Its Super Tuesday, how is your candidate doing. Personally I like Huckabee, but he appears to be overall a distant third.

Focus Online in Germany is saying that Hillary's chances of winning Super Tuesday are becoming slimmer. However, regardless of who wins Super Tuesday, it may still not be enough to obtain a significant lead in the delegate count, which means it may all come down to the final primaries/caucuses after Super Tuesday and just before the Convention. So even though this IS Super Tuesday, the Clinton vs Obama race may become even closer after tonight.

I've heard of Super Delegates, but I have no idea what they do. Can anyone explain what those Super Delegates are?

It appears Huckabee has won the West Virginia GOP convention. An odd way of doing it, I think. Almost like those "Superdelegates".

I voted in Maricopa County, AZ this morning. Largest county in the state.

Voter registration deadline was January 7. I registered online the day after the Iowa caucuses (technically I changed my party from a previous registration). I got my updated voter registration card in the mail about ten days ago or so and got my correct party sample ballot a day earlier. So, I went to the polling place and noticed an unusually high number of people being sent over to vote provisionally. I, however, was fully expecting to be on the list as I had my card and had gotten the right sample ballot in the mail. However, I was not on the list! My old registration had been crossed off but my new one had not been added. As it turned out, in order to be on the voting rolls, I had to have registered before January 1, despite the official deadline being January 7. I too had to vote provisional along with half of the other voters. In five days I find out if they counted it or if they completely disenfranchised me.

I registered before the deadline and over a month ago. I should darn well have been on that list.  whistleblower   gnasher

Alex , you are not alone . I voted in Pima (Tucson) county this morning , same thing happened to me and I re-registered in 2006 just to change my address. My name was on the list but they had my address from 2 years ago !! , so I had to vote provisional. The same thing happened to the guy in front of me , he was really pissed !
The poll worker told me that the provisional may not be counted !. I already wrote a letter to a local radio station here ,, they are trying to keep track of the voters this has happened too.

These people are planning on taking care of my health care .... Please.  flamed

I also supported a local wheel tax of $50 per vehicle. If it does not pass the property tax will be upped a percentage. I believe taxes should be user based.

McCain/Lieberman 2008!




When McCain takes the GOP nomination, I think he'll take 'Mighty Joe' Lieberman for VPOTUS.

So far, Obama has won Georgia for the Democrats, while on the Republican side of the Georgia primary, the race is too close to call although McCain is leading.

And on a curious note, in the West Virginia caucus, McCain got a whopping 1% of the vote, with Huckabee actually winning with 52%!  Wow!

Obama now got only 3% of the vote in Alabama, though the race is still too close to call. It is true what people said, that after Super Tuesday, the race will still be too close to call.
