There's Something About The Month of May

There's a lot of time left between now and June 26th. Anything can happen, and anything is possible. The impossible has already happened so don't underestimate the impossible. Who'd of thunkit' only a year ago? Paul vs. Romney...with 2 months left in a 2 horse race.

Louisiana, Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Oregon, Arkansas, Kentucky, Texas, California, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, Utah.

15 States to go, 816 delegates remain...

The current delegate count for Romney stands at 599...

Romney needs to win at least 545 more delegates to clinch the Republican presidential nomination. Only 4 out of the remaining 15 states have a winner takes all delegate allocation.

15 states will determine who becomes the next president of the United States. I do not feel nervous, for this was the plan all along.

Our future is now....and there, "Ain't no mountain high enough," to keep Ron Paul away from the GOP presidential nomination, babe.

15 States to go?

How come I only count 14 States left to go?

http://www.2012presidentialelectionnews.com/2012-republican-...

From what I figure

Romney needs all but 350 delegates left, based on his hard total of 724. With the states that Santorum and Gingrich is still on the ballots, this is looking more hopeful for Ron Paul.

Romney has 599? Where are you

Romney has 599? Where are you getting that from? Link?

How many delegates doesn Ron have? Some say 54, some say 79, some say something else.

Help! This delegate crap is driving me nuts!

Go to this link and scroll all the way down...

Scroll waaaaay down. Look on the right hand side...Romney is in orange. Very detailed list of states, delegates, proportional vs. winner takes all, convention dates, etc.

Romney is listed with a total of 599 delegates. LOOK at Iowa...look at Minnesota, Maine, Washington, Illinois, Missouri, Colorado and Pennsylvania....

220 "Uncommitted," delegates.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

if you add up all the numbers in orange

If you add up all the numbers in the orange column, you get something much larger than 599, though. I got 773, though my count could be off. I'm not sure why it says 599 at the bottom.

I don't think that count includes the pledged, unbound RNC delegates (superdelegates, basically), of which Romney has 43 so far. It also doesn't include Pennsylvania, where he got a ton (though no one knows the count, and we probably won't know for a long time).

Im sure that number is the

Im sure that number is the bound delegates only. Im sure he has more than 599 but less than the 700+ number that is always being thrown around.

This site lays it out in the most "fair" way, but I would contest even their numbers. But at least they have information there to explain all the numbers and that anything could change.

Mitt Romney has 599 delegates at most...it appears that the old media is giving the "uncommitted," delegates (220 of them) from Iowa, Minnesota, Maine, Colorado, Missouri, Washington, Illinois and PA to Romney. Jumping the gun...

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

The Important Thing Is We Keep Moving Forward..No One Knows the

actual count...It's a complicated mess. There are so many variables involved in determining the real delegate count..It really isn't important right now..Lets just keep moving forward and gather up as many delegates as we can and hope for the best..No?

bumping-so love this

bumping-so love this post.Thank you!.

Yes - Good post. We are finally in the position we want to be.

With over a month of primaries and caucuses left, it means Ron Paul is alone as a challenger. They must acknowledge THAT at least.

It means more spotlight and the ONLY alternative to the ultra-establishment Romney.

I would like to see Dr. Paul challenge Romney (PUBLICALLY) to a ONE-ON-ONE debate.

Now THAT would be fun.

it's my birthday month and i expect presents from all of you in the form of silver and gold. may birthdays rock the house.

I second that!

My birthday is in May too :P

Little help please...

I saw a graphic last year that showed each network, who owned it, and the interest that company had in the war machine. Does anyone know where I can find that?

When you find it I wanna see it

I've always wanted to see something like that, some kind of graph showing who owns what media company and all the money tied in with it.

Who are the 4 winner take all states? And what is the max

they can get from these 4 states?

By your math, "816 delegates remain...current delegate count for Romney stands at 599...and needs to win at least 545 more" ....

how is that not easily achieved by Romney? Please explain.

If he has 599, needs only 545, and 816 remain to be had, how/why should we expect that he will NOT get the 545 out of the 816 to be over the 1144 needed delegates?

Sorry, i did not have my coffee this morning, please explain.

And tell me about Texas and California.

Only TWO remaining winner-take-all states

New Jersey (50 delegates) and Utah (40 delegates) - those 90 are a certainty for Romney. A couple of other states award many delegates based upon winner-take-all by congressional district, not by statewide vote.

duh!!

because now there are only two candidates that the delegates will have to vote for. no more bound delegates for Newties or Prick Santorum! GO RON PAUL!

Now That This Is A Two-Man Race...

It's time to take off the gloves and "Fight" for the Presidency...

It's time to launch an all out attack on "Flip-Flop" Romney...

Does anyone know what will

Does anyone know what will happen to delegates already received by Santorum and Gingrich? Please don't take this question as a negative, it is just something I have been wondering. I pray Godspeed for Ron Paul. Yes, it may be a long shot, but so are alot of things that are achieved! There are more and more of us on this Liberty Train! GO RON PAUL!!!

Bound delegates are required

Bound delegates are required to vote for Santorum in the first round. After the first round, they can vote for whomever they want, including Santorum again.

If they were selected as Santorum delegates from unbound or caucus states, they can vote for whoever they want in round one.

If they are backup delegates, they can vote for whoever they want.

So basically, they are all released, unless they are bound delegates, at which point they need to vote for him round one, even with him not being there.

I believe this is correct from what I have heard.

I think my real question is,

I think my real question is, can they pledge their delegates to Romney (within the same rules you stated above)?
