GoGetter:I and many of my LDS friends are not voting for Romney just
because he is LDS. Religion is relevant to the discussion, however, because
many who are not LDS are reluctant to vote for a "Mormon" - some out
of religious prejudice, others because they fear the unknown or have heard too
many distortions from the anti-Mormon "Evangelicals." Romney can win
more easily in states with significant numbers of LDS because there is less
anti-Mormon bigotry in those states.I and most of his supporters in Utah
are supporting him because of his values (shown in his lifestyle, not just his
words), his economic expertise, and his leadership (saving the 2002 winter
olympics in SLC).
"The libertarian-leaning Paul has virtually no chance of winning the
Republican nomination. But he's targeting states that allocate delegates
proportionately, hoping to win enough to assure him a prominent voice at the
August national convention."You newspaper writers just don't
get it, do you? Ron Paul is not trying to get a prime time speech at the
convention. He's not in this to raise his national profile for a future run.
He's not seeking to become more popular with the Republican base. He's trying
to convince people to wake up to our unavoidable debt crisis if we don't stop
over-extending ourselves at home and abroad.
That's not American. Voting for the candidate just because he belongs to the
same religion you do.Shame on you Utah, Arizona and Nevada
Mormons.I'm Mormon too, but you need to chose the candidate based on
his credentials and how he says he will change the country. IF you arrive to an
educated opinion to vote Mitt, vote for him ONLY after that.
'If you check the 2008 stats at realclearpoltics website, with the exception of
Arizona, Mitt won all the states in February by large and comfortable margins.'
- LDSareChristians | 3:07 p.m. Jan. 31, 2012 And still lost... the 2008 Republican primary. Not sure why you keep
reffering to 2008. Since, it is an example, of a loss.
Mitt wins Florida!The six primaries in the month of February are in
the bag. If you check the 2008 stats at realclearpoltics website, with the
exception of Arizona, Mitt won all the states in February by large and
comfortable margins. McCain, the obvious winner in Arizona 2008, is endorsing
Mitt this time.So, the six primaries after Florida will be easy wins for
Mitt.Washington State Mar 3rd, I haven't studied it yet.Mar 6, Super
Tuesday, 11 states: Alaska, Wyoming, Idaho, Mass, ND, Vir (Mitt only one on
ballot) all easy. Hard to get will be GA, Tenn, OK, because of evangelical vote.
OH and Vermont, probably on momentum will go for Mitt.After Mar 6th? Well,
McCain has endorsed Mitt. Many of the states that went with him last time will
probably go with Mitt this time.If you look at the wiki site 2008 GOP
primary results, all the yellow states (Mitt) and most of the Green (McCain)
states from 2008 should go for Mitt. Most of the blue
(Huckabee/Evangelicals)will probably go for Newt/other.Go Mitt 2012
Newt is conservatisms Bill Clinton, but without the charm.
this isn't Leroy's only problem. he isn't organized enough to be on the Virginia
ballot, his home state. He also isn't in Missouri's caucus ballot and several
other states. I think americans deserve a president that is bright enough to get
on the ballot and have a real organization. Leroy doesn't have a chance of
winning this, but he doesn't care. He just wants to take Willard down with him.
It's not going to happen.
