Well the states remain quite high as we head into Super Tuesday who takes a lead after the votes are counted and what impact will this battle on the raced against the White House.
Joining us now radio host mark Davis and -- Nixon with their insights on the super sized showdown gentlemen welcome great to have you here thank you.
-- about hi there let me Begin with you mark you have a large listening audience and you're fighting that folks are.
Also want on the fence with some of these contenders at this moment there -- a -- of dissatisfaction with some of the GOP.
What do you think's going to -- emerge as the front runner after Tuesday's vote.
-- obviously here's here's the complete give up answer but it's the accurate answer look at -- what real voters do in those real states met Ronnie carries the momentum in from his Michigan and Arizona wins.
But there's still more people.
The number of people voting for -- voting for Ron Paul voting for Santorum will be bigger than the vote from that.
So the real question coming out of Super Tuesday is -- -- be got Rick Santorum will be Newt Gingrich who emerges as a more viable conservative alternative to net.
We have guard the president's approval ratings as I mentioned earlier are on the rise and many are saying that the mudslinging between the GOP contenders is turning off independents.
Who are critical in the general election.
What impact do you think this is gonna have on Super Tuesday if at all.
Well -- first I'll -- I think there is some cautious optimism.
On on the left.
But I do think that -- one of the issues to consider what Super Tuesday and and and moving forward as the women vote -- polling after the Michigan election.
Showed that one of the reasons the governor Romney won was because.
That Rick -- was losing the women vote and I think the question is has he hurt his brand so much.
That he won't be able to win very many contests in the future and if he were to go into the general election would -- be in a position where the the the GOP wouldn't have a chance to win because of the issues going on now with contraception etc.
That the new questions about what what he can do regarding the the female vote mark -- -- you say that.
I would hope if if Rick Santorum is our nominee -- open and have to waste a whole lot of time.
Describing the obvious that that president Rick Santorum is not gonna -- ripping the contraception out of anybody's purse.
These are issues of liberty in the far more important issues are about jobs and the economy in the Republican nominee is going to be talking about jobs and the economy and not so much about fringe issues.
Let me ask you this gasoline prices are huge concern right now.
Do you believe that was Super Tuesday is behind -- that Republicans need to make this a key campaign issue and -- make.
As crisply the argument that the White House is this.
Possible for the high prices mark.
I'm not wholly responsible -- -- President Obama sand is that he hasn't done enough to help bring gas prices down -- is hostile to American energy exploration is hostile to Keystone Pipeline.
Both of these things simply announcing that that -- that that we were -- things up for domestic energy exploration is the kind of thing that brings prices down.
In this White House actually is enthusiastic about higher gas prices -- that forces us.
Toward the end of the Green technologies they -- -- Well got to what are your listeners telling you what the high gasoline prices are they -- the White House for the high prices and are they worried.
About the future.
Well I certainly don't think defaulting the the the White House mostly what I hear is the the usual the things about speculators I think the GOP would be of it would be a mistake for them.
To jump on this gasoline issue because one of one of the reasons that Mitt Romney has been successful.
Is because he's had a consistent argument.
If they you know if they throw all of their rigs in the and in -- high gas prices basket and then in fall in the fall they drop you know they precipitously move up and down.
Then they stand to lose a lot so I think the consistency is the issue they ought to be concerned with and high gas prices have been anything gas prices have been anything but consistent over the last.
You but really quickly down and mark number one issue for your listeners the economy right.
It is absolutely and that's such a broad thing the economy is really for five issues its gas prices I think Garland is right you don't put all the eggs in that basket -- -- is one of the many basketball at.
But it's also about wasteful Washington spending it's about the failed stimulus -- about bailouts it's about taxes and spending being too high so you that the economy with a -- that's what's gonna settle things in nova and Garth how important social issues right now to your lesson.
-- -- there and what they are important in that I think 11 thing that's happening because I have a lot of was very left leaning this is but some some of the independents I think what's happening is.
That the GOP seems to be veering to the right and I think they're scaring the independence and the and the senator towards us which we're certainly happy about -- -- not very good talking about the view and of course we're going to be keeping close watch on what happens come Super Tuesday and we appreciate your insights.
Thank you and I.
