IL, PA and WV are direct delegate elections. Therefore they should be calculated as winner-take-all by district. Whichever delegates get the most votes in each district will win that district and the others will get nothing.
If Santorum’s delegates get 35% of the vote, as long as the other 3 guys get lower votes, he gets all 3 delegates for that district. Technically a voter could split their vote and vote for 1 Santorum delegate, 1 Romney delegate, 1 Newt delegate, but I doubt that’s going to happen. That’s the only way a district could come out not winner-take-all in those states.
If there is a sole conservative non-Romney candidate who get >50% votes, Romney will get zero delegate in WTA districts. Splitting votes between Sant and Newt, they allow Rom to get 1/3 of votes and delegates while he should get none.
Depressing. There is no difference between Romney and Obama.
The Enemy always allow us suckers to choose the bad and the bad-der and we think we had a choice to choose between Republican or Democrat!
