Analysis Super Tuesday

March 1, 2012 by staff 

Analysis Super Tuesday, Since 1988, when Michael Dukakis beat his main Democratic rivals in a slew of March primary states, “Super Tuesday” has usually played a pivotal role in determining presidential nominees in both parties. This year, it will not.

That’s because the mechanics of the 2012 Republican race are beginning to resemble those of the 2008 Democratic nomination fight, a grind-it-out battle for delegates that could last through well into the spring.

Republicans grudgingly came around to this realization even before Tuesday night’s primary results in Michigan and Arizona.

“It’s a muddle,” said Jack Lindley, the Republican Party chairman in Vermont, one of 10 primary and caucus states that will vote Tuesday. “Mitt Romney will probably pick up the most delegates on Super Tuesday and then it goes on, state by state, drip by drip. It’s like water torture.”
