Romney wins AZ, Michigan

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

@ChrisHarrisKS: Congrats @MittRomney!!! You beat @RickSantorum bt 4 points after leading him by 30 points a few months ago.
There's also a lot of talk about Santorum's comments about JFK - that JFK's speech about the separation of church and state - made Santorum vomit.  Apparently, Santorum made Catholics in Michigan vomit.
CBS's exit polls show 37 percent of Catholic voters in Michigan supporting the Pennsylvania Republican and 43 percent supporting the Massachusetts Republican. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul won 8 percent and 9 percent respectively.

Meanwhile, CNN exit polls in Arizona show Romney besting Santorum among Catholic voters by a margin of 41 percent to 35 percent.
And maybe, just maybe, the fact that Santorum stuck his neck out on this contraceptive insurance issue, in defense of the Catholic bishops, when regular Catholics don't tend to agree with the bishops (and thus Santorum) on this issue, or much of any issue. Santorum isn't a Catholic. He's a fringe Catholic, an opus dei Catholic (Santorum denies being a member, but he supports them and sent his kids to an opus dei school). There's a difference. And the polls in MI and AZ show that.
