2012 GOP Primary Tracker (Votes and Delegates by State per Candidate and totals)
JEFFHEAD.COM ^ | 8 Feb 2012 | Jeff Head

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.

You are very welcome. I'll update again after the contests on Saturday (Kansas, Guam, Virgin Islands with 58 total delegates), and then again after next Tuesday (Mississippi, Alabama, Samoa and Hawaii with 119 total delegates).

That's 177 more delegates in the next five days. Important stuff and we will see how the candidates fair. If Santorum can take Alabama and Mississippi, then Newt will probably be compelled to drop out and throw in behind Rick. If not, then I guess they keep on splitting the vote.

Here's the figures after Romney took both Guam and the Marianna Islands last night...small contests ignored by the other candidates but to which Romney sent one of his sons. The results are that he added all eighteen of those delegates to his count.

As I have stated, Santorum and Gingrich have to unite soon to stop Romney. If Santorum can upset Gingrich's southern strategy and win Mississippi and Alabama, perhaps then Gingrich will throw in behind Santorum.

Here's the latest data.

Here's the results after Saturday. Santorum's impressive win in Kanasas and delegate count there was completely offset by Rommney's wins in the Island caucuses (Guam, Marrianas and the Virgin Islands). Santorum got 33 for the day, Romney got 32.

All eyes now on Tuesday and Mississippi and Alabama, though, once again in delegates, if Romney takes Hawaii and Samoa, then with the proportion he wins in Mississippi and Alabama, he will probably add up to slightly more delegates for him overall.

That's how he is playing it. He has the organization and the money to be in all the places, including the small ones like Samoa where another 9 delegates goes down almost completely uncontested.

Rick and Gingrich simply have to unite if they hope to stop Romney having the chance to win the nomination outright.

Here's the latest as of this morning, the 11th from my GOP PRIMARY TRACKER (I have commentary there too):

After last night's four contests, here's the latest update and commentary on my GOP Primary Tracker Site:

On Tuesday, March 13, 2012, four Primaries and Caucuses were held for the GOP Presidential Primary, Alabama (50), Mississippi (40), Hawaii (20), and American Samoa (9) for a total of 119 delegates. This marked the big test of Newt Gingrich's "Southern Strategy" wherein he hoped to begin winning the majority of the southern states in order to place himself back in contention. For Romney it offered the opportunity for a potential "knock out punch" if he could win both Southern states by showing he could win in the very conservative south. For Santorum it offered the opportunity to solidify himself as the clear conservative alternative to the leader, Mitt Romney.

Santorum won both Alabama and Mississippi, but by small marins, 2-5%. Romney, though hoping for perhaps at least one victory, did not win either...but still did relatively well staying very competitive to the other two and getting close to a third of the delegates. In fact, all three men basically spit the votes and the delegates into thirds, with Santorum winning a few percentage points (and delegates) more than that.

It was heralded as a big victory for Santorum, and it was, because he can and will bring much more pressure to bear on Gingrich to unite with him and throw his weight and campaign behind Santorum's. To date Gingrich indicates he will not do that. In the two southern states Santorum took 31 delegates, Gingrich took 24 and Romney got 23.

But later in the night (actually the early morning) the results from Hawaii and American Samoa came in. They completely blunted Santorum's delegate win. Romney won Samoa taking all 9 delegates, and he handliy won Hawaii by over 20 points and took 15 of the 20 delegates there. This means that for the night, ROmney picked up 47 delegates, Santorum got 32, and Gingrich got 25, and Pual got 4. Romney increased his delegate lead count significantly, even though Santorum won Alabama and Mississippi. This shows that Romney's bull dog tactics, taking advantage of Gingrich and Santorum splitting the more conservative vote are working, further increasing his lead in delegate counts, which he is focused on like a laser, with each set of contests.

In the overall race to date, Romney now leads in popular vote with over 3.5 million votes with 38.50%. Santorum is second with 2.4 million votes or 26.35% , Gingrich is third with 2.1 million votes or 23% and Ron Paul is fourth with 974 thousand votes or 10.7%. But, although he has only won 38.5% of the popular vote, this has translated to date into 520 delgates or 52% of the total delegates awarded to date. Santorum follows with 249 delegates or 21%, Gingrich with 148 or 15% and Paul with 83 delegates or 11%. At this rate, Romney has a clear chance of clinching the nomination before the convention.

