Charts from the Abulsme.com 2012 Republican Delegate Count Graphs page. When a candidate gets down to 0%, they have clinched the nomination. If they get above 100%, they have been mathematically eliminated. The first chart is by date, the second is by “% of Delegates Already Allocated”. These numbers include estimates of the eventual results of multi-stage caucus processes which will be refined as the later stages occur.
Today we have some updates to yesterday’s Oregon results.
First of all, it turns out Santorum gets one more delegate than it looked like yesterday, and Gingrich gets one less.
Second, the remaining two Oregon superdelegates stated they will echo the primary results and support Romney.
New summary for Oregon: Romney 21, Santorum 3, Paul 3, Gingrich 1
So net for the day: Romney +2, Santorum +1, Gingrich -1
So Romney’s % of remaining needed to win drops from 21.4% to 21.2%.
He needs 167 more delegates to get to the 1144 magic number by my estimate.
