Is this good news or bad DG7?

I know you like Romney, but I am finding hard to believe that winning by 7% over Santorum is a good thing. Romney is not looking very strong to me.

I will be surprised if he beats Santorum by that much, but why do you say it won't be a good think for him, I think it would almost be the iceing on the cake...

A few points:

#1 There is some evidence that money doesn't really win elections. Read Freakonomics and the studies done on spending and elections.Ultimately they have toi like one guy more than the other. It is possible that simply as people get to know Santorum they dislike him more and more. People flocked to him as a "true conservative," but a lot of his comments scare off voters once they know him. Look at Pennsylvania, the people who know him best...they voted him out of office by an 18 point margin.

#2 How much is he really outspending Santorum by? In Michigan after you through in the PAC $$$ and the Obama/Union adds against Romney the money was equal.

I'm watching the CNN coverage and early exit polling looks like it will be an all nighter. Going off of what I saw, my initial belief is Santorum will win.

I also believe Santorum will win Tennessee.

Just voted, I am in Ohio, the polls were definitely not as busy as normal, and I saw a lot of empty signature lines when I signed in...

It will not surprise me to see Romney win Ohio, and if he does, Sanatrium is toast. Ohio has more favorable demographics towards RP than many of the remaining states will. 200 delegates tonight for MR, and the lead will be too large to ignore. Especially since with Newt likely to take Ga, it will put MR well above whoever comes in 2nd. My hunch is 2nd will be closer to 3rd, and as close to 4th, as to MR in 1st, for tonights delegate total.

If this were a horse race, it would be listed as Romney and the field. Individually, none of the others merits serious attention as a viable candidate, barring a shocker tonight in aggregate where someone else gets 200 delegates.
