Realclearpolitics gives the following delegate count. Don't know which one is accurate.

Romney: 87

Santorum: 35

Gingrich: 32

Paul: 13

RCP only has 12 total delegates although Iowa has 25 delegates (which the NYT count reflects). The other differences are the numbers for MN and CO because those are projections since delegates aren't awarded from those states yet.

Ken, if Mitt had over one hundred and Newt had 35,before last night,how can numbers go down? I am confused on how this works.

I have only been watching the NYT counts so I hadn't seen the numbers you mentioned (not saying you didn't see them). I'm not sure.

the bottom line is that this race is far from over

Best link for delegates as this shows hard as well as soft.

Interesting article on how Romney could fail to get enough delegates:

http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/how-romney-could-fail-get-enough-delegates/365281

Quote:
Because most states in 2012 are allocated proportionally rather than winner-take-all, it’s really difficult to predict how the delegates would be awarded. Romney’s opponents will win delegates in states that he wins and he’ll get delegates in the states that he loses. But just for the sake of this exercise, if Romney were to win all of the delegates in all of the states that I identified above as solid or lean states, it would only get him to 1,008 delegates, according to the CNN calculator -- still short of the required 1,144.

What happens then is unclear, because it would be uncharted territory in the modern era. In theory, all of the candidates can take their delegates to the convention and fight it out there. However, its also possible that one of the other candidates would cut a deal with Romney to release their delegates before then. Either way, such a scenario does not seem out of the question.

I cannot imagine Santorum or Gingrich being willing to cut a deal with Romney - perhaps this is where Ron Paul's delegate leverage might come into play...

I totally agree. Especially after Romney has been so poisonous in his attacks. No, I see it more of delegates that are not bound switching after the first ballot. His analysis is quite interesting though; it's the first real argument I've seen against Romney.

Two more ways to examine the votes cast thuse far:

The average vote of the four current candidates in the eight state contests (Newt's average is based on contests where he appeared on the ballot).

Romney - 33.15%
Santorum - 26.81%
Gingrich - 19.94%
Paul - 16.78%

Since South Carolina (FL, NV, MO, MN, CO)-

Romney - 34.7
Santorum - 32.7
Gingrich - 19.1
Paul - 15.4
