Most states send delegates to the convention that proportionally reflect the popular vote of each candidate in a caucus or primary. For example, if a presidential candidate won 60 percent of the primary vote or 60 percent of delegates in a caucus vote, he or she would be assured six out of every 10 delegates from that state.
A few states adopt a winner-takes-all process in which the top candidate gains the automatic support of all delegates. But not all delegates are obligated to support a specific candidate at the national convention based on the popular vote. Those rules vary by state. In Iowa, for example, all delegates are unpledged. Many states also have “superdelegates” who are uncommitted and are often elected officials.
The delegate information used here is provided by The Associated Press, and the totals include pledged and unpledged delegates.
