Who will "survive" Super Tuesday?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Anyone care to make any predictions about who will still be in the running tomorrow, and who will be out of the race?

I think McCain, Clinton, and Obama will still be clear contenders, i.e., the Republican candidate will be clear after today, but the Democratic one won't.

I think you are correct.

That means that the American Public have spoken and Immigration is not high on their agenda.

I'm going to wait for the official voter results.

I should have set the poll to close after one day, then.
ETA: I've changed it.

CNN is predicting that Huckabee has won in West Virginia: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS...gop/index.html

I forgot to include Mike Gravel (D) http://edition.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008...ke.gravel.html in the poll, but I guess that doesn't matter much.

I agree. Should be interesting.

I agree with you on this.

There would essentially be three Democrats that emerge as the clear contenders. The Republican party doesn't have a strong candidate, McCain is a Republican in name only.

I agree. There will be a liberal in the White House. Hang on to your pocketbooks.

I don't even really care about the election now.

Oh, I don't know. He's followed the Republican line on some issues, like abortion, health care, Iraq, and (Bush's proposed) immigration (reform). He seems to be a candidate who is trying to move the Republican Party back to a more centrist position. Ditto Hillary, with the Democrats, as she's moved farther "right". If those two become the actual contenders, I think that will be a signal to both parties that they've drifted too far to the extremes.

Obama seems particularly attractive to young voters and Independents, which also points to rejection of the status quo.

I think you are right on this - originally I thought Romney might still be in it, but it does seem unlikely.

I don't see the Clinton/Obama choice being clear until after the Convention. They both keep surprising us.

As for McCain, he'll probably be a shoe-in but I've never been good at predicting the behavior of Republicans.

I just got home from caucusing in Kansas. There were so many people that showed up, that they had to move the entire group from a church to an outside park. If you look at the weather map in Kansas City, we're in the middle of a major storm. I wouldn't be surprised if the news coverage of our group makes national news - look for Olathe Kansas or Johnson County Kansas. I'm the one with the brown coat and a scarf wrapped around my head. People showed up without coats and stayed.

So after 2 hours of standing in the mist, then sleet, then snow, Obama won by a landslide. We never got the numbers, but estimated that the final vote was about Clinton-50, Obama-2000. About 1000 people or more left due to the bad weather.

After all of that, I have to root for Obama.

I heard that both Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter stated that if McCain won, they would vote for Hillary, and Coulter went as far to say that she would campaign for Hillary.

Time for some hot chocolate. I'm still shivering.


ETA: Just caught the local news that showed our caucus. They expected 100 people and got 3000. The other precinct expected 500 and got 4000. The total projection for the state was 10,000 and the number is at 33,000 and rising. I guess people are interested!!

Romney made the announcement on the news tonight that no matter what happens, he's staying in.

I'm agreeing with you Tricia. The clear choices will be Hillary, Obama, and John.
post #15 of 17
Wow Amy, that's impressive!

I have to say that I'm surprised with Huckabee's showing, and the lack of Romney's showing.

I do like McCain for exactly the reasons Tricia stated. McCain hasn't always been a true blue GOPer, but I notice that no one has mentioned his key role in getting the bi-partisan group together that eliminated the Dem's ability to filibuster the SCOTUS nominees. This country has been getting more and more polarized and extreme in the political realm for candidates for 16 years. The country NEEDS someone who can bridge the chasm to actuallt get things done for the people, not just to show off how extreme the leaders of either party are, and get very little passed.

(Gosh I hope all that made sense..I am on painkillers, so if it doesn't that's my story and I'm sticking to it! )

I am agreeing with you and I will vote for McCain.

Clinton is doing much better than I ever imagined. I think she is going to go pretty far. I voted for her in the Iowa caucus and I'm a delegate for her for the next caucus/whatever it is comming up in march.
