Hey at least you chose to recognize that Ron Paul was still, in fact, a candidate.

That really pisses me off when you hear three names. Just the other day, I can't remember who it was on MSNBC, was talking about how Mitt Romney automatically won Virginia because "no other candidate was present on the ballot". He had to be corrected by Eric Cantor, who just endorsed Mitt Romney.

It's gotten to a point where I wonder why they continue to try and hush Ron Paul when he already has no chance at winning the bid.

Ask Ron Paul how easy it is to use deal with insurance companies after something like a tornado or flood. They look for every loophole they can to get out of paying you.
Ron Paul's point would probably be legitimate if any only if insurance companies had an incentive to be honest in their dealings with their client, through outlining clearly exactly what is covered, and sticking to that. In a competitive market, theoretically there should be such an incentive, but insurance (of all forms) seems to be an unregulated oligopoly in that regard.

Ron Paul has a decent shot in Alaska

these elections are for delagates, and most of these states are porpotional, not winner take all, like in November.

Romney will win the most, Santorum will come in second, Gingrich a more distant third.

A bad day for Mitt Romney is a good day for the rest of the world.

Yeah, I would think that the Romney camp can't be too happy right now. I think he'll still win the nomination, bit still....

If Gingrich and Paul weren't in the race Santorum probably would have
blown out Romney here in Ohio.

If Santorum wins Ohio definitely, it's one step closer to a brokered convention.

Looking like Romney's lead is going to hold here in OH, but Santorum has had a pretty good night, and there are reports now that his camp is going to start putting pressure on Gingrich to get out, so that Santorum will have a potential path to the nomination.

looks like Mitt is now leading, but it's close.

like, after a month where Rick Santorum basically said that birth control is bad Romney can still barely beat him?

so weird.

It'd be a shame to see Gingrich booted out. That'd pretty much ruin the race and all chances of the party not deciding on a candidate due to majority delegates.

I think Gingrich knows that, too.

Gingrich absolutely wont quit,
there are some Southern primaries coming up where he could pull off some wins.
