Romney Wins Washington. Three Days Till Super Tuesday.

AP has called the Washington State Caucus for Mitt Romney with about 36% of the vote. The anti-Romney vote was split mostly between Ron Paul and Rick Santorum who each claimed about 25% of the vote.

The vote was marred by a mishap in Kennewick, Washington were about 1,500 voters were turned away for lack of sufficient space.

This coming week is "Super Tuesday" with Primaries or Caucuses in 10 states.

  • Only Romney & Paul are on the ballot in Virginia and Massachusetts, so Romney is favored to win there as well as Vermont since it is so near Massachusetts and Idaho which is 27% Mormon, second only to Utah’s 72%. (See map after the jump.)
  • Paul’s best chances are in Alaska and North Dakota‘s caucuses.
  • Gingrich will likely pick up his home state of Georgia.
  • Santorum is strongest in the Midwest: Ohio, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
