GOP being Punkd?
We know that Democrats are crossing over in open primaries, such as Mississippi and Alabama, in order to vote for Rick Santorum, a big union candidate, their votes intended to throw the Republican National Convention into a contested balloting process.
This tactic was written up at the Daily Kos. Big union money has even invested for the Santorum campaign.
Pardon me for not having all the pertinent facts and I confess I dont even have time to search for them all, today, to say nothing of presenting and formatting them, here. Can you help? Place further information into comments?
Santorum in Jackson, Mississippi, photo: Rogelio V. Solis, AP If memory serves me correctly, CNNs John King last evening pointed out there according to their exit polling, about six to eight percent of Alabama voters called themselves Democrats. However, I did not find breakdown by party at the exit poll pages in cnn.com. That seems odd in itself, eh?
And if that many Democrats were willing to tell exit pollsters what they did, how many more just walked by them, refusing to be polled? If you were a prankster-voting in such a case, would you want to be examined by a pollster? Maybe some would. Maybe more would not.
CNNs exit polls (for Mississippi and for Alabama) and the actual vote counts may be found at their site (and perhaps others have published exit polls, please tell me if you find any). Santorums final edge over Gingrich was approximately two percent in Mississippi and six percent in Alabama. Theoretically, both of these tallies could be within the margin of pranking.

6 to 8% of Santorum's votes were Obama Democrats.....Believe it.
Why on earth do we still have open primaries?
Remember how exit polls were oh-so-firmly showing Kerry was winning across the land vs. Bush in 2004?
Sorry... try again.
I am sure that that is what happened in SC, and Ga, how can someone with 14 % national support win anything.
I’d believe it. And I’d believe they were being some of the anti-Gingrich robo-calls on Sunday and Monday.
I don’t doubt it, obama would MUCH rather go up against wimpy than Gingrich...any day of the week and twice on election day.
I believe it. Santorum is the Left’s dream candidate for Obama to run against.
If Democrats give us Santorum over Romney,I will thank them kindly.
If Democrats and big labor like Santorum, then maybe Santorum is a lot more electable in the general election than some give him credit for.
After all, it’s hard to collect union dues when your workforce is drawing food stamps.
I believe it. One of my liberal friends in AL was talking about how he hadn’t decided who to vote for on Monday evening. He hates them all but probably voted for the weakest option.
Yes, of the 3 (Romney, Gingrich, Santorum), Newt would be the best one to defeat 0bama.
Just like Michigan.
A friend of mine in Birmingham says at least 10% of the votes for Lawyer Rickey in Jefferson County were democrat voters.
I’d be surprised if there weren’t a lot more than that in a few other cities. The democrat fascists as well as the Vichy Republicans are scared to death that Newt might somehow get the nomination. Lawyer Ricky or Bishop Romney they don’t worry about.
No it’s you who’s being punked. The vast majority of non Republican votes are going to Romney. Why? Because with 2 liberals running its a guarantee that a lib wins.
Move over Paul Qeada, there’s a new batch of nut jobs on the block.
You just refuse to admit that our primary is being manipulated and tampered with, and the evidence proves it.
You are in for a serious “wake up” very soon.
[Why on earth do we still have open primaries?]
I agree, this party is run by morons!
