Today there are GOP primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, with a caucus in Hawaii. Even if Romney wins these competitions, it is not guaranteed that he will get enough delegates to secure his nomination. This longer nominating process can be directly attributed to new RNC rules that have fewer winner-take-all contests and more races which award delegates proportionally.
Some people think a longer nomination is more likely to create chaos at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele told Mother Jones yesterday that he wanted the RNC to change its rule to make it easier for there to be a brokered convention.
Should the GOP return to the old system and have most of their contests be winner-take-all? Tell us what you think, vote now on Facebook! We will post the results in the afternoon along with the best responses.
