Mississippi Presidential Primary Results

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/13


Mississippi and Alabama both have their Primaries today. And both, being South states, are must-win states for Newt Gingrich.

As of 9:58pm local time, Mississippi results are Santorum 32.8, Gingrich 31.7, Romney 30.1, according to AP. Ron Paul, that nut-case, is at 4.3. 1104 of 1889 precincts reporting.

Presumptive front-runner and absolute squish Mitt Romney is in third place in Mississippi.

Correction: Mississippi is Central Time and not Eastern Time, times will reflect that in future updates.

As of 9:16pm local time, the polls show Santorum 32.7, Gingrich 31.5, Romney 30.3, with Paul trailing far behind at 4.4. 1331 of 1889 precincts reporting. The presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney trails both of his more Conservative opponents, showing Romney’s very difficult time in the Conservative South.

As of 9:26pm local time, Santorum leads with 32.7, followed by Gingrich with 31.7 and Romney with 30.2. 1492 of 1889 precincts reporting.

As of 9:32pm local time, Santorum continues to lead a tight three-way race with 32.8 percent of the vote. Gingrich is second with 31.6 percent of the vote. Presumptive front-runner and moderate squish Mitt Romney is in third place with 30.1 percent of the vote. 1521 of 1889 precincts reporting.

Mitt Romney cannot win the South against two more Conservative candidates.

As of 9:39pm local time, Rick Santorum continues to lead the balloting at 33.0 percent of the vote. Newt Gingrich, another Conservative, comes in second at 31.4 and presumptive front-runner and moderate squish Mitt Romney trails in third place with 30.1. 1601 of 1889 precincts reporting.

This is a good day for TEA Party Conservatives and a bad day for the Republican Establishment.

As of 10:02pm local time, Rick Santorum still leads Newt Gingrich 33.0 to 31.3, with Mitt Romney trailing in third with 30.2. 1722 of 1889 precincts reporting. Santorum leads the other Conservative choice Gingrich by 4,000 votes and the Moderate Establishment choice Romney by 7,000 votes.

As of 10:15pm local time, Rick Santorum still holds a sizable lead against the other Conservative in the race, Newt Gingrich, 33.0 to 31.4, with the Moderate Mitt Romney trailing in third place at 30.2 1759 of 1889 precincts reporting. Santorum continues to lead Gingrich by 4,000 votes and Romney by 7,000 votes.

As of 10:31pm local time, Rick Santorum holds an insurmountable lead over Newt Gingrich, 32.9 to 31.3. The Establishment choice and presumptive front-runner, the Moderate squish Mitt Romney is trailing in third place with 30.3. Oh, by the way, the absolute nut-case, the anti-Semite Ron Paul has 4.4 percent of the vote. 1800 of 1889 precincts reporting. Santorum leads Gingrich by 4,300 votes, Romney by 7,100 votes and Paul by 78,200 votes.

As of 10:50pm local time, Santorum continues to hold his insurmountable lead over the other Conservative in the race, with the Moderate Establishment choice still trailing in third place and the nut-job getting the booby prize. Santorum leads Gingrich 32.9 to 31.3, with Romney at 30.3 and Paul at 4.4. 1854 of 1889 precincts reporting. Santorum’s vote lead is 4,500 over Gingrich, 7,500 over Romney, and 79,800 over Paul.

As of 11:22pm local time, with 1859 of 1889 precincts reporting, Santorm holds a commanding lead over Gingrich, with Romney trailing in third place. The tallies are 92,315 for Santorum, 87,797 for Gingrich, and 84,909 for Romney.

Romney was not expected to win the South, but I highly doubt he was expected to lose to both more Conservative candidates. And Gingrich had to win in the South to remain competitive. At this time, Gingrich needs to take one for the team and let Santorum have the Conservative vote to prevent the squish Romney from winning.

    Starting to feel hopeful.

    That’s never a good sign.

  2. The fly-over North was Santorum territory. The South was Gingrich territory. The Northeast and the Pacific West was Romney Territory. If Gingrich cannot win the South against Santorum (while Romney trails in third place), it is time for Gingrich to step out of the way so the Conservative vote can coalesce around Santorum to defeat the utterly unacceptable Romney.

    But I don’t know if that’ll happen.
