Romney wins 6 states, but Santorum draws conservative support

(CNN) - Mitt Romney's showing in six states was not a super one for the Republican presidential hopeful, who failed to produce the convincing wins needed to demonstrate his ability to generate support among diehard conservatives.

It was best illustrated by Romney's big Super Tuesday win in the bellwether state of Ohio, where he eked out a win over Rick Santorum, after failing to attract strong support from tea party conservatives and evangelical conservatives.

    well as much as the liberals and the media tried to spin Romneys victories Tuesday, there was no denying the fact that he has surged out in front if his three opponents. Congrats Mitt Romney....wont be long now until you get the chance to defeat Obama in November!!!

    This story failed to disclose some important facts: Rmnoney and his PACs outspent Santorum and his by about 5-1, which is even more lopsided than in Michigan. Given the narrow margin in both states, it would appear Rmoney is buying delegates, not winning the hearts and minds of voters. And so far, of the stories I've read this morning, CNN is very carefully avoiding any comparisons between turnout yesterday and four years ago. Hmmmmmm.

    WHen Santorum's College Degreee renunciation Program gets the publicity it deserves I predict a tidal wave of support among Conservatives- something along the lines of the Cultural Revoltiom in 1960s China.

    Conclusion. Conservative voters appear to know that Mitt Romney is "not one of us," one of those radical RINOs that appear to have taken control of the mindset of the Republican Party. So why does Mitt Romney keep pretending to be one?
