Delegate Numerology – Even on a night when he placed third in two key GOP state contests and won two smaller ones, Mitt Romney was victorious in the one area that really counts – the delegate race. When you look at the race from a national perspective, more Republicans by a long shot have voted for Romney. And his delegate totals surpass all of his rivals combined. Romney has 496 (53 percent of those awarded so far), so he needs 648 more to win the nomination. (About 48 percent of those remaining) http://abcn.ws/wqQAs3

But that doesn’t mean Mitt Romney isn’t a little grumpy…