In my opinion, this tough primary season, despite pundents prognostications, continues to strengthen the candidates, keeping the GOP message at the top of the news cycle, and preparing the nominee to fight Obama. Any of the four would be orders of magnitude better than Barack Obama and his dismal failures. Here's the GOPTracking results as of Sunday, March 11, 2012:

Again, it is even more clear after these primaries, that only by uniting, can Santorum and Gingrich prevent Romney from having the chance of winning the nomination outright. It would not have helped in Hawaii or American Samoa, but it would have given a much larger delegate count to the single more conservative candidate in Alabama and Mississippi. If they do not do this soon, mathematically, Romney will ultimately eak out a win and reach the golden number of delegates before the convention, sometime probably in late May or early June. It still seems, for whatever reason, that Gingrich is unwilling to do this.

With Gingrich's "southern strategy" now in a shambles (He has won two (Georigia and South Carolina), Romney has won two (Florida and Virginia) and Santorum has won three (Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama)), the pressure on Gingrich to unite behind Santorum is going to grow in both strength and urgency. Seven southern states votes and Santorum i ss leading the pack with three and Romney and Gingrich with two each in the south.

Here's the latest update to my GOP Trcker Page...I'll update again after tomorrow's Illinois Primary, then again after Louisiana on Saturday.

I've added a US State and Territory map tracking the wins..


2012 GOP PRIMARY CAMPAIGN TRACKER
JLHNews
, March 19, 2012

On Saturday, March 17, 2012, Mitt Romney won the Puerto Rico GOP caucuses overwhelmingly, ammassing 83% of the vote and capturing all 20 delegates.

Both Santorum and Romney had campaigned there, but the Island went overwhelming for Romney. It tuens out all of the US terrirories (four of them) have all gone overwhelmingly for Romney, with very high percentages and have given him 45 felegates altogether.

Eyes are now on Illinois, a large state that is generally democratic (Barack Obama's home state), but where the GOP hopes to make in-roads. Santorum has campaigned heavily there hoping for an upset, and the polls had been close within the last two weeks, with Santorum within 4-5 points...but now that lead for Romney is growing. A large win by ROmney in Illinois would be another feather in his delegate cap.

In the overall race to date, Romney now leads in popular vote with over 3.6 million votes with 39.40%. Santorum is second with 2.4 million votes or 26% , Gingrich is third with 2.1 million votes or 23% and Ron Paul is fourth with 975 thousand votes or 11%. But, although he has only won 39.4% of the popular vote, this has translated to date into 532 delgates or 54% of the total delegates awarded to date. Santorum follows with 237 delegates or 24%, Gingrich with 139 or 14% and Paul with 66 delegates or 7%. At this rate, Romney has a clear chance of clinching the nomination before the convention.

In my opinion, this tough primary season, despite pundents prognostications, continues to strengthen the candidates, keeping the GOP message at the top of the news cycle, and preparing the nominee to fight Obama. Any of the four would be orders of magnitude better than Barack Obama and his dismal failures. Here's the GOPTracking results as of Sunday, March 11, 2012:

It becomes clearer and clearer after each contest, that only by uniting, can Santorum and Gingrich prevent Romney from winning the nomination outright. If they do not do this soon, mathematically, Romney will ultimately win and reach the golden number of delegates before the convention, sometime probably in late May or early June. It still seems, for whatever reason, that Gingrich is unwilling to do this.

With Gingrich's "southern strategy" failing (He has won two (Georigia and South Carolina), Romney has won two (Florida and Virginia) and Santorum has won three (Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama)), the pressure on Gingrich to unite behind Santorum is going to grow in both strength and urgency. Seven southern states votes and Santorum is leading in the south with three and Romney and Gingrich with two each.

