By on Feb 5, 2012 in International, Politics, United States Comments

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is being projected to win an easy victory in the 2012 Nevada caucuses on Saturday, February 4, 2012 against three other GOP presidential candidates.

As noted at US news sites that day, Mitt Romney is making a big lead in the early results of the 2012 Nevada caucuses and is being projected to win, his second consecutive victory after the 2012 Florida primary.

According to CNN, 10% of the initial result shows that Romney had about 48%, while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul were in a tight race for second place, with 20% and 21% of the vote, respectively. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has only 11%.

Based on the CBS demographics, Romney won among all age groups, except for voters between the ages of 17 and 29, where Paul had a big advantage votes over him, who have not won any contest since the start.

If Romney will officially be declared winner of the 2012 Nevada caucuses, he will be the first GOP presidential candidate in this race to make a back-to-back win and is being projected to win also the succeeding contest in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri on Tuesday, February 7.

Later, Mitt Romney made his “victory speech” in front of his supporters and continues to hit US President Barack Obama and did not mention anything about his fellow opponents.
