The former governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney won the Republican primaries in Maine. On the same day it received the most support in the survey, vote Conservative Conference (CPAC) in Washington.

In Maine Romney won 39 percent of the vote - more than twice the former senator Rick Santorum, who recently won the primaries in three states. Santorum was in Maine, only 18 percent of the vote, ahead of him even from Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Newt Gingrich won the support of only 6 percent of the voters.

Romney's victory in Maine and his win in the survey, the vote (the straw poll) at a meeting in Washington says right now, as a signal about his possible return to the unquestioned leader in the race for presidential nomination in the Republican Party (GOP),.

After his defeats in the states of Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri on the last Tuesday there were voices, that Romney's nomination is still a question mark.

He does not enjoy popularity among many Republican voters, especially the right-wing of the party. However, it puts the GOP leadership, because polls show he has the best chance in the elections in the confrontation with President Obama.

The next primaries will be held until February 28 - this time in two large and important states of Michigan and Arizona.
