Rules matter

Via Monkey Cage, Michael Franz produced this chart showing how the GOP presidential race would be looking if the Republicans awarded delegates proportionally, as the Democrats do, rather than winner-take-all:Romney and McCain would be pretty much tied. Impressive.

If only Republicans had a sense of proportion, we’d still have Romney to kick around…However, the strategic clarity their system provides is admirable. The democratic system is almost European in its proportionality, and therefore, more confusing and probably more existential.
