With none of the Republican candidates able to throw a knockout punch, the race for the nomination now slows to a crawl. Contests are now being waged on a state-by-state basis with no more than five states voting at any one time, The Washington Post political blog The Fix reported.

The excitement of the early contests in Iowa and New Hampshire is now history — as is Super Tuesday, when 10 states had more than 400 delegates up for grabs. Those contests produced no big winner and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum are now grinding it out.

Over the weekend, Romney picked up 38 delegates in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, while Santorum grabbed 33 delegates in the Kansas caucuses, the Post reported. Romney now has 454 delegates and Santorum 217 of the 1,144 needed to secure the nomination.

The rest of March does not look good for Romney, with contests in Alabama and Mississippi and the best he might hope for is that Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich split the two states. April looks much better for Romney with a number of states holding contests — such as Maryland, New York, and Connecticut — where he should be favored.

With eight contests, May is not as clear cut and Romney may have to look to June, when California, New Jersey and Utah vote, to wrap it up, the Post reported.
