Superdelegates no more

by: Matt

Mon Jan 30, 2012 at 20:59:46 PM EST


After extensive research of state party rules, as well as consulting with the excellent folks at The Green Papers, DCW has determined that there are 5 additional states whose superdelegates aren't so super. They are not free to vote as they wish - instead, they are bound by their state's results. The states are: Idaho, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, and Utah. They join AZ, DE, FL, GA, KS, MI, MO, NH, NJ, NV, SC, and VT in not having unbound superdelegates.

What effect does this have on the count? It costs Romney 2 superdelegates, as we have to no longer count his two supporters from Maryland. This brings Romney's count down to 15. Gingrich and Santorum remain at 1.

Green Papers also believes Colorado and Wisconsin should also be stripped of their superdelegates, but DCW is not yet convinced, so the states will remain on the list. For now. (No supers from either state have endorsed a candidate).
