Predictions for the Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. Primaries

The “Potomac Primaries” (states that touch the Potomac River) are tomorrow, for both parties.  These primaries consist of Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

Here’s what at stake for the Republicans: 63 winner take all (WTA) delegates for Virginia, 34 WTA by district and state delegates for Maryland (plus 3 RNC delegates that are uncommitted), and 16 WTA delegates in Washington, D.C. (with 3 RNC delegates also).

For the Democrats: 83 proportional delegates for Virginia, 70 proportional delegates for Maryland, and10 proportional delegates for Washington, D.C.

Here’s my prediction for the Republicans:

Virginia:

  1. McCain – 51%
  2. Huckabee – 41%
  3. Paul – 7%
  4. Other – 1%

Maryland:

  1. McCain – 56%
  2. Huckabee – 31%
  3. Paul – 11%
  4. Other – 2%

Washington, D.C.:

  1. McCain – 58%
  2. Huckabee – 24%
  3. Paul – 16%
  4. Other – 2%

Most of those other votes will go to Romney supporters, I’m guessing.

And for the Democrats:

Virginia:

  1. Obama – 62%
  2. Clinton – 36%
  3. Other – 2%

Maryland:

  1. Obama – 60%
  2. Clinton – 33%
  3. Uncommitted – 6%
  4. Other – 1%

Washington, D.C.:

  1. Obama – 82%
  2. Clinton – 15%
  3. Other – 3%

I have a lot of homework, so I’ll try to get good updates in, but no promises.  About the delegate update – I’m working on it – I’ll have it done by the weekend.

Done Predicting,
