TK,

I do not listen to Hugh Hewitt, but one thing I do recall. He's always wanted Mitt Romney for President. Perhaps Hugh is hoping for an open floor fight. Not going to happen.

Hugh and Glenn Beck will have to get in line and go along with the program. Romney had his chances both in 2008 (for the nomination) and 2012 (for the presidency). He LOST. Get over it, Hugh.

Rick Ballard

"What does he do if Frump gets the nomination?"

He'll do what most of the notTrump voters driving the record primary turnouts will do.

Miss Marple

Contrast Trump congratulating Cruz on his win vs. this long-winded attack on Trump, which included some untruths.

Cruz is cutting his own throat with this speech, in my opinion. Strategic mistake.

He will do what Christie does: Support Mr. Trump

Sean T at RCP ‏@SeanTrende 31m31 minutes ago
So using our delegate calculator, it projects to Trump ~370, Cruz ~194, Rubio~126, Kasich ~38, Carson ~23. ~1700 delegates remain. 1/3

Not crazy about all the fire & brimstone from Cruz. It's hardly very Canadian of him.

glasater

Anyone know what the actual numbers of voters in the states each candidate got? Or a site that produces those numbers? My brain is fried and eyes are tired from a very busy afternoon.
Thanks!

Other than the attack on Trump, Cruz's speech was pretty good, better than his others.

Miss Marple

Trump wins Arkansas.

PBS clown says Trump has had a banner night but he still does terrible with women.

He begrudgingly states that Trump has done better than Romney at the same point.

MarkO - you may be just one man, but people look up to a man on a horse.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Cruz made some great points about overarching themes - themes that I'd bet he is going to be bringing up in the coming weeks.

Pointed out many of the Trumpster's weaknesses and conflicting claims, and set them up for further attacks.

Imo, he helped himself tremendously in the long run.

glasater@10:31, the links at the top of Drudge go to vote counts.

Rubio also attacking Trump.

narciso

The contest can't go highlander until one leaves the arena.

Seems like Rubio will win Minnesota, though they're not calling it yet. Trump 3rd.

Jeff Dobbs

Oh man. That look Christie had standing behind Trump?

How to keep Christie’s attention during a Trump speech

Miss Marple

jimmyk,

It's Minnesota. Cruz is too conservative for them and they got burned on an outsider with Ventura. I am not surprised.

I thought Andrea could visit the ledge long enough to get chucked into the river to see if she floats like the witch she is.

Before that have Andrea test the bungee cord jump OL will soon install. If she comes back up, chuck her immediately.

Lindsey Graham on CBS just now: "we may be in a position where we have to rally around Ted Cruz."

jimmyk on iPhone

MM, it's also a caucus, not a primary, so who knows what it really means. Still, a win is a win if he gets it. And Kasich is very close in VT.

Jeff Dobbs

BTW - VT still too close to call.

72% in
Trump 14,936
Kasich 14,212

narciso

So now Lindsey is on the ledge.

Miss Marple

Fox Business has Carl Icahn on, and he is saying GOP needs to unify.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

How about we all agree on throwing Miss Lindsey off the ledge to see if she he can float?

Then use Trandrea Mitchell for testing the bungee jump, and maybe the cannon fire ranging.

Destiny Ignatz

If Graham Cracker is on OL's ledge one of has gotta go.

Jim Miller

Jeff Dobbs - Did Trump also praise China's pollution controls?

From what I have read, they are in a class of their own.

Dem operative Robert Zimmerman says the FBI isn't investigating Hillary, they're investigating her emails. Are they going to indict her emails?

Better get Rubio back on with the FOX folks so he can talk some more about how this was a better night for him than for Cruz.

The state that gave us Gov. Ventura and Sen. Franken.

And governor target, thanks to one of these cunning cunning plans.

Frau Hottemax

Clarice, that news from Pomona College is not good.

