Some States Do Bind All Delegates

Even if we assume that rule 38 can be circumvented by having a few unbound delegates from a state (such as the party leaders), there are at least several states which do bind *all* delegates and are "winner take all", so that rule 38 would certainly apply to those.

These are:
Florida, Arizona, Idaho, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, & Utah

For a total of 255 delegates from those states

Since these are all states with votes for Romney this means he could get a lot less votes than is generally assumed.
