He has lost the catholic vote in most places. He appeals more to Protestants.

Those aren't even remotely close to the actual results... Like, not even by a longshot...
If they were, then perhaps you'd have a point. But, given this, they were more than likely (waaay more than likely, that is) just testing the system.

Catholics traditionally vote for Democrats overall, Ponderosa, so who they vote for now matters to just the candidates for delegate purposes.

Is this like "Hearts" where if you get all the losing cards you win?

Santorum has pretty much lost the Catholic vote across the board.

It looks like the delegate breakout is going to be 42-12.

Why did ABC news flub and posted the election results last night, when the election was today?

Yet Santorum trudges on and it's very divisive for the party. I'd think that
the RNC would be giving Gingrich and (dare I say it?) Dr. Paul a nudge to end their campaigns.

I think Newt suspends his campaign after LA, he is broke and really there is nowhere for him to go after LA.

Actually, that 60% figure they gave must have been referring to the results at that point in time. It looks roughly 25-30% of the votes came from Cook County. Still, that is FAR more than any other county. By far, more Illinois Republicans live in Cook County than any other county, so my larger point stands.

Nearly half of Illinois residents live in Cook County; the population in Cook is almost equal to all the rest of the counties in Illinois combined. So the fact that more Republican votes came from Cook than any other county is not at all surprising. And still, Cook is overwhelmingly Democratic, so again, I don't see this as good news for Romney.
