And that's different HOW - from spending it elsewhere?
What? Do you somehow think that workers in the media somehow don't SPEND their paychecks? That they don't buy food, and clothing and furniture and cars and trucks, etc, etc, etc. That they don't eat out at restaurants and fast food joints? That they don't go to the movies? Or go to ball games? Or bowling? Or musuems or concerts - just like ANYONE ELSE?

Four more states rejected the former "vulture capitalist", eh

LOL

And he barely hung on to win Ohio even tho he had HUGE advantages over a rag-tag Santorum operation in that state.

Can't wait to see him get creamed in Alabama and Mississippi...

Virginians cast GOP primary ballots - Virginia Politics - The Washington Post

There were also interviews with Republicans who voted for Paul only as a protest, since he was the only "non-Romney" running in Virginia - not because they were true Ron Paul supporters.

The turnout in Virginia was in sharp contrast to 2008.

Interesting that in the district that includes McLean, one of the wealthiest areas of Virginia where there are probably more Republicans than in some of the other close-to-DC Virginia suburbs, only 30 of 3,000 registered voters had gone to the polls by 10 AM. Turnout by 1 PM for all of Fairfax County was only 1 percent.

Romney wins Virginia over Paul in low turnout contest with only 2 candidates on GOP ballot - The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/in-day-of-big-primaries-va-ballot-pairing-romney-paul-generates-little-enthusiasm-from-gop/2012/03/06/gIQA7YbFuR_story.html - broken link)

Here are the 3pm turnout rates for parts of southwest VA, very religious and conservative part of the state:

  • Roanoke City - 1.8%
  • Roanoke Co. - 3.2%
  • Mongomery Co. - 2.4%
  • Danville - 3.2%
Which is why I think Romney could seriously lose NC and VA on election day. Losing both would kill all shots for him winning the presidency.

He has a very good chance of winning Alabama and has been polling well there in the last few weeks. Mississippi remains to be seen, but I wouldn't count that out either. They are mainly concerned with electability and the economy.


As far as Ohio, Romney came back to win that against all odds. He was down by double digits just two weeks before. What people intentionally overlook is that Santorum and Gingrich have all of the right wing media working for them 24/7 at no expense to them. They are both on Fox News every day of the week. They have Hannity, Rush, Levin, and Ingraham, Malkin, Eric Erickson dogging Romney daily and touting them. That is power media to the right wing voters who hang on every word they say.

Romney is a very strong candidate to still be winning against all of these forces. Most candidates wouldn't have made it this far.
