If Mitt Fails in MI
What Do the RINO’s Do?

2012 February 28
by drdog09

It’s always good to be cautious with one night poll numbers, but momentum seems to be swinging in Santorum’s direction. Romney led with those interviewed on Sunday, but Santorum has a 39-34 advantage with folks polled on Monday. The best sign that things have gone back toward Santorum might be that with those polled today who hadn’t already voted, Santorum’s advantage was 41-31.

Much has been made of Democratic efforts to turn out the vote for Santorum and we see evidence that’s actually happening. Romney leads with actual Republican voters, 43-38. But Santorum’s up 47-10 with Democratic voters, and even though they’re only 8% of the likely electorate that’s enough to put him over the top. The big question now is whether those folks will actually bother to show up and vote tomorrow.

Mitt will carry AZ but lose MI? Hard to believe. But what if it happens? A MI loss will carry much more weight than the AZ win. Mittens is MI hometown boy and they don’t want him? There goes the electability meme. Romney can’t hold onto that card any longer with a loss like that. Worse, if the spread is 5,6 points what does that do to standings in Super Tuesday?

If MI pans out per the article, then the best move is not for Romney or Rick. Gingrich needs to drop out. Lend his support for Santorum and figure he has a cabinet post of his choosing come January.

    What do the RINOs do?

    Sit down, shut-up, and stop enabling the Democrats in the destruction of this country.

    Study and adopt a conservative philosophy and in so doing start defending the Constitution and the intentions of the founders.

    Rather optimistic aren’t I?

    Eph, I think even RINOs will reject The Won this time. It’s one thing to welcome creeping Socialism…quite another to welcome hell-bent-for-leather Marxism.

    The term: “Most important election in our lifetime” has been overused in the past few elections…THIS time it’s true. We have NEVER had a President with a fanatical agenda of “Transforming” our nation FROM a Republic INTO a “Smiley Face Dictatorship”…until now. Oh…and it’ll only stay “Smiley” for a very short while.

    It’s a bright, sunny morning in Michigan. I voted around 8:30 and was the 35th person to vote in my precinct.

    In Michigan, you not only have to produce a photo ID to vote, but the poll workers have a card reader and scan your card to ensure that it is valid.

    EPH — who should the RINOs have backed? Johnson?

    RINOs are about keeping the GOP as a “status quo” party from the Eisenhower days …
    which is to retain their personal power within the party even if that means they will be a minority status party, and regardless of what is in the best interest of the country.

    The downside for those of us pulling for Rick tonight in Mi:

    In a poll of Michigan Republicans taken Feb. 26, Public Policy Polling (PPP) found that 16 percent of Republican primary voters will have already voted before Tuesday. Of that 16 percent, a large majority say they voted for Romney: 62 percent, versus 29 percent for Rick Santorum.

    How do those numbers play out as actual votes? Four years ago, 869,000 people voted in Michigan’s Republican presidential primary. If the same number turn out this time, that’s 139,000 absentee votes. If you take 62 percent of that, that’s 86,204 votes already in the Romney column, versus 40,321 votes for Santorum.

    16 Bruce,

    Look at it his way. Romney was expected to clean the floor with Santorum in Michigan.

    That obviously will not happen. Tonight is a win-win for Santorum. Especially since MI is not winnet take all. In fact, he still might get 50% of the delegates w/o winning.

    Interesting fact about Michigan primaries.

    I was on the Secretary of State’s website last night search of polling hours and came across the results of past Michigan GOP presidential primaries. In 1992 David Duke had over 10,000 votes. In 2008 Duncan Hunter had less than 3,000 votes (losing to “uncommitted” by a 6-1 margin).

    Duncan Hunter was one of the worst Preisdential candidates ever.

    If Romney can’t put away Santorum and can’t handle a run-of-the-mill robocall, how is he going to handle Team Obama’s Chicago goons and the Democrat deacons of truly dirty tricks?

    Excellent point…. and isn’t this inability to handle opposition also displayed in the Romobots? Haven’t we watched all of the Romney supporters poop their pants the second anyone disagrees with their false narrative about Romney?

    Romney has been running for POTUS for 6+ years. I assert Romney has been running since 1968 with daddy washed out as a POTUS candidate. In all of these years Romney has developed zero personal warmth. The insincerity of Romney just oozes out.

    I have not been to any Romney campaign rallys and have not watched any speechs on C-Span. I have listened to Romney interviews on talk radio and watched him do the Sunday morning shows. I suspect that the average voter will see about this much of Romney if he is the nominee. I don’t see how he will be moving those in the middle to vote for him.

    Those of us who will crawl across broken glass to vote against Obama will be at the polls in November. How about those who voted for Obama in 2008 but don’t want to vote for him now? What will motivate them out of their chairs?

