    The man has NO legislative accomplishments, NONE. The people have made it clear, get lost.

    No question it's going to be romney, but will he get 1,144 delegates? We will likely wait until September to find out...He has most of the hard delegates, which gives him a soild advantage.

    Not to mention the results from Spokane County haven't come in, and that's a fairly populous portion of the state and believed to be "Ron Paul country." So we'll see if he can't close the gap a little further even if he can't win at this point.

    Well we can't technically know how many delegates anybody has considering most of the states haven't chosen their delegates yet. However, it's widely believed that Ron Paul has more people in the running to be delegates than Santorum or Gingrich.

    We'll see how well Romney does in the general election when the supporters of the guy getting trounced don't vote for him.

    That is because you support Paul. 2nd place is a step up for him! And a distant second, losing by double digits in a winner take all state is getting trounced!
