“And by and large,” Rick Santorum said, “Gov. Romney can’t get above 35% of the vote anywhere”. Oh, really?
Just yesterday, Romney won Puerto Rico with 83% of the vote. He won his adopted home state with 72% of the vote. His finally tally in the Gem State was 62%, but 50% in the Silver State. In Arizona it was 47%, near identical to his Sunshine State tally of 46%. In another sunny state, Hawai’i, he captured 44% of the caucus votes, 41% in Michigan, 40% in Vermont, 39% in New Hampshire, 38% in Washington State, approximately his tally in the Buckeye State–and in Maine.
It’s generally a smart idea to check your facts before making such sweeping statements.
