Although many now consider Mitt Romney as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee but that certainly does not mean that voting on that has ended now. Today polls are being conducted in five states including New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
There is not any as such suspense into it as many people already know that what is going to happen: It is expected that out of these five states, Romney will be grabbing at least four states and thus will get inches closer to the required 1,144 number of delegates needed to win the Republican Presidential nomination. (It was expected that the primary in Pennsylvania will be real hot battle but then Rick Santorum dropped out of the race).
It is expected that Romney will be adding some 200 delegates to the 688 delegates he has already secured and is on the path of securing more delegates. It is expected that somewhere around in late May he will finally get the Republican presidential nomination.
There is just one state about which nothing can be said for sure now. This state is Delaware where Gingrich has been focusing for quite some weeks and has been successful in winning some endorsements there. Gingrich told NBC, News Monday night that if he does not perform well in this First state then he is having intentions to reassess his candidacy bid.
He said on Monday that he thinks they need to take a deep look at what they are doing. He added that they will be in North Carolina tomorrow night and they will look and see that what the results are.
