2012 Washington Caucuses

Well, that's one more down. Mitt Romney scored another solid victory tonight on the build up toward Super Tuesday. It's slowly starting to look like his nomination to win, for better or worse. However this ends up playing out we really do need to buckle down and decide on someone. So long as that someone isn't the lunatic Ron Paul.

Anyway, here's the results for Washington, 100% precincts reporting.

Mitt Romney - 38% (18,771 votes, 30 delegates)
Ron Paul - 25% (12,248 votes, 5 delegates)
Rick Santorum - 24% (11,935 votes, 5 delegates)
Newt Gingrich - 10% (5,175 votes)

Delegate Totals to Date

Mitt Romney: 187 delegates.
Rick Santorum: 82 delegates.
Newt Gingrich: 32 delegates.
Ron Paul: 24 delegates.

1,144 required to win.

Super Tuesday is Newt Gingrich's last chance and where he's staked his strategy. One can only hope he manages to pull it off, but it isn't looking good. Things have come out in such a way that he'd need to more or less sweep the day which doesn't seem likely. So once more we're probably looking at getting stuck with a candidate that's not the best choice to go up against the Democrats in November.

Well. I guess that's that then.

That's quite a lead that Romney has on the others at this point, but it's still a pretty far cry from 1,144 delegates. Guess we've got two more days to see how the Grand Ol' Party will play this coming November. So far it's been quite a roller coaster ride and we've already lost several candidates in the process. Personally, I'm not entirely convinced that Perry dropping out was a good thing, especially so early into it, and I'm not entirely convinced that Paul isn't delivering an important message to us all through the fact that despite his extremism he's still holding significance in these elections along the way, one that we need to be listening to. Sometimes I really have to wonder if these primaries, if not the big election in November itself, isn't more beauty pageant than anything else. *sigh*
