And Focus completely on Barack Obama.

Mitt Romney is to make a semi-official declaration of victory in the Republican presidential nomination race, accelerating the preparations for his battle against Barack Obama for the White House.

It's only just begun. He can make all the speeches he wants to, but unless he gets to the magic number of delegates, we'll see you on Tampa.

I'm sorry but one candidate saying it's over means nothing to me. I hope that we still have enough of a electoral system that just saying your the winner is not good enough....yet

RON PAUL 2012!!!!!

I'm waiting for Ron Paul to announce that he's running as an Independant.

That will split the Republican vote, and almost assure Obama a victory.

Didn't Mittens try and declare victory back in February?

I think it's safe to give Romney NY, Conn, Penn. and RI. Del? Up in the air. All totaled that's 205 cand., excepting Del.'s 17. Add that to his total to date and he's got 903. Just over 200 shy of the mark he needs with 14 states to go. And he could get those from just 2 states. Cali, which he should win and Utah which he will win. Stick a fork in it. It's done.

In the USA, you have the choice between Barrack, Mitt, Newt.

Meanwhile, the guy with a normal, every day name gets pushed to the sidelines.

Ron Paul 2012.

Even if it is futile, I will be participating in the Rhode Island Primary tonight, and my vote will certainly not be for Mitt. My vote was cast a long time ago to a man with integrity.

For those of you who say "Paul won't win so I'm voting for XYZ" Of course he won't win if nobody votes for him.

Do not vote for the 'lesser of two evils', because when you do, evil still wins.

Stand for what you know and know for what you stand.

Do not forget the primaries are beauty contests and the delegates from those primaries (which are more important unless its a winner take all state) Will not be selected until june/july. That is where the real count is calculated.

:sigh:

for anyone who thinks that these contests are a true gauge for who is going to get the % of the state delegates are fooling themselves. (of course unless its winner take all)

The people need to ignore the media just like they are doing with the truth of the candidate Dr Ron Paul.

ronpaulflix.com...

Crowds are getting bigger, money flowing into the campaign, the structure is going to have to listen at some point rather than to the msm.

This is a GREAT video to help you keep the faith...

He is obnoxious. This is wishful thinking Maybe if he says it people will believe it he hopes. In reality Paul's true popularity is starting to show. Now Paul may win Iowa. It's funny because Romney is actually getting further from the nomination as delegates the media gave to him are, in reality, going to Paul.

Except you are adding those delegates to his current delegate count which isn't real. He is losing delegates everyday to Paul.

Minnesota, Colorado, and now Iowa. More to come.

Romney the robot has no chance to beat Obama in my opinion. And this is why the MSM wants him to be the GOP.candidate so badly. But the people want Ron Paul. so its the people vs the MSM now? Whatever happened to a government by the people, for the people and not a government by corporations for corporations?

I know Paul is heavily supported here but he doesn't stand a hope in hell. Just updated:

elections.nytimes.com...

Paul has 1/9th of the support Romney does. Which is surprising as the RNC wants Romney gone. He's doing this on the conservative vote and his own pocketbook, which is substantial.

What you do not seem to be realizing is that the numbers listed on the page you linked is false. For example, just look at the totals for Iowa and Minnesota. Both those States are in the news, both States are now being reported as Paul carrying the majority of delegates, and according to your link you just provided Paul does not carry the majority of delegates.

Now if you mouse over the word "details" on the far right for each State, what do you see? "The AP provides estimates"

So this whole list of delegates is an "estimate" made by the Associated Press, in other words it's their best guess, not actually fact.

Sorry but those numbers on that page are completely false, guesstimates at best, not based on reality. I already schooled you on this in another thread, but it seems you ignored it, since you are still parroting those numbers. Delegates are simply not awarded yet in many states, yet they are included on that page. In reality, many of those guesstimates have already been proven false since Ron Paul actually have gotten more delegates than Romney in several states that Romney actually won.

OK, I guess we are living in a dream world here. I won't argue with you. Facts are facts and I'd wager hard cash on this. Would you? Is your dream strong enough for that? It's not that I think less of Paul but as I said, facts are facts.

May I ask how facts are facts when the numbers posted on that link are incorrect?

Just curious.

But Ron Paul said he is going to win and he never lies or spins things like every other politician. If he did not win then that would mean he has just been playing his followers for cash. And he would never do that. The next thing you know he will be adding earmarks to bills he knows are going to pass and then voting against them to make it seem like he has a consistent voting record, and we all know he would never do that.
