I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Delegate Count After Michigan

Here is what I have so far:


  1. Romney.....66
  2. McCain......30
  3. Huckabee..17
  4. Thompson..8
  5. Paul..........4
  6. Uncomm.....3
  7. Giuliani.......1
  8. Hunter........1
So, from all the Legacy Media coverage, you would think that Romney, McCain, and Huckabee were all somehow roughly equivalent to another so far. Not so. In the delegate count, Romney has more than twice the delegate count as does MCain, and McCain has a little less than double the number Huckabee has, who, in turn, has twice what Thompson has, and we are only four states in!

  1. Clinton....97 (24 w/o MI)
  2. Uncomm.55
  3. Obama....25
  4. Edwards..18
If the Michigan delegates are counted, Hillary has a commanding lead over Obama, and if they are not, she is behind by one, with the uncommitteds being double what they have. Edwards is still in it, with 7 delegates less than Obama.

I expect a real fight at the Democrat Convention over whether or not to count the Michigan delegates.

February the 5th will be the date that separates the contenders from the pretenders.
