Rasmussen: Both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum beat Obama in the general election

mitt-romneyWith the far left, and their lickers in the media in meltdown over this whole “war on women” schtick, you would think Obama is a shoe-in for reelection this November. The media likes to tell us how badly the GOP is doing with women after the whole Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy. And if you listen to the Obama lickers in the lame stream media, you would also think that this GOP campaign has damaged the candidates so much, that Obama will crush them. Eh, too bad for them. The latest Rasmussen poll shows not only Mitt Romney beating the Marxist Obama, but also Rick Santorum. You know, the same Rick Santorum who’s been portrayed as “crazy” by Obama’s media?

Rick Santorum wins Kansas Republican caucuses

rick-santorumTalk about a slaughter! With 87% of the Kansas precincts reporting, Rick Santorum has been declared the winner of the Kansas caucuses. Santorum has 53% of the vote. Second place (barely) is Mitt Romney at just 17%. Newt Gingrich is close behind Romney at 16% and Ron Paul is at 13%. Kansas has 40 binding delegates. 28 delegates are at large (proportional), and the rest are winner take all congressional districts. Santorum obviously looks like he is winning every district in Kansas. Mittens can claim victory from the earlier Guam non-binding causes that he won with nine whole delegates.

Super Tuesday speeches from Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul

mccain-romneyWith Alaska the last state to close their caucus and vote totals coming in late, they still don’t have a declared winner of their caucus yet at the time of this posting. Mitt Romney may win the Alaska caucuses as he is ahead by a few hundred votes. The other nine states on Super Tuesday went pretty much as expected (except maybe Ohio). Romney won five states, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Idaho and Ohio. Rick Santorum won three states: Oklahoma, Tennesee, and North Dakota. Newt Gingrich won one state, Georgia. Unless Ron Paul wins the Alaska caucuses, he will be the only candidate to not win a state on Super Tuesday. Below is the speeches from all the candidates.

Rick Santorum wins North Dakota caucus

rick-santorumI didn’t see too many polls on the North Dakota Republican caucus, but from all the pundits in the media, I was lead to believe that Mitt Romney was going to win the state’s caucus easily. Eh, not so much. Rick Santorum has won the North Dakota caucuses. Romney is way ahead in the Idaho caucuses at the time of this posting, so it looks like both Santorum and Romney will have won three states each before Ohio is decided and the polls/caucuses close in Alaska.

rick-santorumWow. What a change in this poll. The last Rasmussen poll two weeks ago of Ohio’s Republican primary had Rick Santorum crushing Mitt Romney by 18 points at 42% to 24%.  Fast forward to today, and after the Michigan and Arizona primaries, and now the race for the Ohio GOP primary looks to be a toss up. According to the latest Rasmussen poll out of Ohio, Rick Santorum still leads Romney, but only by 2 points at 33% to 31%.

According to CNN, Rick Santorum source said the campaign received contributions from more than 130,000 donors, much different than Mitt Romney and his small number of large contributors.

Delegate allocation from Michigan GOP primary: 15 for both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum

rick-santorumMitt Romney may have won the popular vote in the Michigan primary last night, but he didn’t win more congressional districts. In fact, Rick Santorum won as many of Michigan’s congressional districts as Mitt Romney did (seven each), so both candidates will equally split the 30 Michigan GOP delegates and get 15 delegates. Basically the Michigan primary ends in a tie if you use the delegate allocation to track who “won.”

Rick Santorum concession speech in after coming in second to Romney in Michigan and Arizona (Video)

rick-santorumRick Santorum made some fatal gaffes over the past week that might have cost him the state of Michigan. Arizona was never really up for grabs, and it was a winner take all state anyway. But Rick Santorum even lost the Catholic vote to Mitt Romney after his “throw up” remark about JFK over the past weekend. Nothing he said affected how I would vote, but I don’t get to vote in a primary until June out here. One thing I personally didn’t like was Santorum paying for those robocalls encouraging Marxist Democrats to vote for him supporting the left wing loon’s failed “operation chaos” thing. The speech (to me anyway) seemed a bit flat, but was gracious and not bitter. The speech is about 18 and a half minutes long.
