  •  the chances of nobody having enough delegates (0+ / 0-)

    for the nomination when the convention begins...seemed to have increased dramatically last night. Although...can someone please explain to me how it is that nobody won any delegates in any of the states that held caucuses last night? Does that mean that the results of last night are just as meaningless in Colorado an Minnesota as in Missouri? Or does that just mean that the delegate selection process needs to play itself out in those two states? Why has nobody projected what the delegate breakdown might be for those two states?

      My understanding is that they elected delegates to a state convention in all of them except Missouri and then those people at the state convention elect the actual delegates. Theoretically, I think, if you have 50.00001% of the delegates at the state convention you can send all of the states delegates on your slate.

      But it usually ends up being roughly like the percentage sent there.
