If you really want to read something interesting, read about the Republican primaries in 1968. Ronald Reagan won the popular vote 1,696,632 (37.93%)to Nixons 1,679,443 (37.54%) but Nixon had more delegates at the convention and won the nomination. Just imagine if Freerepublic had existed then, it would have made this year look like a picnic.
Romney’s trailing the popular vote by much worse in this primary. He’s only got 42.3% of it.