There is something putrid in academia.

jimmyk on iPhone

Doesn't look like Rubio gets to 20% in TX. Do those get split among Cruz and Trump, or are they uncommitted?

Stephanie

It certainly is. Hope his meal gets stuck in his throat tonight. :0

Miss Marple

jimmyk,

If Rubio doesn't get to 20%, the votes are split proportionally between Trump and Cruz.

glasater

Thanks for the help tk and jimmy!!

Frau Hottemax

"Are they going to indict her emails?"

jimmyk - Using early English law, the emails can be found guilty and punished. Serves 'em right.

There's still Parbati's little cricket.

Ja, Frau, academe gone critical mass.

Frau Hottemax

"Bernie looks a lot more like a guy you'd like to sit down and have a joint with."

Just name one thing *anyone* would want to share with Hillary!..I double dog dare you.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

If Trump is smart, and he doesn't seem dumb, he will continue his method from tonight.
A sober guy with only flashes of his histrionic self will see his negatives decline and will, as Wretchard puts it in his latest, advance unstoppably like the Blob on the capital.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

It is rumored Huma likes to share her humidor.

Sure I'll share
And double dare;

Jeff Dobbs

jimmyk:

There are 155 total delegates. 44 are statewide - split between candidates with 20% or more.

The rest are divided up 3 per congressional district - split proportionally (typically 2 for the winner and 1 for the second place finisher).

GUS

Many peeps have shared a CASE of CORONA with Sir Hillary!!!!

Rodham does not share. Rodham is a SHREW of EPIC proportions. It's hard to even fathom how, RODHAM has accepted her "beloved" husbands abuse.
Yet she has and does. Rodham is a special kind/sort of Sociopath. Rodham does not recognize normal human emotion nor does "she" recognize...RIGHT from WRONG. Hillary Rodham is a completely SOCIOPATHIC loser. LOSER, being the operative word.

GUS

Good night Miss Marple. You are the best.

Hey everybody! What'd I miss?

Jeff Dobbs

Lindsey Graham on CBS just now: "we may be in a position where we have to rally around Ted Cruz."

Is this before of after Lindsey shoots him on the floor of the Senate?

jimmyk

the emails can be found guilty and punished.

They can blame the easy availability of e-mail, especially automatic e-mail and assault e-mail. We need sensible e-mail control in this country.

The Fox news piece on the new jaybees is a little behind the mark, at least two al Sherri and am rubbaish have gone Norwegian blue.

MN feels the Bern.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Hi Porchlight - Lotsa wrinkles in the ongoing primary battles. And some good funnies, to boot.

Six states for the Trumpster
Two states for Cruz
One state for Rubio

One state a toss-up Trump/Kasich (VT)
Two states TBD (WY and AK)

The only things I'd be willing to share with Sir Hillary would more than likely have the Secret Service and FBI violently opening my front door in the wee hours.

jimmyk - You are *so* right.

First, we need to register them all.
Then, we need to confiscate them all.

After all, only the police and the military *need* to have e-mail in this country.

Gentlejim

Jimmyk,
The most dangerous emails are the ones purchased in Indiana at unregulated email shows by straw purchasers. They are then packed into nondescript vans and transported to the Utopian streets of Chiraq.

Moody's downgrades China's debt outlook from stable to negative.

Porchlight

Thanks, Michael and lol TK.

The exit polling should be interesting.

I was out with my lefty friends. Bernie supporters, Hillary haters for the most part. I managed to highlight Hillary awfulness, Trump's vaguely anti-interventionist stances on FP, and the as yet not solidified anecdotal Dem defection to Trump (hello, Massachusetts!). I said I think Trump will win it all and I can't vote for the corrupt lying anti-woman Hillary. They still think I'm a lefty. These are people who consider themselves somewhat libertarian yet still use the term teabagger. So I planted the "Trump isn't so awful" idea in their heads. I'm ABH so I consider it a win.

I heard Trump called out Paul Ryan. Good for him.

