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.

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.

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.

What is your point?

What YOU posted was,
If what you say were true, then Ron Paul would have easily won VA, since all of the Santorum and Newt voters were free to stop Romney. But Romney won over 70% of the vote.

In fact, there are surveys out there that indicate that if either Newt or Santorum drop out, most of those votes would go to Romney.


The fact is, with help of fraud, Romney was supposed to easily win Virginia, and you tried to imply over and over again, that he did easily win Virginia. But he didn't.

The fact is, if one of those two dropped out, the majority of the votes would be going to the other, not Romney.

Ron Paul screwed up. If had been smart like Gingrich, he could have won Virginia and hurt Romney big.

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!

don't believe everything you read in the news.

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]

Reference: Resolution Of The State Executive Committee Of The Mississippi Republican Party (June 21, 2007)


In addition to these two primaries next week, are another five Caucuses.

splitting hairs? LMAO!
not even close - OVER 70% and under 60% is a huge difference!
my point was that your point was BS.

Sorry, but that is not correct. Newt did well with Georgia. But the delegate count is 404 Romney, 161 Santorum, 105 Newt, 61 Paul.

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.

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.

But in all reality, Santorum failed to organize soon enough and can't possibly win enough delegates to even come close to the nomination

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.

Actually he had the biggest percentage gain in delegates of all four candidates yesterday.

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.

pgkdan is correct. Gingrich finished 3rd or 4th everywhere outside of Georgia on Super Tuesday.
