In the table above are the latest 2016 Alabama Republican Primary polls and aggregated PPD average are listed for the contest on March 1, 2016.

All 50 of Alabama’s delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to candidates the day of the Alabama Republican Primary. Of the 50, 21 district delegates are allocated to candidates on a “winner-take-most” basis based on the results of the primary in each congressional district. Each of the 7 congressional districts are assigned 3 National Convention delegates, but there is a voting threshold.

If a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%) or if only one candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, that candidate is allocated all 3 of the district’s delegates.

If no candidate receives a majority of the vote and more than 1 candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, the candidate with the most votes is allocated 2 delegates and the candidate with the next highest number of votes is allocated 1 delegate.

If no candidate receives 20% of the vote, the 3 district delegates are proportionally allocated to the candidates, while 29 (10 at-large, 16 bonus, 3 RNC) at-large delegates are allocated to candidates on a “winner-take-most” based on the statewide results of the primary.

If a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%) or if only one candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, that candidate is allocated all of the 29 at-large delegates.

If no candidate receives a majority of the vote and more than 1 candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, the 29 at-large delegates are to be proportionally allocated to the candidates receiving 20% or more the vote. If no candidate receives 20% of the vote, the 29 at-large delegates are proportionally allocated to the candidates.
