Monday Morning Politics - But a New Game on Thursday

After Nevada. The headlines after Nevada were Romney wins Nevada, Gingrich vows to stay in the race. After it was all said and done, Romney had 48 percent of the vote, Newt Gingrich had 23 percent, Ron Paul had 19 percent and Rick Santorum had 11 percent. This is a clear cut victory for Romney, but it means more that Gingrich and Santorum are runing out of money, than it does that Romney has won 3 out of 5 states as of Monday.

Many more states to go, and the safe bet is on Romney to eventually be the Republican nominee,...maybe after 2 more states or it may take 6 more. But he certainly has the momentum, the organization and the money to come out on top.

Then comes Wednesday night with Santorum winning Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado,...three out of three states. Is this a game changer? I think what will change for sure is the main target of attacks for next two weeks. Hope Rick Santorum is prepared for this.

One more thing for sure,...Santorum now has the wins and the numbers to call on Newt to get out of the race as Gingrich did to him after Newt's South Carolina. That would certainly give Santorum a bump going into the next set of states.

Oh and Ron Paul? He said the results from last night "mixed things up" in the Republican primary. Really? Ron Paul has not won a state and his highest finish is second place,..usually fourth place.

Minnesota results:

Rick Santorum 45%
Ron Paul 27%
Mitt Romney 17%
Newt Gingrich 11%

Missouri results:

Rick Santorum 55%
Mitt Romney 25%
Ron Paul 12%
Newt Gingrich was not on the

Colorado results:

Rick Santorum 40%
Mitt Romney 35%
Newt Gingrich 13%
Ron Paul 12%
