Newt will rise again.
AND the news keeps on getting better!
Lord, Guide him!
Newt or Santorum, I don’t care which.
But anyway-—YOU GO, NEWT!
The polls are all over the place. Whatever, as long as Mittens is third.
Yes, Newt is surging again and at just the right time.
Good for Newt! I am always surprised when state so similar and even sharing a border turn out differently (reference Tennessee).
Newt is in 2nd place in delegates... wins in Miss, Ala would increase his lead over santorum.
wait for it..... wait...
“Santorum should just drop out”
he he he
I think he will too. When he wins a couple southern states and gets more national exposure, people will see how he could run rings around Obama, he will pick up momentum.
YES! Go Newt!
GO NEWT!!!!!!!Send Santo packing!!!!!!!!!
The DEEP south vs the south, is part of the difference.
In TN you had James Dobson advertising 24/7 for Santorum, and he’s IN Tennessee.
Newt’s past will be more held against him there, than in his brother deep south states.
IF Newt were the nominee against Obama, he would win TN big.
Give them a choice, and they feel better about themselves and their standards if they pick “the other guy” in the primary.
I know the state...have close family there.
As for myself, I’m looking for a PRESIDENT!
Makes me wonder how the tally would be like in Mississippi had it merely been :
Gingrich, Romney, Paul
Santorum, Romney , Paul
One thing is certain ROMNEY ISNT SELLING WELL IN THE SOUTH.
Ineligible Dog Abuser and Backstabber:
"Put this thing on the roof of our car."
LOL @ Saintorum.
Crash here, crash now.
GO NEWT GO.... You ARE rising again!!!
** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
We need Romney’s number to go down further to 20% as he will have all eastern liberal states, winner-take-all delegates, very few southern states, after April 1st.
Romney will go to brokered convention if :
1.He pick up little in the south
2. or Newt win couple after April 1st besides Texas.
I feel good about our chance but our southern patriots, you must work harder!
I dont see how that picture helps Newt. It makes him look like some dark overlord.
Yes, it has been happening to Santo for about 3 weeks now since he was not vetted in Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, and half February.
No one thought to vett him when he once polled at 2% and behind RuuuuPaul.
I was going to comment on the bias in the headline, but I see that it didn’t appear at the source.
Actually, I was going to ask you if you’d mind my using it, keeping your copyright intact of course.
Sure, be my guest...
I can’t believe the no one on Free Republic is pointing out that the latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters now shows ROMNEY now leading in Mississippi by EIGHT points. This makes me a little nervous, folks, because Ill tell you what... Santorum and/or Gingrich absolutely MUST win Alabama, Mississippi, and Kansas next Tuesday if we are to have any remaining hope of keeping the nomination away from Romney. Im very uncomfortable with how competitive Romney seems to be right now in these Deep Southern states. If he wins one or more of them as the result of Rick and Newt splitting the conservative vote, then we might as well resign ourselves to start referring to Mitt as Republican Presidential Candidate Romney.
Santorum and Gingrich supporters need to start putting their differences aside to make sure this DOESNT happen. Hopefully, both campaigns will join forces to launch a barrage of negative ads against Romney throughout the weekend.
Thank you very much.
If Newt wins Alabama AND Mississippi while Romney wins Kansas, Rick is going to accelerate his dive. The nice thing is that almost all Rick’s delegates are unpledged and therefore available for pickin’s.
