Here’s a thread to discuss it.
If you dare.
[ROLLING UPDATES: Romney is projected the winner. As things look now, he may even get a total percentage similar to the combined totals of Gingrich and Santorum.
In Romney's acceptance speech (going on right now), I noticed one smart thing at the outset: he warned Democrats that a tough fight like this won't help the winner: it will prepare him. Then he's gone on to talk only about Obama, and to repeat the magic pledge to repeal Obamacare.
More reflections: Florida is a primary in which Independents can't vote, so the results there represent Republicans only.
Apparently, the polls were correct.
Quite a few of Gingrich's recent attacks on Romney have been attacks from the left: he's a Bain vulture, he invested in funds that included Fannie/Freddie, and he's a cost-cutting meanie who nixed kosher meals. I'm trying to think of any time that Romney attacked Gingrich from the left, but I can't come up with anything. I think that's telling. It undercuts Gingrich's claim to be the real conservative.
Listening to Santorum's speech, it occurs to me (and not for the first time, either) that he may be positioning himself for the VP spot.
Oops, in Gingrich's speech, he isn't being kind to Santorum. He says the race is a 2-person one between him, the "conservative leader," and the moderate Romney. Gingrich goes on to cast himself a populist (it'll be a "people's campaign") and predicts he'll be the new comeback kid (no, he doesn't actually call himself that, but that's the idea).]
