The Song Remains the Same

Super Tuesday is drawing to a close.  Ohio is still too close to call, but a narrow Romney victory seems inevitable.  Mitt will have won 5 or 6 of the 10 races by the end of the day.  Santorum will probably have 3, and have battled Mitt to a near draw in Ohio.  

The end result?  Mitt still seems inevitable.  His delegate lead grows with each set of contests.   However, for a candidate who seems to be the prohibitive favorite, his lack of across-the-board appeal to Republican voters has prevented him from winning clear and decisive victories.  Florida remains the only hotly contested state where Mitt won a decisive victory.  Mitt continues to be a weak front runner.

Luckily, the silver lining of Mitt's weakness as a frontrunner is that his opponents will soldier on.  And that means more opportunity for him to, hopefully, figure out an effective way to connect with middle and working class voters.  'Cause it's still not working for him.
