    Wow this is going to be a MASSIVE BLOWOUT if these numbers stick. This is over. Good. We need to focus on Obama.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Santorum seems to have cornered the uneducated vote. Draw your own conclusions.

    Romney wins Illinois? Well that tells us that :
    A: Romney might draw independent and moderate votes away from Obama, and
    B: Romney is a pale imitation of Obama.

    So…wait, what? Low turn out you say? Not much enthusiasm for the GOP in Illinois?
    Well that’s a fine How do you Do!

    I sure am getting tired of bad news!

  • democraps suck

    Even if you don’t like it….time to focus on one GOP and attack the illegal Kenyan fraud….

    So, Illinois gets to vote when it matters for the first time in decades, and the turnout is historically low? Yeah…draw your own conclusions from THAT.

    Romney isn’t a pale imitation of Obama. That is disingenuous and lazy thinking.

    hahah, guess who O’s home boys fear the most..

    no, it’s not Michelle, oh wait.. 😆

    The linked article quotes the turnout percentage in Illinois at 15%. In Colorado last month, the percentage of registered Republicans who participated in the primary caucus (won by Rick Santorum, as I recall) was around 10% – yet I don’t recall a similar story on “low turnout” –

    #7, Sam,
    Pick an issue, anyone, and show me where Romney’s position is different than Obama’s.
    Don’t be lazy, pick one.

    This is what you call a route. We have ourselves a candidate, and a fine one at that. Let’s go after it.

    He’s endorsed the basic outline for Paul Ryan’s Prosperity for America, you know Obama wouldn’t touch that.

    Your move.

  • harold

    Looks like it’s time for the others to bow out.

    #14, Sam,
    In other words, Romney will make a deal; like health care, like the auto bail outs, like Sarbanes-Oxley, he will endorse the basic outline with only a few minor changes around the edges. Just like Obama wants to make a deal with the GOP in congress.

    The liberal republican wins the liberal/leftest/communist/democrat state. Go figure.

    I, on the other hand, voted for Newt. And by this single act of patriotism, I’ve EARNED the right to bitch and moan and complain about our politicians and our Chicago-controlled state.

    I will say this, if Romney spends half as much money destroying O as he has destroying his GOP counterparts, this should be a lock.

    Term Limits.

    What are you talking about? Make a deal? With who? Romney didn’t endorse the bailouts. Obama has never been interested in doing a deal with the GOP. None of what you are saying is based on fact.

    These results are not a surprise. Mitt has been leading in all of the polls leading up to tonight. I guess the big question is, what is the purpose of Ron Paul and Newt staying in? What are they trying to prove?

    Positioning themselves for a spot at the Convention? Something they’ll already have.
    In denial that they’re not as popular as they thought?

    I just don’t get it.
