Will Nevada give Romney a second straight victory?

Las Vegas (CNN) - Mitt Romney has a chance on Saturday to do what no Republican presidential candidate has done so far this cycle: win two contests back to back.

Coming off a 14-point victory over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the rest of the GOP field in Tuesday's Florida Republican primary, the former Massachusetts governor is considered the odds-on-favorite to win Nevada's caucuses.

    We teach little league kids to shake hands and congratulate the other team win or loose. What does this tell you about newt. He is an evil, conniving and deceitful person. Read the interview with him called the inner quest for newt Gingrich. It will scare the .., out of you. He is scary.

    Newt spoke of sacred honor. Is cheating on your wife multiple times and not paying child care honor? He has been having affairs since 1962. He wrote 24 fraudulent checks while in congress. In congress he was fined $300,000 for tax evasion. The FBI investigated him in a $10 million bribery scandal and were about to arrest him when dc called it off...hmm. This man is not honorable. He is deceitful.

    Mittens has been running for president for a long time. Nevadans like his idea of allowing their homes to be taken from them and investors renting them out. Mittens' stance against the poor just seals the deal for Nevadans to support him.

    After giving the Mormon Church years 3 + millions of dollars, I guess its enough to buy their vote. Gingrich is running on WE THE PEOPLE campaign, which I hope he continues. His speech after the Florida primary was GREAT! Romney Paid nearly 2 million a point to win Florida with 46%, 8% more than in 2008. Gingrich brought out more voters and was declares most conservative.

    CNN, why can you not get it right? The name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You seem to always leave out the most important part of the church's name. It is Christ's church not the Latter-day Saints.

    Why does Paul continue to defend Rummy? Does he not know that milk-toast, re-tread, bumbling, filthy rich Rummy is the patsy the DEMS want facing Obummer in the fall?

    As told, Mitt Romney will be front-runner, but will not be POTUS, or close even....true, true, true, true, and true.

    Flipper the Elitist Robot and his Rove-fueled SuperPAC supporters have already bought the Nevada election, with some help from his "church."
