All in all, it wasn’t a horrible night for Romney and I think he has the momentum. But the problem is that this wasn’t a knock out punch for any of the other candidates.

Those guys will just continue to grab delegates Romney needs to secure the nomination since most of the upcoming contests are proportional primaries.

In fact, of the top 3 biggest contests yet to come, both New York and Texas are proportional. California is winner take all. But even worse for Romney…Texas is May 29 and California is June 5!

We’re in for a long ride folks.
