Not at all. Ohio is the big prize between Santorum and Romney.

Remember, Santorum was up big just a week ago and he has some problems with the delegates. He can win the popular vote and lose delegates because he screwed up.

Yes, he'll win more delegates than Santorum.

Big urban counties haven't reported in, that's why they aren't calling it.

Looks like turnout will surpass 2008.

If Santorum wins Ohio along with TN he will win the night and Romney's campaign will be on life support. The Republicans will be in panic mode.

If Santorum wins OHIO, Romney has critical issues in key demographics in his quest to win the candidacy.

Yes, but Todd could have been at the precinct when the footage of voters was shot and is part of the "green screen movie".

I'm no Palin fan either, but I'm not dissing HER at all. I am just noticing more and more phony looking stuff on news videos. Several times I have questioned whether the "live" reporter in Timbuktu isn't really in a studio with a phony background running (as seen with your local weather man). In other words, the way it looked Sarah might have been in Arizona in front of a screen for all I know.

We need to be more discerning about what we are watching. We need to realize that we can focus on a reporter or interviewee and not notice the background. The media can show us whatever they want, make a small crowd look big or a big crowd look small, show old video with a new story, stock photos/videos, selected and cropped photos and video, computer graphic images inserted, etc. that paint a visual picture- and we buy it totally.

Although this "aside" is about a Super Tuesday interview, I will veer closer to the topic by saying it is a very interesting night. It appears Romney is not going to win the nomination easily- not that I care who wins. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, I'm stuck in the middle with nobody to vote for in November. What a mess.

CNN changed the exit poll -- added more polling #s and now have Romney winning by just 1% in Ohio.

Santorum was leading in Ohio by 17 points just a week ago. This was Santorum's state to lose.

Romney won Catholics and tied Rick with Protestants. Interesting.

Then I suppose you didn't notice Palin and Todd lightly embrace at the end? Did you watch the entire interview?
