Does anyone truly understand the rules of bound and unbound delegates?Submitted by Whitebeard on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 16:24
Does anyone here truly understand the rules of bound and unbound delegates?
I hear many people say that if Romney doesn't win the first ballot, then Ron Paul has the chance to win instead.
But if delegates cannot abstain and bound delegates have to vote for Romney regardless of their preference for Ron Paul, then how would they make Romney lose the first ballot and have more voting rounds?
The Paul campaign said that they would follow the rules in voting in the first round without abstaining. But how can they win, if the bound delegates have to vote for Romney.
