Dave Weigel, Slate political reporter and MSNBC contributor, and Karen Tumulty, national political correspondent for the Washington Post, talk about Super Tuesday, the delegate race and the role of women voters and other key demographics.
The local reporters from the individual states were sad. Uninformed, didn't know answers to obvious questions (like why is Santorum having a victory party in a place where he's not on the ballot, and not getting Brian's joke about Georgia being anti-gov't yet having .gov on their license plates. Brian you put them to shame, you need better people to work with!
It was mentioned on the show today that Oklahoma has an overwhelming "conservative" electorate. I think that "hypocritical" electorate would be a more accurate discription. They have the highest divorce rate in the country. See here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44308315/ns/business-personal_finance/t/oklahoma-tops-list-highest-divorce-rates/#.T1ZoCnmK0dU
What are the features that tend to distinguish so-called conservative states from the moderate and liberal states? I suspect that poverty, ignorance, alcoholism, mean-spirited attitudes toward "others", selective religious principles, and dependence upon national subsidies would all tend to be higher in the conservative states.
Mark Rehnstrom,I would be curious as to why you left and what age you are.
why is it a caucus if different states have different rules...thats what are different states...Ron Paul 2012.
I am wondering if Romney would have sewed up the nomination long ago if he weren't Mormon. Having been involved in fundamental Christianity years ago, I was taught that Mormonism is a cult. It is the gorilla in the room that no one wants to talk about.
Caller from Duluth, GA - Are you insane? President Obama's Administration does not NEED to cause a distraction, the Repubs are doing a great job themselves..are you serious? The infighting and all the debates are a joke!
A wounded romney keeps march on. A divided GOP will not show up for him in the fall.
