Who picked up the most delegates Saturday

You can’t tell whose winning if you don’t keep score.

The Washington Post story in the morning newspaper tells you who won how many states but fails to report the number of total delegates each candidate has so far and how many each picked up on Saturday in the caucuses and primaries. There is not a graphic in sight.

In print the paper tells readers how many delegates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had “before” Saturday but not the results from Saturday. For the Republicans there is no delegate count. Online the paper this morning is carrying a CNN story that was posted before the polls closed, basically an advancer.

The New York Times has a graphic that tells the tale in a glance:


As you can see, though each won two states, Ted Cruz closed the delegate gap on Donald Trump, and though Sanders won two states to Clinton’s one, she extended her delegate count.

If you wish to keep track of the delegate count on a state-by-state basis, The Wall Street Journal has an updated graphic with those details.

Politico also has a graphic, too.

Real Clear Politics has a state-by-state delegate count graphic for both the Republicans and the Democrats.

There are a few minor discrepancies between the reports as to just how many delegates were awarded in each state.

Interestingly, the last poll in Kansas showed Trump winning by 6 points, but Cruz won by really 25 points. Could that Thursday debate have finally put a dent in Trump’s professional wrestling-style of in-you-face confrontation and snarling insults?

    Republican voters waking up to Trump reality?

  2. Rubio also seems to be losing steam. Doubt he can win his own home state of Florida.

  3. Steve says:

    Yes and Rubio supporters won’t support Trump.
    I think Cruz beats Clinton if that’s what we have in November.

    If Sanders manages to find his “path to victory”, all bets are off.
    But once a campaign and the candidate, start talking about paths to victory, it’s already over.
    The DNC has the candidate they wanted.

    Reblogged this on Nevada State Personnel WATCH.

  5. Nyp says:

    Today’s Second Amendment moment:

    “The pastor of a prominent Idaho church was shot and critically wounded in the church’s parking lot Sunday, a day after he delivered the invocation at a campaign rally for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, authorities told NBC News.”

  6. A Trump supporter?

  7. Steve says:

    Sad and interesting.
    The shooter has not been found yet.
    Wonder what the motive will be….not that Nyp will take any interest in following up on it. Nyp’s only interest in the incident is its use as a hammer to confiscate all weapons from everyone except his own bodyguards!

  8. Rincon says:

    While Steve seems to think that any nut case should be able to buy all of the firearms and ammo he wants, possibly including machine guns, missile launchers and hand grenades. Is there no one in the middle?

  9. Steve says:

    While Rincon likes to make wild assumptions based on nothing, Nyp will continue to post hype with no followup!

  10. Barbara says:

    Louisiana’s returns are interesting. Trump was a huge winner in the early voting totals, but Cruz was the choice for those voting on election day indicating that the debate probably did have some impact.

    With Rubio out of the race, Cruz would have taken all four states. Ditto for Kasich.

    It still boggles my mind that the ruling elites believe they can give the nomination to anyone but Trump or Cruz at a brokered convention.

    Tuesday should be interesting. I doubt Rubio or Kasich will win any state making it obvious it is a 2 man race. The only reason for either to stay in would be to deny Cruz the nomination. Those who are truly against Trump will need to publicly choose and endorse Cruz and call for at least Rubio to suspend his campaign.

  11. Rincon says:

    I note that the “wild assumptions” go undenied. Concession noted.

  12. Steve says:

    No need to deny the absolutely absurd rantings made by someone who was obviously beer blogging at the time!

  13. Rincon says:

    Just like many politicians, you will not clearly state your position, so I inferred and gave you every opportunity to correct my conclusions. As with many politicians, you refuse to do so; therefore, as many voters do, I’ll assume whatever I please.

  14. Steve says:

    As the accuser, it is on you to prove your assumption.

    Show us where I made any such statement.

  15. Rincon says:

    I usually refuse to discuss something with someone who has nothing to say. My mistake.

  16. Steve says:

    Knew you couldn’t prove your accusation.

    Concession is noted, again.

  17. Rincon says:

    My words: “While Steve seems to think…”

    verb: seem; 3rd person present: seems; past tense: seemed; past participle: seemed; gerund or present participle: seeming

    give the impression or sensation of being something or having a particular quality.
    “Dawn seemed annoyed”
    synonyms: appear (to be), have the appearance/air of being, give the impression of being, look, look as though one is, show signs of being, look to be;

    You GIVE THE IMPRESSION that you want all controls on guns removed. I never claimed to be able to read your thoughts and you certainly avoid stating them. I know English is hard, but please use the dictionary when these difficult words come up. The hope was that you would call it a false impression and correct it. Since you don’t care to have a well defined position, I suppose there’s nothing left to discuss.

  18. Steve says:

    No, I don’t.

    You made crap up. You still have not shown, in any way, my words that prove your accusation.

  19. Rincon says:

    Good night, Steve.
