Santorum's Big Night - UPDATE 1

As of this writing, Santorum has won both the Alabama and Mississippi primaries. By tomorrow morning sometime, we will have some new delegate totals. I will be surprised if Santorum cuts into Romney's delegate by more than 5 delegates. He might even up a net loser for the day. If I get a chance I will update results in the morning.

The reason for this is that Romney has been sweeping the overseas contests like Guam and the Virgin Islands. No reason to believe that he won't seize most of the 29 delegates up for grabs from Hawaii and American Samoa tonight. Given the proportional result from Mississippi and Alabama, where Santorum's win might only net him +12 or so.


Realclearpolitics delegate count shows Romney +5 from the March 13 event.
New York Times delegate count shows Romney +6.

Interestingly Santorum's win in Mississippi doesn't seem to have netted much in the way of delegates as the NYT count shows him losin by one delegates there and RCP only showing him +1.
