    Many of the delegate count numbers are guesses. The AP is notorious for this.

    To understand the actual delegate count a little better, watch the results of ACTUAL journalist Ben Swann's research:

    Ben Swann will give you more pertinent information in this 30min segment than the media has on the 2012 elections. Period.

    I think before Obama should be able to run for POTUS he should put forth a valid Birth Certificate... ALL of the experts who has seen Obama's Birth Certificate has called it a doctored Fake... Does the Law and Constitution mean nothing In America anymore?

    Where are the gutless Congress on this?


    When self proclaimed Communists are allowed in the Cabinet of the President of the United States... We have grounds for impeachment... Again where is the Gutless Congress on this????

    Weekly Lost Jobs Numbers are out today.... These are Obama's Department of Labor Numbers released every Thursday and can be found on Fox and Friends between 8:45 and 9:00 AM. Watch for them yourself if you want to be informed with the only RAW numbers released by the DOL... You won't hear them on any other network... I wonder why?

    I have been searching this myself. I think it is not too hard since you can get an excel spreadsheet then separate the states into binding,non-binding, winner take all, proportional.

    Non binding is the wild card, since you will have to look at each state and the final count.
