are counted. I have read and thought that the candidate who won the state gets the largest percentage of delegates and then they are distributed so forth on down.

Electoral college and delegates--isn't this about the same thing just different elections? This isn't that hard to understand, so why the hell am I so confused... :crazy:

Is anyone else confused on this and would someone who KNOWS exactly how to break-it-down for someone who is feeling like such a moron this morning :(

Thank-you--thank-you--thank-you in advance :)
