Ron Paul: Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney Are

USA Winner in six states during Super Tuesday, Republican to win just yet

It was hoped that the race would change . Rather, it is here to stay. Tuesday, Mitt Romney won six of the ten polls of Super Tuesday, and a majority of delegates at stake, but the three victories of Rick Santorum remind: Romney is a favorite fragile.

Not surprisingly, Mitt Romney has emerged in the east (Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia and in Idaho and Alaska). Still, Santorum continues its breakthrough by winning three states: North Dakota, Oklahoma and especially Tennessee. The most important election of the evening, Ohio, turned in a knife duel between the two candidates, equal to almost perfect. Romney finally won by a hair, with just over 10,000 votes ahead (1%).

"The worst" of primary

Santorum has nearly the equal spending five times less than his opponent. If he had not lost much of votes for women after his outings on contraception, it would probably have won. However, no Republican has ever won the White House without a victory in that State. In front, Newt Gingrich is struggling, with only one home win in Georgia. The second primaries. In his speech, he ruled out throwing in the towel. The next elections in the south, could enable him to do it again, provided that its wealthy donors do not abandon. For his part, Ron Paul continues to nibble delegates, but has no chance of winning the nomination. To be invested, it is necessary 1144 delegates. Taking into account projections of the evening, Romney is over 350, against 150 to Santorum, Gingrich and 90 to 60 to Paul. With a race that turns into a marathon and attacks are increasing, some Republicans are worried. The former first lady Barbara Bush, 86, ruled that the primary was "the worst" she had ever seen.
