    Thank you J. Clifford! Perfect to pin on the wall and fill in as the campaigns continue.

    It would be more helpful if you could indicate the number of pledged and unpledged delegates from each state. For example, for Democrats in Iowa, although they have 52 delegates in total, only 44 of them are pledged after the caucus voting. The other 8 are free to vote for whichever candidate they please. At the time of the Democratic Convention this summer, only 4051 of the 4764 delegates will be pledged during the primaries. 713 delegates (15%) will not be pledged.

    For both parties, if the current voting patterns continue, no candidate will have the nomination sealed before the conventions.

      I suppose I could include that, if the map was the size of the kitchen table. What I decided to do was to make the information legible, the resolution fitting the scale .
