Nobody has said that Romney didn’t get a larger share in his primary than Obama did in his.

Instead, we’re pointing out that even though he supposedly has it in the bag, he’s still having trouble getting 70% of Republicans to vote for him. That much is mathematical fact, however you’d like to try to spin it. Fact is - a large chunk of the GOP electorate still isn’t reconciling themselves to him, despite all the “Anybody but Obama/You have to vote for Romney or else you’re voting for Obama” scaremongering.
