Btw, I am unable to access any "Delegate 101" on the CNN source page; if I access that page on a browser that runs its javascript, I'm unable to access the page at all, and if I access it on a browser with its javascript disabled, "Delegate 101" appears as a string but isn't clickable and has no information attached to it. --Pi zero (talk) 21:51, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
In that case, I think the only thing I sourced from it (the Delegate 101 section) was the total number needed. It may already be in another source, but better to just remove it entirely if needed --DannyS712 (talk) 22:34, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Nevermind, USA today includes the 1991 are needed: "On Tuesday, 14 states will determine one-third of the pledged delegates – 1,344 out of the 1,991 needed to win the nomination..." (underline added) --DannyS712 (talk) 22:35, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Review of revision 4549253 [Not ready][edit]

  • Two-part problem with SC delegate counts.
  • The numbers of SC delegates given here are not consistent with those now in the source.
  • The source (well, the second page it sends you do for details) says the SC delegates won't be "officially" awarded until... I think it was May 31. It seems advisable to make some remark about that here; likely doesn't have to be long-winded, but seemingly it isn't quite true to say that so-and-so secured such-and-such-number of the states pledged delegates.
I'm suspending my pre-review for now, since any change in the SC delegate numbers would then propagate through to other numbers, making it harder to keep track during pre-review.

Not sure what second page you're looking at - I scrolled down to "South Carolina Primary Pledged Delegates" on the page. I'll update it with the new numbers --DannyS712 (talk) 17:52, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Also, Klobuchar just dropped out. If this was already published, I would write that separately, but since it isn't, I've updated. --DannyS712 (talk) 19:14, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
