It’s Super Tuesday and ten states are in play for the Republican primary. Well actually, as of publishing time, it’s now Not-So-Special Wednesday. Here’s a quick rundown of the winners.

Georgia goes to Gingrich 47.2%
Tennessee goes to Santorum 37.2%
Virginia goes to Romney 59.5%
Massachusetts goes to Romney 72.2%
North Dakota goes to Santorum 39.7%
Vermont goes to Romney 39.7%
Idaho goes to Romney 61.6%
Oklahoma goes to Santorum 33.8%
Ohio goes to Romney 38%
Alaska goes to Romney 32.4%

Romney: 6 states
Santorum: 3 states
Gingrich: 1 state
Ron Paul is Ron Paul

Ohio wasn’t called by the networks until after 12:30am. Mitt Romney won by 1% or just 12,000 votes. There is no question that it was a big night for Romney with wins in 6 states, but with Rick Santorum’s 3 victories, the GOP primary appears far from over.

Total delegates needed to win the Republican nomination is 1144.

Delegate counts:

Romney: 415
Santorum: 176
Gingrich: 105
Ron Paul is Ron Paul … ok, 47 total

1541 delegates remaining

    That Ohio ‘win’ was barely that — or as DailyKos puts it: Romney is getting weaker with every win.

    • So true. He did win pretty big on the delegate count, however, but it still might not be enough to ultimately get him to 1144, and that’s when things will probably get really interesting. 🙂
