First Read: "Even though the general election campaign is now underway -- after Rick Santorum's exit earlier this month -- there are five primaries today in Connecticut, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania (Santorum's home state), and Rhode Island. As a result, this is the first primary day where Romney doesn't face any real competition. So when we watch the returns, we'll get a good idea of the true anti-Romney vote tonight. Does he get at least 50% in all of these contests? What about 60%? 70%?"
2. I live in NY, I also lived in DE for a few years
and both states are generally blue. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, we're not really going to give two craps about the Republican Primaries. I know a few people who live in upstate new york who SWEAR that Ron Paul is going to sweep the whole election. But I think the sparsely populated norther NY area isn't going to influence the whole state (not knocking Upstate, but I know about 20-25 Paulites who live in upstate NY, and they swear they go to rallys and events all the time up there, whereas down here, I've yet to even see more than one out-of-state-licence-plated Paul bumper sticker)
