Mitt Romney sets voting record!

Mitt Romney set a record with at least two of Tuesday's primary wins, but it's an achievement the presumptive Republican nominee probably won't be bragging about.

The former Massachusetts governor won Delaware with 56 percent of the vote and Pennsylvania with 58 percent. According to University of Minnesota political scientist Eric Ostermeier, that marks the first time that a presumptive GOP nominee has failed to reach the 60 percent mark in a contest conducted after his last major challenger exited the race.

"While Romney avoided the embarrassment of winning with a mere plurality, never has a presumptive nominee won a primary contest with such a low level of support at this stage of the race with his chief challenger no longer actively campaigning," Ostermeier writes at Smart Politics, the university's political site. Smart Politics reviewed Republican primary election data since 1972.

While the Romney campaign insists a win is a win, Romney's below-60-percent victories in Delaware and Pennsylvania come after months of questions about whether the ex-governor will be able to unite Republicans around his candidacy.

So?

romney's support is lukewarm at best.
obama can't fill an arena. (I am going to research other incumbent presidents' campaign kick offs for crowd size.)
Ron Paul supporters are still energized and working hard. He is still drawing huge crowds.
These things give me a lot of hope for our/Ron Paul's success!
Footnote: Is obama using airforce 1 to travel to these campaign events and if so is he repaying us from his campaign funds?

In the gun that will blow Mittens outta the water.
I've linked to it myself..and the most relevant statement?
This One:
"the first time that a presumptive GOP nominee has failed to reach the 60 percent mark in a contest conducted after his last major challenger exited the race"....

FOCUS on the LESS THAN 60% FACT...That's the real deal.
It shows how UN-Electable Mittens really is!

Wait till the scandals on Romney's "PONZI SCHEME" hit the streets.
Not to mention this:
