For lack of a group source, all I can give is Wikipedia. State delegate counts are towards the bottom.
Republican Party presidential primaries
However, to confirm such data, you only need to check each state individual to check how much delegates they have. They check out. Allow me to list
the data here.
State / Bound Delegates / Unbound Delegates / Total
Louisiana / 15 / 31/ 46
Indiana / 27 / 19 / 46
North Carolina / 52 / 3 / 55
West Virginia / 28 / 3 / 31
Oregon / 25 / 3 / 28
Arkansas / 33 / 3 / 36
Kentucky / 42 / 3 / 45
Texas 152 / 3 / 155
California / 169 / 3 / 172 (Winner take all)
New Jersey / 50 / 0 / 50 (Winner take all)
New Mexico / 20 / 3 / 23
South Dakota / 25 / 3 / 28
Nebraska / 32 / 3 / 35
Montana / 0 / 26 / 26
Utah / 40 / 0 / 40 (Winner take all)
Seems my original math was wrong, there are even less than I said, and that is because the Kentucky totals were 3 off for bound delegates on
Totals are as follows:
Bound Delegates: 710
Unbound Delegates: 106
Total Delegates: 816.
If you feel like going through thegreeppapers.com, your original source, you will find as I did that these numbers are indeed accurate and their math
is either off, or they are feeding you a line of BS. I of course, took the time to go state by state... I'm sure you did the same, no?
You can't make a statement like this without proof. Please show me proof that he has won nearly all the unbound delegates.
Are you intentionally ignorant of the news the past few days and months about Ron Paul's strategy, or are you still in denial about it? Even the MSM
is now admitting that he is getting majority of delegates in states that he did not even come close. C'mon man, you can do better than this.
The remaining winner take all states are Indiana(46), California(172), New Jersey(50), Montana(26) and Utah(40). If Romney wins all of those, he gets
334 delegates. Added to his hard count of 724, that is 1058. He would only need 86 more to clinch the nomination. So if Ron Paul can't outright win
one of those states, then it is all but over.
Montana and Indiana are negligible at best to anyone who does their research. Montana's delegates are not required to be bound unless specifically
done at the Montana convention. Which means that if Romney wins regardless, they are not required to vote for him.
Indiana is very similar. The delegates are not bound in the conventional way like other states and thus do not have to vote for the winner come the
Therefore, to me and any other reasonable person - the only winner take all states that matter are California, New Jersey, and Utah. But there you go
AGAIN including the unbound delegates in the winner-take-all scenario. As few as their may be, those unbound delegates are STILL not required to vote
for the winner of the state. Which takes 3 away from that California total, 19 away from Indiana, and as I said - ALL 26 away from Montana since they
are not bound by the convention by default.
