Romney gets 18 more delegates.

    9 from Guam and 9 from the Mariana Islands, where he won 87% of the votes. Sure, it's not a big haul, but it's looking like every single delegate is going to be important in this slogfest.

    Should there be a small prize for anyone who could point to these islands on a map? Are they part of the USA? Or just one of your colonies?

      What's the prize?? lol. I can do it!! I have an advantage, however: My uncle was on Saipan in WWII.

      Colonies? This is meant in the spirit of friendship and enlightenment Charles. Guam is an organized, unincorporated territory of the U.S. In WW2 about 10,000 Americans were killed in action on the Marianas and well over 60,000 Japanese.

    The loss of US fighting men in WW2 was horrific. Fighting the Japanese who felt they were defending their homeland cost many many lives. One can understand why the USA used the atomic bomb to shorten the war.

    But if Guam and the other islands are not part of the USA why do they have a say?

    And how long are they going to remain a colony?

      Yeah they are basically colonies just like Puerto Rico.

      Charles that's a good question. America's road to colonialism started inthe Philippines and here's what Mark Twain had to say about it: "We have been treacherous, but that was only in order that real good might come out of apparent evil..." Perhaps you should ask the people of Guam if they would like to lose all that comes with being an American "colony." The island isn't exactly a tourist attraction so maybe they'd like to throw off the imperial shackles, maybe they wouldn't, I don't know.

    I think Guam is a territory and the Marianas are a commonwealth. Or vice versa.

    I believe that Romney will be the eventual GOP presidential nomonee.  That is when the real fight begins.

        I was wondering if anybody here on Hubpages knows how, procedurally and physically, a candidate gets the actual delegate vote/count?  Is it a written piece of paper and what makes it different from the normal person's vote? I realize or have heard in the news videos that there are 'x' number of delegates in this primary and 'x' number of delegates in that state -- each one being different -- but how is the vote actually taken from the delegate and given to the candidate? (I've just recently become an American citizen, so I don't know about this stuff.)

          It's pretty complicated. Some states have winner-take-all, and some award delegates proportionally or by congressional districts. Also, some delegates are bound and some aren't. To become the GOP nominee, a candidate needs to get 1,144 delegates. This will tell you more:
