Not bad, Romney did a rather good speech in my opinion, not that I agreed with him on his points. I think he stood his ground well.

Satorum's speech? Meh. Ron Paul? Meh.

I just now got home and tuned in to see the results, and .....they are definantly not what I was expecting. Santorum wins MO and Minn? I definantly did not expect that.

Looks like Romney isnt doing too amazing tonight either. *He just almost got glitter bombed again a few seconds ago on CNN*

I see Santorum, Paul, and Romney already gave their speeches, but what about Gingrich? Seems like Gingrich did the worst tonight.

I got distracted...I only saw Santorum's speech.

I really wanted to see Romney's...I'll have to catch it on youtube.

And now for some more results...Colorado is slowly trickling in...still early but Santorum may sweep tonight.


Colorado Results (30% reporting 11:39p)
Santorum 43.6%
Romney 29.9%
Gingrich 15.4%
Paul 12.8%


Minnesota Results (68% reporting 11:39p)
Santorum 45.3%
Paul 27.3%
Romney 17.4%
Gingrich 10.0%


Missouri Primary Results (99.6% reporting 11:38p)
Santorum 55.2%
Romney 25.3%

Results from my precinct in Colorado. (El Paso) The county was divided into a whole bunch of precincts with mine being apparently not so big. It was not a good voter turnout..here are the results, however.

Santorum: 18
Paul: 10
Gingrich: 4:
Romney: 2

I'm absolutely stunned right now. Utterly flabbergasted. Santorum's meteoric rise is impressive, but I think emblematic of the downright indecision pertaining to the GOP. In my opinion, this is a terrible night for the conservatives in America. Obama is, to me, on his way to a win in November. Just my opinion.

I am actually surprised by the very low voter turnout in all the contests. I know a lot of people aren't happy with the selection of candidates...but I guess I didn't realize it was as bad as it may be.

I just checked your county...doesn't look like any results have been reported yet.

More results coming in from Colorado. Romney has taken the lead...but not by much. And it looks like Ron Paul may make a run for third.

Still up in the air

Romney - 7,433 - 37%
Santorum - 7,081 - 35%
Gingrich - 2,764 - 14%
Paul - 2,668 - 13%

He might also incluede this in he's speech if he got the nomination:

"Concider rape a blessing."


Santorum declares that even if his own daughter were raped – a hypothetical scenario both men manage to discuss with remarkable calm – the Roman Catholic presidential candidate would maintain his adamantly pro-life position regarding abortion.

when discussing a hypothetical pregnancy by rape just moments later, he says: "I believe and I think that the right approach is to accept this horribly created, in the sense of rape, but nevertheless, in a very broken way, a gift of human life, and accept what God is giving to you." ("In the sense of rape." Deep breaths, Kate.) "Gift from God," "person under the law" – why quibble about semantic differences? The point is: Life! Glorious life! Santorum will defend it! Source




How can a person with such outragious beliefs even be concidered as a president, he's totaly loony and belong in an asylem for mentaly retarded persons.Incredible anyone would vote for him.

Hey Outcast, I like your thread. I was wondering, If Ron Paul supporters in those areas number in the thousands then why are the numbers coming out like this. The supporters for Ron Paul are extremely motivated and the numbers aren't adding up in my opinion. Ron should atleast be placing second. Whats your take?

Well Ron Paul took second in Minnesota. Paul supporters should really take this as a win. He beat his poll projections by 7-8 points and he defeated Romney and Gingrich in 1 of the 2 contests that counts.

And if you look at all the contests tonight and compare them to 2008, Ron Paul increased his support.

Minnesota he went from 9,852 in 2008 to 12,214 tonight (83% reporting...so more to come)

Missouri he went from 26,464 in 2008 to 30,641 tonight (99% reporting)

Colorado he went from 5,910 in 2008 to 4,404 tonight (only 70% reporting...so he should top 2008 after all are counted).


What type of numbers were you expecting to see tonight?

So...Colorado is looking like it will be a statistical tie. At this point I'm not sure if it matters if Romney wins or not...it's still bad for him that it is this close. Actually, it sounds like CNN is saying with the counties left...it's probably going to benefit Santorum.

Good night for Santorum though...I think Santorum needs the official "win" more than Romney so he can say he swept tonights contests.

Here are the latest results for Colorado, 70% reporting

Romney - 15,385 - 37%
Santorum - 15,252 - 37%
Gingrich - 5,397 - 13%
Paul - 4,904 - 12%

CNN is now talking to one of the Colorado GOP voting officials and they are saying Santorum has won with about 40% of the votes...

Dang, what a huge night for Santorum

ETA - It was the GOP chair they were talking to

Unbelievable.

I can't decide which is a bigger story...Santorum's wins or Romney's loses.


And the GOP circus continues it's tour. Is it anyones game now...or is Romney still the front runner???

That was interesting, hahaha. CNN must be lagging they only had 75% while Colorado GOP chair already reported 96%...This is really becoming interesting ever since the voter fraud accusations it seems like they are keeping things more low key...

I have no idea what to think. Unbelievable for me to.

Gingrich did absolutely horrible tonight, and Romney did pretty horrible horrible to. It's anyones game at the moment Im guessing.

*Someone on CNN just said the Romney bandwagon just hit the ditch now. This race is going to be going on a heck of a lot longer than I originally thought. I really do not have any idea what the next few weeks will be like

ETA - I just gotta say....Santorum??? Really? He sweeps tonight?.... Santorum? I dont know a single person that thinks this guy is appealing in any way!

Yeah...I admit too...I didn't think something like this would happen. I thought Romney had it pretty much locked up. He isn't out of it by any means...but it is a huge set back.

Gingrich, he was the invisible man tonight...the only reason people aren't focused on how poorly he did is because Romney just lost three contests to Santorum and came in third behind Ron Paul in MN.


Ron Paul supporters...you should be feeling good about tonight. The primary season has just been extended, Paul still doesn't have a win...but he got a huge second tonight in MN. Plus, the race will now stay as a four many race...which in my opinion is Paul's best chance.

I thought Romney was going to do well to. I was expecting Gingrich to do better to. I also think Gingrich's terrible showing isnt making too much news yet is because of Romneys terrible showing tonight.

I do support Paul and am pretty happy about his showing in Minn. (I was born there), but I really thought he would of done better in the other states. I think he will do well in Maine on the 11th.

This is the first time Ive watched a primary/caucus season, and I have to say, it's pretty exciting.

Projected Delegate pickup from tonight according to CNN.

Santorum - 11 delegates (6 from MN and 5 from CO)
Romney - 6 delegates (2 from MN and 4 from CO)
Paul - 4 delegates (3 from MN and 1 from CO)
Gingrich - 2 delegates (0 from MN and 2 from CO)


But we all know these are just "projectected estimates". The fact is they were all non-binding tonight and no delegates were realy awarded.
