Super Tuesday 2012 election results

The day that could have decided the GOP candidate to face Barack Obama in 2012, pulled Mitt Romney a step closer to the nomination, but ultimate victory is still not a lock.

Romney won 6 of the 10 states up for grabs on Super Tuesday, but Rick Santorum is still breathing down his neck.

Santorum took North Dakota, Tennessee and Oklahoma, and gave Romney a run for his money running a close second in the battle ground state of Ohio.

As expected, Newt Gingrich won his home state of Georgia.

Ron Paul went home without a victory. However in the head-to-head face off in Virginia, Paul claimed 40.5% of the vote.
