Above is the table listing the latest 2016 Texas Democratic Primary polls and aggregate PPD polling average for Lone Star State contest on March 1, Super Tuesday. Of the 252 total delegates, 222 of the delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to candidates on the day of the Texas Democratic Primary.

There is a mandatory 15% threshold required for a candidate to receive delegates at either the congressional district or statewide level.

However, if a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%), then the candidate is allocated all 3 of the district’s delegates. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote and at least 1 candidate receives 20% or more 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. If no candidate receives 20% of the vote then the top 3 vote getters each receive 1 delegate.

If a candidate receives a majority of the vote (more than 50%) that candidate receives all 47 of the remaining at-large delegates. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote and at least 2 candidates receive 20% or more of the vote, the 47 at-large delegates are allocated proportionally among those candidates receiving 20% or more of the vote. There are 145 district delegates pledged proportionally to candidates based on the primary results in each of the State’s 31 Senatorial Districts.

There are also 77 delegates are to be pledged to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide, including 48 at-large National Convention delegates and 29 Pledged PLEOs.
