Latest 2016 Georgia Republican Primary polls and aggregate PPD polling average the March 1, Peach State contest on Super Tuesday, the SEC primary.
All 76 of Georgia’s delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to candidates on the day of the Georgia Republican Primary. The 42 district delegates are bound to candidates based on the primary results in each of the 14 congressional districts, with each congressional district being assigned 3 National Convention delegates.
If a candidate receives a majority of the vote–more than 50%–then that candidate is allocated all 3 of the district’s delegates.
If no candidate receives a majority of the vote, the candidate with the most votes (plurality) receives 2 delegates and the candidate receiving the next highest number of votes receives 1 delegate. [Rules of the Georgia Republican Party. 7.3(B)(3)]
34 statewide delegates (10 base at-large, 21 bonus, plus 3 RNC delegates) are bound to presidential contenders according to the statewide vote. A mandatory 20% threshold is required for a presidential contender to receive National Convention delegates. If no candidate receives 20%, the threshold is 15%, if no candidate receives 15%, the threshold is 10%. [Rules of the Georgia Republican Party. 7.3(B)(4)]
If a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%), or only 1 candidate meets the threshold, that candidate is allocated the 34 statewide delegates.
If no candidate receives a majority of the vote then, for each candidate receiving the threshold or more of the vote, delegates = [the number of votes received by that candidate] × [31 statewide delegates] ÷ [the statewide vote for those candidates received the threshold or more]. Each candidate receives the whole number of delegates (that is, round down to the whole number). If delegates remain, award them to the candidate receiving the most votes statewide (not sure of rounding). [Rules of the Georgia Republican Party. 7.3(B)(4)]
The 3 RNC party leader delegates, the National Committeeman, National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Georgia’s Republican Party are bound to the candidate receiving the most votes statewide. [Rules of the Georgia Republican Party. 7.3(B)(4)] [ssbp]
