Can we still have a brokered convention now that Romney dropped out???

This was in an email I just got..

"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 short."

Do you guys think it's possible for a brokered convention???

God I hope so.

the email is loaded with bad info. Ohio and Texas both do a district/state WTA.
Mccain has around 720 delegates. Any other info is a pipe dream
