Go back to school, I have one too.

Few people knew Santorum other than the "true conservative"...all the ads did was make them realize Santorum is a nut. Then Santorum opened his mouth some. All the ads did was make people realize who Santorum was it would have came out anyways.

Read Freakonomics they discuss a few studies in it.

Gingrich blanketed GA with ads. He outspent everyone there to win his own home state... no different.
I am still hearing Gingrish negative attack ads on Romney here in Michigan.

I didn't care for the GOP much before, but I'm liking them less and less by the day.


There is a crazy factor in the party now that has to be considered...very unfortunate.

The one nice thing about this is that the Maryland primary on April 3rd might actually matter. My GOP vote in Maryland might matter! That would be a switch.

Don't think Romney will be able to pull it out.

Fox just said Romney is leading with 86% of the vote in. Google map is LATE.

No. I don't need your reference to understand spending in elections.

What, are you receiving royalties promoting the book. Give it a rest.
