Meanwhile The Crook and The Socialist split the state half-and-half. Perfect scenario for God Emperor Trump. Still can't believe Hillary is even a contender in the election though, I hate anyone who votes for her.

Not as late as Pennsylvania. We don't pretend to vote until next week.

Classic example of the spoiler effect! Instead of having candidates drop out, the answer is voting reform so as not to use first past the post.

Doesn't Donald get all 97 delegates if he's over 50%?

Ok can someone explain me why do the Democrats have more delegates than the Republicans? As in Trump won all 48 delegates, while Clinton took 104 against Sanders' 85.

Is it because the Republican side has more candidates to choose from?

The primaries are run by the individual parties, there's no particular reason they should match up. This is not the general election, democratic primary delegates and republican primary delegates never get compared to each other, they're only used within the party to pick who they'll nominate at their respective conventions, then we do this all over again except with just one person from each party.

The Republicans use a system of "bonus" delegates where states that are more Republican get more delegates than less Republican states. The Democrats pick an arbitrary number and assign delegates from there(resulting in various absurdities with partial delegates at times); said number is probably chosen in connection with the number of superdelegates to keep them both powerful enough to sway the election yet not so powerful the vote primaries and caucuses aren't obviously meaningless(so the number floats at about 20% no matter how many superdelegates there are).

NB: You'll have to scroll down on both links to get to the rules.

Superdelegates on the Democrat side.

Ok, follow-up question: why does the Dem side even have superdelegates, while the Rep side doesn't?

Yeah, can someone answer this? I am also curious. I assume it all evens out somehow, just curious.
