Santorum seems likes he has an excellent chance of finishing third with his recent gaffes.

Romney wins, but does he get a above 50%?  That will be the key.

Doesn't matter. His enemies will say it isn't good enough because it wasn't over 60%.

It is a difference of possibly 10 delegates.  Smiley

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

Too bad that there presumably won't be an exit poll.  It would have been interesting to see the demographic breakdown here.

Santorum - 25%
Paul - 14%
Gingrich - 7%

People, you do know this is the republican party, and that the republican party is very much in favor of statehood...

Really? It would probably not be in their best interests for the national party; given how Puerto Ricans in the states vote, PR would bring in 2 Democratic Senators and at least 4-5 Democratic Representatives, not to mention 8 electoral votes for the Democrats.

True dis. The gop has a relatively strong local party equivilent that can win on parocial island issues, but when national issues take hold post-statehood....

The PNP-Republican link is far from close, and some penepistas would consider it a mortal insult to be called a Republican. (While others are Republicans.) The PNP would probably fracture if forced into the US political system after statehood.

The Democrats are the folks that are supportive of remaining a territory - all the benefits, none of the costs.
