Republican primary - delegate totals

The Republican candidates are competing for delegates at the primary elections and party caucuses.

'Super' delegates

The delegate totals include a number of 'super' delegates who are not tied to the results of the primary or caucuses in their state and have indicated they will vote for a particular candidate at convention when polled by AP.

A delegate is a party member with the power to vote at the Republican national convention, which takes place in August. It is the delegates' votes at the convention that will officially choose the party's presidential candidate.

The more state contests a candidate wins, the more delegates will be pledged to support them at the convention. To win a majority a candidate needs to secure the support of 1,144 delegates.
