Super-Duper Tuesday

by thoughtfulconservative

UPDATE: Thanks to steveegg of No Runny Eggs for pointing out The Green Papers. I’d been there before but had forgotten about them. I made some changes to the chart based on their information.

Almost half of the Republican delegates are up for grabs and don’t forget Maine’s Republican caucus over the weekend. Over half of the Democratic delegates are at stake.

First, since I love maps, I have to direct to Caffeinated Politics where Deke Rivers has posted a map of each television market broken down by counties.

Next Pew Hispanic Center breaks down the Hispanic vote in the February 5 states. looks at the independent vote during the primaries.

And if you’re not checking RealClearPolitics or, you’re just not politically geeky enough.

I’ve made a chart of the states involved, the number of delegates at stake and other particulars. Click the delegate count to open a link to RealClearPolitics polling data for that state (No link means RealClear doesn’t have any polls). Inspiration for this came from Mike’s America’s post. Data also came from the National Association of Secretaries of State. Semi-open primaries are ones in which folks can vote for either party, but might have to register as a member of that party to do so. UPDATE: Not all delegates may be determined on the primary/caucus date. See the Green Papers site above for more details.

  1. I’d check with The Green Papers. They have perhaps the best explanation of each state’s nomination process

    For example, California, Georgia, Tennessee (if a candidate gets 2/3rds), Alabama (which also has their at-large/bonus proportional, and their 3 state delegates going as “uncommitted”), and Oklahoma have Congressional-district-level winner-take-all schemes for the district-level delegates. Except for Alabama, they also have a statewide WTA for the at-large/bonus delegates.

  2. The above is for the Republican half.

  3. Thanks, Steve.

  4. It wasn’t that hard, really. I used a free program for the table and the sites listed for the data and cut and pasted it.

    It was something I couldn’t find in this form on the web, so I decided to make one.
