As of the moment with 22% returns in, Romney is winning or won 17 counties, Paul 8, Santorum 2, Gingrich 0

Very true, but there's not a lot of people in general everywhere else (except for Spokane, but that's still small relative to Tacoma and Seattle) so I think there are still more GOP voters in the cities, and I don't think that will benefit Santorum or Paul, both of whom do well in rural areas. I expect will still do well though. Either way, I would be surprised if Romney does not win this

The percentage of precincts reporting keeps going up, while the actual vote totals are staying the same.

This is essentially a straw poll, wouldn't put much into it.

GOP Chairman is saying Romney is doing very well in many areas, he expects Paul to get more votes and Santorum to start to stall. So Paul may get 2nd here.

That GOP guy said Paul should do well for himself in King and Spokane counties.

Momentum is always important, this would be Romney's fifth straight win.

Yeah, I don't know what to think...you might have saw that the precinct reporting jumped up to 34% for a split moment and then dropped way back down....since then the precincts have risen without the numbers in the popular vote....
