In partial Georgia returns, Newt Gingrich is winning easily, with over 40% of the votes, with 43% of the vote. Rick Santorum, with 25%, is running ahead of Mitt Romney, 23%. But when you look at the returns by congressional district, you see that no results have been reported in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th districts, which are all in metro Atlanta. I expect that Romney will outpoll Santorum there--Romney carried many of these counties in 2008--and has a good chance to end up in second place.
