I'd call winning that reality-challenged subset of the Alabama electorate a dubious prize indeed!
LOL! They've got some winners down south don't they?

Why we seeing these post every day?

Not too long ago when the race become.

If Romney seal the deal -

Iowa
NH
SC
FL

each every race, and still doing the same lie over and over again. Maybe when we get to Cali, NY, NJ and Romeny "will" seal the deal.

Exactly! Because every time Romney does seal the deal, the media tells the people what a weak frontrunner he is instead. The media will make up a story about how "Florida will seal the deal, Ohio will seal the deal, MS/AL will seal the deal" hoping that Romney will lose. Then when he doesn't, they have to backtrack. If Romney does win MS and/or AL, I would love to see how the media tells us what a bad candidate Mitt Romney is. No doubt they will still find a way.

I could see him winning those states, Mitt has almost had Homer Simpson style amazing luck with getting two conservatives splitting the vote so he can consistently win with under 50% of the vote. Even if he narrowly loses, he's getting delegates and it's pretty much impossible for someone other than Romney to beat him outright now.

same as those who say, Paul will do this or that, Paul is surging, Paul has it wrapped up or Oh No, Paul got screwed again, it was fixed!!! Most of us want to think if our guy or gal does well it will be all over. For me, it doesn't make much difference how my guy does, it is all over.

nmnita. no one said it would be easy now imo people should stop trolling.

you all realize there are fraud but regardless you all agree for the most part that shenanigans are being perpetrated already so that is an established fact.

the fact that you are complaining about people pointing that out is well hypocritical.
yes they may have pointed it out too many times for your likely but that does not make it not true.

at least we have principles while you are all just wanting obama out of the white house regardless of whom you vote for.

I bet you would elect darth vader of star wars to lead the country instead if it would get you your way.

so please tell us what principles you stand for instead of telling people they cannot win anything etc etc.

justify yourself in a debate instead tyvm.

I guess getting the most votes and winning the state is what will make headlines. Delegate wise nothing much will change.
Mississippi is pure district proportioned, so in each district its almost assured Romney, Newt and Santorum will get 1 delegate each. Alabama is 2 delegates for each Congressional district winner, 1 for who is 2nd, 0 for someone in 3rd.

Don't forget there is a proportional for the statewide level as well. You make a point that these guys will roughly get a third each. However, in regards to a popular vote a win is a win and that is what the media and the public at large wants to see. Who wins the popular vote. Don't underestimate the momentum that can happen from winning the popular vote.

IF, IF Romney were to win Mississippi (40) and Alabama (50)...I will guarantee the momentum change will be huge for Romney and it will be basically over. Yes even with only a third or so of the delegates. There would be a surge to Romney to end it.

Don't forget there is also Hawaii (20) up for grabs as well as Samoa (9). I think Romney wins more delegates again tomorrow.
