Along with addressing each candidate's viability for the nomination, the story also used polling data to examine what Republican voters are looking for in their presidential nominee:
"A plurality of Republican voters in both Michigan and Arizona said the most important factor to them was that a candidate be able to beat Obama in November."
Since Romney was the big winner this week, the article looked at how the delegate numbers looked so far and what Romeny would need to do to clinch the nomination.
"He (Romney) had 123, compared to 72 for Santorum, 32 for Gingrich and 19 for Paul. It takes 1,144 to win the nomination at the Republican National Convention in Tampa next summer."
As the numbers show, while Romney is currently in the lead, this race is far from over. And next Tuesday, it will still be far from over. Even if Romney wins in every state that holds elections next week (highly unlikely), he will still have only 582 delegates to his name, just over half of what he needs to gain the nomination. The fun has only just begun, and it will be very interesting to see what the race looks like this time next week.
