 47 of 50 of Alabama's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in today's Alabama Presidential Primary.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Alabama's Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.
Tuesday 13 March 2012: 37 of 40 of Mississippi's delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in today's Mississippi Presidential Primary.
Proportional allocation and rounding details: Round fractional proportions of a delegate to the nearest whole number. If rounding results in too few delegates being allocated, the candidate recieving the greatest number of votes receives an additional delegate. If rounding results in too many delegates being allocated, the candidate recieving the least number of votes looses a delegate.
National Convention delegates are bound until released by their candidate. [Rules 8 and 9]
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Mississippi's Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position. [Rule 5]

Stop splitting hairs, and get on with the real task at hand.
splitting hairs? LMAO!
not even close - OVER 70% and under 60% is a huge difference!
my point was that your point was BS.
We will see if Newt gained any traction in the coming states. But it is not looking very good at the moment.
Romney is steadily pulling away from the both of them and has more delegates than the two combined. Organization is proving to be everything, again.
Go bite somebody else’s ankles little dog!
Gee...that certainly put me in my place! LOL@U!
Thank you for the correction. I must have picked up some older numbers.
I sure don’t want Myth to win, but it’s getting a bit depressing right now for me.
I'll agree that Santorum got off to a slow start. He had next to no money and friends and family as staff. His staff was really that bad. But that was then. He's running much stronger now and while I'll agree that the delegate math going forward is tough...it's not insurmountable.
Newt and Rick need to reach an accomodation. I don't think a brokered convention will help anyone but the Rovians and the rest of the gop establishment. We need to stop Romney and then obama.
Thanks. That is interesting. One problem is that very few states have given a candidate 50 percent of the vote which could be why the delegates will be split a bit closer for the 3 placed candidates. I guess we will find out next Tuesday. Thank you for the information. I read it and hope they change the way they allocate delegates next round. I would like it to be win the state, win all the delegates. This reminds me of how “dumbed down” children’s sports have gotten where they have to give every competitor a prize instead of how it used to be where only the winner gets a prize. I believe that if you win the state, you get all the delegates. That is the way conservatives should feel.
same here, I hardly ever watch FOX , the air head Megyn Kelly had her pal Sally Kohn or Khon on who is a Soros media matters homosexual cross dressing activist who has denounced America and Capitalism.
She was then hired by FOX, what on earth were FOX thinking just like that awful show called the five.
I tried to watch that show when it first came on but after a couple of weeks I couldn’t take it anymore.
All the other shows have gone to crap as well and Hannity has to be the biggest fraud on that network.
Infact I just flick through the news channels now.
I’ve noticed many on here have given up on FOX and I wonder if their ratings have gone down in the last year.
Certain states are also getting many more delegates than you would think. If they were more valuable to the Republican candidate in the last election, then they get additional delegates.
There was a big mistake made in Virginia. Both Gingrich and Santorum should have spent money to help get votes to Ron Paul. In the last primary, there were 489,000 votes, but only 265,000 votes yesterday - a difference of 224,000. If Ron Paul could of gotten only 1/4 of those non-votes, he would have carried Virginia and Romney would have 10% fewer delegates.
It's sad that with the opportunities that we have the republican elitists are able to push a socialist rino on us.
Hi : )

