If the convention will be brokered, it's more due to the fact that neither McCain or Romney are real conservatives, nor unite the party.

That a great article
The Revolution is Going to a Brokered Convention - McCain Can’t Win Enough Delegates

For anyone calling for a 3rd party run, hold your horses.

Republican Delegates (1,191 needed to win nomination)
Candidate Delegates
Mike Huckabee 190
John McCain 613
Ron Paul 14
Mitt Romney 269
Total 1,086
1,191 - 613 = 578 delegates short
McCain is NOT going to pick up 578 delegates any time soon.
Super Tuesday was his best shot at winning the nomination, and he didn’t even come close.
How is McCain going to afford to keep his campaign functioning? He has no more money, and has no conservative base support.
So what states are left that are rich in delegates?
Feb. 12: 116 Republican delegates, including 63 in Virginia and 37 in Maryland.
March 4: 256 Republican, including 137 in Texas and 85 in Ohio.
May 6: 96 Republican, including 69 in North Carolina.
Let’s do the math….
McCain has 613 delegates + states I think he will win
Maryland 37
Ohio 85
613 + 37 + 85 = 735
Let’s say McCain takes Texas and Virginia…
735 + 137 + 63 = 935
McCain is still 256 delegates short, and this delegate count is assuming these states are winner take all, but some are not. Even if McCain picks up North Carolina, he will still be 187 votes.
We are going to a brokered convention.
There is no possible way for John McCain to pick up the 1,191 necessary delegates to secure the GOP nomination.
Ron Paul will speak to the nation in St. Paul, MN.
He will have a national platform to introduce himself to America.
The old media cannot rig his speech. Ron Paul will use this national stage to launch the revolution into the stratosphere and take back the Republican Party.
The revolution has won a MAJOR victory.

Wow. Now that's cool news. Here I thought McCain might soon have the nom in the bag, but he doesn't!

Keep the faith people. But just remember, this is about local politics now. Become a delegate, and get connected to the politics in your neighborhood. No one runs for Congress straightaway. Become a part of your local political scene. Help people. Be an asset. And continue to believe as you do. If we all do that, we'll wake up one day and the country will have changed. Liberty will be restored.

Show up with signs! See you there!

I believe McCain and the other candidates have more delegates than those.

02-07-2008, 11:14 AM
If Romney/Huckabee drops out and endorses McCain, does the GOP still have a brokered convention? IOW, are their delegates considered McCain's for the ~1,200 delegate threshold?

Romney is going to hold on to his delegates for now.--CNN

613 Mccain
269 Romney



Needed: 1191
