    Romney will blame it on Obama and low voter turn out because he is just the most boring candidate ever

    These candidates are so exciting that voters turn out in historically low numbers. Says so much about the field.

    Figures. It's the south. They're the most intelligent of the bunch. No one's as forward thinking as the South-SNL

    Here's an idea, let's give our red states to Iran in exchange for Iran becoming a pacifist state. That way, we can all live in peace, and the red states will have the theocracy they want soooo badly.

    Time for the old man ,Newt, to turn it over to the younger man who has the backing of the republican base.....the next republican candidate for president of the united states Rick Santorum!!! Maybe Rick Rubio will be his VP and we can have two Rickies running. If Palin runs she could be Lucy. What a great year for politics.....

    The question for the Republicans to decide is which Conservative do they want to run in November. More than 60 percent want a Conservative (either Santorum or Gingrich) while less than 40 percent want a moderate like Romney. It isn't Gingrich or Santorum that should be dropping out to see who wins the head-to-head contest. It is Romney that should be dropping out because we need to know if the Romney voters would favor Santorum or Gingrich. Why doesn't anyone note this very, very basic math? How can we put someone up for President that doesn't even have 40 percent support from their very own Party? If Gingrich dropped out, would Romney pick up any support from Gingrich voters or would all the Gingrich voters support Santorum? I expect that if either of the Conservatives dropped out, the remaining Conservative would run away with the nomination! Why is everyone calling Romney the Front Runner? I just don't get it!!!

    Barack Obama is to blame for the weak job market, the stagnant economy and the rising national deb, not Romney, Santorum or Newt !!!!!!! How can anyone really argue that this president has been successful ? Nothing in any state anywhere feels good or seems right, high gas prices, political strife everywhere you go. Also, Barack Obama's attack on Catholic's and YES this president has created class warfare with all of this 1 % or 99% or 10% crap. Barack Obama has changed this nation and millions of us feel this way and need to vote him out of office this November.

    @matt: every thing you blame on president Obama can
    be traced back to republican policies. sorry, that's
    just the way it is.
