The Democrats added

The Democrats added Superdelegates because they didn't like the power wielded by grass roots to simply vote for who they want instead of whoever the DNC wanted. The Republicans don't do this. We can take Ron through the Primary. The primaries are not decided by voters, the primary is decided by delegates.

We need to gather information at this stage as to the exact delegate process in each state. If the by-laws for that state is a winner-take-all arrangement, if delegates are pledged or unpledged, etc. This link has a lot of good information at the bottom as well as a good breakdown of how the Republican Primary went down:

Can we possibly create a database in Access or Base of all the states and their precincts and how many delegates we have in each one? I think if we do that, we can work on getting more delegates into the GOP by finding holes in coverage, etc.
