Re: US presidential election 2012

Santorum has won Tennessee, Oklahoma and is leading Ohio and North Dakota.

Romney has won Virginia, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Gingrich has won Georgia with 48% of the vote to 23% for Romney and 21% for Santorum.

If these results hold up, you'd have to venture it's pretty much back to square one. Santorum would still be the conservatives' candidate. Romney would still be in the position of having to defend why he cannot win Southern states and why he cannot win with blue collar, working class, conservative voters on any consistent basis. Gingrich would be able to tout himself as the anti-Romney candidate and set himself to clean up the upcoming primaries throughout the South.

Hopefully Rick wins Ohio!!!

Don't know why I'm even wasting my time with this.
ron paul fans are an intriguing lot.

it sure takes a pretty high degree of disconnection from reality to think that he'd do a good job running a country. then again, looking at the other candidates one kind of gets the point of the depressing state of affairs of the american political spectrum...

in any case, i guess that most yanks see a guy like paul and think to themselves "yeah, interesting fella" because he kind of evokes the principles of opportunities and free market most white americans are so fond of (in theory of course). then again, when it comes to think about him seriously, the vote por paul is more like "thanks but no thanks". as whacky as some americans are, they're still too conservative to go for paul.

i even think the racism thing isn't that big of a deal for most yanks. after all, who hasn't said something racist at least once, right?? and if he can get the gvt to stop drilling my pockets avoid financing the poorest (most of them blacks and latinos anyway), i'll be able to buy more i pods and a get a bigger mortage. only then i'll be happy... or maybe only happier.. who knows?

He gets an A+ for running his personal estate.
He gets an A+ for running a business.
He gets an A for running Massachussets (6th in the nation in personal income).

What makes you think he could not transfer that management skill to a country?

One small step for Rainy, one giant leap for libertarianism. This might be the greatest day of my life.

We're getting there, we're getting there. Slowly but surely, if we work together, we can bring him back from the dark side. I know there's good in him, I can feel it. The emperor hasn't driven it from him fully.

Re: US presidential election 2012

All Super Tuesday showed is that the Republicans are as divided as ever.

Romney of course will end up as the nominee.

Improved everywhere from 2008, except stupid Idaho. Definitely the biggest blow of the night. In 21 states, that's the first time he's gone backwards. Alaska was disappointing too.

Media are overplaying the importance of "getting behind one candidate". In 2008 the Democrats were more divided than the Republicans.

Obama is the favourite but whoever gets nominated will run him close.

Re: US presidential election 2012

In 2008 people were actually excited about Barack and Hillary. There was enthusiasm in the air regarding both, both were seen as change candidates, things were going to get better with them at the helm. That isn't the same in 2012. Mitt Romney will win by DEFAULT only but what's clear is that he isn't really well received. Even in Ohio, a majority of Republican voters said that Romney doesn't share their values. He's only going to be the nominee because he's not completely batshit crazy like Santorum and Gingrich.

And since both Rick and Newt has something to hang their hats on from Super Tuesday, this charade will last all the way through to the convention. Barack is so far in the drivers seat right now, especially if the housing numbers and overall economy continue improving. Republicans could have attacked Barack on the soaring gas prices but since most of them are in bed with the big oil corporations who are shitting people out of money, they don't even have that to run on

Unless the economy takes a drastic step in the wrong direction, the negativity surrounding the entire Republican nomination process, low voter turnouts, lack of credibility and sincerity and overall slickster-vibe that most see out of Romney, and the belief from most Republicans that Romney isn't a real conservative all mean whoever the Romney is a severe underdog come November.

Re: US presidential election 2012

I know. I so much wish he would do it, but he won't because he has an agenda, which is to sabotage the Republican party. Also, Southern and Midwestern states are coming up. This is Newt's territory coming up now and if he cleans house, he can re-position himself as the anti-Romney candidate. Newt is the true wildcard here because he's a horrible person, genuinely. And with the way the Republican base has gone out of their way to shove Newt out of the way, be sure he is going to do everything he can to give them a taste of their own medicine.
