Easy win for Romney in Nevada

Mitt Romney won the Nevada caucus easily. Nate Silver blogs:

Although the exact margin has yet to be determined, Mitt Romney has been declared the winner in the Nevada caucuses tonight.

It appears that Mr. Romney may slightly outperform some expectations. Exit polls showed him winning about 55 percent of the vote in Nevada, versus hisFiveThirtyEight forecast of 51 percent. So should Representative Ron Paul, who may get closer to 20 percent than the 15 his percent projected by the forecast.

    I’m happy with this.
    I’ve seen statements by Gingrich in which he says that he wants to “bomb this” and “bomb that”. Even if that is just electioneering, he comes across as a real warmonger.
    Romney is much more of a statesman type. Hopefully he’ll get the nomination and then beat Obama.

    There are attack ads saying Romney is a serial killer!!!
    Mitt Romney has a secret,” says the announcer, whose deep, distinctive voice people will recognize as John Lithgow’s. “As head of Bain Capital, he bought companies, carved them up and got rid of what he couldn’t use.” Recalling Mr. Romney’s remark that “corporations are people,” the commercial concludes, “He’s Mitt the Ripper.”