Thank YOU very MUCH!
Looks like Newt is on par or ahead of Rick.
We’re gonna have to push back...and HARD! :)
not true. polls don’t necessarily show all of santoru’s supporters going to newt...
Yup, because Newt did succeed on Super Tuesday in getting more delegates [total] than Mittens and Santorum where he campaigned the most, which was Georgia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
Right now, Newt's message is not resonating outside the states where he has not put much of a campaign effort like Santo and Myth, but hopefully that will change.
you’re correct. But I never said anything like what you have tried to imply. Did I?
I think it was in “The Hobbit” where Bilbo got the trolls to turn into stone by egging them on to argue about how to cook him once he was dead. Because they were arguing amongst each other they didn’t notice that the sun was coming up.
The sun is coming up, and unless both Newt and Rick really comprehend what that means, we will lose our only chance at being able to vote for somebody who DOESN’T believe the government can force churches to violate their own beliefs. And we may well end up with another 4 years of the Muslim-ururper-in-chief who is diligently working with communists and Islamists the world over to destroy this nation from within.
We can’t afford to let pride and politics distract us from the real battle for this nation’s survival.
It's Santorum or Romney. A vote for Newt is a vote for Romney at this point.
True conservatives that realize the biggest threat to freedom is the big government Rick Santorum helped build.
Who else other than Santorum do you think Romney's sleaze machine targeted in Michigan and Ohio? And, Santorum still nearly won both states. Santorum only lost Ohio because of votes going to Gingrich.
When the Romney sleaze machine was turned loose on Newt in Florida, he got buried.
Wrong. Santorum has 161 - any unbound delegates the establishment deems necessary to put Romney over the top
In the popular vote, to date Romney leads with over 3.2 million votes which is right at 40%. Santorum is second with 2 million votes or 26% , Gingrich is third with 1.8 million votes or 22% and Ron Paul is fourth with 900 thousand votes or 11%.
The effectiveness of Romney's campaign however, can be measured in his delegate count. Although he has only one 40% of the popular vote, this has translated to date into 431 delgates or 54% of the total delegates awarded to date. Santorum follows with 176 delegates or 21%, Gingrich with 126 or 15% and Paul with 79 delegates or 10%. At this rate, Romney has a good chance of winning the delegates needed to clinch the nomination before the convention, but it will go on until late in the season.
So, after Santorum's three win in February, Romney bounced back with five straight wins. On March 6th, Super Tuesday, Romney added six more wins, Santorum three more, and Gingrich one more. Romney is estatic about coming from behind and winning Ohio, though it was a near thing. Because of the closeness of the Ohio votes, and his other three wins, Santorum vows to stay in. Gingrich because of his strong win in his home state of Georgia also vows to stay in, and there was never any question, even with no wins, that Ron Paul will stay in on principle.
In my opinion, the tough primary season, despite pundents prognostications, continues to strengthen the candidates, keeping the GOP message at the top of the news cycle, and preparing the nominee to fight Obama. Any of the four would be orders of magnitude better than Barack Obama and his dismal failures. Here's the GOPTracking results now after Super Tuesday.
|2012 GOP Primaries||Date||Mitt Romney||Newt Gingrich||Rick Santorum||Ron Paul||Ron Huntsman||Rick Perry||Michele Bachman||Herman Cain||Totals|
|At large Del's||23||4||1||0||0||0||0||28|
|To Date % of||Delegates||Romney||53%||Gingrich||15%||Santorum||21%||Paul||10%||Huntsman||<1%||Perry||0%||Bachman||0%||Cain||0%|
Romney will most probably at this point begin to pivot and focus more and more on going head to head with Obama and concentrating on finding a VP pick that will solidify as much of the party and base as he can for the general election.
Only by uniting, can Santorum and Gingrich now prevent Romney from having a real strong chance of winning the nomination outright. At this point I think the best they can hope for is a brokered convention...otherwise, mathematically, I believe Romney will ultimately eak out a win...probably at the 50-55% range of delegates needed. It seems at this point, for whatever reason, that Gingrich and Santorum are unwilling to unite, so they will continue to split the more conservative vote and allow Romney to win more contests and win a larger proportion of delegates in so doing. In the end, I will support any of the GOP candidates, whichever wins the nomination against the abject marxist ideolog, Obama, as any one of them will be far better than Barack Obama. Four more years of his horrific leadership and fundamental change could easily put this nation in a economic, debt, foreign policy, and energy hole we will have a very difficult and very painful time of digging our way out of...and at the cost of decades of heavy burden placed on our children and grandchildren.

America is at the crossroads of history and we must choose aright
March 7, 2012
Randall Terry on the Democratic side and infinite percentage gain in delegates!
Since you don’t live in GA you can’t possibly know that the TV airwaves have been CLOGGED for two months with anti-Newt ads from Mitt’s superpac
Don’t you ever get dizzy from all that spinning?
