The latest 2016 Pennsylvania Republican Primary polls taken for the contest on Tuesday, April 26. There are 71 delegates awarded on a winner-take-all basis. In the Keystone State, 54 of the 71 delegates to the Republican National Convention will be directly elected (their names appear on the ballot) in what is called a “loophole” primary.

Each of the 18 Congressional Districts are allocated 3 delegates. Rule 8.4 of the Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania’s Rules states that all delegates elected by Congressional District “…shall run at large within the Districts and shall not be officially committed to any particular candidate on the ballot.”

17 delegates–including 10 base at-large delegates plus 4 bonus delegates and 3 RNC delegates–of the Commonwealth’s 71 delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound on the first ballot to the candidate who receives the most votes in the 2016 Pennsylvania Republican Primary. The delegates are released if the candidate withdraws, suspends, or terminates his/her campaign or publicly releases his/her delegates, according to Rule 8.3.