I didn't think Rubio could win a state. It freaking would be my sort of home state of Minnesota. They have bad taste in politicians.

GUS

Iggy, didn't Obama have something to say about Moody's, back IN THE DAY?

Jeff Dobbs

Rubio will get to the 20% threshhold in GA and TN.

He will miss it in TX and AL.

Frau Hottemax

GUS remains the winner for Lent with CH and Porch doing JOM proud. We are indeed blessed.
G'nytall...

(Where did Parvati get the crickets? I tossed one outside yesterday. A major mistake, I guess.)

GUS

Frau, Thank you, I love you Gal.

Porchlight

Frau is the tops. I only wish I spoke enough German to understand her many screennames. Sometimes I can guess.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Porchlight - You're a saint for being able to put up with some of those lefties in your little blue hell.

You missed some classic spin from Rubio. . .
on how coming in third in so many states makes him the best frontrunner for the nomination.

.

GUS

Porchlight, you are awesome. Intelligent and logical. Hard core liberals, will call anyone that they consider REPUBLICAN or CONSERVATIVE, vicious names and believe that ANYONE who does not share their WEAK, DISGUSTING, ILLOGICAL or FECKLESS agenda is X, Y, Z and WORSE.
I do not hate, nor do I seek the DESTRUCTION of the FINEST, and most GIVING NATION to ever exist.

jimmyk

Spoke to my 94-year-old dad tonight, a lifelong Democrat, asked him who he was going to vote for in Michigan. Was happy to hear him say "Well, I don't care for Hillary very much." So I egged him on a bit: "So you'll vote for Sanders? You seem like a Sanders kind of guy." And he said he thought he would.

GUS

Porchlight, YOU and FRAU are awesome.
I love the BOTH of YOU!!

Gus has spoken!!

maryrose

Trump wins Vermont

Jeff Dobbs

http://fivethirtyeight.com/live-blog/super-tuesday-primaries-presidential-election-2016/?#livepress-update-12728844

Here are my back-of-the-envelope delegate projections: Based on current vote counts and each state and district’s allocation rules, Trump is on track to end up with about 262 delegates, Cruz is on track to win about 215, and Rubio is on track to win about 93. That’s an even more awful result for Rubio than I thought, and it’s a lot worse for Rubio than The New York Times’s Upshot model is currently projecting. After tonight, Rubio could be more than 100 delegates behind Cruz and more than 200 delegates behind Trump.

DebinNC

Rubio will get to the 20% threshhold in GA and TN.

That's because early voting had been going on for a week and a half before Rubio's TX debate performance last Thursday unmasked him.

Porchlight

Thanks, Michael and Gus. Being in Austin I don't have much of a choice. I was dreading seeing these folks tonight but it ended up that I think we made more of a political connection than I expected. They will probably vote Hillary in the end but I sense they are more disappointed about Bernie than they are angry about Trump. That seems like a hopeful indicator to me.

narciso

In other news conquistador Cameron showed he's less of a twit then expected.

jimmyk

And despite the talking heads saying what a great night it is for Hillary, Sanders taking four states is not bad, since he had no chance in the south. Seems like it's not going to get much better for him though, from what I've seen of the polls. You'd think an old white Jewish guy could do well in Florida, but the polls show Hillary up by 25+.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Porchlight - Frau has had some terrifically funny screen names. I cannot imagine how she comes up with such topically funny names.

A great resource for quick translations is:

http://www.wordreference.com

They have a simple translation box on the homepage to pick the languages 'from > to', and the word/phrase to be translated.

Porchlight

Jimmy, pretty cool that you can have a conversation like that with your dad. My mom is anti-Trump because he says mean things about people like John McCain for whom she refused to vote. Go figure. But maybe I can chip away at the edges. At any rate, my dad will cancel out her vote in FL.

Jeff Dobbs

Deb:

What are you basing that on?

I'm looking at exit polls saying late deciders broke more for Rubio than anyone else.