In the end, I will support whichever of these candidates wins the GOP nomination against the abject marxist ideolog, Obama, as any one of them will be far better. Four more years of his horrific leadership and fundamental change could easily put this nation in a economic, debt, foreign policy, and energy hole we will have a very difficult and very painful time of digging our way out of...and at the cost of decades of heavy burden placed on our children and grandchildren if we can do so at all and reverse the trends and mechanisms Obama is putting in place.

Right now with the delegate count, Romney is playing a disciplined and smart campaign for himself, ammassing over 50% of the delegates with just 40% of the vote. the two of them together (Newt and Rick) could stop that if they come together and one of them steps back for the betterment of the country.

My critique of your analysis is that, unfortunately, not enough of the Gingrich/Santorum voting bloc would remain intact in that eventuality. After either Gingrich or Santorum dropped out, sufficient numbers of their bloc would migrate into Romney's camp to put him at or above the 50% level for the remainder of the primary contests, ultimately securing Mitt the nomination.

We really needed someone like Sarah Palin to step up in 2012. In retrospect, I believe she really missed an opportunity, although I also think she may very well have another opportunity in 2016, regardless of whether Romney or 0bama wins the general election.

And Perry probably should have stuck it out for a while longer. He might have been able to recover.

I really feel sorry for Newt, who I believe is the only announced candidate who could have decisively dominated 0bama both ideologically and intellectually in the general election debates.

I continue to have significant reservations about Santorum, and sincerely and honestly believe that he is "not ready for prime time", and while I would support his candidacy if he were to be nominated, I don't think he could win the general election if put to that ultimate test.

Romney is, of course, simply abysmal, and unlikely to energize conservatives enough to defeat the incumbent, even though 0bama is quite weak.

Palin was my first choice. Sorry she did not run, but I am sure they looked at it from their family’s perspective with their kids and special needs and decided that the experience would be detrimental to the family where their first commitment and responsibility is located.

Then I was for absolutely and viscuosly Cain and he was lynched by the media because he represented as clear and dangerous a threat to the lib plantation as Sarah. Funny how immediately after he dropped out all of the claims and all of the women coming forward stopped on a dime...even for the ones who had come forward. They had accomplished their mission.

Then I have came to Rick Santorum, for whom I have the same concerns as you, but who represents my values more closely than the others. I have to believe that the base would get behind him and I can only have trust and faith that God in Heaven’s would perhaps smile on us and aid us if we worked our hearts out for the proper principles and values...and particularly against the evil this current administration and their cohorts represent.

Having said that, I believe Newt would be very strong as a leader and could address the problems we face. I have one strong, nagging concern about Newt that I have voiced to anyone who will listen. It deals with his close association and support for Alvin Topfler in the 1980s and 1990s. Topfler is a new-age progressive who openly believes the Constitution is outdated and needs to be re-written or replaced. He writes about this, among his other progressive ideas in a couple of books called, The Third Wave,” and, “Politics of the Third Wave/” Gingrich wrote the intro for that last book, heartily recommending it. When he became speaker he made it required reading for new freshmen GOP congressmen.

To my knowledge he has never repudiated that association and it concerns me.

Anyhow, whatever else you may say about the man, Romney has run a disciplined and smart campaign. Yes, he has a lot of money, but he has spent it strategically. With the 40% of the overall vote he has amassed, he has garnered 54.5% of the delegates to date. He is using his resuorces to win where he needs to and march steadliy towards the magic delegate number steadily.

Of his 20 victories, 11 of them were by a margin that would have won even if the entirety of Newts and Ricks vote was combined, and seven of those by an absolute majority. And the states where he wins big like that, outside of Ohio and Michigan, have netted him the large majority of his delegates. So, even if Newt and Rick were combined with a 100% coming toigether (which as you poined out is not likely...probably more on the ordr of 80%) the race would still be very close at this point and the best we would probably get is a brokered convetnion anyway.

Romney’s past decisions are why I cannot support him 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. He is taking different positions now and indicating strongly that he will do those things. I believe he pragmatically ran for Governor in a liberal state and said things that would get him elected. He was never “for” abortion, but indicated he would not fight it as the law of the land. he then says he came around to understanding he had to fight it. For me, particularly as an active LDS which Rommney also is, in fact he was a leader for a number of years, this position is hard to understand and reconcile. But it is what he says.

