Congratulatory phone calls, speeches, Associated Press headlines, it all makes it seem like Mitt Romney has already won the Republican nomination, doesn’t it?
In fact, it currently seems as though Romney only has about half of the 1,144 delegates required to win the Republican nomination.
At this point, according to one of the the only sites on the internet currently keeping an accurate tally of the actual delegate totals emerging from each state, Romney has around 600 delegates, while Ron Paul currently has about 200.
What’s really interesting is the fact that Ron Paul seems to be coming out with the majority of the delegates in quite a few states.
To this point, Paul has taken the majority of delegates in at least 11 or more states, while Romney has done the same in 19 states.
Although it’s likely Romney will gain many more delegates in days ahead of the RNC, Ron Paul will also continue to amass delegates as well, leaving Romney’s claim to already be the nominee in great doubt.
Don’t let the Associated Press-influenced mainstream media pull the wool over your eyes.
