2012 Kansas Caucuses

Well, he's gone and done it again. Rick Santorum threw another wrench into Mitt Romney's plans for the nomination by seizing a victory in the Kansas Caucuses today. As I mentioned in the comments on the last post, the Daily Beast had an article about the delegate math and how Romney needs to capture > 50% of the remaining pool. That didn't go so well today as Kansas is one of the few doing winner-take-all.

Here are the results:

Rick Santorum - 51% (15,290 votes, 30 delegates)
Mitt Romney - 21% (6,250 votes)
Newt Gingrich - 14% (4,298 votes)
Ron Paul - 13% (3,767)

Delegate Totals to Date

Mitt Romney: 441 delegates.
Rick Santorum: 214 delegates.
Newt Gingrich: 107 delegates.
Ron Paul: 46 delegates.

1,144 required to win.

But Romney did take Wyoming, didn't that help him out a bit as well?

       
Huh? Wyoming went on Super Tuesday, not last night. It was only worth 4 delegates. Unless I'm missing something here.

       
I had thought so too, but yesterday I got a breaking news alert in my email from AP:
Associated Press said:

Romney wins presidential delegate vote at Republican county conventions in Wyoming

Is this something different?
