Wragge yeah I still think I got the best seat in the house I'm here with Karl Rove these so called architects and I know you don't like that phrase but I'm gonna call yet I like it better when you dropped to so so -- -- -- -- The architect of George W Bush's victories in 2002004.
And Joseph Trippi.
Campaign manager for lots of candidates lots a years.
And you could be the architect to.
We've been talking a lot about these exit polls and see what we can make of them -- seems to me.
On one level -- this pretty straightforward the top quality that voters were looking for.
Was electability to be able to beat Obama 45%.
Said -- and Romney beat -- -- like 25 points.
Among those voters the top issue the economy 62% -- Romney beats -- looks like twenty points -- How -- a victory and how much of a boost going -- for Ron well pretty command.
-- because the groups that Gingrich one can be counted on the fingers of less than one hand and we know very -- self described very conservative voters.
The white born again evangelicals who were smaller -- vote here than in South Carolina and he barely carried those and then very strong supporters of the Tea Party.
But even for example among all conservatives Romney beats Gingrich among all Tea Party supporters Romney beach Gingrich.
So I mean it's it's a pretty widespread.
Economically every group demographically every group of very strong showing tonight.
Job it's a big win -- there's no no doubt about it and he needed it because they took it gives him some momentum but the second thing it does when you look at some of these exit polls and -- the question about we are they.
Happy with the field or not there's still a lot of people out there -- the 38% he said they.
They wanted someone else the inner the -- in the field and a lot of over a third of those people Romney's own supporters somebody -- -- gonna get back to this question of the people who want somebody else to get in a minute but let's let's focus on Newt Gingrich.
You've basically got about as -- is a third of the party it's about 30%.
35% who -- date as you say they identify themselves says.
Strong not just Tea Party -- that strong Tea Party support not just inserted very conservative.
That's his base how does he build on that and particulate that that they came out with the FTC numbers -- that the money on hand.
Gingrich has two million dollars in hand but he's got a million dollars in -- so he's got less than a million dollars really eight cash on hand.
Romney's got nineteen million so given that huge money disparity.
And this sizable but still very much a minority base how do you build on.
Well I don't think you do what he did last week which was -- through the same couldn't Mitt Romney going out yesterday calling Romney a pro abortion liberal.
Who and who in Florida thinks that.
Who's not already in the Gingrich camp and what he ought to remember what brought him here and the difficulty is is -- getting back from where he is angry at Romney.
Throwing the kitchen sink -- -- -- coming up with every adjective and every -- -- -- described him.
And -- and instead going to here's my vision is a difficult thing to do and and and looking at his numbers he's in bad shape fondness.
A personal opinion of -- of -- 761 want personal opinion of of Gingrich.
-- satisfied if you were the nominee.
Today we've seen both people be very popular in -- people be acceptance that number so.
You agree without that he should stop.
Attacking Romney I mean obviously -- this to some degree but sell milk more is that he's got to do something and we if that's what was working -- before the problem he's got now it's literally more people in the sexson pulled.
Voted for him.
Because they -- somebody else in the race -- knows people want someone else in the race more than -- more news vote voted for that vote or are in that category.
Then satisfied with the field which means they're not satisfied with him his own birdies -- there is a message of discontent it is an -- vote for Romney so you vote for duke but not necessarily subordinate right and -- still sizable pieces size of this electorate but not big enough.
It takes to get you near the holiday let's let's talk about -- I -- -- people American.
You know as we looked at it was a striking number -- much higher than in other states and particularly dislike.
Of the people of the exit polls said they would like to see somebody else gotten a crisis not just a function.
This has been a very nasty personal campaign and there have been.
Twenty million dollars worth -- negative advertising.
-- do you think that there it is some underlying dissatisfaction.
With -- -- -- I'd have to see more once did I think part of it maybe that does this is the home of Jeb Bush there -- a lot of people on Florida's there was Jeb Bush was trying to suspect we've seen the same kind of number and India and I don't wanna make too much but it just one statement.
But the disquiet -- of my among Republicans is probably grown because all these guys are going after each other.
And even if you end up voting enthusiastically for your choice -- -- -- you know that would stop and if not that somebody else would stay real quickly -- That I think that's the whole thing right now a lot of the people who say they're satisfied.
Are voting for other candidates they're voting for Newt Gingrich they're voting for Paul they're voting for Santorum may be in smaller but -- are huge its size of that satisfied group.
What happens when it's Romney he's got to start pulling this together and him running round and just need new king -- Isn't gonna do daddy spears and he's got to make a sale -- one darn bit of sale that's evolved from absolutely absolutely.
We're gonna have lots more to talk about tonight and particularly.
We're already talking about what that Romney and Gingrich should say and shouldn't say -- -- have the two drama critics -- we'll talk about that later.
I thought you might be gone for drama queens there I'm glad that wound up critics I thanks Chris if we went from why is -- drama that -- I literally eminently.
