  • Projected Delegate Allocation for AL/MS/HI (Pretty Much Guaranteed)

    The Green Papers ^ | 03-12-2012 | parksstp
    Regardless of how the final votes come out tomorrow, based on delegate allocation rules, little is going to change between now and tomorrow: Let's start with MS. This is the easiest state to allocate based on the rules. Essentially, if no one gets over 50% and you clear the 15% hurdle, you're going to get delegates. Let's assume for a moment the current polls are correct, with Gingrich 35%, Romney 30%, and Santorum 25% Based on this, virutally all are certain to get a 1-1-1 delegate split in all 4 Congressional Deistricts. Of the remaining 25 delegates, Gingrich would get...
  • Obama’s Muslim, evolution is fake & Rush Limbaugh is great, Republican voters say in poll

    New York Daily News ^ | March 12, 2012 | Corky Siemaszko
    Voters in Alabama and Mississippi may still be split on which Republican they want in the White House, but they agree on this much — in their minds, President Obama is a Muslim. A stunning 66% of Mississippi respondents to a survey done ahead of Tuesday’s presidential primary have bought into the false notion that Obama worships Allah, Public Policy Polling reported Monday. Some 36% said they weren’t sure. In Alabama, 45% responded in the affirmative when asked the same question and 41% said they weren’t sure, pollsters found. Obama is a Christian. But many conservative Republicans just refuse to...

    With Tuesday’s Alabama and Mississippi primaries on the horizon, Bill Maher sent filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi to the heart of Mississippi to interview some prospective voters, and what she found was some scary footage– of voters who feared President Obama was a “Muslim” and promising “the South will rise again.” The panel, including Jon Hamm and Michael Steele, analyzed the situation and, after making a few jokes about the subject’s teeth, argued that education was the only solution to their poverty. With two caveats– that “all these people knew they were going to be on this show and they all think...

    [SNIP] ALABAMA, Rasmussen poll: 1. Newt Gingrich 30% 2. Rick Santorum 29% 3. Mitt Romney 28% 4. Ron Paul 7% These numbers are much more salubrious for Gingrich than Alabama State University's recent poll. In that survey, Santorum was 23%, Romney was 19%, and Gingrich was 14%. One explanation? Even though the ASU poll was released Wednesday, it was conducted before Super Tuesday, which shook things up a bit. But... that makes things even more curious, since you'd expect Newt to have fallen after his bad Super Tuesday performance and not risen as Rasmussen suggests.

So very, very clear and so that's why I am supporting this law." - Governor Phil Bryant (R-MS)Mississippi joins the growing number of states fed up with the Federal failure to enforce immigration laws - and is doing something about it. Last week, State Rep. Becky Currie (R) introduced House Bill 488 (PDF) - the Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act of 2012 - a sweeping piece of legislation which would incorporate the best of previous state bills to come before it. The bill would allow law enforcement...

    The American Conservative ^ | February 14, 2012 | Rod Dreher
    Heather Mac Donald says California is in for a huge, demographics-driven economic shift: California is in the middle of a far-reaching demographic shift: Hispanics, who already constitute a majority of the state’s schoolchildren, will be a majority of its workforce and of its population in a few decades. This is an even more momentous development than it seems. Unless Hispanics’ upward mobility improves, the state risks becoming more polarized economically and more reliant on a large government safety net. And as California goes, so goes the nation, whose own Hispanic population shift is just a generation or two behind. The...

    GINGRICH: No. It just means that we're going to have to pick up all those delegates in late May, just before the California primary, when we hope to pick up more delegates out here. That still means that on super-Tuesday, we're looking at Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, we're looking at Ohio. It means the week after super- Tuesday, we're looking at Alabama and Mississippi. Now, we have hopes that we're going to keep picking up delegates everywhere and continue. This race is going on for a long time, I think. And what Texas moving back means, combined with California being in...

    Friday, former Govenor Haley Barbour went on CNN and defended his pardon and sentence modification of more than 200 state convicts. He was asked specifically about the pleas of a Rankin County family to be heard before the pardon of the murderer of their loved one. Barbour says his lawyers met with the family two years before the release. But family members say they didn't know the killer was working at the mansion until a year ago. "So there would have been no way we could have met with him two years ago. We have had no contact with any...
  • Haley Barbour pardons: Why were the forgiven so disproportionately white?

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | January 21, 2012 | Patrik Jonsson
    The sheer number of pardons handed out by outgoing Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour – over 200 – left many Mississippians in shock. What may not have been so surprising is that white prisoners were four times more likely than black ones to get the gubernatorial benefit of the doubt. Out of a total of 222 acts of clemency given by Barbour during his tenure – 156 of which Attorney General Jim Hood has subsequently argued may be constitutionally invalid because of public notice violations – two-thirds benefited white prisoners. Meanwhile, two-thirds of the state's prison population is black. On its...
