"People over 65 in Alabama seem to be going for Romney......UGH! Why? "

1) They watch Broadcast network TV

2) They think Romney will make fewer changes, therefore, they are less likely to lose their SS check.

Polls that look good to napscoordinator are not necessarily a good thing.

Why? I like Santorum and he is doing well in at least one state. I know you might like him but he is extremely conservative as proof of all the states he has won.

Only Butler and Franklin Counties reporting so far. And in Franklin, Santorum has 73% of the vote (probably 7 people). Must be an Alabama coal mining town!

Older people might be less ideological in mindset and Romney is the candidate with the least threatening public persona who also incidentally talks about increasing social security, securing the safety net etc. Never will be a Mitt supporter but I can still see the attraction.

I’m watching CNN. Refuse to watch Faux.

Santorum was on Kilmeade's radio show today and accused Foxnews of being in the bag for Romney! About time somebody said it! Of course, Kilmeade, the biggest Romney cheerleader at Foxnews, denied it! Been pretty apparent to me that Fox is in the bag for Romney and I scream at the TV every morning when Kilmeade speaks. Ah, but I'm just a southern commoner!

Hey Onyx! Good to see ya! I thought I'd better say something nice after my rant! I'm glad I got it off my chest. Mrs. BB1 says hello!

I am a Mississippian from a lineage dating to Natchez 1794 and pre statehood Indian treaties

I am ashamed and apologize to everyone if these exit polls stand

For a state where whites vote 90% GOP these days i am without words

We have let everyone down.

Just seems to be how this primary is going...depressing all around from FOX to GOPE to our pundits and now Dixie

I need a drink...and i don't drink

I have no explanation

If Romney wins either state you need to call for a recount, because pigs are about to fly. Now sane southerner will vote for a New England liberal who is pro-abortion and pro-homo marriage. If they do, they have either lost all their sense, have no sense, or have drank the koolaid. They will be the laughing stock of the South.

There’s no info so it’s all conjecture and theory exit polls. They have been manipulating the exit polls to make it look worse for Speaker Gingrich to push the drop out meme.

You know, I’m beginning to think this, too. I’m just NAUSEOUS over the news coverage, over the GOP-E, Faux News, idiot Americans who don’t know their ass from their nose out voting ....

I’m just SICK TO DEATH of it all — I want a CHOICE. I want someone to represent ME. I want someone who represents Americans.

I’m just nuts enough tonight to want it — and to hope for it. Because I’d be there. I just CANNOT vote for Romney!!

Here is an explanation. Bad candidates on the conservative end.

I watched Allen West on Cavuto today and was so amazed and totally impressed.

I would get my behind out and walk over broken glass to vote for the guy.

Sarah won’t run 3rd party, she already said running 3rd party is an automatic Obama win..she wants him gone, we all do..but the GOP is once again stuck on stupid, nominating a moderate progressive instead of a TRUE Conservative..its like 2008 all over again except Romney has better hair

http://michellemalkin.com/2012/02/28/toughen-up-mitt-ercup/ <— best source of many on who pushed for open primary. Romney and his people were after Democrat votes for years.

Santorum called for Reagan Democrats to support him now and in the Fall.

I really like Santorum too, more every day. He's passionate and people react to him with enthusiasm. Though I'd be thrilled if Newt took MS and Rick took AL.

As long as Mitt doesn't take either.

For goodness sake! You have to get yourself together - at the last primary, you had a tattoo on your backside that had to be painted over by your husband - now, you have to have peppers!

Send me some of whatever you’re cooking, plus send some to Gator as he has had the flu and peppers should help.

I’m with you on that one. In fact I believe it’s the only way I would bother to vote this time. If the American people want this country to go down to a new revolution let it be but I will fight for only the right people to turn this country around. Santorum or Romney ain’t it.

This was my advice to the Santorum Camp several days ago, based on Reagan 1976 and 1980 races. Re: those deep south Southern Democrat/Reagan Democrat voters in crossover states

I am glad to see they did it--apparantly. This is one segment I doubt Bishop Willard would appeal to. It could provide the margin for victory for Big Rick in at least one of these states. However, I will hold it right there, since those three are bunched up so closely together, and it could flip flop all ever lovin' night here, plus, the big game is, delegates they get out of it. And how that all shakes out.
