Once again Mitt has come through when it mattered most. After ten contests, Mitt has won 6, Santorum 3, and Gingrich 1. Mitt’s popular vote totals dwarf his competitors, and he has shattered the alleged 25% ceiling. For a guy that many said couldn’t appeal to conservatives, he’s appealing to conservatives more than anyone else.
Here’s the fundamental reality: Mitt is competitive everywhere, while his opponents have proven that they can only win states when they pick their spots. There is still a long road ahead, but the momentum is ours.
