No, Texas is NOT a winner take all state this election cycle. It's delegates are distributed proportionally. The Santorum camp was hoping that Texas could change to winner take all, but the RNC shot that down immediately. It was one of the reasons cited by the Santorum people for why he suspended his campaign.
But all this is moot if Newt doesnt win Delaware tonight.
If Newt loses Delaware and tries to remain in the race he is really going to look foolish. Delaware is winner take all I believe, so Gigrich has to actually win to get the 17 delegates. A close second gets him nothing. I actually think Newt does have a chance to win Delaware, but I don't see how it will make any difference in the long run. Maybe it would just be nice to see him go out on a high note.
I was banking on Texas being winner-take-all. And now I need something in the apartment with stronger proof than this red wine. Romney repulses me; he a human zero who wants power as an end in itself.
Guess conservatives should focus down-ticket; federal & state representatives - and governors - as a check against executive power, exercised by Obama or Romney.
