Let's talk a little politics now and America's election headquarters Mitt Romney tightens his grip on the GOP nomination going three for three in Tuesday's primaries.
In Wisconsin Maryland and Washington DC he is adding significantly.
To his big lead in the delegate count.
And in his victory speech the former Massachusetts governor focused squarely on the president instead of his Republican rivals.
President Obama is also now going after Mitt Romney directly by name.
Joining us now Chris tire -- Fox News digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com.
Interesting that the president has has decided to address mr.
Romney my name the White House is clearly decided.
No matter what the GOP primary might eventually say the White House is decided this is their opponent.
Well that's right now it's been it's been a year since president kicked off his campaign he spent a year basically raising money.
And taking campaign trips to swing states to talk about his policies.
And you saw a very sharp -- it happened yesterday the president talking to the Associated Press gathered in Washington.
And it was a bitterly partisan town it was hard hitting.
It was rough and it was general election stuff.
Usually the kind of things that you don't hear from an incumbent until much later in the process but they've turned to focus on Mitt Romney and the president is is getting rough early on.
Look let's talk a little bit about the primary though Rick Santorum still in and he is pinning a lot of his hopes for future success on his home state of Pennsylvania.
The real clear politics average of the polls in that state seem to suggest that the race it is tightening up a little bit.
Well we've got Mitt Romney at.
I'm sorry we've got -- at 36%.
At about 29%.
A little bit above that and again things seem to be getting tighter there and I read that right Chris.
Well that's what the polls have said certainly quinnipiac that -- -- quick Pace University has great job -- Pennsylvania today certainly showed the race tightening.
And obviously as Republicans coalesce behind -- it's going to be harder for saint is saint warm even in his former home state.
To come out make the case that Republicans ought to prolong this process but you know there's -- there's something else at stake here for Santorum John and that's the fact that.
If and win the moment comes for him to deport this race he doesn't want to do it he doesn't want to be run out and he doesn't want to be forced out of this race by Mitt Romney.
A guy who he has really run hard against -- used very tough language and very rough on Mitt Romney.
He doesn't want to get pushed out of the race by this guy so for his own sort of political dignity for his own future he also needs a win and -- it.
