Romney Not Reaching 1,144 Delegates Any Time Soon

NYT: “While Mr. Romney holds considerable advantages over his rivals, his aides acknowledge that he is unlikely to reach the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the nomination for at least two more months. His challengers have gradually given up on the idea of surpassing him and have turned to a strategy of trying to block him from reaching the delegates he needs to effectively end the nominating contest.”

Prediction: Regardless of who ends up the ultimate nominee, expect Republicans to reconsider the Michael-Steele “excitement” strategy for delegate selection for the 2016 or 2020 contest.  More winner-take-all; less proportionality.
