Alabama/Mississippi Results Thread
Looks Likely That Santorum Will Take AL and MS

Absurdly close in Alabama, and mixed results, but still close, narrowly in favor of Gingrich in Mississippi.

There's also some caucuses in Hawaii and Samoa.

GOPers in both states say the most important factor is who can beat Obama.

If the polls are accurate, we won't know who won until pretty late.

Drudge: Just a headline, no link: Drudge says Romney is set for a win in Mississippi, while Alabama is too tight to call.

**Links for Results**
ALABAMA**CAC calling for Santorum @ 9:38pm EST
MISSISSIPPI **CAC calling for Santorum @ 9:50pst EST (this may be retracted but looks solid for now)
HAWAII
AMERICAN SAMOA
CAC- I will be updating these and calling the states as we go, just like Super Marte. Currently have MS-->Romney, HI-->Romney, AS--->Romney, AL-->Tossup between Gingrich/Santorum

The only person who can't beat Obama is the guy named Barack Hussein Obama. Let's just hope he doesn't decide last minute to run as Baraka Soetoro or something like that.

Why does it matter if Mitt "wins" the state or not?

Posted by: Ducatisti at March 13, 2012 07:18 PM (mr/dg)

28 Well....

the exit polling for Ohio showed Romney winning by a much larger margin than he actually did iirc.


And remember how crappy exit polling was in 2000, so....

Most likely wins in the South because of the dynamic of Gingrich taking a greater percentage of the "not Romney" vote.

Gingrich is probably Romney's best strategy right now

Posted by: tasker at March 13, 2012 07:19 PM (XsnBd)

29 Tooth and nail every step of the way, I expect that won't change no matter what happens tonight. If Newt or Rick doubles up and scores both MS and AL, that would be huge. If Mitt gets one or the other, all remains the same but with more momentum. If Mitt wins neither, he's got some work to do going into April/May.

"It is a wise candidate who knows when to praise local cuisine."

And there's plenty to praise Down South: cathead biscuits, gravy (both sausage and redeye), hominy, cornbread, fried okra, sun tea,BBQ'd anything, greens cooked with a hamhock, fried fish and grits for breakfast...

I loved growing up in the South. Gentle people united with a love of food, family and good conversation seasonedwith a graceful lilt. Bluegrass music imported directly from Ireland and a love of the good Earth and the Bounty of God.

49 off topic, but commenters had been recommending Ron White, the comedian.

Frankly, I was biased. I don't like Larry the Cable Guy and they're in a show together so I made assumptions.

Steve_in_hb forced me to watch Ron White and man, was it funny. Dark, bitter guy. Not what I was expecting. Kind of had a real NYC comic vibe, with the bitterness.

So funny.

So thanks for that recommendation, and I'm sorry I doubted you.

84 Couple points.

1) Newt can't win, there is really no way he can get enough delegates to hit 1144, especially if not sweeping the southern states.

2) Santorum isn't mathematically eliminated yet, but he needs to win these things by a large margin to get delegates.

3) Romney competing in Al and MS (especially a win in MS) puts a huge crimp in the "he can't carry the South" meme.

4) Delegates are still proportional, so that helps Romney. He keeps adding to his count, even in states that should be hostile.

5) Next month, we move to winner take all states, especially Texas. Romney is going to dump buckets of money there, just like he did in Florida. Without some kind of momentum by a notRomney, he will take all of Texas delegates.

6) California will also be winner take all. Romney will be likely take the 5 largest states, 3 (or 4?) of which are winner take all.

7) It will be May before he locks it up, but Romney is very likely to get to 1144 and a first ballot nomination.

The only rational for Newt (and Santorum shortly) to stay in the race are to deny Romney a first ballot.

9) In 2008 the Democrat nomination was not wrapped up until June, it didn't hurt them.

