Former Sen. Rick Santorum won an overwhelming victory this weekend in the Kansas GOP presidential caucuses with more than half of the popular vote, while ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney took first place in Wyoming after doing well on Super Tuesday last week.

Texas Congressman Ron Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich are still in the battle too, with Gingrich hoping to earn a victory in two upcoming southern states. So, according to analysts, anything is still possible and the nomination remains up for grabs despite Romney's momentum.
 
In Kansas, Santorum dominated the field, earning 51 percent of the popular vote and 33 out of 40 delegates, according to news reports. His campaign placed significant emphasis on securing a sizeable lead in the state and it appears that the strategy paid off.
 
Romney came in second with 21 percent despite not campaigning in the state, taking the other seven delegates. Gingrich and Paul both received less than 15 percent of the vote and zero delegates.
 
"This is definitely a good day for the campaign," said Santorum campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley in a statement after the Kansas results were announced. "We're the only ones that have proven we can win all over this country."
