Response to retrowire (Reply #6)

9. For scale, that is about half the number of delegates that are "up for grabs" on Tuesday.

The formula used by the DNC to allocate delegates is based on past general election votes. A lot of the states on Tuesday have reliably voted Republican, so they get far fewer delegates-per-person.
