I am so sick of reporters acting as if santorum is in a tear when he trails Newt in the delegate count.

I hope Newt dominates the 3/19 Oregon debate

If Newt takes these two it is on the West i.e. California and more

If he wins CA, what then does the Romster do?

I still think Newt has a shot...

Santorum needs to drop out NOW.

He likes to “take one for the team”..... this time it would be for the right team.

Think how the GOP and the MSM have sat on Newt’s chest to take him out and still he’s pushing forward and reaching the voters.

I want to hear Fox News report this.

“Santorum supporters have been urging Gingrich to drop out of the race since Super Tuesday, when Gingrich won his old home state of Georgia but no other contests. Gingrich only has wins in South Carolina and Georgia and trails Romney and Santorum in unofficial Associated Press delegate tallies, but the Gingrich campaign points out that he has a narrow lead on Santorum in pledged delegates – a count that does not include delegates from caucus states like Iowa that could flip later to another candidate.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2856873/posts

Newt is advancing into the first leg of his Southern Strategy - MS and Alabama. This may be the most critical time since the campaign started. He MUST win both of these states to continue on successfully. Please, this weekend, and through Monday, try to make as many calls as you can into both of those states.

I was on the ground in SC, on the phones, and door to door. There were almost 10,000 calls made in SC the last 2 weeks... and the last 2 or 3 days, you could feel the momentum changing on the phones... Earlier, it was maybe 2 Newts out of 10, and by the day before the vote, it was 8 out of 10 for Newt. You could feel the change, and it happened very quickly in the final 72 hours. Newt went out of his way to salute the phone call and grassroots efforts in SC... please... please... there is still time to call for Newt, and get involved for Newt...

From Newt 2012: friday

Field and Phone Leaders, CALLING ALL HANDS ON DECK!!
Our national phone team has successfully called through the original 18,000 volunteer sign-ups. This has resulted in a refined list of volunteer prospects for all 50 states. In 3 weeks our national call team has increased by 300%, or 50 new people per week.

Our increased call capacity will help us now begin to make calls into “Super Tuesday” states or those close by that can assist and or deploy to active states.
... YOU CAN NOW CHOOSE THE STATE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO CALL
http://newtsnetwork.com/ (click Make the CAll in upper right hand corner)

NOTE: The list filters itself by time zones. It will not show you California at 10am Eastern Time because that is 7am Pacific Time and too early to call there. Once a state’s call list opens up the state name will be added to the dropdown list for you to call. (And in the reverse, Eastern Time Zones will be removed from the list as the night wears on.)

This new reality will enable us to be highly flexible in how we operate and target prospects for GOTV and or volunteer recruitment.

Please disseminate this information to your call teams and volunteer lists.

Thank you

I hope Newt has a shot. However, the one California poll I’m aware of gave him only 12%. I was born and have lived in this state for many years. California voters are simply too left leaning to give Newt sufficient support to win. Since Romney is Obama lite he appeals to what passes as a conservative in the state.

"49% of tea party supporters say they'll vote for Gingrich; only 17% say the same about Santorum. Even Romney beats Santorum with tea partiers. "

This is a contention I have made for some time now.

If Gingrich were to drop, it's likely his votes would go to Romney and Paul, not Santorum.

Santorum is at his ceiling of voter support in the GOP.

Unfortunately, this map says otherwise:

Santorum is still a long field goal with a 4th down, 18 seconds left and the team down by 3 points.

But the blue guy isn't going to drop out and make room for the red guy to do a one on one with the green guy. Nor should he.

“Santorum needs to drop out NOW. He likes to “take one for the team”..... this time it would be for the right team.”

Agreed! Between the two “conservatives” (I use the term loosly) Newt is the stronger of the two. There’s a lot to like about Rick, but Newt brings a “give ‘em hell” attitude that Rick just doesn’t have. Rick is a nice guy who if this was the 90s would be a good Repub candidate, but times have changed and the GOP needs a scrapper...that is Newt.

Not much not in the way of polling being done lately in Texas that I've seen. The primary was delayed and now appears to be on schedule for May 29. At that point in time 77% of the delegates will have been voted on. So it remains to be seen if Texas will be a player or not. If it remains close then Texas with its 155 delegates most likely will be the deciding factor.

The last poll I find shows the following:


Feb. 8-15, 371 GOP likely voters.

Older polls from back in 2011

“In 1994, there was only one person who consistently believed Republicans could weather the storms and capture control of the Congress for the first time in four decades; in 2012, he is a candidate for President.” ~Ken Kies

“I’m not sure [Gingrich] ever had a lot of friends here, and I’m not sure he cared, because he came here to accomplish a purpose, not to make buddies,” said Ken Kies, an influential tax lobbyist and a Gingrich donor. “Newt led a revolution, so that tends to leave bodies on the floor.”

They’re both too far behind and with too many “Romney lock” states in the future (4 more of the top 10 Mormon states plus states like New Jersey) to win the nomination outright, probably even in a Romney head-to-head. The only hope is for them to accumulate enough delegates to beat Romney and Paul’s, team up and win it at the convention. So there’s less reason than ever to have infighting between Newt and Rick.

No, not at all; in fact, the calls I made from out of state during other primaries, the callers were really impressed to talk to someone from out of state... it was kinda cute really, and you’d be surprised, you get into some interesting, and oftentimes funny, conversations. A good ice-breaker, how’s the weather in your part of the country? What’s the price of gas down your way?

Please try it, and get others, also. This is a really important weekend for Newt...

" There's no question that at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.
And what I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasn't trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them.

I found that I felt compelled to seek God's forgiveness. Not God's understanding, but God's forgiveness. I do believe in a forgiving God. And I think most people, deep down in their hearts hope there's a forgiving God.
Somebody once said that when we're young, we seek justice, but as we get older, we seek mercy."

In 2012, each of the state's 53 congressional districts is allocated three delegates bound by their district's primary results, with an additional 10 delegates awarded to the top vote-getter, and three uncommitted until the convention.

Additionally, you must be a registered republican to vote for a republican candidate in the California presidential primary.
