-- -- that big win in Illinois last night that Romney's campaign calling for his opponents to drop out now suggesting.
It would be better for the country because of allow Republican voters to focus on beating the president come November -- -- from me.
You and I know something the president still hasn't learned.
Even after three years and -- hundreds of billions of dollars of spending and borrowing.
We're gonna face a defining decision as -- people.
Our choice will not be about party.
Or even personality.
This election will be about principle.
Our economic freedom.
Will be on the ballot we know what Barack Obama's vision is we've been living -- these last three years.
But my vision is very very very different.
Ed Rollins has worked as campaign manager for -- number presidential campaigns that makes an experience.
I including Reagan bush and 84 Mike Huckabee Michelle Bachmann and good morning to you -- Now -- Fox News contributor were taken care of your round hero -- you do in the Kia.
-- keep duly noted.
What about Romney in Illinois have big league win no question the big when I mean he's now on our role as campaign organizations working very very well.
You know I think the only issue that I would raise with him is -- spending forty plus million dollars beat the daylights out of his opponents and -- real opponent should be.
Barack Obama in the fall is that -- Treasure chest or war chest that can be well built back up again it would that the danger spending forty million dollars beaten up your opponent to use alienate some of the people that -- desperately need in the fall.
And I think that's the war I would have.
That that may go to voter turnout let me get to that a little bit here but here Romney's strength most likely to beat Obama in November Romney checks -- At 60%.
Illinois other strikes moderates 51.
College graduates 53%.
More than a hundred grand a year 56%.
Seniors almost a majority there 49%.
Catholics in Illinois 53%.
And the Tea Party supported 47%.
Tells you what.
Well as consistency -- was vote -- the rural areas still voting for Santorum and the more conservative voters but he speed day by day is is adding people.
To his his list and that's that's very important as Howard now when I get to Newt Gingrich here this is what he said late last night about where his campaign goes -- I'm staying in the race because I really do think it's a question of who can beat Barack Obama.
I think the case I'm making on gasoline.
The case I'm making on an American energy policy is effective.
What is his strategy now.
How to let's stay relevant I don't know still stay on TV -- certainly not relevant as a candidate and an -- is seeking a fourth place yesterday.
So you know he he can stay in all the way -- camp that he wants to but at the end of the day he's not gonna add many more delegates.
Rick Santorum was in Gettysburg PA last night -- to the home turf that won't vote for a couple more weeks ended April I do believe when he sixth of April thereabouts.
He -- what does this do to him at Louisiana lurking this week -- is that -- Louisiana.
And then the probability is he will do much better in Louisiana he he's had great appeal to the southern voters.
As as Romney has had to them to the northern midwest voters.
The key thing for him is he just doesn't have the resources or the organization to compete everywhere.
And it's getting harder and harder for him to basically make his case in general do you agree the case that -- -- making about Republican voters having a clear choice at the moment.
They have -- any others to get this -- well they have they have they have a clear choice but it's not his prerogative to.
Tell other people have to get out.
Mike Huckabee stayed until after.
McCain had these significant number to be the nominee.
And I think that's what tests and torment them to this time Romney Ohio narrowly wins but it was a victory won in Florida he won in Virginia when in Michigan.
And now wins in Illinois and there's some of these are critical battleground -- the Romney campaign is running on all cylinders I think I think at the end of the day the the only thing I'd say is this these negative attacks are basically alienating some of the base and certainly and alienate both Gingrich -- sandstorm.
That he needs to come together and in that -- -- of the -- Illinois had fantastic weather.
Perhaps record setting yesterday in the eighties.
But the voter turnout is said to be a record low.
-- that tell you people are bored with this race and they're tired of the negatives and they basically don't see that it really matters.
And I think the intensity we see it in the ratings on.
Our shows around here that that they're way down people losing interest in it.
And somehow he had to turn people back on again and that's going to be more of a positive or at least a campaign against the president and as opposed institute in your view and based on your history does that portend.
Anything toward -- turnout in November.
-- -- a totally different race I think at this point in time this thing has seemed to drag on forever and I can tell you as someone that's been active for forty years on getting bored with this race.
I -- -- over I want to come model -- come are ready for the fall and this is lets -- all I want Hollywood this I think you'll for a I want every them over I -- get to the far different you can find something interest ideas and a number I still I still watch it but it's it's not that that's it you know I wish we make them make -- -- case against the president does funny things to me.
-- -- the states here and there may be different headlines today Czech -- that's what god made tomorrow's by the -- would get another chance of the beautiful -- Ed Rollins junior effects.
