Transcript for How Big Are Romney's Wins in Michigan, Arizona?
He -- -- -- said if Mitt Romney lost. Michigan would be nine point oh on the richter scale so he avoids. That disaster and -- these two wins last night he is the front runner again can he keep the momentum this time. He avoided a nine point oh but I still probably think there's about a four point or five point the building -- stuff fell off the walls but he maintained a situation he's goes into Super Tuesday and actually this weekend wears a caucus in Washington State. I think the real question mark -- administration had three things that Mitt Romney has the answers -- so up this nomination first he's got when conservative votes. Second he's got to put together a winning streak nobody's put together a winning streak in this -- back to his campaign so far and at somebody when South Carolina and -- -- -- the next -- -- -- -- Hampshire they lose the next -- -- with Florida and it was an -- and the third thing is -- he's got to be able to unite the party behind the positive message. He has not been able to do that yet and I think those three questions. Yes the answer before you sort of put the man on -- say he's the nominee and any try to do that wasn't picking a President Obama in his address but this does. And doesn't at this talk about getting a new Republican into the race yet he said last night the white Knight I think search for the white Knight is done. I wanted to question of timing but two he won Michigan by enough only 3.2 one last time by nine to what it is because he wanted it. But it I think coms that fierce. But it's still a long way to go in this race it's still we still have a number of questions as I said to answer and the map as you point that does not work -- Mitt Romney's statement actually let's look at the Super -- an average ten states. Going out there you've got. That Vermont Massachusetts he's gonna do fine just -- -- continue look at the southern states Tennessee Georgia Oklahoma. Behind in all three right now in the big battleground again. Right in the midwest Ohio that's why -- had to win yes that's why he had to win yesterday in the way he won yesterday because otherwise as you say that terrain does not. -- do him well but we're not gonna go far -- we're gonna go for the Wolverine state to have Buckeye State. And that's where I think the battle ultimately will be decided whether or not this nomination is closed down -- -- -- -- Asked to win there to get any kind of absolutely has to win over Ohio and he has to win some of those other smaller caucuses he passed away -- -- Okay that Spanish.
