The 2012 Puerto Rico Republican primary of March 18 is a winner-takes-all-contest if someone wins more than 50% of the vote, otherwise the 20 delegates at stake will be awarded proportionally.

With some 61% of all precincts counted, according to the State Elections Commission, the take-it-all winner in Puerto Rico is Mitt Romney with 83%! Clearly ahead of  Rick Santorum with 8% of the vote, Newt Gingrich with 2% and Ron Paul with just 1%.

While the vote went on in Puerto Rico's 2012 Republican Party presidential primary, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum were already campaigning in Illinois and Louisiana because they are next on the list of GOP caucuses and primaries and because, although the voters among the 3.7 million residents of Puerto Rico can vote in the GOP primary, they cannot vote in the US general election in November.

However, in November 2012, Puerto Ricans will vote on their future political status. Do they want to become and independent country, join the US as a state or have the island's status unchanged?

Ahead of the GOP primary in Puerto Rico, Rick Santorum has said that he was in favor of the island joining the United States as a state, but that English had to become Puerto Rico's main language in order to make that step. Puerto Ricans are mainly Spanish speaking.

Mitt Romney said: “Obviously Puerto Rico is a [...] Spanish-speaking island and they will continue to speak Spanish, and of course that's their culture, and they have every right to do so.”

According to Philip Elliott of AP, Rick Santorum told a church audience in Louisiana: “One of the great blessings I've had in every political campaign is people underestimate me, people underestimate what God can do.” Whenever a politician says God is on his said, he should be voted out immediately. As for Santorum, either the voters were intelligent when they voted him out of the Senate in 2007 or God felt that is was not Rick's time...
