Can somebody explain the current delegate counts?

Can somebody explain the current delegate counts? I'm seeing conflicting counts, so I'm very confused as to what the definitive counts are.

You've probably noticed

that Mitt Romney has many more delegates than he possibly could after just Iowa and NH. However, super delegates, who are RNC committee members, can pick whoever they want. Although there are just a handful in each state, totaling around 130 in the country, there have been a few that already pledged to give Romeny their vote. I believe CNN has a section where you can see the details. Additionally, since no delegates have been selected in Iowa, the media may be just giving their opinions on who got what.
