What’s The Score? Inside the Delegate Process the Media Doesn’t Want to Talk About

By: Ronnie Kurtz Finally, it’s Super Tuesday! Anyone happen to know the delegate count? It’s Romney—207, Santorum—86, Paul—46 and Gingrich—39, right? Or is it Romney—180, Santorum—90, Gingrich—29 and Paul—23? Wait, it’s Romney—203, Santorum—92, Gingrich—33, Paul—25, isn’t it? As these conflicting accounts—all from reputable news sources with their own stable of followers and subscribers—indicate, determining the delegate count following primary voting […]

By: Wes Robinson Well, things just got a lot more interesting in the GOP nomination race. The South Carolina primary on January 21st was supposed to have been the walk-off home run for Mitt Romney’s nomination chances.

The New Hampshire Debates and the Republican Nomination

By: Gautam Narula The sheer number of Republican debates has been overwhelming. In 2011, there were 13 major debates—not counting several minor debates and forums, or the abortive Newsmax debate hosted by Donald Trump. The deluge continued with two debates, a mere ten hours apart, held in New Hampshire on January 7  and January 8, just days before the first […]
