Santorum is about to win the entire state of TN - But...

...where I'm at (Knox County), he doesn't have a single committed delegate. So, what happens if he wins Knox (or any other county) but doesn't have the delegates? Just curious.

It's proportional

If he wins in a district, the delegates elected in that district are "bound" (required) to vote for him at the National convention. There are 3 delegates awarded per district.

There are various percentages calculated both district wide (not county) and state wide that determine the allotment of delegates, but wherever he wins, he gets those delegates.

You can check here for TN's specific requirements and how the percentages work:

Oh come on! You downright

Oh come on! You downright know who's going to win most of the delegates...stop blushing.

If there is one thing I can say for certain, Mitt Romney does NOT have what it takes to beat Obama.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Another question...

Does anyone know why Google is painting various TN counties Santorum Purple, even though they still say 0.0% reporting?

Become a delegate...

Most Caucus states work by getting elected to the County then on to the District or State Level... If you can make it through to the State there is a possibility that you could get voted on to the National Level... Any way you need to become a delegate then move on to the next round. These Delegate meetings don't take up too much time.

I'm a student in Knoxville. My residence is in VA.

Therefore I can't become a delegate.

So back to my question... any idea?
