LOL, 2 1/2 hours until polls close at 1am.

Time for some sleep ?

I have to say, I'm really impressed by your dedication to being up for these things at such terrible hours Tongue

Intrade

Didn't they have Santorum at like 2.5 percent to win Ohio, when it was even?

Drudge really is jumping the gun. There's three hours of voting left, and past exit polls have tended to show Romney supporters showing up earlier.

Downplaying expectations in MS & AL seems like the rational thing for Santorum's campaign to do no matter where they're at in the polls.

Agreed. If the says he's not going to win ahead of time, it doesn't get spun into an "UNEXPECTED LOSS" or anything if he loses, and if he wins then they can announce it as a "SURPRISE VICTORY." It also probably helps to set up a narrative of "Romney won because Gingrich splits the anti-Romney vote, he should drop out of the race now" if that's the path Santorum's people want to take (or, alternatively, "we managed to win these two states that are on Gingrich's home turf, he should drop out of the race now").

Drudge is being misleading. Those are numbers from his crappy online poll, extracted to be only MS/AL voters.

I'm still not buying it entirely. Why should Romney suddenly be over 30%? Are MS and AL in some way more favorable than TN and OK in a Republican primary?

Lmao, is that what that is? I was about to say, either those numbers or completely bogus or Ron Paul is somehow pulling 20% in both states.

One possible explanation could be pandering, but that still doesn't explain how in the world people are stupid enough to buy it.

Up at the top he has "network exits say" and then below is his "Drudge Polling Data". He is being deliberately misleading and trying to make people think they are one and the same. Note the gigantic Ron Paul vote.

In other early exit poll news, evangelicals and "very conservative" voters are a(n even) bigger share than usual in MS; also high in AL. Around 80% evangelical in both; around 40% "very conservative" in MS.

Personally I don't think Santorum would've won Iowa without him.

Drudge is still a little bit relevant in setting the narrative; a lot of news media types still frequently check his site in the hopes that they'll be the first to see the next Lewinsky-type scandal.

If those Drudge numbers are that bogus, Gingrich is likely a massive value on Intrade right now.. especially in MS

Definitely a buying opportunity if you've got the cash to spare.
