I see somewhat conflicting delegate numbers coming out of Super Tuesday. But the figures I saw begged McCain as now having 604 and thus a hair over 50% of the 1191 GOP delegates needed to win the GOP nomination. And second place Romney badly trailing at 244. On the dem side, its more confused but I saw Hillary at 900 and Obama at 824. With first place Hillary still 5.5% under 50% of the 2025 delegates needed for either to win. So even in a two person race, neither candidate is on a pace to win. The figure I don't have is the percentage of the electorate that has already had a chance to vote in a primary or caucus. But well over 50% of the States have already voted including the most populous ones of California and New York. On both sides, a favorite must break ahead or we will have deadlocked convention(s) is the contention of this thread.