92 Ok, tonight's episode, well I guess this one will have to be called "All Quiet on the Western Front"

Fairly uneventful day today, morning went pretty smoothly. At lunch I did see Che-boy and most of the che-bots, but Twilight Fan was noticeably absent.

They made sure to sit away from the vending machines this time, and for the most part avoided eye contact. I guess I would have to describe there mood as nervous.

Not much to report for the afternoon either, though apparently according to my supervisor at least there is a rumor floating around that Twilight Fan quit. I can't verify that at this point, she may have just called in sick and the rumor mill might be running rampant.

Wolverine was back today, so I got a chance to chat with him a bit after work. He's still sore but in good spirits.

Other than that I'm afraid not much of interest.

I actually work on what they call the support side, we handle requests that are - well, more complicated I guess would be the best way of explaining it.

When I was a teen, there was this guy in Maryland that moved his pit up from North Carolina. He was acknowledged to have the best BBQ in the state, but he wouldn't let the newspapers tell anyone where he was. He had all the customers he wanted.

He opened on Friday night and went until he sold out, usually early on Sunday.

It's actually fairly common, larger cities tend to go blue for.. well, for a variety of reasons really.

OK, Southern Story Time. Gather 'round, you little Morons.

I once worked atthe hospital in a famous Southern Football Town that Groucho Marx once joked about. I noticed that I never, ever saw any of the hospital honchos eat in the cafeteria with the rest of us in the brand new addition they had recently completed.

I happened to follow one of them one day into the old cafeteria in oneofthe old buildings where therewas a group of older women of color cooking. The smell of the food inthere was Heaven on Earth.

I ate in there from that day on, and was known by my first name to all those wonderful SouthernLadies.

Damned good times.

So they hit it big in their early 20s, develop a coke habit, and can't find work by their late 20s. But the uber-wealthy are still willing to pay them for sex. Which can keep their drug habit going

Not a good idea to run with ankle weights; the acceleration and deceleration at the end of a long lever is tough on the joints (although using just one pound might be OK).

Better to run with a weight on your back, or my favorite: running stadiums (up and down steps). The more steps, the better; running up and down one flight five times is MUCH easier than running up five flights once.

Sorry mon, I play bass. I love my three Fender Jazz Basses. It depends on what kind of music you play. A Strat is awesome but won't stay in tune, Les Pauls are great but only do one great tone imo. They do stay in tune on stage well. So many variables, try out as many as you can.

The election in 10 months away yet Romney is such a fragile candidate that we're being told thateveryone needs to shut and rally around him now, instead of a few months from now. Mitt can't take any scrutiny, or handle himself in a fight that is even close to fair.

Nope. They have Dan Boren, the ultimate blue-dog Democrat, as a Congressman in the eastern part of the state. But he's had enough and is retiring this year. It will finally be 100% GOP after 2012.

I always liked Boren. He was genuinely more conservative than a good 50% of the GOP caucus.

The largest numbers of union members lived in California (2.4 million) and New York (1.9 million). Over half of the 14.8 million union members in the U.S. lived in just seven states (California, 2.4 million; New York, 1.9 million; Illinois, 0.9 million; Pennsylvania, 0.8 million; Michigan 0.7 million; and New Jersey and Ohio, 0.6 million each), though these states accounted for only about one- third of wage and salary employment nationally.

436 Romney was just on CNN with wolfie. wolfie pointed out that he criticizes Rick Santorum for voting to raise the debt ceiling. He asked Mittens straight up if in a romney administration he would pledge not to raise the debt ceiling again. He danced around the issue giving the answer that he's given over and over about cut, cap and balance. wolfie persisted and asked the question directly again. End result, he would not say that he would not raise the debt ceiling. He said if he did he would make sure there are cuts. But, I've learned here and other places that that is BS as they never come across with the cuts. So he's no different than BO on this and when Santorum was in government it was years ago and it was the normal raising of the debt ceiling that they all voted for. Also, romney looks like an idiot when he says the other two are in the final throws of their campaign. Does he think the American people are stupid?

