Super Tuesday 2012 Live Blog!

By and

Four hundred and thirty seven delegates. Ten states. Four candidates. Two bloggers. One hour of sleep? This ... is ... Daily Intel's Super Tuesday Live Blog!

Welcome! Tonight, a handful of the most politically attuned voters in ten states across the country will give an enormous boost to the presidential hopes of either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum, or, theoretically, even Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul (but probably not them!). Join us as we chronicle this majestic spectacle of democracy.

Ohio has been called for Romney, who will win by about 1 percent. Yikes.

In non-presidential news, Dennis Kucinich has lost his primary challenge to Marcy Kaptur in Ohio's redrawn 9th district. Goodbye Dennis.

"Why didn't they spend some more money in Ohio?" - Wolf Blitzer asks of Santorum campaign. What money???

Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:17 Dan Amira
11:16
Dan Amira: 

And it is a win, officially. But in terms of What It All Means, a win that small against Rick freaking Santorum means you're struggling

Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:16 Dan Amira
11:14
Jonathan Chait: 
The media treated it as a win when they thought Romney had won Iowa by like 8 votes. But I do think the flow of the evening has implanted a Santorum-entum storyline.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:14 Jonathan Chait
11:13
Dan Amira: 

Romney is up by 5,000 votes out of over 800,000 cast 

Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:13 Dan Amira
11:12
Dan Amira: 

Let's be real though: When you're talking about a 1% difference, it's basically a tie. 

Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:12 Dan Amira
11:05
Jonathan Chait: 
Sounds like everybody has Romney ekeing it out in Ohio.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 11:05 Jonathan Chait
11:04
Jonathan Chait: 

What do you do now if you're Newt? Here's what I do: Talk to Romney through back channels, and see what I can get in return for staying in the race and splitting votes with Santorum. An appointment, access if Romney wins, help from his rich friends, whatever. Now, is Newt actually doing that? I have zero evidence. But it's not like he's above it. And if you game it out, the one chip Newt has is his value to Romney (and the pro-Romney establishment) as an oppositions-splitter.

Oddly enough, Romney is dominating Idaho. 

Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:53 Dan Amira
10:52
Jonathan Chait: 
Look at the major primaries coming up. Saturday: Kansas. Tuesday: Alabama, Hawaii, Mississippi. March 17: Missouri. Santorum could have a really strong run coming up. This is looking like a long, painful slog for Romney.

Even if Romney pulls out a win in Ohio, the margin of victory will likely be too slim to impress anyone/change the race's narrative in his favor.

10:43
Jonathan Chait: 
I have been at that point for two years. I could never imagine Romney winning, but I couldn't quite see any of the opponents, either. But I've been sitting on Romney-wins-by-default since Florida.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:43 Jonathan Chait
10:39
Dan Amira: 

We're kind of at a point where you can't imagine how Romney will win this thing, but you also can't imagine Santorum pulling it off, and you also can't imagine the GOP plucking someone out of thin air (Christie, Daniels, etc) at the convention either.

10:39
Jonathan Chait: 
noamscheiberMy prediction on OhioRomney proclaimed winnerlate tonightIn Junewe will discover that Santorum really won.

Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:39 Jonathan Chait
10:37
Jonathan Chait: 
I think we'll get more Republican panic stories, maybe a little more sofa change for Santorum's campaign, and a longer primary campaign, which is significant. I still can't see Santorum winning this thing. When has such a sad sack candidate run such a sad sack campaign and won? It's a Chris Dodd '08-caliber campaign. Romney will stagger to Tampa leaving a trail of blood.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:37 Jonathan Chait
10:30
Dan Amira: 
So, Jon, let's say Santorum wins Ohio. (Forget Alaska and Idaho, who cares.) What does the world look like tomorrow?

Dan Amira: 

OHIO WATCH: Santorum still up 38-36 with 72 percent of the vote in. Santorum is up by 15,000 votes, and the margin hasn't been getting any smaller

Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:27 Dan Amira
10:20
Jonathan Chait: 
Chuck Todd is reminding people that Romney will win more delegates in Ohio even if he loses the vote, because Santorum failed to field delegate slates in several counties. It is insane. It's like winning a heavyweight title by pulling some drunk out of a crowd at a bar to fight and winning a split decision after 12 rounds.

...despite an overwhelming financial advantage.

Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:16 Jonathan Chait
10:11
Dan Amira: 

To summarize: Romney has won his home state (MA), a liberal state that borders his home state (VT), and a state where his only opponent was Ron Paul (VA). He's lost everywhere else. 

Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:11 Dan Amira

Santorum wins North Dakota.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:09 Jonathan Chait
10:08
Jonathan Chait: 
Good summary from David Frum:

Has the Republican Party gone on strike?

Tonight's message: Outside the Federalist heartland and the peculiar Virginia ballot, Republicans won't accept Mitt Romney. Against such a weak field, for Romney to be battling to carry Ohio is deeply, deeply ominous.

The donors all made up their minds months ago. The rank-and-file are refusing.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:08 Jonathan Chait
10:06
Jonathan Chait: 
Most recent exit polls in Ohio dead even. Remember the first round had Romney up 4 points.

