In 2008 Mitt Romney won Maine. He also won Colorado and Minnesota. So, out of the ten states he won in 2008, he is one for three. That means, so far, he has only won 1/3 of the delegates in the states he won in 2008. Yet, the MSM continues to push him as a front-runner. The math is against the Mittster.
Maine Republican Primary Results 2012:
Mitt Romney: Votes: 2,190 39%
Ron Paul: Votes: 1,996 36%
Rick Santorum: Votes: 989 18%
NewtGingrich: Votes: 349 6%
Maine Republican Primary Results in 2008:
Mitt Romney: Votes: 2,837 51.67%
John McCain: Votes: 1,176 21.42%
Ron Paul: Votes: 1,002 18.25%
Mike Huckabee: Votes: 318 5.79%
Looks like Ron Paul was the real winner in Maine, doubling the number vote count from 2008. Romney lost about a third of his popularity in Maine. Hardly a victory. He was also the clear victor in 2008. In 2012 its almost a statistical tie with Ron Paul, with only a 194 vote difference. Romney has to be in panic mode.
The real stunner will be what each of those votes cost the Romney Campaign in terms of money. Romney had raised 58 million dollars as of December 31, 2011. (Source) Paul had raised about 26 million. That figure does not count the Super Pacs.

Since Ron Paul relies on his Grass Roots campaign more than money and ad buys, Romney could have very well spent over $1000 per vote in Maine. If Bain capital owned the Mitt Romney Campaign, they would have taken it public in December, dumped the stock in January, and closed down the company in February. Mitt Romney for President has to be one of the worst investments in History.
Now, it is being reported that Mitt the Ripper is a little short on cash and hitting the fundraising trail once more. If he had any true friends they would cut him off from the financial black hole his campaign has become.
Willard Mittens Romney has won only 123 delegates so far. His Super Pac paid $146,341.00 per delegate!
Super Tuesday is coming up soon and Mitt Romney, according to my projections, will pull about a third of the delegates from those states as well. Once again, this is looking like a brokered convention, with all of the current Republican candidates failing to get more than a third of the delegates. You would need to be at 50% plus 1 to win on the first ballot at the convention.
That means it goes to a second ballot and anyone can throw their hat into the ring. Jeb Bush will emerge and win that second ballot and all will go according to plan. The trifecta for the Bush dynasty.
In the above video, I give a state by state analysis of Super Tuesday with my projections for winners in each of the states.
Ron Paul is the right choice, but most people in this country can't seem to grasp the difference between a Constitutional Republic and an Evil Empire. Hail Caesar in 2012. It looks like the Empire strikes back. Coming up:
