Well, 9 delegates is 0.79% of the total needed to win. :-)
Sen. Rick Santorum picked up at least 29 delegates Tuesday after winning the Alabama and Mississippi Republican presidential primaries.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich added at least 24 delegates and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney got at least 31. Texas Rep. Ron Paul was being shut out.
So the Samoa deligates gave Romney the win on Tuesday as far as total deligates go.
