McCain is not mathematically assured of the GOP nomination!
Delegates!!! McCain is not a lock for the nominee.....here is the math.... Please repost this!!

Some are it again on this site, saying that McCain will be the nominee.....
I wish you people understood the delegate process and stop folding like a house of cards.....if that were the case, don't you think RP would have quit by now?
Do some research!!!!
When McCain reaches 1191 as declared by the MSM, that will really not be the case. He is not guaranteed all of those delegates.
HE MUST WIN THE 1191 DELEGATES AT THE CONVENTION!!!!
DID YOU GET THAT!!!!
HE DOES NOT WIN THE DELEGATES DURING THE PRIMARIES!!!
Bound or pledged delegates are committed to the winner of the primary to vote for that candidate in the first round.
Many states have yet to pick delegates. Of those that have, RP has very high delegate counts even though he hasn't won a single primary. How? Well people just simply apply. More of RP supporters are willing to become delegates than McCaine supporters.....Ask some here that have become RP delegates.
The primaries and caucases are nothing more than window dressing. Delegates are not chosen the day of the primary/caucas.
The only thing the primaries/caucases do is commit the BOUND/PLEDGED delegates to the winner either by winner take all or proportioned out.
At the convention, there will be bound.pledged and unbound/unpledged delegates. NOT ALL DELEGATES FOR EACH STATE ARE BOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The unbound/unpledged can vote for anyone!!!!!
At the convention, if McInsane does not get 51% of the delegate vote on the first round, then they vote again. In the next round, delegates can vote for whomever they want.
Read and learn please!!!!! and spread the word to everyone you can.
According to the sight below, here are the bound and unbound totals as of today.....McCain has 796 bound and 18 unbound delegates.
Now lets do some math:
McCain needs 395 bound delegates to reach 1191
Of the remaining states:
texas - 137 bound and 3 unbound
ohio - 88 UNBOUND
South Dakota - 24 bound and 3 unbound
wisconsin - 37 bound and 3 unbound
vermont - 17 bound
idaho - 26 bound and 6 unbound
hawaii - 20 bound
pennsylvannia - 74 UNBOUND
oregon - 27 bound and 3 unbound
puerto rico - 20 bound and 3 unbound
north carolina - 69 bound
indianna - 27 bound and 30 UNBOUND
kentucky - 45 bound
mississippi - 36 bound and 3 unbound
RI - 17 bound and 3 unbound
nebraska - 30 bound and 3 unbound
new mexico - 29 bound and 3 unbound
There are 561 bound delegates left of which Mr. McCain must win 71% of to reach 1191.....now when was the last time he won with 71% of the vote?
Now Huck will probably win Nebraska, Kentucky, miss, and SD.......if this happens, then McCain would have to win just about every remaining delegate, and that is not likely to happen.
Basically, McCain would almost have to run the board of the other states to win......not likely.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Vermont is the only winner take all state remaining, so even if McCain wins a state, he does not get all of the bound delegates.
THE MSM IS LUMPING BOTH BOUND AND UNBOUND IN THEIR TOTALS.......VERY MISLEADING
