Romney Wins Ohio But Santorum Still Has A Chance

Although the Republican presidential nomination race hasn’t been exactly interesting to follow, the bid for the 2012 elections have been just like a rollercoaster. Candidates went up and down in polls, and voters have awaited the results just as enthusiastic as the GOP members in the race. The Super Tuesday was supposed to clear the air and result in an unbreakable favorite to the nomination.. Although Romney won Ohio, Santorum still has a chance to win the nomination.

Mitt Romney, currently the favorite Republican to win the nomination for the presidential elections has hit the jackpot during Super Tuesday. Virginia, Vermont, Massachusetts, Idaho, Alaska and Ohio were a complete success. However, despite scoring such great results, Mitt Romney is still unable to shake off his number one opponent, senator Rick Santorum.

For Rick Santorum the Super Tuesday wasn’t exactly as successful as it was for Mitt Romney, but his results were enough to show that the former Massachusetts governor still hasn’t convinced all voters he’s got what it takes to enter the presidential bid against Barack Obama. Santorum won three caucuses as voters in Tennessee, Oklahoma and North Dakota gave him their support.

When looking at the Ohio results the struggle between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum becomes clear. As Associated Press reported, Romney had 38 percent of the vote, while Santorum was close by, at just one percent distance.

Last night in Steunbenville, Ohio, Rick Santorum appeared before his supporters. He stated: “We’re going to get at least a couple of gold metals and a whole passel full of silver medals. We’re ready to win across this country”.

Meanwhile, in Boston, Mitt Romney was delivering a similar speech to his own fans. “We’re on our way. I’m going to get this nomination”.

Analysts say that even though Romney’s win wasn’t exactly bullet proof, it will be enough to boost support among voters. Jon Green, a professor of political science with the University of Akron told Bloomberg: “A win is a win, even it’s a close win and even if it’s not really pretty. I think the winner of Ohio will likely get a boost, even if it’s a very slim win, and a loss is a loss”.
