Tuesday night as polls were coming in, it became clear that Mitt Romney would be the victor in both Arizona and Michigan.
Beating out Rick Santorum in Michigan looked to be a real challenge for the front-runner; however, he was able to edge out Santorum by 3 points. Not a large margin, but a victory none the less.
The numbers out of Arizona on the other hand, largely favored Romney as he lead by double digits. Taking Arizona gives Romney another advantage. More delegates to add to the count.
Unlike Arizona, Michigan is not a winner-take-all. It is likely that Santorum and Romney will virtually split the 30 delegates from Michigan.
Leading up to Super Tuesday next week, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich trail farther and farther behind. And, looking at the states that will be up for grabs, it looks even better for Romney and worse yet for Gingrich and Paul. Santorum could fair well, but it isn’t likely.
