A Definitive Night for Mitt Romney
Five states up and Mitt Romney knocks 'em all down with at least 56% of the vote. The Gingrich threat in Delaware managed half the votes of the winner, and Rick Santorum's dream of beating Romney in the senator's home state of Pennsylvania garnered a bit less than a third of the Romney votes. If Santorum needed a message plainly saying, "it's over," he got one last night with a mere 7% in CT, 6 in both Del and RI and a 9 in NY. The New England states of Connecticut and Rhode Island gave Romney 67 and 63 respectively. New York supported the former Massachusetts Governor with at least 61%. Gingrich who had considered Delaware "crucial," has agreed to reassess his candidacy now that he was defeated so handily. Ron Paul just rides along with yet another respectable range from 11 to 24 in RI With the playoffs over and the World Series about to begin, the Michigan native will gather with his top aides in Boston for "serious meetings" today. They'll be formulating a transfer of the primary campaign to a general election plan to defeat the incumbent, President Barack Obama. Part of the plan is already evident with advertising endorsements of well-known national figures such as Marco Rubio and Rudolph Giuliani. Romney team members are looking deeply into all aspects of the Obama Administration. Since the public considers Obama a good family man, the Romney campaign will accept that but attempt to demonstrate Obama as too weak to get the nation out of the current economic mire. "Nice guy, but failed and weak leadership."
