I have been asked how and where I have debunked the very poorly made blog: thereal2012delegatecount.com...
Which wrongly gives Ron Paul way more
delegates than he actually has. The ever changing format of this blog now has Romney at 755 delegates and Ron Paul at 229 Delegates in yellow.The Blog
itself now has no complete numbers for any of the states except for the few states that had primaries last night. It has no totals so that one can
check their math. Sometimes it has no links. It actually doesn't have links to half of their so-called data. It's a very poorly made map.
These people haven't had many numbers to twist in the last few weeks as it gave Romney his rightful delegate count in Texas and elsewhere. They have
for some reason not updated the "map" for the primaries that were on-going last night. I am not going to hold my breath. What really strikes me about
the site is that while Greenpapers does not want any donations, this site asks for them. Embedded with sneaky popups that force you to close a "please
register here to create you own map" link has me, someone who works in the technology field scratching his head and concluding that this is a legit
scam! I'm not even going to mention the video youtube link to some guy claiming that he knows what Rule 38 really means... Isn't that parroting the
Now, onto the math. Which I have done!
Rick Santorum Wins Louisiana: 20 National Convention Delegates are allocated proportionally according to the total statewide primary vote. The number
of delegates bound to those candidates receiving 25% or more of the state wide vote is [20 delegates] × [candidate vote] ÷ [total statewide vote]
rounded to the nearest whole number (rounding rules to handle too many or too few delegates are not known). www.thegreenpapers.com...
Rick Santorum Got 10 delegates in Louisiana. Romney got 5. 5 were uncommitted. Real Delegate Count States Ron Paul wins 27 of 49 Delegates. Romney
wins 19. But there seems to be some confusion on the Real Delegate Count blog that it does not address. In fact, it doesn’t even link to this
website since it has an obvious negative view of Ron Paul supporters. This site here:
tells a different story. “As a result, under party rules, Paul is
guaranteed at least 17 of the 46 delegates to the convention at which Romney will almost certainly be nominated for president.” So you see there
were not 49 delegates at stake. There were 46. It helps to have your facts right at first. Furthermore, the Real Delegate Count site magically gives
Ron Paul 10 more delegates out of their butts! I guess they figure Rick Santorum Delegates, which are bound to him in Louisiana, are going to go to
It appears however, that Rick Santorum is keeping all of his bound delegates with him because yes, he too wants a speaking role at the convention. And
yes, he too, is playing the delegate game. Since he too, technically never dropped out of the race, he just “suspended it.”
Romney Wins Nevada: 28 National Convention delegates are proportionally bound to Presidential contenders based on today's caucus vote.A 3.57%
threshold is required in order for a contender to be allocated delegates [1 / 28 delegates = 3.57%].For those candidates receiving 3.57% or more of
the vote: The number of delegates = 28 × (candidate's popular vote) ÷ (total statewide vote). www.thegreenpapers.com...
So based on that math Romney got 20 Delegates and Ron Paul got 8 in the caucus. At the state convention in May, Paul supporters upset the Romney
campaign by gathering 22 of the 25 national delegates. “However, Republican rules require the first vote at the national convention to reflect the
results of the Feb. 4 caucus, which Romney easily won. That means 20 of Nevada’s national delegates must vote for Romney, while eight will be free
to vote for Paul in the first balloting. While some Paul supporters voiced an intention to challenge the binding requirement, the campaign opted not
to further antagonize the Republican National Committee, who has threatened not to seat the delegates if they ignore the caucus results and vote for
Another blow to the Paul campaign is this, “The scenario is different in Nevada, where the state's Feb. 4 contest was binding. Some Paul delegates
told the Associated Press this weekend they will adhere to party rules and support Romney this summer despite the convention's outcome.”
Ron Paul Wins Maine: It states clearly on the greenpapers site that no national delegates are binding and it does not necessarily have to match the
popular vote. However, they said this, “We will allocate the state's unbound 21 non-party leader delegates proportionally according to the popular
vote for those candidates receiving 5% or more of the vote. This is a very rough estimate and will change by the time the state convention meets.”
On the second day of Maine’s convention which was held Sunday May 6, 2012 the delegates were elected. 6 district delegates are elected by caucus
participants from each of Maine's 2 Congressional districts. These delegates will attend the Republican National Convention officially unbound to any
CD 1: 3
CD 2: 3
15 delegates are elected by the Maine State Convention as a whole. These delegates will attend the Republican National Convention officially unbound.3
party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Maine's Republican Party, will attend the convention as
unbound delegates by virtue of their position.
Greenpapers confirms that Ron Paul did in fact win the Main GOP Primary, and 21 delegates are awarded to him. Romney gained 2 delegates. 1 was
uncommitted. Ron Paul spent the most amount of time, money, and effort in this state and was virtually unchallenged by the Romney campaign until they
noticed Paul’s plan late Friday.
Romney Wins Arizona: All of 29 of Arizona's delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged to the presidential contender receiving the
greatest number of votes in the Arizona Presidential Primary. www.thegreenpapers.com...
Despite attempts to boo Mitt Romney’s son off the stage at the Arizona Campaign and for them to elect someone else as head of the State GOP, Out of
nine congressional districts, Ron Paul’s delegates won two positions, one each in CD 1 and 5. Platform Republicans, pledged to support the party’s
nominee, won the other seven seats. Although Arizona is a winner-take-all state –with all of the state’s 29 national delegates allotted to a
single candidate — we took a hit when the state decided to schedule the primary before March 6.
