2012 Republican Delegate Count: Partial Nevada Results

Chart from the Abulsme.com 2012 Republican Delegate Count Graphs page.

So, Nevada is being very slow in providing results for their caucuses.  I waited and waited, but as of 22:00 UTC, I decided it was time to go ahead and post today’s update even though the final delegate counts for Nevada are not yet fully determined.  As of an update posted around 14 UTC, The Green Papers gives 12 delegates to Romney, 4 to Gingrich, 3 to Paul and 1 for Santorum…  with 8 yet to be determined.  These are estimates pending the final vote counts.  I imagine I’ll be posting an update tomorrow with the disposition of at least some of those 8 delegates.

Based on the results so far though, despite actually getting some delegates this time since it was a proportional contest, only Romney actually did well enough to improve their overall position in the race.  Romney needs a slightly smaller percentage of the remaining delegates to cinch the nomination that he did yesterday.  For everybody else, even though they got some delegates, they did not get enough delegates to actually be catching up with Romney.  They are only falling further behind.
