Romney may finally put this away tomorrow, when 10 states hold their Republican primary contests. Mitt Romney has now won five Republican contests in a row. Since Rick Santorum’s surge, Romney has won caucuses and primaries in Maine, Michigan, Arizona, Wyoming, and Washington.
And that momentum is showing in the final polls going into Super Tuesday.
On February 27, Quinnipiac University released a poll showing Santorum with a 36 – 29 per cent lead over Romney. This morning they released another and it showed Romney leading Santorum 34 – 31. That is a 10-point swing.
Here’s Quinnipiac’s Peter Brown explaining the result: “To borrow from the book of Berra, Yogi that is: It’s deja vu all over again for Gov. Mitt Romney. Just as he did in Florida and Michigan, Romney has erased a sizable deficit a week before the primary to grab the momentum in the final 24 hours. A week ago, Quinnipiac had Sen. Santorum ahead by seven points, now it’s Romney by three – a 10-point swing in seven days. The margin makes the Ohio race too close to call, but Romney is the one with the wind at his back.”
Santorum may win two or three states, and Gingrich looks like he is in a good position to win Georgia but, according to politics-number-cruncher Nate Silver, Mitt Romney is poised once again to achieve a solid majority of delegates in the four man race.
