I will do a sidebar comment to you, friend, that I hope Rick Santorum cleans their clocks tonight in both states and does well in Hawaii (maybe the results in Ala/Miss might influence the caucuses in Hawaii but not sure, as they are probably ongoing at this moment...and it seems like Romney/Mormon missionary territory out there in the islands; lets home the conservative Catholics, retired military, and evangelicals on the island turn out). Having said that, to lurkers in the loyal opposition--though I have nothing to say to Romney supporters, except perhaps "get lost!"-- I wish all the Newt supporters a good night tonight, in the sense of healthy competition, and but course root for my team as well. Especially a shout out to some I have had some semblance of cyber/political fist fights with over the last several days. The last thing I want to be accused of is being a lousy winner OR loser, a lousy sportsman. Believe me, I have had my share of "losses" this season with Romney stealing elections, MSM/Laura Ingraham knocking out Herman Cain whom I still believe was the best, etc. etc.

We’ve learned to HOLD those county tallies back until the cities report.

Something curiously goes funny when the outlying counties come in for the conservatives. Go figure.

If Santorum was an honest man, which he isn’t, he would withdraw and put his delegates behind the only Republican who can defeat Obama.

It looks like Rick will have a good night. Finally they are saying that Romney won’t have enough to win in Mississippi. He can’t overtake Santorum. If that is true, that is a relief.

Obviously, more voters in more states, other than a couple southern states, like Santorum better.

If Newt can’t win in the primaries, he can’t win in the general election.

Facts are facts.

Umm...an obvious social dynamic? Big difference in income and education level between outlying and dense suburban areas, which is clearly reflected in vote outcomes.

You’re pretty quick to quite a man’s character negatively. Remember, neither Newt or Santorum have a credible path to 1,144 delegates. So Newt leaving the race now does not necessarily help Santorum more - and it might be less helpful - than Newt staying in and recommending to his delegates that they vote for Santorum on a 2nd ballot.

But in any case, I’d say the ease with which you judge a better man may be a sad commentary on your character.

In Mississippi, Thanks to Haley Barbour and his son who works for Team Romney, all of the elected office holders endorsed and helped Romney.

Former crook Chester Trent Lott also had his filthy hands in this.

Oh come on. That is ridiculous. Here we are with another two states that Santorum is holding his own if not going to win both states. What he is honest about is finding that people are voting for him all over the United States in droves.

“honest about is finding that people are voting for him”.

I think Newt has a better chance of beating Obammy. But Santorum does a much better job of GOTV.

I don’t really see where the drama is.

The one thing clear from the exit polls is that Gingrich wins neither state.

And regardless of who actually wins AL or MS, they are proportional states and the vote margin will be small. Even if Santorum wins both, Romney still picks up delegates (as he always does, because unlike the other candidates he never gets totally crushed).

And whatever Santorum gains is probably more than compensated for by Hawaii and American Samoa.

Come ON. Get off this kick with Newt. The man has been pro-choice and conservative probably longer than you’ve been alive. But at any rate, Newt will NEVER go against what the People want . ..that is what I like about Newt. If The People want strawberries and moonbeams, that’s what they’ll have ....because he’s going to FIX the judiciary, which keeps foistering its will on the People (often pushing liberal policies we don’t want).

Santorum ...well, might just get a little pushier trying to tell the People who to live their lives ... which is why they will reject him.

It’s a fine line. With Newt, the only way things change is if the argument is won, if hearts are changed.

As it should be.

In order for this to hurt Romney, he would have to drop below 5%, So hold your celebration for the moment.

Romney also has a few sleeper states running that will offset any losses here, like they did last weekend.

It looks like Romney will break even, and also the heavy Romney precincts have not reported yet. The rural, less populated areas are always the first in. The high populated areas that favor Romney and Gingrich, will not be finished counting until later.

Does this sound right - my doctor is very over weight and has diabetes and I am fairly thin and he says I should not eat fat or sugar. Does this compute? Last time I was there, I took him some sugar free candy.

If Santorum wins... the youth vote should be the story. He won the exit polls by 15 points in the 17-29 demographic and 14 in 30-44 demographic, and chances are they were underpolled.

What makes you think the Newt supporters would rally behind Santorum?

Because he, too, "is not Romney"...that's why I think they would. I could be wrong, but I do believe they want what's best for the country as much as Santorum supporters do. Just sayin'.....

"The fact that Romney is even in this race (within 3 points of Santo and Newt) is bad news for our side."

Actually the real bad news is that if the conservatives go 1-2 in both states, neither has any reason to get out before May.

That gives Mittens the continuing conservative split fulcrum to back into a near-sweep of the Apr. 24 CT-DE-NY-PA-RI Super Tuesday II (231 delegates, but I'm assuming Santorum can hold onto PA. Maybe.).

If Zipperhead takes 4 of 5 that day, Dallas don't matter.

Odd as it is, and as internecine and as hot as it is here on FR and within GOP Conservatism, we agree on this maxim:

MITT ROMNEY MUST BE DEFEATED IN BOTH MAJOR SOUTHERN STATES TONIGHT AND IF POSSIBLE, PLACE THIRD, THE MIRACLES WOULD BE HE PLACES FOURTH BEHIND PAUL!!

This of course would make Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michael Medved, Michael Savage, Karl Rove, Bob Dole, George Bush, Matt Drudge, Ann Coulter, Jeb Bush, Lindsay Graham, John McCain, Meghan McCain and a host of others terribly sad tonight. :-( One can hope. One can pray.

Lord, I know that.

The point has been made in the recent elections up north that there are examples that when the counties are late, or there is some snafu that delays their reporting, conservtives have won, contrary to the city vote.

In other words, in the city when the clock has run out, there is no time left for the city to find some dang late box to show up and counter the results of the rural vote. Just sayin’.

After all, RINOS can get just as desperate as Democrats.