As President, with the promises he has made, and as a pol who wants to keep his poisition as long as he can, I believe he will try and do the things he has indicated. Particularly if we have the Congress to drive him that way. I do not like having to be in that position...yet it may be the position we find ourselves in.

In the end, I will support the GOP nominee against Obama. If it is Romney, and if he picks a good VP candidate (and you can bet he will try and pick someone who will neergize the base), and most importantly if we deliver strong majorities in the House and Senate (which IMHO we must do anyway for any candidate if we hope to make any good progress in turning things around), then I suspect Romney coulkd have a successful and impactful Presidency.

Certainly far better than what we will see with another four years of the marxist, OBama.

After Louisiana, here's how the race is stacking up based on the latest update to my GOP Primary Tracker Site..

April will be a strong month for Romney. Outside of Pennsylvania and perhaps Wisconsin, Romney may sweep the other six states and put himself over 800 delegates. If Santorum can prevent that, he may ensure a brokered convention, otherwise Romney may clinch it in May or June.

Thank you, katie, and you’re welcome!

I have a daughter named Katie, she’s our oldest, now 33 with three wonderful sons, my three grandsons out of eight graandshildren altogether. We used to always call her “katiedidit”, hehehe.

I pray to God in Heaven that whatever else we do, that we run Obama and his admin and supporters out of town opn a rail in the Whte House and the Congress. I pray we can put aside the in-fighting and in the end accomplish that for the good of our kids and grandkids...because their futures ride on it.

Enjoyed your site "America at the Crossroads of History" and yes we are facing the most urgent election in my lifetime. I fear 4 more years of Obama and what it will do to what is left of this country.

LOL @ your daughter and I sharing the same nickname. Everytime something went wrong around the house..my sister's would say "Katiedidit!" and the name stuck! God bless you Jeff for your patriotism

Here's the latest on my overall GOP Presidentail Primary and Caucus Tracker, as of April 4, 2012:


Yesterday, Tuesday, April 3, 2012, Mitt Romney swept all three primaries and caucuses in Maryland, Washington DC and Wisonsin. In so doing he amassed 85 of the 91 delegates available. the remaining 6 going to Rick Santorum. This was a significant win for Romney and propels him strongly toward the overall GOP nomination. Santorum had hoped to win Wisconsin and a majority of the delegates there in the hopes of building some momentum and being able to stop Romney's drive towards an outright nomination win before the GOP convention.

As it is, Romney's momentum towards that goal continues to build. and since Super Tuesday there can be little arguement that Romney's momentum towards that goal is an established fact. On Super Tuesday, March 6th, Romney won 6 of the 10 races, ammassing 226 delegates that day. By comparison, on that day Rick Santorum won three races and 87 delegates, Gingrich won 1 race and a total of 76 delegates, and Ron Paul picked up 21 delegates.

Now it is a month later, and in that time there have been 14 more races. Mitt Romney has won 10 of those races with another 236 delegates, Rick Santorum has won 4 races with 110 delegates, Newt Gingrich has picked up 12 delegtaes since March, and Ron Paul has picked up 4 delegates.

At thos point, it is doubtful that even if Gingrich threw in with Rick Santorum that they could stop Romney's drive towards an outright nomination before the convention. In order to stop Romney, Santorum must win the rest of the south convincingly, win Pennsylvania in the same manner, and win Texas convincingly. Otherwise, Mitt Romney will win the nomination either in late May or early June.

To date now, Romney has won 24 races, picked up 692 delegates and is winning right at 40% of the popular vote (4.5 million votes to date). Santorum has won 11 races, picked up 287 delegates and is winning 28% of the vote (3.1 million votes). Newt Gingrich has won two races, picked up 138 delegates nad is taking 20% of the vote (2.2 million votes), while Ron Paul has won 68 delegates and 10% of the vote 1.2 million votes).