Dan Amira: 
Romney's speech is one, long meaningless string of platitudes.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:02 Dan Amira
10:00
Jonathan Chait: 
Romney, in his speech, has defined his economic plan almost entirely as tax cuts: Marginal income tax cuts, "death tax" repeal. It's pure George W. Bush redux.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 10:00 Jonathan Chait
9:57
Jonathan Chait: 
Romney says that Obama cares about unemployed only as a means to winning reelection, whereas Romney genuinely cares. I really have a hard time seeing him getting a lot of people to believe that.

Hard core vote counting math geet Dave Wasserman tweets:  Surprisingly weak showings for Romney in major metro OH precincts...things looking great for Santorum at this point.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:41 Jonathan Chait

Team Romney clearly nervous OH is not going their way, getting the candidate out much earlier than many of us believed

Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:38 Jonathan Chait

Santorum sums it up. They keep saying he's "finally finished." But "we keep coming back." I think that just may be the narrative.

Jonathan Chait: 
Santorum doing riff about how, due to Obamacare, all Americans now dependent on government. "Once government has control of your life, they gotcha." But weren't we already dependent on government programs like roads, police and courts?
Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:27 Jonathan Chait

Jonathan Chait: 
Santorum: "They preserved liberty by sacrificing..." Long pause. Was sure he was going to say "virgins."
Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:24 Jonathan Chait
9:23
Jonathan Chait: 
Santorum correctly notes he's been massively outspent everywhere. But that's going to continue to be the case! So what is your plan?
Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:23 Jonathan Chait

Jonathan Chait: 
But Rove says the big urban areas still need to come in and they will swing it to Romney.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 9:17 Jonathan Chait

Let's say what many folks may be thinking who have access to exit polls: Santorum support understated all over the place

"The bias of the elite media." -- Gingrich
Tuesday March 6, 2012 8:54 Dan Amira
8:53
Jonathan Chait: 
Gingrich keeps attacking "the establishment." I think that could resonate if voters didn't get that he's talking about the Republican establishment. I'm guessing most Republican primary voters feel at least somewhat okay about the Republican establishment.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 8:53 Jonathan Chait

Jonathan Chait: 
Also Obama so far getting more votes than the GOP candidates combined. More Dems show up to vote in an uncontested primary than Republicans voting in the most important race in the country? Really?

Line from Romney's speech later tonight on the long campaign ahead: "And so it will go, day by day, step by step, door to door, heart to heart." Reminds me of Obama's line from 2008: "Block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand." 

Tuesday March 6, 2012 8:07 Dan Amira
8:06
Jonathan Chait: 
Strange quirk in Ohio exit polls. Asked their opinion of how government is working, those who say they're "dissatisfied" go for Santorum 40-37. Those "angry" go for Romney 39-31. Opposite of what I'd expect. I also think the polls should have finer gradations, with categories like "enraged" and "flecked with spittle."
Tuesday March 6, 2012 8:06 Jonathan Chait
8:03
Jonathan Chait: 
Apparently the exit polls now show just a 1 point Romney margin in Ohio. Surprising.

Polls close in Massachusetts, Mitt Romney wins. So far, he's won his home state, a state where the only other person on the ballot was Ron Paul (Virginia), and hippie-ass Vermont. #unimpressed

Dan Amira: 

Newt Gingrich isn't on the ballot in Virginia, but CBS News projects that he'll win anyway.

Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:30 Dan Amira
7:22
Jonathan Chait: 
Chris Wallace says that Romney can boast that he can beat Obama because he won Virginia, which is a swing state. I'll let it go that he's conflating the ability to win a state primary contest and the ability the win a state in the general election. Does he realize Santorum and Gingrich were not on the Virginia ballot? Because I'm pretty sure Obama will be on there in November.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:22 Jonathan Chait
7:20
Dan Amira: 
Finally, with Virginia. The suspense was unbearable for a moment there. 
Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:20 Dan Amira
7:19
Jonathan Chait: 
Fox News calls VA for Romney. Shepard Smith explains that they didn't call it before because they exit polls showing 60-40 for Romney, and then "it tightened up." Um. Maybe need to brush up on the math there.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:19 Jonathan Chait
7:13
Jonathan Chait: 
Dave Weigel on Twitter says the Virginia exit polls show Romney with 63% of the vote. Too close to call, sheesh. I trusted you, Fox News!
Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:13 Jonathan Chait
7:10
Jonathan Chait: 
Fox News reports Virginia too close to call so far. Interesting! Did the Santorum and Gingrich fans really turn out to vote for Paul and deny Romney? That's hard to pull off with no organization.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 7:10 Jonathan Chait
7:05
Jonathan Chait: 
Wow, Vermont Republicans are super moderate. A majority call themselves moderate or liberal. Do they get national news outlets up there? Are they aware with recent developments in the party?

Mitt Romney is expected to do better tonight in terms of delegates than total votes. Guess which metric he's emphasizing.

Jonathan Chait: 
Do you think that Sheldon Adelson is funding Newt as a favor to Romney? Split the anti-Romney vote? Romney is pretty fortunate that his opposition is still splintered. He'll never have been forced to go one on one with a more right-wing challenger, even a crappy, disorganized dirt poor one.
Tuesday March 6, 2012 6:58 Jonathan Chait
