Trump is still "punch-drunk" when he hugs Newt the way he does, over Mitt Romney. Thing's go down hill real fast when Trump has his hands on someone. WWE owner Vince McMahon has sold WWE Raw to real estate magnate Donald Trump has purchased WWE Raw, in what appears to be a new storyline for the long-running wrestling program. This isn't Trump's first appearance with the WWE, Trump took part in the Battle of the Billionaires, where Trump's fighter Bobby Lashley took on McMahon protege Umaga. Stone Cold Austin served as the referee. Lashley ended up winning the fight, afterward Trump and Lashley shaved McMahon's head. Austin then performed a Stone Cold Stunner on Trump. Trump trumped owner Vince McMahon in the "Battle of the Billionaires," now he's going after Newt's billions he got off from bow down to K Street and Wall Street Corporate sneakiness, outright-scams and con-games. Koch Brother's and ReaganBushClintonBush-villes economics, deregulated for kickbacks for the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist, in their "Field Of Dreams," (of corn and sugar cane), with more corruption, and "crony capitalism."

That's why Romney opponents struggle for traction on ice, ahead of Saturday Nevada caucuses.

Oops Democratic National Committee. So much for calling Mitt Romney Mr. 25%.

How "in the can" for Romney can the DN possibly get? Answer: way in.

I love the way the author of this article Eric Schulzke casually mentions the voting percentages of candidates Romney, Gingrich and Santorum in matter of fact terms and then goes out of his way to paint Ron Paul's votes as coming from "fanatical legions of followers" as if they were Kool-Aid drinking doofuses.

What do you Ron Paul fanatical legions of followers have to say about that?

@ Jonathan: business as usual.

The real story here is how the Gingrich campaign blew the meeting with the Governor, was AWOL with the media for hours and has only two paid staff in the state! Making errors and mismanaging a whole gigantic staff of two! And Gingrich wants to lead a Federal work force of 2.7 million and our Military? Why would anyone vote for this pretender? He can't even manage his campaign and he wants all 308 million of us to follow him? Come on Nevada we need a leader and not one of the guys that has used Religion continually to try and divide us. Santorum has walked away from another state early. How relevant is his campaign? It is not. He left Florida early, came to Nevada for one photo op and left for Missouri. It is time to unite and go after President Obama!

This is where the other candidates realize their anti-Mormon statements weren't such a good idea after all.

"Garafoli writes that Paul is "sending teams of supporters to canvass neighborhoods near Mormon temples"

Uh, both of them? The author doesn't know the difference between Mormon Temples and Chapels?

The Garafoli article sounds like he found a small fringe element of LDS members. Paul doesn't stand a chance in Nevada.

It is good to hear that the people our west may have a more open approach to reality and that values count and you can see it in the person's actions. Mitt is such an excellent example of a leader, father, son, husband and just a good guy. Real people should enjoy seeing a person that brings an image of a President into this arena as a candidate. Thank good for his willingness to be subjected to all this hoopla and scrutiny at this time of his life. There are very few that beat his example for the rest of America and the world. The other side may try to make him look bad but when your life is an exemplar life with experiences and an expertise for the office that we may pull it off in four years to be a light to the world with the values, integrity and a character our parents would be proud of.

Thanks to Governor, Mrs. Romney and their family for showing the voters of Nevada the joy and your caring for them by your smiles and smart look.

The church will never endorse a candidate. It's voice, however, will.

Is the DNC going to start calling Newt Mr. 25% instead of Mitt??
