    That's an impressive % lead. So how do the turn-out numbers compare to previous years?

    I think Santorum should drop out. Really. I would rather see Newt against Romney and see how that goes.

    If Romney was an economic whiz he'd be a billionaire.

    Santorum handed the Puerto Rican vote to Romney because of his "speak English" to join comments, and Romney has handed the vote to President Obama because of his Sotomayor comments. Republicans just can't help themselves when it comes to speaking disparagingly about Hispanics, or the way they loathe them.

    It appears that all of the evangelicals in Puerto Rico left on vacation to Mississippi and Alabama to vote in their election.

    Santorum should have had a chance with this heavily Catholic, strongly family oriented people. So what does he do- tells them, if you want to be part of America, start speaking English. Dumb.

    When the republicans refused to work with the president to help clean up the mess that little george and their party created, it didnt matter what nominee won. the repubs put party before country and that showed their true colors. Now you can go ruin some other country since you have gone global, we dont need you anymore. Find some other people to help you rule the rest of the world and fight your wars, but we have a president and we are going to rebuild the united states of america. you are not welcome here anymore, so take all of the money that you have stolen and taken and find happiness elsewhere. We take care of our own. Obama/biden 2012
