Romney’s Allegedly Dispiriting Night, Where He’ll Win More Delegates



Text  



Mitt Romney is the projected winner of Arizona. So he’ll get 29 delegates in that winner-take-all state.

In Michigan, he’ll probably win about half of the state’s 14 congressional districts; he gets two delegates from each of those. Rick Santorum will win the other half. The statewide winner will get two additional delegates.

So, while the storyline may very well be a tough defeat or too-close-for-comfort win for Mitt Romney – at this moment, he leads, 41 percent to 39 percent with 19 percent of precincts reporting – he will end the night with about 43 delegates, and Santorum will probably get, best case scenario, 16 delegates.
