Arizona & Michigan Last ThoughtsBefore I shut down the lap top for some much needed rest (for me as well), here are some final thoughts on tonight's primary battles in Arizona and Michigan, which were both won by Mitt Romney.
1. If the current vote totals from Arizona hold up, Romney will have won the state by both more votes, and by a bigger percentage then Senator John McCain did in 2008. Quite the political coup if I say so.
2. Romney is in position to win Michigan by forty thousand more votes then he did in 2008, when not even McCain seriously challenged him in his home state, while his percentage of vote is also a couple points better as well, even though more Democrats crossed over to influence the vote then last time.
3. The Associated Press now has Romney at 157 delegates to Santorum's 77, while Gingrich, and Paul linger far behind. The key point is that Mr. Romney is 11% of the way to securing the nomination and with him the favorite to win over half of next week's primaries, that margin is going to getter better as time goes on.
What say you?
