No #s yet, just some tidbits:
I'd expect Michigan results between 10 and 11 tonight, and Arizona results between midnight and 1 AM (all eastern)
Early observations on today's polls: Michigan still pretty close, but Romney headed for a huge win in Arizona.
It looks like Romney has banked about a 30 point lead among early voters in Arizona and they're more than half the electorate.
From the findings I didn't expect file: Babeu still seen more favorably than not by Arizona Republicans.
Santorum's favorability numbers not what they were a week ago- the shine is finally wearing off with GOP voters.
Arizona voters on which they're more concerned with: about 80% economy, 15% social issues. Could help explain Santorum's drop.
In Michigan the do you care more about the economy or social issues question coming in about 70/20 for the economy.
Studboi is viewed favorably? Interesting.
One tweet also says “Michigan still pretty close.” If Romney is humiliated in his home state, a blow-out in Arizona will be a footnote.
Mythens won’t win AZ because of my or my wife’s vote!
Arizona also has a sizable Morman population.
It is truly amazing how tribal some demographic groups are: blacks vote for BHO2 becasue he is one of them, and Mormons vote for Romney because he is one of them.
Now, I’m grossly oversimplifying this trend, but it is sizable enough to win elections.
I can answer that. I first came to AZ in 1995. Since that time it has seen monstrous immigration from California as the libs take it further down the spiral.
People say that this is an excuse. It is not. It’s the truth. Look at the growth of places like Bullhead City, Kingman, Lake Havasu City and the Burbs of the Phoenix/Tucson/Flagstaff areas. Most of those new residents came from either Mexico or California.
The ‘old timers’ (and bear in mind, most of AZ’s population was imported at some point otherwise the Tribes and a few others would be the only residents) that used to be the bedrock conservative base of the state are overwhelmed by straight liberals and Cali RINOs that hate the ‘regulation’ of Cali, but still want the ‘services and bennies’ they got there.
Arizonans are certainly a strange breed of conservative. You get folks like Arpaio, etc. at the local or state level, then you get freaks like Napolitano and McCain at the national. Yet, they’re reliably Republican for the Presidential vote. Mormon tribalism and retirees who just think he looks presidential? I’m at a loss.
Clarification... “Straight liberals” meaning Hardcore libs. There are plenty of the ‘bent’ variety here too.
AZ has a large Mormon population...
By Tuesday Michigan will fall by 12+pts.
This is one sad primary season.
Santorum supporters must continue their crusade and all candidates' must continue to fight.
But none of these guys are going into the convention with 1,144 delegates.
It is a totally different place than it was in the 90s. The two (then/now) can’t really be compared. My mother came out ther in the 80s and at that point it was still ‘the wild west’ in a lot of ways. Today it’s just as regulated and screwed up as the other ‘56’ states.
And again history repeats. Liberals and their destructive effect are the root of the problems in AZ.
When you drop MILLIONS in a campaign, the "WALKIN' AROUND MONEY" and the handing out of ballots to Illegals and Party Operatives tends to keep the Establishment Candidate way out front, such as in other States with Early Voting.
IMHO, there should be ONE Primary Election date, nationwide, and you either show up at the polls on that day, or you don't vote, period.
There's no Photo ID on Early Voters, and Voter ID should be required, nationwide. If you can't show your face in public, or don't have a permanent address that's verifiable; you don't VOTE!
Warren Jeffs has a lot of kids in Arizona, along with hundreds of thousands of other Mormons - and they vote....every single one.
Axelrod is convinced that the Russell Pearce recall means Obama can take Arizona this year. He is delusional, but they are putting a lot of cash into it.
that's what happens when you stupidly take the bait from the Obama campaign, via their media minions, to focus on contraception.
