  • Romney’s big victories in Wyoming and Michigan the last two nights have netted him…. one more delegate than Rick Santorum.

Actually the Republican party guys (credentials committee or whatever) just voted to give Romney 16 and Santorum, ignoring their own rules about delegate allocation. http://politicalwire.com/archives/2012/03/01/michigan_republicans_change_delegate_allocation.html
So a little hanky-panky nets Romney 3 more delegates from WY and MI total.

And Romney also swept the delegates in Arizona, which makes the three states overall a big win for him.

Also note that we don’t know yet the WY results — we only have the straw poll at the initial caucuses, which may or may not predict who the delegates selected there will support in the next round, which is where the eventual delegates come from. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if Romney (and Ron Paul) improve as the process continues there.
