Primaries: After South Carolina and Nevada
After today, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama still lead by small margins in the delegate count.
Here's an update of cumulative Primary results after today's Republican primary in South Carolina and today's Nevada caucuses (for both parties). Note that I am relying on TheGreenPapers.com again, and that most of these delegates are actually "soft" to one degree or another -- as in, not absolutely committed to a given candidate.
For earlier results, including a reasonably detailed account of the process's complexity, see my previous report.
Saturday, January 19: South Carolina Primary (Republican only)
This is an open primary, meaning non-Republicans can vote. Note that the national party's penalty for an early primary applies; South Carolina's Republican delegate total is half what it would have been. (This could could be overturned.) The South Carolina Democratic primary is next Saturday, January 26.
Saturday, January 19: Nevada Caucuses
Both parties' caucuses are closed. Because final selection of delegates happens in a later convention, neither Nevada party is penalized for holding its caucus before February 5.

Saturday, January 26: South Carolina (primary, Democrats only)
