(NEW YORK) — Mitt Romney is projected win the Maryland primary for the Republican presidential nomination, based on ABC News’ analysis of the exit polls.
The Maryland primary is winner-take-all by congressional district, which means Romney will take most of the state’s 37 delegates.
According to exit polls, Romney stormed to an easy victory in Maryland, crushing Rick Santorum on electability and experience, attributes picked by six in 10 voters as key to their choice.
Romney may also have been boosted by the fact that Maryland had the fewest number of lower-income voters in any primary this year (and the most with incomes of $100,000 or more).
