Mitt Romney wins tonight with the Ron Paul block, that much is clear.
The Ron Paul people weren't going to vote for the war mongering, drug warrior, big spender and current President Barack Obama, and they sure weren't going to vote for the sleazy liberal from Massachusetts, so the votes were split between votes for Gary Johnson (over a million votes) and write ins for Ron Paul.
