The prior post is HERE.
I'm sure there will be further changes in a few days, some of which are already underway.
Interesting in that Puerto Rico is more important than New Hampshire, Vermont or Rhode Island.
Texas and it’s whopping 155 delegates was primary date was ordered changed by the two federal judges from a March Super Tuesday state to an April 3 primary date. Texas was also changed from a winner take all state to proportional representation. These two changes have dramatically lowered Texas’ influence on who the nominee will be. My understanding is the change from winner-take-all to proportional-representation was a result certain rules changes made by the Republican National Committee. What were these rule changes and how did they come about?
The rule change you're asking about is probably the one that specifies all GOP primaries prior to April 1 would distribute delegates proportionally, rather than wiiner-take-all.
It was designed to a.) extend the decision over a longer period of time and involve more states and b.) insure that a John McCain didn't happen again (McCain never won a majority of primary voters in any state until his home state, Arizona, put him over the top on the delegate count).
Even though it's now scheduled for April 6, Texas probably remains proportional because it was originally scheduled in March.
“Even though it’s now scheduled for April 6, Texas probably remains proportional because it was originally scheduled in March.”
Hmmm. So the federal judges not only screwed Texas by moving the primary dates into April, but for some inexplicable reason the primary date-rule no longer applies and we can no longer still be winner-take-all. And, we’re not even supposed to be concerned that filing dates are reopened and extended into February or that the legislature’s re-districting work is wasted and cancelled and voters and candidates don’t even know what districts they are in yet, and districts are being drawn by two unelected federal judges.
Well, thank you LBJ and GWB.
Is there any way a running total of how the delegates are pledged could be added?
Thanks Ron,We are in Pa.so we can’t vote until April.:(
Iteresting that TX and CA are so late in the game.
Bookmark for a very useful thread.
Anyone: I wonder what is the first CLOSED R primary?
(The one Dems can’t vote for Romney or Paul)
Which states follow Florida? Am trying to get the follow link (message) out. Can you help by posting in any of the state message boards?
