The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 4 April Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.
All 68 district delegates (directly elected in the 4 April Primary) and the 10 At-Large delegates (elected by the 345 member Republican State Committee on 20 May) will go to the convention officially "Uncommitted". These delegates are listed as "Uncommitted" in the "Hard Total".
Reports indicate these 78 delegates are Bush supporters so they are listed as supporting Bush in the "Soft Unpledged" column.
