SoConPubbie, please keep posting the articles exposing Romney's plans to “move to the center.” Until Romney actually wins the Republican nomination there is still some hope, however faint, that people will wake up and realize what we're facing.
To cripplecreek and MachIV, I can't agree on the national or regional primary system. Our current system, despite all its problems, allows underfunded conservative candidates to have a chance in states where door-to-door campaigning still works. Romney's money likely would have guaranteed his nomination with no serious competition in a national or regional contest.
I'm thinking the delegate math may be dubious at the very least. After all we are dealing with pro Romney people giving us the "facts".
WASHINGTON, April 6 (UPI) -- Rick Santorum's delegate count is much closer to front-runner Mitt Romney's than reported, a memo prepared for a conservative campaign huddle in Virginia says.
While most estimates show GOP presidential hopeful Romney with 657 or 658 delegates and Santorum with 273 to 281, "the real count" gives Romney 571 delegates and Santorum 342, the memo by delegate strategist John Yob of the Grand Rapids, Mich., political consulting firm Strategic National said.
Instead of Romney and Santorum being separated by nearly 400 delegates, as widely reported -- which suggests Romney has essentially sewn up the race -- the White House hopefuls are separated by only 229 delegates, said the memo published by CNN and reviewed by United Press International.
Memo: Romney delegates counted too high
I don't know enough about conservativeHQ to say how accurate they are but I provide it for others to make their own decision. Their delegate count is 482 delegates for Romney, compared to Rick Santorums 331.
