I am just sick I tell ya

One thing I can say for you is that you have a flair for dramatics. I wonder if your profession is acting. If not, you should go to Hollywood. You would be good at it.

I dislike Rick Santorum and Romney equally. Will not vote for either one.

Me too pretty much...though if Santorum wins the primary haven’t decided if I’ll vote for him or not....he’s such a dang weak candidate and will be like obama...thinking he can be President and figuring out how to be that... while the nations burns.

I may do a write in for Newt just the same.

Hmmm...I think it’s almost safe to say Romney will not win either state.....step on it Newt, a tad more jet fuel!

Are the delagates awarded by county or congressional districts? One could win a larger percentage of the popular vote in one district and loose two others.

Remember all, these are open primaries. Romney and Santorum are getting Dem votes, Newt is not. Newt is actually doing quite well.

I can’t believe Ricky is doing well in Alabama either.

I knew he would win Alabama as Governor Huckabee won in 2008, but what surprises me is that he is winning in Mississippi. I thought for sure Newt would win MS. Surprises all around. A great night for conservatives for sure. It looks like Romney will finish 3rd in both states.

“A nice shot of Grey Goose in my Sweet Tea sounds GOOD.”

What is Grey Goose? Gator has many geese and he names them - is Grey Goose one of those? And, you say “shot” - Gator would not let you shoot one of his geese. In fact, he took one on vacation with him (it was a duck and I have pictures.)

nbc calls Alabama for Santorum...

Calling it early is a media tactic to discourage other voters from going to polls to vote for Newt....and that comes directly from them saying so! They do this when the race gets too close for their candidate.

Don’t you just despise how Michael Steele engineered this whole mess .. purposely? Holygod .. whattamoron exemplar.

Excellent point. And what's up w/ these R superdelegates? Were there R superdelegates in 2008? I don't recall any. (I hate the idea of superdelegates.)

I believe Santorum sponsored the Partial Birth Abortion Amendment. O voted against it. That will be played out repeatedly if he wins the nomination.

No, it is an irish thing. Not dramatic just adamant that Newt is the last great hope for America in my lifetime. I believe in him.

Have read RS and Romney's records and could not take one for the team and vote for either one of them. I will do a write in ..and vote on issues that effect my state.

They must have a secret truck of Romney ballots in Mississippi. Drudge made the call for Mitt.

Must be keeping them in Romney's secret underwear.

Seriously, CNN has the vote count at 79% and it's been that way for the past 10-15 minutes. GOP-e furiously adding Myth ballots to the mix.

I was shocked that they had Mitt leading in Alabama just a few days ago. I never expected Mitt to win either Bama or Miss. They are both way too conservative, Alabama especially! Santorum and Newt have been campaigning hard in Bama the last few days.

Newt believes in man-made global warming.

That's false. Newt has said repeatedly that we do not have the technology to determine that question.

It may be that Newt drops out tomorrow

That's a not going to happen....he already said no matter what the outcome he's staying in....and the tactic media is using now to call it for SAntorum is to keep Newt voters from going to the polls...they did the same thing in Florida.....Newt's up against the media push for Romney and Santorum because they know Obama can beat them both.

If the margins hold up for Santorum in MS and AL, it will be the evangelicals who provide the margin.

FoxNews forced to call Alabama for a guy who won’t buy too much ads from them, Santorum. Would love to see how much GOP E money was spent by Mittens.

CONGRATULATIONS TO RICK SANTORUM FOR APPARANTLY WINNING ALABAMA TONIGHT.

This is an open forum thread, with supporters here from various candidates.

Now, having said that, my wish is for RICK to kick it in big time and seize MISSISSIPPI tonight, too. I actually do hope for Gingrich to place second in both of these states as I truly, personally want Mitt Romney and the Establishment HUMILIATED with all the bucks they spent. Mitts backers are often Wall Street type/K Street type "investors". If their ROE is pissing back at them in the face, they may be more hesitant to open their wallets in the future, which will be good for Santorum (and Gingrich if he decides to stay in and fight).

Very close, might not make it in Miss. for Rick, but if so, WOW!! I hope to hear a great victory speech tonight, and my wishes out to the folks who's candidate did not snag first tonight. Eagles Wonderfully Up!

Not a lot of Santorum fans here...and I had to “get over”’some concerns myself...but I just have to add that Obamney CATEGORICALLY said NO to Santorum as Veep. Personally, anyone who is so despised by Myth has just been validated in my mind.

And if i have NO reservations about voting for Newt...l take the last TRUE conservative standing that can beat Obamney and deny the GOPe a “please Jeb, pretty please” convention.

The I WON’T VOTE FOR SANTORUM CROWD is going to ASSURE an Obama victory. Ask yourselves how he has gotten this far on basically o money?

I’ve been wondering what the Newt supporter official line would be now that Santorum leads him in hard delegates, soft delegates, vote count, number of states won, total placement, and in head-to-head comparisons.
