Virginia's Message for Mitt Romney

Virginia's role on Super Tuesday was largely ignored on the basis that there was no real contest there - Mitt Romney faced neither his biggest rival for the nomination, Rick Santorum, nor his Southern regional nemesis, Newt Gingrich. Weak organization kept both Santorum and Gingrich from qualifying for the ballot.

But the exit polls for Virginia are more revealing than the lopsided win for Romney indicates. They show Romney being forced to share roughly 40 percent of the Republican primary vote with Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, the fourth candidate in the race who has virtually no chance of winning the nomination.
