Mitt Romney has won in six of the 10 states where Republicans held primaries or caucuses on Super Tuesday. The race was especially close in Ohio, a bellwether state where Romney managed just a 1% lead over Rick Sanctorum. “No Republican candidate has won the presidency in modern times without carrying Ohio, with the exception of Richard Nixon,” said Cleveland State University political scientist Joel Lieske in a news report.
Mitt Romney carried Vermont with 40% of the vote; Virginia (60%); Ohio (38%); Massachusetts (72%), where he was governor, by a landslide; Idaho (62%) and Alaska (33%).
Rick Sanctorum carried North Dakota (40%), Oklahoma (34%) and Tennessee (37%).
Newt Gingrich carried his home state, Georgia (47%).
