    Visualizing the 2012 Republican Delegate Count

    Mark Jackson

      I created this one because of a general lack understanding of how delegates are actually allocated by state. Also, most of the media reports on delegate counts are wrong. There are two scenarios: All Unbound and Bound. Depending on the strategy of the Ron Paul campaign, the delegates may invoke Rule 38 of the RNC to allow all delegates to act as free agents.

       

      I originally used the hover action to create a more dynamic experiance, but the results on server did not mirror desktop. I had to switch it to "select". Hopefully this will be corrected.
