Across The 13 Electoral (Non-Caucus) Contests Romney Averaging 39.8%.Shows Need For Brokered Convention/Unity Ticket



As the list of the 13 contested at the ballot box states shows Mitt Romney averages below 40% of the popular vote. That poor result includes his home state blow out of 72% in Massachusetts and the near solo run in Virginia (where Ron Paul even managed 40%). 


His average across the caucus states is even worse at 31.1% Thus his overall result is 36.45%


This with all the money he has spent the Super Pac mass attacks on his opponents and the backing of the establishment and which still hasn't enabled him to put a way Santorum who is running on the smell of an oily rag.


It is starkly clear that on these results the rank and file, the heartland, the Reagan democrats the true conservatives prefer someone else. That the someone else is not Rick Santorum, Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich,who seem to have no path to the required number of delegates to get the nomination at this point is also clear.


The best result from super Tuesday was that it was no result beyond keeping Santorum in the race through enhanced credibility and giving Newt a chance to rack up more wins in the Deep Southern States coming up.


Thus the possibility of an anything can happen brokered convention is still alive.This is the best thing to happen as it is the only chance to get a ticket out there that will unite the party for the November election. It also has enabled Sarah Palin to tonight advise she is willing to be part of that unity ticket.
