Super Tuesday open thread

March 5, 2012

17.9 percent of the Republican delegates will be allotted tomorrow, in 10 states. The latest polls are here. Click Replies and discuss.

UPDATE: Nate Silver says Romney is headed for a clear win:

Adding up the projections from the ten states, I show Mr. Romney getting 217 delegates, or almost exactly half of the total available. Mr. Santorum would get 107 delegates by these projections — about a quarter of the total — with Mr. Gingrich getting 61 and Mr. Paul 25.

    What do you call a blogger who thinks Sandra Fluke spends $1,000 on condoms every year?

    Extremely stupid. Probably a virgin or a homosexual. A repressed mommy’s boy whose afraid of women.

    You do have to tip your hat to the Willard campaign, and all their Goldman Sachs cash. It’s worked wonders for them. They managed to pay off enough RINOs to move up the Michigan and Florida primaries, to prop up this lying progressive crapweasel early on in the process.

    And for Super Tuesday, they managed to push through restrictive primary rules in Virginia, and keep a bunch of their opposition off the ballot, and partially succeeded in doing the very same thing in Ohio . Amazing what tons of Goldman Sachs’ cash and lawyers can do for you, huh?

    And Super Tuesday is anchored by Taxachusetts and communist Vermont, which are both progressive crapweasel country. Then there’s Idaho, which provides a massive Mormon contingent, all Willardian of course.

    Just a brilliant job dragging this lying progressive crapweasel along. Just brilliant. This crapweasel wouldn’t have a prayer in a stand up fight, but the RINOs have managed to position him into a lead, and blowtorch the opposition down wherever necessary, with Goldman Sachs-paid negative advertising.

    Just brilliant execution.

    Unfortunately, and no matter how many RINO hearts are set aflutter by this lying progressive’s nomination, we conservatives are going to have to destroy this crapweasel. Either in the primary or in November. Your choice, RINOs.

    Un-RINO, the ploy in Virginia might backfire. If the anti-ROmney guys all voted for Ron Paul, then the proportional assigning of delegates state of Virginia would give Mitt Romney ZERO delegates.

    At least we get to watch a failed Democrat controlled state crumble before America.

    Love it. Faster, please.

    The problem with kalifornicate is, that the kenyan fraud will bail them out with our money, thereby assuring their electoral votes come November.The demokrat protection racket is alive and well.

    I hope he does do that.

    Let’ get the ball rolling.

    Well, congrats Stupid Party.

    You are if the polls are correct about to elect in Ohio a progressive to face a progressive. Because you think the LEAST electable person is the most electable.

    You are about to give the nomination to a person who not only fathered Obamacare, but who ALSO urged Obama to apply a national one size fits all policy to Obamacare in an Op-ed and on TV. This is a deal breaking sin for anyone even remotely considering themselves to be a Republican or conservative.

    Mitt cannot argue with Obama on the seminal issue of our time, AND the economy is improving, removing the rationale for a Romney candidacy, altogether.

    Romney used the states rights 10th amendment defense on his choice to foist gov run healthcare on MA. He said Obamacare was wrong for being one size fits all. Then he urged Obama to adopt the mandate, the core unconstitutional aspect of it, in the president’s plan, not once, but twice.

    But, oh, yeah, he’s most electable. So that does not matter.

    Thanks, Stupid Party.

    Good afternoon, Mr Roboto.

  11. Nate Silver needs to get real with the data. on March 5, 2012 at 10:14 am

    actual delegate counts have Ron Paul in 2nd place.

  14. Bibi sticks up for Israeli sovereignty ... tells Obama to stick it! on March 5, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Bibi proclaims Israel a soveriegn state, not an American colony. Harkens back to the day in the early 80’s when they bombed Israel, and most of Congress were cajoled to submit a motion to condemn Israel’s actions … the minority, including a congressman from Texas who is currently running for President, were against this motion and defended Israel’s soveriegnty to take such action in its own national interest. So much for the (false) claims that Mr. Paul is anti-Israel (unless you have a self interest in foreign aid flowing to Israel and Arab nations in the MidEast).

    Santorum is just incompetetant. He is also possibly going to lose Tennessee Tuesday.

  16. Gerry Owen on March 5, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Santorum is frankly running out of time.

    He keeps avoiding addressing issues that are central and critical to our nation- The Deficit, the Debt, the economy (and the gas prices), unemployment, and over regualtion.

    He prefers to run on social issues. Those are not critical. I appreciate his stance- but if my house is getting eaten by termites do I pick the contractor who says he has a plan to kill them and rebuild the structure, or the guy who tells me how can get my home theatre system to work better?

    Santorum needs to actually campaign on the issues that are of immediate concern. He needs to actually address them, and put forth plans and solutions.

    Sure, it is nice and wonderful you are for strengthing families, but how does that lower gas prices?
    I agree home schooling is an excellent option if done right, but what is your plan for reducing uneployment?…or Is staying home and teaching the kids your actual answer to uneployment?

    We are broke. Stopping funding for left wing Planned Parenthood and zeroing out anti family government programs is a moral must. What about the rest of the astronomical deficit? What changes will you make? If you actually have a plan, Rick- WHY ARE WE NOT Hearing about it?

    Seriously, I like this guy- I have long been a fan. But his campaign and campaign rhetoric is so tone deaf and irrelevant to the issues of the day, I wonder how he ever won office in the first place.

    He really, really needs to get his campaign on track. I’m not suggesting he hide his views and values- just not allow the discussions to continually swirl around them. There are bigger issues that need addressing.

  17. Evan3457 on March 5, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    Oh, yay! More victories for Romney. Kudos to you, our elite Republican overloads.
    Thanks for stuffing Romney down our throats. Yum, yum, yum.

  18. Some Mormons get it ... on March 5, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    those in the Mormon church who have heard the message of Ezra Taft Benson know that Ezra wouldn’t support the Goldman-Sachs backed Mitt Romney!

  19. MikeN on March 6, 2012 at 3:00 am

    Why does Idaho have so many delegates? Is there a bonus for voting Republican?

    As if any of your flailing about is going to advance your candidate

  21. Lyle on March 6, 2012 at 6:47 am

    I have my doubts poli knows much about the female reproductive system, but I think he has today’s primary’s about right, Romney shoul wrap-up the nomination today, or get very close.

    It will be interesting to see who he picks as a running mate, maybe Huckabee, or perhaps Santorum, he is going to need someone that will excite evangelicals, and if he is smart he will get the debate coach he fired back before the debates with Obama.

  22. Paul B on March 6, 2012 at 9:03 am

    Mike N. I think you get rewarded for voting Republican. That is why Idaho has almost as many delegates as my home state of Washington.

  23. MikeN on March 6, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Well if Romney is the nominee I won’t be rewarded. I’ve made up my mind I am not voting for Romney in a general election. His stealing the delegate from Santorum in Michigan seals it, he is too much like Obama.

  24. anonymous un-RINO on March 7, 2012 at 3:14 am

    Yeah, I’m betting Willard would lose Michigan by 20 points. You cannot imagine the outrage here over that delegate scam. I could see tens of thousands of R voters here walking away from that loser in November. He blowtorched the state, robocalled 24/7, bought every RINO in sight… and then stole that delegate to top it all off.