This tough primary season, despite pundents prognostications, continues to strengthen the candidates, keeping the GOP message at the top of the news cycle, and preparing the nominee to fight Obama. Any of the four would be orders of magnitude better than Barack Obama and his dismal failures. Here's the GOPTracking results as of Wednesday, April 4, 2012:

The numbers in the chart above regarding the delegate count are telling the story. Romney though winning 40% of the vote, has translated that into 58% of the delegates. Santorum at 28% of the vote is at 24% of the delegates and the numbers and disparity get worse in this regard for Gingrich and Paul. Unless something rather dramatic happens, this trend will continue until Romney has won enough delegates to win the nomination.

In the end, I will support whichever of these candidates wins the GOP nomination against the abject marxist ideolog, Obama, as any one of them will be far better for our nation. Four more years of Obama's horrific leadership and fundamental change could easily put this nation in a economic, debt, foreign policy, and energy hole we will have a very difficult and very painful time of digging our way out of. And then only at the cost of decades of heavy burden placed on our children and grandchildren to reverse the trends and mechanisms Obama is putting in place.

Obama's continued actions indicate the abject need for him to be replaced. Since the last update to this chart he has been caught off-mic indicating to the Russian President if they will just wait until the election is over and he wins, that he will be at that point much more flexible with nuclear weapons agreements and missile defense agreements than he can be now. He also has spoken improperly to the Supreme Court, attempting to influence their vote as they consider the constitutionality of his Health Care program, indicating he would consider it Judicial Activism if they took the "unprecedented" action of over-turning his Health Care program which barely passed congress in 2010. What is unprecednted is a sitting president speaking this way to try and directly influence the Supreme Court while they are considering the constitutionality of his own program. He is abusing his executive power to try and influence a seperate branch of government, provided with constitutional oversight, to vote a particular way. In addition, his personal involvement in the Treyvon-Zimmerman case in Florida, again, shows him interfering in an ongoing, undecided legal matter, trying to influence it a particular way when a young man was killed, but where there is some strong evidence that the young black man was attacking and beating the latino who killed him. Such cases must be decided through the legal process, and not through public opinion influenced by the press or the President. These are the acts of an individual wholly unprepared and unsuited for leadership at this level.

Once again, if you are so inclined, please let others know about this GOP Primary Tracker page.

After the five state primaries in the North East on Tuesday, April 24th, here's how the latest map and results look for the GOP Primaries on my GOP Primary and Caucus tracker site:


On April 10, 2012, Rick Santorum announced that he was withdrawing from the GOP race for President. It came as a surprise to many people who had expected him to try and gain momentum on April 24th with the primary in Pennsylvania. But due to finances and family concerns, he withdrew. This left Mitt Romney as all the more the presumptive nominee, although Newt Gingrich vowed to stay in the race in order to try and deny Romney the nomination. Ron Paul also announced his intent to remain in the race.

This set up a one on one for Newt as the last conservative alternative to Romney and Gingrich focused most of his attention on Deleware thinking that he had the best chance of winning an upset there of the five states having primaries that day, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Deleware, New York and Pennsylvania.

In addition, it set up a significant test for Romney. Would the GOP consolidate behind him? Would he win significant victories in all five states, despite the other two candidates in the race, and despite the fact that Santorum remained on the ballots? Would there be a GOP protest vote?

All of these questions, including Newt's potential for an upset were answered fairly early in the evening. Mitt Romney won all five states decisively. He won Connecticut with 69% of the vote, Deleware with 57%, New York with 62%, Pennsylvania with 58% and Rhode Island with 64%. The closest competitors were Newt in Deleware with 27%...or 30% behind Romney, and Ron Paul in Rhode Island with 24%...or 40% behind. Romney is slated to win virtually all of the 203 delegates available.

In the overall race to date, Romney now leads in popular vote with almost 5.2 million votes right and 42%. Santorum (though out of the race) is still second with 3.35 million votes and 27%. Gingrich is third with 2.4 million votes and 19%, and Ron Paul is fourth with 1.3 million votes and 10.6%. But, although Romney has only won 42% of the popular vote, this has translated into a whopping 65% of the total delegates awarded to date. Santorum follows with 20%, Gingrich with 10% and Paul with 5%. Short of an unbelievable major gaff, or tragedy of some sort, Romney will clinch the nomination in late May or early June.

