Who is going to clean up on Super Tuesday?

Well, in just a couple of days, we stand a good chance of knowing who is going to be named the Presidential Candidate by the two parties. At this point a lot of people have dropped out (Fred and Rudy for example), so in my mind there are only two candidates from each party that still have a chance. Hillary Clinton and Obama on the Democratic end of things, and Mitt Romney and McCain on the Republican end (I don't think Ron Paul stands a chance). I feel that it is a toss-up who is going to win big on the Democrat side of things--I am hoping that Obama does, but I fear Hillary might. On the Republican side, I think it is going to be McCain. So what do you think?

I honestly havent been paying much attention lately to the politics and all of that stuff because honestly it doesnt interest me at all but the parts that I have heard it seems like everyone is behind obama is going to be the one to win...because for one oprah is behind him and every woman in america seems to like her so they will vote for him because of that...and two hulk hogan is behind obama and then every american gladiator and every wrestling fan in american will prob vote for him...so im guessing obama

Honestly American citizens should not vote on the merits of Oprah or Hulk Hogan that is what is wrong in our government most people don't vote for the best canidate but for who has the most followers.

I seriously doubt that people are voting for the president based on Oprah and Hulk Hogan. I think more women are interested in Hillary Clinton than Obama, at least that's what our news reports shows us here in California.

Yes, I don't think Romney has a very good chance against McCain because too many people have already endorsed McCain. Between Clinton and Obama, I think it's a coin toss. Only time will tell...

Sadly I don't think Ron Paul is going to make it this time. He would be my number one choice if he did though. The only commercials I've been hearing caucus wise is Obama'a and I'd vote against him just so I wouldn't have to listen to them any more! Who ever made that commercial must have been TRYING to annoy every one. I'm not sure I'll get to the caucus. Since we're in Idaho our vote isn't all that influential. I don't think candidates worry too much about our votes.

Yeah, I think Ron Paul is too far behind McCain and Romney now. He may hove to follow in the steps of Fred and Rudy and concede the nomination. As for Obama, even if you find his commercial to be annoying, if his commercial is the only one you're seeing or hearing that means the other candidates don't even care about your state. All the other candidates don't feel you state is worth their time or money, whereas Obama's campaingers think your state does matter so they are purchasing commercial time.

That is one thing I can say about Obama, he does seem to care about my state (Colorado). He was the first to open up a campaign office here.

lol the only candidate with much of anything other than a radio in Idaho is Ron Paul. Maybe next election though. Us little states will just have to hang in there I guess.

I don't think Super Tuesday is going to be as cut and dry as most think. While I don't trust polls, the polling results are showing Senator Clinton and Senator Obama splitting the Super Tuesday delegates. I do believe this race will extend past Super Tuesday. I think that in the end however, the Clinton machine will still win. The Republican race may however be over after the votes are tallied Tuesday night. I think McCain will win the nomination simply because of the media frenzy surrounding him. A novice voter, not willing, or knowledgeable on how to do their own research, will see the McCain rise in the media and base their vote on that. Unfortunately, a lot of novice voters will vote based on who they think is going to win anyway.

Do people actually fall for the media frenzy (in either the Democratic or Republican race)? Wouldn't a media frenzy actually irritate people, and make people even more motivated to go out and vote the way THEY want to?

Well I am actually voting for Obama. I do not want Hillary to become president, she scares me for some reason, and I am a woman. I have been listening to liberal and conservative radio. Conservatives don't like McCain, they want Romney to win, and they are upset that Huckabee has not dropped out because his conservative voters would vote for Romney, they think that he's going to take as much delegates he can get and pass them to McCain because he is so against Romney's Mormon background. If McCain wins the primary for Republican I would vote for him over Hillary. But I for sure want Obama to win the Democratic primary, cause I'd vote for him for pres. I don't know between Hillary and Romney--I need to do more research on that guy.

I am not sure why I am uneasy about Hillary, but I am. I just read an article where it says: - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to have workers' wages garnisheed if they refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans. That is a scary proposition, considering that my business is struggling and I can't make ends meet as it is.

I to am so afraid that Hilary will win on Tuesday. Actually I'm afraid she is going to win the whole thing and become president. There are too many women in this country who are into womens rights and are just waiting for a woman to be president. I personally don't think Obama has a chance against her. As for the Republicans I think it's going to be McCain. Romney has too many enemies.

It is not the women rights people that I am afraid of; it is Hillary herself that I fear. I am not sure what worries me about her, but there is something not right there.

I agree with you on who is going to be our candidates I really don't know who I want to win I have mainly always voted Democrat but this time I don't care for either one so I may just switch and vote for McCain not sure yet I know I need to make up my mind in the next day or two.I also fear Hillary might. Have a great day!