This is positively sick. There would be nothing "great" for the party about such painful, horse-trading negotiations taking place in public. It would be a disaster. It would vastly increase cynicism and disenchantment on all sides. We would limp into the general election mortally wounded.

It would depend on the split but that's how I see it. There is so much pent up energy on the Right that could be unleashed against Barry if the right candidate came out of the convention.

Not only could we get an enthusiastic consensus for a candidate but perhaps even a consensus on some core plank issues for the first term. God forbid, even real reforms that might either prevent Doom or turn it around faster.

You are an ignoramus who understands nothing about what a brokered convention would ACTUALLY DO. Brokered conventions DO NOT result in the sudden drafting of a new third party. They always and inevitably result in one of the current candidates being selected -- almost always the one with the most votes going into the brokering. The only thing that happens is that the chosen candidate has to make promises or choose certain ticket-mates in order to secure the delegates.

You seem to have this fantasy of a brokered convention -- in AUGUST, three months before the general election -- as a magical 'reset' button. It's not. All it means is that Romney would still be the nominee, but more wounded.

523 Michael Steele: My goal was a 'Brokered Convention'

http://tinyurl.com/85fevho

Moreover, the rules Steele bequeathed the party could yield an outcome in which Romney finishes with the most delegates, but not an outright majority, necessitating a brokered convention.“I wanted a brokered convention,” Steele tells me. “That was one of my goals.” Why in the world would a party chairman desire apparent turmoil? To create excitement and shake up the party, Steele explains. …Not all of the RNC officials at the time craved such creative disorder. Steele, recalls Doug Heye, then the RNC’s communications director, “said in a few interviews that as a political junkie, he’d like to see a brokered convention, and I counseled him that the party chairman may not want to advocate for chaos at a convention he has to manage.”

Just curious: are you actually thinking about this?

Do you understand the truly herculean amount of money and organizational effort required to put together a national general-election level campaign? "Enthusiasm" won't mean shit for dick in a general election. 'Enthusiasm' gets the same 30% of hardcore GOP voters to the polls who went in 2008 and 2004, and 2000, and 1996, etc.

It is literally ILLEGAL for a 'new' candidate to simply step into, say, Romney's organizational structure and take it over like a guy piloting a mecha-robot. He would have to build his own group. That simply cannot be done in three months, not in the modern era, not against Obama's big money, not while he's trying to define himself for the American voters.

You're a retard, I'm sorry to say, if you think a "fresh candidate" would be anything other than a 100% guaranteed death sentence due simply to the brute logistical realities of American politics. But I'm sorry: you want to hold on to your beautiful dream.

If Mitt managages 1/3 of the delegates from here on out, he isn't going to be the nominee, pretty simple. The GOP will realize he can't win enough of the GOP voters over and would be a drag all the way down the ticket. Mitt HAS to get a majority before the convention, and preferably by May, else the GOP will be shopping.

Posted by: doug at March 13, 2012 10:34 PM (gUGI6)

556 Sorry champ but the delegates are porportional. Santorum, Gingrich and Romney will each get about 1/3 of them. Tonight will only serve to keep rat face pissing me off for another month.
Posted by: robtr at March 13, 2012 10:31 PM (MtwBb)


I have to say, I'm really starting to loath the Revered Santorum with a passion. And once again, my contempt for so-called "values voters" only got amped up by their voting patterns. These people call Catholics "cultists," but then turn around and vote for Catechism Rick and Serial Cheater Newt?

Posted by: CoolCzech at March 13, 2012 10:34 PM (niZvt)

557 So who's responsible for releasing the "wrong" exit poll numbers? (I gather they were actually *mistaken* numbers, mixing up numbers for Romney with those for Santorum, e.g. among evangelicals.) The ones projecting a potential Romney victory-- setting up an expectation of a Romney win-- which would lead to a bigger Romney defeat/ disappointment narrative when the real numbers came in?

