Rick, you’ve been Romney’d
All the headlines this morning are blaring “RICK SANTORUM WON THE DAY AND YES I’M SHOUTING!!!
But they are wrong. As it turns out, even in Mississippi where Santorum got the most votes, Mitt Romney walked away with more delegates that poor Rick. In fact, yesterday Romney ended up with 43 delegates and Rick Santorum got only 36. (Newt Gingrich got 24 and Ron Paul got 1.)
That’s what happens when you have rich friends who are Superdelegates and you and your SuperPACs outspend your rivals by leaps and bounds:

And yet Mitt still can bring it home, can he?…
