Despite the efforts of the Obama Democrats' organized campaign to turn out and vote for Santorum in Michigan, Romney rolled to victory last night in Michigan and overwhelmingly won in Arizona. According to the exit polls of CNN, Santorum would have received less than 33% the Michigan vote without the "help" of the Obama Democrats voting for him. Romney received 41% of the Michigan vote. It's now obvious that Romney is determined to "slug it out" and has the money and organization to run a 50-states campaign--something that neither Santorum, Gingrich, nor Paul can do. This is not good news for the crazy wingnuts, Rush Limbaughs, etc., in the GOP. But it is good news for the educated, thinking, moderate, rational, and reasonable voters, AND good news for the USA as a Romney nomination will give Obama a "competitive" campaign instead of the landslide Obama would enjoy with Santorum, Gingrich, or Paul as the GOP nominee.
Finally, last night again showed that Romney's key strength is among women voters. Women are giving Romney the decisive edge in every state he wins. Michigan vote by gender according to CNN exit polls:
Men: Romney 39% Santorum 38%
Women: Romney 43% Santorum 38%
Next week, "Super Tuesday"--GOP primaries in Georgia, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia; plus GOP caucuses in Alaska, Idaho, and North Dakota.
