Now it’s time for Romney to win one. This one being the Maine caucus. He won 39% of the vote with Pon Paul in second place with 36%. Romney also managed to win the CPAC straw poll with 38% against Santorum’s 31%. By number of delegates, which is the only number that really matters,Romney is way ahead with 98 delegates. Santorum is in second place with 44, Gingrich in third with 32 and Paul last with 20.
There is some question whether or not this long, hard-fought primary campaign is good or bad for the GOP. I have a feeling that the millions of dollars these candidates are spending to attack each other might be better spent against Obama. Still, it’s a whole lot more interesting this way.
