Skip to comments.2012 GOP Primary Tracker (Votes and Delegates by State per Candidate and totals)
Posted on 02/08/2012 7:55:36 AM PST by Jeff Head
I have been keeping my own record of the 2012 GOP Primary results, adding each primary as it occurs.
I have created an html/internet version which I have posted here on FR a few times. I have been asked by a number of FR members to post a thread where I can update this file regularly, so this is that thread.
Last night we saw what could be a bell weather for this primary election. Rick Santorum, agruably the most conservative candidate left in the field, had a clean sweep, winning the popular vote in Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota...and doing so convincingly. He certainly will, and deserves to make the case that with five out of eight popular vote wins, he could be considered the Romney alternative. Here's the table as it sits today. I have it going out through the Primary in Texas, but will extend it as necessary. I will update it on this thread when the final totals are in for yesterday's (Feb 7, 2012) races as they are 99% and 95% complete now, when the delegates are apportioned (later for each of the last three states), and when other primaries occur.
|2012 GOP Primaries||Date||Romney||Gingrich||Santorum||Paul||Huntsman||Perry||Bachman||Cain||Totals|
|At large Del's||19||2||1||0||0||0||0||22|
At least I wrote mine out. :>)
Now I gotta go look those up.
Jeff, Obama puts his pants on one leg at a time. He’s just a man. He can send out a covert, conspiratorial hit team to take us out. He can take my life.
But, he can’t take my soul.
People around here are a whole lot more in awe of Obama than they are of God.
Seriously, man, the dude thinks there are 57 states. He can’t string together a coherent sentence in a serious setting when away from his teleprompters.
One leg at a time, Sweet Jesus.
That’s all Obama can do.
He hasn’t the strength
to do everything they think he can do.
He’s just a man, sweet Jesus
And power may never be mine
But remind me today, he puts on his pants
One leg at a time
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified;1 do not be discouraged,2 for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”3
II Chron 7:14 14 if my people, who are called by my name,1 will humble2 themselves and pray and seek my face3 and turn4 from their wicked ways, then will I hear5 from heaven and will forgive6 their sin and will heal7 their land.
Isaiah 41:8-11 8 “But you, O Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, 9 I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. 10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 11 “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
Romans 8:31-39 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Thank you so much for those beautiful Scriptures, dear brother in Christ!
Come on xzins, I wanted folks to look them up...it makes it so much mor meanigful...at leas to me.
Thanks for posting them here just the same...I probably should have done so in my ealrier post.
Of course Obama is just a man...bu he, and his abettors and cronies are destroying the nation beofe our very eyes. And why?
Because he is a marxist ideolog...but also because the American people elected him.
We simply must do all in our power to inform the American people and then ourselves to stand so we might preserve our nation, our Republic, our Freedoms, our wat of life for our kids and grandkids...then having done all we can, to wait on the Lord, for in the end, He will, as Patrik Henry said, help us fight these battles.
Dear Svior, let it be so.
But as our forefathers before us, it is incomant on us to try, to work hard to preserve them and then accept His will.
So many conservatives are fearful of this man, and he's just a man.
Here's the scenario. Go here real clear politics electoral map
Now click on Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and New Hampshire.
The pubbies have chosen, as you can see, a guy who's going to lose to a doofus who thinks there are 57 states.
Do you honestly think America will cease to exist in 4 years? I don't think so!
So, we begin a process NOW of building a conservative coalition for the future in a new setting that isn't controlled totally by rules written by rino insiders.
I believe we have reached a point in America in which purism is not possible if we are to pull America back from the brink. We cannot weigh the constitutionality of our beliefs, or demand adherence to Christian beliefs, purely when considering the person(s) for whom we vote.
The intent of the two axoms regarding not throwing out the baby with the bath water and choosing the lesser of two evils have probably never been more urgent than they will be this November.
The deceit and utter disdain, for both the foundations of our republic and its Christian underpinnings, that this administration has exhibited is mind-numbing. And what makes matters even more unpalatable is the fact that the hypocrisy includes visible, public affirmations of both, while much of the administration's behind-the-scenes activity is aimed at diluting, if not destroying, both our Founders' vision and the impact that Christian doctrine had on that vision.
But God will not be mocked -- Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows ... Gal 6:7
... which isn't to say that Christians should simply serve as spectators, resting on that promise alone -- Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it ... Ps 13-14.
Turn from, Seek and pursue are not passive verbs. Christians are not exorted to simply rest on God's promises, but rather to implement His teachings.
