Chatting with Keith Olbermann about what really happened in Tuesday's Michigan primary. Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum tied where it counts: DELEGATES.
Media momentum fun and games in the GOP presidential race are behind us now. The race for delegates is on and supposed frontrunner Mitt Romney has only a bit over 10 percent of what he needs for the nomination.
It's complicated. There are only four states left that are 100 percent winner-take-all for delegates, offering a combined total of only 123 delegates out of the 1,144 needed to win. The rest are awarded by a variety of formulas that will allow all four contenders chances to rack up delegates without winning the entire state, possibly even preventing a frontrunner from reaching the magic number before the convention.