    ~~~~~~~~~
    Amen Judy! BUT (since we know what you said is true) WHY in the world isn’t he just running away with the election? He shouldn’t HAVE to get ‘better’ at campaigning…he’s been doing it sooo long he should have it perfected. He shouldn’t HAVE to get his name out there, he’s been campaigning so long…IF he’s the only one of the group electable against Zero, how come he needs to spend a quarter of a jillion dollars in every state to get EVEN let alone WIN a state?

    One thing that REALLY gets my goat…Where was he during the first two years of Zero’s term? He was one of the leaders of the R party, since the R loss of the election. He was MIA for almost 30 months, while Palin was out there doing all the heavy lifting. Even Newt was out there occasionally, speaking out, having plans, writing books…But if Romney is the presumptive nominee, and it appears even HE thinks he is, then I want to know why he wasn’t in the trenches in 2009 and 2010, fighting tooth and nail against the regime?

    Oh. Could it be Robamacare?

    One last question? So what if Santorum is asking for Dem voters? Where did Reagan democrats come from? I’m sure that whoever wins the R nomination will be receiving democratic votes because I do believe there are Dems who want to run like hell from Zero….I don’t like chicanery, but wow. He’s right up froint about it, not doing it under-ground or behind anyone’s back…

    Romney is like all other RINOs total hypocrite…

    I heard the Romney sound bite about the “new low” in campaigning. The GOP slime king is whining about another’s candidates as being a “new low”. I almost choked from laughing.

    Translation: Santorum is pointing out a truth about me and I don’t like it.

    All Santorum is doing with his Democrat’s go vote advertisement is pointing out that Romney favored the bailout for Wall Street but objected to the bailout for the car companies.

    Santorum has been very up front that he was against both bailouts.

    I agree that Democrats, especially those blue collar conservative Democrats are looking for a reason to support Santorum.

    “People say Santorum can’t beat Obama, but who would have thought Santorum would be where he is today.”

    And

    “People say only Romney can beat Obama, but if he can’t beat Santorum then how is he electable over Obama?”

    This means that Santorum has accomplished so much with little money and no one expecting him to last (SANTORUM WON IOWA!!!)

    But Romney who was suppose to have the nomination sewn up a year ago cannot put Santorum away. Santorum will probably win a few districts and delegates out of Michigan. (Think today ends it? SANTORUM LEADS IN OHIO and Santorum will take his home state and several other Midwest states.)

    Rush just bitched slapped Romney about his unwillingness to say incinerary things about Obama just to satisfy the base.

    Rush says Romney is showing what Romney thinks about the base.

    FYI — McCain waited until the general election to fly the white flag of not attacking Obama.

    This has been one of our concerns that Romney did not have the spine or the inclination to attack Obama.

    Romney thinks his experience in the private sector should be sufficient to get him elected. I can see the Democrat’s commercials now…

    “Romney thinks making himself and his buddies rich is sufficent reason for you to vote for him”… but he already said “I like to fire people” and “I don’t care about poor people”

    True as it goes. However the high gas prices are a reflection of recession, not the cause. Debasing the dollar is the cause of the high prices, hence the recession in general.

    I agree with Judy. What would Gingrich bring to the ticket? As the Rasmussen polls I posted yesterday illustrate, Gingrich does the worst of the four against Obama. Newt isn’t that popular.

    Getting back to drdog09’s original question: what would RINOs do if Mitt fails in MI and starts drowning? They would start looking for alternatives: Jeb, Christy, Daniels and Giuliani immediately come to mind. Perhaps even Thune or Pawlenty.

    82 Remember when Mitt was “dominating” the field way back when and the estblishment said NO CHANCE for a brokered convention? hahahahahahahahahahaha

    DRDog — I don’t think so… Gingrich doesn’t add anything that he can’t do off the ticket and he doesn’t add anything to the ticket. — Judy, BC

    Attack dog, and balancing the tacket. Gingrich can nullify the MSM and Biden. The leaves Santorum to lead out on curative policies.

    Would you open your wallet to a Santorum/Newt ticket?

    From a strategic perspective unless you can guarantee a replacement (R) for Martinez its not wise to promote him.

    85,

    Yes. Its time someone in the GOP get down in the mud with the Socialists and offed a few, metaphorically. In the primaries so far Gingrich is miles ahead of any of the others on that score. He has also muted the MSM quite well.

    We won’t win this election playing nice guy. McCain did that and he got roasted. His one weapon, Sarah, he held back. His team thinking that the high road was the way to win. All the while ACORN was commiting fraud with voter regs cards.

    “What is wrong with an all Catholic ticket… Dem’s have a 100% socialist idiot ticket.”

    The problem for Dems and RINOs is that Santorum and Martinez are actual Catholics rather than the Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Kennedy, Durban, Sebelius-type Catholics. They both believe stuff like abortion is morally wrong and the government shouldn’t subsidize it.

