    Michigan: Romney v Santorum vote count

    I will come by here during the day to see what the polls are saying, but whatever opinions people have here...


    Santorum Could Lose Michigan Vote But Still Gain Delegates : It's All Politics : NPR Because of an allocation formula that distributes almost all of its delegates by congressional district, neither Romney nor Rick Santorum is likely to gain more than a handful of delegates over the other, regardless of who wins the statewide vote. (There is also the possibility that Santorum could lose the statewide vote but nevertheless get more delegates.)

    Unless Mittens takes a commanding lead over Ex-Senator Frothy, he'll be seen as weak and Michigan as a loss.
    Prompting some republicans to desire a brokered convention and a new nominee.

    It won't matter who you run CONZ.
    You're all crooks and liars.

    a new nominee?

    I think you pay too much attention to media spin docs. :lol:

    Stop listening to media pundits and tea leaf readers.

    For this election you don't have to be registered with a particular party.

    "You're not declaring yourself as a member of that party. You're simply choosing which ballot you want to vote in this election," said Chris Swope, Lansing City Clerk.

    Willie and Patsie Gaffner, 72, of Haslett, cast their votes for Santorum, saying they agree with the former Pennsylvania senator's moral values.

    "We're for Santorum for the social issues — he's against abortion, against homosexual rights," Willie Gaffner said. "We believe if we vote for those things God's going to give us the rest. That comes before economics and everything else."

    Looks like the GOP can't make up it's mind and are splintered.
