Romney's Big Night

Whether or not Mitt Romney wins Michigan tonight, this is a good night for him. Romney started the night with a 99 delegates to Santorum's 47, a lead of 52. When the night is over his lead will grow to approximately 143 to 62, a lead of 81. Further, he will have amassed 55% of the delegates available to date. Romney is competing in every state, but no one else is. He will get the nomination because he is better organized. On Super Tuesday, his advantages will become clear, and he will build an even bigger lead. He starts that day with about a 49 delegate lead, as neither Santorum nor Gingrich will be on the ballot in Virginia. It's hard to see why their is so much breathless drama on the TV about all this.

Yes, I am supporting Mitt Romney. I might have preferred other candidates, but they didn't run. Running for President isn't for the faint of heart. We shouldn't count it against Romeny that he is making a serious run for a second time.
