Although there is still a long way to go to the Republican National Convention, the candidate's nomination must reach this force seems sung decision: Mitt Romney today enjoys a strong bias to achieve it.

After its victories in primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, on Tuesday last, few analysts predict a victory for any of the rivals of former governor of Massachusetts. should a disaster occur Rick Santorum to reach the coveted position and become who measured in the polls to President Barack Obama in November.

Mathematical calculations indicate that it is unlikely that the former senator from Pennsylvania reach $ 144 delegates needed to display the approval of the elephant party. could be that between now and June 26, when they place the last partial queries in Utah, Romney does not get a quorum.

In that case, to get to the appointment of 27 to 30 August in Tampa, Florida, candidates should release the accumulated candidates and conduct a new election in which could subscribe to any of the contenders.

This would be almost the only opportunity for Santorum to win favor with conservatives, but that possibility could correspond to the former leader of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and Texas legislator Ron Paul, now far away crest position.

With the credential virtually in your pocket, Romney's team tries to give the final blow the next day 24, when Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island and New York made ​​their primaries.

The candidate's electoral machinery of faith Mormon seeks at all costs to conquer the country's northeastern state of his native Santorum, as a defeat there would decree about leaving the race. Under such conditions, Santorum, the only candidate who professes Catholicism, announced that it will rest this weekend Easter week devoting himself to the state for which he served as a senator.

A day earlier, the applicant met with a group of conservative movement leaders and finalized details of the strategy to remain in contention, the newspaper reported Hill. Although "a meeting was realistic," he never discussed his abandonment, but rather the emphasis was on tactical movements focused on improving their slim chances of getting the nomination, said the newspaper.

Such stratagems would even convince Gingrich leaving the competition in favor of the former senator, said. For now, the "heavyweights" of the conservative wing who have opted for Romney: former President George HW Bush and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and the Tea Party, among others and blow the candles on the former governor for his ship arrives in port as soon as possible.
