Romney needs 46% of remaining delegates

In another sign that the end is nigh for non-Mitt Republican candidates, Mitt Romney needs 46% of the remaining delegates to claim the GOP crown. One fourth of his remaining need can come from winner take all California in June, where he leads polls by a healthy margin (43% to Sanotum’s 23%)

By definition, all the remaining candidates need 54% of the delegates to prevent Romney’s win. They have collectively won only 45% of the delegates on offer to date.

The specifics by candidate:

  • Santorum needs 69% of the remaining delegates to clinch the nomination
  • Gingrich needs 80% of the remaining delegates
  • Ron Paul needs 87% of the delegates.

Despite Santorum’s win in Louisiana last weekend, Romney’s “% of remaining delegates needed” barely changed.
