Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney, who at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference added the curious phrase “severely conservative” to the political lexicon, won the event’s weekend straw poll with 38 percent and the Maine caucuses with 39 percent of support, both by slim margins. But he trails rival Rick Santorum in Michigan, the state where Romney grew up, which will hold its primary on Feb. 28.
