This is a good time to learn the process. This is why politics is the sport that it is folks and the soundbite "horserace" you get from the MSM is just the tip of the iceberg.

Caucus states, Primary states, Conventions, Winner take all (by state or by county), proportional delgate distribution, state delgates, national delegates, Mixed Primaries, Open Primaries.

40 state delegates to a likely state convention to pick the national delegates. Look at WV, theres still a lot of wheeling and dealing to happen in the upcoming state conventions. As long as there is no clear winner up until the National Convention any candidate in the race is in the game.

This is why we want Mccain to do poorly and huck and Romney to both do well..
