You should stick to military issues only, as sometimes you sound reasonably well versed; politics on the other hand is not your bag.

But it is your bag?

That's debatable.

Just because he prefers another candidate doesn't mean his thoughts are invalidated.

Just because you like Romney doesn't make yours validated, either.

So Romney is really your man? In light of the fact that in the latest poll of a head to head match up with Hillary Clinton, Romney only gets 40% of the vote compared to Clintons 58%, what keeps you in his camp?

For a minute there

I thought they put Reagan's picture on Drudge


anyways,

Mitt lives to die another day

he will not do well in SC at all

has a shot in FL,
a silver could do

he has a very good shot for a gold in NV


it will be next to impossible for him to capture the nomination without any real wins out of the "Southern strategy" states.

That's quite possible. I hadn't thought of that.

They were reporting tonight that the Huckabee camp was secretly hoping Romney would win, so that McCain wouldn't become unstoppable. But that doesn't make sense to me. With a Romney victory, he might take away votes from Huckabee and help McCain win, like you said. If McCain had won Michigan, some of Romney's votes (realizing that their candidate is finished) may have switched over to Huckabee, or at the very least, Huckabee wouldn't have lost any votes. But now I think he may have. If McCain had won, it basically would have been a 2-person race in SC. But now, McCain will still be a threat, with Romney and Thompson breathing down Huck's neck.

So if I was Huck, I'd have been praying for a Romney defeat.

it's early yet.

mitt has the best managerial skills, is ethical and has the best exectutive experience.

john mc cain panders to the left a little too much. i liked huck until i watched him become disingenious in interviews and found out how soft he is on law and order.

fred altho one of the purest conservatives cannot connect w the masses.

rudy is a decent choice but has too much personal baggage.

be prepared for a brokered GOP convention.

Some selected exit poll data from CNN. (Note that in Michigan you don't have to be registered with a party to vote in its primary.) <5% votes not included.


Repubs (39% Romney, 30% McCain, 16% Huckabee, 6% Paul with 95% of precincts reporting): --based on 1362 respondents

--44% female (39% Romney, 29% McCain, 18% Huckabee, 5% Paul)
--56% male (36% Romney, 31% McCain, 15% Huckabee, 9% Paul)

--13% aged 18-29 (30% Romney, 27% McCain, 19% Huckabee)
--24% aged 30-44 (38% Romney, 26% McC, 17% Huck, 8% Paul, 6% Rudy)
--37% aged 45-59 (39% Romney, 28% McC, 16% Huck, 5% Paul, 6% Thompson)

--at least some college 81% (39% Rom, 30% McC, 15% Huck, 8% Paul)
--no college 19% (33% Rom, 29% McC, 21% Huck, 5% Thompson)

-- <$50,00 income 34% (31% Rom, 30% McC, 18% Huck, 8% Paul)
-- $50,000+ income 66% (40% Rom, 31% McC, 15% Huck, 7% Paul)

--registered Repubs 68% (41% Rom, 27% McC, 17% Huck, 5% Paul, 5% Thompson)
--independents 25% (29% Rom, 35% McC, 15% Huck, 13% Paul)
--registered Dems 7% (33% Rom, 41% McCain, 14% Huck, 7% Paul)

--white 96% (38% Rom, 29% McC, 16% Huck, 7% Paul)



Dems (55% Clinton, 40% "uncommitted" with 95% of precincts reporting): --based on 997 respondents

--57% female (60% Clinton, 36% "uncommitted")
--43% male (51% Clinton, 43% "uncommitted," 5% Kucinich)

--26% aged 30-44 (49% Clinton, 47% uncommitted)
--32% aged 45-59 (59% Clinton, 34% uncommitted, 5% Kucinich)
--26% aged 60+ (68% Clinton, 31% uncommitted)

--at least some college 75% (49% Clinton, 45% uncommitted, 5% Kucinich)
--no college 25% (73% Clinton, 25% uncommitted)

-- <$50,00 income 46% (Clinton 62%, uncommitted 33%)
-- $50,000+ income 54% (Clinton 50%, uncommitted 46%)

--registered Dems 79% (60% Clinton, 36% uncommitted)

--white 72% (63% Clinton, 31% uncommitted, 5% Kucinich)
--black 23% (30% Clinton, 68% uncommitted)

--46% would have voted Clinton if all names were on the ballot.
--35% would have voted Obama if all names were on the ballot.
--12% would have voted Edwards if all names were on the ballot.
