    Rick might have won AL and MS, which was not shocking since Santorum runs solely on prolife, antigay marriage and appeals to the born again Christians. Both AL and MS are made up of 80% from this group. Nevertheless, but Gingrich and Romney kept both races close and Romney won HI and AS. That put him in the lead last time for delegates won, which Gingrich right only a few delegates behind Santorum.

    FYI: Ron Paul left the night with another goose egg, but he still has a chance to win! :badgrin:

    Santorum fans are excited, but Romney has 50 more delegates then all three of the other candidates combined!

    yes, but they have just enough to force the nomination to go to the convention instead of letting romney seal the deal.

    As much as Democrats would like to see a brokered convention- it's highly unlikely. Romney only needs to win 1/3 of the remaining delegates to win the nomination.

    I think a brokered convention would be a waste of time & money, though interesting. A Mormon against Obama would also be..........................unique. I see less anti-Catholic bias as evangelicals turned out for Santorum.

    Not after April--Romney will win enough delegates to win this nomination. Rick Santorum cannot possibly catch up to Romney.

    THE MATH is not there for Rick Santorum. He would literally have to win 99% of the states--including CALIFORNIA just to close the gap--and he would still lose.

    There is no way Rick Santorum can win California--New York--or even Colorado which holds it's ballot primary on June 26th.

    These evangelicals who are voting for Santorum are dumber than dirt--as Rick Santorum insulted them just two years ago when he stated that Protestants are gone from the world of Christianity. What religion do they think they came from--:razz:
