    One big rare event. The only state Romney won by more than 80% in 2012 so far. We knew Utah 2008 was given to Romney. Will it prevail?

    Reminds me of and old Aggie joke, that went sort of like this:
    The A&M football team was playing Texas in a bitter hard fought game. About mid-way through the 2nd quarter, there was a loud noise as a car somewhere close backfired. Texas thought it was the end of the half, so headed off into the locker room. Three plays later, the Aggies scored.
    (No offense to A&M intended.)

    Of course, Romney won the NJ Primary. The other 3 candidate had dropped out of the race.They were Paul,Santorum and Gingrich. It was a primary election. You had to vote your party. Otherwise the machine is locked.
    One other note: All he needed was a single vote and you also could have said he won N J.