In my opinion, this tough primary season has strengthen all of the candidates, and particularly Mitt Romney. It has also kept the GOP message at the top of the news cycle, preparing for the fight with Obama.

Here's the GOP Tracking results as of Tuesday, April 24, 2012:

Romney delivered what I considered to be his best speech of the year as the networks announced his projected victories in all five states. IMHO, it was a better speech than any that John McCain delivered in his entire 2008 campaign four years ago, and struck the exact chord needed to defeat Obama, calling him dead to rights on his record and directly addressing Obama's attempts to date to use class warfare, racial division, gender division, scare tactics and smears as his tools...turning them around with clear descriptions of the impact the Obama administration and its decisions have had on all of these areas and people.

I will support whichever candidate wins the GOP nomination against the abject marxist ideolog, Obama, and at this point this appears almost certainly to be Mitt Romney. See Why I will support Mitt Romney if he wins the GOP nomination.

Simply put, four more years of Obama's horrific leadership and fundamental change could easily put this nation in a economic, debt, foreign policy, and energy hole we will have a very difficult and very painful time of digging our way out of. And then only at the cost of decades of heavy burden placed on our children and grandchildren to reverse the trends and mechanisms Obama is putting in place.

Obama's continued actions indicate the abject need for him to be replaced. He has been caught off-mic indicating to the Russian President if they will just wait until the election is over and he wins, that he will be at that point much more flexible with nuclear weapons agreements and missile defense agreements than he can be now. He also has spoken improperly to the Supreme Court, attempting to influence their vote as they consider the constitutionality of his Health Care program, indicating he would consider it Judicial Activism if they took the "unprecedented" action of over-turning his Health Care program which barely passed congress in 2010. What is unprecednted is a sitting president speaking this way to try and directly influence the Supreme Court while they are considering the constitutionality of his own program. He is abusing his executive power to try and influence a seperate branch of government, provided with constitutional oversight, to vote a particular way. In addition, his personal involvement in the Treyvon-Zimmerman case in Florida, again, shows him interfering in an ongoing, undecided legal matter, trying to influence it a particular way when a young man was killed, but where there is some strong evidence that the young black man was attacking and beating the latino who killed him. Such cases must be decided through the legal process, and not through public opinion influenced by the press or the President. These are the acts of an individual wholly unprepared and unsuited for leadership at this level.

Once again, if you are so inclined, please let others know about this GOP Primary Tracker page.

Thank you oh so very much, dear Jeff, for your outstanding work here — and all that you do to “model” what a patriotic constitutional conservative “looks like” in action, not just speech.

You are welcome, betty...and thank you for the very kind words. They are too kind...bit I thank you just the same.

I pray we can defeat this abject marxist who is destroying our nation before our very eyes. That the American people will rise up, as they did in 2010, and double down to the shock and amazement of the prgressive, maxistic enemies who want to fundamentally change this republic and destroy its institutions and our liberty.

God grant that we be wise enough to do so. Oh what joy it would bring to my heart to see my fellow countrymen rise up even bolder and taller than they did in 2010...double down on it...and wholly and fully reject this Un-American agenda afflicting our nation, and the internal enemies prosecuting it!

Dear God in Heaven let it be so!

God’s speed betty, to you and yours!

May God grant that this be so!

To me, it's a case of "ABO" — Anybody But Obama. I'm only hoping and praying that the "ABR" crowd — Anybody But Romney — won't screw things up for us and facilitate the reelection of a deeply evil man who has taken a wrecking ball to the Constitution and is trying to turn the United States of America into a banana republic in which he can be a dictator-for-life like that miserable Venezuelan "president-for-life" Hugo Chavez.... (who seems unlikely to live much longer, given his medical situation....)

Even if we were all to agree about "ABO," he's going to be extremely difficult to remove from office.... He will use all the advantages of his office (most notably including taxpayer-paid electioneering) and of "lying, cheating and stealing" to win. This gives him a putative "advantage" over any rival, including Romney, who will not use such tactics.

JMHO, dear Jeff, FWIW.

