Above is the table listing the latest 2016 Texas Republican Primary polls and aggregate PPD polling average for Lone Star State contest on March 1, Super Tuesday. All 155 of the delegates to the Republican National Convention are bound to candidates in the day of the Texas Republican Primary.

The 108 district delegates are allocated to candidates based on the voting results in each of the 36 congressional districts, each with 3 delegates a piece.

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.

If no candidate receives a majority of the vote and only 1 candidate receives 20% or more of the vote, the 47 at-large delegates are allocated proportionally to the candidate(s) receiving 20% or more of the vote and the candidate receiving the next highest number of votes. If no candidate receives 20% of the vote, allocate the 47 at-large delegates proportionally.
