The G.O.P.ís Fuzzy Delegate Math

The G.O.P.ís Fuzzy Delegate Math
By NATE SILVER - http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/25/the-g-o-p-s-fuzzy-delegate-math/


If Rick Santorum wins in Michigan on Tuesday but loses Arizona, he may get the better spin out of the evening while winding up with fewer delegates. That is because Arizona is a winner-take-all state whereas Michigan is not.

Itís possible, in fact, that the candidate who wins the popular vote in Michigan will take away fewer delegates ....

.... the G.O.P.ís delegate-selection rules are exceptionally complicated and ambiguous. Many delegates could go to the convention in Tampa either loosely pledged or entirely unbound to any of the candidates.

That means there will be some wiggle room ..........