In today's America, turning from evil and doing good seems to require the kind of 'religious test' you are suggesting, A-G. When our leadership espouses a false Christianity, while at the same time embracing a religion that is openly and violently opposed to Christ's teachings, I (as I believe you) think we must see as our first priority in doing good the removal of that leadership. If an alternative leader's concept of God does not coincide with what we see as Christian doctrine, the fact that he is the only viable alternative, and the fact that he is not working to remove the Christian underpinnings of our republic, must provide reason enough for our support. Mitt Romney is an honest and decent man, as are all of the Mormons I have known personally. For that reason, although I cannot campaign for him, I can and will campaign for his success in removing a dangerous, deceitful man who uses a false Christianity for political purposes while elevating and subsidizing a religion that seeks both the death and subjugation of non-believers.
If such a litmus test is unconstitutional, it is only because our Founders never dreamed that the survival of America as a free republic would depend on its implementation.
May God bless and strengthen you and yours in these troubling times ...
Virgil Goode is a dedicated Baptist gentleman from Virginia. His prayers are to our Triune God. As a praying man, he has despite years of criticism stood 100% on the side of life. He has opposed any muslimification of the US through refusal to enforce our immigration laws and through any diversity visa programs that permit immigrants from jihadist countries to enter the US.
As a Trinitarian Christian your concerns would be taken before the Throne of Grace by a Trinitarian President Goode who would be praying to the ONLY true God.
That cannot be said of either Romney or Obama.
I might add, that your test is really one of this individual's actions as opposed to his particular religion. Clearly his 20 years in that church impacts his actions, and it was his choice to go there.
But, if, as he says, he did not agree with these things and had then "chosen" in his presidency to govern constitutionally, and from a standpoint of the clear fundamental moral and republican principles upon which the constitution is based, we would not have the problem with him and seek to vote him out because of his religion.
No, it is precisely because he has chosen to act in concert with what Wright teaches, with what he learned from his associations with William Ayers, Frank Davis, Ralla Ordinga, and so many other radical anti-Americans that he must be removed.
There are so many instances of this rabidly anti-American ideology reflected in his administration that one can scaresly comprehend them all.
The list goes on and on, and is absolutely stunning. I never believed I would witness such overt actions at the Presidential level...but we have.
Xzins, of course there will be an America alive in four years if Obama remains president.
But what manner of America will it be if the list above continues and is compounded with even worse?
My and other's point on this thread is simply that the America that exists will be so far removed from the Constitution, and so drastically and hopelessly in debt, with the Free Market all but destroyed, that the ability for America to recover to her constitutional footing will be terribly inhibitied and drastically reduced.
It may take generations to recover...if we can at all and if we have the will at that point...and then, it may still not happen short of armed restoration as the current path continues. Such a confrontation would be horrific beyond description and should be avoided through the methods we now have at our disposal while it is still possible.
We need to do, IMHO, all in our power to defeat Barak Obama at the ballot box so we can avoid the very chance that any or all of these things might happen, and because he is so decidedly anti-Constitution and anti-American to his core.
I believe that's what we are saying and I pray we up to the task, particularly when the opposition candidate has such a poor record. As ppor as it is, it, IMHO, cannot be compared to what is happening under Obama.
God grant that we, and His Holy Spirit, can be enough indfluence on that man, if elected, that he will fulfill the very good promises he is making now as he campaigns and that he will not drift away from them and not slip back into trying to compromise with the very face of evil itself.
Even with all that...I do not "fear" the man Obama. I do want to do all I can to stop the evil that is behind him and supporting him...and perhaps, just perhaps in so doing, avoid some of the judgements of a merciful God that may else come to this land for the evil occurring here, and who may show us His infinite compassion as a people if we rise up and use the rights He has endowed us with to improve our land, so that II Chron 7:14 can become a reality for us once again.
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
I believe a part of turning "from their wicked ways," easily could be construed to mean doing all we can to defeat this wicked administration at the ballot box.
Absolutely: anyone who does NOT clearly vote to stop Obama by voting for the Republican nominee---the only legit chance to stop him--- is continuing in "wicked ways." God used Cyrus to do great things, and Cyrus, not a Jew, did more to advance Jewish greatness than most of the Jewish kings because he was open to the word of Yahweh. I certainly thing God can use a Romney, who is open to His word, over an Obama, who is open only to the words of the moon god.
The same for Romney. His wicked ways are well catelogued here on Free Republic. $50 abortions, pro-gay marriage licenses, deceitful taxes, medicare fraud, etc.
