Welcome to a parallel universe. A casual onlooker might mistake it for our own. The same people run their Congress and their Democratic National Committee. The same election results toss out half the Republicans in 2006 and the rest in 2008. But in our universe, those events were recorded as the triumphs of smart folks like Rahm Emanuel and David Plouffe, winning despite the ruinous work of the DNC. In Herding Donkeys, Ari Berman reports from a place where Howard Dean deserves the credit.

Mitt Romney likely has the LDS community to thank for two of his six wins in yesterday’s Super Tuesday. While there are now entrance polls to verify this fact based on past voting patterns, it is very likely that the Mormon vote is what propelled Romney to both his big win in the Idaho caucus and his narrow victory in the Alaska caucus.

Early this morning the final two Super Tuesday states, Alaska and Ohio, were called for Mitt Romney. Those victories brought Romney’s total for Super Tuesday to six of ten, including his wins in Idaho, Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia. He also managed to win so many more delegates that it’s becoming highly unlikely anyone can keep him from getting the nomination.

Even though ten states are voting in the Republican presidential primary tomorrow, most of the media’s attention will likely be directed at Ohio, where the race between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum remains incredibly close. If Santorum doesn’t win Ohio, it would likely start people questioning the viability of Santorum’s candidacy. Ohio is probably a must win for Santorum.
