Romney Wins GOP Primary Marked by Low Turnout (The RINO Effect)
Middletown Patch ^ | 4/24/12 | Cassandra Day

Posted on 04/24/2012 7:34:28 PM PDT by jimbo123

Middletown poll workers outnumbered voters in Tuesday's Republican Primary in which the presumptive GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney sailed to victory.

Normally, there’s a rush between 6 and 8 a.m., Dypa said, as a poll worker yelled to the eight others in the gymnasium, not one a voter, “seven hours!” This year, three Republicans showed up at Spencer during the first two hours.

I think I’ll vote Constitution Party this time. It is the clear difference from left and lefter.

Romney possibly may take down the GOp-e. He is the worse of the group. He will not beat Obama due to low turnout. To see him on TV, he's leaves no inspiration. At least, they could have given us a truthful (classy) person and one who has a connection to the people. The people voting for him will get a true awakening in the months to come. The media did not want to run against him thinking he could not be beat. Look at 2008 nos. to today's/ this is suicide. Fun to see the Gop-e ruined (to be changed) but not fun to see the nation suffer with a weak person A or B. These people in power have taken an American experience to places it should have never seen (and the republicans are to blame as well) I don't trust them to improve with all of the corruption in our government. Like I said months ago, I guess I will hide out and wait for the cavalry and orders where to be. One day, people will get frustrated and become angry vs tired and confused. We keep trying moderates, they don't motivate (inspire) patriotic Americans. The media cannot make Romney into a likable person now for 6 years.

Now that everyone is aware what the "Romney effect' is it seems to me quite logical for Romney to drop out of the race and quit screwing everybody up.

That's the only solution.

Yep. Romney needs to man up and drop out for the good of the nation before he gets pummeled by Obama.

Sarah Palin could draw out 10,000 people in a small town, Mittens couldn’t pay them to come out.

Hell, crazy old Ron Paul draws more supporters to his events than mittens does. Romney does not inspire confidence because he's a waffling, flip flopping liberal.

You folks are delusional to think that the Republicans turnout would be low in November. Fortunately for the country the Any But Obama voters are 95% of the Republicans and Conservatives and would greatly and they go in massive numbers to vote Obama out.

The reason turnout is low in the latest primaries and will continue to be so is that Romney has been practically the nominee since Santorum dropped out and people are not going to waste their time in a race that is over in favor of Romney.

Yawn. You were singing the same lame tune with McStooge, JV. Romney is even weaker and more liberal than he is. But you keep on with that delusion of yours that the bunch of GOP losers will prevail.

"You’ve been sadly bamboozled if you think you’re making any sort of “choice”."

Well it’s my only choice...

It's not your only choice. It's merely the easiest choice.

“drop out for the good of the nation before he gets pummeled by Obama. “

Guess he figures that he can buy the election.

Could we get a worse candidate? He might as well have a giant L tattooed on his forehead.
