    JPtheBITCH saidWell, maybe. If Gingrich takes Georgia, and Santorum is supposed to take Tennessee and Oklahoma, it depends on what happens in two states in which there has been no polling yet. One of them is Alaska; I don't recall the other offhand. The only states he's a lock to win are Massachusetts (for some reason, he isn't really that popular there) and Vermont. Ohio may be at best a tossup, except that Santorum's people messed up their registrations and will be locked out of six counties representing around 1/3 of all delegates.

    Forget everything else: no one with that kind of disorganized campaign should be president.

    I think even many people who agree with Santorum's opinions have come to realize that his views, so stridently stated, have alienated many, and that a vote for Santorum would be a vote to reelect Obama. Even if he were to never discuss social issues again, videos exist over many years and the election would be made to be about Santorum and his comments versus the economy and Obama. I think there is a visceral dislike of politicians who are seen as moralizers, holier than thou, and sanctimonious.

    I'm hoping tomorrow will be a game-changer in favor of Romney. He seems to be gaining momentum, or at the least holding steady, and that continues to be the consistency he has had pretty much from the beginning.

    JPtheBITCH saidI don't think it matters. Mitt Romney's public image right now is somewhere between Snidely Whiplash, the Monopoly Millionaire, and John ("Flippity Flopper") Kerry.


    Yup. Pre-Citizens United it wouldn't even be a contest but Romney's Super-PACs will be out in full force spreading lies and disinformation.

    I’m so sick of the Romney robo calls that I don’t know who I’m voting for tomorrow.

    Aside from the robocalling, which candidate is more appealing to you? Which one would you like to see as the Republican nominee, and perhaps the President?

    It's one of many NON candidates. Jeb Bush would certainly be one.

    Of the current cast of 3 (Ron Paul doesn’t count in my book) that’s a tough question. I just got up a few seconds ago while I’m trying to get some work done for yet another robo call.

    I think when the general election campaign begins, there will be such a spotlight on Obama that Romney's will be seen as quite favorable. Stay tuned.

    I don't think you realize what people hear when Romney goes on about the wife's two Cadillacs, or calling his $375,000 speaking fees "chump change", or saying that he likes firing people. And talk about spotlights---every one of those comments and 2000 other tone-deaf things he's said---will be repeated just as often as anti-Obama ads.

    Your side is at another significant disadvantage, too: given the intensity of the Obama Derangement Syndrome warfare of the past three years, anyone inclined to think that he's a socialist, a Muslim, a Kenyan, a fascist, or a communist already thinks so.


    Yup. And the whole "he-man woman haters club" will also be brought up.

    Points have to be continually reinforced, which they will. Just as you saw the volatility in polls in the primaries, so will be the effect in the general election. The Obama team can focus on off-hand comments. The opposition can focus on broken promises, performance, etc.

    For example: Company with huge name and trademark recognition worldwide: Coke
    Company with a huge advertising budget: Coke

    They don't not advertise because everyone already knows Coke.

    Barring a surprise by Gingrich (as in actually winning enough delegates to *stall* Romney)... Romney should pull away with over 300 delegates out of the 419 available in Super Tuesday's primaries and caucuses.

    Of course, this is keeping in mind that Romney is the Establishment Choice™ ... and as such, has all the major money and all the big party players pulling out the stops to ensure he gets the 1,149 delegates needed to secure the GOP nomination and ensure an Obama re-election.

    I'm more or less convinced that most federal level elections are decided years in advance, and that negotiations for the 2016 POTUS have already been concluded by the various Illuminati factions. icon_razz.gif

    Thank you. I didn't know if they'd know what I meant if I just wrote in Bibi.

    However, I don't think you can take notes into the polling thingie.

    The perfect throwaway candidate.

    2016 will see a much stronger and more palatable candidate emerge, one who will capitalize on the lame-duck disaster that will be Obama's second term lurch to the extreme left to "Europeanize" the USA as much as four years and two months will allow for.

    The above being contingent on Senate and House electoral outcomes - and if the national GOP had a smart brain cell in common among their elites, they'd be plunking down money in toss-up contests and destabilizing Democratic primaries to maximize candidate damage (much as the Dems are seeing happen to the GOP's POTUS primaries).

    I may well be hunkered down in Japan by then, which will by comparison be a libertarian paradise by then to the USA. icon_razz.gif

    There is at least an even chance your scenario is invalid and that Obama will not have a second term.

    I seriously doubt this. Romney fails to galvanize the base (by whom I mean the NASCAR voters as well as the gun clubbers and any disillusioned Ron Paulists, beyond the country clubbers and billionaires set).

    Gringrich really only "shines" where the gut reaction against having a silly-magic-underwear-guy in the white house is an issue; and Santorum is polarizing on a level not likely seen in either of our lifetimes (but certainly not in mine).

    And Ron Paul, bless his dear heart, ain't got a real chance at the nomination, other than to win enough delegates so as to have a shot at slipping in a few of his points into the 2012-2016 RNC agenda. Although I think he could really give Obama a very close fight (much more do than any other "front runner") had he been given a fighting chance by the party machinery and the media.

    Romney will lose by at least 20 electoral votes, and very likely by a good 50 or so.

    Santorum would be a landslide loss of at least 100, and Gringrich would fall somewhere in between those two points.

    "by whom I mean the NASCAR voters as well as the gun clubbers "

    You talking about me? Nascar of only a certain vintage though.
