Some interesting facts about the numbers, courtesy of a poster at Cougarboard.com:
- Romney will likely beat McCain by the same total number of votes that McCain got in his only victory.
- Romney will beat Mike Huckabee by more votes than all of Huckabee's votes from all states combined.
- Huckabee won 34% of the vote in Iowa, McCain won 37% of the vote in New Hampshire, Romney gets 39% of the vote in Michigan. It's not likely that anyone else will get close to 39% at least until Super Tuesday.
Taking second in Iowa and New Hampshire while winning Michigan seems to indicate Romney is resonating with voters across the board.
And honestly, the only thing people have against Mitt is his faith and a label of "flip-flopper."
Someone outline where the "flip-flopping" label comes from. I'm serious, I have yet to hear a valid argument that solidifies this claim, yet everyone and their dog is throwing it out.
Should be a bumpy ride from here to September.
