Super Tuesday exit polls: Romney wins Virginia, Vermont and Massachusetts

Underscoring the continuing contentious and divided nature of national Republicans, the remaining GOP presidential candidates split the Super Tuesday contests amongst themselves, once again denying Gov. Mitt Romney (R) the decisive wins he would need to officially clinch the 2012 nomination.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Sen. Rick Santorum and Romney on Tuesday fought for more than 400 delegates in Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.

Exit polls projected former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to win his home state of Georgia, with 45 percent of the vote. Romney was projected to pick up 26 percent, followed by Santorum with 20 percent and Paul with 8 percent. Gingrich picked up at least 23 of Georgia’s 76 delegates.

Romney was projected to win Virginia, where only himself and Paul appeared on the ballot. Gingrich and Santorum both failed to submit the 10,000 verifiable signatures needed to qualify.

Romney was also projected to win the Vermont primary and his home state Massachusetts.

Santorum will win Oklahoma, according to exit polls.

Presidential candidates need to obtain 1,144 delegates to win the Republican nomination.

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