Romney has a bad record...but also the governor in Mass does not have nearly the power, because the democrats there have made it that way...to stop the democratic house and senate.
What you really see in Mass is not RomneyCare...though he went along...what you see is MassCare, and MassAbortions, and MassHomosexual agendas and MassJudges. Romney vetoed hundreds of things that were over-ridden by the Mass legislature.
So, though his record was no where near what we would want, a lot of things are laid at his feet that are the real actions of an absolutely and abjectly DNC controlled State House legislature. Romney could not have stopped that in any case...either the times he tried, or the times he went along to get along (which is what most of us hold against him).
Well, now, he says he has changed and he is campaigning on and supporting things very much different than what went on in Mass. (Ie. Against abortion, for the Marriage Amendement, much better on the 2nd amendment, cleary Free Market economics, much stronger on national defense, much stronger on the borders and immigration, able to have much more power in selecting conservative judges, etc., etc.) If we deliver a House and Senate who will vote on the laws to enact his promises, he will sign them and we will be immeasurably better off that with Obama.
That’s the point. Either we let the Republic be flushed with an absolutely known quantity in Obama, or we hold Romney to his promises and commitments in an effort to have something a whole lot better. I believe that’s what LD and others are trying to say...I know it is what I am saying.
Therefore, once again, it comes down to voting for the utter wickedness of Obama . . . or not. You will not be excused through rationals and reasonings as to why you did not want to vote to STOP OBAMA. Because we do not count negative votes in our system. We only count votes "for." All Libertarians are voting for Obama. All third party voters of every type cannot ease their consciences through a bunch of logical flim-flammery because they are electing Obama. Simple, really.
Actually, LS, each vote gets counted and it goes, if on the ballot in that state, for the individual for whom it was cast.
What you’ve offered is your opinion on how to analyze a vote.
“Party” is not mentioned in the Constitution, nor is a 2-party system, nor, for that matter, is a “primary election”.
You are entitled to your opinions — and I think they are thoughtful ones, so don’t think I’m attacking you — but the facts can be interpreted and analyzed in different ways.
Have a great day, FRiend!
I understand what you’re saying. Yes, votes are counted. No, parties are not mentioned. But I’m saying that if God can use a heathen like Cyrus to lift up the Jews over their own unbelieving prophets and kings, surely he can lift up someone like Romney, whatever one thinks of his religion or background, over what is an absolute, unrepentant evil of Obama. I voted for Newt, gave money to Cain, but I couldn’t sleep at night if Obama won OH by a few hundred votes-—and hence the election-—and I had voted the “pristine” candidate of my choice who had no chance of actually stopping the (evil) One.
We are two of the longest surviving Freepers, LS...and fellow Ohioans. So, I trust your fidelity and your intentions.
For my part, my religious beliefs prevent me from voting for an abortionist and a gay marriage advocate. It is heretical for me even to consider it.
Therefore, I will vote for Virgil Goode, who at this point is the only conservative in the race.
Thank you so much for your encouragements and for your insights, dear joanie-f!
Thank you both so very much for sharing your insights!
Well, of the six of us discussing this lately, of the FR join dates, xzins, you are the oldest from the 1997 class. Noumenon is next, then LS, etc. all of which are from the 1998 class. 14-15 years each here on FR for us each.
We have, to date all survived the various ups and downs and worked together all these years.
I believe every one of these opinions is seasoned and true to the Republic...but, as in all things, we each have our freedom of conscience and we must choose the path each of us think is best.
I honestly believe we are close to, or already falling over the tipping point, and that the first order of business is to keep the principle counter-balance to our Republican principles, who holds office now, from having another four years to push the Republic clean over the edge into free-fall.
Other’s belief differently, that we must seek and fine a more conservative candidate to defeat him with...and believe me, I wish the same. I have a long association with members of the Constitution Party and have voted for them here in Idaho. Their platform is the best platform out there IMHO...but at the Presidential level, IMHO, right now it only serves to split the conservative vote and ensure a democratic/progressive/socialist victory. That party has to grow from the ground up first before it will be in a position to challenge at the top of the ticket...and I look forward to such a day.
BTW, here are the sign on dates of those of whom I spoke:
xzins - 3/26/1997
noumenon - 1/16/1998
LS - 2/4/1998
betty boop - 3/9/1998
alamo-girl - 3/14/1998
jeffhead - 7/26/1998
joanie-f - 11/13/1998
Lots of FR experience there.
