Thought you might find this interesting. Although it is late in the game, it is encouraging to see that the majority in the primaries want a conservative candidate. Paul, Santorum, Gingrich have more than a million more votes than Romney so far in the primaries. Those who are behind Paul and Gingrich are very unlikely to vote for Romney (the poll above seems to indicate that if Gingrich dropped out, his supporters would be divided with 3 out of 5 to Santorum, 1 out of 5 to Romney, and the other 1 out of 5 watching on the fence). This thing is far from over...
Then again, we can't win the general election if the only states we win are the traditional red states. We need a few purple states to obtain the necessary electoral votes as we saw in 2008. flame away.
Newt Gingrich isn’t getting out of this election, period. So you just dream on.
I’m not voting for Santorum because he is a pathological liar who has supported abortion in the past and has lied to you and others about his stance. There is a very good reason the folks in Pennsylvania voted his out of office - he is a hypocrite!
As for Romney - he is a Republican pretender, and a liberal Democrat in reality.
This isn’t over until the balloon drop at the end of the convention in August.
Mitt needs Newt so his people can claim to be Newt people so they can smear Santorum without getting Romney's hands dirty. If these guys would just admit they would rather have Mitt win the nomination than Santorum they wouldn't be a bunch of mean-spireted hypocrites cuz the fact is-a hit on Rick is a kiss on Mitt.
Newt came in with class and now he has become a pathetic shadow of his former self—a useful idiot of the GOP-e RINOs.
Wonder what Mitt promised him?
I’m not going to beat up on Gingrich but the simple fact is that now demanding that all get out of the race and conservatives do as they’re told.
I’m a Santorum guy and won’t be voting for Romney under any circumstances. I haven’t forgotten what an arrogant ass he is.
Probably time to just leave it alone and let it play out. It is too late for the non Romney’s. I doubt any miracles are going to happen.
When you do the math using the states left, Romney will get his 1144.
There are a bunch of Romney “sure win” winner take all states coming up.
Even if this would end up at the convention, the GOP-e has Romney covered.
“My own thought is a Santorum/Gingrich ticket at a brokered convention.”
I agree. I am concerned it won’t reach at brokered state though.
But nice graphics though.
However, the biggest difference between Romney and Obama is on the other side of the ledger: 53 percent of Americans hold favorable views of the president; for Romney, that number slides to 34 percent. Positive ratings of Obama steadily improved over the course of his fight for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination something not evident in Romneys ratings this time around, or last.
The GOP elites, who endorsed, or praised Romney, arent as smart as they though they were.
Lets hope voters wake up, and vote for the best candidate in the primaries - Santorum - and not the candidate they mistakingly THINK can win (Romney).
