2012 Arizona and Michigan Primaries

The great sea-saw of the Republican primaries has swung back in Mitt Romney's favor. With wins tonight in Arizona and Michigan, he extends his delegate lead - though not by a huge enough amount to run away with anything. Rick Santorum still gave him a good run and is still nipping at his heels. This isn't over yet and probably won't be for some time. Unless you happen to be Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul. So lets move onward to tonight's results.

Arizona Primary - 80% precincts reporting

Mitt Romney - 47% (212,736 votes, 29 delegates)
Rick Santorum - 26% (118,654 votes)
Newt Gingrich - 16% (72,688 votes)
Ron Paul - 8% (38,023 votes)

Michigan Primary - 95% precincts reporting

Mitt Romney - 41% (402,297 votes, 5 delegates)
Rick Santorum - 38% (370,671 votes, 5 delegates)
Ron Paul - 12% (113,746 votes)
Newt Gingrich - 7% (63,903 votes)

Delegate Totals to Date

Mitt Romney: 157 delegates.
Rick Santorum: 77 delegates.
Newt Gingrich: 32 delegates.
Ron Paul: 19 delegates.

1,144 required to win.

Next up, Washington state. After that, the big day arrives. Super Tuesday, March 6, 2012. Where 10 states will hold their primaries. With 437 delegates up for grabs there, anyone who takes the majority of them is likely to win the nomination. If things end up splitting too much, we could be looking at a brokered convention in August.

Well. I guess that's that then.
