Tuesday 6 March 2012: 55 of Tennessee's 58 delegates to the Republican National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders in today's Tennessee Presidential Primary.
27 district delegates, 3 from each of the 9 congressional districts, are to be allocated to the presidential contenders based on the primary results in each congressional district. [ByLaws of the Tennessee Republican Party. Article IX. Rule C. Section 1. and Section 4A.]
The 28 At-Large delegates are bound "winner-take-most" to presidential contenders based on the primary results statewide. [Article IX. Rule C. Section 1. and Section 4B.]
Proportional distribution and rounding: Beginning with the candidate who received the most votes, multiply [the percentage of votes received] by [28 National Convention Delegates] and divide by [total qualified vote]. Round any remainder up to the next whole number. Repeat for the next highest vote getter until all 28 delegates are allocated.
The 28 At-Large delegates include the 10 "at-large" and 18 bonus delegates apportioned to Tennessee. They do not include the 3 RNC delegates. These delegates are bound to Presidential candidates based on the results of the primary. Half are elected in the primary and half are appointed by the Executive Committee with the consent of the respective Presidential campaigns. When determining "half" divide the total number of At-Large delegates by 2. If there are fractional delegates, round up the number of delegates appointed by the Executive Committee and round down the number of delegates determined by the Primary. [Article IX. Rule C. Section 2.]
Just reflecting on the last week’s news cycle; Newt remained calm and dignified.
There is no equal to Newt’s experience and maturity on the issues of these perilous times.
Newt doesn’t need us - we need him.
Santorum's win of the so-called Trifecta a couple weeks back meant absolutely NOTHING. Zero.
Those states awarded a perfect ZERO committed delegates.
A Gingrich/West win would most likely be the most important and positive administration this country has had in a long time.
Santorum is going to win TN tomorrow. He has most of the early votes already. Unless a couple million TN voters vote for Newt. He is a cooked goose. I don’t have a problem with these feel good stories for the Newt fans because they have been so depressed for a month now seeing all those fourth place finishes. Tomorrow Newt will get his ONE win in his home state of Georgia.
This is great news to read this morning! Newt all the way to the White House in 2012!!!!!!
Wow, I did not know that. Thanks for that update. I saw (online) the Chris Wallace interview from yesterday, where he asked him about that (seems like I heard both states, now that you mention it), and his excuse was “I was polling at 2%, and didn’t have the organization,” or some such. To me, it looked really, really bad to put it that way. I think a smarter move would be to say “At the early stage, the campaign didn’t have the funds.” But hey, I guess pointing out your unpopularity might have seemed good at the time.
Newt is gaining momentum because he can articulate the Catholic position on religious freedom better than the whiner Santorum.
The establishment is scared to death of Newt. He knows where all the bodies are buried and is willing to talk about it and change things. I doubt they will allow him to win the nomination but he is exactly what this country needs right now.
RC2, you were doing well until the 2nd sentence. You feel the establishment “won’t let him” win? Well, last time I checked, the voters STILL get to decide who wins the nomination, and then the election ....the problem is, we conservative VOTERS can’t get our act together and UNITE.
Just STOP with this defeatest wobbly talk and BE positive!! Unite behind Newt and We the People can show the Establishment where to STEP OFF!!!
I wish more people realize ...there are WAY more of us than of them. Romney DEPRESSES turnout. This is a fact.
Newt WILL provide the starkest contract on EVERY front to Obama. Santorum, although a good man, isn’t up to the job and does NOT possess the statesmanlike demeanor or grasp of history as does Newt.
Don’t go so wobby on us ... we can’t win that way.
1 in 10 states tomorrow. That is all I am saying. Results are what matters and the number of states won. Newt - 1. Santorum - 4.
Tomorrow will be Super Newtsday. This looks so much like Newt’s last minute surge in South Carolina it’s not funny. It was already reported yesterday that 1/3 of early voters voted the last day of early voting (the beginning of the Newt surge). I predict Newt wins Tennessee by 3 or more. The South is coming home to Newt!
The Washington Times has apparently suggested a sticky note campaign where you post a sticky note on gas pumps that say something like...
Did you know that when Obama took office on January 20, 2009, the national average for a gallon of gasoline was $1.84. Keep that in mind when you vote in November. 2012.
Anyone but Obama 2012.
(I’d add, GO NEWT!)
Here’s a link where you can buy preprinted sticky notes.
2 + 2 = 4 ; NEWT = $2.50 a gallon GAS ; 2 + 2 = 4
GO away Naps,your comments are so predictable and old.
I was on the ground in SC, on the phones, and door to door. There were almost 10,000 calls made in SC the last 2 weeks... and the last 2 or 3 days, you could feel the momentum changing on the phones... Earlier, it was maybe 2 Newts out of 10, and by the day before the vote, it was 8 out of 10 for Newt. You could feel the change, and it happened very quickly in the final 72 hours. Newt went out of his way to salute the phone call and grassroots efforts in SC... please... please... there is still time to call for Newt, and get involved for Newt...
From Newt 2012: friday
Field and Phone Leaders, CALLING ALL HANDS ON DECK!!
Our national phone team has successfully called through the original 18,000 volunteer sign-ups. This has resulted in a refined list of volunteer prospects for all 50 states. In 3 weeks our national call team has increased by 300%, or 50 new people per week.
Our increased call capacity will help us now begin to make calls into Super Tuesday states or those close by that can assist and or deploy to active states.
... YOU CAN NOW CHOOSE THE STATE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO CALL
http://newtsnetwork.com/ (click Make the CAll in upper right hand corner)
NOTE: The list filters itself by time zones. It will not show you California at 10am Eastern Time because that is 7am Pacific Time and too early to call there. Once a states call list opens up the state name will be added to the dropdown list for you to call. (And in the reverse, Eastern Time Zones will be removed from the list as the night wears on.)
This new reality will enable us to be highly flexible in how we operate and target prospects for GOTV and or volunteer recruitment.
Please disseminate this information to your call teams and volunteer lists.
Cry me a river.
I never heard you complain when Santorum busted one on Newt as he was going into Florida already overwhelmed by millions of smear ads.
The talk was even that Ricky, at that point, would be getting out, but still he found time to take that parting shot at Newt.
What goes around comes around, and Newt is a Phoenix. Rick is spending news time now whining against the Drudge Report.
He reminds me of Linus, oblivious and unprepared for Lucy to dis the football from him.
