Mitt Romney has been projected the winner in Ohio with 38% of the vote to Santorum’s 37%. While many analysts consider Romney to be the GOP candidate, we think Rick Santorum will keep fighting to stay in the race. Right now, Romney has much of the momentum, winning most of the moderate vote as well as the least decisive voters. It seems like most voters who aren’t sure who to vote for going into Super Tuesday ended up picking Romney over Santorum. Romney is seen as a safer choice and has a better chance of beating President Obama in November.
Santorum though, is holding out for all the conservative voters, who are currently splitting the vote between Santorum and Gingrich. For all the money Romney has spent in this race, he is still having a hard time convincing the far right that he is the right candidate for them. It should be interesting to see how much the tides change when Gingrich inevitable falls out of the race and his voters are left with one conservative to vote for.
Here’s how the candidates stand as of 9:55pm PST:
It’s Super Tuesday today, and 10 states are up for grabs by the GOP presidential nominees. Here’s a breakdown of the results thus far:
Rick Santorum is currently in the lead in Ohio, widely considered to be the crown of the night. A win for Romney would increase his momentum tremendously, especially with his three-state sweep last week. Although Romney lost Ohio in 2008, many voters view a vote for Santorum as a vote for Obama. Romney is the more viable candidate to many GOP voters, despite their concerns regarding his previous stance on health care and immigration. We will be updating again towards the end of the night with a recap of the results.
In a recent debate, Mitt Romney decided to change up his usual routine and open it up with a joke. The crowd responded very well and was actually laughing, to which Romney responded with a reference to the show Seinfeld: “When they’re applauding, stop.” Although it was a gross paraphrase of the actual line, at least he’s trying. In the article below, the author comes up with 7 other Seinfeld references that are a way better fit for Romney, it’s good for a few laughs…
Which line fits Romney best?

Now look at this no one would ever have thought that sports and politics would merge. But I guess in the 2012 elections anything is possible. According to NBA Greats Assist Obama in 2012 Campaign Fundraising written by Casey Gane-McCalla, “Vince Carter held a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in his mansion in Orlando, Florida.” Here players paid $30,000 just to attend the meeting and it hosted not just players such as Magic Johnson, Chris Paul and Alonzo Mourning. But had the NBA commissioner David Stern and Mark Cuban in attendance.
With having such big names in the mix how would this not set a bias for other voters who are currently in the predicament on who to vote for and the right reasons. I feel with campaigns such as these involving celebrities add a huge advantage not just, for their financial support but the demographic that, they reach and effect in the long run. Personally, I feel that politics should be separate from everything else mainly regarding the entertainment industry. But as the world becomes more digitalized and media becomes the main source of power people will always lean towards their heroes they see on the screen and take their word rather than doing the research themselves.
