Frontloading HQ had an excellent Christmas Eve post on the “final” GOP Delegate Selection Rules. The Democratic Party has long insisted on proportional allocation of delegates (to candidates exceeding a 15% threshold), while GOP contests have traditionally been winner-take-all. This year, the early (pre-April 1, 2012) contests are supposed to be proportional, but with a lot of twists FHQ describes. We also have added the Republican 2012 Delegate Selection Summary to our References Page (The Other Guys section).
