Happy Leap Day everyone!
Kevin has been dealing with some computer problems lately, so I’ll be posting the open threads until he’s back. He may be needing to buy a new machine. But rest assured, he is working on some fun and exciting initiatives that I’m sure he’ll reveal to all of us soon!
So Mitt Romney pulled out a victory in Michigan and Arizona last night. The current delegate count is:
- Romney: 163
- Santorum: 83
- Gingrich: 32
- Paul: 19
Hunstman also technically has 2 delegates if anyone cares.
Up next is a Caucus in Washington State on March 3rd, and then Super Tuesday on the 6th.
Super Tuesday should be interesting. The two biggest wins – Georgia and Ohio – are currently trending heavily in favor of Gingrich and Santorum, respectively. That was yesterday’s polling, before Romney won Michigan and Arizona, but Romney trailed by 10+ in both states. Tennessee also has a lot of delegates up for grabs, and Santorum currently leads that state by around 20 points. Oklahoma is also trending pretty solidly in Santorum’s favor at the moment.
I have no idea about Newt’s plans, but Super Tuesday is going to be a big loss for Gingrich unless he is able to make a serious turnaround in the next week. As of right now, it looks like the GOP nomination is shaping up to be a two man race between Romney – who will probably come out of Super Tuesday with a slight edge overall – and Santorum, who is currently positioned to have a big night come March 6th.
Of course, the political winds blow hard and change quickly. What do you all think?
