Maryland Primary Results 2012: Live Updates

The Maryland primary results will determine which presidential contender gets the state's 37 delegates in the winner-take-all contest.

Mitt Romney was expected to cruise to victory in Maryland, as well as in Wisconsin and Washington, D.C., which held their respective primaries the same day. HuffPost's Mark Blumenthal reports:

Two late polls show him leading by margins of 17 and 25 percentage points. In 2008, John McCain defeated Huckabee in Maryland by 55 to 29 percent -- not far from where the most recent polls put Romney and Santorum today -- and won all of its delegates because he carried every county and all eight congressional districts. Nate Silver of The New York Times believes that Romney is likely to win all but one or two of Maryland's districts on Tuesday.
