Mitt Romney’s buttons are probably popping off his starched and stiff dress shirt this morning.
In Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., Romney posted wins in those three contests on Tuesday. This is shaping up more and more to be “his” GOP race with Rick Santorum in a not-even-close second place.
Even in the closely-watched Wisconsin race, Romney was still able to pull away with a 42-38 percent share of the votes compared to Santorum. In D.C., Santorum didn’t make the ballot.
Do you think the third and fourth place candidates, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, dropped out considering Romney’s momentum? Why of course not! It makes absolutely no sense to me why those two are still in the race. I feel like they are holding up progress.
Of course, Romney leads the latest delegate counts, according to CNN. He has a commanding lead of 654 to Santorum’s 270. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul hold 137 and 71 delegates, respectively.
The next major contests the foursome have to look forward to are in the “Yankee Primary” on April 24 — including Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, and Delaware.