Is that CNN?

I'm sure that was just an accident.

568 Santorum is claiming victory but these "victories" don't help his chances at all. Romney is going to get about as many delegates as he will so the race is fundamentally unchanged. He needs to start beating Romney by enormous margins to stand a chance and this basically proves that is not going to happen.

If Mitt can get a near tie in the deep south in states he isn't even heavily contesting, I don't see any opening for Newt or Santorum. The assumption of course would be that ALL of Newt's supporters would flock to Santorum if he dropped but I don't believe that is the case.

I said what I said. I did not mention anyone's faith nor did I say BO has the south sewn up. I merely said to those thinking romney can't win in a general because of the south that his pick of McDonald, a very popular governor, would take care of that problem which is why mittens is calmly losing and not caring. I don't have a horse in this race, the more I know all of them, the more I don't like any of them. If the economy is bad and the president's numbers are way down and gas is $7 a gallon, godzilla would be elected on the republican ticket. But if everything appears fine, if the price of gas is down, is people are finding jobs, if the poll numbers rise to better levels, then the GOP needs a way stronger candidate than these three stooges to fire up the base and it's not sarah palin or jeb bush. But they better be thinking about it now.

So... what's been happening here?

Posted by: BurtTC at March 13, 2012 10:41 PM (Gc/Qi)

571 I don't get repubs, most of the voters in the primaries said electability is a key issue, that Romney is more electable, yet they don't vote for him. I don't get it at all, the jerk in the WH is beatable, my wife, a solid blue collar democrat will not vote for Barry,but she cannotstandSantorum eitherand will not vote for him, but just not vote at all. I don't get it this repub strategy at all.
Is the goaltomake sure Romney's not the nominee or to beat Obama? And the best way to do that is to make Obama the sole topic, Santorum hasso many things he's done and said in the past, he will spend most of the defending that,rather than going on the offense against Barry. Yea, Romney's like tofu, but when you have the stench of an administration, its better to have tofu to make that stench the sole focus. I'm really just lost on what the repub's strategy is. Santorum's notjust a social conservative, he's a big govt social conservative (terry schiavo), and he will alienate so many independents once all he's said in the past will be on the front pages of the NYT. He'll spend all his time just defending what's he's said. I really thought there was a good chance to beat Obama, Romney I thought was the most electable to do it(I liked Perry before, but he can't debate), looks like the most conservative, but unelectable person may be the nominee. Santorum will not be able to pivot to a more centerist position. And the MSM will be in full campaign mode for their Messaih man. I'm not following the delegate things, does this mean Santorum's now leading in delegates?

Don't be a drooling vegetable retard. Of COURSE Romney can win the South...in a general election. Shit, he fought Gingrich and Santorum to a practical standstill in a PRIMARY despite being a Satan-worshipper in the eyes of most of these states' voters.

Every single state in the Old Confederacy is guaranteed to go hardcore GOP in November with the exception of FL, VA, NC, which will be predictable swing states. If you disagree, please explain to me exactly the scenario under which Barack Obama wins AL, MS, GA, SC, TN, KY, LA, or AR.

I agree. If Newt supporters were primarily not-Romney voters-- i.e. primarily motivated to prevent Romney from getting the nomination-- most of them would have moved on to Santorum already. If they're still sticking with Newt (and haven't moved on to Santorum, the ABR with more viable numbers), it's for a reason.

If/ when they have to give up on Newt, IMO they're just as likely to make a pragmatic ABO (or ABS) choice and go with Romney, than make the ABR choice and go with Santorum.

I've worked or lived in every state from Florida to New York east of the Mississippi as well as in Arizona and Alaska.

It's a big country, and Mittens doesn't fit well in large parts of it.

Remember Vic's warning that Mittens had no chance in the southern states? Ignore those who know more than you at your own peril.