Thank you ever so much for writing!

Dear Sister in Christ:

Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

And so am I to understand you as saying that Romney is "the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell?"

In so saying, I gather you mean: Let America be doomed first, ASAP, so that the Kingdom of God may be quickly established....

BTW, dear brother in Christ, I am sure that you are aware there is no "religious test" for any Office under the Constitution.

So why are you imposing one?

No Sister Betty...This is a line from Jesus. He was telling us not to be afraid of human beings but to fear God.

Sometimes we get so focused on the world, and its human powers, that we forget our ultimate Judge is God.

Dear brother in Christ, I NEVER forget that.

So, why are you setting yourself up as the judge of anyone?

Just curious....

Indeed. And if it's close, the Democrats often just recount until they win. Jeepers...

Any effort on my part to judge another would be wasted effort. I’m a nobody.

But, I do hear a lot of fear of this man, or that man, or this group, or that group.

The message of Jesus is to focus on God and what He thinks. “What is man”...that God is even mindful of him?

Thank you both so much for sharing your insights, dear siblings in Christ!

Truly we are accountable to God above all else. And His justice is perfection as He has us each, individually, building the scales whereby we will be judged, individually:

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: - Luke 6:37

Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. - Matt 5:7

We are to judge matters (I Corinthians 6:1-8) but not people (Matthew 7:1-2) except for those who would lead us in matters concerning God and those we are to judge by their fruits (Matthew 7:15-20). Moreover, whatever we find in someone else personally, God will find in us (Romans 2:1).

Concerning the matters involved in this dispute, whereas the Constitution does not require a religious test of anyone running for office I would apply such tests because I am accountable to God, not man. He truly is my Father Who art in heaven. Loving Him is the one and only Great Commandment.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. - Romans 8:15

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. - Matthew 22:37-38

For instance, if the candidate said he was an atheist, he obviously could not comprehend the concept of "inalienable rights" granted by The Creator. His oath of office would be an insult to God and of no effect due to his disbelief and I could not vote for him.

Likewise I could not vote for a Muslim because the faith requires absolute submission to itself which is against Christ and includes Sharia law in its beliefs - all of which clearly is antagonistic to God Himself and to the principles of the founders as evidenced by the foundation documents of this great country.

And frankly I do have "religious test" problems with both apparent candidates in this election.

Looking at the fruits - Obama, while confessing he is Christian, behaves as if he is Muslim at heart, e.g. canceling the National Day of Prayer while hosting a day of prayer for Muslims in the same year. We are to watch for wolves in sheep's clothing.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. - Matthew 7:15

And I cannot relate to the concept of God in LDS doctrine though Romney is obviously committed to its teachings and Mormons have been good neighbors for more than a century. So whereas I have no complaints about Mormon behavior, I will not be able to join with him in prayers for our country.

But I haven't been able to join with Obama in prayer either. So I would have to continue to join in prayer for our country with other Christians who mean the same Person when they say "Our Father."

Of the two though, Obama's beliefs have been evidenced and the more he bows to Islam the more anti-Christ and anti-Christian this country becomes.

He must be voted out of office on the basis of that religious test, whether my reasoning is Constitutional or not.

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.

and finally...

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.

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.

marxist idealogue

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.

Beautifully said, A-G.

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.

As always, Joanie, very well and very compellingly stated.

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.

Our system funnels all votes for anyone either than one of the two party candidates into the "useless" bin. That's simply history. Van Buren set it up that way. Always has worked that way. Republicans didn't want to unite behind Taft: they elected Wilson, one of the worst presidents ever. Republicans didn't like H.W. Bush, they helped elect Clinton. Regardless of what one things of Romney, THE SYSTEM forces a single choice, not multiple choice. U.S. elections are NOT multiple choice. If you want that, go to Israel or France.

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!

They are not merely wicked, Jeff - they are monstrous. Monstrous beyond human recognition. As it stands now, it will require a housecleaning of Biblical proportions to restore a measure of the rule of law based upon the sanctity of life and the rights of the individual to this once free Republic. It's a butcher's bill, payable in blood.

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.

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.