    All you need to know about Milque Romney:

    ROMNEY: It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments. We’ve seen throughout the campaign that if you’re willing to say really outrageous things that are accusative and attacking of President Obama, that you’re gonna jump up in the polls. I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support. I am who I am. I’m a person with extensive experience in the private sector, in the economy.

    RUSH: All right. Gosh, these guys are making it so hard for me. So Romney’s not willing to say incendiary things about Obama to excite the base. Well, what does he say? Nice guy, just in over his head. What does this tell you that Romney thinks of the base?

    From Rush’s show today. All we need is another ‘don’t say anything critical of Obama’ candidate.

    Bruce,

    Within 4 points of winning in Michigan is a win for santorum – especially in terms of delegates

    AZ doesn’t matter – sad to admit

    “Attack dog, and balancing the tacket. Gingrich can nullify the MSM and Biden. The leaves Santorum to lead out on curative policies.”

    The GOP will take Georgia and the rest of the South with Santorum (or even Romney) so Gingrich does not add any state.

    So that leaves …. Rubio who would hopefully bring Florida. Does the Florida Republican Governor name a Senate replacement?

    or Ryan (although he doesn’t)

    Newt can still play attack dog all over the media and I think Newt would be more willing to play that role for Santorum that he would for Mittens given the slime that oozes from the Romney campaign.

    Sliming and whining… is there anything else that describes Romney’s campaign

    You are the among the last of the generation that followed the EF Hutton refrain — “She earned it!” And more power to you.

    RE: #103 — are these stupid bitches buying t-shirts and sweatshirts with various school logos? Every party had a special t-shirt or sweatshirt.

    Are these stupid bitches buying beer? Pizza?

    If you can’t afford your birth control and it is that important to you find some way to cut back on something else.

    Are these stupid bitches buying outline books and other study aids?

    Don’t … obviously screwing is more important that studying.

    To be sure the women getting manicures & pedicures and hair done at least once a month, buying clothing, electronics… should not be looking to someone else to buy their birth control.

    Bruce,

    Just me, any win by Santorum in MI is going to leave a mark. But if he wins by a +1% margin or better the RINOs will be in full stampede mode.

    Do we have to rent her a motel room too? How about we buy her some liquor before, and a cigarette afterwards? Oh, and I guess we should buy her some fishnet stockings so can troll more easily!!

    Judy #103 –

    As a graduate of a Jesuit University, I would like to apologize for the Jesuits. They are a tremendous embarrassment to the Catholic Church and Georgetown University is their most embarrassing college. Not only for sluts like this one but also for its Ialamic Center.

    I have a friend whose son was considering Georgetown. After he visited, he said, “Dad, at Georgetown they act like they are ashamed to be Catholic.”

    I am a big fan of Catholic education through high school. Then it’s off to state universities. You get the same result for one-third to one-quarter the cost.

    Undergrad tuition at Georgetown is $40,203 and on-campus room and board will take you over $52k.

    Ok. But lets take the flip of that argument. Of the 10 battle ground states, both Santorum and Romney poll with comfortable margins. So picking Gingrich or not does not factor in. What’s left are the blue states. I can’t think of a single person whose presence on the ticket will turn a state red.

    Second factor. If the goal is to repeal a bunch of Olegislation then that requires experience in the muck and mire of Congress. Gingrich knows how the House works. He would sit as the presiding vote in the Senate.

    #103 and when she gets aids or whatever else kind of disease, we’ll have to pay for it, because we’ll have been the one paying for her unprotected sex. I say that because I highly doubt this moron knows that birth control pills don’t stop diseases.

    3k seems awfully expensive, unless she is paying for the dude’s beer goggles. She does have an impressive case of the fug, so it would make sense. I don’t think I have spent that much money on contraception in, well, ever, and I am older than her.

    Geraghty:

    Could be a long night: “Conservative Intel and JMC Polling & Analytics have just gotten the results of our exclusive exit polling of likely voters in the Michigan Republican primary. At this moment, Michigan is too close to call with Romney at 39% and Santorum at 38%, with a 5% margin of error.”

    I am told the sample for this poll is Michiganders who have voted early, have voted today, or who told the pollster they will be voting by the end of the day.

    UPDATE: A regional breakdown and other data:

    Upper Peninsula: Romney/Santorum 38% each

    Northern Michigan: 43-35% Romney

    Flint Saginaw Midland: 42-27% Romney

    Metro Detroit: 43-34% Romney

    South Central Michigan: 38-34% Santorum

    Western Michigan: 48-34% Santorum

    Those who voted absentee: Romney 42-39%, Rep 66, Ind 25, Dem 9

    Those who have yet to vote: Santorum 38-30%, Rep 43, Ind 38, Dem 19

  120. 2012 February 28 4:54 pm

    122. That’s a win for Santorum
