Michigan Primary Results

"There's a strong chance of a funny result tonight. In fact, let's make this my out-on-a-limb prediction. Romney wins the popular vote, but does not win more delegates than Santorum." -IC, 7:15, 2/28

This prediction about Michigan's delegate results looks to be coming to fruition. With 95 percent of Michigan precincts reporting, Mitt Romney is winning the popular vote over Rick Santorum 41 to 38 percent. In terms of the Michigan delegate count, thirteen of the fourteen Michigan districts have called their races. Romney has won seven of them, Santorum six. Santorum leads in the First District, who has yet to call their race, by a small margin.

As of now, reports the Detroit Free Press, Romney wins 14 Michigan delegates and Santorum wins 12. The First District will determine another two, and two delegates will be determined by state-wide popular vote, which will probably split 1 to 1. If Santorum wins the First District, they'll split Michigan's 30 delegates at 15 a piece. If Romney comes back to win the First District, he'll win 17 delegates to Santorum's 13. All of this, of course, is in addition to Romney's Arizona Primary win, where he took all 29 delegates.

I'll have updated Republican Primary standings later.
