Chalk up another win for Mitt Romney. With nearly 100% of the precincts reporting, it is certain that Mitt Romney has won the state of Illinois in the Republican Primaries.
Romney is not going to walk away with all 54 delegates from the state because Illinois distributes its delegates through proportional representation. That means that if Romney finishes at the same percentage he is at now, he will receive 47% of the delegates offered by the state.
In turn, Rick Santorum will be getting 35% of the delegates, Ron Paul is going to get 9$, and Newt Gingrich is going to take home 8%.
The double digit victory is a huge win for Romney. He is further pulling away from the competition and getting closer to earning the right to face off against President Barack Obama for the Presidency of the United States this year.
It is becoming clearer and clearer that Romney is going to be the man representing the Republican Party in November. It is expected that in the coming weeks, his competitors for the nomination will begin to think about dropping out of the race and surely one by one, they will opt out and let Romney take the nomination that he is more than likely going to win.
