Updated DOOOOOOoooomsday Countdown
As you can see, Mitt Romney, Captain Inevitability, has passed the five minute mark on the road to Doooomsday. The new count comes from some grabs in proportional caucuses where Santorum made his Trifecta Sweep (2 in Minnesota and 9 in Colorado) and Romney's Maine grab, which gave him 8. The rest of the candidates are battling to keep up, featuring Santorum with 44, Gingrich with 32, and Paul with 20.
The last two primaries of the month are the 28th, when Michigan and Arizona offer up 30 and 29 delegates respectively. Arizona's 29 are winner-takes-all, so it represents a decent prize. Romney has a healthy lead there, but RCP has Santorum up .7 percent in Michigan, Romney's home state, with PPP giving him as much as 15 percent.