The media will make it their mission to assream anyone who challenges Ofucknozzle. The thing with elections is everything hinges on character. Santorum has been nothing if not consistent. I don't like him personally, but I hate Obama's policies and Romney, as well, that I can bring myself to support Santorum. I don't give a rip about "electability" if there are no clear choices between candidates. I am satisfied with how Santorum explained his support for Specter over Toomey and caliing Dems baby killers for a couple months is OK by me, too. We're right on the social issues, so give them hell.

Posted by: Tattoo De Plane at March 13, 2012 11:04 PM (i330i)

639 If the Republican Party nominates Santorum, then I am pretty sure it's a lock for Obama.

Santorum has said a lot of pretty stupid things over the years, a lot of it in the vaults of C-SPAN. He isn't particularly much of an economic conservative and was generally a friend of big government and big labor. He's got all the right social conservative things to say, but several months of vagina monologues isn't going to win the election.

We're toast if Santorum gets the nomination. The man is weak in every area except the religious right stuff.

Just look at how Obama's numbers have dropped after he decided to wage a sex/culture war.

He (Santorum) isn't particularly much of an economic conservative and was generally a friend of big government and big labor.

Crying Baby Jeebus -- haven't you read the thread here Romney Channels His Inner Tom Friedman?:

I got to go to the Olympic Games in China. It's pretty impressive over there how quickly they can build things, how productive they are as a society. You should see their airport compared to our airports, their highways, their train systems. They're moving quickly in part because the regulators see their job as encouraging private people. It's amazing. The head of Coca-Cola said the business environment is friendlier in China than in America. And that's because of the regulators. That's because of government.

And you low information Romneybots think Santorum is a "big government guy"?

The evidence that Democrats are voting in primaries to any greater extent than they have in the past is not in evidence. In fact, figures have those numbers actually down from previous presidential years. Of Democrats asked upon exit polling who they voted for, there is not the overwhelming vote for Santorum vs Romney that you seem to think there is. In other words, the facts do not support your assumptions.

As to whether or not I live in some deep red state. I live in Wisconsin, where we know what it takes to actually get conservative Republicans elected in a Democratic-leaning state. Case in point - Paul Ryan, Ron Johnson, Scott Walker.

684 I'm rooting Romney over Santorum, not (just) because I think he's the most electable. I do think he's the most electable, and that's a hell of a significant factor (the SCOAMF *must* go-- the consequences of a second O term would be catastrophic). But that's not the primary reason I'm rooting for him.

I support Romney because I think Romney would make a much better POTUS than Santorum. By far. Especially for the difficult, painstaking, politically arduous and tricky job of dealing with, rolling back, and counteracting Obama's harmful legacy. Fiery "true conservative" rhetoric may feel good, but it alone doesn't accomplish anything (and may be counterproductive when it counts: you don't want to scare and rile up Americans when you have to do painful surgery; a "boring" doctor-- who knows what he's doing-- is often best). You need someone who'll attend scrupulously to the task at hand, and has the chops to do it.

I'm reminded of the recent OOT bit re Ike's style. Give me "boring" ultra-competence, please. Give me the guy who has a talent for and obsession with looking at the numbers, the bottom line, making hard choices to salvage and turn around businesses and large organizations, the guy who knows private enterprise inside out, the guy with serious executive experience. The guy's who's a master at the art of the *possible*.

Not the guy who thinks the POTUS should be lecturing Americans about their sexual morality. Not the guy who has no private sector or executive experience, whatsoever. IMO Santorum is about as equipped to handle the Presidency-- at an extremely critical period, fiscally and otherwise-- as Obama in 2008. (If he's the nominee, I'd still vote for him over Obama. But feeling a great deal of anxiety, disgust, and despair.)

Beautifullly put. Like Romney's plan to cut programs that don't work - this is exactly what businesses do, and its a good first step. And its doable.
