  • Romney wins Ohio but fails to shake off rivals

    Mitt Romney secured a close victory in Ohio but failed to land a knockout blow against rival Rick Santorum on "Super Tuesday," raising the odds of a drawn-out battle for the Republican presidential nomination between the party's establishment and its grassroots conservatives. Romney won five of the 10 state contests on Tuesday but his margin of victory was uncomfortably slim in Ohio, the night's biggest prize. Ohio is a politically divided state sure to be hotly contested in the November 6 election between the eventual Republican nominee and President Barack Obama. Romney moved closer to the 1,144 delegates needed to...

    Fox ignored (sat on) substantial news this week including the fact that Romney lied about his support of a national mandate and then yesterday's news of Jim Demint calling "Romneycare" an "unjust law". Both of these would have had the gravity to end the race for any other candidate, especially having been revealed the night before Super Tuesday. When will America have had ENOUGH of the ongoing deception?

    In the 1960 U.S. presidential election, an unaffiliated poster that featured a shifty-looking Richard Nixon snidely asked, “Would you buy a used car from this man?” U.S. voters suggested by their election of John F. Kennedy that they wouldn’t. Since then, the casual use of the question in discussions of political candidates has become standard, a rather fun and punchy way to measure whether voters trust pols.For what it’s worth, Republicans in the 10 Super Tuesday states said they would rather buy a used car from Rick Santorum than from Mitt Romney. According to an IBOPE/Zogby poll commissioned by craigslist,...

    Mitt Romney won easy victories in Massachusetts, Virginia and Vermont Tuesday as he looked to take a commanding lead in the Republican presidential race. Newt Gingrich, hoping to revitalize his campaign, notched a home-field win in Georgia. Together, 10 states scattered across the country hosted Super Tuesday contests, the biggest day yet in the fight for the right to challenge President Barack Obama this fall. Ohio, a critical state in the general election, was the spotlight race, with Mr. Romney running close to former Sen. Rick Santorum, who has seen his Ohio lead erode. The former Pennsylvania senator was hoping...

Asked at a news conference if he’d like to respond to Romney’s comments calling Obama the “most feckless president since Carter,” Obama said: “Good luck tonight.” After the quip got laughs from the press gallery, Obama smiled and said, “No, really. Really.” Ten states will head to the polls for the March 6 Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, and Romney is expected to win a plurality of...

    Pundits have talked for weeks about the possibilities for a brokered convention after having seen one of the more volatile nominating contests in memory. Neither party has had a brokered convention for 50 years, however, and it’s not because we haven’t had competitive primaries in that time. Usually, voters tend to hit a tipping point and start getting behind a leading candidate, which effectively ends the competitive phase of a nomination fight and puts the party on a glide path to a unifying convention in the late summer. That point gets reached when one candidate simply starts winning often enough...

    Mitt Romney could all but guarantee he’ll be the GOP presidential nominee by winning Ohio on Super Tuesday. A win there will hand Romney a chunk of delegates as well as a shot of momentum, making it hard for his opponents to catch him and bolstering the former Massachusetts governor’s argument that he’s the best choice to beat President Obama in the fall. “Ohio is a state that [Rick] Santorum cannot afford to lose,” said GOP strategist Alex Castellanos, who worked for Romney in 2008 but is neutral in this race. “If Santorum loses Ohio, it’ll be practically impossible to...

While Mitt Romney, the leading contender for the Republican nomination for president, looks to lock up his nomination during the Super Tuesday Republican primary races, some members of the black community have concerns about Mormon literature that says "dark skinned people" are from "the seed of Cain." Yet Romney, who has said he is proud of his Mormon faith, said the doctrine in question has not been followed for years and was glad to see the change.

He describes himself as "a candidate who, throughout [his] career, has not only checked the box on conservative issues but has fought for conservative issues." And he slams front-runner Mitt Romney for flip-flopping on abortion and the Wall Street bailouts and, most of all, for passing government-mandated health care reform in Massachusetts. If elected president, Santorum vows, he will end the "tyranny" of President Obama's Affordable Care Act. Yet as an up-and-coming congressman in the early 1990s, Santorum took...

    Although the Super Tuesday states are a mix of favorable and unfavorable terrain for Mitt Romney, his situation has improved enough that he could be on track to win an outright majority of the delegates on the night. Indeed, Mr. Romney could secure the delegate majority even if he wins as few as 4 or 5 states, based on an analysis of the current polling in each state and the complex series of rules that are used to govern delegate allocation. This path involves Mr. Romney winning all or nearly all of the delegates in his strongest states, while getting...

These recent statements, while fairly shocking, certainly square with his actions as Governor of Massachusetts, which we have documented. They differ sharply from the hardcore "social conservative" façade he presented when he ran for president in 2008. He did his best to disguise his radical viewpoint and record on "sexual orientation" then. But Romney was candid about his pro-gay positions during the national televised candidates' debate in Iowa on...

What he says of this record today is that the Massachusetts Governor's Council had to confirm the nominees, and the members of the council were all Democrats. So his answer was to nominate persons palatable to Democrats. But this all-Democratic Governor's Council is...

    This is NOT intended to be only a Rick Santorum thread. GOP conservatives need to work together to prevail over Mitt Romney, who is the lame GOP-e candidate. Conservatives need to cinch / clinch the GOP nomination ASAP! For the final decision of who should be the actual 2012 GOP nominee, this should be an end-of-August national convention decision, and NOT a Spring primary decision. Conservatives and the GOP as a whole need the extra time to make the best final decision about the nominee. Several weeks before the Iowa caucus, there was all of this discussion of having one...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ellen Holden said she's supporting her second choice in Ohio's key Super Tuesday Republican primary to help block Mitt Romney's chances of winning the party's nomination. She voted early for former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum as the race has turned into a two-man battle between Romney and Santorum that could be decided in Ohio, where the two candidates are tied in the polls. Holden, who returned to nursing after the bad economy forced her family to sell an excavation business they'd run for 15 years, said she'd rather have cast her ballot for former U.S. House speaker...

    Mike Huckabee started his political forum on Jobs with a small businessman from St. Louis asking Newt Gingrich how he would help small businesses. Newt gave a straightforward answer. The burly man then repeated the question. He seemed a little belligerent, but I figured maybe that was just his temperment. Then Mitt Romney came on. The opening question came from the same small business owner. This time, he told about how his son suffered a traumatic injury while serving in Iraq. (Huckabee at this point showed a photo of the man with his arm abound his son in uniform.) The...
