    I don't like Romney or Santorum, but when I look at these numbers, Romney makes WAY too strong of a comeback in such a short time. There already have been allegations of election fraud earlier with Ron Paul (someone I don't support either), but this is odd. What are your guys' opinions? Do you suspect there could be election fraud?

    They're usually better at hiding it.

    People don't jump a 6,000 vote lead in 20 minutes with only an additional 2% vote counted and then that 6,000 lead is maintained.

    Not sure at the moment.

    Santorum 370,558 38%
    Romney 367,388 37%

    19 Minutes later


    Romney 411,871 38%
    Santorum 408,091 37%


    Yes that's a little bit of time for someone to take the lead so suddenly. But they were pretty evenly matched.

    Romney has most the local GOP chairs in his pocket. There is no doubt his campaign is manipulating the numbers. He already got called out in both Iowa and Maine, but there's no substantial evidence beyond statistical wtfs.

    I would agree with you, but then I'd be admitting you are right.

    It's not a general election. I don't think the same rules apply, GOP is a private organization. Nobody really seems to be giving much a shit other than paulbots anyway.

    I care greatly, this shit happened in 2000 and I don't want it to happen again. Romney will lead to a world war.

    He can't beat Obama. No chance in hell. Half the republican party has this whole anyone-but-romney thing going on. And he sure as fuck can't attract indys or demos.

    You have a point then, but then again, Bush won TWO elections.

    Different game. Bush was actually quite appealing in his first campaign. Anti-war stance, small government, the whole Republican package. Once he got in office however, different story. He won the second term cause John Kerry is a douche.

    I don't have faith in Democracy or American Voters anymore, especially given so many of them don't think Obama was born in the United States. Whoever wins the GOP primaries will vote for that guy against Obama. People really don't like Obama.

    Obama Truthers are just grasping for straws. Media controls the elections. They can pretty much sway about 30% of the vote at any given time. Only explanation for Santorum's recent success.

    This plays well for Romney though, considering he owns Clear Channel Communications through Bain Capital.

    It would be highly unlikely, near impossible, for a Republican to win presidential office in these times.

    This nomination does not matter.

    I agree. While his base support has grown to resent him they're all retarded enough to keep "picking the lesser of two evils" and not "waste their votes."
