Hold on to your horses. Bound delegates and national polls suggest Romney will get to 1144.

No. He's not in it to win the nomination or even really to win delegates anymore.

He will stay in because of his ego.

I hope so, but my gut says no.

There won't be a second vote at the GOP convention.

Romney has to win less than half of the remaining delegates I believe. It would be virtually impossible for him not to win this outright when you consider all the winner-take-all states that he is virtually certain to win. What concerns me though is that the Romney who wins this will be an even more damaged Romney with Santorum winning states here and there, getting cocky, and spouting off with a bunch of anti-Romney crap.

It also concerns me that the Romney campaign (and the pro-Romney Super PAC) will have to spend even more money trying to fend off Santorum when that money needs to be spent on the general election campaign.

What I found amusing, is CNN reporting that Saintorum even won the Liberal vote today!! Liberal vote, in Loosiana Repub primary? I wonder how many people that would be? If there was 1, I would be surprised.

They combined liberal and moderate vote into one category, and pointed out that those who consider themselves moderate in Louisiana are likely a bit more conservative than other states.

If Romney needs 25% to get some delegates, it is looking good for that.

I don't think Santorum will have momentum from this by April 3rd and I think Romney could go 3 for 3 that day.

Where did you get the information about the uncommitted delegates from?? Looking at Green Papers, it says its unclear what will happen with any remaining/ unrounded delegates
