    possibly. who knows. It's still early. Which is why I keep saying that every time someone declares the race over.

    I think people are getting tired of all the negative attack ads. How about adds that tell people what they are going to do to help solve our nation’s problems. All these attack adds are turning people off to Romney and Newt, Santorum has stayed out of that for the most part.

    Santorum won Colorado too. Problem is...I think he got more delegates from the Iowa caucus than he did tonight. Missouri where he had a HUGE win doesn't have ANY delegates. So in the delegate count, it doesn't mean much. However...these states are battle ground states in the general election and Santorum DESTROYED EVERYONE!

    I mean, it wasn't even close. More than a 20% margin in 2 states and 6% in Colorado. He is the FIRST guy to get over 50% in one of these things. THAT...is an indication of voter enthusiasm. Just like the high turnout in South Carolina was.

    I don't know how it will translate in the long run, but you can bet his donations will go up...just like it did for Newt after South Carolina.

    I also suspect the Romney attack machine will now turn to Rick. Which should give Newt some breathing space. Romney can't keep spending money to attack Newt AND go after Santorum or he'll burn through his war chest before the end.

    Don't be surprised if the Santorum's dead baby thing doesn't come back up. Romney's attack machine is some low life SOBs!

    I dont think Romney will touch the baby. They aren't really that low. Newt's just got alot of crap in his closet.

    I think Palin hasn't endorsed anybody because I have a feeling that she is seriouly thinking about getting into the race. She can see that there is no clear candidate. :eek:

    This is great news for Paul. As Republicans desperately try to find a non-Conservative who holds their views, Paul is keeping consistent. As the other RINOs keep falling out of the race, it really boils down to establishment Republicans and Ron Paul.

    While I wish more Republicans would embrace Conservatism, this is good news for the Ron Paul campaign.
