Ten states voted in Republican presidential primaries. Romney won six, Santorum took three and Gingrich won Georgia.
Massachusetts: Romney Mitt Romney easily won the state he used to govern and where he still votes. The former governor would have been the heavy favorite even if he didn’t have the home-state advantage. He’s more popular in the state now than he was four years ago. In 2008, Romney beat John McCain in Massachusetts by only 10 points. In that race, he positioned himself as the conservative alternative to the moderate front-runner. Now Romney is considered the most moderate candidate in the field. It might hurt him elsewhere, but it’s made him even more popular in this Northeastern bastion of moderate Republicanism. Sometimes Massachusetts seems like an albatross around Romney’s neck, given his constant attempts to explain the policies he enacted in the Bay State. On Tuesday night, Massachusetts finally did Romney some good. Robert E. Klein/AP Buy Photo
