100 Delegates Up For Grabs?

Gingrich releases his delegates, urges support for Romney

AUGUST 21, 2012

Newt Gingrich, who once pledged to fight for the nomination all the way to Tampa, today sent a letter to the delegates he secured in the primaries and told them to support Mitt Romney.

Gingrich had collected more than 100 delegates before dropping out but that's insignificant in the grand scheme. Florida's primary was winner take all and Romney won. Ron Paul is boasting a bigger group of delegates but there's little sign of trouble for Romney.

Tell some of them about Mitt and Stericycle

The news just keeps getting

The news just keeps getting better and better every day we get closer to the RNC!

Will Santorum release his delegates next? He has almost 250 delegates.

This is so cool right now!!!! Daily Paul ROCKS.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

almost all will be for Romney

There are a few that are already Paul supporters, and they will vote for Ron Paul. There may be a few that could be swayed toward Paul's direction. But almost all of them will end up voting for Romney.


Now how many will be for him?

same number

Usually always opinions with no facts...

"almost all will be for Romney"...Where's the evidence? Oh yeah, you have none. Typical Romney supporter.

I'll place my bet, you place yours

I will bet that most will vote for Romney. These Gingrich delegates are coming from Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. In the states on that list where conventions were held, the conventions turned into Mitt Romney pep rallies. Based on evidence of delegate behavior in modern electoral history, most are statistically likely to vote for Romney at the convention. There are somewhere in the range of 10-20 Ron Paul supporters among this group. I predict that efforts to sway the rest of the delegates will not be extremely successful. My prediction is that between those 5 states I listed, which have approximately 250 delegates combined, fewer than 30 will cast ballots for Ron Paul. What's your bet on his total number from those states (GA, SC, MS, AL, and TN)?

All delegates are unbound

All delegates are unbound anyway.
