Super Tuesday totals, other political tidbits

Check out totals here.

GOP pledged delegate scorecard count here. Popular vote totals here.

Nightmare of the evening?
Sarah Palin, desirous of a brokered convention, threatens to enter the GOP presidential race: Her statement to CNN: “As I say, anything is possible… I would seriously consider whatever I can do to help our country. And I don’t close any doors that perhaps would be open out there. So, no, I wouldn’t close that door. And my plan is to be at that convention.”

The unexpected highlight? Oklahoma also held a Democrat primary yesterday. Barack Obama lost 15 counties he previously carried in 2008!

    Interesting that Ohio Catholics abandoned Santorum. His statement about John Kennedy’s view on separation of church and state making him want to “throw up” probably didn’t help. I’m Catholic and I cringed when I heard it.

    The evangelicals ran from Romney in droves due to their distrust of Mormons. Seems to me they might distrust a man who was raised and educated as a Muslim more.

    We All better come together behind our eventual candidate or we’re doomed.

      Amen to that, brother. An unconstrained second term Obama will make us long for what we currently deplore. His Supreme Court appointments alone will change the face of this country in ways we can’t even imagine. This coming election will be the most crucial in our nation’s history. If we mess this up, our children and their great grandchildren will be enslaved. All those who indicate a willingness to sit on their hands and not vote if Romney is the GOP nominee better wake up and smell the coffee.

      Romney’s not my first choice, but if he’s the nominee, I’ll be first in line to cast my ballot for him.

    This anti-Mormon talk is getting me down. Most of Arizona’s strongest conservative state legislators are Mormon. They have not torn our state apart. There are Mormons holding office all across the United States. This is the same talk we heard about electing John Kennedy president. It was BS when the object of derision was Catholic and it’s BS now. It’s fine not to support someone because of political disagreements, but hacking them up over their faith will be our undoing. And Republicans better support our candidate in November, whoever that person might be. There will be do do over if we mess this one up.

    Besides Senator Pearce there are at least half a dozen other mormons in the house and senate. Also, we have a couple in the state GOP officers and staff and if you check the pc’s and state committeemen in all the counties you’ll find at least 1/3 of them are mormons. Even the mormon website only show 4% of their membership lives in Arizona. These people have build up every community they live in and support the TEA party in droves and will fight for freedom of all religions and gun rights as well. Now that being said they still have there bad apples like harry reid and jerry lewis who are out for themselves and call themselves good mormons but the fruit on the tree is rotten on the inside and showing on the outside. If Rick wins the GOP nod fine, if Mitt wins that’s fine too, no matter who wins Obama will lose or the economic trouble now is just beginning. God, please save our Constitution as we do all we are able to fight for what is right and true.
