With some 84% of all precincts counted, according to the Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster, Mitt Romney narrowly won Maine's Republican caucuses with 39% (2,190 votes) ahead of the libertarian Ron Paul with 36% (1996 votes).

Is Mitt Romney back on the winning street? Not so fast. Neither Rick Santorum nor Newt Gingrich campaigned actively in Maine. They finished way behind with 989 votes respectively 359 votes. Other candidates drew 61 votes.

Out of 258,000 registered Republicans in Maine, only some 5,600 cast ballots in the 2012 caucuses.

Furthermore, in 2008, Mitt Romney had managed to win 51% of the GOP vote in Maine. As stated above, that number dropped to 39% in 2012.

The Republican base cannot make up their made and warm up to Mitt Romney, the only reasonable candidate remaining in the presidential race. The only alternative would be a fresh candidate such as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg stepping into the ring, which is at present as likely as Newt Gingrich building a base on the moon.

Maine has a moderate GOP base and Romney was once governor in Massachusetts. Despite these assets, the Republican frontrunner, who only spent a few thousand dollars in TV advertising in Maine, has not managed a clear win.

Mitt Romney won 11 delegates in Maine, whereas Ron Paul won 10.

Let's hope that the Republicans will warm up to Mitt Romney once he will win the GOP nomination. Otherwise, we will have to live another four years with the Messiah in the White House.
