That's great! Some polls for a few other states should be coming out after midnight.

Excellent. I really like hearing that he is up so much among people who have decided within the past few days. That makes me think that those who are still undecided will be more likely to vote for Romney than Santorum.

Excellent news for Romney! Santorum lasted far less time than any of his predecessors in the 'anti-Romney' light. If he loses Ohio, he is done. He will still probably win Oklahoma and maybe Tennessee, but his margins might be small and Romney will still win delegates.

Truth be told, I won't mourn the downfall of Frothy in the overall scheme of things -- if he really is down and out that is. There have been a lot of unexpected upsurges for a lot of the candidates that seemed to come out of nowhere. It does seem that the ultra-Conservative Coup D'état against Romney is running out of steam. It's aggravating that neither Huntsman nor Paul saw any such upsurge in support. Both represented the original concept of the Tea Party very well and it is the Tea Party movement that seems to have been driving the GOP to redefine itself lately. But I think radical social conservatism took over the redirection of the GOP far too much.

After Huntsman dropped out, I was hoping it would narrow down to a two horse race between Paul and Romney. I mean, how on earth do guys like Gingrich and Santorum get a sudden groundswell of voter support and not Paul?

End of the day, the voters are the ones deciding. It is the voters that ignored the best candidates while flocking to absolutely terrible ones. Romney is at least better than Santorum and better than Gingrich by miles. But it has been the voters that have shut out the strongest alternatives.

I do wish that more polls would come out already. What does North Dakota look like? Alaska? Idaho?

It has at least been a lot of fun watching the so-called Conservative base running from one bad apple to another, only to realize that each was an absolutely horrible choice. "Brainless sheeple" is pretty accurate. Why would you run blindly to a new candidate without doing any research at all??

More and more polls show that Super Tuesday may be the nail in the coffin for Santorum and Newt.

Looks like Romney has closed the gap to a tossup in Tennessee too, he was down double digits only a week ago. Seems like Oklahoma and Georgia are the only states he doesn't have much of a shot at.

In 2008, Huckabee won Georgia but McCain won Oklahoma. I am a little surprised at the Oklahoma numbers for Santorum, but then again there hasn't been a poll since 2/21 at the peak of the 'Santorum Surge'. His margins may be reduced enough in Oklahoma so that Romney still does well there.

Romney is running a dishonest campaign. I am so tired of his lies.
