Romney barely eked it out tonight. He let these upstarts run his campaign into the ground while he looks like a loser, and the press plays this out like he's a loser. This your front runner and he can't close....
If negative ads and $$$ win elections than Obama won in good part to that.

Enjoy President Obama's second term.

This whole show was a mess. Romney has been exposed once again when he needed to win big time, in prime time. This an embarrassment for the GOP elite...

Don't forget Romney was second in Georgia, Oklahoma and Tennessee. And Alaska starts coming in in about 15 minutes.

It's possible for Romney to win 6 of the 10 states and finish 2nd in all the rest but one.

All in all, a huge night for Mitt, but the DNC/MSM (they are the same thing) will try and spin this as a Santorum win. That's because their interest is in prolonging this as long as possible to help re-elect their failed President.

Absolutely. Just wait till morning and see all the "Santorum's back" talk on the shows. Santorum had a great night everything considered.

VA, MA, ID, VT do not count for much for various reasons. He won Ohio but it is so close there may have to be a recount. He lost TN. That would have sealed it for him. He got creamed in ND, GA, and OK and in rural areas of OH showing he has very limited appeal to the Republican base. He is a sad sack candidate.

I'm not interested in your assessment of subjective prejudicial data. Save it for the easily impressed.

Why are the standards so high for Romney? Why doesn't Santorum have to meet those same standards? I'd say, if Santorum thinks he is a frontrunner, then he embarrassed himself tonight. If a Romney is such a weak candiate, then that only means the others are worse.

So you believe $$$ and negative ads are a big impact when a guy you don't like does it, but when precious Obama does it, it has no influence. Okay....nice logic.

And conceded to the better candidate who went on to win the Presidency and hired her as Secretary of State. What an Excellent job folks say she's doing for the President and the Nation.

Looks like Santorum will finish under 20% in GA. No delegates for him there.
