Delegate Math

These numbers from the Romney camp are self-evident nonsense.

McCain has roughly 720 delegates.

Romney has 256.

There are 963 left to go.

1199 are needed to win the nomination.

That means that McCain needs 471 to win the nomination.

Romney needs 935.

In other words, McCain needs to win 49% of the remaining delegates to win the nomination

Romney would need to win 97% of the remaining delegates.

Or he would need to get the votes of all of Huckabee's delegates and to win 77% of what's left.

This thing is over.

I know you're Canadian, so you can't be expected to know U.S. flag etiquette, but the U.S. flag is supposed to be displayed when hung against a wall with the union to the top left. If hanging horizontally, it should opposite the way you have it. If vertical, the union should also be upper left.
